2020 NBA DRAFT BOARD


Rankings are whatever, so this is mostly just a basic soft order on which skillsets/theories-of-players I like/value more than others. As you can see, the list is heavily skewed towards wing-sized players, with a few exceptions squeezed in.

I still very much subscribe to the notion that very little of what these players do now is indicative of whether or not they will make it in the pros.

The list only contains prospects I’ve been able to see enough to be able to write about.

The heights listed are always heights without shoes, when I can find them, because it’s the new NBA standard, and if I can’t, then I go to the official listing.

Stats are updated through August 7th, 2020 and have been researched on RealGMhoop-mathbarttorviksports-reference and kenpom.


1. LaMELO BALL, ILLAWARRA (AUSTRALIA)

LABEL: 6’5” WING-SIZED POINT GUARD / NEEDS TO BE HIDDEN ON DEFENSE

LAST REPORT: DEC/20/2019

SCOUTING REPORTS: https://basketballscouting.wordpress.com/tag/lamelo-ball/

Ball is the third-youngest player on ESPN’s top 100, only turning 19 at the end of August.

Having gone through an extremely unusual path on his way to the NBA, he has played for four different teams/schools over the last four years (Chino Hills High School, Prienu Vytautas, SPIRE Academy and Illawarra) and has not completed a full season in either of his stops.

Ball finished the season with just 407 minutes logged, which is the fifth-lowest mark on ESPN’s top 100, discounting the three high schoolers (Kenyon Martin, Jr., Karim Mane and Josh Hall) for whom there is no statistical data available.

While averaging 21.9 points per 40 minutes on 20.7 field goal attempts per 40 minutes, his 47.9% true shooting is the third-worst mark among players ranked on ESPN’s top 100 – behind only Louis Olinde and Kahlil Whitney.

Nonetheless, his 5.9 pure point ratio is the best mark in this draft class.

His 36.9% assist rate led the Australian NBL last season and his 12.1% turnover rate is extremely impressive considering his high assist rate and his 27.2% usage rate. His 2.67 assist-to-turnover ratio is the second-best mark on ESPN’s top 100 – behind only Malachi Flynn.

His 22.2% defensive rebounding rate was the second-best mark among perimeter players on ESPN’s top 100 – behind only CJ Elleby.

2. ANTHONY EDWARDS, GEORGIA

LABEL: 6’5” WING-SIZED SLASHER / NEEDS TO BE HIDDEN ON DEFENSE

LAST REPORT: AUG/6/2019

SCOUTING REPORTS: https://basketballscouting.wordpress.com/tag/anthony-edwards/

Edwards is the fourth-youngest player on ESPN’s top 100, having turned 19 earlier in the week.

He took 505 shots in 1,057 minutes last season, with only Markus Howard and Jordan Ford attempting more field goals over the course of the year.

His 23.1 points per 40 minutes rank 15th on ESPN’s top 100 but his .473 effective field goal percentage is one of the 15 worst marks among the same group.

Despite his large frame, Edwards took just 26.5% of his live-ball attempts at the rim, while being assisted on over a third of his makes within close range. His 33.9% free throw rate also stands out as disappointing.

His 48.5% three-point rate is a top 15 mark among players ranked on ESPN’s top 100 and his average of 1.48 unassisted three-point makes per 40 minutes ranks second among prospects who played in the NCAA last season but overall he shot just 29.5% on 371 attempts away from the basket.

Edwards assisted on 17.9% of Georgia’s scores when he was on the floor but at a 1.05 assist-to-turnover ratio.

3. JAMES WISEMAN, MEMPHIS

LABEL: 6’11” FINISHER / RIM PROTECTOR

LAST REPORT: JUNE/6/2020

SCOUTING REPORTS: https://basketballscouting.wordpress.com/tag/james-wiseman/

Wiseman logged a total of 69 minutes in his three appearances at Memphis.

Over his short stay, he averaged 34.2 points per 40 minutes on 76% true shooting, 18.6 rebounds per 40 minutes and 5.2 blocks per 40 minutes.

4. DENI AVDIJA, MACCABI TEL AVIV (ISRAEL)

LABEL: 6’7” 3&D WING / WEAKSIDE DEFENDER

LAST REPORT: AUG/24/2020

SCOUTING REPORTS: https://basketballscouting.wordpress.com/tag/deni-avdija/

Avdija saw the most time on the court of any prospect in this draft class – logging 1,281 minutes in 59 appearances last season.

