"He could be really damn good, but I could also see him being a backup point guard", the scout told Jake Fischer and Jeremy Woo of Sports Illustrated. "His teammates, while I don't think he has. he's compared to Stephen Curry in college, and Curry had, frankly, better teammates, and I don't mean that to denigrate the teammates that Young had, but they were all sort of one-dimensional".

Cavaliers general manager Koby Altman faces a near-impossible task June 21.

Outstanding Achievement: The 2017 McDonald's All-American averaged almost 43 points per game his senior year and dropped a state record 62 points that season.

Young also made sure to bring up softball, where a pair of Sooners were taken in the first six picks, including pitcher Paige Lowary with the top overall selection.

While there is a range of speculation, some placing Sexton as high as No. 6 and some at one of the Los Angeles Clippers' two picks, No. 12 and No. 13, there is no question that Sexton will erase several long streaks and, Johnson hopes, begin a new era in which Alabama is more consistently present on draft day. Fans can also stream the draft on the Watch ESPN app. He scored in double figures in 29 out of 33 games and had at least 20 points on 16 occasions. Bridges already has a strong all-around game with a solid jumpshot, ability to penetrate and move off the ball. His senior year, well, he elevated his game even further.

Bridges, who made a significant jump after averaging 10 points as a Villanova sophomore, also is considered National Basketball Association ready and a very solid two-way player. "His only detracting factor offensively is his size, but he has that natural touch attacking the rim".

The 6-7, 230-pound Bridges averaged 17.1 points, 7.0 rebounds and 2.7 assists in his second season with the Spartans while shooting.457 from the floor, .364 on 3-pointers and.853 at the line.

While on paper there looks to be some potentially great ones available in this draft, it didn't totally make sense for Orlando to go in this direction. He is one of a handful of prospects who appears ready to contribute immediately at the National Basketball Association level. "But it was fun. and it motivated me to get better".

"I'm very concerned about defense", Sam Vecenie, NBA Draft Writer for The Athletic, said on his Game Theory podcast. I've played in their circuits and stuff like that, but now it's a business.
