Default Do your NBA mock top 5 here.

1. Cleveland Cavaliers - Kyrie Irving, PG, Duke.
2. Minnesota Timberwolves - Brandon Knight/Kemba Walker, PG, Kentucky/Connecticut.
3. Utah Jazz - Jimmer Fredette/Enes Kanter.
4. Cleveland Cavaliers - Derrick Williams, SF, Arizona.
5. Toronto Raptors - Kanter/player Minnesota doesn't pick.

Yea, but this draft is terrible. They could go with Kanter, as well. I think Flynn is better, but they have already ruined their relationship with him so it's either get Rubio or take them.

People are ****ing retarded if they think the Jazz will waste the 3rd pick on Jimmer. We have the 12th pick aswell and I would be content with Jimmer at 12

If the Raptors somehow managed to magically get Kanter at 5 then this abortion of a lottery wouldn't be that bad. It won't happen though.

Surely the Jazz aren't dumb enough to take Fredette at 3 right? I think Kanter is going to be the best player in this draft, I'd take him, but I suspect they'll take Williams if he's still there.

We should just trade our pick to the Wizards for maybe Javlee McGee?

They can pick up Derrick William.

I don't see them taking Williams after just taking Heyward. I think Kanter SHOULD be the pick if he is still there, BUT we'll see. Jimmer won't last to number 12, not with this weak class.

Why on earth would we take Irving and Walker? Smallest backcourt ever?

1. Cleveland Cavaliers - Kyrie Irving
2. Minnesota Timberwolves - Enes Kanter
3. Utah Jazz - Jimmer Fredette
4. Cleveland Cavaliers - Derrick Williams
5. Toronto Raptors - Brandon Knight

The reasoning behind Fredette at #3 is that there really is nobody else in the draft at that point who is dramatically better than Fredette; I feel like the Jazz would rather take a "chance" and take Fredette on the off chance that he is a fringe All-Star one day. Who else would they take? Williams wouldn't fit, especially with Favors/Hayward on board, and any of the other PG's (Knight, Walker) won't generate the excitement or cohesiveness with the Jazz and the fanbase as Fredette would.

I could see some trades in the top three. I could see Minnesota trading down with Toronto to allow Toronto to get Kanter, and I could also see Utah trading with Toronto so they can get Kanter if he doesn't go in the top two.

I could also see Utah ****ing with Cleveland and convincing them to swap 3 and 4 so Cleveland can land Williams.

1. Kyrie - lots of hype to pass, although I am not sure if he will live up to it.

2. Kanter - Min has future PG and PF in Rubio and Love. They can use a big to get some inside scoring. However, if Kanter starts, Love might only average 10 RPG at best.

3. Utah might trade this. Williams is the best prospect but Utah has too many solid bigs in Favors, Al, and Paul. If they must, I like Knight who is super young and can take over once Harris starts to decline.

4. If Williams is still here, then it is a no brainer.

5. Do people still care at this point? Weak draft class and everything is a mystery from here on. I have a feeling that they will draft another Int. player. Maybe Vesely?

If it is like this. I can see Utah and Toronto doing a trade. Utah gets Knight with a lower price tag and Raptors would love to have Williams to replace Barg, who I think the raps might be sick of.
