2020 NBA Draft Tracker



1. Anthony Edwards
Timberwolves, Shooting Guard, Georgia
6'5" / 225 lbs, 19 yrs

After plenty of trade speculation, the Timberwolves stand pat and make Anthony Edwards the first overall pick of the 2020 NBA Draft! As a wing scorer who can play both the shooting guard and small forward positions, Edwards should be a great fit alongside Karl-Anthony Towns and DeAngelo Russell. Last year as a freshman, Edwards was the go-to scorer at Georgia as he showcased his scoring skills driving to the rim and creating his own shots with defenses double-teaming him often. He can assist Russell in the Minnesota backcourt by splitting ball-handling duties and being another scoring option to help Towns as well.

2. James Wiseman
Warriors, Center, Memphis
7'1" / 237 lbs, 20 yrs

The rich get richer! The Warriors choose not to trade this pick either and take the best big man in this draft class. Although James Wiseman played just three collegiate games for Memphis last year, it was clear how physically dominant he can be at the NBA level with shot-blocking skills at 7-foot-1 and a versatile offensive game that includes perimeter shooting upside. Golden State is a dream landing spot for Wiseman as he’ll be the rim-running, pick-and-roll center to dominate the post in an offense that has plenty of outside shooting already. The news of Klay Thompson’s injury today likely encouraged the Warriors to stick with this pick and get someone who can be a Day 1 starter with superstar upside.

Updated at: Wed November 18th 8:23 PM
3. LaMelo Ball
Hornets, Point Guard, Illawarra Hawks (Australia)
6'7" / 190 lbs, 19 yrs

The Hornets grab the third option in the consensus top three and add LaMelo Ball to their backfourt. Many expect Ball to be a better NBA player than his older brother, Lonzo, and he definitely has the physical tools to develop into that. As a 6-foot-7 point guard who’s a clever passer and smooth dribbler, LaMelo can be a playmaker who also has three-point shooting potential with deep range - if he can improve his efficiency. The only worry surrounding Ball is his unique career path and playing last year in a subpar Australian pro league that allowed him to be the star. There could be a learning curve in year 1, but the star potential is there for him. Now that LaMelo is on the Hornets - we can finally see that 1-on-1 game between his dad and Michael Jordan! 

Updated at: Wed November 18th 9:10 PM
4. Patrick Williams
Bulls, Forward, Florida State
6'8" / 225 lbs, 19 yrs

Patrick Williams has been rising fast up the draft board and prospect rankings over the last few weeks and Chicago makes him the 4th overall pick! At Florida State, Williams developed his gritty defensive skills and his combination of size and athleticism will allow him to defend multiple positions at the NBA level. Although his offensive game still needs some work, he flashed moments of playmaking upside in college last year - and Chicago is likely hoping he turns into an elite two-way player. The Bulls could use as much playmaking as possible and Williams can play the wing spot as a solid defender with a legit NBA body. 

Updated at: Wed November 18th 8:44 PM
5. Isaac Okoro
Cavaliers, Small Forward, Auburn
6'6" / 225 lbs, 20 yrs

There are a lot of promising 3-and-D wing prospects in this draft - and Isaac Okoro is definitely one of the best as the Cavs lock him down. At Auburn, Okoro showcased a two-way skillset that can easily translate over to the modern NBA. He was an elite defender in college who can guard multiple positions with an athletic and strong frame. Plus, he’s not shy to drive to the basket and score in traffic and will be a nice wong scorer with Cleveland. The only thing he needs to work on to complete the 3-and-D description is his perimeter shooting, but that’s something he can definitely work on in his rookie season at the pro level. The Cavs will be a good spot to let him develop on offense while improving on defense even more.

Updated at: Wed November 18th 8:44 PM
6. Onyeka Okongwu
Hawks, Center, USC
6'9" / 245 lbs, 20 yrs

Atlanta adds another piece in their rebuild with Trae Young as the star-in-the-making and plenty of recent draft picks (De’Andre Hunter, Cam Reddish, Kevin Huerter) forming an already young core waiting to explode. In Onyeka Okongwu, the Hawks get a high-upside big man who was a polished post-scorer at USC last season and displayed surprisingly smooth ball-handling and rim-driving skills despite his size. Plus, he’s a fantastic shot-blocker with athleticism to make up for his “smaller” 6-foot-9 size at the center position. The Hawks will add Okongwu to be a great pick-and-roll option with Young on offense.

