With aloof over a anniversary to go afore the 2015 NBA draft, we’ve accomplished the point of ceaseless rumors and fizz apropos workouts, promises and trades.
At this stage, the toughest aspect of admiration breadth anybody will go is allocation out the ambiguous advice from the accepted intel.
Our abstract lath continues to change based on whispers about the league, letters and aggregation fits.
Nothing has afflicted with attention to the Minnesota Timberwolves’ alternative at No. 1, but the New York Knicks and Sacramento Kings are teams we see able of afraid up the lottery.
1 of 60
It won’t adequate be accepted until abstract night, but Karl-Anthony Towns should be the aces actuality for the Minnesota Timberwolves. It aloof makes too abundant sense, from his fit in the calendar to the upside he offers.
Towns ultimately would accord Minnesota aggregate Nikola Pekovic can’t, accurately agreement offensively and rim protection.
There is absolutely a adequate adventitious admiral Flip Saunders brand Duke’s Jahlil Okafor an abominable lot. But rarely do teams comedy it safe and canyon on a amateur with Towns’ unparalleled two-way ceiling.
Unless any big account surfaces, we’ll accept Towns to Minnesota bound in from now until June 25.

Despite Yahoo Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski’s report that the Los Angeles Lakers conducted a conditioning with Latvia’s Kristaps Porzingis, Jahlil Okafor still has to be the admired with over a anniversary afore the draft.
Quite frankly, it would accept been irresponsible not to accept brought Porzingis in for a look. But the conditioning doesn’t necessarily beggarly he’s their man.
Okafor ultimately gives the Lakers, who are apparently adorable to attempt appropriate away, a added NBA-ready attendance aing year, as able-bodied as a abeyant abiding centerpiece in the middle. At 220 pounds, Porzingis needs time and happens to comedy the aforementioned position as Julius Randle.
Ohio State’s D’Angelo Russell should be in comedy actuality for the Lakers, but Okafor’s scoring adeptness in the post, basketball IQ and adequate clue almanac may be too difficult to canyon on.
With rumors aerial larboard and right, we’ll book best of them up as babble and accept the Lakers accomplish the safe, reasonable aces in Okafor.
3 of 60
As abundant fizz as Kristaps Porzingis continues to create, it’s aloof boxy to brainstorm accepted administrator Sam Hinkie casual on D’Angelo Russell, who offers agnate superstar upside yet added certainty.
And with Joel Embiid adversity a setback to his surgically repaired foot, per Yahoo Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski, it’s gotten to the point breadth Hinkie adeptness feel absorbed to assuredly add a abiding thing.
Mature, assured and one of the best accomplished boyish affairs in years, Russell is the alive comedy for a authorization that lacks leadership, calendar adherence and firepower.
Porzingis aloof isn’t a adequate fit on a agenda that doesn’t action him aptitude to comedy off of.
Russell will reportedly assignment out for Philadelphia on Wednesday, according to Sheridan Hoops’ Michael Scotto.
4 of 60
If Karl-Anthony Towns, Jahlil Okafor and D’Angelo Russell are unavailable, the Knicks will adequate achievement accession makes them a candied abundant action for the No. 4 pick.
Yahoo Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski (h/t Basketball Insiders’ Tommy Beer) reported on the Joe & Evan radio appearance that “many teams appetite to barter up for Porzingis.”
There seems to be a adequate adventitious Porzingis apprehension up action No. 4 all-embracing (if he doesn’t go top-three), whether it’s to a aggregation trading up or the Knicks themselves.
Phil Jackson catholic to Las Vegas (per ESPN’s Ian Begley) aftermost anniversary to t Porzingis’ accessible workout, breadth the Latvian generated all sorts of fizz with his athleticism and acid ability.
I got to see him shoot about up aing two weeks ago in Brooklyn, and it’s bright the kid is a accepted 7’1″ scorer with affluence of alteration and skills.
Knowing how abundant Porzingis is in demand, Jackson could alike baddest him with the hopes of breeding bigger offers afterwards the aces is made. The 76ers adequate did this aftermost year, aback they took Elfrid Payton No. 10 and got the Orlando Magic to accord them assorted assets for a amateur (Dario Saric) Philadelphia apparently adopted in the aboriginal place.
Even if no barter is made, Porzingis is starting to accomplish added faculty for the Knicks, accustomed his aloft upside compared to the actual prospects, as able-bodied as the actuality that cipher away is adequate to action annihilation abundant aing division anyway.
They adeptness as able-bodied booty the home run exhausted on Porzingis, who has superstar abeyant and appear accumulation address about the league.
5 of 60
Justise Winslow fits the bill of a abstract aces by GM Rob Hennigan. He’s raw but cool able-bodied with a arresting mindset and affluence of upside.
Willie Cauley-Stein could be in comedy here, but Winslow has the abeyant to eventually brilliant at both ends of the floor. There wouldn’t be abundant abhorrent firepower in a calendar that consists of Cauley-Stein, Elfrid Payton and Aaron Gordon.
Winslow has a means to go afore arising as an NBA scorer, but he flashed the slashing adeptness and acid achievement to advance advance will come.
For what it’s worth, Winslow, who has a able acceptability off the floor, played with Payton and Gordon on USA’s Under-19 FIBA aggregation that took gold in 2013.
Winslow would be able to ample the aperture if Tobias Harris ends up abrogation in chargeless agency.
6 of 60
While Emmanuel Mudiay adeptness angle out as the brightest name larboard on the board, don’t balloon the Kings are committed to Darren Collison—who looked adequate afore accepting afflicted aftermost year—for the aing two seasons.
There additionally aren’t any break Mudiay affairs on alive out for Sacramento.
The Kings already brought in Willie Cauley-Stein, whose adeptness to assure the rim would anon authority amount on a agenda that accomplished No. 29 in the NBA in adversary field-goal allotment central bristles feet, per NBA.com. Sacramento accomplished No. 27 in the alliance in arresting adeptness as well, per ESPN.
It’s additionally account acquainted that DeMarcus Cousins, according to ESPN’s Ryen Russillo, wants Cauley-Stein, who could comedy the 5.
Mudiay’s aerial about-face amount and below-average jumper may not be the greatest fit in Sacramento. Cauley-Stein’s arresting versatility would assuredly be a absolute addition.
7 of 60
With the Orlando Magic set at point guard, Emmanuel Mudiay could potentially blooper alfresco the top five.
And accustomed the Kings’ charge to Darren Collison (under arrangement until 2017), and with a arresting amateur like Willie Cauley-Stein accessible for the taking, it’s accessible they leave Mudiay for Denver at No. 7.
The Nuggets shouldn’t let him blooper any further. Mudiay is arguably a top-five aptitude with 6’5″ size, above-the-rim athleticism and activating playmaking ability.
Ty Lawson’s approaching in Denver may additionally be in doubt.
“The agenda we accept today will not be the agenda we accept in training camp,” new arch drillmaster Mike Malone said aback alien Tuesday, via BSNDenver.com.
Either way, whether Lawson stays or goes, Mudiay looks like the best anticipation on the board, which is all the Nuggets should affliction about.
8 of 60
Mario Hezonja is still arena overseas, breadth he aloof helped Barcelona adeptness the Spanish ACB finals. For that reason, he isn’t adequate to assignment out with teams actuality in the United States afore the draft.
Hezonja’s account accept been up and bottomward throughout the year, but he doesn’t charge abounding to beam his aptitude and aerial NBA ceiling.
At 6’8″ with effortless above-the-rim athleticism, he projects as a conflict on the wing, breadth he can shoot, handle the ball, canyon and defend.
The Detroit Pistons badly charge to add firepower in amid their guards and bigs. Hezonja could ultimately be a abduct at No. 8.
9 of 60
Kentucky’s Devin Booker adeptness be ambrosial based on fit, but I don’t apperceive how the Charlotte Hornets canyon on Stanley Johnson at No. 9. Admitting he doesn’t accept Booker’s acid accuracy, he still has a adorable achievement that affiliated on 37.1 percent of his threes and 44.4 percent of his two-point jumpers, per Hoop-Math.com.
Johnson is additionally the aloft one-on-one amateur with the academy arresting ceiling. And at 6’7″, 242 pounds, he’s a abiding affair physically.

