2021 NBA Mock Draft 1.0

The much-anticipated debuts of top NBA prospects Jalen Green and Jonathan Kuminga took place Wednesday morning when the G League Ignite kicked off their 15-game season against Jeremy Lin, Nico Mannion and the Santa Cruz Warriors. In the spirit of their debuts, Jackson and I mock-drafted the 2021 lottery on the latest episode of the ATM: At The Minute Podcast. This is what we came up with:

  • Draft order was based on the NBA standings as of 2/10/2021.
  • Jackson made the odd-numbered picks.
  • I made the even-numbered picks.
  1. Minnesota Timberwolves – Cade Cunningham | G/F | Oklahoma State
  2. Detroit Pistons – Jalen Suggs | Guard | Gonzaga
  3. Washington Wizards – Jonathan Kuminga | Wing | G League Ignite
  4. Orlando Magic – Evan Mobley | Big | USC
  5. Chicago Bulls – Jalen Johnson | Forward | Duke
  6. Cleveland Cavaliers – Jalen Green | Guard | G League Ignite
  7. OKC Thunder (via Miami) – Greg Brown | Forward | Texas
  8. New York Knicks – James Bouknight | Guard | UConn
  9. OKC Thunder – BJ Boston | Wing | Kentucky
  10. New York Knicks (via Dallas) – Corey Kispert | Wing | Gonzaga
