NBA Mock Draft #2 (First Round Only)

When typing “Igor Kokoskov” on google, the second thing that comes up on the suggested search is “Igor Kokoskov Luka Doncic”. If you’re wondering what Phoenix will do at 1 just stop. The Suns new coach happens to have coached the potential first pick in Europe and is said to have a great relationship with him. Coincidence that they bring him in when they have the option to snag the Euro star Doncic at the top of the draft? I think not. The Suns are incredibly desperate for a franchise point guard, especially with little to no chance of getting one in free agency. The last one they had was Steve Nash around a decade ago. The Suns also have plans to target Clint Capela in free agency, which makes it seem even more likely that they are not planning on drafting a big at 1.

  1. Phoenix Suns: PG Luka Doncic (Real Madrid)
  2. Sacramento Kings: C DeAndre Ayton (Arizona)
  3. Atlanta Hawks: C Mo Bamba (Texas)
  4. Memphis Grizzlies: PF/C Marvin Bagley (Duke)
  5. Dallas Mavericks: PF Wendell Carter (Duke)
  6. Orlando Magic: PG Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (Kentucky)
  7. Chicago Bulls: SG Mikal Bridges (Villanova)
  8. Cleveland Cavaliers: PG Trae Young (Oklahoma)
  9. New York Knicks: PF Jaren Jackson (Michigan State)
  10. Philadelphia 76ers: SF Michael Porter Jr. (Missouri)
  11. Charlotte Hornets: PG Collin Sexton (Alabama)
  12. Los Angeles Clippers: F Miles Bridges (Michigan State)
  13. Los Angeles Clippers: F/C Robert Williams (Texas A&M)
  14. Denver Nuggets: F Kevin Knox (Kentucky)
  15. Washington Wizards: C Mitchell Robinson (USA)
  16. Phoenix Suns: SG Donte DiVencenzo (Villanova)
  17. Milwaukee Bucks: PF/C Jontay Porter (Missouri)
  18. San Antonio Spurs: G Khyri Thomas (Creighton)
  19. Atlanta Hawks: SG Lonnie Walker (Miami)
  20. Minnesota Timberwolves: G Zhaire Smith (Texas Tech)
  21. Utah Jazz: SF Chandler Hutchinson (Boise State)
  22. Chicago Bulls: PF/C Omari Spellman (Villanova)
  23. Indiana Pacers: F Keita Bates-Diop (Ohio State)
  24. Portland Trailblazers: F Moritz Wagner (Michigan)
  25. Los Angeles Lakers: G Anfernee Simons (IMG Academy)
  26. Philadelphia 76ers: SG Gary Trent Jr. (Duke)
  27. Boston Celtics: G/F Troy Brown (Oregon)
  28. Golden State Warriors: SF Dzanan Musa (Bosnia)
  29. Brooklyn Nets: PG Jalen Brunson (Villanova)
  30. Atlanta Hawks: PG Landry Shamet (Wichita State)

There’s always some major stock changes in draft prospects leading up to the draft. A couple guys that I think will fall 5-10 spots down draft boards over the following weeks are Michael Porter Jr. and Jaren Jackson. A couple names that will be doing the opposite and climbing up draft boards are Wendell Carter, Mikal Bridges, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Donte DiVencenzo, Zhaire Smith, Mo Wagner and Jontay Porter.
