Poll: 2016 Community Mock Draft (Pick No. 1)

The 2016 NBA Draft lottery was held on Tuesday night and the Sixers finally landed the elusive No. 1 overall pick after missing out the past two seasons. Now that the exact draft order is locked in, teams can begin targeting specific players who are likely to still be on the board when it is their time to choose. Drafting players is far from an exact science, and many a GM has been second-guessed for his draft night decisions. I’m willing to bet that every team executive has at least one pick that he would like a mulligan for. We at Hoops Rumors thought it would be fun to give our readers the chance to predict the results of this June’s draft, which is what we intend to do with a series of polls.

We’ll begin with the Sixers, who are likely to choose between former LSU forward Ben Simmons and former Duke forward Brandon Ingram at the top slot, though GM Bryan Colangelo could look to address the team’s void at point guard by nabbing Kris Dunn or Jamal Murray instead. Readers, you are now on the clock! Cast your vote for Philadelphia’s pick and check back Thursday for the results, as well as to cast your vote for who the Lakers will select with the No. 2 overall pick. But don’t limit yourself to a simple button click. Take to the comments section below and share your thoughts on the No. 1 overall pick and why you voted the way that you did.

  1. Hoosier Hysteria

    Simmons shot 3 3-pointers in 33 games. Made 1! Does not fit today’s NBA game. Not a good draft class. Too bad for Celtics with all those picks. Ainge will bundle/trade as he should.

  2. aarongill

    It should be Ingram, he fits better and Philly needs shooters and it seems like Simmons wants to be in LA. Either way Philly will get criticized, if they draft Ingram people will say they went for fit over talent, if they draft Simmons they will say they chose talent over fit.

  3. coldgoldenfalstaff

    Simmons has to be the pick. His elite speed and passing ability fit a huge need, and he’s great at creating shots, all in a 6’10” package with rebounds and a fast break generator.

    I’d pick Ingram if we had those skills in one of our players already, but he looks to be a #2 scorer rather than “the guy” and he needs to fill out to survive the physical NBA game.

  4. B Ingram No. 1

    My Sixers have to take Ingram. He’s a Kevin Durant clone. Simmons has no motor, no outside shot, and no history of winning anything ever.

  5. Simmons is probably the higher ceiling pick, but his lack of an outside shot and Philly’s abundance of centers/PF’s, Ingram seems to beer the ‘logical’ pick. Can only fit so many people in the paint.

  6. celtics80

    Simmons will go #1 because they need a play maker for Okafor and Wroten.

      Wroten is in new york

    Everyone says Simmons at 1 but I have a hard time believing that will will happen. I’ll put money on Ingram going 1st, think Simmons goes 2 and either Lakers try to trade him or trade the pick before they have to make that decision of who to pick. If I was them I’d take the pick and try to sign a Younger Center like Whiteside.

    Ingram. He’s a better shooter. Period.

    LA: 2nd(Ingram)/Russell(2nd)

    • FloridaMan1988

      Horrible trade

      • Bdubs521

        In what way?

    • Realist

      If the Lakers wanted Okafor they would have drafted him last year. Plus what do they need Simmons for when they have Randle. You must be a Sixers fan.

      • Bdubs521

        In hindsight i think they take okafor, better fit, pg position is deep and easier to find than a big with a smooth post game, clarkson is good enough at point. Both Okafor and Russell would be better off with a change of scenery(off thecourt/locker room situations). Randle is not a blue chip cornerstone player so could easily be traded this offseason anyway, larry nance jr will push him for minutes. Im not a sixers or lakers fan. Just think it makes sense for both teams

  10. Simmons

  11. They have to go Ingram or Simmons. On one hand with Simmons, you get the guy who has the higher ceiling, is oozing with potential, and would address the Sixers’ need for a playmaker; but he can’t shoot threes and wouldn’t be a good fit next to Saric/Noel/Embiid/Okafor. Ingram, on the other hand, would probably fit better next to all the bigs the 76ers have and can shoot threes (which will open the paint for their bigs as opposed to Simmons who needs that same space to operate) but probably needs two or three years before he should be expected to compete at his highest potential.

  12. bowserhound

    If the last few years tell us anything, it’s that the Sixers will take the best available player regardless of need.
    BUT, now that there’s a new GM in town they might actually make a logical pick and go with the PG.

  13. DannyQ3913

    Trade the pick to Phoenix for 4th and 13th picks.

    • Eddie Scarito

      But….how does that make them a better team? The Sixers need to land a star and there doesn’t appear to be one in this draft outside Simmons, Ingram and perhaps Bender in a few years. If the team deals the pick it HAS to be for an established star player like Cousins, Butler, Love etc…. Loading up on more picks does little for the team and moving down in this draft (even for two picks) wouldn’t move the needle enough as to be worth it. Just my two cents…

  14. nicksciulli22

    ingram. simmons is gonna eventually be a PF and the sixers dont need another big man. ingram is more of an outside scorer than simmons and the sixers need perimeter threats to open up the court for okafor and embiid

  16. Grant Weddle

    Suns get: #1 and take Simmons to address PF position and 76ers lowest 1st rounder (can’t remember number) to take hopefully Ulis or a different PG
    T-Wolves get: P.J. Tucker and #13 pick to take a atheltic wing ie Jaylen Brown if he falls and one of 76ers 3 centers
    76ers get: #4 (Buddy Hield) #5 (Kris Dunn) and their pick of Ebled, Knight or Rubio
    The teams can add picks to sweeten deals for hesitant teams but this is the meat of the trade

    • Grant Weddle

      End Result staring 5’s
      Suns: Ebled/Knight, Booker, Warren, Simmons, Len/Chandler
      T-Wolves: Rubio/Lavine, Wiggins, Tucker/Muhammad, Noel, Towns
      76ers: Veteran PG/Dunn, Hield, Covington/Grant, Saric, Okafor/Embiid

      • Grant Weddle

        Suns lose 2 lottery picks a starting PG and SF for the first pick and a late first rounder, but clear up their PG logjam and give Warren more PT. 76ers lose the first overall a late first and a young center but get their backcourt of the future plus a proven PG and clear up their logjam at C. TWolves lose their top 5 pick and starting PG but get 2 wings to complement Shabazz and Wiggins, a young frontcourt mate and free up PT for LaVine

        • Grant Weddle

          Lakers take Ingram and Celtics take Murray
