NBA Draft Lottery Predictions: Warriors Kings, Pelicans, Pacers

NBA Draft Rumors

We are just days away from the 2021 NBA Draft and as usual, trade talks and draft rumors are starting to heat up! As things stand right now, Cade Cunningham will be the first pick in this year’s draft by the Detroit Pistons, followed by Jalen Green going to the Houston Rockets, but after that, there are some questions about how the rest of the draft could play out. 

Evan Mobley is presumably the next best player available for the Cavaliers, but Cleveland is a team that has fielded calls for their No. 3 overall pick. Could they look to trade this draft pick should Mobley fall their way or will they look to pair the young big man with Jarrett Allen, who they are looking to re-sign in free agency? 

The top players in this year’s draft in Cade Cunningham, Jalen Green, Evan Mobley, Jalen Suggs, Scottie Barnes and Jonathan Kuminga will all likely be selected no later than the No. 7 pick in this year’s draft, but the rest of the NBA Draft lottery has a lot of questions surrounding it. 

The Golden State Warriors own two picks in the lottery and the Sacramento Kings, New Orleans Pelicans and Indiana Pacers have all expressed interest in possibly moving out of their current lottery picks, so what should we expect on Thursday night?

Let’s take a look at the latest intel surrounding the Warriors, Kings, Pelicans and Pacers and take a look at some predictions for what they will likely do on draft night.
