[NBA Draft]: 2021 Hoops Distillery Mock Draft (updated 6/25)

The much anticipated Draft Lottery took place this week and the Detroit Pistons moved up a spot to grab the #1 pick in the #FadeforCade sweepstakes. And with that, it’s time for an updated mock draft via the Fanspo (formerly TradeNBA) Mock Draft Simulator using the official NBA Draft order. Buzz seems to be growing for Scottie Barnes moving into the top 5 picks and pushing Jonathan Kuminga out, but I’m not so sure Orlando will opt for that based on their lack of offense firepower. Cleveland is also in a bit of an odd position where they may need to pick Jalen Green based on upside which may force their hand in trading Colin Sexton. Warriors are also rumored to be considering trading out of the draft for a proven veteran, but I have them taking Bouknight and Kispert which would (in theory) shift them back to an elite and diverse offense team. As for OKC’s retool, they go with an hyper-athletic trio of Barnes, Ziaire Williams and Day’Ron Sharpe, while the Knicks revamp their backcourt with Sharife Cooper and Chris Duarte.
