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 Marc Narducci’s mock draft.

1.New Orleans

Zion Williamson

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

Can Zion be the next Charles Barkley?

2. Memphis

Ja Morant

6-3, 175, PG, Murray State

Explosive athlete, and the only worry is he averaged 5.1 turnovers per game.

3. New York

R.J. Barrett

6-7, 202, SF, Duke

A versatile scorer who will have to improve his 30.3 three-point percentage in his one year at Duke.

4. New Orleans

Jarrett Culver

6-6, 194 SG, Texas Tech

This pick will go to New Orleans in the Anthony Davis trade but won’t be official by draft night. .

5. Cleveland

DeAndre Hunter

6-7, 225, SF, Virginia

The product of Philadelphia’s Friends Central will contribute on both ends of the court.

6. Phoenix

Sekou Doumbouya

6-9, 210, SF-PF, Limoges, France

He might be the most explosive athlete in the draft with a high defensive motor.

7. Chicago

Coby White

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

A player who loves to create, more for himself.

8. Atlanta

Cam Reddish

6-8, 207, SG/SF, Duke

The Westtown School product from Norristown, is ranked this high despite an inconsistent freshman season.

9. Washington

Darius Garland

6-2, 175, PG, Vanderbilt

Due to injury he only played five games in his lone season at Vanderbilt.

10. Atlanta

Jaxson Hayes

6-11, 218, C, Texas

The Hawks could package this pick to move up in the draft.

11. Minnesota

Nassir Little

6-6, 224, SF, North Carolina

The Wolves could really use a point guard, but the top ones are already gone.

12. Charlotte

Rui Hachimura

6-9, 235, SF-PF Gonzaga

He greatly improved his three-point percentage to 41.7 this past season.

13. Miami

Brandon Clarke

6-8, 207, PF, Gonzaga

Clarke may not last this long, although he only attempted 15 three point field goals this past season and must expand his game.

14. Boston

Tyler Herro

6-6, 192, SG, Kentucky.

Known as a shooter, he only shot 35.5 percent in his only season at Kentucky.

15. Detroit

P.J. Washington

6-8, 230, PF, Kentucky.

Washington improved his three-point shooting from 23.8 percent to 42.3 as a sophomore.

16. Orlando

Romeo Langford

6-6, 195, SG Indiana

He didn’t shoot well from three in his only season with the Hoosiers, but a thumb injury could have contributed to that.

17. Atlanta

Nicolas Claxton

7-0, 216, PF, Georgia

Saddled with foul trouble he totaled just seven points and three rebounds in an 81-77 loss at Temple this past season.

18. Indiana

Nickeil Alexander-Walker

6-5 ½, 203, SG, Virginia Tech.

He shot 47.4 percent from three-point range as a sophomore.

19. San Antonio

Luka Samanic

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

While this may be high for the 19-year-old, his shooting ability is off the charts and the Spurs have a strong history with international players.

20. Boston

Goga Bitadze

6-11, 250, C, Mega Bemax.

Some are suggesting he could sneak into the lottery.

21. Oklahoma City

Keldon Johnson

6-6, 216, SG-SF, Kentucky

How in the world did Kentucky fail to reach the Final Four?

22. Boston

Kevin Porter

6-5 ½, 212, SG/SF, USC.

Despite a disappointing freshman season, his athletic ability might be too difficult to pass up on.

23. Utah

Mfiondu Kabengele

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

He almost doubled his scoring average (13.2 ppg.) but is a strong defender with a 7-3 wingspan measured at the NBA combine.

24. Sixers

Cameron Johnson

6-8 ½, 205, SG-SF, North Carolina.

The Sixers may have to trade up to get this 23-year-old who is considered NBA ready.

25. Portland

Matisse Thybulle

6-5, 190, SG/SF, Washington

A senior, he is among the top defensive players in the draft.

26. Cleveland

Grant Williams

6-7 ½, 240, SF-PF, Tennessee.

The two-time SEC player of the year could also be on the Sixers radar.

27. Brooklyn

Bruno Fernando

6-10, 237, C, Maryland

His offensive game is still taking shape, but he can rebound and play D.

28. Golden State

Ty Jerome

6-5 ½, 194, PG/SG, Virginia.

All of a sudden the Warriors need a first rounder who can immediately contribute.

29. San Antonio

Dylan Windler

6-7 ½, 195, SG/SF, Belmont

He has great shooting range, but he must prove he can guard the quick 2’s and 3’s in the NBA.
