Sports Tank 2017 NBA Mock Draft

The NBA Draft kicks off Thursday night at 7p. As the big day approaches teams are already making deals. The #1 pick belongs to the Philadelphia 76ers, for the 2nd year in a row, after they swapped places at the top of the order with Boston (now picking 3rd). The Charlotte Hornets made a splash by trading the dead weight contract of Miles Plumlee to the Atlanta Hawks, along with Marco Belinelli. In doing so, the Hornets also jumped 10 spots in the 2nd round, swapping picks with Atlanta.  The Hornets pick 11th in the 1st round, and 1st in the 2nd (31st overall). The LA Lakers landed 20 pt -10 reb machine Brook Lopez from the Nets, and picked up a third 1st round pick. 

Here's how I see the 1st round turning out:
