After adding a big in the first round, the Hornets will add a backup guard with four years of starting experience in Wright. He is a bit undersized and not the greatest shooter, but his production and speed should make him a nice addition for the G League before he starts eating up NBA minutes.
Aldama has just 27 college games under his belt in an inferior conference, but production like 21.2 points and 10.1 rebounds per game is nothing to be sneezed at. The Hornets could work on improving his defense while reaping the immediate reward that he could bring as a spacing big.
Even with his extremely skinny frame and inconsistent shooting, Lawson is a quality athlete for the shooting guard position, and his ability to sky towards the rim makes him a very intriguing developmental prospect for Oklahoma City. The Thunder will end their VERY deep draft with a quality bench player like Lawson.
Bleijenbergh is a very unique prospect, as he is nearly seven feet tall, yet plays more like an off-ball guard due to his skinny frame and shooting ability. Questions over his best positional fit could cause him to slip just a bit, but his slide could end with New York near the end of the draft.
The Nets could use this spot to gamble on a scorer like Washington, who was one of the leaders of a very impressive Ohio State team. He’s not an amazing shot creator, but even if his shooting ability remains his only above-average pro trait, he’s worth gambling on and sticking down in the G League.
With the final pick in the draft, the Pacers end up grabbing Miller, a four-year contributor with the Spartans who could make waves in the pros with his scoring and perimeter defense. With three consecutive conference Defensive Player of the Year awards, Miller should be able to cause havoc as a high-energy reserve.
