The NBA season may be on hold, but it isn’t too soon to look ahead to the 2020 NBA Draft, whenever that might be. Here is the 2020 NBA Mock Draft April 28.
Note: Draft order is from NBADraft.net
1. Golden State Warriors- Anthony Edwards, G, Georgia
Edwards has great athleticism, but needs to shoot the ball better from deep. The Warriors are reportedly not interested in LaMelo Ball, so they could take Edwards.
2. Cleveland Cavaliers- Obi Toppin, F, Dayton
The Cavs have used a lot of their picks on guards since LeBron James went to Los Angeles. They should focus on getting a young interior player. Toppin was one of the best players in college basketball last season and can do a little bit of everything in the NBA.
3. Minnesota Timberwolves- LaMelo Ball, PG, USA
Ball impressed in his time overseas and could be the first overall pick if the team deems him a good fit. He can shoot, drive and set up his teammates for buckets well.
4. Atlanta Hawks- James Wiseman, C, Memphis
Wiseman was widely considered the best recruit in the 2019 recruiting class, but left Memphis after having eligibility issues. The Hawks could use another body to develop on the inside.
5. Detroit Pistons- Cole Anthony, PG, North Carolina
North Carolina had a terrible season and part of the reason why was that Anthony was injured. He has good speed and can put a team on his back when asked to. Detroit needs a new leader in this year’s draft at the point guard position.
6. New York Knicks- Deni Avdija, SF, Israel
Avdija is averaging over 12 points per game in Israel and is only 19 years old. With some development he can become a solid NBA player.
7. Chicago Bulls- Isaac Okoro, SF, Auburn
Chicago has several solid young players and can get an athletic small forward in Okoro.
8. Charlotte Hornets- Daniel Oturu, C, Minnesota
WIth good guard play in Devonte Graham and Terry Rozier, the Hornets need to acquire a better inside presence.
9. Washington Wizards- Onyeka Okungwu, PF/C, USC
10. Phoenix Suns-Nico Mannion, PG, Arizona
Phoenix could benefit from better point guard play and Mannion can develop into a solid point guard.
11. San Antonio Spurs- Jaden McDaniels, F, Washington
Gregg Popovich needs to get more size on his roster. McDaniels was a highly-touted recruit, but his season at Washington didn’t go too well.
12. Sacramento Kings- Killian Hayes, PG, France
Hayes is averaging over 12 points per game and is shooting better from 3-point range this season.
13. New Orleans Pelicans- Vernon Carey, C, Duke
Carey is a dominant inside player, but doesn’t offer much versatility. The Pelicans can use a post presence heading into next season.
14. Portland Trail Blazers- Precious Achiuwa, F, Memphis
Achiuwa took over as Memphis’ best player once Wiseman left school. The Blazers could use another talented forward.
15. Orlando Magic- Tyrese Haliburton, PG, Iowa State
Haliburton played two seasons at Iowa State and improved each year. He has good size to be able to play multiple positions.
16. Minnesota Timberwolves- Josh Green, SG, Arizona
At Arizona, Green played well for his freshman season, averaging 12 points per game and shooting 36 percent from 3-point range.
17. Boston Celtics- Theo Maledon, PG, France
Maledon is only 18 and has been playing professionally for years. He averaged 7.4 points per game in just 17.7 minutes played per game.
18. Milwaukee Bucks- R.J. Hampton, G, USA
Instead of going to college, Hampton took his talents to Australia, where he averaged 8.8 points per game in just over 20 minutes per game.
19. Brooklyn Nets- Tyrese Maxey, G, Kentucky
Maxey was a very hot and cold player at Kentucky, but could be a key bench piece for the Nets when they get everyone back healthy.
20. Philadelphia 76ers- Saddiq Bey, F, Villanova
The 76ers should never stop adding 3-point shooting with their current roster setup. Bey hit over 45 percent of his shots from deep this season.
21. Dallas Mavericks- Zeke Nnaji, PF/C, Arizona
Dallas can get a backup rim protector in Nnaji, who flashed good potential in his one season at Arizona.
22. Boston Celtics- Jordan Nwora, SF, Louisville
When Nwora plays at his best, Louisville was a tough team to beat. The problem is that he doesn’t always play to his potential.
23. Denver Nuggets- Reggie Perry, PF, Mississippi State
Denver can get a developmental big man to groom behind Paul Millsap.
24. Miami Heat- Isaiah Stewart, PF/C, Washington
Stewart was a good inside scorer and rebounder for Washington in his one season on campus.
25. New York Knicks- Aaron Nesmith, G, Vanderbilt
In his second year at Vanderbilt, Nesmith was one of the most improved players in the country and averaged 23 points per game. Due to a foot injury, Nesmith only played in 14 games this season.
26. Boston Celtics- Patrick Williams, F, Florida State
Williams only played in just over 22 minutes a game at Florida State, but almost averaged 10 points per game.
27. Oklahoma City Thunder- Immanuel Quickley, G, Kentucky
At Kentucky, Quickley took a huge step forward in his sophomore season. He shot nearly 43 percent from deep and 93 percent from the free-throw line.
28. Toronto Raptors- Jahm’ius Ramsey, G, Texas Tech
Ramsey had a good year at Texas Tech, where he showed the ability to drive and shoot.
29. Los Angeles Lakers- Devin Vassell, G, Florida State
Vassell showed the ability to stretch the floor and defend decently at Florida State.
30. Boston Celtics- Udoka Azubuike, C, Kansas
While he played four years at Kansas, Azubuike can still provide a good inside presence in the NBA if given time to develop.
