David Murphy’s mock draft | Marc Narducci’s mock draft | Sarah Todd’s mock draft

1. New Orleans

Zion Williamson

6-foot-7, 285 pounds, PF, Duke

This may be the easiest draft pick in the history of the franchise.

Morant is the perfect replacement for Mike Conley, who is being shopped by the Grizzlies.

Barrett is a great consolation prize for a Knicks squad and fan base that coveted Williamson.

4. New Orleans

Jarrett Culver

6-6, 194 SG, Texas Tech

Culver, who has potential to be a star, should fit in perfectly with the new-look Pelicans.

5. Cleveland

The smart and versatile Philly native is a nice addition for a Cavs team in the second year of a rebuild.

6. Phoenix

Darius Garland

6-2, 175, PG, Vanderbilt

Garland fills a major position need and could form a dynamic duo with Devon Booker.

Clarke can be a solid replacement for Taj Gibson who will become a free agent at 6 p.m. on June 30.

The Hornets gamble on a guy with Top 5 talent, but also served a team suspension at USC.

6-6, 224, SF, North Carolina

Little wasn’t the right personality fit at UNC, but the Heat aren’t concerned due to having the right system and team culture.

The Celtics select Jerome to space the floor and play alongside their athletic wings.
