Towns' ceiling on both ends of the court are unparalleled. His combination of size, defending and expansive offensive repertoire make him a relatively clear candidate for the first overall selection.
2. Los Angeles Lakers: D'Angelo Russell, PG, Ohio State
Los Angeles will be tempted to draft Jahlil Okafor here, but with Kevin Love and DeMarcus Cousins being its primary offseason targets -- and Russell's stock soaring -- point guard may be the way to go here.
3. Philadelphia 76ers: Jahlil Okafor, C, Duke
There's been no shortage of hype over Kristaps Prozingis here, but if Okafor is on the board at No. 3, we'd be surprised if Philly doesn't take the Duke center. Sam Hinkie has always been into asset collecting, regardless the position, so the overcrowded frontcourt isn't as much of an issue as it'd be elsewhere.
4. New York Knicks: Willie Cauley-Stein, C, Kentucky
This may be the most interesting pick in the draft. The Knicks have needs everywhere, but Phil Jackson's recent comments make it sound like they're into adding a defensive-minded big man. There's no better one in this draft than Cauley-Stein.
5. Orlando Magic: Kristaps Porzingis, PF, Latvia
Porzingis shouldn't slide past the top five picks. With Orlando, on a roster filled with smaller players who don't shoot that well, he slides in perfectly.
Nobody has any idea what the Kings are up to these days, but Emmanuel Mudiay is too hot of a prospect to fall last No. 6. Even if they trade for Ty Lawson, Mudiay's another asset for them to stash.
7. Denver Nuggets: Justise Winslow, SF, Duke
With Michael Malone at the helm -- a defensive-minded head coach -- don't be surprised if the great wing defender gets nabbed here. Danilo Gallinari and Wilson Chandler are both occupying wing spots, but with Denver in constant trade rumors already this summer, the roster could look different by opening night.
10. Miami Heat: Mario Hezonja, SF, Croatia
Most likely terrified at the thought of losing Dwyane Wade via free agency, Pat Riley will want to grab a scorer at No. 10. Hezonja is picking up some steam entering draft night, and his personality would be welcomed in a big-market city.
11. Indiana Pacers: Myles Turner, C, Texas
Indy would love Willie Cauley-Stein here -- as they look to move on from Roy Hibbert and grab a mobile center. Turner is a bit of a project, but can protect the rim while spacing the floor on offense.
12. Utah Jazz: Frank Kaminsky, C, Wisconsin
It will be hard for the Jazz to pass up Kaminsky at No. 12. Their frontcourt is talented, in Derrick Favors and Rudy Gobert, but neither are capable of much offense outside of the paint. Kaminsky instantly solves this issue.
13. Phoenix Suns: Trey Lyles, PF, Kentucky
The way Lyles fits into modern-day offenses is worth talking about, but he's very polished offensively from inside the arc. Phoenix could use an offensive boost up front, and Lyles is a candidate to provide it.
15. Atlanta Hawks: R.J. Hunter, SG, Georgia State
Mike Budenholzer can always use more shooting, and that's Hunter's forte. Hunter's jumper isn't the prettiest, but it may be the best of all players in this year's class. Staying close to home in Georgia wouldn't hurt, either.
16. Boston Celtics: Bobby Portis, PF, Arkansas
Portis, with his grind-it-out attitude and great length, would help Brad Stevens' squad out on both ends of the court.
17. Milwaukee Bucks: Kelly Oubre, SF, Kansas
Milwaukee could use more shooting, and the swingman's 7'2" wingspan helps him on the defensive end -- much like Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton.
18. Houston Rockets: Tyus Jones, PG, Duke
Houston is desperate for point guard depth, and don't have many other glaring needs on the horizon. Picking up a backup point man at No. 18 isn't a bad move here.
19. Washington Wizards: Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, SF, Arizona
The forward has worked out for Washington before the draft, and could step in and fill the void left by Paul Pierce should the veteran leave the team. His impressive defensive ability would undoubtedly boost the Wizards' chances.
20. Toronto Raptors: Sam Dekker, SF, Wisconsin
After a disappointing second half to last season, the Raptors can use a boost on the offensive end. Inserting Dekker into a lineup with Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan could create a very versatile Toronto attack.
After the Rajon Rondo experiment failed miserably, the Mavs are now desperate for help at the point. If Grant slips down this far, it's a no-brainer.
22. Chicago Bulls: Rashad Vaughn, SG, UNLV
Under Fred Hoiberg, the Bulls figure to include much more three-point shooting in the years to come. Drafting Vaughn would be a clear signal.
