Ben Simmons went to Philadelphia with the first overall pick. Chris and Mark try and figure out if there will be any playing time issues and where Simmons should go in Fantasy Basketball drafts.
Brandon Ingram went next to the Lakers, a team obviously in flux. Ingram is just 18 years old. Is he ready to make an impact in 2016 or will we need to wait a few years?
The Celtics surprised many by selecting Jaylen Brown with the third pick. Is he even worth talking about for 2016?
Kris Dunn was the next pick. He seems to fit in well with what Tom Thibodeau is trying to do in Minnesota, but does his all-around game translate to the NBA? Will the Timberwolves deeal Ricky Rubio to make create more playing time for Dunn?
Buddy Hield may be the top scorer in the entire draft, but will he contribute enough to be a big help in Fantasy Basketball?
