WIZARDS

Ian Baker, G, New Mexico State

Jared Cunningham, G, Jiangsu Tongxi Monkey Kings (China)

Ike Diogu, F, Jiangsu Tongxi Monkey Kings (China)

Jasonn Hannibal, C, Victoria Roadrunners (2015-16, Mexico)

Max Hooper, G, Westchester Knicks (G-League)

Danuel House, F, Washington Wizards

Issac Humphries, C, Kenucky

Kris Jenkins, F, Villanova

Marcus Keene, G, Central Michigan

Sheldon Mac, G, Washington Wizards

Chris McCullough, F, Washington Wizards

Daniel Ochefu, C, Washington Wizards

Kevin Pangos, G, Zalgiris Kuaunus (Lithuania)

Jaleel Roberts, C, Salt Lake City Stars (G-League)

Devin Robinson, F, Florida

Jalen Ross, G, Hartford

Rayshawn Simmons, G, BK Prostejov (Czech Republic)

Maalik Wayns, G, Maccabi Rishon LeZion (Israel)

Michael Young, F, Pittsburgh

PLAYERS TO WATCH: Ochefu, McCullough, Mac and House all spent time on the Wizards' NBA roster last season. Young was recent signed to a two-way contract and will likely be seen in the NBA next year. And Robinson is a ridiculous athlete at 6-8 and with a 41-inch vertical leap. The Wizards have a second two-way contract to hand out and he is a good candidate. Also, Keene is just 5-9 but was the NCAA's leading scorer last season.

GRIZZLIES

Wade Baldwin IV, G, Vanderbilt

Dillon Brooks, F, Oregon

Ray Cowels, F, Santa Clara

Will Cummings, G, Temple

Devonta Davis, F, Michigan State

William Howard, F, France

Vince Hunter, F, UTEP

Kobi Simmons, G, Arizona

Jarell Martin, F, LSU

Jeremy Morgan, G, Northern Iowa

Ivan Rabb, F, California

Victor Rudd, F, South Florida

Wayne Selden, G, Kansas

Wes Washburn, G, Norther Iowa

Rade Zagorac, F, Serbia

PLAYERS TO WATCH: Keep an eye out for Brooks, who was taken 45th overall in the second round. He can flat out play, as evidenced by Oregon's Final Four run last spring. Also, Simmons went undrafted but he is a freak athlete and a year ago was a McDonald's All-American. Baldwin IV and Martin were first round picks in 2015 and 2016, respectively.

The 2018 NBA Doomsday Mock Draft: A comical look at every team's worst-case scenario

The 2018 NBA Doomsday Mock Draft: A comical look at every team's worst-case scenario

The 2018 NBA Draft takes place on Thursday, June 21 and once again provides a glimmer of hope for even the most downtrodden franchises.

The NBA Draft is where teams can prepare for the future; where teams can rebuild and reload.

But the NBA Draft is often a crapshoot. Teams waffle on taking the best fit versus the best available player. Teams often panic and rest on laurels of draft years past. Fans like to build draft stereotypes for individual franchises, and while a lot of that is stupid Internet conjecture, it's fun to talk about and is often some actual truth to it.

So what follows is a look at the Doomsday Mock Draft. What your favorite team is likely to do if all else fails, which it often does.

1. Phoenix Suns: A franchise center who spends his first contract working with the Suns' medical staff more than his teammates.

2. Sacramento Kings: Someone who won't be a member of the Kings by the time 2022 rolls around.

3. Atlanta Hawks: Someone that will make Dennis Schroder unhappy.

4. Memphis Grizzlies: A Mike Conley Jr. repair kit.

5. Dallas Mavericks: Not the heir apparent to Dirk Nowitzki.

6. Orlando Magic: A reach that won't pan out.

7. Chicago Bulls: Someone from Iowa State, probably.

8. Cleveland Cavaliers: ANYONE YOU WANT LEBRON JUST PLEASE DON'T LEAVE US AGAIN!!

9. New York Knicks: /inserts .GIF of Spike Lee looking disappointed/

10. Philadelphia 76ers: Another big man because HINKIE 4 LYFE.

11. Charlotte Hornets: A North Carolina Tar Heel.

12. Los Angeles Clippers: A playmate for the head coach's son.

13. Los Angeles Clippers: DeAndre Jordan 2.0.

14. Denver Nuggets: Yet another athletic guard.

15. Washington Wizards: Nope. Not touching this one.

16. Phoenix Suns: Someone to pass Devon Booker the ball.

17. Milwaukee Bucks: Wingspan. Nothing but wingspan.

18. San Antonio Spurs: One of the Space Jam villains who conveniently falls to the Spurs (See: Leonard, Kawhi. Anderson, Kyle. Murray, Dejounte)

19. Atlanta Hawks: Someone to replace Dennis Schroder.

20. Minnesota Timberwolves: Someone who Tom Thibideau can play 60 minutes of a 48-minute game.

21. Utah Jazz: A real glue guy. A gym rat. A high-motor guy. Intangibles. Grit. Moxie. 

22. Chicago Bulls: A two-way player who will ultimately get punched in the face by Bobby Portis.

23. Indiana Pacers: DRAFT ANOTHER UCLA PLAYER. WE DARE YOU.

24. Portland Trail Blazers: DRAFT ANOTHER MID-MAJOR GUARD. WE DARE YOU.

25. Los Angeles Lakers: The subject of Lonzo Ball's next diss track.

26. Philadelphia 76ers: A pallet of knockoff burner phones.

27. Boston Celtics: A draft night trade for more draft picks they probably won't use.

28. Golden State Warriors: An unfairly good player.

29. Brooklyn Nets: An unfairly bad player.

30. Atlanta Hawks: We ran out of Dennis Schroder jokes.
