Default Official 2016 NBA Draft Discussion Thread

Discuss your thoughts on the 2016 NBA draft. Any/all of this, and more:

- Who do you think will be the best player in the draft?
- Which players could have an instant impact?
- Which players may not have instant impact but may develop into stars or at least really good rotation players?
- Who is overrated in this thing?
- Who are the sleepers out there?
- Whatever other thoughts you have on 2016 draft prospects.

And discuss anything else that happens.

Some useful pre-draft notes here: http://www.insidehoops.com/draft.shtml

Brandon Ingram, highest ceiling.

Ben Simmons, more established and already averaging near 20/10/5 in college.
Buddy Hield, a senior whos ready to play an NBA.

Skal Labissiere, he still needs to improve his game but his ceiling is high.

Quote:
- Who is overrated in this thing?
Dragan Bender, hes good but nowhere near a top 5 pick. Some mock draft sites have him at #3 which is insane.

Quote:
- Who are the sleepers out there?
Thon Maker, nbadraft.net has him at #27 but his ceiling is as good as Ben Simmons.

Well I heard my Nets are trying to snatch a first round pick, I hope this happens.

Some are really hating on the Hornets for this, but this draft is ass at 22, so they picked up a shooter on a solid deal for not much in exchange.
I like pragmatic trades like this, that actually make you better.
