There are plenty of knowledgable NBA fans who spend hours on Twitter exchanging ideas and debating all sorts of basketball-related issues, including the NBA Draft. To include those fans and make use of their collective intelligence, I began a mock draft under the hashtag #NBATwitter in September. The draft selections are made by utilizing Twitter polling, which features a maximum of four choices, though write-in votes via replies to the poll are also counted. I select the four options for each pick by considering the best available from the latest collective rankings from various draft websites, including Hoops Prospects’ Draft Board.

This mock draft will not be completed until mid November — we’re making one pick per day. I’ll be regularly updating this post with the latest selections, and you can participate by either following me on Twitter @HoopsProspects or by searching for the hashtag #NBATwitter. I appreciate everyone’s participation. Also, make sure to check out the official Hoops Prospects Mock Draft while you are here.

Thanks for voting.
