Do not consider fit. Who are the top 17 prospects? Also feel free to explain your choices. The results will be updated in this post. If you wish to edit your list, please write a new post explaining the edit so it is easier for me to see.
 
Feel free to list more, but only the top 17 will get points here. 17 points for a #1 ranking, 1 point for a #17 ranking etc. No ties in your lists. Ties are for soccer.

So the takeaway so far is that everyone is going to be pissed when Danny drafts Randle at 6?

On second thought, I should flip Randle and Payton, but yeah, I wouldn't be happy.  He's very quick and has a good handle for a guy his size, so he'll be able to beat other PFs off of the dribble, but I don't know if he'll be able to finish over NBA big men.  He's strong enough to hold his own down low, but not long enough to challenge shots effectively,  If Olynyk or Sullinger is on the move, then I'd be less disappointed with the pick.
