Each week, four of Basketball Insiders’ top writers will break down the latest news and notes surrounding the 2015 NBA Draft. Included is a revised Mock Draft that reflects how each writer sees the draft landscape based on the latest news, workouts and information from in and around the process.

Previous Version: 1.0 | 2.0 | 3.0 | 4.0 | 5.0

Moke’s Notebook: As promised, things are getting a bit more interesting in our sixth mock draft. From what I am hearing from individuals close to the draft process in New York City, the Knicks have almost “no idea” what to do at number four, but they only present one place where the 2015 NBA Draft could fork.

There is still conflicting information coming out of Los Angeles as to who exactly the Lakers will end up walking away with once the draft is over, but we can rest assured that, in some order, Karl-Anthony Towns and Jahlil Okafor will be selected at the top. The Philadelphia 76ers are hard to read, from what I am hearing, but the prevailing sentiment is that they will eventually settle on either D’Angelo Russell or Emmanuel Mudiay at number three. After that, all bets are off because of two reasons: the Knicks and Willie Cauley-Stein.

From what I understand, the Knicks would be willing to trade back in the draft with interest in both Justise Winslow and Cameron Payne (as has been reported). As for Cauley-Stein, there are some that believe he is a serious threat to crack the top four. So, at this point, what happens between the third and sixth pick is still very much in the air, but Anthony-Towns, Okafor, Russell, Mudiay, Winslow and Cauley-Stein are the consensus top six, and I haven’t encountered anyone who is debating that. Who goes where is still up in the air, mainly because of the willingness of the Knicks to deal.

I haven’t gotten any new intel on either Kristaps Porzingis or Mario Hezonja, but I would watch those two names closely over the next few weeks, because we have seen international prospects sometimes jump the order.

The involved individuals with whom I have spoken have intimated to me that this draft is looking deeper than many initially thought, with Frank Kaminsky expected to be somewhere around the top 10 and Payne, Tyus Jones and Sam Dekker all being fringe lottery picks.

Joel’s Notebook: First of all, my No. 30 pick didn’t go through, so let me clarify that I have Rakeem Christmas going there. Christmas is reportedly doing really well in workouts and with Draymond Green up for extension and David Lee a trade candidate, shoring up the frontcourt rotation with depth and athleticism wouldn’t hurt.

Moving on, four of the top five picks in my mock draft this week attended either Kentucky or Duke. I’m not sure what that means, other than I’m leaning especially heavy away from the two international lottery kids for some reason. Detroit would be thrilled to land Hezonja at No. 8 considering he’s such a cutthroat scorer on the wing, which is something they obviously need, while Porzingis falling to Miami at No. 10 fills another need and represents another great value for the HEAT. I’m not sure I actually think both guys fall that far, but that’s where I’ve got things falling for now. It’s sure to change as we get close to the draft.

Frank Kaminsky and Sam Dekker both going in the top nine seems a little rich for what those guys bring to the table, but I haven’t heard or read many negative things about either player at this point in the process, so if there are teams looking to go the safe route, gathering up players that should have a place in the league for years even if they don’t transform into superstars is a reasonable strategy. Denver needs a home run, which is why one of the international kids could make sense at No. 7 if things play out this way, but Charlotte adding Dekker is a reasonably safe play. If they wanted to swing for the fences, though, Devin Booker is generating a lot of buzz lately as someone with All-Star potential if he’s able to get himself into better shape.

Indiana, meanwhile, is probably going to draft a point guard because while George Hill is plenty talented, the Pacers need someone that occasionally can act more as a distributor in that role. I’m not sure if it will be Jerian Grant or Cameron Payne that ultimately gets the call, but either guy would be a big help there. Myles Turner would be hard to pass up, too, though I think their need for backcourt help supersedes their need to move on from Roy Hibbert. We’ll see in a few weeks whether I’m actually right about that.

Alex’s Notebook: In my last few mock drafts, my top six has been the same: Jahlil Okafor to Minnesota, Karl-Anthony Towns to Los Angeles, D’Angelo Russell to Philadelphia, Emmanuel Mudiay to New York, Justise Winslow to Orlando and Kristaps Porzingis to Sacramento.

However, I switched things up this week and, while it’s still very early in the process and hard to say what will happen, I think this top six is a realistic possibility too.

