R. Cory Smith's Mock Predictions

 

Andrew Wiggins, No. 1 overall pick

It kind of has a ring to it.

While some still believe Embiid might have the most upside in this class, all signs now point toward the Cleveland Cavaliers taking either Wiggins or Parker with the first selection. Chad Ford of ESPN (subscription needed) notes that the foot surgery Embiid underwent drastically hurt his stock:

Embiid was the heavy favorite to be the top pick before Thursday's news of the stress fracture in his foot, which will require surgery. Sources in Cleveland say it is now very unlikely the Cavaliers would take him No. 1. Like any team, they will want to see the medical report after the surgery, but this has seriously dampened their enthusiasm for Embiid.

That leaves two prospects -- Wiggins and Jabari Parker. Wiggins worked out for the Cavs on Wednesday and was impressive, according to sources. Although he didn't shoot the ball well, he has improved his ballhandling and showed off his explosive athleticism.

Though the Cavaliers typically keep their decisions pretty close to the vest, there have been rumors coming out of their camp leading up to Thursday. After what appears to be a questionable selection of Anthony Bennett last season, it's hard to think they will pick any other player except for Wiggins or Parker.

Ford explains the tumult taking place in the organization:

Whether it's ultimately Wiggins or Parker, both have promise in the NBA and look to be potential All-Stars in just a few seasons. As for Wiggins, the Canadian forward doesn't lack any confidence, per Bob Wolfley of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

"I think I'll be a star wherever I go," Wiggins said. "That's just how confident I am in my ability."

With all three players primed to be superstars at the next level, landing any one of them should be a franchise-changing selection. But teams know what they want, and it will ultimately be Wiggins going No. 1 overall.

 

Talent in the Second Round

What do Isaiah Thomas, Lance Stephenson and Danny Green all have in common? All three notable players were selected in the second round in the last five drafts.

While second-round gems are typically rare, this year's class presents a few players who have a chance to shine. One of those players is Jarnell Stokes, who has seen his stock rise and fall throughout the draft process.

Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun provides his thoughts on the power forward:

The former Tennessee big man clogged up the paint for the Volunteers last season, finishing with 15.1 points and 10.6 rebounds. That type of production translates well to the NBA regardless of what team eventually picks him.

Some predictions have Stokes in the first round, which is where he believes he will be selected, per Ben Frederickson of the Knoxville News Sentinel:

Outside of Stokes, another player to watch is a young guard who emerged early last year before his season was derailed by injury.

Spencer Dinwiddie was the lead man for Colorado last season, scoring 14.7 points with 3.1 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game. Had he finished out the season, we might be talking about a potential first-round lock with Dinwiddie's talent.

Eric Sondheimer, who covered Dinwiddie in high school with the Los Angeles Times, offered his take on the young man moving forward:

After great college careers, both players have a chance to make a difference in the NBA. While either could potentially rise into the first round, they will both be prospects to watch at the next level.