Updated at: Wed November 18th 8:53 PM
7. Killian Hayes
Pistons, Guard, Ulm (Germany)
6'5" / 215 lbs, 19 yrs

The Pistons have a weird roster of oft-injured former stars (Derrick Rose, Blake Griffin) and young potential (Luke Kennard, Sekou Doumbaya) - and now they add one of the most interesting prospects in this draft class. Killian Hayes is a home run pick with some uncertainty attached to him as well. The American-born French point guard is already a polished ball handler and flashy passer as he’s been playing pro ball over in Europe since 2017. Still fairly young (compared to other prospects in this class), Hayes has a ton of potential to develop into a good two-way point guard with his 6-foot-5 frame, years of legit competitive experience and flashes of offensive brilliance. Detroit has been desperate for a game-changing playmaker to make them yearly East contenders, and Hayes could be just that.

Updated at: Wed November 18th 9:01 PM
8. Obi Toppin
Knicks, Power Forward/Center, Dayton
6'9" / 220 lbs, 23 yrs

The Knicks came into this draft needing tons of help on both ends of the court - and Obi Toppin immediately adds some offensive playmaking to a team that was basically R.J. Barrett on his own last season. The 22-year-old is one of the oldest prospects in this class and he’ll be mature enough and physically ready to contribute right away on offense for New York. The reigning collegiate National Player of the Year dominated nearly every opponent last season at Dayton and he projects to be an offensive-minded power forward in the NBA - with a slightly smaller build to be successful as a center.. He does need to work on his defense more, but honestly so does every prospect.

Updated at: Wed November 18th 9:04 PM
9. Deni Avdija
Wizards, Small Forward, Maccabi Tel Aviv (Israel)
6'9" / 215 lbs, 20 yrs

Did the Wizards just make Deni Avdija the steal of the draft? The Israeli could’ve easily been a top 5 pick (or at least top 8) and Washington grabs one of the most interesting talents of the whole class - especially from the foreign-born ranks. Avdija is a versatile forward who has playmaking abilities of a guard, which could be very valuable at his 6-foot-9 size. He can play both the small and power forward positions and his years of pro ball experience should help him acclimate into the NBA easier than some other first-rounders. Plus, there’s something to be said about Avidja being the defending Israeli League MVP and a three-time champ with Maccabi Tel Aviv. Shades of Luka Doncic, anyone?

Updated at: Wed November 18th 9:09 PM
10. Jalen Smith
Suns, Center, Maryland
6'10" / 225 lbs, 21 yrs

Woah! The most surprising pick of the draft as no one expected Jalen Smith to go this early. The Suns are clearly high on the Maryland product, though, and they’ll add Smith to a roster that all of a sudden looks very interesting in the West. He’s a versatile big man who can both score in the post and stretch the floor - fitting very nicely in a lineup of Devin Booker, Chris Paul and DeAndre Ayton. Smith really improved his offensive game in his sophomore Maryland season, fine-tuning his post moves and developing a legit three-point shot (he made 37% from deep in 2019-20). He was a double-double machine for the Terps and was a great rim-protector too - averaging 2.4 blocks per game. His three-point shooting makes him an ideal modern-day NBA big and he presents a different skillset to pair with Ayton in the frontcourt.

Updated at: Wed November 18th 9:18 PM
11. Devin Vassell
Spurs, Guard / Forward, Florida State
6'7" / 194 lbs, 20 yrs

It seems like the Spurs draft 3-and-D wing players every year, and here they are again with one of the best in this class. Devin Vassell will contribute in the San Antonio rotation right away because he brings a valuable combination of great perimeter defense and lights-out three-point shooting. In his two collegiate seasons, Vassell shot over 40% from deep and he’s coming from a very defensive-minded Florida State program that allowed him to develop into a true 3-and-D wing. He’s the type of player who can play from Day 1 in the league with his defensive skills and three-point shot - and an NBA-ready body that oozes upside if he gets better as a ball-handler and passer.

Updated at: Wed November 18th 10:03 PM
12. Tyrese Haliburton
Kings, Point Guard, Iowa State
6'5" / 175 lbs, 21 yrs

Tyrese Haliburton was getting pre-draft buzz to be gone by #8 overall, so it’s safe to say the Kings got a steal at #12. At Iowa State, Haliburton was an elite floor general point guard at Iowa and his ball-handling and passing skills are as good as anyone’s in this draft class. Plus, he can move over to the 2-guard role to be a spot-up shooter (42% three-point shooter) and guard taller wings with his 6-foot-5 size and lengthy wingspan. Although he doesn’t receive the same national praise as other PG’s in this class, Haliburton could easily end up being the best player in this draft because of his two-way ability and untapped potential. He’ll be a nice complement to De’Aaron Fox in the Sacramento backcourt with two talented ball-handlers who can play off each other.