This week, I have Winslow going to the Knicks. It’s possible they trade down to pick him, but I have him going at No. 4 in this mock. It’s no secret that the Knicks have expressed interest in Winslow. Phil Jackson and Derek Fisher met with Winslow at the Combine and were reportedly impressed with him, and Carmelo Anthony took the Duke product to a New York Yankees game and talked about mentoring him. I think Winslow is a very talented two-way player with a ton of upside, and I believe he could be a good piece for the Knicks. His arrival also could mean Fisher is planning to move Anthony to power forward, which, I believe, is for the best. If the Knicks aren’t sold on Mudiay or don’t want to reach on someone like Willie Cauley-Stein (who has a very limited offensive game and doesn’t seem like the kind of franchise cornerstone you want from a No. 4 pick), it’s possible they go with Winslow.

This would make things very interesting for the teams picking after New York.

Up until this point, I’ve had Winslow penciled in to Orlando because he seems like a perfect fit for the athletic, defensive-minded team Rob Hennigan is building. Their last several draft picks (Victor Oladipo, Elfrid Payton and Aaron Gordon) have been high-upside, defensive-minded players and Winslow fits that mold. Also, with Tobias Harris’ future up in the air, Winslow could’ve made sense as his potential replacement. However, if he’s not on the board, I think the Magic would go with Porzingis. He’s a very intriguing player, who’s a great athlete (who runs the floor well) and a very good shot blocker (which is important since he’ll be playing alongside Nikola Vucevic). But, most importantly, he can shoot the basketball, which Orlando’s offensively challenged roster desperately needs. Cauley-Stein has come up as an option for the Magic, but I’m told the front office is split on him. There are some who like him, while others feel he’d be a bad fit and isn’t nearly skilled enough. I think the 7’1 Porzingis would be the pick here, and while he’d be a project, he could be a very good fit with this up-and-coming Magic team.

This leaves Mudiay on the board for Sacramento, and the Kings would be thrilled to have a potential franchise point guard fall to them at No. 6. Mudiay doesn’t make sense for the Magic since they already have their backcourt of the future in Payton and Oladipo, but the Kings would snatch Mudiay up in a heartbeat. They’ve been looking for a long-term answer at point guard for quite some time and Mudiay could be that guy. While this seems pretty low for Mudiay, I’ve talked to a number of executives who have predicted he could go later than expected and be available in this range.

We’ll obviously have a better idea of what the top of the draft will look like over the next few weeks as the draft gets closer, but this is an interesting scenario to consider since it’s not out of the question.

Note: One other change I have from last week is Cameron Payne climbing to the Indiana Pacers at No. 11. This kid is the real deal and it wouldn’t surprise me if he continues rising and cracks the top 10. Like Moke said, the Knicks could trade down to select him or a team like the Sacramento Kings (who will reportedly work Payne out) could pick him. For a behind-the-scenes look at Payne’s pre-draft training and to learn more about him, check out my recent article here.

Steve’s Notebook: The top of the 2015 NBA Draft Class has been fairly set for some time. In some combination: Karl-Anthony Towns, Jahlil Okafor, D’Angelo Russell, Emmanuel Mudiay, Willie Cauley-Stein and Kristaps Porzingis should come off the board with the first six picks.

The next six still are way up in the air with as many as 15 guys possible in the next six picks. However, there are some names that seem to be getting fairly locked in as “the next six.”

There has been a lot of talk about Justise Winslow going in the top six, and that still very well could happen, but more and more executives are saying similar things about Winslow – good player with lots of potential, but not the player you build a team around. It’s easy to understand why fans are enamored with Winslow, he was stellar all season and in the NCAA tournament, he was a stifling defender and one of the more consistent offensive players for Duke. With that said, can he really defend small forwards in the NBA?

Looking at Winslow’s defensive numbers on the season, he was an excellent man to man defender allowing .7 points per possession. However, the challenge in really grading Winslow is the small sample size. Winslow had just 240 defensive possessions last season. Is that enough to say he’ll be an elite NBA defender?

The teams at the top of the board are not as sold as some of the fans seem to be. There is little doubt that Winslow is a top 10 selection, however it’s looking more and more that if the Knicks don’t take him at number 4, he could be on the board for a little bit longer.

Another name to watch in the process is Arkansas’ Bobby Portis. Word is he is working out incredibly well and that more and more teams see him as one of the better frontcourt swing players in the next tier. While Portis in the top 10 seems unlikely, there is a growing sense Portis is to go mid-to-late lottery.

