2016 NBA Mock Draft: Final Pre-Draft Edition

The NBA Draft is on Thursday night. There is still a lot of trade speculation about veterans moving, and free agency is making things more interesting as players like Dirk Nowitzki joins the ranks of the looking-for-employment.

Also, the Knicks don't have a pick but they did add a big piece. New York has reportedly acquired Derrick Rose from the Bulls for a package of Jerian Grant, Jose Calderon and Robin Lopez.

1. Philadelphia - Ben Simmons, F, LSU
2. LA Lakers - Brandon Ingram, F, Duke

ESPN has reported that Simmons has been told he will be the number one pick by Philly and Ingram has been informed he will be the second pick by the Lakers. From there, the crap shoot begins.
