The NBA Draft is set for Thursday, June 25, and the Warriors have the 30th overall pick. Insider Monte Poole breaks down the first round in his NBA Mock Draft.
1) Timberwolves: C/F Karl-Anthony Towns (7-0, 250), Kentucky.
Comment: His skills recreate visions of Kevin Garnett or Chris Bosh.
2) Lakers: C Jahlil Okafor (6-11, 270), Duke.
Comment: Put him on the block and he could be a 20-10 guy for years to come.
3) 76ers: PG D’Angelo Russell (6-5, 200), Ohio State.
Comment: The Sixers are nutty, but not enough to bypass this dynamic floor general.
4) Knicks: Kristaps Porzingis (7-0, 220), Latvia.
Comment: The next Dirk Nowitzki if he’s not devoured by the New York soap opera.
5) Magic: SG Mario Hezonja (6-7, 200), Barcelona, Spain.
Comment: Spectacular offensive potential. He’s only 20, so Orlando must be patient.
6) Kings: PG Emmanuel Mudiay (6-5, 200), China.
Comment: Why shouldn’t wacky Sac consider the 19-year-old with big potential?

7) Nuggets: SG Justise Winslow (6-7, 225), Duke.
Comment: The Nuggets need a lot, including a new leader. Winslow is built for this.
8) Pistons: SF Sam Dekker (6-9, 220), Wisconsin.
Comment: The Pistons need true wing firepower. This guy is capable of delivering.
9) Hornets: C/F Myles Turner (7-0, 240), Texas.
Comment: A solid rebounder, but I don’t buy the LaMarcus Aldridge comparisons.
10) Heat: SF Stanley Johnson (6-7, 240), Arizona.
Comment: If Miami can be patient, this one-and-done stud has the gifts to be a star.
11) Pacers: C Willie Cauley-Stein (7-1, 240), Kentucky.
Comment: Can’t shoot, but he’ll be an elite rim protector the minute he suits up.
12) Jazz: PF Bobby Portis (6-11, 242), Arkansas.
Comment: There is a place in the NBA for blue-collar big men who grind in the paint.
13) Suns: PF Frank Kaminsky (6-11, 234), Wisconsin.
Comment: He’ll show doubters that skill and savvy can offset his lack of quickness.
14) Thunder: SF Kelly Oubre (6-7, 205), Kansas.
Comment: Long, ready-made defender in search of a complete offensive game.
15) Hawks: SG Devin Booker (6-6, 210), Kentucky.
Comment: A dangerous scorer who either can’t or won’t play consistent defense.
16) Celtics: Anthony Brown (6-7, 210), Stanford.
Comment: Celtics have a few players but could use a legitimate shooter.
17) Bucks: PF Trey Lyles (6-9, 235), Kentucky.
Comment: Solid and rugged big man who is comfortable mixing up in the paint.
18) Rockets: PG Delon Wright (6-5, 185), Utah.
Comment: A scoring point, capable of controlling flow. Reads the floor like a veteran.
19) Wizards: SF Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (6-7, 220), Arizona.
Comment: Draymond Green’s fire, Harrison Barnes’ athleticism, but a poor shooter.
20) Raptors: PF Montrezl Harrell (6-8, 240), Louisville.
Comment: Good athlete, high motor, average shot. I buy the Kenneth Faried comps.
21) Mavericks: PG Cameron Payne (6-2, 185), Murray State.
Comment: Light in the shorts, but a coach on the floor with a crafty scoring touch.
22) Bulls: PF Christian Wood (6-11, 220), UNLV.
Comment: Good athlete with a nice shot, but very raw. He’ll need time to develop.
23) Trail Blazers: PF Kevon Looney (6-9, 225), UCLA.
Comment: Big wingspan (7-3) and determined, but still developing his physique.
24) Cavaliers: SG Justin Anderson (6-6, 225), Virginia.
Comment: Strong defender and good leader but needs to fix his jumper.
25) Grizzlies: PF Jarell Martin (6-10, 245), LSU.
Comment: Good athlete brings his hard hat but his game needs offensive polish.
26) Spurs: C Guillermo Hernangomez (6-11, 240), Real Madrid.
Comment: Risky, and can’t dismiss the possibility of Duke PG Tyus Jones going here.
27) Lakers: SG Rashad Vaughn (6-5, 210), UNLV.
Comment: He already knows how to score. At 18, he needs time to round out talents.
28) Celtics: PG Jerian Grant (6-5, 205), Notre Dame.
Comment: Son of former NBA player Harvey Grant is really a combo guard.
29) Nets: PF Jonathan Holmes (6-8, 240), Texas.
Comment: Capable of playing either forward position, but still learning both.
30) Warriors: SG R.J. Hunter (6-6, 185), Georgia State.
Comment: Smart, skinny -- and with the deadly outside shot the Warriors love.
