Check out NoLimitJumpers first ever full NBA Mock Draft! All 30 first round picks with indepth analysis!

Picks 11-20


San Antonio Spurs

Isaac Okoro

Forward, Auburn


With the possible departure of Demar Derozan, LaMarcus Aldridge, and Patty Mills, San Antonio may look to draft a young wing to pair with Lonnie Walker and Dejounte Murray. Isaac Okoro fits exactly with the direction San Antonio may take. Okoro is only 19, with lots of room to grow. He was SEC All-Defense first team and posses some of the best off the ball defensive instincts in the draft. He’s a spotty shooter but found ways to get to the rim and finish in college. If he’s going to succeed at the next level, he needs to sure up his 3 point shot. Thankfully, San Antonio is the best place to develop.

Player Comp

De’Aaron Fox
John Wall


Sacramento Kings

Devin Vassell

Guard/Forward, Florida State


Devin Vassell is a more surefire safe pick. Teams know what they are getting out of him, and he will be an ideal 3-and-D NBA wing. Surrounding the King’s exciting young core with reliable younger players is the smartest move possible. Physical limitations will prevent him from being a star, but Vassell’s potential will vary depending on the situation he is put in.

Player Comp

Danny Green
Khris Middleton


New orleans Pelicans

Aaron Nesmith

Forward, Vanderbilt


In a small sample size of games, Nesmith proved to be a ridiculous three-point scorer, shooting 52 percent from deep. Though his playmaking abilities are questionable, he will not be in a playmaking role in New Orleans. Surrounded by Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram and more, Nesmith’s scoring will make the Pelicans dangerously well rounded offensively.

Jerry Stackhouse
Khris Middleton


Boston Celtics (via memphis)

Daniel Oturu

Forward/Center, Minnesota


Daniel Oturo will be the steal of this year’s NBA draft, plain and simple. As a Boston Celtics fan, I knew we needed a center who can block shots, operate out of the high P&R, and hit 3s, Oturu does that and at a high level. It is very rare you see a 6’10” center with a 7’2” wingspan with the ability to create and hit shots, play make, and defend. Oturu is far from a finished product, and will likely get taken in the later rounds, but his raw talent and ability are too much to overlook. The fact that he isn’t a sure-fire lottery pick is beyond me.

I’d like to add, Boston needs to trade up to 6 and select Onyeka Okongwu.

Player Comp

Elton Brand
Bobby Portis
Thon Maker


Orlando Magic

Precious Achiuwa

Forward/Center, Memphis


This pick is made with the assumption that Aaron Gordon is dealt during the offseason. Achiuwa is a high-flying, athletic forward with remarkable defensive abilities. He also stepped up as a scorer in Wiseman’s absence, scoring rather efficiently for a defensive player.

Player Comp

Pascal Siakam


Portland Trail Blazers

Aleksej Pokysevski

Forward/Center, Olympiacos B, Serbia


Pokusevski is very much a project pick. He is not somebody who will come in and give immediate impact or any impact at all. Despite being 7’, Pokesevski only weighs 201 lbs. His size and frame will restrict what he’s able to do in the NBA. I will say this, his playmaking ability and handle at 7 feet is literally unprecedented. If he can fill out his extremely frail frame, he may become one of the best bench scorers in the league with his skill set. Regardless, Portland needs to be building for life after Dame, and this is a great start.

*Pick was traded to Houston last evening. Aleksej is still a great pick at 16, but they could go BPA and select a guard like Tyrese Maxey and/or Cole Anthony

Player Comp

Detlef Shrempf
Dragan Bender


Minnesota Timberwolves (via BKN)

Tyrese Maxey

Guard, Kentucky


A solidly athletic combo guard, lack of scoring efficiency prevents Maxey’s stock from rising. Known as a shooter in high school, he struggled from behind the arc with sub-30% numbers. His solid defense and physical gifts should keep him afloat in the NBA. He should be a solid role player.

Player Comp: Brynn Forbes/Lou Williams

Dallas Mavericks

Minnesota Timberwolves (via BKN)

Sadiq Bey

Forward, Villanova


With Giannis not yet in a Mavericks jersey, Dallas will look to improve their forward depth. Justin Jackson and Dorian Finney-Smith split time at the 3 last season, but Sadiq Bey will solidify the SF position this season for Dallas. Bey is yet another NBA ready product from Nova. He can shoot, defend, and even finish at the rim a bit. A very solid pick who will make a much-needed impact on a surging Mavericks squad.

Player Comp

Jae Crowder


Brooklyn Nets (via 76ers)

Isaiah Stewart

Forward, Washington


Stewart was widely regarded as a top ten prospect before the season. The incompetence and lack of fluidity in Washington’s system prevented him from raising his stock over the year. However, his age and wingspan, along with raw interior scoring ability help him project to be a solid player. Mobility and defensive abilities should help him immediately in the Nets system.

Player Comp

Derrick Favors
Jared Sullinger



Tyrell Terry

Point Guard, Stanford


If any player belongs in Miami from this year’s NBA draft, it’s Tyrell Terry. Terry plays with this swagger, similar to Tyler Herro actually, that allowed him to take over games in college. Terry possesses “limitless range”, the kid can legitimately rail a jumper from 30 feet with ease. Imagine Trae Young but if he played smart in college. This kid can be special, and will likely create a duo with Tyler Herro coming off the bench next season in Miami. This is a must draft with Goran Dragic potentially not returning and coming off an injury.
