Article Summary:

Round 1 – Pick 7 Alperen Sengun C Turkey 6’10” / 240 lbs Projected Team Toronto PROSPECT RNK 24th POSITION RNK 2nd Sengun is racing up draft boards thanks to improvement he’s shown with Besiktas, and the Raptors have a real need at the center position. Round 1 – Pick 13 Franz Wagner SF Michigan Soph 6’9″ / 220 lbs Projected Team Indiana PROSPECT RNK 16th POSITION RNK 4th PPG 12.5 RPG 6.5 APG 3 3P% 34.3% The Pacers ended the season as one of the worst defensive teams in the NBA, and they could look to improve that by drafting Wagner, one of the best defenders in the draft with his length, strength and instincts. From Miami Heat Round 1 – Pick 18 Usman Garuba PF Spain 6’8″ / 229 lbs Projected Team Oklahoma City PROSPECT RNK 27th POSITION RNK 3rd OKC has a million draft picks, so why not swing for the fences? With a 7-2 wingspan and tremendous technique, Garuba has perhaps the most defensive potential of any big in the draft besides Evan Mobley. From Milwaukee Bucks Round 1 – Pick 24 Jalen Johnson SF Duke Fr 6’9″ / 220 lbs Projected Team Houston PROSPECT RNK 20th POSITION RNK 6th PPG 11.2 RPG 6.1 APG 2.2 3P% 44.4% Johnson is a bit of a mystery because he only played 13 games at Duke, but he’s a tantalizing prospect because of his length, athleticism and upside.
