No, it’s not just the ridiculous New York heat that is making you sweat right now.

 

The 2017 NBA draft is just about one week from getting underway at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on June 22 and it feels as though the basketball world is sitting on a ticking time bomb.

 

Something large is about to go down, we just don’t know what yet. Whether it’s a big trade or ridiculous free-agent signing during the summer, or even a draft night stunner.

 

Luckily, we get a front-row seat to all the action. For now, here is the penultimate and third version of my first-round mock draft.

 

You can also check out versions 1.0 and 2.0 and find me on Twitter @JoePantorno to let me know how you think each team should approach the draft. Or you can just be angry with me for voicing my opinions.
