NBA 1st Round Mock Draft + Best Prop Bets

The continuation and success of the NBA season within the Orlando bubble was a godsend to most of us sports fans. Even with this being the case, it leaves the NBA in an unprecedented time crunch before their next season, beginning just next month. There has been an inability to scout for the upcoming draft, due to the lack of a true "combine" for these young athletes to showcase their skills to their potential team. Due to this, and the fact that there is no clear-cut "best player" in this year's draft, tonight should be extremely interesting and impossible to predict. Even so, here is how I believe the draft tonight should go... assuming there are no trades (which there will be). Also, some prop bets thrown in for the gamblers. Well, here we go:

1. Minnesota Timberwolves: Anthony Edwards, SG, Georgia

2. Golden State Warriors: James Wiseman, C, Memphis

3. Charlotte Hornets: LaMelo Ball, PG, New Zealand

4. Chicago Bulls: Deni Avdija, SF, Israel

5. Cleveland Cavaliers: Obi Toppin, PF, Dayton

6. Atlanta Hawks: Tyrese Haliburton, PG, Iowa State

7. Detroit Pistons: Patrick Williams, SF, Florida State

8. New York Knicks: Killian Hayes, PG, France

9. Washington Wizards: Onyeka Okongwu, C, USC

10. Phoenix Suns: Isaac Okoro, SF, Auburn

11. San Antonio Spurs: Devin Vassell, SG, Florida State

12. Sacramento Kings: Saddiq Bey, SF, Villanova

13. New Orleans Pelicans: Kira Lewis Jr., PG, Alabama

14. Boston Celtics (From Memphis): Precious Achiuwa, PF/C, Memphis

15. Orlando Magic: RJ Hampton, SG, New Zealand

16. Houston Rockets (via Portland): Aaron Nesmith, SF, Vanderbilt

17. Minnesota Timberwolves (From Brooklyn via Atlanta): Jalen Smith, PF, Maryland

18. Dallas Mavericks: Tyrese Maxey, SG, Kentucky

19. Brooklyn Nets (From Philadelphia via LA Clippers): Josh Green, SG/SF, Arizona

20. Miami Heat: Cole Anthony, PG, UNC

21. Philadelphia 76ers (From Oklahoma City via Orlando): Malachi Flynn, PG, SDSU

22. Denver Nuggets (From Houston): Aleksej Pokusevski, C, Serbia

23. New York Knicks (From Utah): Isaiah Steward, C, Washington

24. New Orleans Pelicans (From Milwaukee via Indiana): Theo Maledon, PG, France

25. Oklahoma City Thunder (From Denver): Desmond Bane, SG, TCU

26. Boston Celtics: Tre Jones, PG, Duke

27. Utah Jazz (From NYK via LAC): Jaden McDaniels, PF, Washington

28. Oklahoma City Thunder (from LAL): Leandro Bolmaro, SG/SF, Argentina

29. Toronto Raptors: Tyrell Terry, PG, Stanford

30. Boston Celtics (From Milwaukee via Phoenix): Vernon Carey Jr., C, Duke

Prop Bets:

Anthony Edwards as the 1st pick (-130)

# of Freshmen drafted in top 10 Over 4.5 (-130)
