New: Expect Chaos – 2024 NBA Draft Primer

6/16/24 – Today marks the final day for international players to withdraw from the 2024 NBA Draft, and we saw a number of surprising announcements, the biggest being Izan Almansa choosing to pull his name from the draft, with an eye on 2025. Izan could be headed back to Europe or possibly to the NBL. He had an ok season last year with the Ignite but didn’t live up to expectations… Read More

2024 NBA Mock Draft

1-2TeamPlayerUpdated 6/16/24 Comp.
1HawksZaccharie RisacherSF – JL Bourg (France) – HT: 6-9 – WT: 205 – WING: 6-10 1/2 – Int.05 – The Hawks will have a tough choice between Risacher, Sarr and Clingan. Risacher has been hugely impressive this season for JL Bourg and would bring a high upside two-way wing to the Hawks franchise. His productivity playing against pros at just 18 years old can’t be overlooked. He’s got good size on the wing with excellent shooting and standout defense. Top French Prospectsbigger Mike Miller, Deni Avdija+
2WizardsAlexandre SarrC – Perth Wildcats, NBL (France) – HT: 7-1 – WT: 224 – WING: 7-4 1/4 – Int.05 – The Wizards would be elated if Sarr falls to no.2. He’s a great upside swing and would bring a much needed influx of talent up front to a Wizards franchise that really needs to get this pick right. His offense is still a work in progress but he’s got special defensive traits and versatility. Top French ProspectsEvan Mobley
3RocketsDonovan ClinganC – UConn – HT: 7-3 – WT: 282 – WING: 7-6 3/4 – So – The Rockets could go a number of ways here, one of which is trading this pick for more immediate help. Clingan flew up draft boards over the second half of the season and is being considered by all the teams at the top of the draft. He could the target of a trade-up and this seems like a likely spot.Walker Kessler, Marc Gasol 
4SpursStephon CastleSG – UConn – HT: 6-7 – WT: 210 – WING: 6-9 – Fr – The Spurs need an upgrade at guard and this would be an awesome fit. Nikola Topic could be an option here but his two knee injuries this year could cause him to slide. Castle brings defensive intensity and athleticism to the guard position and he has plenty of promise on the offensive end. His game is unrefined but he’s got all the tools, the work ethic and a ton of natural talent.SGA lite
5PistonsReed Sheppard SGKentucky – HT: 6-3 – WT: 182 – WING: 6-3 1/4 – Fr – Sheppard has the versatility to play on or off the ball and would be a nice addition to the Pistons backcourt. He’s an elite 3pt shooter with high BBIQ and feel for the game and he finished the season shooting a ridiculous 52% from 3pt land. He’s also a pesky defender with great hands, who plays with intensity. He has some limitations but the production is off the charts and the tape doesn’t lie.Mike Bibby  
6HornetsCody Williams   SF – Colorado – HT: 6-8 – WT: 178 – WING: 7-1 – Fr – Williams had an up and down year but his flashes of upside are special. The Hornets are ready to get to winning basketball games and could opt for a more NBA ready player, but adding a talent like Williams will be hard to pass.Cam Reddish+
7BlazersTidjane SalaunPF – Cholet, France – HT: 6-10 – WT: 205 – WING: 7-2 – Int.05 – This might seem too high for Salaun but he’s got as much upside as any player in this draft class and has already been productive playing against grown men, as a 18 year old. Plus it seems like a Mike Schmitz type of pick. Salaun is a freaky athletic and talented forward who is a high energy player, an awesome driver and an impressive 3pt shooter for his size (although the percentages need to improve). He has a chance to be special – and the Blazers can afford to go with a boom or bust, home-run swing type of pick. Top French ProspectsMPJ
8Spurs (Raptors)Matas BuzelisSF – G League Ignite – HT: 6-10 – WT: 197 – WING: 6-10 – USA04 – Buzelis is probably more of a high-end role player than a star. After a slow start Buzelis improved over the course of the season and is very much in the high lottery conversation. He’s an all around talent who didn’t shoot the ball well this year but has good form and shows promise. I believe he’ll shoot it well at the next level. Elite 25Mike Dunleavy Jr.
