[NBA Draft]: 2023 Mock Draft Comparison, January 2023

Note: If the table is not loading correctly on your mobile device via Twitter, then copy and paste this link in your browser and view the post on my site at https://hoopsdistillery.com/mockdraftcomp-dec22/.

1/19 update: Three new mock drafts added today: 1st 2023 mock draft from Ricky O’Donnell/SB Nation, two week update from Jonathan Wasserman/Bleacher Report, and the launch of the 2023 Ringer draft guide from Kevin O’Connor/The Ringer. I also added the first pick variation chart for the 2023 draft so we can start to see the expected draft range for the top picks. As is typical at this time of year, there’s a high variance for the 27 top prospects I included — 8.7 currently! In contrast to some of the other mock drafts, the three I added today, all have Kel’el Ware going mid-first round and two of three have Noah Clowney in that range too. Also of note is that O’Donnell seems to agreeanalyst to agree with Jeremy Woo and Sam Vecenie about Keyonte George going late lottery. Also, lots of disagreement about where Anthony Black should be picked across the board.

1/16 update: New 2-round mock draft from Tankathon–1st round picks added here. He has Brandon Miller going at #3 to the Pistons, the Thompson twins back-to-back at #4 and #5, and Brice Sensabaugh all the way up at #14 to the Hawks.

1/13 update: I’ve added fresh 1st round picks for Sam Vecenie/The Athletic and Jeremy Woo/Sports Illustrated. Both have Nick Smith dropping to the #9 spot due to his current injury issues and lack of opportunity to showcase his skills. Woo has some very interesting picks that differ from the rest of the pack including Anthony Black going at #3 to Houston, Amen Thompson dropping to #6 for Charlotte, Keyonte George dropping to #16 with the Clippers, and Rayan Rupert jumping him at #13 to the Jazz. Also, I slightly updated my own mock draft, as I totally forgot to include GG Jackson in my original version.

1/8 update: New 1st round picks added for Bryan Kalbrosky/USA Today and Jonathan Wasserman/Bleacher Report, as well as our first mock draft of 2023! Jett Howard and Maxwell Lewis now firmly entrenched in the top half of the 1st round, Colby Jones in the middle of the 1st round, and Ricky Council towards the end of the 1st round.

It’s time to break away from the highly erratic early season mock drafts as team records are starting to settle out a bit, giving us a better feel for which teams will be in the lottery. So far this month, we have three new mock drafts to compare, including Jonathan Givony/ESPN-Draft Express, Jonathan Wasserman/Bleacher Report, and Tankathon. After some impressive games in the non-conference play, some new names have popped into the first round across the board, including Ohio State’s Brice Sensabaugh, Alabama’s Noah Clowney, UCF’s Taylor Hendricks, and Pepperdine’s Maxwell Lewis. The biggest riser of all appears to be Michigan’s Jett Howard, who Wasserman and Givony have going at #10 (Tankathon has at #15). Stay tuned for more mock drafts to be added in the next couple of weeks!

There will be more mock drafts posted in the coming weeks, so make sure to check back for updates and follow me at @hoopsdistillery on Twitter for update notifications.

1/8 update: Added the top 50 from Jonathan Givony/ESPN-Draft Express. I always seem to forget that his board is updated on the fly without tweets or other alerts, as a running ‘best available’ list. Woopsy!

Christmas time has arrived, so it’s time to sit back and digest what we’ve seen far. To help us with the this exercise, we’re fortunate to (finally) have three 2023 big boards to stack up against each other. So, here’s our first big board comp of the year featuring boards from Sam Vecenie/The Athletic, Jonathan Wasserman/Bleacher Report, and Tankathon. I also added the link to Jeremy Woo/Sports Illustrated‘s big board from August which I believe was the first one posted this season.

There will be more big boards posted in the coming weeks, so make sure to check back for updates and follow me at @hoopsdistillery on Twitter for update notifications. Also, if I’m missing any big boards that you feel belong alongside the ‘All-NBA level’ draft analysts I currently include, leave a comment or DM me on Twitter.

[NBA Draft]: 2023 Mock Draft Comparison, January 2023

We now have five mock drafts to compare, including Kevin O’Connor/The Ringer, Ricky O’Donnell/SB Nation, Sam Vecenie/The Athletic, Jeremy Woo/Sports Illustrated, Jonathan Wasserman/Bleacher Report, Bryan Kalbrosky/USA Today Tankathon, and the first Hoops Distillery mock draft of 2023!