The Miami Heat will adequate accept their eyes on a few players actuality at No. 10, but Devin Booker’s fit looks too good.
While the Heat could absolutely use some abyss at the 2-guard position, Miami should additionally amount Booker’s acid achievement advancing off the bench.

Murray State’s Cameron Payne is addition name to watch here.
12 of 60
Frank Kaminsky has to be a ambition for the Jazz, who could use his jumper to amplitude the attic appropriate away.
Though Kaminsky isn’t the best atomic athlete, annihilation should accumulate his 41.6 percent three-point achievement from translating.

13 of 60
We could see a aggregation try to barter up for Cameron Payne above-mentioned to No. 13. And he’ll be an advantage for the Pacers at No. 11. But if he manages to aftermost until No. 13, apprehend the Suns to cull the trigger.
Though it’s cryptic as to what the Suns’ cerebration is apropos the amount of belted chargeless abettor Brandon Knight, Payne gives Phoenix the advantage to save its money for the addition and frontcourt.
He’s a anticipation the Suns could benedict as their abiding acknowledgment at the point, and accustomed Eric Bledsoe’s adeptness to handle the ball, Payne wouldn’t accept too abundant burden on him early.
Either way, Payne should accept the abilities and aplomb to authority his own early. He’s one of the top scorers and playmakers in the country and a abeyant NBA amateur for years to come.
14 of 60
The Oklahoma City Thunder adeptness be acquisitive for Cameron Payne to fall, but if not, attending for them to balloon about charge and abstract the top accessible player.

And at 6’10” with above-average advancement and athleticism, he checks out physically for the position.
Lyles isn’t adequate to action abundant rim protection, but with Steven Adams and Serge Ibaka in the middle, the Thunder can acquiesce to booty an offensive-minded big.

16 of 60
R.J. Hunter would assume like a accepted advantage for the Boston Celtics, who abridgement admeasurement and acid in the backcourt.
Hunter hit 253 threes in three seasons, accepting flashed absolute range, a quick absolution and the adeptness to beating bottomward jumpers off movement.
