NBA Mock Draft Version 6.0: A Copycat League
1. Karl-Anthony Towns
Center | Kentucky
Towns has the potential to be a two-way standout, showing a little more diversity and defensive potential than Okafor.
2. Jahlil Okafor
Center | Duke
The Lakers get some much-needed size on the interior with a player whose strength -- scoring -- is something they desperately need.
3. D'Angelo Russell
Point Guard | Ohio State
Joel Embiid's uncertainty will give them reason to think about going big, but Russell has too much talent to pass up.
4. Kristaps Porzingis
Power Forward/Center | Spain
Not ready to make an impact from Day One, but has the length and skillset to be an impact player in the near future.
5. Mario Hezonja
Shooting Guard/Small Forward | Spain
Tough call between Hezonja and Justise Winslow, but Magic go with the guy who is more ready to play now.
6. Emmanuel Mudiay
Point Guard | China
Kings are due for some draft luck. Getting Mudiay at No. 6? Yup, that qualifies.
7. Justise Winslow
Small Forward | Duke
Uber athlete with elite defender potential who will be a great fit for new coach Mike Malone's system.
8. Stanley Johnson
Small Forward | Arizona
Pistons need help at the wing position. Johnson's knack for scoring, plus his defensive skills, make him an ideal fit.
9. Willie Cauley-Stein
Center | Kentucky
Hornets add some much-needed depth -- especially defensively -- to play behind former Celtic Al Jefferson.
10. Devin Booker
Shooting Guard | Kentucky
One of the draft's biggest risers, Booker is young but has a great stroke and tons of potential.
11. Cameron Payne
Point Guard | Murray State
Mid-major stars are making a big-time impact sooner rather than later. Payne has that kind of potential.
12. Myles Turner
Center/Power Forward | Texas
Great size, strength and a nice touch from the perimeter for a player his size.
13. Kelly Oubre
Small Forward | Kansas
If he becomes half as good as he thinks he is, Oubre will be an All-Star before his rookie contract expires.
14. Sam Dekker
Small Forward | Wisconsin
Played second fiddle to Kaminsky for years; playing in the shadows of Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook should not be an issue.
15. Frank Kaminsky
Power Forward/Center | Wisconsin
Playoffs exposed their lack of depth in the frontcourt, specifically the fact that they don't have a stretch big off the bench.
16. Bobby Portis
Power Forward/Center | Arkansas
Golden State is proof-positive that to compete for a title, there's no such thing as having too many good players at one position.
17. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson
Small Forward | Arizona
Long, athletic defender who runs the floor well, the kind of player that the Bucks have made a priority of adding to their roster repeatedly.
18. Jerian Grant
Point Guard | Notre Dame
It's only fitting the oldest backcourt rotation in the NBA adds one of the oldest players in the draft.
19. Trey Lyles
Power Forward | Kentucky
His versatility to play both inside and on the perimeter gives an already deep Wizards team, more lineup options.
20. Kevon Looney
Power Forward | UCLA
As much upside as you'll find in this draft. Looney has tremendous potential to far outperform his draft slot.
21. Tyus Jones
Point Guard | Duke
Great court vision, high assists-to-turnover ratio and, most important, fills a need that may not be addressed via free agency.
22. Justin Anderson
Shooting Guard/Small Forward | Virginia
Tough, gritty defender who showcased a much-improved perimeter game this past season.
23. Montrezl Harrell
Power Forward | Louisville
Runs the floor well, good rebounder, but shooting touch from the perimeter remains very much a work in progress.
24. Delon Wright
Point Guard | Utah
Great size, good scorer and plays defense, which collectively bode well for his chances at seeing action early on as a rookie.
25. Rashad Vaughn
Shooting Guard | UNLV
For a team that's offensively-challenged at times, adding a player with Vaughn's scoring instincts would be a huge boost to the Grizzlies bench.
26. Guillermo Hernangomez
Center | Spain
Look for the Spurs to draft and stash whoever they select with this pick.
27. Anthony Brown
Shooting Guard | Stanford
Shot 44 percent on 3s last season. Came back a better, more complete player after hip surgery in 2012.
28. R. J. Hunter
Shooting Guard | Georgia State
Best shooter on the board, plus he has a great relationship with Brad Stevens dating back to when Stevens tried to recruit him to Butler.
29. Cliff Alexander
Power Forward | Kansas
Total disappointment at Kansas, but he's strong, a good shot blocker, and plays with a bit of an attitude.
30. Chris McCullough
Power Forward | Syracuse
Likes to play above the rim and runs the floor well. Needs more strength, which should come about in time.
