Top Ten NBA Teams that Had the Best 2018 Draft

A lot of teams had amazing drafts, some had good, some had ok, some had bad, and some had horrible drafts. We will be reviewing the amazing and good drafts.

The Top Ten

1 Phoenix Suns Phoenix Suns

I love what the Suns did in this draft. They took Ayton to create a Kobe/Shaq like combo. I also love the trade with the 76ers to get Mikal Bridges. I also love Elie Okobo with the first pick in the 2nd round to possibly end up backing up Elfrid Payton or maybe even starting. And then they ended off the night with George King who could end up being a role player for this team. - 2storm

Kinda a given as they are the number 1 pick every year. But the Browns are the worst every year and they always make very bad picks. Suns picking Ayton was the obvious move and good thing they did it because he’s gonna be great

This is their first year in franchise history to be pick number 1. - 2storm

Ayton is probably the best player in the draft
Then Bagley
Then Young
Porter is overrated, Colin Sexton is underrated, Kevin Knox is better than Porter,Doncic will Be ok
That’s just my opinion - Metalfan2112

Ugh.. Knicks fans totally rejected that selection in disbelief. - htoutlaws2012

2 Philadelphia 76ers Philadelphia 76ers
3 Dallas Mavericks Dallas Mavericks

They got Doncic!

Huge W getting Doncic best player in the draft.

4 Denver Nuggets Denver Nuggets

The Nuggets got a absolute steal with Porter and got a pretty good raw 2nd rounder to backup Nikola Jokic. I disagree with the pick of Justin Jackson and Jared Vanderbilt, but the pickup of Porter just counteracts that and then some. - 2storm

Porter is so overrated smh - Metalfan2112

5 Los Angeles Lakers Los Angeles Lakers The Los Angeles Lakers are an American professional basketball team based in Los Angeles. The Lakers compete in the National Basketball Association, as a member of the league's Western Conference Pacific Division. more.

Now they have LeBron - 2storm

I love the pick of Mortiz Wagner to play the center and maybe even start. Isaac Bongna is also a really smart pick. - 2storm

6 Charlotte Hornets Charlotte Hornets
7 San Antonio Spurs San Antonio Spurs

The Spurs had a really good draft they got a steal with Lonnie Walker IV who fell to 18. They also ended up getting a young raw prospect to play the 4 in the second round. - 2storm

I'm from Texas so it's normal for me to vote for ol' San Antone.

8 Sacramento Kings

Love what the Kings did with the 2nd pick and they have a really bright future now with Bagley, Fox, Bogdanovich, Heild, and Justin Jackson. - 2storm

9 Cleveland Cavaliers Cleveland Cavaliers The Cleveland Cavaliers, also known as the Cavs, are an American professional basketball team based in Cleveland, Ohio.

They might not have had many picks but Colin Sexton was a huge win

I absolutely love the pickup of Collin Sexton and he provides a solid leadership role with the new look Cavs after the King leaves. If he doesn't the Cavs have a second ball handler with Sexton. - 2storm

They’re only major pick was Colin Sexton, but I like Sexton. That was a good pick - KingSlayer93316

Yep, I really liked Collin Sexton, and maybe they’ll finally be ready to win an NBA championship. - PackFan2005

While he may be their leader in the future that team has a lot of older players that need to get younger again which they are not quite that. - htoutlaws2012

10 Orlando Magic Orlando Magic

Love the pick of Bamba and it should end up being amazing. Also like Melvin Fraziers. - 2storm

Bamba's upside warranted picking best player available, regardless of having Biyombo and Vucevic on contract for next season. Love the pick

The Contenders

11 Boston Celtics Boston Celtics The Boston Celtics are an American professional basketball team based in Boston, Massachusetts. They are specifically known for honing infamous players such as Larry Bird, Bill Russell, Paul Pierce, and more. They are also known for having the most championships in NBA History, with 17 total.

Forgot the Boston Celtics had a great draft picking a defensive talent in Robert Williams and not ruining everything they have going and trade for Mo Bamba. - 2storm

They got a lottery talent at #27, and he fills a need.

Big steal if it works out - kuledude

Danny definitely made the right pick, let’s see how this plays out. Also I think Doncic is going to be better than any of the other draftees

12 Chicago Bulls Chicago Bulls The Chicago Bulls are an American professional basketball team based in Chicago, Illinois. The Bulls compete in the National Basketball Association as a member of the league's Eastern Conference Central Division. more.

Love the pick of Carter, but I don't really like the pick of Chandler Hutchinson. - 2storm

13 Brooklyn Nets Brooklyn Nets

Just progressively get better like what the Nets are doing. - 2storm

14 Atlanta Hawks Atlanta Hawks
15 Golden State Warriors Golden State Warriors The Golden State Warriors are an American professional basketball team based in Oakland, California. The Warriors compete in the National Basketball Association as a member of the league's Western Conference Pacific Division. more.
16 Minnesota Timberwolves Minnesota Timberwolves The Minnesota Timberwolves are an American professional basketball team based in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Love the two picks they had. - 2storm

17 Detroit Pistons Detroit Pistons
18 Houston Rockets Houston Rockets

Lol did they even draft anyone?

19 Utah Jazz Utah Jazz

I was wrong about Grayson Allen. - 2storm