9GrizzliesDalton KnechtSG – Tennessee – HT: 6-6 – WT: 212 – WING: 6-9 – Sr – Knecht might not be the highest upside player but he’s one of the premier shooters in the draft and is also a big time athlete, a fierce competitor and clutch shot-maker. The Grizzlies are ready to win basketball games and adding a player like Knecht will bring immediate impact on the wing.Klay, Brent Barry+
10JazzDevin CarterSG – Providence – HT: 6-3 – WT: 193 – WING: 6-8 1/4 – Jr – An efficient guard who impacts all aspects of the game. Has a lot of strength and toughness and is a big time shot maker and a standout defender. One of the more polished prospects in this year’s class who should be able to come in and contribute right away. Marcus Smart lite
11BullsNikola TopicPG – Serbia – HT: 6-6 – WT: 201 – WING: NA – Int.05 Topic has a partially torn ACL and it’s a bit concerning to see a prospect have two knee injuries within a few months. He’s no longer likely to be a top 5 pick and could fall to the late lottery. rich man’s Dragic
12Thunder (Rockets)Robert Dillingham PG – Kentucky – HT: 6-2 – WT: 164 – WING: 6-3 – Fr – A walking bucket at the PG position, Dillingham can score off the bounce and from deep and has really proved himself as a passer. At just 164lbs he’s undersized for the pro game but is a dynamic player who changes the pace of the game when he’s on the court. Brandon Jennings  
13KingsJa’Kobe Walter SG – Baylor – HT: 6-5 – WT: 198 – WING: 6-10 – Fr – A high-scoring 2-guard with big time talent and athleticism who can really stroke the 3-ball. Has s crystal clear NBA role as a perimeter shot-maker. If his to-the-basket game improves it’ll take his game to a new level.Bradley Beal
14Blazers (Warriors)Ron Holland SF – G League Ignite – HT: 6-7 – WT: 196 – WING: 6-10 1/2 – Fr – Holland is a powerful and explosive athlete on the wing who has shown improvements in his shot-making and self-creation abilities but still has a lot of development ahead of him. If his 3pt shot is for real he’ll be a high level starter and possible star. He’s one of the youngest players in the draft class and has a decent floor as a high energy forward who impacts multiple aspects of the game.Jaylen Brown, RJ Barrett, MKG
15HeatZach Edey C – Purdue (Canada) – HT: 7-5 – WT: 299 – WING: 7-10 3/4 – Sr – Edey has some question marks about how his game will translate to the NBA; can he defend at the NBA level and keep up with the speed of the game? But he’s also an impactful presence in the paint and could bring big production in short spurts.Yao Ming lite, Boban+
1676ersTristan da SilvaPF – Colorado (Germany) – HT: 6-9 – WT: 217 – WING: 6-10 1/4 – Sr. One of the better shooters in college ball who also has good size and decent movement skills. Isn’t a flashy player but is fundamentally sound and looks ready to play a role early in his NBA career.Keegan Murray, Andrew Nicholson +
17LakersJared McCain SG – Duke – HT: 6-3 – WT: 203 – WING: 6-3 1/2 – Fr A sweet-shooting combo guard with a smooth game. Doesn’t have elite athleticism but has big time skills and is a great decision maker on the court. His 3pt shooting sets him apart but he’ll have to improve as a driver/finisher.Gary Trent Jr.
