2010 NBA Mock Draft
2009 NBA Mock Re-Draft
Updated: June 27, 2013.

Team needs and outstanding trades have been taken into account with this mock draft.

  1. Cleveland Cavaliers: Glen Rice, Jr., G/F, NBADL, 6-6
    Glen Rice Jr. would give the Cavaliers another scorer/shooter on the wing.

    Make sure to check out our Live 2013 NBA Draft Grades, posted minutes after each pick this evening.

  2. Oklahoma City Thunder: Alex Abrines, SG, Spain, 6-5, 1993
    With its third pick of the 2013 NBA Draft, Oklahoma City goes the foreign route with a draft-and-stash prospect.

  3. Cleveland Cavaliers: Isaiah Canaan, PG, Murray State, 6-0, Sr.
    The Cavaliers don't have a true backup to Kyrie Irving, so Isaiah Canaan makes sense here.

  4. Houston Rockets: Archie Goodwin, SG, Kentucky, 6-5, Fr.
    The Rockets don't have much depth at guard behind James Harden and Jeremy Lin, and Archie Goodwin would be a great value this low. Houston GM Daryl Morey loves value.

  5. Philadelphia 76ers: DeShaun Thomas, SF, Ohio State, 6-7, Jr.
    The 76ers need depth on the wing since Nick Young and Dorrell Wright are both free agents.

  6. Sacramento Kings: C.J. Leslie, F, N.C. State, 6-9, Jr.
    C.J. Leslie is a ridiculous athlete who excels above the rim.

  7. Detroit Pistons: Lorenzo Brown, PG, N.C. State, 6-5, Jr.
    Lorenzo Brown would be a great value this low and the Pistons need some depth at guard since Jose Caldron is a free agent.

  8. Washington Wizards: Pierre Jackson, PG, Baylor, 5-10, Sr.
    The Wizards need some depth at guard behind John Wall and Bradley Beal.

  9. Portland Trail Blazers: Jeff Withey, C, Kansas, 7-0, Sr.
    Jeff Withey is a solid shot blocker and Portland needs options up front since J.J. Hickson is a free agent.

  10. Portland Trail Blazers: Grant Jerrett, PF, Arizona, 6-10, Fr.
    A stretch four who is nowhere near ready to contribute right away, Jerrett will spend some time in the D-League. He does have solid potential though.

  11. Memphis Grizzlies: James Southerland, SF, Syracuse, 6-8, Sr.
    With limitless range from the outside, James Southerland could find a home at the next level due to his ability to stretch defenses.

  12. Philadelphia 76ers: Nate Wolters, G, South Dakota State, 6-5, Sr.
    The Sixers have a need for outside shooting and Nate Wolters can light it up from deep.

  13. Milwaukee Bucks: Carrick Felix, SG, Arizona State, 6-6, Sr.
    By addressing their point guard need in the first round, the Bucks should look to add depth at the two.

  14. Dallas Mavericks: Mike Muscala, PF/C, Bucknell, 6-11, Sr.
    The Bison big is an inside/outside threat who adds needed size to the Mavericks.

  15. Portland Trail Blazers: Livio Jean Charles, F, France, 6-9, 1993
    With three second-round picks, the Trail Blazers should take at least one foreign prospect. Jean-Charles caught the attention of NBA scouts at the Nike Hoops Summit.

  16. Utah Jazz: Ryan Kelly, PF, Duke, 7-0, Sr.
    The former Blue Devil is a stretch four who would add more insurance in case the Jazz loses Jefferson or Millsap via free agency.

  17. Atlanta Hawks: Myck Kabongo, PG, Texas, 6-3, Soph.
    The Hawks could be losing Devin Harris in free agency so another point guard would make sense.

  18. Los Angeles Lakers: Kenny Kadji, PF, Miami, 6-10, Sr.
    The Lakers could be looking for size inside with Dwight Howard's possible exit. Kenny Kadji has good size and the ability to stretch defenses with his perimeter shooting.

  19. Chicago Bulls: Alexandre Paranhos, SF, Brazil, 6-9, 1992.
    The Bulls were one of a few teams to work out the Brazilian. They view him as a draft-and-stash prospect.

