2017 NBA Mock Draft (Version 1.0)

The NBA draft will take place on June 22 and we will do our best to predict where everyone will get selected. Some websites do their mock drafts based on “best player available” but we try to focus on team needs: for example, if a team like Phoenix already has Devin Booker at the 2-spot, then they are probably not selecting an SG with the #4 overall pick. So, please see our 1st round predictions below and then let us know in the comments section what looks good and what might need a re-pick.
