The Cleveland Cavaliers are acquiring Ricky Rubio, a 2022 second-round pick and cash for Taurean Prince.

1. Detroit Pistons – Cade Cunningham

Coming into tonight’s draft, the Detroit Pistons took some time to think about who they wanted to select. It was rumored earlier today that Cade Cunningham would be the selection. Adam Silver makes the pick official as Cade Cunningham out of Oklahoma State goes No. 1 overall. Cunningham will be the man that will lead the rebuild started before the 2020 season.

2. Houston Rockets – Jalen Green

A surprising pick here because that means Jalen Suggs has fallen out of the Top 4. Barnes averaged 10 points, 4 rebounds for the Seminoles. He is versatile defender. An NBA Comparison is Draymond Green.

5. Orlando Magic – Jalen Suggs

The Magic have been in a rebuild for quite some time, and they traded away Aaron Gordon this last season. So the Magic will draft Jalen Suggs. The Magic drafted Cole Antony last season, so the pick pairs Suggs up with Anthony and Jonathan Isaac. Suggs or Anthony could be moved to SG.

6. Oklahoma City Thunder – Josh Giddey

The Oklahoma City Thunder make Giddey the first NBA Academy graduate to be drafted. Giddey is the 5th Australian born player, and the first since Ben Simmons in the lottery. Giddey would slide to SF with SGA at the SG. The Thunder are still looking for a PG, C, and PF in their rebuild.

The second pick out of the NBA G- League. He is an Elite Athlete, and Versatile Defender. An All-around player who could slot in at either SF or PF. The Warriors were trying to trade this pick.

8. Orlando Magic (Via CHI) – Franz Wagner

The brother of Mo Wagner, who plays for the Magic. The Wagner brothers will have a chance to play together. Franz has been drafted higher then Moritz. The Magic have possibly drafted their future Center.

Drafted out of Baylor, Mitchell is a Tenacious Defender and Relentless Driver. He helped lead Baylor to the College Basketball Championship.

10. New Orleans Pelicans – Ziaire Williams

Rounding out the Top 10, the New Orleans Pelicans take some shooting at the guard position. Something the Pelicans have lacked outside of Brandon Ingram. The Pelicans will pair Williams and Williamson.

11. Charlotte Hornets – James Bouknight

The Hornets are taking the Guard out of UConn. Bouknight played with Cole Anthony in AAU ball, and fits the mold of an NBA Shooting Guard.

12. San Antonio Spurs – Josh Primo

The Spurs drafted the youngest player. Primo is a versatile shotmaker who could take the league by storm.

13. Indiana Pacers – Chris Duarte

The former Duck goes 13, and he becomes the oldest player in the NBA Draft. A very versatile shooter out of Oregon, he can play multiple positions.
