Round 1

1. Celtics: Markelle Fultz, Point Guard, Washington

Fultz checks every box as an NBA prospect. He's a good athlete with size and length. He can play and defend multiple positions. He can shoot the 3 and handle the ball. He has character, a high basketball IQ and no major flaws in his game.

2. Lakers: Lonzo Ball, Point Guard, UCLA

Ball is the best passer in the draft. He's ultracompetitive and he plays with a special swagger. While his jump shot is unorthodox, it goes in at a high rate. In the right system, he has a chance to be a superstar.
Lonzo Ball - PG - UCLA

3. 76ers: De'Aaron Fox, Point Guard, Kentucky

Fox is a blur with the ball, both in the open court and in half-court sets. His quickness and ballhandling ability are elite, and he showed terrific playmaking instincts at Kentucky --

4. Suns: Josh Jackson, Small Forward, Kansas

Jackson is the best wing in the draft. Long and athletic, he can play three positions. His inconsistent though improving jump shot is a concern. But overall his game and his motor are special.but his shaky shooting is a big issue.

5. Kings: Jonathan Isaac, Small Forward, Florida State

Isaac has a rare combination of size, length and shooting ability. He has the potential to play multiple positions on both ends of the floor. Strength is his biggest issue, but he put up solid numbers for the Seminoles.

6. Magic: Jayson Tatum, Small Forward, Duke

Tatum has the tools to be a dominant NBA 3. He's athletic, strong and a skilled scorer who's devastating in the post. But his pedestrian 3-point shooting is a red flag for scouts.

7. Timberwolves: Malik Monk, Guard, Kentucky

Monk is the best pure scorer in the draft. His deep range and explosive athleticism are a rare combination. When his shot is falling, he can be unstoppable. But he's just an average rebounder, defender and passer.

8. Knicks: Frank Ntilikina, Point Guard, France

Ntilikina is a big, aggressive point guard and an improving shooter with a high basketball IQ. If he were a bit more explosive athletically, he might be a top-five pick.

9. Mavericks: Lauri Markkanen, Power Forward, Arizona

Markkanen looks like an ideal stretch-4. Athletic, 7-foot jump shooters don't come along every day. He's just an average rebounder and defender, however.

10. Kings: Dennis Smith, Point Guard, N.C. State

Smith has elite athleticism and ability to get his shot from anywhere, and he's a good passer and devastating finisher at the rim. But he doesn't always compete with a high level of intensity.

13. Nuggets: Zach Collins, Center, Gonzaga

Zach Collins - C - Gonzaga
Collins made the most of his minutes at Gonzaga. He's a versatile athlete, he can play on the perimeter and he finishes above the rim. He needs to add strength, but teams love his upside.

14. Heat: T.J. Leaf, Power Forward, UCLA

T.J. Leaf - PF - UCLA

15. Blazers: Justin Jackson, Small Forward, North Carolina

Justin Jackson - SF - UNC

16. Bulls: Harry Giles, Power Forward, Duke

Giles' game has very few holes, but he has struggled to come back from a series of knee injuries. He still has the talent and the motor that intrigued coming into the season, but his explosiveness and feel haven't completely returned yet.