[NBA Draft]: 2023 Mock Draft Comparison, Oct/Nov/Dec

Note: If the table is not loading correctly on your mobile device via Twitter, then copy and paste this link in your browser and view the post on my site at https://hoopsdistillery.com/mockdraftcomp-oct22/.

12/9 update: Another updated 2-round mock draft from Jonathan Wasserman/Bleacher Report. In this one Orlando has the #1 pick and grabs some guy named ‘Victor Wembanyama‘ as well as Ausar Thompson at #6.

12/2 update: New mock drafts added from Jonathan Givony/ESPN-Draft Express and Tankathon. Givony has Ausar Thompson moving up to #5 to OKC after releasing video of his improved shooting stroke, and Dariq Whitehead dropping down to #10 pick from Orlando. Meanwhile, Tankathon has Brandon Miller going #3 to the Pistons. Now that we’ve moved into December, I added an extra table below that shows mock comparisons (Dec/Nov vs Oct) of ESPN vs ESPN, B/R vs B/R and Tankathon vs Tankathon to picks have shifted for that particular draft analyst.

11/25 update: Updated 2-round mock draft from Jonathan Wasserman/Bleacher Report who has Anthony Black going #6 to the Spurs and Derek Lively dropping all the way to #23 to the Clippers.

11/18 update: Fresh picks from Jeremy Woo/Sports Illustrated and Tankathon to add to October’s mock draft comparison. Lots of contrast across lottery picks starting at #3–Woo has Nick Smith while everyone else has Amen Thompson. At #5 we see Woo went with Jarace Walker, while Tankathon has Dariq Whitehead–everyone else went with Whitmore.

10/27 update: New mock draft added from Sam Vecenie/The Athletic who has some very interesting picks, including Cam Whitmore going #5 to Houston and also Tyrese Proctor going #13 to the Knicks.


And….we’re back! A new season is upon us, and after an unforgettable Scoot vs. Wemby showcase in Las Vegas, the NBA back in full gear, and college ball about to start up, we have new picks to compare from Jonathan Wasserman/Bleacher Report, Jonathan Givony/ESPN-Draft Express, and Tankathon. Not surprisingly, there’s lots of disagreement on who will go where in the back half of the lottery. The bottom line: this draft is stacked! There’s been so much commentary after the first two weeks of the NBA season about the talent level never being higher in the league, and I don’t think that’s even debatable. But looking at these 2023 picks, I already have a nervous twitch of joy imagining these guys being added to the mix–especially with glut of wings that so many teams are endlessly searching for.

Since Tankathon constantly updates pick order based on current NBA records, I left teams out for his picks, as they will change quite a bit in the coming weeks. That being said, it’s still well worth seeing their player rankings up against ESPN and B/R.

[NBA Draft]: 2022 If/Then Lottery Mock Draft

After having consumed a huge amount of mock drafts, big boards, player analysis and draft combine coverage, it’s time to take a multi-dimensional look at the choices each lottery team may face on draft night.

[NBA Draft]: 2022 Mock Draft Comparison, May

With this year’s Draft Lottery in the rearview mirror, we have a full batch of eight shiny, new mock drafts to compare. featuring 1st round picks from Jonathan Wasserman/Bleacher Report, Kevin O’Connor/The Ringer, ESPN-Draft Express/Jonathan Givony, Sam Vecenie/The Athletic, Ricky O’Donnell/SB Nation, Bryan Kalbrosky/USA Today and Tankathon.

[NBA Draft]: 2022 Mock Draft Comparison, April

Post March Madness + NBA playoff time = early entry commitments and the start of pre-draft workouts. And with that, we have new 1st round picks to compare from Jeremy Woo/Sports Illustrated, Jonathan Wasserman/Bleacher Report, Jonathan Givony/ESPN-Draft Express, and Rafael Barlowe/NBA Big Board.

[NBA Draft]: 2022 Mock Draft Comparison, March (updated 4/9)

After two weeks of March Madness, the next round of mock drafts have been released and are ready to put head to head. I’ve added 1st round picks from Sam Vecenie/The Athletic, Jonathan Wasserman/Bleacher Report, Kevin O’Connor/The Ringer, Tankathon, ESPN-Draft Express/Jonathan Givony, Bryan Kalbrosky/USA Today, and Ricky O’Donnell/SB Nation.

