OT - NBA draft predictions

Submitted by chomz14 on June 26th, 2014 at 10:57 AM
What's the board thinking will go down tonight? #1 Jabari or Wiggins? Jabari should but they go Wiggins Who's drafted first? Stauskas or G. Harris? Nick 10 To Philly and Harris 11th to Denver then who? GR3 or McGary? GR3 27th to Phoenix Mitch 29th to OKC Sucks being a Piston fan and not having a pick even worth predicting but I'll go some oversized European player who will probably blow. How far will Embid slip? I'll say 6th to Boston

First, let me say that it will feel strange to not have the ceremonial Booing Of David Stern or his customary trolling of the audience for the first few seconds, but as for Michigan-centric predictions, the round distribution will be as follows:

 - Stauskas and McGry go in the first round in that order.

 - GRIII goes in the second round.

it'll be a wild night full of trades and head-scratching picks.  I have Wiggins going first, Stauskas going 9th (before Harris at 14), McGary at 24 (if not, Ford is convinced he has a promise in the 20s, OKC is the other possibiliity) and Robinson reuniting with Burke in Utah at #35.  I have Embiid off the board at #3, assuming the Sixers don't move their pick.  I don't think they're in a hurry to win and can afford him being out until January or later.  Have the Pistons taking UConn SF DeAndre Daniels at 38.  Should be a good fit, although he might need some D-League time to both fill out and fine-tune his game.

Self promo alert, but my full mock draft is at the following links:

1st Round    2nd Round

most talent in a long time and big time free agents this year and next. Lebron, Carmelo, and Kevin Love will impact this draft immensely. should be an awesome night as afar as draft nights.

Dante Exum is my sleeper if you can call him that. he will be as tall as caris with a better handle already and better finisher already so if caris is a lottery pick next year....this guy is still 17 I think.

I would guess that McGary would fall out of the first round before Robinson. GRIII worked out for eighteen teams, and I'm sure his athleticism wowed one of them in the 20-30 range. I think all three will go in round one, but who knows with how NBA execs think.

as the Hornets best choice needing a shooter to offset its woeful perimeter game. So, unless Philly takes him, I suspect he goes to Charlotte. Nik visited four cities for team workouts and the Hornets were first on the list. MJ wasn't present but the coach who wants more size in the lineup and shooting ability, praised Staukas for possessing both during his visit. I think he becomes the first pick of the new Hornets era, and if they add McGary at 24 it would be a great night all-around. The franchise would have really improved itself with both choices in my opinion. Interestingly, Robinson also came through here and got some praise in the press.
