2023 NBA Mock Draft - 4th Edition / Staff Edition

Every draft season, the entire staff, minus myself is allowed to create and produce an entire Mock Draft List, and the content that follows, all based on their own discretion, direction and tools available.


With the 2022/2023 NCAA Season concluding, and with professional leagues, overseas, winding down to the last stretch of their calendars, it only seems fitting that we have the incredibly talented, tenacious, and diverse thoughts of our basketball operations staff, present for you all to enjoy, leading up to our final two Mock Draft Lists appearing in the consecutive months, leading to draft night !


Without further hesitation or explanation, please enjoy the Staff Curated - 4th installment of our 2023 NBA Mock Draft.


Please share your thoughts in the comment section, below, and please like & share !


Note: The projected draft order is based on the Tankathon projections as of Friday, April 14, 2023. We are also aware that this Draft will only consist of 58 picks due to infractions by a couple of teams, which we believe it is unfair for two prospects to lose out on their dream of being drafted, so they will be listed on our Mock throughout the process.
