Draft Express releases their latest NBA mock draft

Over the last few years, Draft Express has become one of, if not the, elite website for the latest on the NBA Draft.

On Thursday, they released their first detailed mock draft of the year and to no one’s surprise, Kansas Jayhawks’ forward Andrew Wiggins is the projected top pick.

Milwaukee will be looking to draft the best talent available here, but it doesn’t hurt that they have a fairly glaring hole at the swingman position. With Larry Sanders’ situation looking unstable at the moment, they will certainly give Joel Embiid a hard look here as well, depending on the results of his medical examination, as they were forced to start Zaza Pachulia for much of the season. Either way they will need to somehow address their leaky defense, which ranked second worst in the NBA last season.

Wiggins is their top overall prospect (and mine).

Rounding out the top five, they project the Philadelphia 76ers to select Duke Blue Devils’ forward Jabari Parker, the Orlando Magic to nab Wiggins’ teammate, center Joel Embiid, the Utah Jazz to pair Australian point guard Dante Exum with Trey Burke and the Boston Celtics to take Kentucky Wildcats’ power forward Julius Randle.
