The NBA Finals are still being decided between the Warriors and Cavaliers, but the 2016 draft is just a little over a week away. 

Most of the debate around the draft has centered around the Philadelphia 76ers and their dilemma at No. 1: Should they take Ben Simmons or Brandon Ingram? While their decision will likely dominate headlines the next few days, many other questions remain. Will the Lakers grab Simmons or Ingram or do they have their eye on someone else at No. 2? Where will Croatian phenom Dragan Bender land? Which guard in a loaded class—Kris Dunn, Jamal Murray and Buddy Hield, to name a few—will go first?

To answer these questions and preview the 2016 NBA draft, assembled five writers—Andrew Sharp, Ben Golliver, Matt Dollinger, David Gardner and Jeremy Woo—to take part in a Mock Draft roundtable and select players as if they were the team’s GMs.
