NBA Mock Draft


William Blass, Sports

Cade Cunningham- Detroit Pistons

Cade Cunningham currently plays for Oklahoma State and is one of the most dominant players in college basketball. Although Oklahoma State is not doing as well as many would hope, Cade is definitely pulling his weight. Cade has the potential to be a big factor in pulling the Pistons out of their decade long slump. Offensively The Pistons are statistically the worst in the league and an offensive oriented player like Cunningham would be a big help.

Jalen Suggs- Washington Wizards

The Washington Wizards previously traded John Wall for Russel Westbrook which does not appear to be a long term solution. Westbrook has been inconsistent all season and the Wizards are one of the worst teams in the league. Jalen Suggs, could be their future franchise player due to his freakish athletics and high basketball IQ. Suggs is also one of the best defensive players in college basketball, and could be a nice duo with Bradley Beal.

Evan Mobley- Minnesota Timberwolves

With Karl Anthony Towns struggling with injuries, it could be time for a new center in Minnesota. Last year the Timberwolves drafted Anthony Edwards who is having a great season, but the Timberwolves are still lacking defensively and on the boards. If the Timberwolves drafted Mobley with his 7 foot 6 wingspan they could again a lot. Currently Mobley is averaging 9 rebounds and 3 blocks per game at USC. I think he is going to be the best player from this draft class and will help Minnesota significantly.

Jalen Johnson- Chicago Bulls

Jalen Johnson was arguably the best highschool player going into 2020. He is playing at duke and is being coached under Coach K. Johnson and Duke have both been having bad years, but Johnson has suffered from injuries which are clearly affecting his play. The Chicago Bulls are another team that is struggling on offense and Jalen Johnson is a high risk high reward pick that could pay off for the Bulls.

Scottie Barnes- Oklahoma City Thunder

Barnes is one of the best all around players in the draft. He is capable of playing the guard and forward positions while also being able to guard these positions. The Thunder are lacking depth and drafting Barnes could help their bench play. As of now the Thunder are also lacking offensive threats which Barnes could help with.