[NBA Draft]: 2023 Mock Draft Comparison, July 2022 (updated 8/2)

Note: If the table is not loading correctly on your mobile device via Twitter, then copy and paste this link in your browser and view the post on my site at https://hoopsdistillery.com/mockdraftcomp-july22/.

8/2 update: The first mock draft of 2023 from Jonathan Wasserman/Bleacher Report was released yesterday. This is the first mock that includes GG Jackson, who just reclassified after announcing he’s decommitting from North Carolina and headed to South Carolina.

7/31 update: New mock draft from Bryan Kalbrosky/USA Today, and I also added the great summary Jonathan Givony provided in his 6/24 mock draft of picks that have already changed hands

7/14 update: Just added new picks from Sam Vecenie/The Athletic. Cam Whitmore in the #3 spot amongst a variety of other contrasting picks from the other mock drafts. His pick order is based on the current sportsbook betting odds to win the title in 2023.

To kick off the new draft cycle each year, Jonathan Givony from ESPN/Draft Express always publishes an updated mock draft the day after the NBA Draft. Thankfully, we already have picks from Tankathon and Ricky O’Donnell/SB Nation to compare them against. I’ve also included Givony’s picks from his first 2023 mock draft in January, 2022. You’ll notice that O’Donnell doesn’t include teams for each pick, just pick numbers. As we all sit back and enjoy Summer League, it’s time to start letting some of these names marinate in the back of our minds to be ready for when college basketball, OTE, and G League kicking off in the fall.

One word….WEMBANYAMA. Challenging to spell, yes. Harder than spelling ‘Antetokounmpo’, thankfully no. The consensus number one, Wemby has already been labeled a generational talent, thanks to his guard-like skills in a Rudy Gobert-like body. We also can’t snooze on Scoot Henderson from G League Ignite after seeing the variety of flashes he displayed last season. And judging from the high-level play at throughout the high school all-star circuit, there is a lot of talent in next year’s draft which should make for quite a lot of movement on mock drafts throughout the year.

Make sure to check back for updates and follow me at @hoopsdistillery on Twitter for update notifications. If I’m missing any mocks that you feel belong alongside the ‘All-NBA level’ draft analysts I currently include, leave a comment or DM me on Twitter.

First-round picks that changed hands for 2023:

(via Jonathan Givony/ESPN-Draft Express in his June 24th, 2022 mock draft)

Charlotte’s first-rounder is owned by Atlanta if Charlotte’s pick falls between No. 17 and 30 in 2023. If Charlotte’s pick finishes between 1-16, Atlanta will instead receive Charlotte’s 2024 first-rounder, lottery-protected.

On draft night, Charlotte scored a protected top-14 protected first-rounder from Denver via Oklahoma City and New York in a three-way trade.

Houston has first-round swap rights with Brooklyn.

Houston owns Milwaukee’s first-rounder, which is unprotected.

Brooklyn owns Philadelphia’s first-rounder, which is unprotected.

Chicago’s first-rounder is owned by Orlando if Chicago’s pick falls between 5 and 30 in 2023. If Chicago’s pick finishes between 1-4, Orlando will instead receive Chicago’s 2024 first-rounder, protected for picks 1-3.

Portland’s first-rounder is owned by Chicago if Portland’s pick falls between 15 and 30 in 2023. If Portland misses the playoffs as expected, Chicago will instead receive Portland’s 2024 first-rounder, again lottery-protected.

Cleveland’s first-rounder is owned by Indiana if Cleveland’s pick falls between 15 and 30 in 2023. If Cleveland misses the playoffs, Indiana will instead receive Cleveland’s 2025 second-round pick and the Lakers’ 2026 second-round pick.

Dallas’ first-rounder is owned by New York if Dallas’ pick falls between 11 and 30 in 2023. If Dallas’ pick finishes between 1-10, New York will instead receive Dallas’ 2024 first-rounder, protected for picks 1-10.

Denver’s first-rounder is owned by Oklahoma City if Denver’s pick falls between 15 and 30 in 2023. If Denver misses the playoffs, Oklahoma City will instead receive Denver’s 2024 first-rounder, again lottery-protected.

