My Complete 2012 NBA Mock Draft

     These projections are based on the needs of teams and the selections they currently have. It is highly likely each team won't be in the same exact spot by the time the NBA Draft starts, since that is when most of the trades occur. I don't expect the draft order to be the same by tonight, but if no trades happen, then this is what the order will look like, and I am basing my draft projections on the current order. Selections should be read as "Team = Player, Position, School" For international players, I'll put down the country they played for before they were subsequently drafted.
