    My realistic dream draft is Andersen at #20 and Thanasis Antetokounmpo at #37. Sizable backup SF who can handle/move the rock and an athletic freak defender.

    If Ennis drops, I'm game. If not, I hope we go after Saric (Denver and him? He's too much like Gallo people!) or maybe GR3.

    Anybody try the ESPN draft machine? They have a list of 45 possible candidates for the first round. You make your selections and submit it.

    I wouldn't mind seeing Adreiane Payne at 20.

    No they're not. Gallinari is a pure shooter, big time scorer. Can play the 3 and the 4. Saric they say is the European version of Kyle Anderson. An all around guy.

    Saric maybe more all around, but both can put up big numbers, and Saric can play both the 3 and 4 himself. Whcih is why I like him, and want him. Ujiri, make it happen.

    I'd love to see Tyler Ennis at 20 if he's there.
    But more realistically at 20 Clint Capela, Kristaps Porzingis, Adrian Payne or KJ McDaniels in that order. The PFs as backup and McDaniels as a great SF defensive presence. Porzingis is an intriguing very young prospect who could be something special. High risk reward kind of guy.
    At 37 Mitch McGary if he's still there (especially if we take one of the Europeans at 20.
    I also like Cleanthony Early's game - especially at 37.
    If neither of those are there then take Damien Inglis - he looks like a defensive powerhouse at the 3 and still very young.
    Finally I'd love to get a Canadian at 59 - Khem Birch or Jordan Bachynski.

    Really interested to see where Embiid falls now. There's a lot of players in this draft that i would take first before Embiid. Big man w/ foot problems/injury history is just a big red flag. I don't think he gets past Boston though but if i'm the Celtics no way i take Embiid 6th overall. Just too risky.

    If you look at the history of big man in this league w/ foot problems. From Bill Walton to Sam Bowie, Ilgauskas, Yao Ming, Greg Oden. I can go on and on. It's pretty scary.

    Too lazy to do another full mock draft. But here's my top 6 + Raps prediction:

    1. CLE - Wiggins
    2. MIL - Parker
    3. PHI - Exum
    4. ORL - Smart
    5. Jazz - Vonleh
    6. BOS - Embiid
    20. TOR - Ennis/Stokes/Capela

    Kristaps Porzingis, if I'm BC, I will draft him and mode him into an Andrea Bargnani 2.0

    However, I would be happy to land one of T.Ennis, K.Anderson, A.Payne, C.Capela, K.McDaniels, or even Z.LaVine. I would be sad if we land one of J.Stokes, C.Wilcox, R.Hood, TJ.Warren, or even S.Napier.

    T.Ennis - Would love to see him slip all the way to us, could potentially be a Damon Stoudamire, Tony Parker clone in the making beside he's Canadian, would love to play hard for his own team, he would be the iconic figure for years to come since Vince Carter

    A.Payne - Despite the fact that he has some issues with his back but I see him as a better hustle fan favorite player, and like Amir Johnson, he could contribute right away; however we already have Amir, 2Pat, T.Hansborough and Chuck Hayes

    K.Anderson - Depends on where K.Lowry will end up in the upcoming season. I see the Raptors drafting him and mode him into our Magic Johnson and grab the Kevin Durant sweepstake when 2016 season roams along. K.Anderson is better suited to play the PG in the league (at the best possible scenario he would be a J.Rose), at the worst, Shaun Livingston.

    C.Capela - Capela is a great rebounder, a Kendrick Perkins clone, would be a terrific backup Center for us if we end up drafting him; however I see him being the darkhorse of the draft and might go top 10 in this year's draft

    K.McDaniels - I really like his work ethics, wouldn't hurt to have a 6th man of a player to be the primary backup for both DeRozan or T-Ross, he could have a Gerald Green, JR Smith, Iman Shumpert type of career

    Z.LaVine - LaVine is a great player in the making, an athletic version of Klay Thompson, LaVine could be an allstar given a few years of burn in the league

    Why Not
    J.Stokes - Some say he could potentially be a great player like Tobias Harris or Kenneth Faried but I see all busts written all over this guy

    CJ Wilcox - A 2nd round steal but not worth the top 20th pick for this guy despite what he says to T-Ross during recruitment camp and how much he wants to play for the Raptors

    R.Hood - He's just too much of a T-Ross, both are considered as a 3D glue guy, 2nd or 3rd option on a good team, not worth the 20th pick. We have T-Ross, don't need another Hood.

    TJ.Warren - Some speculate we should grab him but I see bust written all over him, he may score over 20ppg in his college career and just like so many who have scored high in college end up not living up to their potential in the league, he;s like a James Johnson 2.0 or Wesly Johnson 2.0 in the making

    S.Napier - He's not worth the 1st round pick, period! More like a 2nd round pick, whoever picks him over the above players will regret it. One game won't make a difference about his overall skills.

    I literally just copied and pasted what I did on the ESPN.com draft machine. I have Embiid 1st here even though he probably gets drafted at 3. I think Cleveland trades down to get him -- they're the only team that had full access to his medicals, they didn't seem concerned about his back, and they're the only people who know if the foot was an old injury, etc. No other team has even interviewed him. I think they figure a way to get him. The rest is guesses and reading online rumors.

    You are clearly very plugged into this draft class and know a lot about the prospects. As such we should all obviously take your opinions seriously.

    Such as knowing that Porzingis withdrew and won't be drafted until next year. Well, there goes that idea.

    Thank you for this analysis, tenforthewin.

    Well better than mine anyway, I refuse to do this due to the fact that it would be embarrassingly wrong plus there will potentially be trades and stuff so it seems rather pointless.
