| 2014 NBA Mock Draft

NBA Mock DraftThe InsideHoops.com NBA Mock Draft is a professional look at the what the big annual NBA selection process is expected to look like. Since 1998, InsideHoops.com's NBA mock draft has been one of the web's top go-to looks at who the top prospects are and where they may be selected. We talk to NBA decision-makers (general managers, their assistants, scouts, etc) to sort out a consensus. The top picks for our 2014 NBA mock draft are up, with the rest of the first round coming soon.

We are listing these teams in reverse order of their current winning percentage (as of January 11, 2014). We are not factoring in which teams swapped first round draft picks yet. No reason to worry about that at this time.

----------

FINAL 2011 NBA Mock Draft

1) Cleveland Cavaliers (from LAC): Kyrie Irving (PG, Duke) - Every rebuilding team needs a real floor general. Probably the best prospect in the 2011 Draft.

2) Minnesota Timberwolves: Derrick Williams (F, Arizona) - Extremely versatile scorer and rebounder who insists he'll be an NBA small forward. Very athletic, talented and may be worthy of going no.1 overall.

3) Utah Jazz (from NJ): Enes Kanter (F/C, Turkey) - A high-IQ scorer and rebounder. Impressed in the NBA Combine. Can score in more than one way, and appears to have moves. His knees may be a concern. Very strong.

4) Cleveland Cavaliers: Jonas Valanciunas (PF, Lithuania) - A raw project who is still in development. People believe in his potential. Buyout issues are a concern.

5) Toronto Raptors: Brandon Knight (PG, Kentucky) - A scoring guard who can penetrate, has quickness, still developing his passing and pure point guard skills. Fast.

6) Washington Wizards: Kawhi Leonard (SF, San Diego State) - Strong rebounder with fire, energy, defensive skills and a still-developing offense. An aggressive, gritty competitor.

7) Sacramento Kings: Jimmer Fredette (PG, Brigham Young) - Scores in a big way. Needs to improve defense. Will be an NBA point guard who can score, not a shooting guard.

8) Detroit Pistons: Marcus Morris (F, Kansas) - Can score inside, versatile offensive player, can rebound, hits from outside if wide open, tweener in NBA.

9) Charlotte Bobcats: Tristan Thompson (PF, Texas) - Energetic big forward who moves well without the ball and is always looking to make something happen. Defends well. Has limited offensive development. Bricks free throws in scary fashion.

10) Milwaukee Bucks: Klay Thompson (SG, Washington State) - A scoring guard who needs to improve his ball-handling. Nails shots in a big way. Huge game from the perimeter. Needs to improve overall athletic ability.

11) Golden State Warriors: Alec Burks (SG, Colorado) - A scorer with limited range who rebounds well for his size. Athletic guy who should add physical strength. Needs to improve outside shot and defense.

12) Utah Jazz: Kemba Walker (PG, Connecticut) - A good guard prospect with decent NBA potential. Small size an issue. Extremely quick. Tough to say how his NBA defense will be.

13) Phoenix Suns: Jan Vesely (F, Czech Republic) - Tall, lanky forward who moves well, is versatile and improving. Loves to dunk. Tough to say that he's great at anything in particular just yet. Very athletic. Still developing an offense. Can't shoot. Fun personality.

14) Houston Rockets: Chris Singleton (F, Florida State) - A defensive-minded player with limited offensive ability. Might be the best perimeter defender in this year's draft.

15) Indiana Pacers: Bismack Biyombo (PF, Congo) - Inside player who block shots, rebounds and draws fouls. A lot is still unknown about how refined his game is when facing great competition. Lousy hands. Limited offensive skills.

16) Philadelphia 76ers: Jordan Hamilton (SF, Texas) - A scorer who rebounds well but forces some shots and needs to improving awareness

17: New York Knicks: Marshon Brooks (SG, Providence) - Hits buckets. Produces points in a big way. Huge wingspan and very big hands for a guard.

18: Washington Wizards (from Atl): Markieff Morris (PF, Kansas) - A rebounder who tries to only take good shots and is getting better offensively

19: Charlotte Bobcats (from NO via Por): Donatas Motiejunas (PF, Lithuania) - Skinny, nice shooting range, scores from everywhere. Appears to have real offensive moves. Toughness in question. Can shoot.