26. San Antonio Spurs: Guillermo Hernangomez, C, Spain
The Spurs are known for their openness to international talent, and have a need in the frontcourt with Tim Duncan's career coming to a close very soon and Tiago Splitter aging as well. He passes well and has good fundamentals to work with, including some sound post moves. Under San Antonio's structure, this could be a high-upside pick.
27. Los Angeles Lakers: Justin Anderson, SF, Virginia
Anderson has good size as an NBA swingman and great value at No. 27. He has the capability of scoring from anywhere on the floor and can defend well, but consistency is a concern.
29. Brooklyn Nets: Delon Wright, PG, Utah
Deron Williams' days as an NBA difference maker at the point seem to be over. It'd be wise for the Nets to throw some more talent into the position -- if for no other reason than to challenge Williams.
30. Golden State Warriors: Terry Rozier, PG, Louisville
A scoring guard in college, his shoot-first mentality often got the best of him with Louisville. In a bench role, this would be more welcomed -- and Steve Kerr would have the chance to groom the point man into a more stable option.

25. Anthony Bennett
We're trying to hold judgement given he's still just 22 years old, but it's not looking too bright for former No. 1 overall pick, Anthony Bennett. The Cavaliers dealt him to Minnesota in the Kevin Love trade, and after averaging five points per game over 57 contests last season, the forward is on the trading block again. It's unfortunate that Cleveland selected him in a position he had no business going, and ruining his mental stability in the process.
24. Derrick Williams
Thought of in the same breath as Kyrie Irving during the months leading up to the 2011 draft, Derrick Williams eventually got scooped up at No. 2 by the Minnesota Timberwolves. The freakishly athletic forward has never been able to make his talent translate to the pro game after dominating at Arizona. He's on his second NBA team, averaging nine points over his first four years.
23. Robert Traylor
A sixth-overall selection, Robert "Tractor" Traylor never amounted to the star Milwaukee drafted him to be. He spent just a pair of seasons with the Bucks, averaging 4.5 points in 13 minutes before moving on to the Cavaliers and Hornets. One of the league's most imposing figures averaged five points over his seven pro seasons.
22. Jared Jeffries
"Mr. Basketball" in Indiana during his high school days, Jared Jeffries was the 11th overall pick in the 2002 draft by the Wizards. He actually managed to bust twice, averaging just six points and five rebounds with the Wizards, then garnering a five-year, $30 million deal from the Knicks -- where he posted even lesser numbers.
21. Joe Smith
And to think the Timberwolves went out of their way to sign this guy to an illegal contract. The 1995 No. 1 pick got off to a fine start over this first three year swith the Warriors, but it was all down hill from there. Joe Smith spent 16 years in the league with 13 different teams, averaging 11 points and six rebounds. Not bad, but for a first-overall pick, not good.
18. Michael Sweetney
Even in the famed 2003 draft class, the Knicks still managed to disappoint with their ninth-overall selection of Georgetown big man Mike Sweetney. Listed at 275 pounds as a rookie, Sweetney ballooned to 450 by the twilight of his NBA days with the Celtics. In two years with the Knicks, he averaged seven points and five rebounds.
12. Jonny Flynn
The second of three point guards not named Stephen Curry selected by Minnesota in 2009, Jonny Flynn was taken with the sixth overall pick. Flynn held down the point guard position in Minnesota during the late 2000s, and it didn't go as planned. The Syracuse product actually performed so-so in his rookie year, when he started 81 games, but tailed off dramatically after. He's been out of the league since 2012.
11. Joe Alexander
Going eighth overall in 2008 out of West Virginia, Joe Alexander showed us one of the most swift exits from the NBA ever. After a sub-par rookie season in Milwaukee, he was shipped out to the Bulls, where he eight games in 2009-10 before falling out of the league all together.
4. Adam Morrison
The mustached man out of Gonzaga lasted just four years in the pros before falling out of the league, averaging just 11.5 minutes per game after his rookie season. But the 6'8" forward is a two-time NBA champion, watching from the bench as his Lakers teams won back-to-back titles in 2009 and 2010.
2. Sam Bowie
With Michael Jordan still on the board in 1984, Portland selected then-promising big man Sam Bowie with the second overall pick. Battling injuries, he played in just 139 games over five years, posting 10.5 points and 8.1 rebounds over his Blazers tenure. He spent more than a decade in the league as a serviceable role player, but will rest in basketball lore as one of the biggest busts in sports history -- thanks to MJ.
1. Darko Milicic
Reaffirming every NBA team's fear of drafting relatively unknown European players, Darko Milicic was famously selected second overall in 2003 by Detroit. Just after LeBron James, and right before Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. He'd last just two-plus seasons there, leaving Pistons fans wondering how much successful their already-great teams of the mid-2000s could've been.
