2020 NBA Mock Draft: Final Mock 2 Rounds




Round 1 Picks 1-15



My final 2020 NBA Mock Draft is now up. This one will be two rounds. Enjoy!



Chris Ransom follow @DraftUtopia Last Updated: November 18, 2020.


  1. Minnesota Timberwolves: Anthony Edwards, SG, Georgia

    I was lucky enough to have the second most accurate NBA Mock in 2016, before having the most accurate NBA Mock from 2017 to 2019. The 2020 NBA Draft is clearly the hardest NBA Mock I've made in my history of doing mock drafts at Draft Utopia because there is so much uncertainty with this draft class. You could also argue while this draft has talent, the top player in this draft has less upside than the top 3 players in the 2019 NBA Draft and less upside then the top two picks in the 2021 NBA Draft. You came to this site to find out who Minnesota is taking at one so let's get this final 2020 NBA mock underway.


    Minnesota won the 2020 NBA Draft Lottery for the second time in franchise history and the first time since 2015 when they drafted center Karl Anthony-Towns first overall. Point guard D'Angelo Russell represented Minnesota at the 2020 NBA Draft Lottery. Shooting guard Malik Beasley also averaged above 20 points per game in 14 games.


    Minnesota has center Karl Anthony-Towns and guard D'Angelo Russell to build around as their building blocks for the future as both players averaged 23.1 points per game or more before the NBA suspended play. D'Angelo Russell was mainly a point guard when he was drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers coming out of Ohio State. Lamelo Ball did poorly in team interviews with Minnesota while Anthony Edwards has been the guy I mocked to Minnesota since August.


    It's pretty evident that this pick will either be Anthony Edwards out of Georgia or Lamelo Ball of the Illawara Hawks. Minnesota interviewed Ball leading up to the draft, and there were reports that if Minnesota could not find someone to trade down with, that they would take Lamelo Ball first overall. Most NBA mocks, had a consensus number one by draft day, but it's about a 50/50 split between Ball and Edwards at 1 and I've felt like Edwards is the better player.


    There are a lot of interviews and rumors saying Minnesota will go with Lamelo Ball at 1 a month or two ago after I did my first Post-Lottery mock in August. Now a lot of those NBA Draft sites are warming up to the idea of Minnesota taking Anthony Edwards at 1 who I mocked to Minnesota three months ago.


    The 6-5 225 lb Anthony Edwards is a pure 2 at shooting guard. Adding him next to D'Angelo Russell and Karl Anthony-Towns gives Minnesota three star players to build around as well as their own version of the Splash Brothers with Russell and Edwards.


    Anthony Edwards shot short range, mid range, and long range shots effectively on film. Great passer with terrific court vision. Has the offensive awareness, defensive awareness, and basketball IQ you want an NBA shooting guard to have. Can develop into someone that defends well against 1 and 2s. He can shutdown a guard opposing him.


    Anthony Edwards had 19.1 points per game, 5.2 rebounds per game, 2.8 assists per game, 1.3 blocks per game, a 40.2% field goal percentage, 77.2% free throw percentage and a 29.4% three point percentage in 32 games. He gives Minnesota a shooting guard and perhaps even the best player in this draft, which will change the fortunes of their franchise. Dwayne Wade gave Edwards an endoresment while Lamelo Ball interviewed poorly and that played a role in my decision to keep Edwards here.


    Anthony Edwards can easily score between 21-25 points per game at the NBA level depending on how many three point shots he hits in the NBA. He has the offensive awareness, passing, short range, mid range, long range, He has the ceiling to develop into a player that averages 35 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2 steals per game. Minnesota may finally get to the playoffs with Edwards, but they will not win a playoff series in 2021 until they improve their forward play.


  2. Golden State Warriors: James Wiseman, C, Memphis

    Golden State interviewed 6 players and brought 4 of those players were brought in for multiple workouts. Only two of those four players James Wiseman and Deni Avdija received multiple interviews with Golden State. I honestly feel like James Wiseman is a lock to go here at 2 unless Charlotte moves up to 1 with Minnesota for Wiseman since there were reports that Mitch Kupchak has Wiseman atop his big board. I feel the same way as Wiseman is my top ranked prospect in this years NBA Draft. I had Wiseman on Golden State in all three of my 2020 NBA Mocks this year, with my first NBA Mock Draft back in April.


