Article Summary:

Round 1 – Pick 4 Jalen Green SG USA 6’5″ / 172 lbs Projected Team Toronto PROSPECT RNK 4th POSITION RNK 1st PPG 17.9 RPG 4.1 APG 2.8 3P% 36.5% The Raptors were big winners on lottery night when they bounced into the top four and earned the right to select whichever top-tier prospect drops to them. Round 1 – Pick 19 Jalen Johnson SF Duke Fr 6’9″ / 220 lbs Projected Team New York PROSPECT RNK 20th POSITION RNK 6th PPG 11.2 RPG 6.1 APG 2.2 3P% 44.4% It’s unclear if the Knicks will want to keep both of their first-round picks given the depth currently on the roster if they do, adding a prospect like Jalen Johnson could be a great long-term play. Round 1 – Pick 20 Cameron Thomas SG LSU Fr 6’4″ / 210 lbs Projected Team Atlanta PROSPECT RNK 14th POSITION RNK 4th PPG 23 RPG 3.4 APG 1.4 3P% 32.5% Cameron Thomas is a big-time scorer who led the SEC in points per game in his one season at LSU. The efficiency numbers weren’t great, but that’s largely because he was responsible for creating an unusually high percentage of the Tigers’ offense, which obviously wouldn’t be the case in Atlanta because of the presence of Trae Young. Round 1 – Pick 26 Jaden Springer PG Tennessee Fr 6’4″ / 204 lbs Projected Team Denver PROSPECT RNK 11th POSITION RNK 5th PPG 12.5 RPG 3.5 APG 2.9 3P% 43.5% Jaden Springer made above 43% of his 3-point attempts in his one season of college, which is an encouraging stat even if it was on limited attempts.