20: Minnesota Timberwolves (from Mem via Utah): Nikola Vucevic (C, Montenegro) - Huge center who scores and rebounds.

21: Portland Trail Blazers: Iman Shumpert (G, Georgia Tech) - A rebounding, very defensive guard with limited shooting ability and a lousy outside shot who steals the ball like crazy. Extremely athletic.

22: Denver Nuggets: Kenneth Faried (PF, Morehead State) - Scored, rebounded and blocked shots against weak college competition. Grabs boards like crazy.

23: Houston Rockets (from Orl via Pho): Kyle Singler (F, Duke) - A shooter who shoots, shoots, and can shoot. He also sometimes rebounds.

24: Oklahoma City Thunder: Justin Harper (F, Richmond) - A scorer and rebounder who improved pretty much every college season he played. Nice range for a big forward.

25: Boston Celtics: Tobias Harris (PF, Tennessee) - Scores, rebounds, needs to improve shooting range. Versatile player. Should do conditioning work.

26: Dallas Mavericks: Jeremy Tyler (PF/C, San Diego/International) - Dropped out of high school to get questionable pro experience, but gained physical toughness and probably some emotional maturity out of the experience. Big, athletic and strong, but raw.

27: New Jersey Nets (from LAL): Reggie Jackson (G, Boston College) - A solid guard whose shooting ability took a huge leap forward last season.

28: Chicago Bulls (from Mia via Tor): Shelvin Mack (G, Butler) - Sturdy combo guard who is pretty solid at just about everything. Certainly been a winner in college.

29: San Antonio Spurs: Tyler Honeycutt (SF, UCLA) - A defensive-minded swingman

30: Chicago Bulls: Nolan Smith (PG, Duke) - A small-frame point guard who is a pretty solid player and would fit nicely as a backup.

FINAL 2009 NBA MOCK DRAFT

1) Los Angeles Clippers: Blake Griffin, PF/C, 6-10, 250, Oklahoma, Sophomore, 22.7 ppg, 14.4 rpg, 2.3 apg, 1.2 bpg, 65.4% FG. Stands out as by far the most NBA-ready player in the 2009 NBA Draft. Not a guaranteed NBA star, but at worst should be an extremely solid rotation player and quickly have an NBA impact. Big-time rebounder, and an inside scorer. Must continue to develop a more reliable mid-range shot.

2) Memphis Grizzlies: Hasheem Thabeet, C, 7-3, 265, Connecticut, Junior, 13.6 ppg, 10.8 rpg, 0.5 apg, 4.2 bpg, 64.0% FG. A shot-blocking defender who adds size but not much offensive refinement. Limited basketball experience. Not a real impact player (yet?) but the only true center worthy of going higher than mid first round.

3) Oklahoma City: James Harden, SG, 6-5, 220, Arizona State, Sophomore, 20.1 ppg, 5.6 rpg, 4.2 apg, 1.7 spg, 48.9% FG, 35.6% 3FG. A bulldozer of a shooting guard who reminds some of Paul Pierce. A scorer, not a pure shooter.

4) Sacramento Kings: Ricky Rubio, PG, 6-4, 180, International. Flashy, young point guard with great passing skills who is still developing but age-wise has been dominant for years. Still improving his shot. Everyone like to compare him to Pistol Pete Maravich. We can go along with that.

5) Minnesota Timberwolves: Stephen Curry, G, 6-3, 185, Davidson, Junior, 28.6 ppg, 4.4 rpg, 5.6 apg, 45.4% FG, 38.7% 3FG. A scoring phenom who can shoot the lights out and create mountains of points. A scoring guard who isn't a pure point but can create and make things happen for others.

6) Minnesota Timberwolves: Tyreke Evans, SG, 6-6, 220, Memphis, Freshman, 17.1 ppg, 5.4 rpg, 3.9 apg, 2.1 spg, 45.5% FG, 27.4% 3FG. Combo guard best suited to play the two. Physically strong. Versatile scorer. Good draft workouts.

7) Golden State Warriors: Jordan Hill, PF, 6-10, 235, Arizona, Junior, 18.3 ppg, 11.0 rpg, 1.5 apg, 1.7 bpg, 53.7% FG. Athletic forward but not a great defender.

