Among the top prospects in this year’s draft are Washington guard Markelle Fultz and UCL guard Lonzo Ball: most experts seem to agree these two players will be chosen early.

In his mock draft, Parrish then has Kansas small forward Josh Jackson going to the Philadelphia 76ers as the No. 3 overall pick, and then the Phoenix Suns selecting Duke small forward Jayson Tatum as the fourth pick.
Rounding out the top ten pick predictions for the first round, according to Parrish’s mock draft, are Kentucky point guard De’Aaron Fox to the Sacramento Kings (No. 5), Kentucky point guard Malik Monk to the Orlando Magic (No. 6), Florida State small forward Jonathan Isaac to the Minnesota Timberwolves (No. 7), NC State point guard Dennis Smith to the New York Knicks (No. 8), France point guard Frank Ntilikina to the Dallas Mavericks, and Duke shooting guard Luke Kennard to the Kings.
Another top prospect Parrish predicts will be selected in the first round is North Carolina small forward Justin Jackson, whom he believes the Chicago Bulls will take as the 16th pick. Parrish also predicts Duke’s freshman power forward Harry Giles will go to the Portland Trail Blazers as the 20th overall pick.