    Golden State will have a healthy Steph Curry at point guard and a healthy Klay Thompson at shooting guard. You also got Andrew Wiggins the former first pick in the 2014 NBA Draft as your small forward thanks to the Timberwolves trade with D'Angelo Russell which sent Russell from Golden State to Minnesota and complimenting Wiggins at small forward is power forward Draymond Green. Now you add the top player in the 2020 NBA Draft Memphis center James Wiseman to this team and Golden State can rebound with one of the most stacked starting fives as early as next season with this second overall pick.


    The 7-1 240 lb James Wiseman is a big who shot short range, mid range, and long range shots effectively on film. Great passer with terrific court vision. Has the offensive awareness, defensive awareness, and basketball IQ you want an NBA center to have. He is also an excellent defender who can defend 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5's much like DeAndre Ayton could two years ago coming out of Arizona.


    James Wiseman had 19.7 points per game, 10.7 rebounds per game, 3 blocks per game, a 76.9% field goal percentage, and a 70.4% free throw percentage in 3 games in 2019 before being dismissed from Memphis for NCAA recruiting violations. Wiseman hit three point shots constantly in High School which led to him being the to being the top overall recruit in 2019. I am not blaming Wiseman, but rather the coaching staff at Memphis for restricting that part of his game on film as well as the NCAA for suspending Wiseman since everyone who watched High School Basketball last year knew Wiseman was the top player in the 2020 NBA Draft.


    James Wiseman can easily score between 21-25 points per game at the NBA level depending on how many three point shots he hits in the NBA. He has the ceiling to develop into a player that averages 35 points, 16 rebounds, 5 assists, 3 blocks, and 2 steals per game.


    With Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Andrew Wiggins, and Draymond Green he gives Golden State another big perimeter defender to aid Green as well as a fifth passer and shooter who can sling it anywhere from short range, medium range, or long range. He will not need to average 35 points per game as long as the "Splash Brothers" remain in Golden State. At the same time he has the skill set and ability to step up to the plate carrying a team if the Warriors continue to deal with injuries like they did this past season.



  3. Charlotte Hornets: LaMelo Ball, PG, Illawarra

    The Charlotte Hornets have Devonte Graham at point guard, Malik Monk at shooting guard, Miles Bridges at small forward, P.J. Washington at power forward, and Cody Zeller at center. All of these guys are coming back so Charlotte can ignore need and take the best player on their board at 3.


    Charlotte gets a point guard who can push Devonte Graham for the starting point guard job. They lost Kemba Walker, and while Graham did well at point guard, he doesn't have that starpower that Walker has. Also, Ball could end up developing into a player that has that star power and presence that Walker had.


    The 6-8 180 lb LaMelo Ball had 17 points per game, 7.5 rebounds per game, and 7 assists per game. Lonzo Ball's younger brother also won the 2019-2020 NBL Rookie Of The Year Award without enrolling in College so he's going to get picked in the top 5. He is a better passer than Lonzo and has the ability to hit short range, medium range, and long range shots. Exceptional offensive awareness like his older brother had. He's talented, but he did not have the shot selection or defense that Lonzo displayed coming out of UCLA since Lonzo showed the ability to defend against 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5's in College. LaMelo mainly defends against pro guards in Australia, but he struggled defensively despite showing the upside to defend effectively.


  4. Chicago Bulls: Deni Avdija, SF, Maccabi Tel Aviv

    Chicago has a starting five with Coby White at point guard, Zach LeVine at shooting guard, Otto Porter Jr. at small forward, Lauri Markanen at power forward, and Wendell Carter Jr. at center. They still have Kris Dunn for depth, but he's officially a bust after losing his starting job to White.


    Otto Porter Jr. only played 14 games and the former Georgetown Hoya has never played a full 82 game season in his entire NBA career. Also Otto Porter Jr. has a player option so even if he stays with the Bulls for another season getting someone for depth to push him or someone who can step in if Otto Porter Jr. gets injured would help this Chicago Bulls squad immensely.


    Chicago gets small forward Deni Avdija here. I cannot see Deni Avdija slipping past Chicago unless Lamelo Ball or Anthony Edwards makes it 4. If one of those players goes fourth overall, then that player would get priority over Deni Avdija at 4.