18MagicKel’el WareC – Indiana – HT: 7-0 – WT: 230 – WING: 7-4 1/2 – So – Ware had a big sophomore season, his first at Indiana, improving in all aspects of the game and showing a better competitive fire. His upside could be too much to pass on at this point in the draft.Jarrett Allen, Lorenzen Wright
19Raptors (Pacers)Yves Missi C – Baylor (Cameroon) – HT: 6-11 – WT: 229 – WING: 7-2 – Fr – Missi has huge upside as a defender and a rim runner. His best basketball is far ahead of him and he’s just scratching the surface of how good he can be. He’s getting more comfortable with the ball in his hands and showed impressive flashes on the offensive end during his freshman season. stronger Nic Claxton, Jarrett Allen+ 
20CavsIsaiah CollierPG – USC – HT: 6-3 – WT: 205 – WING: 6-4 3/4 – Fr – Collier had an up and down season for the Trojans, missing time with an injury and showing some limitations as a shooter. He’s a powerful driver and a skilled passer who’s best basketball is ahead of him but he might not be that elite PG prospect we thought he was.bulky Stephon Marbury, Deron Williams
21Pelicans (Bucks)Kyshawn GeorgeSG – Miami (Switzerland) – HT: 6-8 – WT: 206 – WING: 6-10 1/4 – Fr– A jumbo-sized guard/wing with big time upside ability. He gets where he wants on the court despite not having a great first step or quickness and he has shown a nice 3pt shot, hitting over 40% from 3 this year. A standout and versatile defender.TJ Warren-ish, DerMarr Johnson
22SunsTyler KolekPG – Marquette – HT: 6-3 – WT: 190 – WING: NA – Jr – A true floor general with an elite feel for the game and a great 3pt shot. Should be an immediate impact player at the next level and a great pick for a team looking to compete next year. Steve Nash lite
23Bucks (Pelicans)Carlton CarringtonPG – Pittsburgh – HT: 6-5 – WT: 195 – WING: 6-8 – Fr – A high upside point guard who can penetrate, pass and shoot the rock. Needs to add strength and work on his finishing. Was an underrated recruit who had a big time freshman season.MCW, Dejounte Murray
24Knicks (Mavs)Johnny Furphy  SG – Kansas (Australia) – HT: 6-8 – WT: 202 – WING: NA – Fr – One of the hottest prospects in the land over the second half of the season, Furphy is a tall SG with a sweet release on his jumper. He’ll need to get stronger but has excellent athleticism, feel for the game and tons of natural talent. He showed nice flashes on the defensive end.Cam Johnson
25KnicksDaRon Holmes IIPFDayton – HT: 6-9 – WT: 236 – WING: 7-1 – Jr – A well rounded big man who can bang in the paint and step out and hit the 3. Not the sexiest player but beats you with fundamentals.Kevon Looney
26Wizards (Clippers)Jaylon TysonSF – California – HT: 6-7 – WT: 218 – WING: 6-8 – Jr. – A strong 6-7 wing who has taken his game to a new level and put himself in the mid first round conversation. A productive scorer and a high level athlete.Wilson Chandler
27T-WolvesKyle FilipowskiPF – Duke – HT: 7-0 – WT: 230 – WING: 6-10 1/2 – So – An excellent shooter and overall offensive talent with good passing vision for a 7-footer. Rebounds the ball well but can also get pushed around inside and will have to toughen up on defense.Keith Van Horn
28NuggetsPacome Dadiet SF – Ratiopharm Ulm (France) – HT: 6-8 – WT: 210 – WING: NA – Int.05 – A high energy wing who plays both ends, makes quick decisions with the ball and plays with all-out hustle. A good finisher and capable 3pt shooter.
29Jazz (Thunder)Tyler SmithPFG League Ignite – HT: 6-10 – WT: 224 – WING: 7-1 – A bouncy and talented big man with a nice shooting stroke and a ton of confidence in his outside shot. He looked like one of the best prospects on the Ignite team this year and has some very clear NBA-level skills. ArticleDrew Gooden
30CelticsBaylor Scheierman SG – Creighton – HT: 6-6 – WT: 205 – WING: NA – Sr – A complete wing who can score inside and out and rebounds at a high level. Looks the part of a NBA role player who can impact the game with his toughness, rebounding and energy play.Christian Braun
