NBA Mock Draft
The best player in the draft and arguably only potential superstar of this mediocre class. It's only a matter of time before he makes Gilbert Arenas obsolete.
You never know what GM David Kahn has up his sleeve, such as trading Kevin Love. Drafting Favors allows that.
The enigmatic Cousins comes with a lot of red flags because of his attitude, but his size and great potential is alluring and hard to pass up.
Nellieball calls for bigs to be able to rebound, outlet, make smart passes and face up to the basket and Monroe has the high basketball IQ to fit.
So much potential, but still has a ways to go to reach it. This troubled franchise might not be the best place for him to go, but they can't pass on him here.
8. Los Angeles Clippers - Al-Farouq Aminu, SF (Wake Forest)
10. Indiana Pacers - Ekpe Udoh, PF/C (Baylor)
Active, athletic big with a ridiculous wingspan (7-5) who, with workaholic Tyler Hansbrough, could soon make the Pacers a hard team to handle in the paint.
Efficient, smart and versatile big man who is willing to be part of a team-concept and gives Hornets needed size and athleticism.
The Grizz are likely to lose Rudy Gay via free agency and need a versatile wingman to take his place, though they're very different players.
Raptors are trying to move Jarrett Jack before the draft and will need a backup point guard who can defend and score.
Hamstring injury impacted workouts, but this high-flyer has the most upside of anyone left on the board and that's what Houston is looking for.
