I've had Brandon Ingram above Ben Simmons for a while. But all signs now point to Philadelphia leaning toward Simmons with the first overall pick, and that's why there's a change at the top of this mock draft.

Another development: I removed Furkan Korkmaz.

That doesn't mean I believe there are 30 prospects more draftable than the Turkish shooting guard. But there's no guarantee he's going to remain in the draft without a lottery promise, and I'm not sure he's going to get that promise. So he's out for now. But if he remains in the draft, absolutely, he'll be reinserted.

NBA Mock Draft

1. Philadelphia 76ers
Ben Simmons, SF, LSU: Reports that indicate the Sixers are interested in moving either Jahlil Okafor or Nerlens Noel before the draft suggest they're trying to adjust their roster to better fit Simmons. So it appears Philadelphia is leaning toward selecting the one-and-done talent from LSU. Are there question marks with Simmons? Of course. His reluctance to shoot jumpers at LSU and the pile of SEC losses are two. But Simmons still probably has the highest ceiling of anyone available. And that makes him a sensible option for a franchise that's spent the past several years taking big swings whenever possible.
2. Los Angeles Lakers
Brandon Ingram, SF, Duke: Los Angeles would prefer Simmons, I'm told. But getting Ingram is still a great outcome for the post-Kobe Lakers. He's a long athlete who shot 41 percent from 3-point range in one season at Duke. I can't promise he's the next Kevin Durant. But when you watch him, it's easy to see why those comparisons exist. Ingram would fit perfectly with the Lakers young core. He could be the player who returns the franchise to respectability.
3. Boston Celtics
Jamal Murray, SG, Kentucky: This is higher than most have Murray going. But I'm a fan of his ability to score off the bounce and shoot from the perimeter. He's not a point guard, but he can handle the ball a little more than he showed at Kentucky. For a franchise in desperate need of shooting help, Murray is a nice fit. He shot 40.8 percent from 3-point range while at UK.
4. Phoenix Suns
Jaylen Brown, SF, California: The Suns need help on the wing -- and Brown would be the best wing available. He didn't close strong at Cal. But the 19-year-old athlete was mostly terrific in Pac-12 play. He's a great upside pick who should be capable of guarding three, and maybe even four, positions in the NBA. And that ability is now more important than ever considering how regularly teams are using small-ball lineups featuring small forwards playing power forward.
5. Minnesota Timberwolves
Dragan Bender, PF, Israel: Bender is widely regarded as the top draft-eligible prospect who didn't play college basketball this season, and there's little doubt he'll be selected in the top half of the lottery. He's an 18-year-old forward who would fit nicely between Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins. If he's available here, Minnesota would be thrilled.
6. New Orleans Pelicans
Kris Dunn, PG, Providence: Anthony Davis has played four seasons in New Orleans. He's missed the playoffs three times. He's still never won a postseason game. So the Pelicans need to use this pick to get him somebody who can contribute immediately, and Dunn is that somebody. The point guard might be the best plug-and-play prospect in this draft. He could start on opening night if the Pelicans need him to start on opening night.
7. Denver Nuggets
Buddy Hield, SG, Oklahoma: Any team that finishes 25th in 3-point shooting could use a 3-point shooter, and there's no better one in this draft than Hield. The CBS Sports National Player of the Year shot 46.4 percent from 3-point range during his senior season while leading OU to the Final Four. Simply put, I'll be surprised if Hield isn't a really good NBA player -- because he can create and shoot, and because he has a great work ethic and no red flags.
8. Sacramento Kings
Denzel Valentine, SG, Michigan State: The Memorial Day arrest of Darren Collision in an alleged domestic violence incident could cause Sacramento to look at point guard options. But taking a PG this high is a stretch unless Dunn is somehow still on the board. So the Kings will either trade down or just take the best player available. And, if it's the latter, Valentine is a solid call considering A) he's a four-year player ready to contribute, and B) the Kings want to win now.
