The 2016-"17 NBA season is almost here, with an opening night matchup of the Knicks and Cavaliers set for Tuesday, Oct. 25. For those in fantasy leagues, that means it"s time to draft, and what better way to answer "Who should I draft?", practice draft strategy, check out rankings, and see where your favorite sleepers are going off the board than participating in a fantasy basketball mock draft?


But it takes too long to participate in a bunch of mocks, right? You"re already busy staying on top of player updates so you know who"s injured and who"s healthy. Well, good news -- our friends at FantasyPros have an invaluable tool that lets you simulate mock drafts in minutes (or even seconds).
