2021 NBA Mock Draft – First Round

2021 NBA Mock Draft

Giannis Antetokounmpo led the Milwaukee Bucks to an NBA Championship, defeating the Phoenix Suns in the NBA Finals. There was just a week to celebrate before the 2021 NBA Draft tonight in Brooklyn. This is my 2021 NBA Mock Draft - First Round.

There are plenty of rumors swirling around picks and players on the trading block. Teams with multiple first-round picks like the Golden State Warriors, Oklahoma City Thunder and New York Knicks are rumored to want to package a pick to acquire talent, while the Orlando Magic are looking to trade back and acquire assets for the future.

The New Orleans Pelicans have found a trade partner for Eric Bledsoe and the 10th overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft. They had to include Steven Adams but the Memphis Grizzlies are sending Jonas Valanciunas, the 17th and 51st picks in the draft in the deal.

Russell Westbrook is rumored to be on his way to the Los Angeles Lakers to join forces with LeBron James and Anthony Davis! In the trade, the Washington Wizards will receive Kyle Kuzma, Montrezl Harrell, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and a 2021 first-round pick. Both Woj and Shams have confirmed.

Will the Wizards look to move Bradley Beal tonight as well? Will we see guys like Damian Lillard or Ben Simmons traded tonight?

Cade Cunningham is the consensus top pick in this draft, but the Houston Rockets could shake things up by selecting Evan Mobley. While Mobley is a special talent, there are rumors that his camp does not want to play for Houston. The majority of mocks around the internet do not have the Rockets adding Mobley to their roster.

If Mobley isn't available for the Cleveland Cavaliers, they would have a couple of different paths to choose from with Jalen Green, Jalen Suggs, Scottie Barnes and Jonathan Kuminga. All of which could shake up the rest of the lottery picks!