Detroit’s first-rounder is owned by Oklahoma City if Detroit’s pick falls between 19 and 30 in 2023. If Detroit’s pick falls between 1-18, Oklahoma City will instead receive Detroit’s 2024 first-rounder, again protected for picks 1-18.

Oklahoma City has first-round swap rights with the Los Angeles Clippers.

New Orleans has first-round swap rights with the Los Angeles Lakers.

On draft night, New York gained two protected first-round picks, both via Oklahoma City: a top-14 protected originally from Washington, and a top-18 protected originally from Detroit.

Washington’s first-rounder is owned by Oklahoma City if Washington’s pick falls between 15 and 30 in 2023. If Washington’s pick finishes between 1-14, Oklahoma City will instead receive Washington’s 2024 first-rounder, protected for picks 1-12.

[NBA Draft]: 2022 Big Board Comparison, March

March Madness has arrived along with three new big boards to compare from Chad Ford/NBA Big Board, Kevin O’Connor/The Ringer and Sam Vecenie/The Athletic.

[NBA Draft]: 2022 Mock Draft Comparison, February (updated 3/7)

We spend a lot of time following all of the top NBA Draft analysts for months as they post and tweet about intel and update their big boards and mock drafts leading up to draft day. But once that day comes and goes, it’s easy to shift focus to how the rookies will fit on their new rosters, summer league, and the next draft cycle, so I thought it might be nice to compile all of the final versions of these mock drafts and compare them to the actual 2022 draft order for easy reference in the future.

Here is the actual 2022 NBA Draft order versus the final mock drafts from Sports Illustrated’s Jeremy Woo, Bleacher Report’s Jonathan Wasserman, ESPN’s Jonathan Givony, USA Today’s Bryan Kalbrosky, SB Nation’s Ricky O’Donnell, The Ringer’s Kevin O’Connor, and The Athletic’s Sam Vecenie and John Hollinger, Tankathon.com, and our own Hoops Distillery picks:

[NBA Draft]: 2022 Big Board Comparison, November (2021)

College basketball is back, along with G League and OTE, which means we have a fresh set of big boards to compare featuring Chad Ford at NBA Big Board, Sam Vecenie at The Athletic, and Jonathan Wasserman from B/R.


Don’t forget to follow us on Instagram @hoopsdistillery for posts, original artwork, and other reserve NBA content:

[NBA Draft]: 2022 Mock Draft Comparison, June

Note: If the table is not loading correctly on your mobile device via Twitter, then copy and paste this link in your browser and view the post on my site at https://hoopsdistillery.com/mockdraftcomp-june22/.

6/25 update: NBA.com draft trade tracker has been updated. I also added this to the the links on my NBA Draft page. Also, just posted my final mock drafts vs. actual picks post.

6/23 update: (update 6): One more update–this time from Jeremy Woo/Sports Illustrated. Christian Braun moving up in a few of these updates, as is Andrew Nembhard. Vecenie and Pennie going live at 7:45 pm EST on YouTube.

(update 5): Sam Vecenie/The Athletic and Tankathon just posted updates. Rumors swirling about Thybulle trades. Blazers and Hawks working to make roster moves. Kyrie setting NBA Twitter ablaze. It’s all happening.

(update 4) Newly updated mock from Kevin O’Connor/The Ringer, plus I grabbed the updated picks from Tankathon that were posted last night. Lots of different opinions on the order picks within the 8-30 range.

(update 3) Second update of the day from Jonathan Wasserman/Bleacher Report with some movement in the last 1st. Also, fresh update from Bryan Kalbrosky/USA Today, who also did a great podcast with Coach Spins (@TheBoxandOne_) last night.

(update 2) Updated mock draft posted from Jonathan Wasserman/Bleacher Report. Looks like he only has movement in the 20’s, but some interesting intel, including that Jeremy Sochan worked out for the Kings, showing they have considered moving down.

(update 1) Draft Day has arrived! Mock drafts with few changes but lots of new intel and trade rumors will be coming quick throughout the day. This morning I have updated picks from Jonathan Givony/ESPN-Draft Express and Jeremy Woo/Sports Illustrated with most movement in the mid-lottery and in the 20’s.