    Deni Avdija shot short range, mid range, and long range shots effectively on film. Great passer with terrific court vision. Has the offensive awareness, defensive awareness, and basketball IQ you want an NBA small forward to have. He is also an excellent defender who can defend 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5's.


    The 6-9 215 lb small forward had 12.3 points per game, 5.9 rebounds per game, and 2.4 assists per game. Not only did Deni Avdija interview well, he has a tremendous work ethic. Avdija is the one small forward in this draft who could step up and do an admirable job replacing Otto Porter Jr when he's injured. Everyone else at small forward in this draft is a clear downgrade over Otto Porter Jr.



  5. Cleveland Cavaliers: Obi Toppin, PF, Dayton

    Cleveland has a good starting five with Darius Garland at point guard, Collin Sexton moved to shooting guard, Cedi Osman is the small forward, Kevin Love is the power forward, and Andre Drummond is expected to exercise his player option to remain with the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2020-2021 meaning all five of Cleveland's starters that averaged over 10 points per game with the Cavaliers would be back for one more season in Cleveland.


    Now that Cleveland dropped to 5, the only position they may be able to upgrade with this starting five is small forward, but they could possibly upgrade at power forward as well since the Cavaliers placed Kevin Love on the trading block.


    The 6-9 220 lb Obi Toppin played center at Dayton, but he passes with such precision. Toppin even has these trick shot passes that you would see from the Harlem Globe Trotters. Offensively, he plays like a point guard and shoots like a point guard with exceptional short range, mid range, and long range on tape. He struggles against 4's and 5's defensively and can only defend effectively against 1's, 2's, and 3's. Toppin is also inconstent defensively as a player which is another reason scouts are concerned about Toppin at the next level.


    Obi Toppin had 14.4 points per game, 5.6 rebounds per game, 1.8 assists per game, a 52.4% three point percentage, a 66.6% field goal percentage, and a 71.3% free throw percentage as a true freshman in 2019-2020. Toppin returned to Dayton and had 20 points per game, 7.5 rebounds per game, 2.2 assists per game, 1.2 blocks per game, 1 steal per game, a 39% three point percentage, a 63.3% field goal percenttage, and a 70.4% free throw percentage. His play last season won him the James Naismith Award for the top player in College Basketball.


    Obi Toppin was the leader of this 29-2 Dayton squad despite being a 22-year-old sophomore. He needs two years to develop as a defender if he expects to be an All Star caliber player offensively and defensively on both ends of the floor. At the same time, Obi Toppin could be the steal of the top 5 if Cleveland has him learn under Kevin Love and finds a way to get the most out of him.


    Previous Pick: Isaac Okoro, SF, Auburn

  6. Atlanta Hawks: Onyeka Okongwu, PF, USC

    Atlanta has Trae Young at point guard, Kevin Huerter at shooting guard, De'Andre Hunter at small forward, John Collins at power forward, and Clint Capella at center. Atlanta drafted four of those players in the first round of the past three NBA drafts and hit on all three while trading for Houston Rockets center Clint Capella who averaged 13.9 points per game and 13.8 rebounds per game in 2019-2020 before getting injured.


    Atlanta also has Cam Reddish for depth at small forward, who they got at ten in the 2019 NBA Draft after selecting Hunter at 4. Reddish is also versatile enough to play shooting guard, but he's a better fit at small forward in my opinion.


    The 6-9 245 lb Onyeka Okongwu averaged 16.2 points per game and 8.6 rebounds per game with USC in 2019-2020 after being High School teammates with Lamelo Ball at Chino Hills, he's interviewed much better than Ball has which is why he's now a lock for the top 7 in my opinion. He's versatile enough to play power forward or center and is a good passer on tape. He can shoot short and mid range shots. Defends well against 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5's. He is the best defender not named James Wiseman in the 2020 NBA Draft. There are reports that Boston Celtics GM Danny Ainge contacted both the Cleveland Cavaliers at 5 and the Atlanta Hawks at 6 about Onyeka Okongwu so I doubt Okongwu gets past this pick.


