2018 NBA Mock Draft: Round 1

  1. Atlanta Hawks: Wenyen Gabriel, F, Kentucky, 6-9, Soph.
    Gabriel is long, athletic, and versatile; making his biggest impact on the glass and defensive end.

  2. Brooklyn Nets: Mortiz Wagner, C, Michigan, 6-11, Sr.
    The German is an inside/outside threat who can stretch defenses with his perimeter shooting.

  3. Indiana Pacers: Jalen Adams, PG, Connecticut, 6-2, Jr.
    As a lead guard, Adams can score or distribute the rock.

  4. Sacramento Kings: Allonzo Trier, SG, Arizona, 6-5, Jr.
    A pure scorer, Trier is a solid outside shooter who is also capable of getting to the rim.

  5. New York Knicks: Mikal Bridges, SF, Villanova, 6-7, Jr.
    Bridges brings tremendous versatility on the defensive end and should see more of a scorer's role for the Wildcats this season.

  6. Orlando Magic: D.J. Hogg, SF, Texas A&M, 6-9, Jr.
    With good size for the next level, Hogg contributes in a variety of ways on the floor.

  7. Orlando Magic: DeVonte' Graham, PG, Kansas, 6-2, Sr.
    Graham is capable of running the point or playing off the ball, but lacks the ideal athleticism for an NBA point guard.

  8. Phoenix Suns: Josh Langford, SG, Michigan State, 6-5, Soph.
    Langford didn't make the impact many expected him to as a freshman, but is a solid shooter who should see more touches this year.

  9. Philadelphia 76ers: Grayson Allen, SG, Duke, 6-4, Sr.
    Allen may have a knock on him because he lets his competitiveness get to him a bit, but he is still a talented al- around weapon and could potentially play either guard spot.

  10. New Orleans Pelicans: Tyler Davis, C, Texas A&M, 6-10, Jr.
    At 6-10, 265 pounds, the Aggie junior knows how to throw his big body around down low.

  11. Dallas Mavericks: Felipe dos Anjos, C, Brazil, 7-2, 1998.
    His size is attractive, but the Brazilian is a project big man.

  12. Chicago Bulls: Angel Delgado, PF, Seton Hall, 6-10, Jr.
    A double-double machine, Delgado could find his niche in the NBA as an energy four man.

  13. Detroit Pistons: Malik Newman, SG, Kansas, 6-3, Soph.
    The Mississippi State transfer is an undersized two guard, but knows how to fill it up.

  14. Miami Heat: Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk, SF, Kansas, 6-8, Sr.
    Mykhailiuk's ability to stroke it from deep should find the Ukraine native a spot in the second round.

  15. Utah Jazz: Deng Adel, SF, Louisville, 6-7, Jr.
    Still developing his all-around offensive game, Adel has the length and athleticism coveted at the next level.

  16. Portland Trail Blazers: Terry Larrier, SF, Connecticut, 6-8, Jr.
    Larrier missed this past season with a torn ACL, but is a versatile forward who should make a major impact for the Huskies.

  17. Memphis Grizzlies: Elijah Stewart, SG, USC, 6-5, Sr.
    Due to his sharpshooting from the outside, Stewart could find a home in the NBA.

  18. Charlotte Hornets: Joel Berry, PG, North Carolina, 6-0, Sr.
    A true floor leader, Berry was a huge reason why North Carolina won the National Championship last year.

  19. Denver Nuggets: Obi Enechionyia, PF, Temple, 6-10, Sr.
    Though he has flown under the radar nationally, Enechionyia is an intriguing prospect due to his size and ability to step outside and knock down three-pointers.

  20. Los Angeles Clippers: E.C. Matthews, G, Rhode Island, 6-5, Sr.
    After coming back from a torn ACL last season, Matthews needs to have a big senior season if he is going to get second-round looks.

  21. Milwaukee Bucks: Jonathan Williams, F, Gonzaga, 6-9, Sr.
    The former Mizzori transfer is bouncy at the rim and has a nice mid-range game.

  22. Washington Wizards: Kelan Martin, SF, Butler, 6-7, Sr.
    Due to his physicality, Martin can muscle opponents when attacking the basket, but he has a decent outside shot as well.

  23. Minnesota Timberwolves: Jo Lual-Acuil, C, Baylor, 7-0, Sr.
    The former JUCO transfer makes his biggest impact as a rim protector.

  24. Toronto Raptors: Matthew Fisher-Davis, SG, Vanderbilt, 6-5, Sr.
    Fischer-Davis is a sniper from the outside, but sometimes is too one-dimensional of a player.

  25. Oklahoma City Thunder: Jordan McLaughlin, PG, USC, 6-1, Sr.
    The Trojan senior can serve as a facilitator, yet he also knows how to score the rock.

  26. Cleveland Cavaliers: Yante Maten, PF, Georgia, 6-8, Sr.
    Manten's mid-range game allows him to overcome the fact that he is an undersized four man.

  27. Boston Celtics: Jeffrey Carroll, SG, Oklahoma State, 6-6, Sr.
    Carroll's ability to stroke it from the outside will get him second-round looks.

  28. Houston Rockets: Kevin Hervey, PF, UT-Arlington, 6-9, Sr.
    Hervey is an inside/outside threat.

  29. San Antonio Spurs: Kyle Washington, PF, Cincinnati, 6-9, Sr.
    The Bearcat senior has a good combination of size and athleticism but can also step out and knock down jumpers.

  30. Golden State Warriors: B.J. Johnson, SF, LaSalle, 6-7, Sr.
    The lefty is a smooth scorer with the ability to shoot it from deep.
