2023 NBA Mock Draft – 6/26/22

Now that the 2022 draft is complete, time to crack open a nice can of 2023! Just now digging into the class and putting my 150 together, so this will obviously change greatly over time.

Draft order based on rankings of each team’s best player, with a lottery generator thrown in because…it doesn’t really matter. Numbers in parenthesis were the teams original draft placement.