8) New York Knicks: Jonny Flynn, PG, 6-0, 185, Syracuse, Sophomore, 17.4 ppg, 2.7 rpg, 6.7 apg, 1.4 spg, 46.0% FG, 31.7% 3FG. A short but talented, very quick point guard and one of the most athletic players in the draft.

9) Toronto Raptors: Demar DeRozan, G/F, 6-7, 220, USC, Freshman, 13.9 ppg, 5.7 rpg, 1.5 apg, 0.9 spg, 52.3% FG, 16.7% 3FG. Super athlete who is still developing actual basketball skills.

10) Milwaukee Bucks: Brandon Jennings, PG, 6-1, 170, International. A flashy, highlight-reel of a point guard, very good on fast break and in open court.

11) New Jersey Nets: Terrence Williams, SF, 6-6, 220, Louisville, Senior, 12.5 ppg, 8.6 rpg, 5.0 apg, 2.3 spg, 43.1% FG, 38.5% 3FG. Williams defends just as well as he rebounds and passes. Can impact a team positively without putting up a lot of points.

12) Charlotte Bobcats: Gerald Henderson, SG, 6-4, 215, Duke, Junior, 16.5 ppg, 4.9 rpg, 2.5 apg, 1.2 spg, 45.0% FG, 33.6% 3FG. A versatile, strong, quick, multi-talented guard who is as good defensively as offensively, but must keep improving outside shot.

13) Indiana Pacers: DeJuan Blair, PF, 6-7, 265, Pittsburgh, Sophomore, 15.7 ppg, 12.3 rpg, 1.2 apg, 1.5 spg, 1.0 bpg, 59.3% FG. A rugged, bruising, short but long-armed power forward.

14) Phoenix Suns: Tyler Hansbrough, PF, 6-9, 250, North Carolina, Senior, 20.7 ppg, 8.1 rpg, 1.0 apg, 1.2 spg, 0.4 bpg, 51.4% FG, 39.1% 3FG. One of the best college basketball players in many years, Hansbrough is a winner and should help any NBA team's frontcourt. Not explosive athletically but extremely intense.

15) Detroit Pistons: James Johnson, F, 6-8, 240, Wake Forest, Sophomore, 15.0 ppg, 8.5 rpg, 2.0 apg, 1.4 spg, 1.5 bpg, 54.2% FG, 31.9% 3FG. A tweener who is probably best suited as an NBA small forward.

16) Chicago Bulls: B.J. Mullens, C, 7-0, 275, Ohio State, Freshman, 8.8 ppg, 4.7 rpg, 0.3 apg, 1.1 bpg, 63.8% FG. Insane athletic ability for a big guy but still very raw on both ends of the floor and as of now is best used as a backup, not a starter.

17) Philadelphia 76ers: Jrue Holiday, G, 6-3, 180, UCLA, Freshman, 8.5 ppg, 3.8 rpg, 3.7 apg, 1.6 spg, 45.0% FG, 30.7% 3FG. Didn't have a great freshman year in college, but is coming out because NBA scouts like his upside. A combo guard who still has a lot of improving to do.

18) Minnesota Timberwolves: Earl Clark, F, 6-9, 225, Louisville, Junior, 14.2 ppg, 8.7 rpg, 3.2 apg, 1.4 bpg, 45.7% FG, 32.6% 3FG. A versatile, passing, finesse, tweener, point-forward.

19) Atlanta Hawks: Ty Lawson, PG, 5-11, 195, North Carolina, Junior, 16.6 ppg, 3.0 rpg, 6.6 apg, 2.1 spg, 53.2% FG, 47.2% 3FG. Short but strong, smart point guard who at worst should be a very good backup, but unsure if he'll be worthy of starting on an NBA team, initially, at least.

20) Utah Jazz: Sam Young, SF, 6-6, 220, Pittsburgh, Senior, 19.2 ppg, 6.3 rpg, 1.1 apg, 1.0 spg, 50.2% FG, 37.2% 3FG. Unusual player that reminds some of Josh Howard in that he seems good at just about everything but not great at any one thing. But a real baller. He's already 24, though. So how big is his upside? Hustles hard.

