7/29 update: Re-updated with new mocks drafts from Jonathan Givony at ESPN, Kevin O’Connor at The Ringer, Chad Ford at NBA Big Board, and Jonathan Wasserman at B/R! Updated this morning with new picks from Jonathan Givony at ESPN. Keep checking back for updates throughout the day. And as Mike Schmitz, said in his tweet below, LET’S GO!! Draft Day has finally arrived!

7/28 update: Updated again with new mock drafts from Jonathan Givony at ESPN and Jeremy Woo at SI. Added updated mock draft from Jonathan Wasserman at B/R, and 2nd round picks for Kevin O’Connor at The Ringer.

7/27 update: Added updated mock drafts from John Hollinger at The Athletic, Sam Vecenie at The Athletic, and Kevin O’Connor at The Ringer.

7/26 update: Re-updated, post Grizzlies-Pelicans trade, with updated mock drafts from ESPN, Chad Ford, and Jeremy Woo. Added updated mock drafts from Jeremy Woo at Sport Illustrated and Chad Ford from NBABigBoard.com.

7/25 update: added new mock drafts from Jonathan Givony at ESPN and Tankathon.

7/23 update: added Kevin O’Connor‘s updated 1st round mock draft from The Ringer‘s NBA Draft Guide.

7/21 update: added updated mock drafts from Sam Vecenie at The Athletic and Jonathan Wasserman at B/R.

7/20 update: added updated mock draft from Jeremy Woo at SI.

Late posting this one as work, family, and travel made it tough to keep up with all the updates being posted since the Draft Combine, withdrawal deadline, and with team workouts happening. Chad Ford posted his mock draft 3.0 on NBABigBoard.com (which is having a big $40 annual sale for subscribers btw–well worth it!), Jonathan Wasserman from Bleacher Report putting in lots of high-quality work as always, and our friends at Tankathon. Scottie Barnes is firmly in the top 5, and it sounds like James Bouknight has wowed team execs to solidify his spot in the top 10. Jared Butler got great news yesterday, as he was cleared by NBA health protocols, and Jaden Springer, now injury-free, has made quite an impression during team workouts. There will be many more mock drafts posted this week, so make sure to check back for updates leading up to the big day on July 29th–and follow me at @hoopsdistillery on Twitter for update notifications. Also, if I’m missing a mock draft from any Draft Analysts you feel belong with these All-NBA level Draft Analysts I currently include, feel free to DM me on Twitter.
