NBA Mock Draft: Klay Thompson on the Rise & the Kings Want a Small Forward

Steve Kyler writes for Hoops World. This is his second mock draft at The Big Lead.

1 Cleveland (From LA Clippers) – Kyrie Irving, Duke
2 Minnesota – Derrick Williams, Arizona…..With the Wolves trying to trade the #2, Williams slides into the 2nd spot. He is very polished and skilled player. Arguably the most NBA-ready prospect in the class.
3 Utah (From New Jersey) – Brandon Knight, Kentucky
4 Cleveland – Jonas Valanciunas, Lithuania…..Considered the best NBA center prospect. Dominating post player. Buyout concerns could hurt his stock.
5 Toronto – Kawhi Leonard, San Diego State
6 Washington – Enes Kanter, Turkey
7 Sacramento – Marcus Morris, Kansas…..Tough and physical player. Good quickness for his size. Kings are targeting Small Forwards exclusively.
8 Detroit – Jan Vesely, Czech Republic
9 Charlotte – Kemba Walker, Connecticut
10 Milwaukee – Alec Burks, Colorado
11 Golden State – Klay Thompson, Washington State…..Solid shooter. Big and Long. Dynamic as a scorer with an array of tools. Workout feedback has been strong.
12 Utah – Bismack Biyombo, Congo…..Extremely athletic and versatile. Did not show well in workouts at adidas EuroCamp, but still has extreme upside.
13 Phoenix – Jimmer Fredette, BYU
14 Houston – Donatas Motiejunas, Lithuania
15 Indiana – Iman Shumpert, Georgia Tech…..Long and versatile guard that can play both guard positions. Workout feedback is generating a lot of positive buzz.
16 Philadelphia – Markieff Morris, Kansas
17 New York – Malcolm Lee, UCLA…..Improved shooting form. Now hitting shots with great consistency. Buzz from his workouts is strong.
18 Washington (From Atlanta) – Jordan Hamilton, Texas
19 Charlotte (From New Orleans via Portland) – Tobias Harris, Tennessee
20 Minnesota (From Memphis via Utah) – Lucas Nogueira, Brazil
21 Portland – Kenneth Faried, Morehead State
22 Denver – Chris Singleton, F, Florida State