There are few names getting a lot of love from executives:

R.J. Hunter is said to be doing really well for himself. Sam Dekker grabbed a few more fans at his Pro-Day. Rakeem Christmas is firmly in the hunt for a late first-round pick or as one of the early second-round picks. Florida shooter Michael Frazier has done well in the process so far and has a few teams in the late first round that have indicated he is firmly on their radar as a possible draft option if things fall a certain way. Richaun Holmes has picked up some momentum – maybe not enough to get into the first round, but his stock is on the rise. 7’2 big man Satnam Singh continues to get workouts and more and more teams are asking questions about him, which bodes well for his chances to be a very late second round pick.

Each week, four of Basketball Insiders’ top writers will break down the latest news and notes surrounding the 2019 NBA Draft. Each week you’ll see an updated mock draft that reflects how each writer sees the draft landscape based on the latest news, workouts, and information from the pre-draft process as well as a notebook, outlining each writers’ thoughts, observations and reporting on the draft.

Keep in mind; we are trying to find commonalities, which is why it is called the Consensus. The writers involved do not see each other’s selections until these are posted. It is done deliberately to make sure each writer is not influencing the others.

As this process plays out, the mocks will evolve, so look for a new Consensus each Wednesday, all the way up to draft day on June 20th.

Here is this week’s Consensus Mock:



Version: 1.0

Jesse’s Notebook: The NBA Combine is set to take place next week with 66 players expected to attend. Many of these players are going to scrimmage, take measurements, go through a variety of drills, and interview with teams. The Combine should provide a good amount of intel on these prospects that either isn’t available yet or has thus far been overlooked. This is also the time when teams will start giving more clues about their thoughts on certain prospects, what their respective teams are looking for and who is catching the attention of several teams. Oftentimes prospects start setting themselves apart and climbing team draft boards based on their performance at the Combine. On the flip side, some prospects are likely to start falling down team boards as new information is discovered. However, this is also a time where some players may get too much hype based on their measurements and other data points (let’s not forget the hype surrounding Luke Babbit after the 2010 Combine).

Mock draft boards are already all over the place and are sure to start shuffling even more as we move towards the Combine. However, the overall picture should start to become a bit clearer as prospects interview with teams, receive feedback, and as front office executives start making soft commitments to players and leaking out information about the players they have an eye on.

Spencer’s Notebook: In version two of our consensus mock draft, my top nine draft picks stayed the same as they were last week, but there was some slight tweaking otherwise.

As Steve said in the inaugural mock, predicting selections outside of the top slots is difficult. A good amount of teams could be picking for their need first and foremost rather than having a simple “best player available” approach. The picture will be a little clearer next week when we learn the results of the NBA Draft Lottery on May 14.

My most notable observation—there is an abundance of talented wings, raw and polished, in this 2019 NBA Draft class. Younger players such as RJ Barrett, Jarrett Culver, Cameron Reddish and De’Andre Hunter have the tools to succeed. However, finding the right organization to put those respective skill sets to use in the correct manner will be imperative to every one of them to reach their full potential.

Playoff teams are going to be able to add the more pro-ready prospects at that position, with multiple upperclassmen forwards who may be able to help right away – regardless of what team they end up with. Rui Hachimura, Cameron Johnson, Brandon Clarke, Matisse Thybulle and Grant Williams all fit the bill in that sense. While collegiate experience hardly compares to that of the NBA, the maturation of playing the game longer puts these guys ahead of the curve if you were to ask me.

Drew’s Notebook:Not much has changed since last week. The most noise we’ve heard in the last seven days is around accepted invitations to the NBA Draft Combine, as well as workouts. But fear not NBA fans, the Draft Lottery takes place this Tuesday with the Combine beginning the very next day. Things will definitely heat up soon!

With that being said, I spent a lot of time looking at the top teams in terms of draft order and thought a lot about their needs: the Bulls, Suns and Wizards could all be interested in adding a lead guard. This is, of course, an exercise in futility because we have not yet landed on a final draft order. Never the less, this led me bump Darius Garland up a few spots. I think he is extremely NBA-ready. And while a little undersized, he has an IT factor that most prospects at his level do not possess (excluding Zion Williamson, Ja Morant and RJ Barrett). Garland could develop into Kyrie Irving-type of player, or he could end up closer to D.J. Augustin. But I really like his confidence and how he moves with the ball. And until the Draft Lottery dictates the final order on 5/14, I’ve got to arrange prospects by my feelings on overall talent.