  20. Atlanta Hawks: Andre Roberson, SF, Colorado, 6-7, Jr.
    A tremendous athlete, Andre Roberson was a prolific rebounder at the college level who is still improving his perimeter shooting.

  21. Orlando Magic: Ray McCallum, PG, Detroit, 6-2, Jr.
    Ray McCallum would be an option to backup Jameer Nelson since Beno Udrih is a free agent.

  22. Minnesota Timberwolves: Solomon Hill, SF, Arizona, 6-7, Jr.
    The Wildcats senior is a versatile wing who can do a little bit of everything on the floor, but doesn't excel in any one particular area.

  23. Indiana Pacers: Erik Murphy, PF, Florida, 6-9, Sr.
    Murphy's inside/outside ability makes him an intriguing prospect despite his lack of NBA athleticism and the Pacers could lose David West via free agency.

  24. Washington Wizards: Marko Todrovic, C, Montenegro, 6-11, 1992
    The Wizards go the foreign route with their third pick of the 2013 NBA Draft.

  25. Memphis Grizzlies: Vander Blue, SG, Marquette, 6-5, Jr.
    Blue is a tremendous athlete and showed strides this past season with his perimeter game as well. The Grizzlies could use depth at the two since Tony Allen is a free agent.

  26. Detroit Pistons: Nemanja Nedovic, G, Serbia, 6-4, 1991
    The Pistons could use their third pick of the 2013 NBA Draft on a "stash overseas" option.

  27. Phoenix Suns: Will Clyburn, G/F, Iowa State, 6-7, Sr.
    The Suns add another wing scorer.

  28. San Antonio Spurs: Bojan Dubljvic, PF, Serbia, 6-10, 1991
    The Spurs have had luck drafting and stashing late picks in the past ... worth a shot again.

  29. Minnesota Timberwolves: Raul Neto, PG, Brazil, 6-2, 1992
    The Timberwolves go the foreign route with their fourth pick of the 2013 NBA Draft.

  30. Memphis Grizzlies: Augusto Lima, F, Brazil, 6-11, 1991
    With their third pick of the second round, the Suns select a stretch four who could develop overseas and possibly contribute down the road.

Le Wizerables need a backup to John Wall? I present to you AJ Price, with a 12.4 PER and 3.5/1 A/TO ratio. He's also a solid shooter.

The Wizzies biggest need is a true C of the 7' variety. They could take an Alex Lin type a little early, let him learn behind Nene and Okafor, and keep guys like Seraphin and Booker at PF instead of having to occasionally play one of them out of position at C.

Need a SF? Martell Webster has been shockingly good, Trevor Ariza is a legit starter coming off the bench right now, and they've got a few others that can slide to SF as depth. Le Wizerables are in position to draft BPA at this point as they're a solid team (when healthy) with a 10 man rotation.

Die hard Kentucky fan here. Archie Goodwin should go undrafted. He is super athletic, but he sucks at basketball. He can't handle the ball, can't shoot, can't drive the ball, and he's one of the most selfish players I've ever seen. He hasn't made a jump shot in 6 games. Alex Poythress is a project and he's also a basketball moron, but he's got more talent than anyone on the team so I could see him going in the lottery. Half the time he's too busy playing with butterflies in the corner to contribute in the game though. Willie Cauley and Nerlens are the only players from this year's team worthy of being drafted solely on potential, and they both are still big projects. I generally agree with you Walt, but Archie and Poythress should not be lottery picks and Archie at five would be one of the worst picks in the history of the draft. A lot of people probably just look at the stats and say, oh this Archie Goodwin must be pretty good, averaging 15 a game. Nope, he stinks. He gets all his points on dunks and layups, most of which are rebounds and garbage points, not because he can get to the hoop so effectively. More than 50 percent of the time when he drives the ball he gets stuffed or turns it over. I hate him more than any Kentucky player in recent memory. Ryan Harrow is a way better player, and no one would ever draft him in the first round.

That Houston pick is going to belong to the Hawks. Its not a lottery pick so it goes the Atlanta.

@sixers fan, the lottery picks are for starters, depending on the class maybe only the top 10. You rarely look see a 20-30 pick start in their first season
