2016 NBA Mock Draft

The Wizards do not have a selection in the 2016 NBA Draft, but this mock gives you an idea of what undrafted free agents will be available. A list of potential FA’s (32) is listed below, following the mock draft. The Wizards will have approximately $28 million dollars available in free agency, where the bulk of their work will be done. Bonus listing of top free agents (50) available wraps up the report.

Washington traded their first round pick to Phoenix for forward Markeiff Morris at the 2016 trade deadline. The second round selection was sent to Atlanta (along with last year’s number two) for the right to move up and take Kansas freshman Kelly Oubre Jr.

The simulation is available at our friends Real GM, give it a go HERE.

  • Two round mock, identified 32 potential undrafted college free agents and bonus listing of the top 50 unrestricted NBA free agents. I am curious who my fellow NBA’ers believe we should target.

  • Potential college free agents I like, Taylor G Texas Carter F Maryland Tarczewski C Arizona

  • Love Whiteside, but believe he may be as much of a pipe dream as KD, otherwise one of the stretch 4’s, Anderson, Teletovic or Ilyasova, Derrick Williams or Evan Turner, Eric Gordon and take a gamble on Ty Lawson or Brandon Jennings

  • We also need to target a restricted free agent or two. I think Harrison Barnes is going to be a beast combo forward on a team where.he doesn’t only get touches on rebounds (on both ends) My sleeper us 7’1″ Myers Leonard of Portland, good passed and legit 3 point range (both RFA’s)

  • Roster with both FA’s and undrafted college guys. (Although don’t you think it’s time we bought draft picks after years of selling them- Jordan Clarkson the most recent)
