2018 NBA Mock Draft

June 19, 2018

 

IT IS FINALLY NBA DRAFT WEEK! 

 

NBA Draft week is my favorite week of the year. All of the rumors, misinformation, and smokescreens flying around makes for a fun time on NBA Twitter and this year's draft figures to be a wild one. The first pick appears to be locked in but beyond that, it's anybody's guess.

 

How high will Michael Porter, Jr. go after missing most of his freshman season at Missouri? How low will Luka Doncic fall after being a consensus Top 2 pick all season and winning the Euroleague's Most Valuable Player award? What will the Cleveland Cavaliers do to entice LeBron James to stay? Who will the Philadelphia 76ers add to The Process? Will an All-Star like Kawhi Leonard, Kyle Lowry or Kemba Walker be dealt? Will the Memphis Grizzlies "blow it up" and deal their aging, oft-injured stars?

 

Nobody knows anything which should up the potential for chaos between now and the end of Thursday night but I took a stab at putting together a mock draft. Given the potential for volatility at the top of the draft, I have very little faith in its accuracy. Therefore, I put this together based on who I'd pick if I was the GM of each team mixed with some of the scuttlebutt surrounding each franchise.