21) New Orleans Hornets: Jeff Teague, PG, 6-2, 180, Wake Forest, Sophomore, 18.8 ppg, 3.3 rpg, 3.5 apg, 1.9 spg, 48.5% FG, 44.1% 3FG. Defenders find it extremely hard to stay in front of him, but still developing NBA-level skills. Must improve ball control. More of a combo guard than a pure point.

22) Dallas Mavericks: Austin Daye, F, 6-11, 205, Gonzaga, Sophomore, 12.7 ppg, 6.8 rpg, 1.1 apg, 2.1 bpg, 47.7% FG, 42.9% 3FG. Has to spend years adding muscle, but initially he'll be able to come off a bench and make open jumpshots.

23) Sacramento Kings: Eric Maynor, PG, 6-3, 175, VCU, Senior, 22.4 ppg, 3.6 rpg, 6.2 apg, 1.7 spg, 46.3% FG, 36.1% 3FG. An extremely experienced, smart point guard who knows the game but isn't especially blessed as an athlete.

24) Portland Trail Blazers: Marcus Thornton, SG, 6-4, 205, LSU, Senior, 21.1 ppg, 5.5 rpg, 2.1 apg, 1.6 spg, 47.2% FG, 38.8% 3FG.

25) Oklahoma City Thunder: Chase Budinger, SF, 6-7, 220, Arizona, Junior, 18.0 ppg, 6.2 rpg, 3.4 apg, 1.4 spg, 48.0% FG, 39.9% 3FG. Volleyball background helped the versatile, athletic, underrated Budinger develop into a player that should help most teams' rotations.

26) Chicago Bulls: Omri Casspi, F, 6-8, 220, Israel. Versatile forward who gets at the rim but needs to keep improving his shooting ability and must get stronger.

27) Memphis Grizzlies: Wayne Ellington, SG, 6-4, 200, North Carolina, Junior, 15.8 ppg, 4.9 rpg, 2.7 apg, 0.9 spg, 48.3% FG, 41.7% 3FG. Pretty good at most things but tough to say how strong an impact he'll have early on.

28) Minnesota Timberwolves: Derrick Brown, F, 6-8, 230, Xavier, Junior, 13.7 ppg, 6.1 rpg, 1.9 apg, 0.9 bpg, 50.4% FG, 43.3% 3FG

29) New York Knicks: Darren Collison, PG, 6-0, 160, UCLA, Senior, 14.4 ppg, 2.4 rpg, 4.7 apg, 1.6 spg, 50.9% FG, 39.4% 3FG

30) Cleveland Cavaliers: Patrick Mills, PG, 6-0, 180, Saint Mary's, Sophomore, 18.4 ppg, 2.4 rpg, 3.9 apg, 2.2 spg, 40.2% FG, 33.8% 3FG

FINAL 2008 NBA MOCK DRAFT

FIRST ROUND MOCK DRAFT

1. Chicago: Derrick Rose (PG 6-4 195 Memphis)
Super athletic, strong, great point guard who can do it all, but must improve outside shot. Instant impact.

2. Miami: Michael Beasley (PF 6-9 230 Kansas State)
Super athletic versatile forward who can score in multiple ways and rebound like crazy. Instant impact.

3. Minnesota: O.J. Mayo (G 6-4 195 USC)
Tough combo guard who plays a confident game which makes him look like an instant impact player for parts of a game and a guy with flaws and a lot to learn in other stretches. Has shoot-first mentality.

4. Seattle: Brook Lopez (C 7-0 245 Stanford)
A smart, skilled, legit big man with nice legit scoring moves with strength. Takes up space nicely. Sonics also may want Jerryd Bayless. Trade with Clippers may occur, with those teams picking for each other.

5. Memphis: Kevin Love (PF/C 6-9 260 UCLA)
A multi-skilled strong, bruising power forward who can bang, score down low, and nail jumpers out to three-point range if his feet are set. Got into better shape since the season ended. Pretty regular athlete. Not as quick as the cat-like big men he'll sometimes have to face. May take Jerryd Bayless or Eric Gordon

6. New York: Danilo Gallinari (SF 6-9 210 Italy)
Very versatile small forward who can pretend to be a guard, pass, score, shoot, move without the ball, and do those good Euro-kind of things. But athletic ability is limited and that's his main issue right now. May take Russell Westbrook or another good guard if available. Will Knicks trade David Lee to Blazers?

