NBA Mock Draft 3.0: Top 10 Picks

The NBA was thrown into uncertainty along with much of the rest of the world by the coronavirus. By the end of March, the league's regular season remained suspended, with no clear time table for a return, as the pandemic raged on across the US and abroad.

While the NBA season was put on hiatus, the NCAA Tournament was cancelled outright, in an unprecedented move. In the face of a devastating contagion with no discernible end in sight, it was the only sensible choice.

The tragic and awkward situation has upended nearly every facet of life, including the sports calendar. The NBA Draft appears next in line. Recent reports suggest it will be postponed from June 25 until after the season concludes, either after play is resumed on a modified schedule, or the balance of games is cancelled outright.

What does this mean for how the draft plays out when it's finally held? It's hard to say. Obviously, there was no March Madness to boost or sink a player's stock. There's no game tape on players beyond March 11. Teams will have to do their due diligence in new ways, under new circumstances.

On that uplifting note, we've taken a crack at a mock draft (order simulated at Tankathon). What are drafts about if not fresh hope and new beginnings?
