NBA Mock Draft 2021 - 3rd Edition

Welcome to the third and final installment of our 2021 NBA mock draft.


Since our last Mock Draft installment we have all witnessed the NBA Draft Combine with NBA approved Pro-Days taking place immediately following, several International event, and countless pre-draft workouts


The staff here at Between The Lines Sports, LLC has done our best to to monitor the draft landscape in its entirety as players decided to test the waters and stay in the draft while others decided to return to school with hopes of improving their draft stock for next year. All of that leads us to this point, the draft is less than a week away (July 29, 2021) and we are confident in our selections and are eager to see who lands where.


In the meantime, enjoy our final Mock Draft and stay tuned for more great content from our entire staff at Between The Lines Sports.
