The 2015 draft is LOADED with big men


The 2015 draft is loaded with talent a lot like this past year was. The bigger focus in next years draft is big men, and I think there are a few franchise changing talents. Before you jump the gun and say that you need to do a years worth scouting I want a quick pull that maybe we can look back and smile in a year after selecting one of the people we're about to vote for.

Heres a mock of the lottery.

  • Milwaukee Bucks: Jahlil Okafor, C, Duke, 6-10, HS Sr.
    The top recruit in the 2014 class, Jahlil Okafor is a terrific back-to-the-basket post scorer who knows how to carve out space inside with his wide body.

  • Philadelphia 76ers: Emmanuel Mudiay, PG, SMU, 6-5, HS Sr.
    With ideal size and strength for an NBA point guard, Emmanuel Mudiay is at his best off the bounce.

  • Orlando Magic: Cliff Alexander, PF, Kansas, 6-9, HS Sr.
    Cliff Alexander brings a terrific combination of strength and athleticism to the power forward position.

  • Utah Jazz: Myles Turner, C, Texas, 7-0, HS Sr.
    A developing big man with incredible athleticism, Myles Turner is just scratching the surface with how good he might be.

  • Boston Celtics: Stanley Johnson, SF, Arizona, 6-7, HS Sr.
    Stanley Johnson brings tremendous athleticism and versatility to the floor.

  • Los Angeles Lakers: Kelly Oubre, SF, Kansas, 6-7, HS Sr.
    An athletic, lengthy small forward, Kelly Oubre will step in for Andrew Wiggins next year at Kansas.

  • Sacramento Kings: Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, SF, Arizona, 6-7, Fr.
    The lefty is an extremely physical and aggressive player around the hoop, but he needs to work on his perimeter game.

  • Detroit Pistons: Karl Towns, C, Kentucky, 7-1, HS Sr.
    Size, athleticism, and the ability to step out and knock down outside shots; these attributes make the Dominican Republic native a terrific prospect.

  • Cleveland Cavaliers: Trey Lyles, PF, Kentucky, 6-10, HS Sr.
    A skilled post player with good size, Trey Lyles figures to be another one-and-done John Calipari product.

  • New Orleans Pelicans: Ilimane Diop, C, Senegal, 6-11, 1995
    An athletic, lengthy big man who is more polished on the offensive end than most foreign big men.

  • New York Knicks: Rashad Vaughn, SG, UNLV, 6-5, HS Sr.
    Rashad Vaughn is a dangerous scorer whether attacking the basket or shooting it from deep.

  • Denver Nuggets: Mario Hezonja, SG, Croatia, 6-6, 1995
    Mario Hezonja is in the mold of most European wings since he is a crafty all-around scorer.

  • Minnesota Timberwolves: Tyus Jones, PG, Duke, 6-1, HS Sr.
    Tyus Jones is beyond his years in terms of his maturity and poise as a floor leader.

  • Phoenix Suns: Chris Walker, PF, Florida, 6-10, Fr.
    The Gator freshman isn't incredibly physical or skilled down low but, he can jump out of the gym.
