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: Tyshawn Taylor, PG, Kansas, 6-4, Sr.
    Tyshawn Taylor could fill a void at point guard behind Kyrie Irving, but also play with him at times, too.

  4. Cleveland Cavaliers: Drew Gordon, PF, New Mexico, 6-9, Sr.
    The Cavaliers need to add some depth to their frontcourt.

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

  6. Sacramento Kings: Miles Plumlee, C, Duke, 7-0, Sr.
    It pains me to put Miles Plumlee in my mock draft since he was pretty worthless during his time at Duke. However, NBA teams love size and athleticism which Plumlee possesses.

  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 created 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: Kostas Papanikolaou, SF, Greece, 6-8, 1990
    Since their core is under contract for next season, the Nuggets could go the foreign route again.

  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. Ergo, the team takes the best available player for one of those spots.

  24. Philadelphia 76ers: Tornike Shengelia, SF, Georgia, 6-9, 1991
    The 76ers have three picks in the draft, so going the foreign route makes sense.

  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 Minnesota's backup center.

  29. San Antonio Spurs: Marcus Denmon, SG, Missouri, 6-3, Sr.
    The Spurs always seem to find second-round steals; 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.

Imagine how good the trail blazers would be! If it wasn't for injuries ending careers.
SG: Brandon Roy (Injured; retired)
SF: Nicolas Batum
PF: LaMarcus Aldridge
C: Greg Oden (bad knees; couldn't stay healthy)
I'm not a trail blazers fan but all are young and I think would really compete for a championship

Why would the Celtics take a PG when they are the worst (historically bad) rebounding team in the league?

Cavs won't draft Noel cuz Thompson can block he had three against the bucks they won't draft PG they got Irving he's an all star

And clippers won't draft PF they have Blake griffin

In my mind 2nd round should be used for backups
1st round should be used for potential starter

Zeller is a sold post player but no more than a roll player. Shabazz is the premier player in this draft. Noel very solid but lacks legitimate scoring prowess. If the cavs have a pick between 4-8 the SF they should get Glenn Robinson 3. And d. Thomas in the 20s. Build depth at a position of severe weakness and slide Gee to the 2 spot. And grab a project big later to develop.
Where's Sean Kilpatrick? 01-25-2013 03:07 am xxx.xxx.xxx.197 (total posts: 2)

Wow one of the top scoring guards in the country goes undrafted huh?
Cavs take another PG? 01-25-2013 03:05 am xxx.xxx.xxx.197 (total posts: 2)

The Cavs took Kyrie one year, Waiters the next, and just acquired Wane Ellington and Josh Selby in a trade. Is another guard really what they need to glut up the position even more? Perhaps they take that wing that you claimed was not available at the top of the draft later in the first and keep DeShaun Thomas home in Ohio. He could also help with their outside shooting. A young front-court of Zeller, Thompson and Noel, paired with a young backcourt of Irving, Waiters and Selby sounds a lot better matched with a scoring wing like Thomas.
