  • All the draft hopefuls have made their way to the stage of the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. NBA Commissioner Adam Silver is moments away from kicking off the start of the draft.
  • The Detroit Pistons are now on the clock with the first overall pick.
  • Pick No. 1: With the first pick of the 2021 NBA Draft, the Detroit Pistons select guard Cade Cunningham of Oklahoma State.
  • Cunningham was long considered the 'lock' to go number one overall in this year's draft. He's a 6-foot-8 inch player who primarily played point guard as the Cowboys' best scorer, and best distributor.
  • The Houston Rockets are now on the clock with the second overall pick.
  • Pick No. 2: With the second pick of the 2021 NBA Draft, the Houston Rockets select guard Jalen Green of G-League Ignite.
  • Green was an interesting prospect who rose quickly as draft day approached. He's a 6-foot-5, maybe 6-foot-6 inch guard who has traits of both point and shooting guards.
  • The Cleveland Cavaliers are now on the clock with the third overall pick.
  • The analysts on ESPN's draft set compared him to Zach Levine, but he's a "better scorer at this point," according to analyst Richard Jefferson.
  • Pick No. 3: With the third pick of the 2021 NBA Draft, the Cleveland Cavaliers select center Evan Mobley of Southern California. 
  • "Evan Mobley is a future star." - Jay Bilas
  • According to Kendrick Perkins, Mobley needs to "buy in" to being a post presence and player, though Bilas says his outside shot is strong given his 7-foot frame.
  • The Toronto Raptors are on the clock with the fourth overall pick.
  • Pick No. 4: With the fourth pick of the 2021 NBA Draft, the Toronto Raptors select forward Scottie Barnes of Florida State.
  • Bilas calls Barnes an "unselfish" player who's the "ultimate glue guy."

  • The Orlando Magic are on the clock with the fifth overall pick.
  • Pick No. 5: With the fifth pick of the 2021 NBA Draft, the Orlando Magic select guard Jalen Suggs of Gonzaga.
  • "He is indeed 'Mr. Everything'" - Rece Davis, referencing Suggs' dual-sport potential out of high school.
  • Bilas: Suggs has a "high IQ for making winning plays."
  • Perkins notes that Suggs' All-State-level quarterback play in high school will help him as a guard in the NBA, especially in being able to read the floor. Referenced Hall of Fame guard Allen Iverson as an example of that.
  • The Oklahoma City Thunder are now on the clock with the sixth pick.
  • Pick No. 6: With the sixth pick of the 2021 NBA Draft, the Oklahoma City Thunder select guard Josh Giddey of Australia. 
  • Schmitz: "You could argue that he's the smartest player of the entire draft."
  • Giddey is a 6-foot-7 inch international prospect who is best compared to the Mavericks' All-NBA guard Luka Doncic.
  • The Golden State Warriors are now on the clock with the seventh overall pick.
  • Pick No. 7: With the seventh pick of the 2021 NBA Draft, the Golden State Warriors select forward Jonathan Kuminga of the G-League Ignite.

  • The Orlando Magic are now on the clock with the eighth overall pick.
  • Pick No. 8: With the eighth pick of the 2021 NBA Draft, the Orlando Magic select forward Franz Wagner of Michigan.
  • "He's a long-armed versatile defender," says Bilas, who always says his offensive game is impressive for his size, with the ability to handle the ball and act as a playmaker.
  • Wagner is the younger brother of Mo Wagner, who also played at Michigan and is a member of the Magic.
  • The Sacramento Kings are now on the clock with the ninth overall pick.
  • Pick No. 9: With the ninth overall pick, the Sacramento Kings select guard Davion Mitchell of Baylor.
  • Mitchell began his college career at Auburn, before transferring to the reigning national champion Baylor Bears. 
  • "He is relentless, and it is hard to beat relentless," says Bilas, who also calls him a "suffocating" defender.
  • The New Orleans Pelicans are now on the clock with the 10th overall pick. This pick will be sent to the Memphis Grizzlies as part of a trade made with New Orleans days before the draft.
  • Pick No. 10: With the 10th pick of the 2021 NBA Draft, the New Orleans Pelicans select forward Ziaire Williams of Stanford.
  • Bilas says his size, athleticism, and ability to make shots is intriguing as a lottery pick. But "his numbers didn't reflect" what many viewed him as before last season.
  • The Charlotte Hornets are now on the clock with the 11th overall pick.
  • Pick No. 11: With the 11th overall pick of the 2021 NBA Draft, the Charlotte Hornets select guard James Bouknight of Connecticut. 
  • The UConn guard averaged 18.7 points per game and 5.7 rebounds per game last season in 15 games.

