Well I am going to give it a shot since all the “experts” are doing it. Below is my 2015 NBA Mock Draft complete with details for why the Charlotte Hornets select who they select in it. Will these picks be wrong? A good portion will be wrong more than likely. Do I care? Nope because it is all in good fun and I hope you enjoy.

Pick#1-Minnesota Timberwolves select Karl-Anthony Towns

Pick#2-Los Angeles Lakers select D’Angelo Russell

Pick#3-Philadelphia 76ers select Jahlil Okafor

  • Pick#9-Charlotte Hornets select Devon Booker

    Charlotte is in dire need of scoring after us fans watched a brick show last year from the 3 point line. I think Booker has the ceiling of a Klay Thompson and the floor of an Anthony Morrow. No doubt at the number 9 pick Morrow is not exactly the choice but if he reaches his potential (remember he is only 18 years old) he could become a great compliment to MKG.

    You do not want to stick poor shooters around MKG if that is going to be your franchise center piece. If the Hornets are smart they will pick a player that in the future can play alongside MKG to allow MKG to be MKG and not try to make him do to much at one time. I think Booker is that player although there are a few shooters in this draft who could slide that would be a better fit (Mario Hezonja and Justise Winslow).

    Pick#10-Miami Heat select Willie Cauley-Stein

    Pick#11-Indiana Pacers select Myles Turner

    Pick#12-Utah Jazz select Cameron Payne

    Pick#13-Phoenix Suns select Trey Lyles
