This pick isn't a question. Fultz is the top prospect and top scorer. He fills out a huge whole in Philly's backcourt.
This pick also isn't a question. Lonzo wants to be a Laker, and with LA trading D'Angelo Russell, they must want Lonzo.
TRADE!!! Sacramento wants Fox, and I think they get antsy. They go all in for Fox and jump up to get him. Boston is more than willing to slide back.
Jackson brings defense and energy to complement the loads of scorers already in Phoenix. Character concerns are real, but Phoenix should be remote enough to lessen that concern.
TRADE!!! Can Boston grab the guy they would've taken at 1 at 5? I think so with Tatum. He fills the hole on the wing but can also bump down to be a stretch 4.
Orlando doesn't have anybody that looks to be their franchise. Isaac has all the potential in the world, so I think the Magic invest in him.
Minnesota needs a stretch 4, and Markkanen is one of the truest stretch 4's to come out. He can slide right between Wiggins and Towns to form a terrifying, youn frontcourt for the TWolves.
Monk goes to the Big Apple to be the scorer that eventually "replaces" Melo. We all know he's out the door ASAP, so they need to fill his scoring void.
Dallas grabs a solid, NBA-ready PG. They need a franchise PG, and they don't have that yet.
The Kings get this pick from trading DeMarcus Cousins. This isn't a full replacement, but I like Collins as their top big man more than Cauley-Stein.
Adding Dwight Howard solidifies defense in the middle, and MKG has always been solid on the wing. Kennard brings offense and shooting to Charlotte to complement Kemba.
Detroit isn't in dire need of a PG because they have Reggie Jackson, but Ntilikina is too good of a prospect to let go.
Anuoby missed this year because of injury so he will slide. If he lives up to his potential, Denver gets a lockdown wing defender for years to come.
Collins is the hard-nosed grinder that any coach or exec loves. He provides instant offense for Miami, and he can sure up the hole left by Chris Bosh.
The Blazers are in a tough spot. Too good to tank, but they definitely don't have the fire power to contend in the West. Allen isn't going to tip them over the top, but he certainly adds to their roster.
