2011 NBA Mock Draft: Round 1
2011 NBA Mock Draft - Walt's
2011 NBA Draft Prospect Rankings: C | PF | SF | SG | PG
2012 NBA Mock Draft
Updated: June 23, 2011, 7:25 p.m.
  1. Miami Heat: Josh Selby, G, Kansas, 6-3, Fr.
    Since the point guard position remains an Achilles' heel for the Heat, expect them to snag one here. Miami would go with talent over experience here and grab Josh Selby over a player like Shelvin Mack.

  2. Cleveland Cavaliers: Tyler Honeycutt, SF, UCLA, 6-8, Soph.
    The Cavs need to add talent to the wing and Tyler Honeycutt would be a great value here.

  3. Detroit Pistons: Daruis Morris, PG, Michigan, 6-5, So.
    Rodney Stuckey is a restricted free agent and probably not the long-term solution at the point, so Darius Morris would provide some depth.

  4. Washington Wizards: Norris Cole, PG, Cleveland State, 6-2, Sr.
    The Wizards don�t have a backup for John Wall, and Norris Cole would be a solid value here.

  5. Sacramento Kings: Jon Leuer, PF, Wisconsin, 6-10, Sr.
    Since I don't have the Kings drafting a big with their first-round pick, they look for depth down low since Samuel Dalembert is a free agent.

  6. New Jersey Nets: Justin Harper, PF, Richmond, 6-9, Sr.
    Since I have the Nets grabbing a guard at No. 27, they look for power forward depth here.

  7. Los Angeles Clippers: Jeremy Tyler, F/C, USA, 6-11, 1992.
    The Clippers do not have a true backup for Blake Griffin and could use bodies inside in case DeAndre Jordan leaves via free agency.

  8. Houston Rockets: Shelvin Mack, G, Butler, 6-3, Jr.
    The Rockets grab Shelvin Mack in case they lose restricted free agent Goran Dragic in the offseason.

  9. Charlotte Bobcats: Charles Jenkins, G, Hofstra, 6-3, Sr.
    In trading Stephen Jackson, Bobcats could use another scoring off-guard.

  10. Milwaukee Bucks: Malcolm Lee, G, UCLA, 6-5, Jr.
    Scott Skiles loves defense and Malcolm Lee is one of the top perimeter defenders in the 2011 NBA Draft.

  11. Los Angeles Lakers: Bojan Bogdanovic, G/F, Croatia, 6-7, 1989
    Since they have four second-round picks, the Lakers can take a foreign talent like Bojan Bogdanovic.

  12. Indiana Pacers: Andrew Goudelock, PG, Charleston, 6-3, Sr.
    T.J. Ford is a free agent so the Pacers could look to add a backup to Darren Collison. Andrew Goudelock�s ability to shoot the ball should find him a spot on a roster.

  13. Chicago Bulls: Trey Thompkins, PF, Georgia, 6-10, Jr.
    Trey Thompkins is a great value this late. He could provide the Bulls with even more frontcourt depth.

  14. Golden State Warriors: Chandler Parsons, SF, Florida, 6-10, Sr.
    Chandler Parsons possesses great skill and versatility for his size, which should land him a spot on a roster.

  15. New Orleans Hornets: Jordan Williams, PF/C, Maryland, 6-10, Soph.
    With David West doubtful for the start of the season as he rehabs his torn ACL, the Hornets would be wise to add a power forward.

  16. Los Angeles Lakers: E'Twaun Moore, SG, Purdue, 6-4, Sr.
    The Lakers should add depth behind Kobe at the two which could especially be needed if Shannon Brown leaves via free agency.

  17. Los Angeles Clippers: Keith Benson, C, Oakland, 6-11, Sr.
    The Clippers could use a big man since Chris Kaman might be traded and DeAndre Jordan is a restricted free agent.

  18. Atlanta Hawks: Travis Leslie, SG, Georgia, 6-4, Jr.
    With Jamal Crawford a free agent, the Hawks could use some depth on the wing.

  19. Memphis Grizzlies: Greg Smith, F/C, Fresno State, 6-9, So.
    With Marc Gasol a restricted free agent, the Grizzlies could use another body inside.

  20. Phiadelphia 76ers: David Lighty, G/F, Ohio State, 6-6, Sr.
    David Lighty would give the 76ers a versatile wing player who can defend in case Andre Iguodala is traded.'

  21. Portland Blazers: Diante Garrett, PG, Iowa State, 6-4, Sr.
    If the Blazers do not grab a point guard in the first round, they should look to do so here. Diante Garrett has emerged as a legit second-round prospect due to his performance in recent workouts.

  22. Detroit Pistons: Jereme Richmond, SF, Illinois, 6-7, Fr.
    The Pistons can afford to roll the dice with their third pick of the 2011 NBA Draft. Jereme Richmond is incredibly athletic but still very raw.

