Chad's 2014 Mock Draft
1. Kings - Amir Jones PG/SG
The Kings are in desperate need of a point guard and the addition of Amir Jones should help immediately. While he’s not likely to be the next Terry Jackson in terms of having the all-around game, Amir Jones has been drawing comparisons to Rajon Rondo from many FRSL scouts with both players priding themselves on their defensive prowess & play making abilities. Look for Jones to start immediately next year for the Kings
2. Clippers – Jacky Biber SF/SG/PF
While the Clippers missed out on the number one pick and most likely Amir Jones, they are prepared to go with their backup option which will most likely be small forward Jacky Biber. He has the ability to step in right away for the Clippers and be one of their main scorers next season. Biber should also be able contribute on the boards as he is an above average rebounder for a small forward.
3. Hawks – Steve Andrews PF/C
While PG is biggest need for the Hawks after a disappointing season from Jason Kidd, the Hawks are most likely to go with Steve Andrews at number #3. FRSL scouts have raved about his inside game and project him to be a future all-star down the line. With the addition of Andrews, the Hawks should be a playoff team next year.
4. Wolves - Oudry Kisamba C
With a solid backcourt that features Ricky Rubio & Bradley Beal, the Wolves are most likely to go with a big man at #4. Oudry Kisamba, is believed to be the top international player in this year’s draft and while it’s sometimes hard to project how international players will perform in the FRSL, the center out of Congo is a beast defensively and will surprise you with his offensive game also.
5. Pacers - Martin Sharp PF/C
The Pacers have back-to-back picks in the lottery and are most likely to address their frontcourt with at least one of the picks. The PF out of UCLA is said to be the best defensive power forward in the draft which should definitely help the Pacers who allowed over 110ppg. Martin Sharp will also help the Pacers tremendously on the boards and will fight for some major minutes next year.
6. Pacers - Joey Nix PF/SF
With the ability to both knock down 3’s and score inside, Joey Nix has a solid all-around offensive game. Depending on what happens with Carmelo Anthony this off-season, the Pacers could use a forward that can be a reliable scorer for them. Nix is also an above-average passer for a forward which is another area that the Pacers could use some help in considering they have the shoot first PG Russell Westbrook running the helm.
7. Bullets - Alex Abrines SG/PG
Alex Abrines has been lighting it up overseas since he was a teenager. Considered to be one of the best offensive players in Europe, the shooting guard out of Spain should be a solid pick for the Bullets at number 7. Look for Alex Abrines to get some decent minutes next year off the bench for the Bullets backing up Aaron Harrison & Raymond Felton.
8. Wolves - Tommy Lister PF
While Tommy Lister does not have that one stand-out quality, he possesses an above average post game on both the offensive & defensive end and is a solid rebounder. With the addition of Kisamba already at #4, the Wolves will have added two solid big men to add to the mix next year and going forward.
9. Thunder- Dan Hershey PG
With the 9th pick in this year draft, look for the Thunder to address one of their main weaknesses which is at the point. Dan Hershey is one of the best outside shooters in this year’s draft and should definitely be able to contribute right away on the offensive end for the Thunder. The point guard out of Stanford has decent handle also and would most likely be drafted even higher if it wasn’t for his lack of defense.
10. Warriors - Mike Swift SF/SG
With tremendous athletic abilities, Mike Swift is a great leaper who lives to make the highlight plays. He’s also an above-average defender who has good length. Should be a nice pick for the Warriors at #10 and eventual replacement for AK47.
11. Bucks - Linos Chrysikopoulos SG/SF/PF
Just missing out on the playoffs this year, the Bucks will be right back in the hunt next year and with the Greek sensation possibly coming off the bench for Iggy & Brandon Jennings, this team should make some noise next season.
12. Pistons - Neal Lewis PG
With Lebron James running the point, the Pistons just barely missed out on the playoffs this year. Brining in a true PG should help lighten the load for LBJ next season and help get the Pistons going in the right direction.
