I did a mock draft for the NFL earlier this year and did considerably better than I thought I would. So I thought, why not give the NBA Draft a shot? 

I know there are usually a ton of trades in the first round, but that won’t affect this mock draft. I’m selecting players in the order I would pick them, while taking into consideration what the specific NBA team might need on their roster.

Well, here goes nothing!
