Default Chamberlain's Mock Draft



Just for fun. This is how I see it going down as of now, if all picks remain the same.

Feel free to add your own, you can do it at:

Agree or disagree? I'm bored, let's discuss.

A lot of mock drafts have Montiejunas up higher but I can see him being picked in the 10-15 range.

I think Markieff Morris and Fredette will be picked sooner. Jazz will be taking Fredette with the 12th pick book it.

It's hard to say where Jimmer ends up. He could be taken as high as #9 by Charlotte, in my opinion.

The thing about Jimmer at #12 to Utah is that, if they pick Brandon Knight #3 (which reports indicate is very likely to happen), whats the point of Jimmer? He won't be able to play the SG spot in the NBA.

Utah may end up picking Kanter or perhaps even Vesely at #3, which would then allow them to pick Jimmer at #12 if he's available still.

The top 5 looks about what I think will happen. Maybe a switch between Kanter and Val if Cleveland likes Val more. Beyond that, I don't really care who goes where.

An SF with no actual skills just athleticism and a "motor"? Pass. If you are an SF you better be able to shoot or create off the dribble for yourself or some kind of tangible skill. No Corey Brewers please.

I wouldn't have much of a problem picking Leonard if he was the best player available, but at #5 for the Raptors, he won't be. He's not the kind of guy you draft if your trying to fill a SF hole.

He is intriguing though, that kind of athleticism, slashing ability and defense will be valuable to some team, but the only reason he will be draft in the lottery is because of how weak this draft is.

If he had declared next year, he'd likely be a late first rounder.

I actually did a Print Screen on the page and posted it through tinypic, but it's all good.

So you think that Utah will take both Knight and Fredette?

I know it`s weird they probably won`t take both. Maybe they take Kanter with the 3rd and Fredette with the 12th. I`m really convinced that they will take Fredette with the later pick though.

It makes sense. They need outside shooting, they need a point guard and he's a local kid. Utah seems to pride themselves on having a "certain type" of player on their team. Though, that was under Sloan, things may be different now.

He actually tested poorly too in the combine, even though he "looks" really athletic. I'd rather have James Johnson.

you mean white?

1. Williams
2. Irving
3. Kanter
4. Knight
5. Val

Thought I would change it up a bit. I would actually consider this if I were cleveland. Not 100% sold on irving and you still get a good pg.

Yeah, but he's white.

nba.com's got Walker as the most common #5 pick, but Val is in the 5 slot for some of the mocks too:
