2017 NBA Draft

Round 1 6.22.17

A Markelle Fultz

Philadelphia 76ers #1

Philly got their man, time to trust in The Process.

A+ Lonzo Ball

Los Angeles Lakers #2

Magic will get Daddy under control, and lead Lonzo.

B+ Jaysun Tatum

Boston Celtics #3

Celtics get a scorer to help IT.

A Josh Jackson

Phoenix Suns #4

Jackson will help add some defense to the suns while keeping up the fast tempo.

B+ De'Aaron Fox

Sacramento Kings #5

Hopefully Fox can help turn around this franchise alongside Buddy Hield.

A+ Jonathon Isaac

Orlando Magic #6

Great upside here, adding to the Orlando's young core.

B Lauri Markkanen

Chicago Bulls #7

Searching for Dirk 2.0 here.

B- Frank Ntilikina

New York Knicks #8

A lengthy guard who is still raw, should get decent playing time behind Rose.

A- Dennis Smith

Dallas Mavericks #9

High risk, high reward. Smith needs to be more consistent to win me over.

B- Zach Collins

Portland Trail Blazers #10

Patience is the key here.

A+ Malik Monk

Charlotte Hornets #11

Arguably the best shooter in the draft, the human microwave.

B+ Luke Kennard

Detroit Pistons #12

A great shooter to help space the floor for Drummond.

C+ Donovan Mitchell

Utah jazz #13

Adding another defensive presence isn't exactly what the Jazz needed.

B- Bam Adebayo

Miami Heat #14

Hassan Whiteside + Bam Adebayo = Block Party.

B+ Justin Jackson

Sacramento Kings #15

Jackson should help bring some consistent offense with his mid-range game.

C Justin Patton

Minnesota Timberwolves #16

T-Wolves rolled the dice on this one, but don't worry. Jimmy Buckets is on his way to town.

B D.J. Wilson

Milwaukee Bucks #17

A nice addition to the young core, will be given the needed time to develop.

B- T.J. Leaf

Indiana Pacers #18

An athletic PF who could help spread the floor.

A+ John Collins

Atlanta Hawks #19

Steal of a pick here, sleeper for sure.

B+ Harry Giles

Sacramento Kings #20

Could be the next KG, could never see the floor. High-risk high-reward here.

B Terrance Ferguson

Oklahoma City Thunder #21

A raw shooter to put next to Westbrook.

B+ Jarrett Allen

Brooklyn Nets #22

Athletic interior defender who needs to develop and offiensive game.

A- O.G. Anunoby

Toronto Raptors #23

Great pick, think Draymond Green here.

B Tyler Lydon

Denver Nuggets #24

Will help give Jokic room to function in the paint.

C- Anzejs Pasecniks

Philadelphia 76ers #25

Only time will tell.

B- Caleb Swanigan

Portland Trailblazers #26

You know what you're getting here. Think Zach Randolph 2.0.

C Kyle Kuzma

Los Angeles Lakers #27

Not too hot on this pick, although the ball will be flying around with Kuzma and Ball on the court.

B+ Tony Bradley

Utah Jazz #28

Great size, will fill the hole behind Gobert. Bradley lives on the glass.

A- Derrick White

San Antonio Spurs #29

The Spurs draft the feel-good story, surprised?

B+ Josh Hart

Los Angeles Lakers #30

Not great at any one thing, but good at almost everything.
