The First Pick of the 2016 NBA Draft Goes To…


Nerlens Noel will be joined by either Ben Simmons or Brandon Ingram for the 2016-17 season.  This lottery was an uneventful one, without any changes in the draft order.  A look at where the teams will choose in the June 23rd draft…

1. Philadelphia 76ers
2. L.A. Lakers
3. Boston Celtics
4. Phoenix Suns
5. Minnesota Timberwolves
6. New Orleans Pelicans
7. Denver Nuggets
8. Sacramento Kings
9. Toronto Raptors
10. Milwaukee Bucks
11. Orlando Magic
12. Utah Jazz
13. Phoenix Suns
14. Chicago
15. Denver (via Houston)
16. Boston (via Dallas)
17. Memphis
18. Detroit
19. Denver (via Portland)
20. Indiana
21. Atlanta
22. Charlotte
23. Boston
24. Philadelphia (via Miami, via Cleveland)
25. L.A. Clippers
26. Philadelphia (via Oklahoma City, via Denver and Cleveland)
27. Toronto
28. Phoenix (via Cleveland, via Boston)
29. San Antonio
30. Golden State.

The Best Case Scenario for the BBN: Jamal Murray is selected either 5th or 6th to join Towns or Davis, and Tyler Ulis goes home to Chicago with the 14th pick.

    I would think Ingram would be the best pick for the 76ers.