6/22 update: (update 3) Fresh intel from Jeremy Woo/Sports Illustrated, and we now have 24 confirmed Green Room invites:

via @nbapr

(update 2) Updated lottery picks in Jonathan Givony/ESPN-Draft Express‘s mock draft a few minutes ago. Keegan Murray and Ben Mathurin flip flopped, and he now has Dyson Daniels to the Blazers at 7, Ousmane Dieng to Pelicans at 8, and Shaedon Sharpe to the Spurs at 10.

(update 1) Woke up to see an updated mock draft from Jonathan Wasserman/Bleacher Report and a new mock draft from one of our favs, John Hollinger/The Athletic. Hollinger was also on the No Dunks pod yesterday talking draft with the guys–very entertaining listen! Another great Please Don’t Aggregate This pod not miss from yesterday from Jake Fischer and Jeremy Woo taking draft questions and sharing intel.

6/21 update: (update 3) Bryan Kalbrosky/USA Today posted an updated mock draft this morning. As opposed to the reporting last week that Mathurin may be the one moving up, Kalbrosky had intel that the Pacers may have fallen in love with Dyson Daniels after “one of the best workouts they have ever seen.” He also has Shaedon Sharpe dropping to OKC at 12.

(update 2) New mock draft posted by Sam Vecenie/The Athletic. He also posted his 90,000+ word Draft Guide which is an amazing piece of work, so make sure to check that out too. Also, ICYMI, John Hollinger/The Athletic posted a new piece with his Top-75 and draft tiers–always a must read!

(update 1) Freshly updated mock draft from Jonathan Givony/ESPN-Draft Express this morning–hasn’t even been tweeted out yet! Lots of juicy trade rumors in this one including everyone and their mother trying to pry away the #4 pick from the Kings. Hawks may be dangling John Collins + Kevin Huerter for 4, according to Givony.

6/20 update: Some very interesting, new picks from Jeremy Woo/Sports Illustrated this morning, who has Jalen Williams going 14 to the Cavs, Wendell Moore going 19 to Minny, and TyTy Washington going to Philly at 23. He also points out that the Thunder and Hawks are now the most likely trade partners for the Blazers 7th pick.

6/17 update: Updated mock draft from Kevin O’Connor/The Ringer. Mathurin moving up to #5 and OKC, Houston and Denver all trying to trade up — I’m loving this! Updated tables below.

6/15 update: (update 2) Added sortable pick variance chart to analyze draft range across all of our featured mock drafts for the top prospects

(update 1) Another trade–and new picks from Tankathon! Houston now owns the 26th pick after trading Christian Wood to Dallas. Updated mock draft comparison below. Givony updated the 26th pick description in his latest ESPN mock draft pick but kept MarJon Beauchamp as the pick.

6/14 update: Updated mock drafts released this morning from Jonathan Givony/ESPN-Draft Express, Jonathan Wasserman/Bleacher Report, and Ricky O’Donnell/SB Nation. Ben Mathurin moving up after pre-draft workouts.

6/13 update: New picks today from Kevin O’Connor/The Ringer via their NBA Draft Guide

Also, the Nuggets just made a trade with OKC to acquire the 30th pick in the 1st round:

Draft month has arrived which means mock draft updates will be coming quickly. I’ll be updating this page every time that new picks are posted leading up to the big day on June 23rd. We can expect updated picks next week and, for some, again the week of the draft based on new intel from team workouts, interviews, and medicals that have been happening over the last few weeks. For now, we have new picks from Jeremy Woo/Sports Illustrated, Jonathan Wasserman/Bleacher Report, Jonathan Givony/ESPN-Draft Express, Bryan Kalbrosky/USA Today, Tankathon.

This mock draft comp also features the debut of the Hoops Distillery 1st round picks. In order to get your wheels turning as you analyze the chaos that could ensue on draft day, I tried to make realistic picks based on team needs that strayed from the consensus, in order to serve up some artisanal food for thought based on what teams could do, but not what they should do. In the end, it looks like there could easily be a few trades that turn all of the mock drafts upside down, but also make for a highly entertaining evening.

Since the May mock draft comparison post, there was also some movement on the 23rd pick (in case your missed it):

If I’m missing any mocks that you feel belong alongside the ‘All-NBA level’ draft analysts I currently include, leave a comment or DM me on Twitter.
