The 2015 NBA Draft is over, as Karl-Anthony Towns out of Kentucky ended up being the expected number one overall pick, going to try and build a nice future with the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Following Towns was D’Angelo Russell, picked by the Los Angeles Lakers. This came as something of a surprise considering Jahlil Okafor (third, Philadelphia 76ers) was hyped up as the number two guy all along. But a day before the draft came this rumor which made a lot of sense considering their biggest needs.

It’s the third straight draft in which the 76ers pick a big man. Okafor, coming out of Duke, is much better offensively than both Nerlens Noel or Joel Embiid. More importantly, he’s healthy and ready to start the season, and isn’t a one-year (or more) rehabilitation project. Center? Power forward? It doesn’t really matter. The Sixers needed someone who can help right away like the deserts need the rain.

Following the top 3 came the two European, international picks. The New York Knicks ended up keeping the fourth overall pick and taking the intriguing Kristaps Porzingis, who many think has the biggest upside of any other player in this draft pick. Mario Hezonja, the Croatian wing player out of Barcelona, rounded off the top 5, taken by the Orlando Magic.

For now, the Kings aren’t trading DeMarcus Cousins. Instead, they took Willie Cauley-Stein with the sixth overall pick, possibly moving Cousins to power forward next to the former Kentucky big man. Emmanuel Mudiay, potentially a top 5 pick a month ago, ended up going 7th to the Denver Nuggets, which means Ty Lawson is probably going to be traded pretty soon.

The final picks of the top 10 were Stanley Johnson out of Arizona going to the Detroit Pistons, Frank Kaminsky slightly surprising going ninth to the Charlotte Hornets and 10th was Justise Winslow out of Duke, heading to the Miami Heat.