    Onyeka Okongwu only took 4 three point shots all season at USC. Only one of those went in. Atlanta grabs Onyeka Okongwu since he's a great rim protector, shot blocker, and rebounder. Atlanta needs to draft someone who will boost their defensive presence if they keep this pick at 6. Charlotte and Cleveland met with Okongwu as he was seen as someone who was complete defensively, but a project offensively. If he was a better three point shooter, you could argue that he's a lock for the top 3, but in this mock he goes sixth overall to Atlanta as a backup to John Collins.


    Previous Pick: Killian Hayes, PG, Ratiopharm Ulm


  7. Detroit Pistons: Killian Hayes, PG, Ratiopharm Ulm

    The Pistons have Derrick Rose who is a good point guard when healthy with the keywords being when healthy. Shooting guard Luka Donic is the best long-term player on this franchise. Power forward Blake Griffin is the other star player on this team. The Detroit Pistons ignored small forward in the 2019 NBA Draft and now need a replacement for Andre Drummond at center.


    Detroit could draft for need at 7. The two best players on the board at 7 are Killian Hayes and Tyrese Halliburton. Instead they draft for value since the best player on the board is a point guard who could start out as a depth player and then come in to replace Derrick Rose the moment Rose gets injured again.


    The 6-5 187 lb Killian Hayes is versatile enough to play both point guard and shooting guard with his versatility. The 18-year-old guard is an effective two guard for depth and is capable of being a serviceable backup in Atlanta. His father Deron Hayes has been a small forward in France dating back to 1993 and still plays pro ball overseas in France even at age 49 so Killian has the versatility to defend against 1, 2, and 3's. Killian also has superb offensive awareness, the elite court vision to read a play, passing, ability to shoot short range, mid range, and long range shots.


    Killian Hayes had 11.6 points per game, 5.3 assists per game, a 50% field goal percentage, a 85% free throw percentage, and a 22% three point percentage when playing with Ratiopharm Ulm in Germany. Hayes is a young man that will benefit greatly from learning under Derrick Rose in Detroit.


    Previous Pick: Tyrese Halliburton, PG, Iowa State

  8. New York Knicks: Tyrese Halliburton, PG, Iowa State

    New York has four players that averaged over 10 points per game this season with rookie small forward/shooting guard R.J. Barrett who appears to be New York's best draft pick since Kristaps Porzingis. Two of the other three players are power forwards including power forward Julius Randle, power forward Bobby Portis, and point guard Elfrid Peyton. Center Mitchell Robinson only played 7 games due to injury which forced the Knicks to move Randle to center and Portis from a bench player to a starting power forward which has worked out better for the Knicks.


    The 6-5 175 lb Tyrese Halliburton has the best passing of any point guard in College Basketball. The only player in the top 8 that may be a better assist man than Halliburton is LaMelo Ball. Haliburton can shoot from short range, mid range, or long range. Displays the offensive awareness you want. He defends well against 1's and 2's, but will struggle against 3's, 4's and 5's defensively due to inconsistent play with off ball and does not execute off of ISO defense.


    Tyrese Halliburton had 15.2 points per game, 6.5 assists per game, 5.9 rebounds per game, and 2.5 steals per game in his sophomore season with Iowa State.


    Tyrese Halliburton can score and be an impact player. He is very consistent from a game log standpoint. However, he seems more like a consistent floor general than a perrenial All Star. Halliburton could be an All Star if he fixes his shooting form and improves his defense so drafting him to develop rather than drafting him and hoping for an immediate starter is the route to go.


    Previous Pick: Devin Vassell, SG, Florida State


  9. Washington Wizards: Isaac Okoro, SF, Auburn

    The Washington Wizards have John Wall at point guard, Bradley Beal at shooting guard, Davis Bertans at small forward, Rui Hachimura at power forward, and Thomas Bryant at center. They need someone to push Troy Brown for the starting small forward job after Brown only averaged 4.8 points per game. Backup point guards like Ish Smith and Shabazz Napier have scored in relief of John Wall. Jerome Robinson, Troy Brown Jr., and Moritz Wagner provide solid depth behind the current starters. John Wall is the face of this team though and his absence is why the Wizards are where they are at.


    Washington gets Auburn small forward Isaac Okoro here. The 6-6 225 lb Isaac Okoro can pass the ball. He hits shots from short range, medium range, and long range. He does not hit these shots on a consistent basis and he's an awful defender. Samir Doughty led Auburn in scoring despite being a senior and second round prospect so Okoro feels like a boom or bust pick which has to make you feel a little bit skeptical about how his skill set will translate to the NBA if you are a Wizard fan.