He averaged 21.7 minutes per game for a team that had 19 wins in 28 games in the Euroleague before the season was ended prematurely because of the pandemic and went on to win the Israeli Winner League upon returning for a sprint to the finish, winning local MVP honors along the way.

Avdija hit one third of his 183 three-point shots, at a pace of 5.7 such attempts per 40 minutes last season, while shooting just 58.5% on 114 free throws. He shot 57.9% on 402 foul shots across all the tournaments RealGM has tracked his participation in over the last four years.

Nonetheless, his 58.1% effective field goal percentage this past year ranks sixth among players on ESPN’s top 100, achieved thanks to his 65% efficiency on 217 two-point shots, another top six mark in this class.

His 21.7% defensive rebounding rate ranks sixth among perimeter players on ESPN’s top 100 and his average of 2.5 steals + blocks per 40 minutes is a top 20 mark among the same group.

He was named MVP of the 2019 U20 European Championships after leading Israel to a title in home soil as a primary shot creator, compiling a 28.4% usage rate and a 27.6% assist rate in that event but struggling for efficiency against competition on average a year-and-a-half older than him, putting up just 51.7% true shooting.

5. PATRICK WILLIAMS, FLORIDA STATE

LABEL: 6’8” 3&D WING WHO COULD STEAL TIME AT CENTER / SWITCH DEFENDER

LAST REPORT: MAR/31/2020

SCOUTING REPORTS: https://basketballscouting.wordpress.com/tag/patrick-williams/

Williams is the second-youngest player on ESPN’s top 100, only turning 19 at the end of August.

His 3.6 steals + blocks per 40 minutes leads all perimeter prospects on ESPN’s top 100, though his 13.8% defensive rebounding rate is somewhat disappointing for someone his size.

As is his 62.4% shooting at the rim when you consider he was assisted in almost half of his makes there and another quarter materialized via putbacks.

His 24.2% three-point rate is the sixth-lowest mark among perimeter players on ESPN’s top 100 and he hit just 34.1% of his 123 shots away from the basket.

Williams has a background as a point forward in lower levels but had a 0.58 assist-to-turnover ratio in his one year at Florida State.

6. ISAAC OKORO, AUBURN

LABEL: 6’5” 3&D WING / SWITCH DEFENDER

LAST REPORT: FEB/26/2020

SCOUTING REPORTS: https://basketballscouting.wordpress.com/tag/isaac-okoro/

Okoro took 61.1% of his live-ball attempts at the rim, the best mark among perimeter players on ESPN’s top 100 who played in the NCAA last season. He was assisted on less than a third of his makes within close range and had just nine baskets born out of putbacks.

His 60.3% two-point percentage on 174 such attempts ranks fourth among perimeter players on ESPN’s top 100 and his 54.9% free throw rate is the second-best mark within the same group, behind only Mason Jones.

Okoro shot 25.3% on 95 attempts away from the rim, the single worst mark among perimeter players on ESPN’s top 100 who played in the NCAA last season. He also missed one third of his 134 free throws.

His average of 2.3 steals + blocks per 40 minutes ranked him 24th among perimeter players on ESPN’s top 100 and he collected just 8.7% of opponents’ misses when he was on the floor last season.

7. DEVIN VASSELL, FLORIDA STATE

LABEL: 6’5” WING-SIZED SLASHER / WEAKSIDE DEFENDER

LAST REPORT: MAR/31/2020

SCOUTING REPORTS: https://basketballscouting.wordpress.com/tag/devin-vassell/

Vassell is listed at 180 pounds, which makes him one of the 15 lightest players on ESPN’s top 100.

He nailed 41.5% of his 106 three-point shots last season, a top 15 mark on ESPN’s top 100, but on just 4.9 such attempts per 40 minutes, while taking just 36.1% of his live-ball attempts per 40 minutes – a pedestrian three-point rate for someone who profiles as a shooter.

While he showed a ton of smoothness operating off the bounce, Vassell had just 18 unassisted makes at the rim in 862 minutes, averaged just 1.81 unassisted makes from mid-range per 40 minutes and assisted on just 11.2% of Florida State’s scores when he was on the floor, though his 23 total turnovers (in 30 appearances) stands out as a top six mark in this class.