Another guy I plan to plan to study more closely is Sekou Doumbouya. I was compelled to drop him a few spots after watching more film of him over the weekend, but his youth (18 years old) and perceived versatility indicate that he’ll grow into an effective NBA player, assuming he’s given the proper time and resources to develop. And potential is just as important (if not more) as refined skill. I’m excited to see what, if anything, we can learn about Doumbouya at the Combine.

Tuesday, May 14 can’t get here soon enough.

Steve’s Notebook: The invite list of the 2019 NBA Draft Combine is out, and 66 players accepted the NBA’s invite to take part in the NBA’s annual draft showcase event. It’s important to note that there are three types of invitations; the first is extended to those players expected to go in the top 20, which does not require participation in the on-court portion of the Combine. Those players will undergo medical testing and face to face interviews with teams. The next group will do the same medical and interviews but are also expected to participate in the on-court portion as well. The third tier are those players willing to be last minute alternates in the event players pull out.

This year the NBA is holding a G-League event for draft-eligible players, just prior to next week’s Combine, the NBA has pledged the possibility of a full Combine invite to players that stand out among those additional 40 plus players that were invited to participate.

Why is a Combine invite important? In a typical year, more than 70 percent of players invited to the Combine end up being drafted, making the Combine list a pretty solid barometer on who is legitimately in the draft discussion.

There are two notable players that declined the NBA’s invitations, the first being Gonzaga’s Rui Hachimura and Washington’s Matisse Thybulle.

While it is not uncommon for players to bypass the Combine, especially if the players is all but assured to be drafted, it also usually signifies a player may have a draft commitment they are comfortable with making the dog and pony show of the Combine less desirable.

The 2019 NBA Draft Lottery is scheduled for Tuesday, May 14th, with the Combine itself getting underway on Wednesday with face to face team interviews.

As this process plays out, the mocks will evolve, so look for a new Consensus each Wednesday, all the way up to draft day on June 20th.

Here is this week’s Consensus Mock:



Jesse’s Notebook: The Draft Lottery is still two weeks away, so it’s somewhat difficult to put together a mock draft that feels completely well-grounded. This is especially the case with this year’s draft class, which features a consensus No. 1 pick in Zion Williamson but little else in terms of clarity. There are notable individual talents in this class, but a large range of opinions on what order these prospects should be drafted.

Considering this, I predict that team-fit will have a bigger influence on this draft class than previous classes, which have often featured more than a handful of top-tier prospects. For example, many scouts, talent evaluators and members of the media rank R.J. Barrett as the second best player in the draft and list him as likely to be drafted second overall. However, the Suns have a glaring hole at point guard, which means Phoenix might favor Ja Morant over Barrett in a scenario in which they have the second pick in the draft. The point here is that teams will likely be giving considerable weight to how players fit on their respective rosters starting as early as the second pick in the draft.

It’s always fun to dissect every bit of new information and adjust mock drafts in the weeks leading up to the draft. And for many NBA fans, it’s fun to engage in that process and pick apart the mock drafts of writers and journalists who cover the league. This summer should be an especially good year for fans to do so considering how different each writer’s mock draft boards will look compared to others. So be sure to stop by Basketball Insiders frequently to keep up with our mock drafts and give us your feedback on Twitter.

Spencer’s Notebook: The best time of the league year is here! While the remaining teams in the postseason continue to battle it out for a chance at a championship opportunity, those who aren’t in the dance are gearing up for a chance to add new talent to their respective franchises via the NBA Draft.

We might not be sure who lands where in the lottery as of yet—we’ll know on May 14 officially—but whatever ball club draws the first overall selection is a shoo-in to take Duke superstar Zion Williamson.

Williamson is not just a highlight reel, he’s the real deal. Though the freakish combination of power and athleticism captures everyone’s attention, it’s the intelligence and natural playmaking ability that will guide him at the next level. With the association trending towards higher possessions and more scoring in transition opportunities, the 6-foot-9 phenom will thrive with whatever team brings him in.

On to the remaining notables in this lottery—I went with Coby White to the Chicago Bulls at four because of their inconsistency at point guard. He’s a facilitator that can open up the floor due to his threat to score inside and make shots on the outside.

My favorite part of putting this together was adding two top-five worthy picks to the growing core of the Atlanta Hawks. After a sizable leap in his sophomore season at Texas A&M, Jarrett Culver proved to be one of the most sought-after wings in this entire draft class. His length is a matchup nightmare for any team, as is his ability to put it on the floor and get to the line.