    The 19-year-old Isaac Okoro had 12.9 points per game, 4.4 rebounds per game, 2 assists per game, a 51.4% field goal percentage, a 67.2% free throw percentage, and a 29% three point percentage. Okoro scored a minimum of 7 points in every game he played this season so his consistency as a scorer is one of the biggest reasons he is projected to go in the top 10. Okoro needs to improve his three point shooting at the next level if he has any shot of taking the small forward job from Troy Brown Jr.


    Previous Pick: Onyeka Okongwu, PF, USC

  10. Phoenix Suns: Kira Lewis Jr., PG, Alabama

    The Phoenix Suns have a good starting five with Chris Paul at point guard, Devin Booker at shooting guard, Mikal Bridges at small forward plus Cameron Johnson for depth at the 3, Frank Kaminsky at power forward, and DeAndre Ayton at center. Ayton's 25 game suspension for a failed drug test cost the Suns a playoff spot, but the talent is there for this team to be competitive next season.


    The only position the Suns may be able to upgrade in the starting five lies at either point guard or power forward. Frank Kaminsky has a club option clause in his contract.


    The 6-3 165 lb Kira Lewis Jr. had 18.5 points per game, 5.2 assists per game, 4.8 rebounds per game, a 41.2% field goal percentage, 30.4% three point percentage, and a 72.9% free throw percentage. He's a great passer and defender even though shooting is his main strength. Decision making along with awareness on both offense and defense are two areas he needs to improve.


    He's a fantastic listener and he's got the basketball IQ to be a big time star even though his decision making is raw coming out of Alabama. That should improve over time if he goes to a team with a good coach or good point guard to learn under.


    Back in August, I said that Kira Lewis Jr. would be one of the steals in the back half of the first round if he fell that far. With teams like the Detroit Pistons, New York Knicks, and Phoenix Suns working him out, Kira Lewis Jr. is no longer a secret or an under the radar prospect. He's now a bonafide top ten pick who would thrive learning under someone like Ricky Rubio since he has a higher ceiling than Rubio, but could learn how to improve his decision making under Rubio.


    Previous Pick: Obi Toppin, PF, Dayton


  11. San Antonio Spurs: Tyrell Terry, PG, Stanford

    The San Antonio Spurs have a lot of quality players with Dejounte Murray as the starting point guard with Patrick Mills as the backup point guard. Both point guards averaged 10 points per game with Mills stepping up while Murray is injured. San Antonio also has Bryn Forbes playing well at shooting guard with 2017 first round pick out of Colorado Derrick White stepping up averaging over 10 points per game while 2018 first round pick Lonnie Walker IV is injured. San Antonio also has two of the NBA's best forwards in small forward DeMar DeRozan and power forward Lamarcus Aldridge. Backup small forward Rudy Gay has steped up as well.


    San Antonio took Luke Samanic and Keldon Johnson in the first round in 2019, so getting depth at small forward and power forward is not an issue. Jakob Poetl showed promise at Utah, but Toronto traded him to San Antonio and he hasn't gotten the job done during his last two years in San Antonio.


    San Antonio could get Vernon Carey Jr. here at center, but that's a reach because this draft doesn't have a center of Bol Bol's talent outside of the top 10 and the only center that may have a higher ceiling than Bol Bol is Wiseman so I will refrain from giving the Spurs a center until 41. With this pick at 11, I am giving the Spurs a player who may be an upgrade over both of their current point guards.


    The 6-1 160 lb Tyrell Terry had 14.6 points per game, 4.5 rebounds per game, 3.2 assists per game, 1.4 steals per game, a 44.1% field goal percentage, a 40.8% three point percentage, and a 89.1% free throw percentage as a freshman. Tyrell Terry impressed in his workout with the Spurs.


    Previous Pick: Cole Anthony, PG, North Carolina

  12. Sacramento Kings: R.J. Hampton, PG, NZ Breakers

    Point guard De'Aaron Fox, shooting guard Buddy Hield, small forward Harrison Barnes, and power forward Marvin Bagley III, and center Richaun Holmes make a good starting five when healthy. You also have backups like Jabari Parker and Nemanja Bjelica who are doing well in relief roles, yet Sacramento still cannot put themselves in a position to push for a playoff spot due to injuries with Marvin Bagley III and Richaun Holmes.


