6'3"/183

Simons wing span was a major selling point and he has zero college experience. Simons is an excellent driver and ball-handler and will throwdown fancy dunks and he'll draw contact in the lane. Simons is one of the most intriguing players in the draft because of lack of experience, but he creates space for himself when on the ball.

Updated at: Thu June 21st 10:12 PM
25. Moritz Wagner
Lakers, Center, Michigan
6'11"/241

Wagner is known more for offense than his defense. He did pull down seven boards per game, but he spends a lot of time on the perimeter.

Updated at: Thu June 21st 11:03 PM
34. Devonte' Graham
Hornets, Point Guard, Kansas
6'1"/186

Graham is a good all-around player who dished over seven assists last season. He'll play a big role in the offense if given the minutes early. His defense should earn him more playing time. He grabbed 1.6 steals per game last season. He shoots over 40 percent from long distance. 

Updated at: Thu June 21st 11:17 PM
35. Melvin Frazier
Magic, Small Forward, Tulane
6'6"/198

Frazier is a quick defender who grabbed over two steals per game last season. It's hard to lose him if matched up against him as he's excellent at using his agility to stay on defenders. He needs to work on his long-range game, but he'll hit a lot of mid-range jumpers by the elbow. He also grabbed 5.6 boards per game.

Updated at: Thu June 21st 11:10 PM

Updated at: Thu June 21st 11:20 PM
37. Gary Trent Jr.
Trail Blazers, Shooting Guard, Duke
6'5"/204

Trent is an excellent shooter, especially from long-range. He'll need to work on his defense as he enters the league, but should see plenty of opportunities with the second unit in Portland. He's a smart player with a high Basketball I.Q. when bringing the ball up, but needs to keep better track of his defender on the other side of the ball. He can hit pressure shot while barely getting a look. 

Updated at: Fri June 22nd 12:06 AM
38. Khyri Thomas
Pistons, Shooting Guard, Creighton

6'10"/190

We won't be seeing Kurucs for a bit, but he's a good ball-handler and makes a lot of smart decisions with the ball. He'll drive with force and is a good finisher at the rim. Expect him to draw a good amount of contact off of pump fakes. He still needs more development. 

Updated at: Fri June 22nd 12:13 AM
41. Jarred Vanderbilt
Nuggets, Small Forward, Kentucky
6'8"/214

Vanderbilt is a committed defender who will pull down a good amount of rebounds if he gets consistent minutes. Even though he has good "ups", he still needs to improve his timing with his jumps and shot-blocking ability. He's good at finding openings in the paint to position himself for offensive rebounds. 

Updated at: Fri June 22nd 12:15 AM
42. Bruce Brown Jr.
Pistons, Shooting Guard, Miami
6'5"/195

Brown is a more useful defensive weapon as he grabbed over seven boards and even 1.3 steals per game on the perimeter. Brown's jumper will need to develop and he is able to get to the basket, but it will be his defense that keeps him on the floor. He's also a good passer from the elbow to his the low-post player. 

Updated at: Fri June 22nd 12:18 AM
43. Justin Jackson
Magic, Small Forward, Maryland
6'6"/229

Jackson will also earn minutes from his defense as he always finds a way to creep into the paint and keep plays alive. He's a good post defender who grabs a lot of boards and he'll stop the momentum from the opposition on transition by cutting off the lane allowing his team to get re-organize.

Updated at: Fri June 22nd 12:21 AM
44. Issuf Sanon

Updated at: Fri June 22nd 12:25 AM
45. Hamidou Diallo
Hornets, Shooting Guard, Kentucky
6'5"/198

Diallo is a very explosive guard who drives to the rack hard. He'll need to continue developing his jumper, but he's aggressive in the paint and he plays just as aggressive defense on the other side of the ball. He controls his speed while driving which shows that the conditioning of his body is good and will help his development. 

Updated at: Fri June 22nd 12:28 AM
46. De'Anthony Melton
Rockets, Shooting Guard, USC
6'4"/180

Melton will mainly help on the defensive end by grabbing boards and steals. If offense is needed on the floor, he will likely be benched until he shows improvement in his offensive game overall. He is a decent passer in the post as he's proven he's able to hit the cutter.  

 

 

 

Updated at: Fri June 22nd 12:31 AM

Lakers, Small Forward, Kansas

48. Keita Bates-Diop
Timberwolves, Small Forward, Ohio State
6'8"/224

He's got very good post moves that allow him to gain positioning in the lane. He's an effective scorer and rebounder and hustles on the defensive end and gets a lot of boards while out of position. He blocked 1.6 shots per game last season. 