Updated at: Wed November 18th 9:29 PM
13. Kira Lewis Jr.
Pelicans, Point Guard, Alabama
6'3" / 165 lbs, 20 yrs

The Pelicans continue their young rebuild and add a true point guard to the rotation to fit alongside Zion Williamson, Brandon Ingram and Lonzo Ball. Lewis is a speedy, score-first PG who can drive to the rim and create shots for himself with ease. His offensive talent will be a great fit on a team with tons of scoring versatility already. Plus, he’s an aggressive defender on the perimeter who plays bigger than his 6-foot-3 size - as evidenced by him challenging opposing SEC guards every game last year. A New Orleans backcourt of Lewis and Ball will be interesting but both have different skillsets and this could definitely work in tandem with Williamson/Ingram as well.

Updated at: Wed November 18th 9:33 PM
14. Aaron Nesmith
Celtics, Small Forward, Vanderbilt
6'6" / 213 lbs, 21 yrs

The Celtics entered this draft with multiple 1st Round picks and they use their first one to take one of the best 3-and-D wing prospects. Despite playing on a below-average college team, Nesmith is extremely talented and is arguably the best three-point shooter in this draft. He shot 52% from the perimeter last season for Vanderbilt - and that was on a team where he was the focal point of opposing defenses. He definitely won’t be the top scoring option on a playoff-caliber Celtics roster, but Nesmith will be a great three-point option in this offense and his defending skills will allow Jayson Tatum to focus more on his offense.

Updated at: Wed November 18th 9:45 PM
15. Cole Anthony
Magic, Guard, North Carolina
6'3" / 190 lbs, 20 yrs

A year ago, Cole Anthony was a consensus top-5 pick in mock drafts and an injury-riddled freshman season at UNC has him now falling to just outside the lottery. He’s one of the best score-first point guards in this draft who was basically the Tar Heels’ entire offense when healthy last year. He’s a dynamic ball-handler, crafty finisher at the rim and a talented jump shooter who can score off the dribble as well. This could be a steal for the Magic, who get one of the best scorers in the draft - and could be an interesting pairing with Markelle Fultz in the backcourt.

Updated at: Wed November 18th 9:50 PM
16. Isaiah Stewart
Pistons, Center, Washington
6'9" / 250 lbs, 19 yrs

The Pistons took a guard with their earlier 1st Round selection (Killian Hayes) and now get a big man with their second pick. Isaiah Stewart was one of the lone bright spots on an underperforming Washington team last year but he was not overlooked by NBA scouts. The freshman was a very effective and creative post scorer who showed flashes of perimeter shooting when given the chance. He’s a big body in the paint and was a dominant rebounder and shot-blocker in college. He’ll benefit from playing alongside Blake Griffin in Detroit where his offensive game can develop in an offense where he won’t be relied upon heavily to score.

Updated at: Wed November 18th 9:53 PM
17. Aleksej Pokusevski
Thunder, Power Forward, Olympiacos B (Greece)
7'0" / 201 lbs, 19 yrs

Oklahoma City trades Ricky Rubio and their two later first-round picks for this #17 overall pick and they get a guy they have reportedly been wanting really badly. The Serbian 7-footer obviously has the size to play center, but he’s very thin for his height and will need to build muscle to fill out the frame. Given his height and his tendency to play more like a wing scorer - he has as high of a ceiling as anyone in the draft. Poku, as he’s affectionately known, can pass and ball handle like a guard but can also shoot and score like a playmaking winger. The sky's the limit for a guy who could emerge as the best player in this draft years down the line once his true potential emerges with his size and offensive skills combo.

Updated at: Wed November 18th 10:01 PM
18. Josh Green
Mavericks, Guard / Forward, Arizona
6'6" / 210 lbs, 20 yrs

Who’s up for another top-tier 3-and-D wing prospect? They are valuable commodities in this modern NBA and Dallas grabs one of this year’s best in Josh Green. The Arizona product is a wing scorer who can provide solid outside shooting and perimeter defense to the Mavs right from Day 1. In his lone college season, he showed promise as a spot-up shooter and on-ball defender and has an NBA-ready body that can be in a rotation right away. Luka Doncic and the Mavs could use a 3-and-D wing like Green and there’s potential for someone who’s offensive game can get better with more development.

