NBA Mock Draft 2016: Point Guards


Point Guard / 6-4 / Providence / Junior
16.4 ppg, 5.3 rpg

This projected pick is taking into consideration that there's a good chance that the pick gets moved. If not, Marquese Chriss or Dragan Bender are both upside picks that Boston could decide upon. Dunn would give them an additional point guard to platoon with Isaiah Thomas, Avery Bradley and Marcus Smart. 

Comparison: Devin Harris
Salary: $3,952,500*
Point Guard / 6-5 / Kentucky / Freshman
20.0 ppg, 5.2 rpg

The Pelicans would probably prefer to see Dunn available here, but Murray is a very solid kid with a high floor. There is some optimism that he can develop into a point guard, which he played in high school. But his lack of speed, which makes the CJ McCollum comparisons far-fetched, likely limits him to being a shooting guard. He is a bit longer than some reports have stated as he measured at 8'4.5" in his first year and then a 8'2.5" standing reach in his second year at the Hoop Summit, which is probably more accurate than the 8'1" he measured at the Kentucky Combine.

Point Guard / 6-3 / Vanderbilt / Sophomore
14.1 ppg, 5.2 apg

Mike Conley potentially bolting in free agency, the Grizzlies will probably be looking for a point guard at their pick. While we view him as a bit of a reach here, he would offer a solid upside player at a posiiton of need.

Comparison: Spencer Dinwiddie
Salary: $1,494,800*
Point Guard / 6-1 / Notre Dame / Junior
15.8 ppg, 4.7 apg

Jackson could become more of a vocal leader, but for a team searching for an identity, adding a traditional point guard to go along with the 6-foot-10 one they're likely to grab at No. 1 would fill a pressing need for them.
