2016 NBA Mock Draft 2.0: Ben Simmons Or Brandon Ingram?


25. Los Angeles Clippers : Taurean Prince (SF-Baylor)

Taurean Prince projects as a three-and-D wing in the NBA. It’s entirely possible that he goes with the No. 21 pick to the Hawks, but he won’t get by the Clippers.

They need wing depth. And they need to get younger at the small forward position. Prince shot 37.6 from downtown for his career and 4.6 rebounds per game. He guarded multiple positions at Baylor.

26. Philadelphia 76ers (via Thunder) : Isaia Cordinier (SG-France)

With the Sixers third first round pick they won’t add another guaranteed rookie contract. Isaia Corinier is an athletic, attacking guard who can shoot threes.

Unfortunately, he’s still at least a year away from the NBA game as he needs to get bigger and learn to play smarter on both ends of the court.

27. Toronto Raptors : Juan Hernangomez (SF/PF-Spain)

Knicks’ fans recognize the last name of this first round prospect well. Juan Hernangomez is the brother of heralded Knicks’ stashed prospect Willy Hernangomez. Much like Willy, Juan will be stashed for a season.

Juan’s game isn’t like his brother as he is more of a shooter while Willy prefers to play around the rim.
