Philadelphia: Markelle Fultz Point Guard / 6-5 / Washington / Freshman 23.2 ppg, 5.9 apg The Sixers get themselves a (likely) franchise point guard to add to their core of Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons. Philly will indeed be exciting to follow. Twitter: @MarkelleF Comparison: James Harden Salary: $5,903,160* 2. LA Lakers: Lonzo Ball Point Guard / 6-6 / UCLA / Freshman 14.6 ppg, 7.6 apg If not the best one, the Lakers certainly select the most high-profile player in the draft. Expect Ball to make his teammates better right away. Twitter: @ZO2_ Comparison: Jason Kidd Salary: $5,281,680* 3. Boston: Jayson Tatum Small Forward / 6-8 / Duke / Freshman 16.8 ppg, 7.3 rpg Danny Ainge surprises a lot of people going with Jayson Tatum over Josh Jackson. The Celtics get even deeper with a player with a good chance of becoming a star down the road. Twitter: @jaytatum0 Comparison: Allan Houston Salary: $4,743,000* 4. Phoenix: Josh Jackson Small Forward / 6-8 / Kansas / Freshman 16.3 ppg, 7.4 rpg Super versatile forward with great upside who could give Phoenix much-needed star power. Twitter: Comparison: Kawhi Leonard Salary: $4,276,320* 5. Sacramento: De’Aaron Fox Point Guard / 6-3 / Kentucky / Freshman 16.7 ppg, 4.6 apg The Kings pick yet another Kentucky guy in De’Aaron Fox. He’s really talented and fills a need at point guard for the team. Twitter: @swipathefox Comparison: John Wall Salary: $3,872,520* 6. Orlando: Jonathan Isaac Small Forward / 6-10 / Florida State / Freshman 12.0 ppg, 7.8 rpg Big man with great mobility who could make an impact on the defensive end pretty soon. Offensive game needs improvement. Twitter: @jisaac_01 Comparison: Rashard Lewis Salary: $3,517,200* 7. Minnesota: Lauri Markkanen (CHI) Power Forward / 7-0 / Arizona / Freshman 15.6 ppg, 7.2 rpg A poor man’s Dirk Nowitzki who will spread the floor for the Bulls. How much will he struggle defensively at the pro level? Twitter: @MarkkanenLauri Comparison: Ryan Anderson Salary: $3,210,840* 8. New York: Frank Ntilikina Point Guard / 6-5 / Strasbourg IG (France) / 1998 5.1 ppg, 2.0 rpg Has terrific length and size for the point guard position. Probably not ready to contribute right away and Knicks don’t have a great track record of developing young players. Twitter: Comparison: Dante Exum Salary: $2,941,440* 9. Dallas: Dennis Smith Point Guard / 6-2 / North Carolina State / Freshman 18.1 ppg, 6.2 apg Extremely athletic guard joins one of the least athletic squads in the NBA. Needs to improve jump shot and defense. Twitter: @Dennis4Smith Comparison: Baron Davis Salary: $2,703,960* 10. Sacramento: Zach Collins (POR) Center / 7-0 / Gonzaga / Freshman 10.0 ppg, 5.9 rpg Quite an interesting two-way player for Portland. Has great footwork and blocks a lot of shots. Twitter: @zcollins_33 Comparison: Brad Daugherty Salary: $2,568,600* 11. Charlotte: Malik Monk Shooting Guard / 6-3 / Kentucky / Freshman 19.8 ppg, 2.5 rpg Can both hit three-pointers and drive to the basket. Defense and playmaking are not strengths. Twitter: @AhmadMonk Comparison: Louis Williams Salary: $2,440,200* 12. Detroit: Luke Kennard Shooting Guard / 6-6 / Duke / Sophomore 19.5 ppg, 5.1 rpg Good shooter with limited athleticism for the Detroit Pistons. Agent: Steve Heumann Comparison: Nik Stauskas Salary: $2,318,280* 13. Denver: Donovan Mitchell (UTA) Shooting Guard / 6-3 / Louisville / Sophomore 15.5 ppg, 4.8 rpg Intense competitor and hard-nosed defender who’s been compared to Dwyane Wade by some. Twitter: @spidadmitchell Comparison: Norman Powell Salary: $2,202,240* 14. Miami: Bam Adebayo Power Forward / 6-10 / Kentucky / Freshman 13.0 ppg, 8.0 rpg Great body and athleticism. Should be a good rim protector in the