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

  1. Chicago Bulls: Nik Stauskas, SG, Michigan, 6-6, Soph.
    The Wolverine sophomore can absolutely stroke it from deep, but he is also underrated in terms of his bounciness at the rim. Since they dealt Luol Deng, the Bulls could use another wing scorer.


  2. Phoenix Suns: James Young, SG, Kentucky, 6-6, Fr.
    The Suns continue to add more talent on the wing by selecting James Young, who has a smooth stroke from the perimeter.

    Phoenix owns the Wizards' pick from the Joe Johnson trade. Go here to see all of the outstanding 2014 NBA Draft Trades.


  3. Boston Celtics: Adreian Payne, PF, Michigan State, 6-10, Sr.
    With their second first-round pick, the Celtics grab an inside/outside big guy in Adreian Payne, who also is explosive around the rim.

    Boston owns the Hawks' pick (via Brooklyn) from the Paul Pierce/Kevin Garnett trade. Go here to see all of the outstanding 2014 NBA Draft Trades.




  4. Chicago Bulls: Jordan Clarkson, G, Missouri, 6-5, Jr.
    Since the Bulls dealt Marquis Teague, and both Kirk Hinrich and D.J. Augustin are free agents, the team could use some depth at the point guard position. Jordan Clarkson has really opened some eyes after transferring to Missouri from Tulsa and is capable of playing either guard position.

    Chicago owns the Hornets' from the Tyrus Thomas trade. Go here to see all of the outstanding 2014 NBA Draft Trades.


  5. Toronto Raptors: Jerami Grant, SF, Syracuse, 6-7, Soph.
    Jerami Grant is long and extremely athletic at the rim. Since they traded Rudy Gay, the Raptors have a need for depth at small forward.


  6. Memphis Grizzlies: K.J. McDaniels, SF, Clemson, 6-6, Jr.
    Tayshaun Prince is nowhere near what he used to be, and Mike Miller and Quincy Pondexter are both free agents after this season, so the Grizzlies could use some depth on the wing.


  7. Oklahoma City Thunder: Clint Capela, PF, Switzerland, 6-10, 1994
    The Swiss native looks the part, but needs grooming in most area of his game and must add physicality. The Thunder could draft and stash him and hope he becomes a contributor in a year or two.

    Oklahoma City owns the Mavericks' pick (via Houston, via L.A. Lakers) from the James Harden trade. Go here to see all of the outstanding 2014 NBA Draft Trades.




  8. Utah Jazz: Montrezl Harrell, PF, Louisville, 6-8, Soph.
    Though a bit undersized, Montrezl Harrell plays insanely hard and uses his length and athleticism to be a factor inside. The Jazz doesn't really have any options up front outside of Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter, especially with Marvin Williams becoming a free agent.

    Utah owns the Warriors' pick from the Richard Jefferson/Andris Biedrins trade. Go here to see all of the outstanding 2014 NBA Draft Trades.


  9. Charlotte Hornets: Shabazz Napier, PG, Connecticut, 6-1, Sr.
    With Luke Ridnour entering free agency, the Bobcats need a backup to Kemba Walker. Napier used to play alongside Walker at Connecticut and brings experience to the point guard position.

    Charlotte owns the Trail Blazers' pick from the Gerald Wallace trade. Go here to see all of the outstanding 2014 NBA Draft Trades.


  10. Houston Rockets: P.J. Hairston, SG, North Carolina, 6-6, Jr.
    The Rockets need to add some scoring punch off their bench, and P.J. Hairston has solid size and strength to be an NBA off guard. He also displays a pretty stroke from the perimeter. Hairston was dismissed from North Carolina's team this season and has since been playing in the D-League.


  11. Los Angeles Clippers: Willie Cauley-Stein, C, Kentucky, 7-0, Soph.
    Willie Cauley-Stein brings a ton of energy to the floor and is a rim protector who is still very raw offensively. The Clippers don't really have any depth inside behind DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin.




  12. Miami Heat: Aaron Harrison, SG, Kentucky, 6-5, Fr.
    Aaron Harrison is a capable all-around scorer with good size for the next level. Though it has not always shown this season, he has first-round talent and worth the risk this late.


  13. Oklahoma City Thunder: Jordan Adams, SG, UCLA, 6-5, Soph.
    Jordan Adams is a physical off guard and talented all-around scorer. A team like the Thunder is looking for depth here, and Adams might be able to add some scoring punch off the bench.


  14. San Antonio Spurs: Jarnell Stokes, PF, Tennessee, 6-8, Jr.
    Though a bit undersized, Jarnell Stokes is a physical presence down low, and the Spurs could use some depth up front.


  15. Phoenix Suns: Bogdan Bogdanovic, G/F, Serbia, 6-6, 1992
    A versatile threat, the Serbian can play the one, two, or three and does a little bit of everything to help his team. The Suns could draft and stash him with their third first-round pick.

    Phoenix owns the Pacers' pick from the Luis Scola trade. Go here to see all of the outstanding 2014 NBA Draft Trades.
