2015 NBA Mock Draft Picks 1-5

1. Minnesota Timberwolves: Karl Anthony Towns

The Timberwolves could use a front court running mate for Nikola Pekovic. As the season progressed Karl Anthony Towns continued to develop, he moved into the conversations surrounding the top pick. I still think Jahlil Okafor is the best prospect in the draft but Karl Anthony Towns is a better fit for the Timberwolves.

2. Los Angeles Lakers: Jahlil Okafor

Jahlil Okafor is a terrific back-to-the-basket post scorer who knows how to carve out space inside with his wide body. He would be a building block inside for a Lakers franchise in need of a spark.

3. Philadelphia 76ers: D'Angelo Russell

The Philadelphia 76ers have developed their front court drafting Nerlons Noel, Dario Saric, and Joel Embid in the past 2 years, but they still have a huge gap to fill in their back court especially since they traded Michael Carter Williams. D'Angelo Russell is a lefty combo guard who is a
great scorer whether he's slashing to the bucket or shooting it from deep, plus he can even distribute the rock when running the point.

4. New York Knicks: Emmanuel Mudiay

Emmanuel Mudiay was supposed to play his freshman season at SMU but instead ended up playing professionally at China. He has NBA size and strength. This would be a good pick for a team in need of a spark.

5. Orlando Magic: Kristaps Porzingis

Kristaps Porzingis is a very skilled big man. The Magic have strong talent at the 1 through 5 so the organization should take the best prospect on the board which is arguably Porzingis. He is a unique player and with him Nikola Vucevic (Orlando's franchise center and player) and Aaron Gordon, the Orlando Magic would have the best young set of young big men.

Signing Off.....
