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:

(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.
