The NBA Draft is 9 days away, with some talent at the top that will contribute to there new teams right away. Let’s jump right in.
1)Orlando Magic- Chet Holmgren (PF) Gonzaga
It came down to him and Smith. Just seeing the 7′ by his name puts him over. So close but his game with Wendell Carter Jr is a nice mix for the Magic.
2)Oklahoma City Thunder- Jabari Smith (PF) Auburn
One of 818 1st rounders the Thunder have coming up. HIs inside presence with will allow the Thunder to draft more shooters.
3)Houston Rockets- Paolo Banchero (PF) Duke
The Rockets are another team putting together pieces. Houston fans will enjoy seeing he and Jalen Green form a new centerpiece to the Rockets.
4)Sacramento Kings- Jalen Duren (C) Memphis
The right fit even if it may be a little high for some.
5)Detroit Pistons- Bennedict Mathurin (SF) Arizona
I’d really like to see the youth of Hayes, Cunningham, and Mathurin develop the outside game and defensive presence.
6) Indiana Pacers- Jaden Ivey (PG) Purdue
The new distributor stays in State, oh he can score too.
7)Portland Trail Blazers- Keegan Murray (PF) Iowa
8)New Orleans Pelicans- Shaedon Sharpe (SG) Kentucky
9)San Antonio Spurs- Johnny Davis (SG) Wisconsin
10:Washington Wizards- Dyson Daniels (PG) G-League Ignite
11)New York Knicks- Mark Williams (C) Duke
12)Oklahoma City Thunder- A.J Griffin (SF) Duke
13)Charlotte Hornets- Jaden Hardy (SG) G-League Ignite
14)Cleveland Cavaliers- Malaki Branham (SG) Ohio State
