With the 2019 draft in the near future, there’s no time better to look forward another year and at the prospects of the 2020 draft.
1] James Wiseman (Memphis) – Little arguing Wiseman as the most intriguing incoming freshman, and as the top prospect looking ahead to next summer. Wiseman loves to attack the rim with tenacity.
2 ] Anthony Edwards (Georgia) – High motor with a scoring prowess that seems second to none, Edwards definitely has the tools to be a stud at the next level.
3] Cole Anthony (North Carolina) – Has a feel for the game like few others at his age, always seems to make the right play and get his teammates open looks. Can also score in bunches.
4] RJ Hampton (Duke? Kansas?) – Already a NBA-level athlete, Hampton has a knack for putting the ball in the basket, whether he’s 3-feet or 30-feet away.
5] Isaiah Stewart (Washington) – Stewart loves to get dirty in the post, and has the frame to do so, with a jumper from the forgotten area (mid range).
6] Precious Achiuwa (Memphis) – Precious and Wiseman are going to be fun to watch in college, and Precious’ strength, length and athleticism is going to translate well.
7] Aye Dosunmu (France) – Drawn comparisons to Jrue Holiday, Dosunmu has a great feel for the game, helping him create a shot out of thin air.
8] Theo Maledon (France) – Fits the mold of tall point guards in the NBA, gets to the rim well and has a tendency to make the right play.
9] Jaden McDaniels (Washington) – Boasts a silky smooth game, to go with his length and size, McDaniels has the potential to sky to the top of the boards.
10] Khalil Witney (Kentucky) – An aggressive game, to go with the speed and bounce Whitney possesses, make him an intriguing prospect to keep an eye on. Seems to have the workhorse mentality.
11] Nico Mannion (Arizona) – Without a glaring hole in his game, Mannion has the skill set to score in bunches, while getting teammates involved. A great leader on and off the court.
12] Trendon Watford (LSU) – All-around game is polished for Watford, who can bang in the post or hit from mid range.
13] Isaiah Mobley (USC) – In the post, from the arc, ball on the floor…Mobley can do it all. Wait for little bro the following year as well, eek.
14] Jalen Smith (Maryland) – Added some strength, which had minimal, if any, impact on his athleticism, Smith has the versatility which is a perfect fit for the modern league.
15] Tyrese Maxey (Kentucky) – A microwave, Maxey has the ability to score in bunches, and do it quickly.
16] Cassius Stanley (Duke) – Stanley knows how to put on a show for the crowd, without sacrificing the scoreboard. An athlete, with a jumper and tenacious defense, Coach K got a good one.
17] Vernon Carey Jr. (Duke) – Back to back Blue Devils, Carey is a bruiser that isn’t lacking in quickness, with a nice, all-around skill set.
18] Lamine Diane (Cal State Northridge) – Arguably the best freshman last year, Diane was a big fish in a small pond. With a summer under his belt, expect big things from the big man in the 818.
19] Scottie Lewis (Florida) – Glides through the air, Lewis has the skill set to match his athletic abilities.
20] Josh Green (Arizona) – From the Land Down Under to the Old Pueblo, Green is an athletic guard that does everything you want him to do.
21] Johnny Juzang (Kentucky) – An absolute sniper, Juzang has the capability to create for himself, or move without the rock, positioning himself for a good shot.
22] Samuell Williamson (Louisville) – Arguably the best athlete in the class, Williamson has the tools to be a top level player. Question remains, will he get it done?
23] LaMelo Ball (Unknown) – Known for his ability to put the ball in the hoop, Ball improved his dribble game to be an all around threat. Where he plays next season is a question many are waiting on.
24] Tre Jones (Duke) – With a third eye to help find the right pass to his squad, Jones leaves it all on the floor on the other end of the floor.
25] Steve Enoch (Louisville) – Loves to bang in the post, and has a NBA-ready body, Enoch has continued to expand his offensive game.
Vernon Carey Jr., Mac McClung, Jeremiah Robinson-Earl, Tyler Bey, EJ Montgomery, Devon Dotson