    I'm giving Sacramento R.J. Hampton for depth at point guard behind De'Aaron Fox since Fox didn't play in every NBA game this season due to injuries. Hampton impressed in a win over the Illawara Hawks where he scored 12 points in a start for the NZ Breakers where Hampton exposed Lamelo Ball defensively on tape. That's why Hampton is now back in my lottery.


    Previous Pick: Percious Achiuwa, PF, Memphis


  13. New Orleans Pelicans: Aaron Nesmith, SF, Vanderbilt

    New Orleans has Lonzo Ball and Jrue Holliday at point guard with J.J. Reddick and Josh Hart at shooting guard with all four guards averaging over 10 points per game. Small forward Brandon Ingram and rookie power forward Zion Williamson are their two leading scorers. This team still lacks a starting center, but last years other first round pick Jaxson Hayes could still develop into a starting center down the road with a good offseason.


    The Pelicans can ignore need and take the best player on the board here. Aaron Nesmith is a player that is generating buzz as a lottery pick despite suffering a season ending injury in 2019.


    The 6-6 213 lb Aaron Nesmith is an ideal wing at small forward who has the versatility to move to shooting guard if you need him to. Aaron Nesmith had 11 points, 5.5 rebounds, 1.4 assists, a 39.2% field goal percentage, a 33.7% three point percentage, and a 82.5% free throw percentage in 2018-2019 as a true freshman in 32 games when Darius Garland got injured.


    Nesmith improved by leaps and bounds in 2019-2020. Aaron Nesmith had 23 points per game, 4.9 rebounds per game, 0.9 assists per game, a 51.2% field goal percentage, a 52.2% three point percentage, and matched his 82.5% free throw percentage from his freshman season.


    The downside is his right foot injury caused him to miss the season. Even if Nesmith is good in the NBA there is no guarantee he can play a full 82 game season with only 46 career starts in two seasons at Vanderbilt. Vanderbilt head coach Jerry Stackhouse coach deserves a lot of credit for coaching up Nesmith in his first season as Vanderbilt's head coach.


  14. Boston Celtics: Percious Achiuwa, PF, Memphis

    Boston finally got this first round pick from Memphis after trading Jeff Green to Memphis. Boston has point guard Kemba Walker, shooting guard Jaylen Brown, small forward Gordon Hayward, and power forward Jayson Tatum. This team still needs a center. However, I am going to give them a power forward from the Memphis Tigers as the Celtics are drafting with the Memphis Grizzlies first round pick thanks to the Jeff Green trade.


    The 6-9 225 lb Percious Achiuwa can play small forward or power forward with his versatility. He passes shoots short range, mid range, long range, gets offensive rebounds, defensive rebounds, blocks, and steals. After James Wiseman did not return to Memphis, Percious Achiuwa took over as the leader of the Memphis Tigers.


    Percious Achiuwa had 15.8 points per game, 10.8 rebounds per game, 1.9 blocks per game, 1.1 steals per game, 1 assist per game, a 49.3% field goal percentage, a 36.4% three point percentage, and a 58.2% free throw percentage as a freshman. Percious Achiuwa worked out with the Boston Celtics. I believe he's the Celtics guy at 14 if they cannot trade up for Onyeka Okongwu.


    Previous Pick: Jaden McDaniels, SF, Washington

  15. Orlando Magic: Devin Vassell, SG, Florida State

    Orlando has Markelle Fultz at point guard, shooting guard Evan Fournier, small forward Aaron Gordon, power forward Jonathan Isaac, and center Nikola Vucevic. They have a good starting five and can take the best player on the board at 15 by selecting Devin Vassell out of Florida State.


    The 6-6 180 lb Devin Vassell is an absolute steal for the Orlando Magic at 15. Devin Vassell can shoot from short range, mid range, or long range. Great passer with terrific court vision. Has the offensive awareness, defensive awareness, and basketball IQ you want an NBA shooting guard to have. He is also an excellent defender who can defend 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5's. Devin Vassell is the best defender in this draft not named James Wiseman or Onyeka Okongwu.


    Previous Pick: Tyrese Maxey, PG, Kentucky
