NBA mock draft by The Bee's Jason Jones:
PICKING ROUND 1
NERLENS NOEL, C, Kentucky
If Cleveland can't find a small forward in a trade, it will go with a big man with upside.
VICTOR OLADIPO, G, Indiana
If Orlando lands Eric Bledsoe in a trade, it can go with an athletic shooting guard.
OTTO PORTER, F, Georgetown
Some say he is most NBA-ready prospect; not spectacular but a solid player.
ALEX LEN, C, Maryland
Possibly the most polished center available would be another piece for Charlotte.
ANTHONY BENNETT, F, UNLV
There are questions about whether he's a small or power forward, but Phoenix needs help at both spots.
TREY BURKE, G, Michigan
The national Player of the Year could help spark the offense and allow Austin Rivers to play shooting guard.
C.J. McCOLLUM, G, Lehigh
The Kings could go several different ways but opt for the best shooter.
BEN McLEMORE, G, Kansas
The freshman sees his slide end with a team looking for perimeter scoring to complement its young bigs.
SHABAZZ MUHAMMAD, F/G, UCLA
A crafty scorer who will benefit playing with a skilled passer like Ricky Rubio.
10. TRAIL BLAZERS
KENTAVIOUS CALDWELL-POPE, G, Georgia
The young guard would add depth if Portland doesn't add size to help LaMarcus Aldridge.
CODY ZELLER, F/C, Indiana
Philadelphia starts fresh up front, moving on from the Andrew Bynum era that never was.
STEVEN ADAMS, C, Pittsburgh
He's raw offensively, but Oklahoma City doesn't need him immediately and can let him develop.
MICHAEL CARTER-WILLIAMS, G, Syracuse
If Dallas keeps the pick, it would be thrilled to see Carter-Williams still available this late.
KELLY OLYNYK, F/C, Gonzaga
Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap are free agents, so Utah will need to add size.
ALLEN CRABBE, G, Cal
Monta Ellis and Brandon Jennings are free agents; a scorer like Crabbe or a point guard both make sense.
RUDY GOBERT, C, France
Boston is in flux and could be in full rebuilding mode next season. Gobert would be a nice piece for the future.
DENNIS SCHROEDER, G, Germany
Atlanta looks overseas for help, though Schroeder might not contribute next season.
MASON PLUMLEE, F, Duke
Josh Smith is a free agent, and it might be time to move on; Plumlee could help off the bench as a rookie.
SERGEY KARASEV, F, Russia
Cleveland finds help on the perimeter with its second first-round pick.
TIM HARDAWAY JR., G, Michigan
Chicago still needs scoring on the perimeter; Hardaway would be a big guard (6-foot-6) off the bench.
LUCAS NOGUEIRA, C, Brazil
Not the strongest big man, but he could become an elite defender and shot blocker.
ISAIAH CANAAN, G, Murray State
A scoring point guard who could provide a spark behind Deron Williams, learn from coach Jason Kidd.
REGGIE BULLOCK, F, North Carolina
Another player to bolster the perimeter and complement a bruising front line.
JAMAAL FRANKLIN, G, San Diego State
New York finds value - and protection if J.R. Smith does not re-sign.
TONY MITCHELL, F, North Texas
If Caron Butler is traded to Orlando, Mitchell has the tools to contribute sooner than most rookies.
GIANNIS ANTETOKOUNMPO, F, Greece
A raw talent who could stay overseas to develop; Minnesota would need to seek immediate help with a veteran.
TONY SNELL, G/F, New Mexico
Potential to be a good shooter and size for his position gets Snell into the first round.
GORGUI DIENG, C, Louisville
Dieng is known as a defender, which would be fine in San Antonio.
SHANE LARKIN, G, Miami
Oklahoma City finds great value in a player who was a leader for the Hurricanes.
MIKE MUSCALA, C, Bucknell
An aging front line from last season gets younger with a skilled big man who can shoot from the perimeter.
