Round 1

Round 1: 16-30
16. Bulls: Justin Jackson, Small Forward, North Carolina

There is a lot of uncertainty around Chicago's current scorers, D-wade and Jimmy Butler. Justin Jackson gives a dynamic scorer off the bench if both players return, or could play along side either of them if Chicago decides to make a roster change this Summer.

17. Bucks: Donovan Mitchell, Guard, Louisville

The Bucks have a surplus of big men but need depth in the back court. Mitchell provides explosive athleticism and length (6-10 wing span despite only being 6-2) to add to a back court of Brogdon and Middleton.

18. Pacers: O.G Anuoby, Guard, Indiana

The Pacers could use help at a variety of different positions. Anuoby provides length and versatility to play the 2, 3 and 4 depending on the line up. He is an explosive athlete and has great potential as a versatile defender at the next level.

19. Hawks: Ivan Rabb, Power Forward, California

I fully expect Millsap to walk this off season. I think he is looking to move on from Atlanta and find a more functional organization to join. Rabb is a potential replacement for Millsap. He can play along Howard to provide rebounding, scoring and a versatile defender at the 4.

20. Blazers: Terrence Ferguson, Shooting Guard, Australia

The Blazers have 3 first rounders, so moving one or more of the picks is a very real possibility. If they stand put, Ferguson is a potential 3-and-D wing player that could have a long, productive career at the next level.

21. Thunder: Semi Ojeleye, Forward, SMU

The Thunder need help around Russ. Ojeleye is a versatile scorer, though a bit undersized at around 6-6. He has an intriguing skill set in today's stretch-4 landscape, howerver.

22. Nets: Justin Patton, Center, Creighton

The Nets need help everywhere and are in a position to take the best player available. In this case, it is Patton. He has great size and athleticism to play true center at the next level. Brook Lopez is a free agent after the 2017-18 season, so drafting Patton could give the Nets their center of the future, should Lopez walk next summer.

23. Raptors: Kyle Kuzma, Power Forward, Utah

Toronto takes a versatile scoring power forward to bolster their front line.

24. Jazz: Tyler Lydon, Forward, Syracuse

The Jazz could use depth in the backcourt, but there isn't a lot of talent there at this point in the draft. Lydon gives the Jazz a big shooter to stretch the floor at either the 3 or 4 position.

Jazz's Needs via ESPN's RPM

25. Magic: Harry Giles, Power Forward, Duke

With their 2nd pick of the 1st round, the Magic can afford to take a high-risk flier on Giles. He has star potential, but his injury history is a huge red-flag. If he pans out, this could be a steal for Orlando.

Magic's Needs via ESPN's RPM

26. Blazers: Bam Adebayo, Power Forward, Kentucky

With their 3rd pick in the 1st round, Portland can go best player available. Here, it is Bam; the big man out of Kentucky had a productive Freshman year and could have a long career as a banger inside.

27. Nets: Juwan Evans, Point Guard, Oklahoma State

Again, Brooklyn needs help at every position. They took a big man earlier, now can take a scoring guard to boost their offense.

28. Lakers: Jordan Bell, Power Forward, Oregon

The Lakers get the high-energy big man out of Baylor that stole the show with his shot blocking and defensive presence. He would fit right in with the Lakers core.

29. Spurs: Frank Jackson, Point Guard, Duke

The Spurs take a point guard to replace the aging Tony Parker and free agent Patty Mills.

30. Jazz: Josh Hart, Shooting Guard, Villanova

The Jazz take a volume scorer to bolster their offense. He could be a potential replacement for Hayward if he leaves in free agency.
