The NBA draft begins at 7 p.m. on Thursday at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The Pelicans ended up with the first overall pick after last month’s NBA draft lottery.

How will it all shake out? Take a look at Keith Pompey’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.

2. Memphis

Ja Morant

6-3, 175, PG, Murray State

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

3. New York

R.J. Barrett

6-7, 202, SF, Duke

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

DeAndre Hunter

6-7, 225, SF, Virginia

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.

7. Chicago

Coby White

6-5, 191, PG-SG, North Carolina

Like with Phoenix, the Bulls are elated to fill a major need with in this case an electrifying player.

8. Atlanta

Cam Reddish

6-8, 207, SG-SF, Duke

The Hawks hope the Norristown native is the steal of the draft.

9. Washington

Sekou Doumbouya

6-9, 230, SF-PF, Limoges, France

The Wizards know Doumbouya could develop into a star in some time and didn’t want to pass up on that.

10. Atlanta

Jaxson Hayes

6-11, 218, C, Texas

After selecting a wing player at 8, it makes perfect since to select a center that can play alongside power forward Jon Collins.

11. Minnesota

Brandon Clarke

6-8, 207, PF, Gonzaga

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

12. Charlotte

Kevin Porter

6-5 ½, 212, SG/SF, USC

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

13. Miami

Nassir Little

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.

14. Boston

Goga Bitadze

6-11, 250, C, Mega Bemax

This move was all about the Celtics have a solid center to provide depth.

15. Detroit

Romeo Langford

6-6, 195, SG Indiana

The Pistons believe they are getting a lottery talent in Langford, who’s overcoming a torn ligament in his shooting hard.

16. Orlando

Tyler Herro

6-6, 192, SG, Kentucky

The Magic can never have enough shooters and this was the best-player-available pick.

17. Atlanta

P.J. Washington

6-8, 230, PF, Kentucky

The Hawks were determined to find someone to fit in with the wing and center they scooped up while adding depth from the bench.

18. Indiana

Nickeil Alexander-Walker

6-5 ½, 203, SG, Virginia Tech

The hope is that Alexander-Walker can step in and assume the role that Chester’s Tyreke Evans had for them last season.

19. San Antonio

Rui Hachimura

6-8, 230, PF, Gonzaga

With LaMarcus Aldridge turning 34 next month, this move was about finding a player that will ultimately be his replacement.

20. Boston

Ty Jerome

6-5, 194, SG, Virginia

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

21. Oklahoma City

Keldon Johnson

6-6, 216, SG, Kentucky

Johnson is a safe pick for the Thunder with his three-and-D potential and high motor.

22. Boston

Mfiondu Kabengele

6-10, 256, PF-C, Florida State

In Kabengele, the Celtics get a replacement for Philly’s Marcus Morris assuming he leaves in free agency.

23. Utah

Luka Samanic

6-11, 227, PF-C, Olimpija Ljubljana

The Jazz were intrigued by Samanic’s skillset and believe he could eventually become of the best players in the draft.

24. Sixers

Cameron Johnson

6-8 ½, 205, SG-SF, North Carolina

In Johnson, the Sixers get the best pure shooter in the draft.

25. Portland

Grant Williams

6-7 ½, 240, SF-PF, Tennessee

The two-time SEC player of the year will fit in perfectly with Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum.

26. Cleveland

Nicolas Claxton

7-0, 216, PF, Georgia

Claxton is someone that really helped himself with solid predraft workouts and could develop into a playmaker.

27. Brooklyn

Matisse Thybulle

6-5, 190, SG-SF, Washington

While his shot needs work, the Nets get the best perimeter defender in the draft.

28. Golden State

Eric Paschall

6-7, 254, F, Villanova

The former Wildcats standout will have an immediate impact for the Warriors due to his defensive versatility and three-point range.

29. San Antonio

Bruno Fernando

6-10, 237, C, Maryland

He addresses a need for the Spurs and could have an instant impact.

30. Milwaukee

Dylan Windler

6-7 ½, 195, SG-SF, Belmont

Windler’s shooting ability was too much for the Bucks to pass up especially with Nikola Mirotic becoming an unrestricted free agent.