9. Toronto Raptors
Henry Ellenson, PF-C, Marquette: Toronto has a need at power forward, which makes Ellenson an option. The one-and-done prospect is only 19. And though he didn't shoot a good percentage from beyond the arc at Marquette, he has the tools to be a stretch-four. Combine that with his polished low-post game, and Ellenson has one of the highest ceilings in this draft.
10. Milwaukee Bucks
Jakob Poeltl, PF, Utah: The Bucks would like to see Ellenson fall, which would allow them to draft a potential stretch-five who played college ball in Milwaukee. But if he's off the board, Poeltl is a good fit. He's a big who plays big. And the 7-foot-1 center would help Milwaukee shore up an interior defense by adding a rim protector who is a good-enough athlete.
11. Orlando Magic
Marquese Chriss, PF, Washington: Frank Vogel's ability to develop young talent should be instrumental in a predicted turn for the better in Orlando. And if I'm the Magic, I'm taking one of the many young forwards with lots of potential and asking Vogel to do for them what he just did for Myles Turner with the Pacers. Chriss, if available, would be among the interesting options. He's a long athlete who can shoot. He tested well at the combine. Executives are in love with what he could become. He might end up in the top five by draft night.
12. Utah Jazz
Timothe Luwawu, SG, France: Luwawu is a wing who has good size and is an above-average athlete and defender. Those things alone would get him selected, probably. But the fact that he also shoots about 40 percent from 3-point range makes him a possible lottery pick and nice option for the Jazz even with Rodney Hood and Gordon Hayward on the roster.
13. Phoenix Suns
Skal Labissiere, PF, Kentucky: The Suns have three first-round picks. So they can afford a big swing here. And Labissiere is the biggest of swings. Once considered a possible top overall selection, he mostly struggled in his one season at Kentucky. But the potential for greatness is still there and intriguing. He's worth a gamble somewhere in the lottery of a weak draft.
14. Chicago Bulls
Deyonta Davis, PF, Michigan State: A report that Joakim Noah is leaving Chicago via free agency suggests the Bulls could focus on frontcourt prospects -- and Davis would be the best available here. He declined to test athletically at the combine and likely will need to perform well in private workouts to ensure a place in the top 15. But the 6-11 forward showed himself as a high-level rebounder in limited minutes during his one season at Michigan State, and he was also one of the nation's best shot-blockers. So, at worst, Davis should be a difference-maker on the defensive end at the NBA level.
15. Denver Nuggets
Tyler Ulis, PG, Kentucky: I previously had Ulis going 14th to the Bulls. But the Noah news suggesting Chicago might look to add frontcourt help pushed Ulis out of the lottery. He shouldn't fall too far, though, because he's an interesting option for Denver in the sense that he's a pure point guard who could, at times, allow Emmanuel Mudiay to play off the ball.
16. Boston Celtics
Domantas Sabonis, PF, Gonzaga: Sabonis skipped the combine, which caused some to believe he might've received a promise from somebody. Whether that's true is unclear. But a top-20 promise from a franchise with three first-round picks -- like the Celtics -- would make sense, and it's not like Boston already has inspiring power forwards on the roster.
17. Memphis Grizzlies
Wade Baldwin IV, SG, Vanderbilt: The Grizzlies need help at point guard -- preferably in the form of somebody who A) is big enough to sometimes play next to Mike Conley, and B) can shoot from the perimeter. Baldwin checks both boxes. And the fact that he measured and tested well at the combine basically guarantees some franchise will take him in the first round.
18. Detroit Pistons
Demetrius Jackson, PG, Notre Dame: Jackson will be the second straight Notre Dame guard to go in the first round. His ability to flourish in the pick-and-roll while being a respectable shooter -- he shot better than 41 percent form 3-point range in his freshman and sophomore years -- should allow him, in time, to become an NBA starter. But he'll begin his career as a backup point guard, which is something Detroit badly needs.