NBA. Has surprised many with his shooting lately. Twitter: @Bam1of1 Comparison: Mason Plumlee Salary: $2,092,200* 15. Portland: Justin Jackson (SAC) Small Forward / 6-8 / North Carolina / Junior 18.2 ppg, 4.6 rpg Has a strong all-around game, but doesn’t excel in any particular area. Agent: Travis King Comparison: Rod Higgins Salary: $1,987,440* 16. Chicago: Justin Patton (MIN) Center / 7-1 / Creighton / Freshman 12.9 ppg, 6.2 rpg Seven-footer with tremendous athleticism. Still very green. Twitter: @JustinPatton17 Comparison: Brendan Haywood Salary: $1,888,200* 17. Milwaukee: DJ Wilson Small Forward / 6-10 / Michigan / Sophomore 11.0 ppg, 5.3 rpg Late bloomer with some holes to his game to work through, but he definitely has potential. Twitter: Comparison: Jared Jeffries Salary: $1,793,760* 18. Indiana: TJ Leaf Power Forward / 6-10 / UCLA / Freshman 16.3 ppg, 8.2 rpg Face-up four that fits into today’s spread-the-floor style perfectly. His toughness and ability to extend his shot remain concerns. Twitter: Comparison: Nick Collison Salary: $1,704,120* 19. Atlanta: John Collins Power Forward / 6-10 / Wake Forest / Sophomore 19.2 ppg, 9.8 rpg Athletic big man who displayed better than expected shooting touch in the workout circuit. Twitter: Comparison: Richaun Holmes Salary: $1,627,320* 20. Portland: Harry Giles (SAC) Power Forward / 6-10 / Duke / Freshman 3.9 ppg, 3.8 rpg Has a bright future in the NBA if healthy. That’s a big if, though. Twitter: @HGizzle1 Comparison: Bobby Portis Salary: $1,562,280* 21. Oklahoma City: Terrance Ferguson Shooting Guard / 6-7 / Adelaide 36ers (Australia) / 1998 4.6 ppg, 1.1 rpg Oklahoma City drafts a project in Terrance Ferguson. Didn’t play much in Australia last season, yet drew positive reviews. Twitter: @the2kferguson Comparison: Terrence Ross Salary: $1,499,760* 22. Brooklyn: Jarrett Allen Center / 6-10 / Texas / Freshman 13.4 ppg, 8.4 rpg It was a long night for the Texas center. On the bright side, he should get minutes for a team that’s clearly not in win-now mode. Twitter: @JarrettAllen55 Comparison: Lorenzen Wright Salary: $1,439,880* 23. Toronto: OG Anunoby Small Forward / 6-8 / Indiana / Sophomore 11.6 ppg, 5.4 rpg Has all the physical tools to become a solid pro, but game needs a lot of refinement. Twitter: Salary: $1,382,280* 24. Utah: Tyler Lydon (DEN) Power Forward / 6-9 / Syracuse / Sophomore 13.1 ppg, 8.6 rpg Stretch four with very good three-point shooting percentages in college. D is a concern. Twitter: @Tyler_Lydon14 Salary: $1,326,960* 25. Orlando: Anzejs Pasecniks (PHI) Center / 7-2 / Gran Canaria (Spain) / 1995 7.8 ppg, 3.1 rpg Has quite a good touch around the rim, but needs to add a lot strength. Twitter: Salary: $1,273,920* 26. Portland: Caleb Swanigan Center / 6-9 / Purdue / Sophomore 18.5 ppg, 12.5 rpg Has a high basketball IQ, good rebounding skills and little athleticism. Twitter: Comparison: Ike Diogu Salary: $1,231,560* 27. Brooklyn: Kyle Kuzma (LAL) Power Forward / 6-9 / Indiana / Sophomore 16.4 ppg, 9.3 rpg He offers a nice mix of experience and upside as a potential face-up four. Twitter: Comparison: Vladimir Radmanovic Salary: $1,196,040* 28. LA Lakers: Tony Bradley (UTA) Power Forward / 6-11 / North Carolina / Freshman 7.0 ppg, 5.1 rpg A big man with freakish wingspan and all-around game that needs work. Twitter: Salary: $1,188,840* 29. San Antonio: Derrick White Shooting Guard / 6-5 / Colorado / Senior 18.0 ppg, 4.0 rpg Very skilled player on the offensive end. Another steal for the Spurs? Twitter: Salary: $1,180,080* 30. Utah: Josh Hart (LAL) Shooting Guard / 6-5 / Villanova / Senior 18.6 ppg, 6.4 rpg Projects as a 3-and-D type of player in the NBA. Shot terrific percentages for a two guard in college.
