2012 NBA Mock Draft: Round 1

2011 NBA Mock Draft
2010 NBA Mock Draft
2009 NBA Mock Re-Draft
Updated: June 28, 2012.
Team needs and outstanding trades HAVE been taken into account with this mock draft.

  1. Charlotte Bobcats: Festus Ezeli, C, Vanderbilt, 6-11, Sr.
    The Bobcats add some more size inside; small forward could also be an option.

  2. Washington Wizards: Evan Fournier, SG, France, 6-6, 1992
    Drafting a foreign talent like Evan Fournier and stashing him overseas for a year or two would make sense.

  3. Cleveland Cavaliers: Will Barton, SG, Memphis, 6-6, So.
    The Cavaliers should do backflips if they land Will Barton.

  4. Cleveland Cavaliers: Kostas Papanikolaou, SF, Greece, 6-8, 1990
    Papanikolaou's stock has been on the rise, and the Cavaliers could draft and stash him.

  5. Golden State Warriors: Scott Machado, PG, Iona, 6-2, Sr.
    The Warriors could use a true distributor behind Stephen Curry.

  6. Sacramento Kings: Drew Gordon, PF, New Mexico, 6-9, Sr.
    Kings need some depth up front.

  7. Toronto Raptors: Darius Miller, G/F, Kentucky, 6-7, Sr.
    Darius Miller is the ultimate glue guy and could find a role off the bench for the Raptors.

  8. Denver Nuggets: Doron Lamb, SG, Kentucky, 6-5, So.
    Doron Lamb is just too good of a value for the Nuggets to pass up here, and I can't believe Lamb is going to fall this low.

  9. Detroit Pistons: Darius Johnson-Odom, SG, Marquette, 6-3, Sr.
    The Pistons have a need for a scoring shooting guard since trading Ben Gordon.





  10. Portland Blazers: Jae Crowder, SF, Marquette, 6-6, Sr.
    The Blazers are looking for depth at small forward since trading Gerald Wallace.

  11. Portland Blazers: Henry Sims, C, Georgetown, 7-0, Sr.
    The Blazers don't have a true center under contract for next season.

  12. Milwaukee Bucks: Kim English, G/F, Missouri, 6-6, Sr.
    Kim English is a versatile talent, and the Bucks need some depth on the wing.

  13. Atlanta Hawks: Jared Cunningham, SG, Oregon State, 6-5, Jr.
    Again, the Hawks need depth all over since they only have six players under contract for next season.

  14. Detroit Pistons: Tomas Sotaransky, SG, Czech Republic, 6-8, 1991
    The Pistons go the foreign route with their third pick of the draft.

  15. Philadelphia 76ers: Kevin Murphy, SG, Tennessee Tech, 6-6, Sr.
    The Sixers grab a shooter since Jodie Meeks is a restricted free agent.

  16. New Orleans Hornets: Kris Joseph, SF, Syracuse, 6-7, Sr.
    Trading Trevor Ariza creates a need for depth at small forward.

  17. Utah Jazz: Orlando Johnson, SG, UC-Santa Barbara, 6-5, Sr.
    The Jazz should be looking for depth on the wing since C.J. Miles and Josh Howard are free agents.

  18. New York Knicks: Kevin Jones, PF, West Virginia, 6-7, Sr.
    The Knicks need depth all over and take the best player available.

  19. Orlando Magic: Khris Middleton, SF, Texas A&M, 6-8, Jr.
    Orlando likely takes the best player on the board at this point.



  20. Denver Nuggets: Tornike Shengelia, SF, Georgia, 6-9, 1991
    Denver should use one of its second-rounders on a foreign guy.

  21. Boston Celtics: William Buford, SG, Ohio State, 6-5, Sr.
    The Celtics should look to add a shooter with one of their three picks given that Ray Allen is a free agent.

  22. Golden State Warriors: Furkan Aldemir, PF, Turkey, 6-9, 1991
    The Warriors go the foreign route with their fourth pick of the draft.

  23. Los Angeles Clippers: Bernard James, C, Florida State, 6-10, Sr.
    The Clippers need depth on the wing and in their frontcourt, so the team takes the best available at that spot.

  24. Philadelphia 76ers: Miles Plumlee, C, Duke, 7-0, Sr.
    The Sixers add athleticism up front.

  25. Dallas Mavericks: Hollis Thompson, SF, Georgetown, 6-8, Jr.
    Hollis Thompson is a solid value here for a team looking for depth on the wing.



  26. Toronto Raptors: Leon Radosevic, F/C, Croatia, 6-10, 1991
    The Raptors go the foreign route with their third pick of the draft.

  27. Brooklyn Nets: Mike Scott, F, Virginia, 6-8, Sr.
    The Nets need depth all over especially at forward since Gerald Wallace and Kris Humphries are free agents.

  28. Minnesota Timberwolves: Kyle O'Quinn, C, Norfolk State, 6-10, Sr.
    Darko is not the long-term solution as backup center.

  29. San Antonio Spurs: Marcus Denmon, SG, Missouri, 6-3, Sr.
    The Spurs always seem to find second-round steals and that's exactly what Marcus Denmon could be at this point.

  30. Los Angeles Lakers: Tu Holloway, PG, Xavier, 6-0, Sr.
    The Lakers continue to look for an answer at point guard, especially since Ramon Sessions will be a free agent.
