NBA Mock Draft Round 1
Updated 6/26 including trades

Were Listed in the DCProSports NBA Mock Draft Database

Because hey, we’re Celtics fans too!

Check out our 2009 NBA Mock Draft!

1. Chicago -Derrick Rose – PG – Memphis (FR)
Rose and Del Negro will get along real well, he might be the next version of Chris Paul.

2. Miami – OJ Mayo – SG – USC (FR)
Miami will pick Mayo and trade him, but to whom and for what? I think I hear the Knicks on the phone…

3. Minnesota – Michael Beasley – SF – Kansas St. (FR)
Yeah, the T-wolves need a lot of help, but another inside presence would be a start.

4. Seattle – Jerryd Bayless – PG – Arizona (FR)
A solid pick to team up with Durant. They should be great… in Oklahoma.

5. Memphis – FR)Brook Lopez – C – Stanford (SO)
I think they will trade out of this pick, as they may be scared of Mayo and they already have a PG or six. Lopez might be tempting though.

6. New York- Danilo Gallinari – SF – Italy
Gallinari is another strong pick to follow up with David Lee.

7. LA Clippers – Nicolas Batum – SG – France
Batum is one of those guys that gets overlooked, but I don’t think he will be. Aren’t Euros more expensive than dollars? Sterling might think twice…

8. Milwaukee – Anthony Randolph – SF – LSU (FR)
Good range and athleticism would help the lack of both by Bogut.

9. Charlotte – Eric Gordon – SG – Indiana (FR)
A steal at nine, he can sink the shots that Wallace can’t.

10. New Jersey – Robin Lopez – C – Stanford (SO)
Good rebounding and shot-blocking makes a nice compliment for the Nets at center.

11. Indiana – DeAndre Jordan – C – Texas A&M (FR)
Just as long as he can’t fight.

12. Sacramento – Russell Westbrook – PG – UCLA (SO)
Can you draft a referee? The Maloofs should think about it.

13. Portland – Darrell Arthur – PF – Kansas (SO)
Yawn.

14. Golden St. – Javale McGee – C – Nevada (SO)
Seems like a Don Nelson guy.

15. Phoenix – Kosta Koufos – C – OSU (FR)
We all know they’ll sell this pick anyway.

16. Philadelphia – Kevin Love – PF – UCLA (FR)
Philadelphia would love this kid. He should eat cheesesteaks during timeouts.

17. Toronto – Donte Greene – SF – Syracuse (FR)
Bosh needs a buddy and Greene, although green, could help in a year or two.

18. Washington – C. Douglas-Roberts – SF – Memphis (JR)
CDR has a good all-around game that will compliment Arenas. No word on his japanese cooking skills however.

19. Cleveland – Alexis Ajinca – C- France
20. Denver – Courtney Lee – SG – Western Kentucky (SR)
21. New Jersey – Jason Thompson – PF – Rider (SR)
22. Orlando – Joe Alexander – SF – WVU (JR)
23. Utah – Roy Hibbert – C – Georgetown (SR)
24. Seattle – Serge Ibaka – PF – Congo
25. Houston – DJ Augustin – PG – Texas (SO)
26. San Antonio – Brandon Rush – SF – Kansas (JR)
27. Portland – Kyle Weaver – SG – WSU (SR) (acquired from New Orleans)
28. Memphis – Ryan Anderson – PF – Cal (SO)
29. Detroit – Mario Chalmers – PG – Kansas (JR)
30. Boston – Bill Walker – PF – Kansas St. (SR)
