The NBA Draft is right around the corner. So take a break from all that NBA Finals coverage and read up on who your team is going to select in the first round with this NBA mock draft.
The NBA Draft is almost here as June 26th is right around the corner, and for all 28 teams who will be sitting at home and watching the Golden State Warriors take on the Cleveland Cavaliers, it cannot come soon enough.
Everyone who has been a fan of a team that has severely underperformed knows that the NBA draft is a sacred day where you get a glimpse of how your team will be structured in the coming years. One player can become the next Michael Jordan or LeBron James. The problem is deciding who that player is going to be in this year’s draft.
A lot of people are betting on D’Angelo Russell being a top performer in this rookie class. The guy is NBA ready and has extremely mature habits from a point guard. He rarely turns the ball over and makes difficult passes look easy. But because of his lack of athleticism and a stigma surrounding taller point guards, he probably will fall out of the top three picks.
At the top of the draft, Karl-Anthony Towns and Jahlil Okafor are most likely going to be first and second-overall. Towns will most likely edge out Okafor in the end for the first pick because of how large his upside is. However, Okafor can flat-out score the basketball. If the Minnesota Timberwolves want to risk it on a scoring big man, they might draft Okafor.
Until the moment of truth, here is a mock of the 2015 NBA Draft.
Next: No. 1: Minnesota Timberwolves
