2018 NBA Mock Draft: Round 1 - Picks 1-15
2018 NBA Mock Draft: Round 2

  1. Phoenix Suns: Nick Richards, C, Kentucky, 6-11, Fr.
    Richards is a back-to-the-basket big man who knows how to use his size and strength to his advantage.

  2. Memphis Grizzlies: Brandon McCoy, C, UNLV, 6-11, Fr.
    A physical and athletic presence in the paint, McCoy is a factor inside on both ends of the floor.

  3. Charlotte Hornets: Isaac Bonga, G/F, Germany, 6-9, 1999.
    With tremendous versatility and athleticism, Bonga can run the point or play on the wing, using his size to get to the rim.

  4. Denver Nuggets: Gary Trent Jr., SG, Duke, 6-5, Fr.
    The future Blue Devil is a pure scorer who can stroke it from the outside as well as create his own shots.

  5. Los Angeles Clippers: Bruce Brown, SG, Miami FL, 6-5, Soph.
    Brown is a gifted scorer especially in isolation situations and can play either guard spot.

  6. Milwaukee Bucks: Chimezie Metu, PF, USC, 6-9, Jr.
    Long and athletic, Metu attacks the glass and also has a nice back-to-the-basket game.

  7. Washington Wizards: Andrew Jones, G, Texas, 6-4, Soph.
    Jones is a combo guard with great quickness and athleticism.

  8. Atlanta Hawks: Marques Bolden, C, Duke, 6-11, Soph.
    Bolden is a prototypical big man who makes his presence felt on the defensive end and boards. His freshman season was derailed with injury issues.

  9. Brooklyn Nets: Bennie Boatwright, PF, USC, 6-10, Fr.
    A face-up four who can stretch defenses with his outside shooting, Boatwright has great size for the next level.

  10. Minnesota Timberwolves: Rodions Kurcus, SF, Spain, 6-8, 1998
    Kurcus is a versatile forward capable of shooting it from deep.

  11. Cleveland Cavailers: Omer Yurtseven, PF/C, N.C. State, 7-0, Soph.
    For a young 7-footer, the Uzbekistan native has great mobility and feel for the game. He still needs to become more aggressive and physical inside.

  12. Boston Celtics: Tyus Battle, SG, Syracuse, 6-5, Soph.
    Battle is a solid all-around scorer with good size for an NBA two guard.

  13. Los Angeles Lakers: Aaron Holiday, PG, UCLA, 6-1, Jr.
    Quite possibly the best sixth man in the country this past season, Holiday is a quick and athletic guard who can shoot it from deep too.

  14. San Antonio Spurs: Taurean Thompson, PF, Syracuse, 6-10, Soph.
    Thompson possesses the ideal physical attributes and athleticism for the next level but needs to fine tune his all-around offensive game.

  15. Golden State Warriors: Rawle Alkins, SG, Arizona, 6-5, Soph.
    A physical off-guard, Alkins biggest attributes are his strength and athleticism, which allow him to cause havoc at the rim.