  • The San Antonio Spurs are now on the clock with the 12th overall pick.
  • Pick No. 12: With the 12th pick of the 2021 NBA Draft, the San Antonio Spurs select guard Joshua Primo of Alabama.
  • A "do-it-all guard" with "great potential" - Bilas
  • Primo was the youngest player in DI basketball last season, and he's the youngest draft pick of 2021.
  • Alabama coach Nate Oats on the Paul Finebaum Show: “I’ve got a GM of one of the better teams in the NBA shot me a text an hour or so ago," Oats said. "They’re looking to talk to me about Primo, and they’re a late, first-round pick. He’s one of those guys that they’re gonna project how good can he be, and that’s what they want to know — how good could he be in two or three years? And I think he’s got a ton of upside because he’s got a ton of upside and he’s gonna get there. He’s a long, athletic guard that makes shots at a high level.”
  • Bilas on Primo: "I was very impressed with the way he played at the combine," ESPN analyst Jay Bilas told reporters on Tuesday. "He's a good catch-and-shoot guy. I liked him a lot, and with the way he defended, as well, and he showed he could handle it, which I honestly wasn't sure that he projected necessarily as an initiating or handling guard.
  • The Indiana Pacers are now on the clock with the 13th overall pick.
  • Pick No. 13: With the 13th pick of the 2021 NBA Draft, the Indiana Pacers select guard Chris Duarte of Oregon.

  • The Golden State Warriors are now on the clock with the 14th overall pick.
  • Pick No. 14: With the 14th pick of the 2021 NBA Draft, the Golden State Warriors select guard Moses Moody of Arkansas.
  • Moody is a long, athletic prospect who is praised by many for his versatility, defense, and on-court maturity despite being a freshman in college last season.
  • "He's used to playing a role," Schmitz says, as he points to having a defined role in joining a Warriors team featuring All-NBA guards Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.
  • The NBA and commissioner Adam Silver announce former Kentucky guard, the late Terrance Clarke, as an honorary draft pick after he was involved in a fatal automobile wreck this offseason. His family is on stage, and to honor Clarke, those in attendance are chanting his name in remembrance.
  • The Washington Wizards are now on the clock with the 15th overall pick. The 14th pick is the end of the lottery portion of the draft.
  • Pick No. 15: With the 15th pick of the 2021 NBA Draft, the Washington Wizards select forward Corey Kispert of Gonzaga.
  • Kispert was a 2020-21 Consensus All-American on the national runner-up, and he finished with a 44% mark from 3-point range.
  • Known as arguably the top shooter in this year's draft, after a four-year college career.
  • Schmitz points to Kispert's defined role of a marksman shooter as something that will help him contribute early in the NBA.
  • The Oklahoma City Thunder are now on the clock with the 16th overall pick.
  • OKC has traded this pick to the Houston Rockets in exchange for a later pick. The Thunder will still be selecting here.
  • Pick No. 16: With the 16th pick of the 2021 NBA Draft, the Oklahoma City Thunder select center Alperen Sengun of Turkey.
  • Sengun is known as one of the most skilled big men of the draft, and as Schmitz says, the comparison to Nuggets center and 2021 NBA MVP Nikola Jokic is valid considering his skillset.
  • The Memphis Grizzlies are now on the clock with the 17th overall pick.
  • Pick No. 17: With the 17th pick of the 2021 NBA Draft, the Memphis Grizzlies select forward Trey Murphy III of Virginia.

  • Pick No. 19: With the 19th pick of the 2021 NBA Draft, the New York Knicks select forward Kai Jones of Texas.
  • He was a track & field athlete before first playing basketball as a high school player.
  • Arriving from the Bahamas, Jones is promising as a prospect, but he's also considered to be one of the rawest players in this year's draft in terms of refinement. 
  • Mobility and offensive potential are thought to be Jones' biggest tools heading into the NBA. 
  • The Atlanta Hawks are now on the clock with the 20th overall pick.
  • Pick No. 20: With the 20th pick of the 2021 NBA Draft, the Atlanta Hawks select forward Jalen Johnson of Duke.

  • Pick No. 21: With the 20th pick of the 2021 NBA Draft, the New York Knicks select guard Keon Johnson of Tennessee.
  • Set an NBA Combine record with a 48-inch vertical jump.
  • Averaged 11.3 points per game and 3.5 rebounds per game last season at Tennessee.

  • The Knicks have traded the No. 21 pick, Johnson, to the Los Angeles Clippers in exchange for the 25th pick.
  • The Los Angeles Lakers are now on the clock with the 22nd overall pick, which will be sent to the Indiana Pacers via the Washington Wizards.
  • Pick No. 22: With the 22nd pick of the 2021 NBA Draft, the Los Angeles Lakers select forward Isaiah Jackson of Kentucky.

  • Schmitz says Jackson has the quickest second jump that he's ever seen as a draft analyst.
  • The Houston Rockets are now on the clock with the 23rd overall pick.
  • Pick No. 23: With the 23rd pick of the 2021 NBA Draft, the Houston Rockets select forward Usman Garuba of Real Madrid.

  • Pick No. 24: With the 24th pick of the 2021 NBA Draft, the Houston Rockets select guard Josh Christopher of Arizona State.

  • Grimes began his college career at Kansas before transferring to the American Athletic Conference, where he was named Player of the Year for the 2020-21 season.
  • Upon arriving to college, he was viewed as a potential one-and-done prospect. He didn't 'hit' until his junior season, but becomes a first round draft pick who will be part of the Knicks franchise.

  • Pick No. 26: With the 26th pick of the 2021 NBA Draft, the Denver Nuggets select guard Nah'Shon "Bones" Hyland of Virginia Commonwealth.
