Brian Bayless 2017 NBA Mock Draft

Round 1 Picks 16-30

Brian Bayless Last Updated: June 19, 2017.

  1. Chicago Bulls: Jawun Evans, PG, Oklahoma State

    Chicago needs a starting point guard. They never replaced Derrick Rose and Evans makes total sense here.

  2. Milwaukee Bucks: Justin Patton, C, Creighton

    The Bucks get Justin Patton here. Patton is a great fit for what the Bucks need at center.

  3. Indiana Pacers: Luke Kennard, SG, Duke

    The Pacers have a good starting five. I think they ignore need and take the best player on their board. At this point that player is Kennard.

  4. Atlanta Hawks: T.J. Leaf, PF, UCLA

    T.J. Leaf can play the 3 at small forward or the 4 at power forward. Hawks need forward upgrades at both spots making Leaf a perfect pick here.

  5. Portland Trail Blazers: Bam Adebayo, C, Kentucky

    Portland gets a center here. Bam Adebayo is a great defender.

  6. Oklahoma City Thunder: Ivan Rabb, PF, California

    Ivan Rabb would be a great replacement for Serge Ibaka. He's not the defender Ibaka was, but he scores like Ibaka on offense.

  7. Brooklyn Nets: Terrance Ferguson, SG, Adelaide

    The Brooklyn Nets need a point guard, shooting guard, small forward, and power forward. Ferguson is the top player on the board at 22.

  8. Toronto Raptors: Isaiah Hartenstein, PF, Zalgiris

    His size and power forward possibilities plus the Raptors losing 3 power forwards to Free Agency make him an option for the Raptors at 23. Hartenstein makes sense here.

  9. Utah Jazz: Caleb Swanigan, PF, Purdue

    The Jazz need an upgrade at power forward over Derrick Favors. Caleb Swanigan out of Purdue is an awesome fit here.

  10. Orlando Magic: OG Anunoby, SF, Indiana

    Orlando should get OG Anunoby coming off a season ending injury expecting a steal. OG Anunoby is a steal at this point since he's a great defender.

  11. Portland Trail Blazers: Semi Ojeleye, SF, SMU

    Portland has Evan Turner and Al-Farouq Aminu at small forward. Semi Ojeleye is a great shooter and defender plus he may be an upgrade over both.

  12. Brooklyn Nets: Harry Giles, PF, Duke

    Harry Giles was a top 5 prospect back at the beginning of the year. He falls to Brooklyn due to injuries.

  13. Los Angeles Lakers: Thomas Bryant, C, Indiana

    The Lakers get a starting center. Thomas Bryant is the top center on the board at this point.

  14. San Antonio Spurs: Tyler Dorsey, SG, Oregon

    San Antonio gets a shooting guard for when Manu Ginobli retires. Tyler Dorsey is good on both offense and defense. That's something the Spurs value.

  15. Utah Jazz: Derrick White, SG, Colorado

    Utah drafts Derrick White. He's versatile enough to play the 1 at point guard or the 2 at shooting guard plus he defends well. That's why Derrick White makes sense here at 30.
