The majority of mocks I've read have a draft order something like: 1. Towns, 2. Okafor, 3. Russell, 4. Mudiay, 5. Winslow, 6. Porzingis, 7. Hezonja, 8. Johnson That leaves the following players who tend to come next in many different orders: - PG: Cameron Payne - SG: Devin Booker - SF: Sam Dekker, Kelly Oubre - PF: Trey Lyles, Bobby Portis - C: Willie Cauley-Stein, Myles Turner, Frank Kaminsky
I'd love to see us draft WCS. He's very athletic, and a decent shot blocker and rebounder. At worst he should be able to develop into a Dalembert type player, if not reach an even higher ceiling than that. He may always be more limited offensively, but he'd give us an excellent center prospect to build around, and we could even move Al Jefferson to PF. The alternative would be to add Kelly Oubre, Sam Dekker, or Devin Booker to give us more shooting. Someone like Booker could develop into an excellent starter at SG, letting us move Henderson to sixth man, and trade Stephenson. Though Oubre is an intriguing player, very athletic, decent shooter, and has the talent to be a starter.
I'd be happy pick from WCS, Booker, Oubre or Dekker.
