In my first mock draft, and in nearly every early mock draft, Evan Turner was the number two pick, headed to Philadelphia.
But over the last few weeks, I have begun to read more and more reports that the 76ers may be thinking (over-thinking) of going in a different direction. In my opinion, Turner, is the no-brainer pick at #2, but as of now, it doesn't look like that will definitely happen.
My first mock draft was based mostly on what teams should do, under my theory teams should draft for talent first and need second. Now, with draft workouts and interviews under way, this second mock draft is more a reflection of what teams might be thinking.
In addition to Turner possibly falling out of the number two position, here are some other changes since my first mock draft:
Stock on the rise: Luke Babbitt, SF, Nevada; Avery Bradley, PG, Texas; Paul George, SF, Fresno State; Gordon Hayward, SF, Butler.
Stock falling: Damion James, SF, Texas; Donatas Motiejunas, PF, Lithuania; Hassan Whiteside, C, Marshall.
Additions to the first round: Craig Brackins, PF, Iowa State; Keith Gallon, PF, Texas.
Dropouts from the first round: Elliot Williams, SG, Memphis (was 28 to Memphis); Devin Ebanks, SF, West Virginia (was 30 to Washington).
