The Lead’s Final 2024 NBA Round 1 Mock Draft

on

The NBA offseason madness is upon us. Teams are making deals across the league and the rumor mill is in full swing.

But first, we’ve got the NBA Draft. As part of a yearly tradition, staffers from The Lead collaborated together for a simulated mock draft of the first 30 selections.

In this exercise, each staffer represented 1-2 teams and made their respective choices from the number-one overall pick all the way to the end of the first round. This mock draft included no trades— all teams made their selections based on the current draft order as of NBA draft eve.

Without further ado, here are The Lead’s first-round picks from the staffers themselves for this year’s draft:
