2. Josh Minott, SF, Memphis
If Masai Ujiri went into a lab and created an NBA prospect, the result would likely resemble Minott. A long, athletic, two-way forward, Minott has demonstrated he has what it takes to play at the NBA level based on his genetic gifts alone.
With a pro-ready frame, long wingspan, and elite bounce, Minott is primed to throw down a few highlight-reel dunks in the near future. Minott averaged 2.0 steals and 1.6 blocks per 36 minutes, making him a mouth-watering defensive piece.
Josh Minott could fit the Toronto Raptors.
While Minott can get into the paint at will and play above the rim, he has shown struggles to finish with finesse and technique, mainly relying on his ability to blow by defenders for open scoring chances. It is non-negotiable that Minott must work on his touch at the rim and jumper to further his value in the league.
Altogether, Minott has insane upside. With the Raptors slated to select at pick No. 33, Minott would be a fantastic get for Toronto and an instant culture fit. A project worth investing in towards the future, Minott will need to show he can translate his gifts.