  23. Orlando Magic: Willie Reed, PF, St. Louis, 6-9, Jr.
    Willie Reed gives Orlando another option at power forward besides Brandon Bass and Ryan Anderson.

  24. Cleveland Cavaliers: Scotty Hopson, SG, Tennessee, 6-7, Jr.
    The Cavs grab more depth on the wing with their fourth pick of the 2011 NBA Draft.

  25. Boston Celtics: DeAndre Liggins, G/F, Kentucky, 6-6, Jr.
    The Celtics could use some depth on the wing behind Paul Pierce and Ray Allen.

  26. Los Angeles Lakers: Ben Hansbrough, G, Notre Dame, 6-3, Sr.
    Derek Fisher is not getting any younger and Ben Hansbrough could stick on a roster due to his hard work and three-point range.

  27. Dallas Mavericks: Michael Dunigan, C, USA, 6-10, 1989
    The Mavs could use some insurance in the frontcourt in case Tyson Chandler leaves via free agency.

  28. Los Angeles Lakers: Rick Jackson, PF, Syracuse, 6-9, Sr.
    With Joe Smith and Theo Ratliff free agents, and Andrew Bynum always banged up, Rick Jackson gives the Lakers a frontcourt option who can bang down low.

  29. San Antonio Spurs: Malcolm Thomas, F, San Diego State, 6-8, Sr.
    Malcolm Thomas is worth a late draft flier to possibly serve as a backup to Richard Jefferson.

  30. Sacramento Kings: Cory Joseph, PG, Texas, 6-3, Fr.
    I know I have the Kings taking Kemba Walker in the first round, but Cory Joseph is worth the risk with the final pick of the 2011 NBA Draft.

Decent first part... Bismack will definitely go 8.. He is scheduled to play against Marcus Morris and Chris Singleton. He wins... Knight is the better prospect, and will go 5. I see Vesely go 6, then Kemba 7 and Biyombo 8. I think that Marcus and Markieff Morris will go 9 and 19 for Charlotte's public future.. You are dead on with 10 and 11 and Utah will take Kahwi at 12 and Phoenix goes jimmer at 13 and Nikola Vucevic at 14 (houston needs a true center, not a 6'9 freak from Congo who was already taken)

Jimmermania will stay in Utah. It just makes too much sense and considering the bust rate of first rounders, even if he turns out to be no better than J.J. Redick, he'd still be worth a lottery pick. More often than not, the majority of lottery picks fail to average double digit PPG so a lot of teams wouldn't mind picking up a role playing shooting specialist.

I really think the pistons should trade up for the number 2 pick. Then they could take Derrick Williams which is exactly what they need. A lot of people in Detroit want us to go back to that hardnose blue collar type team but I think that Tom Gores will want them to be more of an exciting team. I personally believe that anyone who watches the Pistons would agree that they need an exciting player or 2. Maybe they could find a way to get the second pick and keep their 8th pick as well. Then maybe we could try for Kemba or Knight with the 8th pick. That would be an exciting team to watch, unlike the current one that doesn't even have a player that is close to a star, let alone a superstar.

Listen its almost a done deal as far as cleveland taking Kyrie my boy from the best collage ever duke anyway minnesota is going to trsde back to 4 cleveland gets two and detroit gets a future pick with them sending rip possibly ben in a package deal so the reason is clearly williams is the best available but minnesota is swamped at that position and he is so close in comparrison to beasley its scary so they will drop to four to get kanter and as far as rubio goes he allready said he is coming next season so all im saying is give this team 2 years and they are the next young hot shot team

I really do think that the T-Wolves will end up trading the 2nd overrall pick. Irving almost certainley will be taken first and it just doesnt make sense for the T-Wolves to take Williams. I think Cleveland is a candidate to move up from their 4th pick to 2nd and take Williams but I could also see the Jazz moving up one pick to take Williams and then that would really be a log jam up there as Walt said. I think the Pistons are also a candidate to trade up and select Williams and have him pair with Austin Daye, Jonas Jerebko and Greg Monroe but would most likely have to trade Ben Wallace in that deal.

If the choice is Vesely and Leonard, they'll go with whomever they feel is the best pure 3.

They've already got Blatche, Yi, Booker, Seraphin and Lewis who can play at the 4 while there is no true 3 on the roster.

I was skeptical of the MIN/Selby pick upon first read, but with Rubio now saying that he's in talks with Barcelona, it may be in the TWolves best interest to just move forward and stop letting Rubio hold the PG position hostage. If Irving somehow gets past the Cavs at #1 (doubtful), MIN should jump all over him. I think your scenario is more realistic, and Selby could be a good fit. Good call.
