June 1, 2023.

  1. Atlanta Hawks: Jaylin Williams, F, Arkansas
    Actual Pick: A.J. Griffin

    Williams is 6-foot-9 and shot 41 percent from three as a rookie, meaning he will have a long NBA career as a shooting big. He is also a fantastic rebounder and was a huge steal at pick No. 35 in the actual draft.

  2. Houston Rockets: Malaki Branham, G, Ohio State
    Actual Pick: Tari Eason

    Branham was a potential lottery pick last year, and this is about where the Spurs took him.

  3. Chicago Bulls: Andrew Nembhard, PG, Gonzaga
    Actual Pick: Jalen Terry

    Terry is talented, but couldn’t find minutes in a talented Bulls’ rotation and the Bulls needed some point guard help, so Nembhard’s a nice fit. He’s a strong playmaking talent and a solid shooter and scorer.

  4. Minnesota Timberwolves: Ochai Agbaji, SG, Kansas
    Actual Pick: Jake LaRavia

    The former Jayhawk showed a lot of potential as a scorer for the Jazz, although his inefficiency is an issue. His role should grow as the team looks to rebuild and already traded multiple guards.

  5. San Antonio Spurs: Ousmane Dieng, SF, France
    Actual Pick: Malaki Branham

    The lottery pick may be a bit too low, but he had a lesser season than a lot of guys. He also received minimal minutes and played in only half the Thunder’s games, so he’s impossible to judge.

  6. Denver Nuggets: Christian Braun, G/F, Kansas
    Actual Pick: Christian Braun

    No, Braun’s numbers are not impressive, but he has a role for the No. 1 seed in the West, which is ridiculous.

  7. Memphis Grizzlies: Johnny Davis, SG, Wisconsin
    Actual Pick: Walker Kessler

    Davis was the 10th pick, which is why he’s here, but he had a very poor rookie season. He might still be drafted in the lottery because of his potential, but not based off his rookie play.

  8. Philadelphia 76ers: Jaden Hardy, G, USA
    Actual Pick: David Roddy

    Hardy looks like a strong shooting specialist and is already a role player as a second-round pick, which you have to like.

  9. Milwaukee Bucks: MarJon Beauchamp, F, USA
    Actual Pick: MarJon Beauchamp

    Beauchamp actually had a role for the Bucks as a rookie, which was impressive as they had a very talented roster. Drafting him a second time would be a smart choice.

  10. San Antonio Spurs: Dalen Terry, F, Arizona
    Actual Pick: Blake Wesley

    Terry has a lot of talent, and while he plays hard and he works hard, he isn’t much of a scorer. He has, however, shown talent as a rebounder and a playmaker. You have to love the effort-role guys, and he should become one.

  11. Minnesota Timberwolves: Nikola Jovic, SG, Serbia
    Actual Pick: Wendell Moore

    Jovic barely played as a rookie, but he has a lot of potential and can become quite the role player.

  12. Miami Heat: Jake LaRavia, F, Wake Forest
    Actual Pick: Nikola Jovic

    LaRavia barely received minutes and performed poorly with the Grizzlies, but he’s a strong talent.

  13. Golden State Warriors: Blake Wesley, SG, Notre Dame
    Actual Pick: Patrick Baldwin

    Somehow, and I have no idea how it’s possible, Wesley shot 32.1% from the field and 38.5% from three. This shows he can at least be a shooting specialist.

  14. Memphis Grizzlies: Christian Koloko, PF/C, Arizona
    Actual Pick: TyTy Washington

    Koloko has shown elite shot-blocker potential, but he really needs to work on his offensive game.

  15. Oklahoma City Thunder: Davis Roddy, F, Colorado State
    Actual Pick: Peyton Watson

    Roddy has shown some talent as a shooting four, which keeps him in the first round.
