NBA Draft Frenzy: Redrafting the 2012 NBA Draft.
The 2012 NBA Draft was one of the better drafts we have seen in the last several years. It consisted of four future All-Stars, as well as several other players who have come on later in their careers and have found success more recently. Additionally, this draft featured one of the best groups of second round picks we have ever seen, three of which are featured in this redraft. Overall, this is a solid group full of players who have made huge impacts in their five years in the NBA so far.
1. New Orleans Hornets- Anthony Davis (Original Selection: Anthony Davis)
At the time, the New Orleans franchise was still known as the Hornets, and they made quite the buzz by taking the big man out of Kentucky with the first overall pick. They got this one right, and while it has only resulted in one playoff appearance in five seasons so far, Davis is clearly the man to build around in the Big Easy. He is averaging 22.4 PPG and just over 10 rebounds per game for his career, and he had his best season to date this past season, averaging 28 points and 11.8 rebounds per game. With Davis and the newly acquired DeMarcus Cousins occupying the post, this team is only one backcourt threat away from making some noise in the Western Conference.
2. Charlotte Bobcats- Damian Lillard (Original Selection: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist)
Lillard's original slot: Sixth overall.
Yes, they were known as the Bobcats back then too. This draft saw Kentucky players go in the top two, the first time in draft history the top two picks were from the same school. New Orleans struck gold with Davis, however Charlotte cannot say the same about Kidd-Gilchrist. The six foot seven inch forward has averaged double digit points just twice in his career, however in one of those seasons he appeared in only seven games. Kidd-Gilchrist also is a poor shooter, and his inability to rebound has had him caught between positions for his entire career. Damian Lillard, on the other hand, has been one of the best point guards in the NBA over the last five years. Lillard won Rookie of the Year in 2013 after averaging 19 PPG in his rookie year with Portland, who took him with the sixth pick. Lillard's play in his first five seasons warrants his recognition as the second best player in this draft class.
3. Washington Wizards- Draymond Green (Original Selection: Bradley Beal)
Green's original slot: 35th overall.
Here's the first of the second round gems from this draft. Draymond Green fell all the way to the 35th overall pick of the draft, where he was scooped up by the Golden State Warriors. Say what you want about him, but he's a solid player who has gotten better each year. In his rookie year, he appeared in 79 games but played only 13 minutes per game. By the end of his sophomore season in the NBA, you could see that Green was going to become a difference maker in this league. Since the start of the 2014-2015 season, he has started every game he has appeared in, and has also averaged double digit points each season, including a career high 14 PPG in 2015-2016. His defense has been his calling card, averaging two steals per game this past season. He has become one of the stingiest defenders in today's game.
4. Cleveland Cavaliers- Andre Drummond (Original Selection: Dion Waiters)
Drummond's original slot: Ninth overall.
Drummond had a quiet rookie season in Detroit, as he primarily came off the bench and averaged just under eight points per game. Since then, he has missed only three games over the past four seasons, averaging a double-double in each campaign. Drummond is one of the best post players in the game today, as he is able to effectively carve out space in the paint and score as well as rebound. He is a strong rim protecting presence as well, averaging 1.5 blocks per game over his career. Yes, he is among the worst free throw shooters to ever play in the NBA, but all other facets of his game are polished.
5. Sacramento Kings- Bradley Beal (Original Selection: Thomas Robinson)
Beal's original slot: Third overall.
The fact that Bradley Beal is the fifth best player in this draft shows you how deep this draft truly was. Beal's coming out party was this past season, as he scored 23.1 PPG in 77 games for the Wizards. He owned the third highest field goal percentage among guards this past season at 48.2%, and also lit it up from deep by shooting 40%. Beal, along with his backcourt mate John Wall have formed one of the best dynamic duos in today's NBA. However, due to the immense star power in this draft, he slips to number five.
6. Portland Trail Blazers- Harrison Barnes (Original Selection: Damian Lillard)
Barnes' original slot: Seventh overall.
Damian Lillard has turned around the Portland franchise over the last five season. In this redraft, however, they don't even get the chance to draft him. Instead, they have to settle for Harrison Barnes, who was a nice complement on the Golden State Warriors juggernaut of the last several years. The North Carolina product fled to Dallas last offseason and had the best season of his career with the Mavericks, averaging 19.2 PPG. Barnes became a primary scoring option with the Mavs, as he attempted 16.5 field goals per game as opposed to just the 8.5 shots per game he averaged in his four years with Golden State. Barnes' move to Dallas was big for him, as he was able to show the league just how good of a player he truly is.
7. Golden State Warriors- Khris Middleton (Original Selection: Harrison Barnes)
Middleton's original slot: 39th overall.
The Golden State Warriors had an incredible 2012 NBA Draft, scooping up Barnes, Draymond Green and also Festus Ezeli. All three of those players were key contributors to their Championship season in 2015 and their 73-9 season in 2016. However, in this redraft, Barnes and Green are both off the board. Instead, they take a flyer on a raw prospect out of Texas A&M: Khris Middleton. Middleton was taken by the Pistons with the 39th pick in the draft before he was dealt to the Bucks after his rookie year. Since then, he has developed into a very nice scorer, averaging 14.1 PPG in his four seasons in Milwaukee. His best season to date came in the 2015-2016 campaign in which he averaged 18.2 PPG and shot 44.4% from the field in 79 games. Another second round gem from this draft.
8. Toronto Raports- Jae Crowder (Original Selection: Terrence Ross)
Crowder's original slot: 34th overall.
Back-to-back second round picks find their way to the top-10. After being named Big East Player of the Year in his senior season at Marquette in 2012, Crowder was picked by the Dallas Mavericks with the 34th overall pick. After primarily being used as a reserve, Crowder was traded to the Boston Celtics in the middle of the 2014-2015 season in the deal that brought Rajon Rondo to Dallas. Crowder has become a full-time starter over the last two seasons, and has averaged just under 13 PPG as a member of the Celtics. Crowder has also become a reliable defender, and has developed into one of the more useful players in the league.
9. Detroit Pistons- Dion Waiters (Original Selection: Andre Drummond)
Waiters' original slot: Fourth overall.
Waiters hasn't performed well enough in his career to justify his fourth overall selection, however he still stays in the top-10 in this redraft. Waiters is a pure scorer, averaging double digits in points in all but one season in the NBA. Though he only played 46 games last season in his first year with Miami, it looks as if he has found a home for himself. He averaged 15.8 PPG, just shy of his career high in scoring, however he had career highs in both field goals attempted per game and three-point percentage. He is getting more touches and having success, and his play last season is why he remains in the top-10.
10. New Orleans Hornets- Kent Bazemore (Original Selection: Austin Rivers)
Bazemore's original slot: Undrafted.
Three second round picks have cracked the top-10 in this redraft, and now we have an undrafted player find their way in the top-10. On that night in 2012, NBA scouts saw 60 players better than Bazemore, but his play over the last five seasons has proved otherwise. After bouncing back-and-forth from the NBA and the D-League with the Golden State Warriors, Bazemore was dealt to the Lakers in February 2014. In 23 games with the Lakers, he made 15 starts and averaged 13.1 PPG. He then signed with the Atlanta Hawks the following offseason, and has since become one of their best role players. He has averaged over 11 PPG in each of the last two seasons, and has also shot over 40% both seasons. Bazemore has shown that he is far better than the scouts projected, which is why he cracks the top-10 in this redraft.
