Predict as many picks as you want, you can do a list of the whole first round..
I enjoy taking team needs/workouts into account and cooking up a little mock.

1. Simmons - PHI
2. Ingram - LAL
3. Brown - Celtics
4. Chriss - Suns
5. Hield - Wolves
6. Dunn - Pelicans
7. Bender - Denver
8. Murray - Kings
9. Davis or Poeltl - Toronto
10. Ellenson or Thon - Bucks

1. PHI - Simmons
2. LAL - Ingram
3. BOS - Dunn (It seems that the fans want Bender, but are expecting Dunn)
4. PHX - Chriss or Bender (They're looking for a big man)
5. MIN - Bender (They want Dunn but he won't be available, Bender will not slip past 5. If PHX takes Bender, then Minny will pick Murray)
6. NOP - Hield
7. DEN - Murray (if Murray is taken by Minny, then DEN will select Sabonis since they love Euros)
8. Sac - Brown (I really like him, but I don't see any team other than Boston taking him)

ladies and gents...with the imminence of draft day, i present to you my first and final mock:

1. Philly – Markelle Fultz – all but a certainty now
2. Lakers – Lonzo Ball – they need 3pt shooting in a bad way and his uptempo style of play fits their off. Strategy. And now that PG13 wants to come to the lakers it makes even less sense to draft a forward (e.g., Josh Jackson)
3. Celtics – Josh Jackson – seems like this is who they’ve always wanted
4. Suns - Jayson Tatum – It’s b/w fox and tatum for me with this pick but ultimately went with tatum because the suns already have depth at PG and I believe tatum is the better prospect
5. Kings – De’Aaron Fox – They’re saying it’s who the Kings wanted all along so…
6. Magic – Frank Ntilikina – their draft history would seem to indicate to me that they’re looking for athleticism, versatility, and intangibles which tells us they’re going with Isaac right? Wrong. They’ve shown a tendency at times to reach with their draft picks and their front office is a mess (ref. to Magic GM accidently tweeting a pic of their FA plans)
7. T’wolves – Jonathan Isaac – Twolves are happy he dropped because Isaac seems to be an ideal fit for them. Athletic PF who can stretch the floor, giving KAT more room to operate
8. Knicks – Dennis Smith – The knicks need an hot-injection of excitement and hope in the worst way possible and Smith seems to check those boxes with his star potential (nbadraft comp: Baron Davis/Steve Francis) and elite athleticism. Oh yeah, they also need a PG after Rose leaves for who knows where.
9. Mavs – Malik Monk – This team also needed a PG and were hoping Smith/Ntilikina would have fallen to them but take Monk as he is the best prospect left on the board. Monk has PG size so they may try to play him there but he’s SG so who knows if it works.
10. Kings – Lauri Markkanen – Knock-down shooting 4 who’s been compared to Nowitzki (yeah right)
11. Hornets – Zach Collins – they REALLY need some big bodies who can defend as their current starters are Marvin Williams and Cody Zeller.
12. Pistons (traded to Lakers for Jordan Clarkson, #28, and future second round pick) – Luke Kennard – as mentioned previously about the Lakers, they need 3pt shooting if they are to even come anywhere close to emulating the Warriors offense. As solid as he has been as a 6th man, Lakers brass doesn’t see the fit and potential for Clarkson to become a starter and so becomes the odd man out. Pistons have been rumored to be shopping this pick for veteran scoring/help.
13. Nugs – Harry Giles – WOW, this early for Giles? He’s got allstar athleticism and potential and with the nuggets in a rebuild, they can afford to wait on him.
14. Heat – Donovan Mitchell – I don’t know who this is. I just put him here because the Heat need shooting and with Waiters looking to cash in on FA, he may be on his way out.

Feel free to disagree, comment, question. Thanks.
