    1. Milwaukee – Joel Embiid (Fr.)

    Andrew Bynum/Hakeem Olajuwon hybrid

    With an ability to score in variety of ways and good passing ability he would be a great addition to any team.

    2. Utah – Jabari Parker (Fr.)

    Carmelo Anthony/Grant Hill hybrid


    High basketball IQ, good size and speed, and a pure shooter with lots of potential; Parker is arguably a candidate to go as the number one overall pick.

    3. Orlando – Andrew Wiggins (Fr.)

    Dominique Wilkins/Tracy McGrady/Paul George hybrid

    Described as “freakishly gifted” this 6’8” small forward has great shooting ability along the perimeter, great shot mechanics, is good at creating separation off the dribble and has good passing instincts.

    4. Philadelphia – Marcus Smart (So.)

    James Harden/Dwyane Wade hybrid

    A natural playmaker, this point guard has textbook shooting form, is a leader on the court, an unselfish passer and has all around advanced skills.

    5. Sacramento – Julius Randle (Fr.)

    Lamar Odom/Zach Randolph/ Larry Johnson hybrid

    An excellent finisher around the basket, but able to put shots up from the college 3 point range, a very high skilled player.

    6. Denver – Zach LaVine (Fr.)

    Russell Westbrook



    With amazing leaping ability LaVine is not your average point guard. He’s strong, quick and good in transition. Defensively he’s also an asset with quick hands.

    7. Atlanta – Dante Exum (Intl.)

    Penny Hardaway/Michael Carter-Williams hybrid

    Often considered the fastest guy on the court, he’s a good and willing passer with good finishing ability and the ability to score in a variety of ways.

    8. Chicago – Jerami Grant (So.)

    Thaddeus Young

    With a 7’2” wingspan he has a combination of size and length to overpower smaller forwards. He’s got great shot blocking ability, can guard multiple positions, and a good offensive rebounder with good shooting ability.

    9. Memphis – Noah Vonleh (Fr.)

    Chris Bosh/Harrison Barnes hybrid



    Described as a ‘clutch’ player, Vonleh has high upset with some quality offensive moves and a size and frame that will make him a very powerful player.

    10. Philadelphia – Gary Harris (So.)

    OJ Mayo/Shannon Brown hybrid

    An extremely polished and well rounded player, he’s a very versatile offensively. He is a good shot creator, excellent in transition with good speed and burst, and a deadly 3-point shooter.
