FlyHigh NBA Mock Draft.

Recommended Posts

1. Washington Wizards: John Wall, PG. Kentucky.

Not a bigger no brainer in the draft, plays a lot like Derrick Rose with a slasher's mentality.

2. Philadelphia 76ers: Evan Turner, PG/SG/SF. Ohio State.

To me, it's another no brainer. Sure you just lost Dalembert but this guy is too good to pass up.

3. New Jersey Nets: Derrick Favors, PF. Georgia Tech.

This guy has amazing upside and showed great improvement as the year went on.

4. Minnesota Timberwolves: Wesley Johnson, SF/SG. Syracuse.

Watched this guy play all year. Shawn Marion 2.0. Can slash and shoot the three. Johnny Flynn gets to play with him after all.

5. Sacramento Kings: Greg Monroe, PF/C. Georgetown.

This is where it gets interesting finally. Cousins may be the popular pick, but Monroe has great character and is one of the best bigs in this draft.

6. Golden State Warriors: Demarcus Cousins, PF/C. Kentucky.

The Warriors will be ecstatic to see Cousins sitting right there for their picking.

7. Detroit Pistons: Cole Aldrich, PF/C. Kansas.

There are a lot of ways they can go, and they will try to move some contracts such as Teyshaun Prince to move up and get Cousins or Monroe. Here they settle for Aldrich.

8. Los Angeles Clippers: Al Farouq-Aminu, SF/PF. Wake Forest.

The guy has a lot of talent and may go to the Pistons, but here he falls to the OTHER LA team. I know, hard to imagine there is one sometimes.

9. Utah Jazz: Luke Babbitt, SF/PF. Nevada.

Not a household name but the guy is very athletic. Probably too small to play the 4 in the NBA though.

10. Indiana Pacers: Gordon Heyward, SG/SF. Butler.

Don't tell me you didn't see this coming. Great player, his home and Larry Bird loves him. Wonder why?

11. New Orleans Hornets: Xavier Henry, SG/SF. Kansas.

Coming into the year he was projected in the top five. Still a lottery pick but the talent could reach much higher than this.

12. Memphis Grizzlies: Ed Davis, PF. North Carolina.

Memphis needs an athletic big guy to pair with one of the most underrated players in NBA history--Zach Randolph.

13. Toronto Raptors: Avery Bradley, PG/SG. Texas.

Some say this might be a reach, I think it's a steal. They Raptors NEED some guards, and they get a great one in Bradley.

14. Houston Rockets: Patrick Patterson, PF/C. Kentucky.

Third Kentucky guy off the board. Probably too small for the five, but Houston needs some bigs to play against the West.

15. Milwaukee Bucks: Ekpe Udoh, PF/C/SF. Baylor.

Probably won't play much at the 5 but this guy can flat out defend. His offense game will be worked on, but he will be at the worst a great energy guy off your bench.

16. Minnesota Timberwolves: James Anderson, SG/SF. Oklahoma State.

Very athletic and NBA ready. The T-Wolves have a strong looking starting five: Flynn, Brewer, Johnson, Love and Jefferson with Anderson coming off the bench.

17. Chicago Bulls: Paul George, SF. Fresno State.

Could go much higher but instead he lands with the Bulls. Great size for a three, might play a little four.

18. Miami Heat: Eric Bledsoe, SG/PG. Kentucky.

Dwayne Wade can't do it all, you're gonna need a point. Bledsoe steps in to be that guy.

19. Boston Celtics: Larry Sanders, PF/C. VCU.

When they lost Perkins in the NBA Finals, there wasn't anybody to come in and help out. Insurance for the future here.

20. San Antonio Spurs: Daniel Orton, PF/C. Kentucky.

Orton didn't rack up a lot of stats at Kentucky and is still very raw. Good news for Orton though--he gets to learn from one of the best in Tim Duncan.

21. Oklahoma City Thunder: Hassan Whitesdale, C. Marshall.

An up and coming team needs to add some size down low. Getting the first seven-footer can't hurt.

22. Portland Trail Blazers: Kevin Seraphin, PF/C. France.

A nice big body here that the Blazers will hope to get into the NBA now as he is the best foreign player coming into this draft.

23. Minnesota Timberwolves: Craig Brackins, PF. Iowa State.

The T-Wolves continue to improve when they get a big man in Brackins who happens to be the former teammate of one Wesley Johnson before he transferred to Syracuse.

24. Atlanta Hawks: Elliot Williams, SG. Memphis.

The Hawks will need somebody incase they end up losing Joe Johnson. Williams can help replace him.

25. Memphis Grizzlies: Devin Ebanks, SF. West Virginia.

Nice size at the three for Memphis here.

26. Oklahoma City Thunder: Armon Johnson, PG/SG. Nevada.

The Thunder get even better with a guy that could possibly take over the two in time.

27. New Jersey Nets: Jordan Crawford, SG. Xavier.

"Dunked" on LeBron, now maybe he gets a chance to play with him? I don't think so, but we'll see.

28. Memphis Grizzlies: Terrico White, PG/SG. Mississippi.

Memphis needs help at the point. Conley is improving but White could help add a 1-2 punch.

29. Orlando Magic: Dominique Jones, SG/SF. South Florida.

They are going to need to replace Vince Carter in a year, why not get a guy now that can give you a Carter-like athleticism off the bench?

30. Washington Wizards: Gani Lawal, PF. Georgia Tech.

The Wizards start off with a point guard and end with a big man.
