[NBA Draft]: 2021 Mock Draft Comparison, June (updated 6/29)

6/29 Update: ESPN/Draft Express posted an updated mock draft post-Draft Combine and Pro Days. Jalen Green moves up from #3 to #2, Scottie Barnes from #9 to #5, and James Bouknight #19 to #8.

After months of anticipation, the 2021 Draft Lottery is complete and the Pistons came out as the big winners….or so it seems at this moment [see future story: Cade Cunningham switches to Klutch Sports and warns Pistons he’ll sit out the year if they pick him]. Rockets breathed a huge sigh of relief. sticking in the top 4 and narrowly avoiding sending their pick to OKC. And the Cavs and Raptors luck out and move up into the top 4. As always, all of the top draft analysts released new mock drafts last night, so this mock draft comp is the richest yet, especially since everyone is now on an ‘equal playing field’ knowing the order of picks and having studied tape, talked to many agents, scouts, and front office folks. As more mock drafts are posted, I’ll be adding them to this post, so make sure to check back for updates throughout the month. or follow me at @hoopsdistillery.
