Which players projected to go in the second round of the 2020 NBA Draft have the most potential? Here’s a mock view of how the last 30 picks may go.
The NBA Draft will soon be underway and we cannot wait to watch the best players blossom in their new destination. These players have waited their whole lives for this epic moment and what a sight it will be to see.
As much as we anticipate the players drafted in the first round, the second round could potentially have a player that will make a difference for a franchise. We watched guys in Draymond Green be selected in the second round and look how important he is to Golden State. There is a player in the second round poll that is waiting for his opportunity to prove that he is an elite player when called for.
Let’s go through each team’s pick and see what player they need most.
Center, Dallas Mavericks
It would be great for Dallas to grab a big man who could fit well in the frontcourt next to Porzingis. Daniel Oturu could be the perfect man in the middle.
Whether starting or coming off the bench, Oturu can be a difference-maker on both ends. He is a strong, broad center who can be a force in the middle for Dallas. The Mavs would be in good hands if they pair Oturu with this young Dallas roster.
Forward, Charlotte Hornets
Tyler Bey is an all-around player who could become a difference-maker for the Charlotte Hornets. Bey is a gifted player who can play anywhere on the floor and is a consistent perimeter scorer when given the opportunity.
Watching Bey’s development has been outstanding to watch through his three seasons in Colorado. His talent alongside the emergence of Devonte Graham, Malik Monk, and others gives the Hornets hindsight of a bright future ahead. Bey could be the missing piece that could get Charlotte over the hump as a rebuilding organization.
Guard, Minnesota Timberwolves
Isaiah Joe can become a terrific backup point guard for the Timberwolves. In his two seasons at Arkansas, Joe was a highly energized player who fought on both ends of the floor.
Joe could possibly fit well being behind or right next to D’Angelo Russell. Both players require so much attention on offense that it potentially leaves one another free to score. With Joe’s size and his frame, he could become the key player off the bench that Minnesota would need.
