In our latest NBA Mock Draft, the Oklahoma City Thunder make a surprise pick at No. 4 and Jalen Green falls out of the top 5.
As we inch closer to the 2021 NBA Draft, we’ve gotten an even clearer picture of what we can expect on draft night. Tiebreakers have been decided and the pre-lottery order has now been set. Though plenty can change on NBA Draft Lottery night, we’ll explore our next mock draft with the order that we currently have.
It should give us a better picture of how the draft could possibly unravel. We begin with the Houston Rockets selecting at No. 1.
1. Houston Rockets – Cade Cunningham, G, Oklahoma State
At this point, it would be extremely surprising if the No. 1 pick in the 2021 NBA DRaft wasn’t Cade Cunningham. He seems to have locked up the No. 1 spot for the time being. Of course, that could change during pre-draft workouts and such, especially if the team selecting at the top falls in love with another prospect.
Cunningham is probably the closest thing to a sure thing at the top of this draft.
