    Julius Randle at 6 is WAY too low. In my mind, if I was drafting #1, I'd probably take Julius Randle. It would be close between him and Wiggins. At the very least Randle would be the #2 pick on my draft board.

    Adjust the draft so that the Lakers and Celtics get the #1 and #2 picks.

    I also think some team is going to be really ecstatic with Marcus Smart. I like him more than just about anybody on the board.

    1. Wiggins
    2. Randle
    3. Smart

    The freaks of nature are tempting, namely: Exum, Parker, Ebiid, but I'd rather have those guys as my top 3.

    I think Smart is going to be beast. He is going to be a GREAT pg in this league.

    Šarić and Hezonja are huge steals at #12 and #27, respectively. Šarić has been flirting with a triple-double in almost every game he's played in for the past three months. Hezonja hasn't been playing much for Barcelona, but he only turned 19 recently and this is what he does when he gets the opportunity:

    <iframe width="560" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/LzlNc2PkxqU" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    26 points in 21 minutes. I think he'll opt out of the draft and go in the lottery next season after he proves himself in Barcelona.

    Btw, Nurkić is a scam (#21 pick), a big body, but not very intelligent and his conditioning is pretty bad. I'm also surprised to see that Bogdan Bogdanović isn't on this mock, he's a keeper.

    I see Smart being a bust in the league.

    I agree, as the Rockets are slated to pick at twenty five.

    Randle's offensive game is extremely limited. He has almost no use of his right hand and repeatedly tries to force his way into the paint, a strategy that won't work in the NBA because Randle won't have the advantage of being bigger than most of the players defending him. Additionally, his lack of explosiveness and below-average wingspan will make it difficult for him to get his shot off against athletic power forwards.

    Randle's ball-handling ability is advanced for a player of his size and build, and his rebounding at both ends is excellent. But maybe more than any other player in the draft, his success or failure will hinge on his being drafted by the team and having players around him who compliment his strengths and compensate for his weaknesses.

    Parker doesn't belong in that group, as his athleticism is limited compared to other players expected to be drafted high. What separates Parker from his peers is his maturity and his knowledge of the game, which surpasses most nineteen-year-old men. Although I believe he's more athletic than most people realize, he's most certainly not a freak of nature and shouldn't be compared to either Embiid or Exum.

    Not without trading Harden or Dwight. A ton of future firsts would do it, but I don't see Morey handicapping himself like that.

    Just what we need, more young inexperienced players starting.

    I am biased but I would love to see the Rockets snag Jordan Adams out of UCLA with the 25th pick
