2036 Mock Lotto
Welcome to the 2036 KVBLDraft.net mock draft! Up to date coverage for the big day!
1. Denver Nuggets - Alan Barber (19, PF/C) 6'11, 231 lbs, Portland State
The Nuggets already have some young or youngish big men (Lyle Robideaux, Llewelyn Moss, Leonard White, Jacob Franks) but Alan Barber looks like the best prospect in the draft. A 19 year old three point bomber who lead the nation in scoring last year would conceptually pair nicely with last year's #3 pick Corbin Paxton and former #6 overall pick Lyle Robideaux. The near total lack of depth elsewhere on the roster seems like the only way Barber won't go in the top spot.
2. Charlotte Hornets - Robin Falwell (19, PF/SF), 6'8, 229 lbs, Kentucky
The Hornets look like they have their big building block for the future already in sensational 25 year old big man Hou Zihao, plus a couple up and coming prospects in sweet scoring big man Gerald Zampa and last year's #11 pick Kris Kevins. We think they will take a flyer on a guy with nearly unlimited potential in Robin Falwell, the athletic freak who is still waiting for his game to mature to follow along.
3. Houston Rockets - ZaRon Daniels (19, 6'10), PF/SF, 219 lbs, Duke
The Rockets think they got their point guard of the future in Zisis Zagorakis, but most of the younger players on the team are severely lacking in production. We're thinking they will skip on the more established lower ceiling players and try to hit a home run, hoping the highly touted ZaRon Daniels will work his way into being a number one option who plays well with Zags.
4. Phoenix Suns - Eddy Garza (21, SG/SF), 6'6, 205 lbs, Georgia
By all accounts the Suns seem to be enamored with their young big man duo of Grantas Masiulas and Doc Sportello, and are looking to bring another young prospect to the desert. There are a few players deserving of the pick, but as a team that already has some established veterans around we don't think the Suns will shy away from bringing in one of the upper classmen. A two way guy like Eddy Garza doesn't seem like a bad bet.
5. Memphis Grizzlies (via New Jersey) - Phil Armando (19, 6'10), SF/PF/C, 219 lbs, Iowa State
The Grizzlies seem to be pulled a couple directions by their current list of players, but most of their youth movement seems to be focused on the guard positions. Because of the amount of slots they are looking to fill and we think they will probably go with the versatile young kid Phil Armando out of Iowa State, he can do a little bit of everything and they really need a little bit of everything.
6. Los Angeles Lakers - Henry Kowalski (22, PG/SG), 6'3, 202 lbs, North Carolina
The Lakers are nearly always banking on free agency but they definitely have some established guys in town already with Khalib Teixera, Teddy Cook, Jaylen Willis, and Marty Hutchins. With all this established talent and the allure of Hollywood, we feel a little weird predicting that they take the most boring college player we can remember ever scouting. He's the best player out there at 6 and we think they will be happy to take him.
7. New York Knicks - PG  21;ukasz Gruszecki (Arka Gdynia/Poland)
The Knicks are heading into a big free agency with the looming prospect of losing Brick Markoja, leaving the roster barren past Malik Xavier and the promising young big man Patrick Danville. The promising international point guard from Poland seems like the guy who has the most potential upside of the international guys who are out there, and his game would seem to fit in with their existing players.
8. Denver Nuggets (via Memphis) - Berkeley Selby (20, SF/SG), 6'7, 211 lbs, Wisconsin
After taking Barber with the first pick the Nuggets have another pick coming through to help their rebuild. A good all around wing with room to grow would seem to help that objective and Berkeley Selby seems like the kind of guy who would fit.
9. Las Vegas Timberwolves - SG/SF Mattias Fransson (Uppsala Basket/Sweden)
The Wolves have their shelves stocked to the gills with young bigs between Mitch Bradley, Luther Johnson, and Brian Bedlam. We think they will move to shore up their defense elsewhere with the promising international prospect from Sweden Mattias Fransson.
10. Sacramento Kings (via Miami via Portland) - Carl Borg (21, PG/SG), 6'4, 194 lbs, Duke
Despite overtures from the front office it's looking like the Kings are going to be the team holding this pick come draft time. Possessing one of the premier duos of young players in the league between Samael Devine and Theodore Joadson, not to mention young productive players like Charles Traughber, Sam Baker, and Dirk Sullivan, it seems like the Kings will mostly be looking to get a guy who can contribute on the same timeline as these guys. Merlin Prince seems to be the "odd man out" on this timeline, so it seems very possible they end up with the best point guard left on the board, Cal Borg.