Updated at: Fri June 22nd 12:35 AM
49. Chimezie Metu
Spurs, Power Forward, USC
6'110"/220

Metu has to develop on the offensive end, but his defense is further along. He has good rebounding ability. He's got a good mid-range game, but he'll have to improve his post-game and finishing at the rim. He'll get openings at the elbow and will be beneficial from the free-throw line. 

Updated at: Fri June 22nd 12:39 AM
50. Alize Johnson
Pacers, Small Forward, Missouri State
6'9"/203

Johnson is a good ball-handler and grabbed over 11 rebounds per game, but he lacks the ability to score consistently. His defense is on point and is good at boxing out and positioning himself, but he will be benched if he doesn't develop any kind of shot or post-play.

Updated at: Fri June 22nd 12:42 AM
51. Tony Carr
Pelicans, Point Guard, Penn State
6'5"/199

Carr is an excellent scorer from all over the court. When given the ball. he finds a way to create. He shot over 40 percent from beyond the arc. As good of a scorer as he is though, his decision-making is awful. He needs to look more where he's passing the ball and he can't over-compensate when driving. He'll be a volume scorer, but a liability with the ball. 

Updated at: Fri June 22nd 12:44 AM
52. Vince Edwards
Jazz, Small Forward, Purdue
6'8"/225

Edwards is a good scorer and long-range shooter, but lacks the essentials needed to be an effective big man. He gets beat in the post, doesn't box out or even try to fight for rebounds. He needs to be more aggressive and fight for loose balls. You need your big man to play like a big man, not a Guard. His defense is one of the worst of any big man in this draft. 

Updated at: Fri June 22nd 12:46 AM
53. Devon Hall
Thunder, Shooting Guard, Virginia
6'5"/206

Hall is a good two-way player and the Thunder lack two-way players. He could see minutes with the current roster composition. He's a good three-point shooter shooting well over 40 percent and he can play bigger than his size. He's a very aggressive defender at the elbow. 

Updated at: Fri June 22nd 12:50 AM
54. Shake Milton
76ers, Shooting Guard, Southern Methodist
6'6"/205

Milton is an excellent outside shooter and will provide a good amount of scoring if he gets minutes in Philly. He also has good ball-handling ability and will be able to rotate at both guard spots. 

Updated at: Fri June 22nd 12:52 AM
55. Arnoldas Kulboka
Hornets, Small Forward, Lithuania
6'9"/203

He's a good mid-range shooter and ball-handler but lacks size and he'll get pushed around in the paint and at the elbow in the high-post if he doesn't develop more. He's a long-term project, but the Basketball I.Q. is there, but he'll need to be able to use his size to drive effectively. 

Updated at: Fri June 22nd 12:56 AM
56. Ray Spalding
Mavericks, Power Forward, Louisville
6'10"/215

Spalding is known more for his offense than defense, but he'll be able to score from mid and long-range. He'll need to improve his post-play and work on spacing in the paint so he can be in position to grab boards and blocks consistently. He still needs to develop more. 

Updated at: Fri June 22nd 1:01 AM
57. Kevin Hervey
Thunder, Small Forward, UT Arlington
6'9/230

Hervey is a solid shooter, but his defense is nothing to write home about. He's a slower moving big man and has a history of Knee injuries and will need to show durability and aggresivness on the defensive end if he's going to get minutes. He doesn't use his size right and is more often outside the paint at the arc on both sides of the ball. 

Updated at: Fri June 22nd 1:00 AM
58. Thomas Welsh
Nuggets, Center, UCLA
7'0"/255

Welsh will need a bit to move up the depth chart when it comes to big men in Denver. He did average over 10 boards per game last season and can draw out bigger defenders with his three-point jumper, but he will have to likely wait to earn minutes. 

Updated at: Fri June 22nd 1:04 AM
59. George King
Suns, Small Forward, Colorado
6'6"/225

King makes a big impact on the glass on the defensive end. He fights hard for boards against bigger defenders. He's a good shooter and takes a lot of high-percentage shots. Expect him to produce mainly from mid-range on offense. 

Updated at: Fri June 22nd 1:07 AM
60. Kostas Antetokounmpo
Mavericks, Small Forward, Dayton
6'10"/195

Yes, he is The Greek Freak's Brother, but he wasn't that impressive on the offensive end at Dayton. He blocked over a shot per game last season, but he's a huge, long-term project and he'll need to put more muscle on in order for him not to get pushed around inside.