Updated at: Wed November 18th 10:07 PM
19. Saddiq Bey
Pistons, Small Forward, Villanova
6'8" / 216 lbs, 22 yrs

The Pistons acquire yet another 1st Round pick in this trade with Brooklyn - and they make Saddiq Bey the selection. So Detroit has added a guard (Killian Hayes), big man (Isaiah Stewart) and now a wing player in Bey for their rebuild. The Villanova product is another promising 3-and-D prospect in this draft class and he actually might be the best one with versatility on both ends of the court to play/guard multiple positions. He shot 45% from three-point range last year as the best player on his ‘Nova team that easily could’ve won the title (if not for COVID). Bey is one of the few high-floor, high-ceiling players in this draft and he should see plenty of playing time as a small forward for the Pistons on this young core.

Updated at: Wed November 18th 10:14 PM
20. Precious Achiuwa
Heat, Power Forward, Memphis
6'9" / 225 lbs, 21 yrs

Wow, imagine a frontcourt of Bam Adebayo and Precious Achiuwa - a pair of energetic, versatile big men who offer different offensive and defensive skill sets to compliment each other. As for Achiuwa, his draft value took a massive leap this past season at Memphis due to fellow big man James Wiseman’s extended absence and eventual departure. It allowed Achiuwa to showcase his dominant post scoring and versatile offensive game - not to mention aggressive defending at the rim from the center position. The Heat can play both Achiuwa and Adebayo on the court at the same time as next as both can play the power forward and center positions - with Achiuwa profiling more as a power forward.

Updated at: Wed November 18th 10:19 PM
21. Tyrese Maxey
76ers, Guard, Kentucky
6'3" / 198 lbs, 20 yrs

A few hours after the Sixers added Danny Green and Terrance Ferguson from OKC - and parted ways with Al Horford - they now add a young two-way guard in Tyrese Maxey. He’s yet another one-and-done freshman from Kentucky who can play both the point and shooting guard positions. In college, Maxey was one of the best rim finishers in a tough SEC conference last year. He could improve as a perimeter shooter, but he already has the playmaking talent to make opposing defenses stay honest if he’s on the court with Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid in Philly. Plus, his guarding abilities showed promise as an off-ball or on-ball defender against both guard spots.

Updated at: Wed November 18th 10:31 PM
22. Zeke Nnaji
Nuggets, Center, Arizona
6'11" / 240 lbs, 20 yrs

Another big man comes off the board and Denver gets an interesting backup center for Nikola Jokic with Mason Plumlee and Paul Millsap likely leaving in free agency. As a one-and-done freshman at Arizona, Zeke Nnaji showcased good shooting potential and athleticism from the center position. Apparently he’s improved his three-point shooting this summer - and that would add to his active rebounding and rim-protecting skills in the frontcourt.

Updated at: Wed November 18th 10:35 PM
23. Leandro Bolmaro
Timberwolves, Guard / Forward, Barcelona (Spain)
6'7" / 180 lbs, 20 yrs

The T-Wolves get this pick from the Knicks and take one of the most interesting prospects of this draft class. Leandro Bolmaro is already committed to playing for Barcelona this season, but he’ll be a great addition to Minnesota’s young core when he eventually comes over to the NBA. The Argentinian is a crafty passer, smooth ball-handler and already a good defender at just 19 years old. He needs work on shooting - but that’s something he can work on this upcoming season overseas playing for Barcelona. He was the best draft-and-stash international prospect in this class.

Updated at: Wed November 18th 10:40 PM
24. R.J. Hampton
Nuggets, Guard, New Zealand Breakers
6'5" / 188 lbs, 20 yrs

It’s a bit surprising to see R.J. Hampton fall this far down the draft board as he was considered to be a lottery pick in most mock drafts. The Nuggets get a steal this late in this trade with New Orleans - and Hampton joins Arizona’s Zeke Nnaji as the team’s two first-round selections. Denver chose a high-ceiling pick last year in Michael Porter Jr. and they get another potential home run with Hampton here. He can play both the point and shooting guard positions and will provide good backcourt depth alongside Jamal Murray. Hampton represents a new trend of American high schoolers choosing to go overseas for a year of pro ball instead of attending college as a freshman. In New Zealand this past season, he showed potential as a playmaking passer and scorer with impressive athleticism at a decent 6-foot-5 size for a guard.

