  • Given that he has played less basketball

    A good developmental team with a strong strength and conditioning program would really help him. 10. Lauri Markkanen, C, Arizona (previous: 10): Markkanen might enter the NBA as the best shooter in the entire league at his position. However, what else does he bring beyond his scoring ability? He's a below-average rebounder, not a great passer and his defensive tools leave something to be desired.

    Still, in a spacing-oriented NBA, he's going to have tremendous value as a knockdown shooter and scorer who can get his shot off in a variety of ways. 11. Zach Collins, C, Gonzaga (previous: 16): Collins is a skilled big man who measured with a 9-foot-3 standing reach. He has terrific post moves, a good shooting stroke and was a strong rim protector for Gonzaga who learned a lot mechanically from their coaching staff.

    The questions are with his overall feel for the game — given that he has played less basketball than the other elite players — and his physical strength. He might end up being a steal at this spot, but there's more uncertainty with his talent. 12. Luke Kennard, G, Duke (previous: 13): Kennard might be the most consistent shooter in the draft, and pairs that shooting with a terrific offensive game off the bounce — both in the pick-and-roll and when attacking closeouts. He's also an excellent passer for his size.

    The question will be whether a team can get anything out of him defensively. 13. John Collins, F/C, Wake Forest (previous: 19): Collins was maybe the most productive player for his age in the country this season. Don't believe me? At 19 years old, Collins is around the same age as Lonzo Ball, Jonathan Isaac, Dennis Smith and Zach Collins.
