Alex Sarr
This 2024 NBA Mock Draft is updated Sunday, June 9, 2024. Follow me @walterfootball for updates.

1. Atlanta Hawks Atlanta Hawks: Zaccharie Risacher, F, France France
Back-to-back French big men going No. 1 overall may not be the best look for the NBA, but Zaccharie Risacher and Alex Sarr are the two favorites to be the top pick in the wake of the Hawks’ surprise victory in the draft lottery. Atlanta has two great guards, but needs better interior play.

2. Washington Bullets Washington Bullets: Alex Sarr, C, France France
The Bullets didn’t get the top pick, but they sort of do because they’re landing Alex Sarr, who easily could be the top selection in the 2024 NBA Draft.

3. Houston Rockets Houston Rockets: Stephon Castle, PG, Connecticut
The Rockets have Fred VanVleet at point guard, but he’ll be a 31-year-old entering his contract year soon. The Rockets may want to obtain a point guard for the future.

4. San Antonio Spurs San Antonio Spurs: Nikola Topic, PG, Serbia Serbia
There are three talented point guards in this draft, and they could go in any order. I imagine the Spurs would want one of them to upgrade Tyus Jones.

5. Detroit Pistons 2024 NBA Mock Draft Detroit Pistons: Reed Sheppard, G, Kentucky
The Pistons need lots of help. One area is a two guard, as Detroit sorely needs a better backcourt mate for Cade Cunningham.

6. Charlotte Hornets Charlotte Hornets: Dalton Knecht, SG/SF, Tennessee Tennessee
The Hornets have LaMelo Ball … and that’s about it in the backcourt. They could use an upgrade next to Ball.

7. Portland Trailblazers Portland Trailblazers: Matas Buzelis, SF, USA USA
The Blazers have quality guard and center play. Their wings are very weak, so they may target one with this selection.

8. San Antonio Spurs San Antonio Spurs: Tidjane Salaun, SF, France France
The Spurs used their first pick in the top eight on a new point guard. They can use their second choice on a new wing, which must be addressed as well. It also helps that Tidjane Salaun will be able to speak French for Victor Wembanyama.

9. Memphis Grizzlies Memphis Grizzlies: Rob Dillingham, PG, Kentucky Kentucky
Can the Grizzlies still trust Ja Morant? Given that Morant seems to get into trouble all the time, Memphis may just move on from him.

10. Utah Jazz Utah Jazz: Donovan Clingan, C, Connecticut Connecticut
The Jazz could go with the best player available. It wouldn’t hurt to find a true center, which is something they don’t have at the moment.

11. Chicago Bulls Chicago Bulls: Cody Williams, SF, Colorado Colorado
The Bulls need to get Alex Caruso out of the starting lineup, so they could target a prospect like this to make it happen.

12. Oklahoma City Thunder Oklahoma City Thunder: Ja’Kobe Walter, SG, Baylor
The Thunder aren’t getting a starter at No. 12, but they could stand to add some quality backcourt depth with this pick.

13. Sacramento Kings Sacramento Kings: Devin Carter, G, Providence Providence
The Kings could lose Malik Monk in free agency, so here’s a viable replacement for him.

14. Portland Trailblazers Portland Trailblazers: Ronald Holland, SF, USA USA
DeAndre Ayton is entrenched as Portland’s center, but the team took a hit with its paint play when Ayton was out of the lineup. Better depth is needed. The Blazers could also use a wing, as they happen to be very weak in that area.

15. Miami Heat Miami Heat: Jared McCain, PG, Duke Duke
The Heat acquired Terry Rozier last season. He was a temporary solution at the position. Here’s an answer for the long haul.
