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.

And another thing when we shotoing free throws it should be the analog stick and when it's time too jump for the ball we should have to time it we can either push triangle or the analog stick I'm not trying to give 2k praise or nun but I love the free throw shotoing and jump ball when you have to time the free throw shot to get a perfect release and when you have to time the jump ball we don't like it at all when you have too push triangle when you see it in nba live 10 or when you have to time it right in get on the blue thing for free throws in nba 13 it should be far far away from those areas Sincerely Reggie Macon

By Phonebreaker May 16, 2013 - 4:56 amUsually in any game that counts the best 5 are on the court. Preseason is grelifiod practice and used primarily to get the fringe players and youngsters some reps to see who makes the back-up and bench roles. You do not want to hurt your key guys in games that don't count (see NFL). A lot of times if a key player has even a minor playable injury relatively close to the post season they'll hold them out until the playoffs begin to maximize their playoff chances.

John Wall'un en bfcyfck talihsizliği bana kalırsa takım makım olyaman Wizards'ta oynaması.Wizards'ı izlemememin tek sebebde Wall ve Arenas merakımdan.Wall bu takımda zaman zaman lider gibi davranmak zorunda kalabiliyor.bu mecburiyette bu performansı sergileyip takım lideri olmak hie7 kolay iş değil.Hızlı , e7evik , delici , orta mesafe şutu olan bi oyuncu ama tek eksik f6zelliği fce7lfcklerine fazla gfcvenilmemesi ama asist gf6rfcşfc muazzam.Wall şuan hie7 gfcvenmediği 3lfcklerini mfcthiş bir silaha df6nfcştfcrfcrse 15 yıl fanatiği oluruz ki buna inanıyorum boş koridoru gf6rfcp ie7eriye dalmasına ve e7abuk dfcşfcnmesini e7ok seviyorum bide iyi şutf6rler olsa Isolation sisteminden iyi ekmek alabilseler ama şanssızlık işte Wizards arı bi dert Saunders ayrı bi dert..Ama hem pozisyonu bakımından hemde oyun bakımından şuan Griffin'le sidik yarıştıracağını inanamıyorum ve onu bu karşılaşmadan men ediyorum gelelim Griffin'e.Penetre f6zelliği var. Asist f6zelliği var. Gfce7lfc bitirişleri var. Hani hızlı hfccuma e7ıkarken guard pozisyonu 3lfckle bitirmek ister ya; işte o topun kae7ma ihtimalinde sezgisi kuvvetli Griffin var. Ne ararsan var adamda 4 numramı Guard mı anlayamazsınız .Amar'e nin sakat olmamış hali vari oyunu var yada daha iyi neyse susutum.Griffin diyorum.. +325Was this answer helpful?

Jordan definitely talks about how excpteed everyone on the team as well as those at Nike to work as hard as he did. When they didn't he wasn't polite about it. He definitely goes into a few interactions he had with Horace Grant and verifies that they did not get along. He talks about how he was also very tight with money and that this regularly upset people around him. I get the impression that he is a nice guy to those that he respects. Those that he does not, don't expect much from him.

The percentage that the owerns get doesn't just go into their pocket they have to pay all of the team staff, that includes coaches, physios, security ect , as well as travel costs the cost of maintaining running and part of the cost of building the arenas. At the end of the day some of the smaller markets lose money and can't compete.not to mention if these guys aren't happy you can always find more players but it's much harder to replace or find owerns willing to opperate at a loss

I love ignorant pelpoe. I bet you think we live in teepees and ride horses to work? don't you? No need to feel sorry for us. We can afford vacations to do all those things because we still have jobs and inexpensive living.

Kareem was wayyyyyy past his prime, scott and coepor benefitted from magic's passing ability, .sam perkins really? and ac green wasnt a game changer really. magic made his teammates better, the bulls had to go acquire talent for jordan. Jordan also had the best SF of all time his side
