Hunerman's 2015 Mock Draft V.1
So here is a little mock draft I threw together. Let me know of any mistakes I made. It’s 3 AM and I just got back from a party, so there will be a mistake!
I did this mock with the current lottery standings, I may add in the playoff teams in the next version. I also left out all Euros in this mock. I will do a version 2 after the lottery, and possibly with Euros. I will finally do a version 3 near the draft,, using my actual scouting to make these mocks.
Have fun, and enjoy!
#1 Nets (4-57)
Brad Onassis 21, 6'8" North Carolina, SG/SF
With no point guard in site, the Nets look for a star wing who still has some handles. The other reason why the Nets take this pick, defense. Another possibility is Tejay Evans, even though they still have Sullinger.
#2 Bulls (11-46)
Tejay Evans 20, 6'7" UVLV PF/SF
The Bulls may even trade up here. If they get lucky, their guy Tejay falls to #2. Evans can come in and be a huge impact for the Bulls. There might be a Euro here if the Bulls like to take a gamble. This should be a lock if Evans falls to two.
#3 Nuggets (17-38)
M.J Cooper 6'6", 20 Syracuse, PG/SG/SF
The Nuggets may be the most talented team to have this bad of a record. We will blame this on the injuries. However, these injuries showed the true lack of depth at some positions. The Nuggets would be smart and take Cooper who will be able to play many positions, especially PG.
#4 Pacers (17-36)
Darnell Cox 6’11”, 22 Georgia, C/PF
The Pacers go with Cox at this pick. They will pair up current rookie Steve Andrews, who is offensive minded, with Cox, who is defensive minded. This pairing goes together like Chocolate and Peanut Butter!
#5 Bullets (22-40)
George Leary 6’9”, 20 Arizona, PF/SF
The Bullets can go a number of different ways here. They might want to get some more depth in the post, or maybe some more weapons on this wing. A Euro might be a possibility here too!
#6 Suns (19-34)
Andrew Nicholson PF/C
The Suns might be secure with Isaiah Austin and Julius Randle, but I have a feeling they are still searching for their rock to build around in the post.
#7 Thunder (20-35)
LaDominic Washington 6’3”, 19 Kentucky, PG/SG
Washington just sounds like a Kentucky player. Sounds like huge upside. The Thunder have the ability to give Washington a few years to grow behind Brooks and Lawson. I just hope they do not bust so much with this pick as they did with Justin Bieber, I mean Jacky Biber…
#8 Nets (From Mavs) (20-35)
Stacey Jackson 20, 6’5” UConn SG/SF
The Nets need to go with the best player available here. I think they wish that Washington fell to them at 8, but I think they will not be disappointed with this pick. They will still need to find a PG in Free Agency, but I they find one there, they could take some serious steps forward.
#9 Bulls (From Celtics) (22-36)
Trevor Downs 20, 6’7” UCLA, SF/SG/PF
This is the Bulls second pick. They went with a PF/SF earlier, so now might be interested in a wing. Trevor Downs is a great versatile defensive player. The Bulls need defense. Downs also can play multiple positions that give the team some different options.
#10 Hornets (24-37)
Andrew Wiggins SF/SG
Personally, I see the Hornets going Euro right here. However, if not, I see them taking the hyped Andrew Wiggins. Once named “the top 13 year old” in the basketball world. Will he live up to the hype? OR will he be a large disappointment to the nation?
#11 Warriors (26-31)
Andrew Weiss 6’5”, 21 Miami, PG/SG
Is Dan Hershey really the answer at PG? I think the Warriors take another gamble here and take the assist machine in Weiss. His mom once called him the “new Kendall Marshall, but without the fake injuries.” Good size, however poor effort on defense has him fall in the draft.
#12 Bucks (27-30)
Ames Pollard SG/SF
Where to go with this pick... the may Bucks trade up/down here? Draft a Euro (2 taken last year by the Bucks)? Personally, I say Euro, but if they decide to stock up on SF’s an SG’s, then they have a few options. I believe that Ames Pollard may be the best available here at 12.

Re: Hunerman's 2015 Mock Draft V.1
Also, who will be making the picks is key too.
To save you some time in the future, here's what the 11th spot should have said:
"The idiot who is in this spot will probably screw it up."
Mom, thanks for everything.
RIP Coach Rick Majerus 12/1/12. You were the one that said it was OK to think big at SLU. You were right.