Along with Culver, I have Travis Schlenk taking a flier on Oregon’s Bol Bol. The luxury of having two lottery picks is being able to take risks. The 7-foot-2 big man displayed flashes of greatness with his versatility on both ends. He’s able to move and handle the ball exceptionally well for a player his size, can knock down jump shots and, obviously, protect the rim. He’ll need to bulk up more and, unfortunately, he suffered a stress fracture in his left foot and only played nine games. But if the success of Joel Embiid—who had the same exact injury in the other foot in 2014—has taught us anything, it’s to be patient and trust the process.

Drew’s Notebook: With the NBA Draft Lottery only two weeks away, front offices around the league are in serious exploration mode, familiarizing themselves with all of the prospects eligible for the 2019 NBA Draft.

And speaking of prospects, lots will change regarding how they are viewed thanks to the NBA Draft Combine, which is set to run from May 15-19 in Chicago. It’s worth noting that while the combine commences on May 15, teams can begin private workouts before the combine. For example, the Atlanta Hawks began workouts on April 30, kicking things off with a six-player workout headlined by Nevada forward Jordan Caroline.

The next big date to keep an eye on following the combine is May 29, which is the withdrawal deadline for all prospects who would like to maintain NCAA eligibility. By May 30, we will all have a much clearer picture of who will go where. Until then, the only (almost) certain thing about the 2019 NBA Draft is Zion Williamson will be selected first overall by whichever team wins the lottery.

Steve’s Notebook: The 2019 NBA Draft looks to be a little unpredictable; outside the top 3 or 4 players, the next 20 players could go in a wildly unexpected way, mainly because NBA teams do not few this draft class the same way, and a lot of the notable players are viewed as a little interchangeable. For example, how much of a difference is there at the next for UNC’s Coby White and Texas Tech’s Jarrett Culver? It will come down to the team selecting and not some perceived gap in skill, potential or ability.

The same seems to be true of Texas’ Jaxson Hayes, Gonzaga’s Rui Hachimura and Arkansas’ Daniel Gafford. Hayes looks like the best of the group and more likely to come off the board first. However, what’s coming from teams – is they view a lot of these guys in the same group and are looking for them to go head-to-head to settle some of the debate on who could be the better long-term pro and ultimately a draft pick.

There are also some guys to watch in terms of stock dropping.

There are real medical concerns on Oregon’s Bol Bol; teams will want a long look at his medical. The belief from scouts and executives is that if he were healthy, he’d be a top 10 prospect, but with the navicular injury and his tremendous size, there is a desire to fully understand where he really in his recovery is before some teams would commit to him.

UNC’s Nassir Little is a mixed bag among NBA scouts, some point to his tremendous high school career as a reason to believe, but his underwhelming season at Carolina has impacted how teams view him. He will need to answer a lot of questions for teams in the workout process. The current read is that Little could go anywhere from 15 to 35. Workouts and personal interviews could go a long way towards cementing what side of that range he really lands.

Western Kentucky’s Charles Bassey is another name to watch. The word around NBA teams is that he may pull out of the 2019 NBA Draft if he does not get feedback at the NBA Combine suggesting he’d go in the first round. Word has it that his camp is looking for the ideal situation, and a soft promise might keep him in the draft. If teams are non-committal, he may pull out.

There are also some names projected lower in this draft that could surprise.

Virginia’s Kyle Guy has some fans. He could be one of the guys that could go 8 to 10 picks higher than his currently projected range. International guard Henri Drell could go late in the first round or early in the second round. It seems he has fans among teams holding multiple picks.

Washington State’s Robert Franks has had some teams in to see him recently, and the buzz on his is really positive. Franks is currently projected in the middle of the second round. However, there are some teams late in the first that seems to be very high on him; a solid workout schedule could garner a draft promise.

It is important to note that there are two different types of commitments teams give players – the first is the hard fast guarantee of selection. This usually accompanies a player shutting down workouts with other teams. In a typical draft, there are usually three or four of them made per draft.

The other is the soft commitment, which usually means a team pledged to draft the player, assuming the draft plays out as expected. This is a little riskier for the player in terms of shutting down workouts, because if the right player falls, they could be left without a chair.

Why do teams do these things – control and certainty. The draft is very unpredictable, and if a team is sold on a specific player, locking them in allows them to focus on other things in the transaction window. Because a team commits to a player, does not preclude a team higher up from drafting that player, they may not get the chance to work that player out.

Most smart agents will explain to their player that finding the ideal fit matters way more to a long NBA career than going one or two spots higher and getting that guaranteed floor, allows for the player to focus on being ready for Summer League and ultimately training camp.