19. Denver Nuggets
Ivica Zubac, C, Croatia: The Nuggets have three first-round picks but do not need three rookies on their roster. So a draft-and-stash seems likely. And Zubac is a terrific candidate for such given that he's only 19 years old and probably willing to stay in Serbia for another year. He's averaging double-figures in Europe for a team that could have multiple draft picks.
20. Indiana Pacers
Brice Johnson, PF, North Carolina: Johnson was a monster while averaging 16.6 points and 10.6 rebounds and leading North Carolina to the national championship game. The quick leaper improved his stock enough to where going in the top 20 of this draft isn't out of the question. And for the Pacers, he would provide needed frontcourt depth.
21. Atlanta Hawks
Taurean Prince, SF, Baylor: This 6-8 wing has the athleticism and wingspan to guard his position, and even multiple positions, at the NBA level. It's also worth noting he's an 82 percent free-throw shooter. And Prince is an above-average rebounder for his position, too. So he can contribute in a lot of different ways.
22. Charlotte Hornets
Malik Beasley, SG, Florida State: Beasley is a guard with decent size who is a tremendous athlete and good-enough shooter -- evidence being that he made 37.8 percent of his 3-point attempts at Florida State. He's a reasonable option for a Charlotte franchise that could use a playmaker next to Kemba Walker.
23. Boston Celtics
Cheick Diallo, C, Kansas: Diallo measured and tested well at the combine -- then played well in the five-on-five games. He was active. He rebounded. He guarded. Simply put, the 6-9 forward genuinely helped himself by reminding scouts why he was once a projected lottery pick. And now it looks like that sub-par season at Kansas won't cost Diallo too much money.
24. Philadelphia 76ers
Malachi Richardson, SG, Syracuse: Richardson has parlayed a nice performance in the NCAA Tournament into a likely guaranteed contract, which is something few saw coming in, say, February. The 6-6 guard is a good athlete who measured and tested well at the combine. Not everybody likes him. But he has enough fans in franchises to secure a spot in the first round.
25. Los Angeles Clippers
DeAndre' Bembry, SF, Saint Joseph's: Bembry was, by all accounts, terrific at the combine. He tested well and played magnificently in the five-on-five games. His ability to guard multiple positions at the NBA level should prove useful, and the way Bembry sees the floor and passes could allow him to, at times, play the role of point-forward.
26. Philadelphia 76ers
Thon Maker, C, Australia: Maker is still mostly an unknown in the sense that he's never played basketball consistently against high-level competition. But he measured, tested and interviewed well at the combine, where he gained fans. And now it seems more likely than not that Maker will go in the first round based on little more than the idea that his ceiling is higher than most prospects' ceilings.
27. Toronto Raptors
Stephen Zimmerman Jr., C, UNLV: Zimmerman's freshman season was limited by injury. But he still nearly averaged a double-double in the Mountain West Conference, and he remains a skilled 7-footer who was a consensus top-10 high school recruit. So, late in the first round, he's worth a flyer.
28. Phoenix Suns
Juan Hernangomez, PF, Spain: The Suns do not need three players on rookie contracts. So they might, and likely should, go with a draft-and-stash prospect here. Hernangomez qualifies as a great option. He's a 6-9 20-year-old stretch-4 who is shooting roughly 40 percent from 3-point range in Spain.
29. San Antonio Spurs
Chinanu Onuaku, C, Louisville: San Antonio is great, obviously. But the Spurs could use a defensive-minded frontcourt player like Onuaku, regardless of whether Tim Duncan returns or retires. The 6-10 forward nearly averaged a double-double -- and blocked 2.0 shots a game -- while playing only 24.6 minutes per contest as a sophomore at Louisville.
30. Golden State Warriors
Ben Bentil, PF, Providence: Bentil is a long and athletic forward who can score from multiple spots -- around the rim and all the way out to the 3-point line. He was terrific this season at Providence, and he played well in the five-on-five games at the combine. Given how much Golden State asks players to be versatile -- and how much Steve Kerr likes his team to shoot from the perimeter from four positions -- Bentil would make a lot of sense in a Warriors uniform.
