The results of the 2021 NBA Draft Lottery have the San Antonio Spurs selecting in their expected 12th spot. In a nebulous area of the lottery, there are dozens of names they could opt to select that could make an immediate impact.
Yesterday, Air Alamo site co-expert Roberto Araiza released his NBA Draft Lottery Mock Draft 1.0, in which he predicted how the top 14 teams will be selecting in July's NBA Draft. Overall, we've been writing up several individual prospect profiles, addressing team needs, and providing rankings since the season ended, which you can find here.
With the full first round set in stone, now it's time to see what the national media is saying when it comes to what the Spurs will decide in the first round. Given that we still have over one month until draft day, later predictions will be updated in future editions of this mock draft media round-up. Let's get started.
