Here are the results of this year’s first and second round draft. It was a fun draft for many teams and their fans. There were some reaches and some solid picks. The one pick that made the most sense was Kris Dunn to the Minnesota Timberwolves. The biggest reach to me was Thon Maker at ten, I had him near the middle or end of the first round. The trade that shocked most people was between the Oklahoma City Thunder and Orlando Magic that involved Domantas Sabonis, Ersan Ilyasova, and Victor Oladipo for Serge Ibaka. The biggest steal in the draft was Malachi Richardson to the Sacramento Kings. Also, the safest pick was Brice Johnson to the Los Angeles Clippers. Lastly, I think the Phoenix Suns won the draft by selecting and keeping Dragan Bender, Marquese Chriss, and Tyler Ulis.
