NBA Mock Draft: CelticsBlog community mock draft: Pick 6

Pick a name from a hat.

Ed Szczepanski-USA TODAY Sports

With the fifth pick in the CelticsBlog community mock draft, the Orlando Magic select... Justise Winslow.

The Magic kiddie corps adds another youngster.  They now have a potential future lineup of Elfrid Payton, Victor Oladipo, Winslow, Aaron Gordon, and Nikola Vucevic.  That could be awfully awesome or awesomely awful.  Time will tell.

The next pick goes to the Sacramento Kings, no strangers to the Lottery. In theory they'll take the best player available but I'm not sure if there's enough separation at this level in the lottery to distinguish the next few guys from one another.  I could be wrong, so you are here to tell me I'm wrong.  Still, if BPA is about even, then you can start to look for team needs.

The Kings have a center in place in DeMarcus Cousins, but I wouldn't rule out them taking Willie Cauley-Stein to be a defensive anchor and shifting Cousins over to power forward.

They've used two straight lottery picks on shooting guards, so in theory that isn't a position of need - at least through the draft.  Just about any other position is up for grabs though (Gay can swing between the 3 and 4 spots).

So who would you pick for the Kings?