Updated at: Wed November 18th 10:44 PM
25. Immanuel Quickley
Knicks, Guard, Kentucky
6'3" / 188 lbs, 21 yrs

This is one of the surprise risers into the 1st Round as Immanuel Quickley was expected to go much later than this - at least in the 2nd. After a trade with OKC, the Knicks add Quickley to their earlier selection of Obi Toppin to continue the rebuild around R.J. Barrett. At Kentucky, Quickley formed an elite offensive backcourt with fellow first-rounder Tyrese Maxey last season and he profiles as a combo guard at the NBA level with ability to play/defend both guard spots. His three-point shooting is a big plus for Quickley’s game as he shot 42% from deep last year - and that’s something the Knicks can use. He took a big jump in draft value from his freshman to sophomore seasons at UK and should continue to get better on offense.

Updated at: Wed November 18th 10:51 PM
26. Payton Pritchard
Celtics, Guard, Oregon
6'1" / 190 lbs, 23 yrs

The Celtics use their second 1st Round selection to take an NBA-ready point guard who will provide solid depth behind an aging Kemba Walker. Last year at Oregon, Payton Pritchard was one of the best college players in the country who was a score-first PG on a team that could’ve gone far in the NCAA Tournament. At 22 years old, he’s one of the elder statesmen of this draft class and he can definitely enter Boston’s rotation right away as someone who can play on both ends at the next level after doing it at an elite level for the past two college seasons.

Updated at: Wed November 18th 10:58 PM
27. Udoka Azubuike
Jazz, Center, Kansas
7'0" / 270 lbs, 21 yrs

Another surprise of the 1st Round! Udoka Azubuike was a dominant college player at Kansas, but many didn’t expect him to crack the first 30 picks. Yet, here the Jazz are taking a guy who could eventually replace Rudy Gobert as their starting center. Although Azubuike dealt with some injury-riddled seasons, he was a force in the paint on both ends when healthy for the Jayhawks - and he has the experience to slot in Day 1 to the rotation for Utah. His post game and shot-blocking skills are fine-tuned, but he offers little to no perimeter shooting. It’s something he could work on, but the three-point shot was not something Kansas asked him to do much so there isn’t a ton of evidence he can shoot the three.

Updated at: Wed November 18th 11:01 PM
28. Jaden McDaniels
Timberwolves, Forward, Washington
6'9" / 200 lbs, 20 yrs

This pick is reportedly headed to Minnesota after first being traded to OKC through the Lakers. Although he underwhelmed as a one-and-done freshman at Washington last year, there’s tons of upside in Jaden McDaniels developing into a legit talent on both ends. He has unique scoring and defensive versatility from the wing and he’s also a great ball-handler who can create his own shots. His ball-handling and potential three-point shooting can be very valuable from his 6-foot-9 size if he can become more consistent. There’s potential from him to be a steal as one of the best athletes of the draft but with raw talent needing some development.

Updated at: Thu November 19th 12:24 AM
29. Malachi Flynn
Raptors, Guard, San Diego State
6'1" / 185 lbs, 22 yrs

The Raptors have an uncertain future at guard with an aging Kyle Lowry and Fred VanVleet entering free agency - so they grab an NBA-ready guard who can play both the PG and SG spots. Malachi Flynn and San Diego State had a breakout season this past year and would’ve been a top seed in the NCAA Tournament had it not been cancelled. At 6-foot-1, he’s a little undersized but he makes up for it with tough play on both ends of the court. It’s ironic that Flynn could be replacing VanVleet for Toronto because the two were similar in the college ranks - undersized guards who played bigger than their height while also being lights-out shooters when called upon. Flynn can step in right away into Toronto’s rotation.

Updated at: Wed November 18th 11:23 PM
30. Desmond Bane
Grizzlies, Guard / Forward, TCU
6'6" / 215 lbs, 22 yrs

The Grizzlies trade into the 1st Round here and get Desmond Bane to be a solid 3-and-D winger as part of their rebuild. Bane can become a rotation piece immediately after four years experience at TCU, shooting 43% from three-point range in his collegiate career and showing defensive intensity with a strong frame. He can play and guard the shooting guard or small forward positions and is even strong enough to play power forward in small ball situations.