7. LA Clippers: Russell Westbrook (PG 6-3 190 UCLA)
A combo guard who can probably be a legit NBA point guard. Pretty good at everything, but must prove he's developed and skilled enough to really help an NBA team. Can defend. Has impressed teams in workouts. NOTE: SONICS AND CLIPPPERS MAY MAKE TRADE HERE, PICKING FOR EACH OTHER

8. Milwaukee: Joe Alexander (F 6-8 230 West Virginia)
The highest-flying super-athlete in the Draft. Can leap like a lunatic, run, attack the rim, and dunk on multiple defenders without even trying.

9. Charlotte: Eric Gordon (SG 6-4 205 Indiana)
A short but thick, strong, aggressive shooting guard who can score like a master but is still improving other aspects of his game. May get Kevin Love if available

10. New Jersey: Anthony Randolph (F 6-11 215 LSU)
A lanky, offensively-versatile talent, big upside but hit or miss player, and we aren't sure exactly which forward spot he's going to wind up playing in a few years after he fills out a bit. Nets are making a trade, and this pick may not stay with them.

11. Indiana: Kosta Koufos (C 7-0 260 Ohio State)
A legit, big center who takes up space who is developing nicely.

12. Sacramento: Jerryd Bayless (PG 6-3 190 Arizona)
A big-time scorer, very quick, with explosive moves and a great jumper in the body of a point guard.

13. Portland: D.J. Augustin (PG 5-11 180 Texas)
A true point guard, passer, leader, but very undersized, who can also score quite easily.

14. Golden State: DeAndre Jordan (C 7-0 240 Texas A&M)
Very quick and athletic big guy who is extremely raw and has more developing to do than the majority of players on this first round list.

15. Phoenix (From Atl): Brandon Rush (SG 6-7 200 Kansas)
A shooting guard can can probably pretend to be a small forward for stretches. Smart, athletic, outside shooter.

16. Philadelphia: Marreese Speights (F/C 6-10 240 Florida)
A scoring and rebounding big man who is still developing on the defensive side of the floor.

17. Toronto: Donte Green (SF 6-8 215 Syracuse)
A shooter and scorer who loves shooting lots of outside shots. Still developing other aspects of his game.

18. Washington: Robin Lopez (C 7-0 255 Stanford)
An energetic, hustling big guy who can take up space and make some noise but isn't particularly skilled at much of anything.

19. Cleveland: Darrell Arthur (F 6-10 215 Kansas)
He can move, and score, handle the ball, but probaby destined to be a somewhat decent contributor off a bench.

20. Denver: Roy Hibbert (C 7-2 265 Georgetown)
A tall center. He's tall. Did we mention that he's tall. Hibbert has size, especially height. A smart, tall player.

21. New Jersey (from Dal): JaVale McGee (C 7-0 235 Nevada)
A tall dude who is still developing his basketball skills.

22. Orlando: Jason Thompson (F/C 6-11 250 Rider)

23. Utah: Alexis Ajinca (PF/C 7-1 240 France)
A Euro type center, meaning he can pass and understands basketball but needs to get stronger.

24. Seattle (from Pho): J.J. Hickson (PF 6-9 240 NC State)
A nice combo of strength, wingspan, quickness, and a lot of offensive moves.

25. Houston: Chris Douglas-Roberts (SG 6-7 200 Memphis)
Gets to the rim, scores, shoots and can defend. Some wonder if his upside is limited.

26. San Antonio: Nicolas Batum (SF 6-8 212 France)
A quick, leaping scorer with nice potential and very good defensive ability.

27. New Orleans: Mario Chalmers (PG 6-1 190 Kansas)
A defender, passer and shooter who can strengthen a team's bench.

28. Memphis (from LAL): Courtney Lee (G 6-5 200 Western Kentucky)
Would make a good backup.

29. Detroit: Nathan Jawai (C 6-10 270 Australia)
Athletic, quick guy with big wingspan who is still raw and learning to play basketball. He's like a more explosive Glen Davis, says an InsideHoops.com source in Australian basketball.

30. Boston: Omer Asik (F/C 6-11 230 Turkey)
