The Draft

The 76ers as of now have 5 draft picks in the 2020 NBA draft. One in the 1st round (21st pick) which was obtained when Elton Brand name sent Markelle Fultz over to the Orlando Magic and four in the 2nd round (34,36,49 and 58) Currently if I had to think this will alter before the draft formally happens. So allow’s get involved in some possible targets for each and every draft pick. I am going to offer 3 feasible choices for our first-round pick as well as one possible choice for each second-round pick.

Round 1- 21st choice (using OKC)

Aaron Nesmith 6-6 SG/SF Vanderbilt

Current Projection via NBAdraft.net (13th overall)

There aren’t numerous players that enhanced their draft stock in a year than Aaron Nesmith. Throughout his freshman, he averaged 11ppg while firing 39.2% from the field. His sophomore campaign he raised his standard to 23ppg while firing 51.2% from the area and also an impressive 51% from 3. Integrate that with averaging 1.4 swipes and virtually a block for a game and there’s a great deal of reasons NBA teams enjoy Nesmith as a prospective lottery game choice. So how could he wind up at the Sixers with the 21st choice? It’s because he only played in 14 games last season after enduring a tension fracture in his foot. These types of injuries are no joke as if they don’t heal 100% it is very easy to reinjure Simply ask Joel Embiid. Because of that, I wouldn’t be stunned in any way if Nesmith was available at the 76ers selection.

Saddiq Bey 6-8 SF Villanova

Current Projection by means of NBAdraft.net (19th overall)

Bey is your paradigmatic NBA player nowadays. He’s a catch shoot 3pt sniper who can guard several settings. With his structure of 6’8 215lbs, I see no reason he can not guard 2-4 in the NBA. Last season Villanova fired 48.4% from the area and an exceptional 47.7% from 3 while trying practically 6 per game. He’s obtained outstanding shooting kind it advises me of a great deal of Friend Hield. Bey can improve as a rebounder as well as a defender however his dimension and also intangibles associate directly to today’s NBA video game and he would fit perfectly along Ben Simmons would lead the organization in 3pt possibilities produced.

Tyrese Maxey 6’3 SG Kentucky

Existing Estimate using NBAdraft.net (17th general)

Maxey is just one of my favored potential customers in this class. His video game reminds me so much of CJ McCollum. His ability to run off-ball is unrivaled as well as much-needed ability in today’s NBA. While he had not been the sniper that John Calipari thought he was obtaining as he shot 43.2% from the area and a disappointing 25.9% from 3 he played in the exact same role Tyler Herro played when he remained in Lexington. He is undersized as a capturing guard in today’s NBA at 6’3 yet the Sixers have a lot size already that his lack of protective ability can be hidden if his shooting catches up. He can take care of the ball as he balanced 3 aids per video game and he is a solid complimentary throw shooter at 86.4%. His ability to relocate off the round makes him unique in my mind and if he is offered at the Sixers to select he needs to be the person.

Round 2- 34th choice (via ATL)

Zeke NNaji 6 ’11 PF Arizona

Current Estimate using NBAdraft.net (32nd overall)

Energy, power, as well as a lot more power. That is what NNaji gives the table. The Fresher was a mild shock as he eclipsed by Nico Mannion and Josh Green in Sean Miller’s freshman class. I do not think numerous experts forecasted he would balance 15.7 ppg in his only year at Arizona. Nnaji is additionally a steadfast rebounder at 8.8 a video game. He has exceptional bounce for his size, which need to help boost as a shot blocker. I see no reason that he can not discover his way on this Sixers roster.

Round 2- 36th pick (Via NYK)

Cassius Stanley 6-5 SG Duke

Present Forecast by means of NBAdraft.net (41st overall)

Speak about a youngster with a lot potential. I have been complying with Cassius Stanley because he was a freshman at Westlake High school in California after he did this in a secondary school game.

Stanley could be the most significant boom or bust prospect in this draft. His numbers were good at his only year with Train K as averaged 12.6 ppg while firing 47.4% from the area and a strong 36% from 3. He is one of the most sports player in this class as he holds a Fight it out document with a 46.5 in vertical. Defeating Zion Williamson by 1.5 in. With good coaching and correct advancement, Stanley could be the greatest steal in the draft.

Round 2- 49th choice

Cassius Winston 6’1 PG Michigan St

Current Projection via NBAdraft.net (49th total)

Stable hand as well as experience. That is what Cassius Winston brings to the table. 4 years at Michigan St as well as starting 3 of them under Tom Izzo as well as Winston enters into the draft as your quintessential point guard. While his junior year statistics are better than his elderly year ones Winston would be a wonderful backup point player in the NBA as he frequently makes the ideal decision and also constantly in command of the infraction.

Round 2- 49th choice 58th pick (Via ORL)

Markus Howard 5-11 PG Marquette

Present Estimate via NBAdraft.net (56th overall)

If Markus Howard was 6’3 he would certainly he quickly be a first round pick. Unfortunately he is undersized at 5 ’11 however if Carsen Edwards can get chosen very early 2nd round I doubt Howard will certainly drop this much. Howard has never ever fired under 40% from 3 in university profession and increased his ppg every period. If you can obtain containers and knockdown 3’s effectively there is constantly a place for you in the NBA particularly the 76ers.