His average of 3.3 steals + blocks per 40 minutes ranks third among perimeter players on ESPN’s top 100.

8. AARON NESMITH, VANDERBILT

LABEL: 6’6” WING SHOOTER / WEAKSIDE DEFENDER

LAST REPORT: MAY/5/2020

SCOUTING REPORTS: https://basketballscouting.wordpress.com/tag/aaron-nesmith/

Nesmith nailed 52.2% of his 115 three-point shots last season, which was cut short in half due to injury. That is the best mark among all prospects on ESPN’s top 100. His 56.1% three-point rate ranks third within the same group, behind only Justinian Jessup and Louis Olinde.

He also hit 52 of his 63 free throws. His 68.5% true shooting ranks second on ESPN’s top 100, behind only James Wiseman, who is a center and logged just 69 total minutes last season.

Nesmith assisted on just 5.8% of Vanderbilt’s scores when he was on the floor. His 0.54 assist-to-turnover ratio is the second-worst mark among perimeter players on ESPN’s top 100, behind only Kahlil Whitney.

SCOUTING REPORTS: https://basketballscouting.wordpress.com/tag/desmond-bane/

Bane hit 44.2% of his 175 three-point shots last season, which is the fifth-best mark on ESPN’s top 100, behind only Aaron Nesmith, Yoeli Childs, Borisa Simanic, Rokas Jokubaitis and Saddiq Bey.

His average of 0.97 unassisted three-point makes per 40 minutes is one of the 10 best marks among those on ESPN’s top 100 who played in the NCAA last season.

He was assisted on 37.3% of his makes at the rim as a senior, 47.6% as a junior, 57.5% as a sophomore and 54.2% as a freshman.

His average of 1.46 unassisted makes at the rim per 40 minutes is a bottom 20 mark among those on ESPN’s top 100 who played in the NCAA last season.

His 13.1% free throw rate is the second-worst mark on ESPN’s top 100, behind only Borisa Simanic.

LABEL: 6’5” WING SHOOTER / NEEDS TO BE HIDDEN ON DEFENSE

LAST REPORT: JUNE/1/2020

SCOUTING REPORTS: https://basketballscouting.wordpress.com/tag/isaiah-joe/

Joe took 76.4% of his live-ball attempts from three-point range, which is the best mark on ESPN’s top 100.

Though he hit just 34.2% of his three-point shots, which was a tad disappointing, his sheer volume of attempts made up for it, as his average of 4.0 three-point makes per 40 minutes ranks third on ESPN’s top 100.

Joe took a grand total of 22 shots at the rim in 937 minutes this past season, which represented just 6.1% of his live-ball attempts, by far the lowest rate among those on ESPN’s top 100 who played in the NCAA last season.

His average of 1.8 steals + blocks per 40 minutes is one of the 25 lowest marks on ESPN’s top 100.

Listed at 167 pounds, Joe is tied with Vit Krejci as the second-lightest players on ESPN’s top 100, only ahead of six-foot-one Tyrell Terry.

11. KILLIAN HAYES, ULM (DEUTSCHLAND)

LABEL: 6’4” CARETAKER / NEEDS TO BE HIDDEN ON DEFENSE

LAST REPORT: DEC/12/2020

SCOUTING REPORTS: https://basketballscouting.wordpress.com/tag/killian-hayes/

Hayes is the fifth-youngest player on ESPN’s top 100, having just turned 19 last June.

His 38.7% assist rate is the best mark in this draft class but his average of 5.2 turnovers per 40 minutes is the worst.

He missed 70.6% of his 102 three-point shots but hit 78 of his 89 free throws and his 58.8% two-point shooting, on 182 such attempts, is a top 10 mark among perimeter players on ESPN’s top 100.

Hayes averaged 2.3 steals per 40 minutes, a top six mark in this draft class, but also 4.8 personal fouls per 40 minutes, the third-worst mark among perimeter players on ESPN’s top 100.

12. ABDOULAYE N’DOYE, CHOLET (FRANCE)

LABEL: 6’7” WING-SIZED POINT GUARD / WEAKSIDE DEFENDER

LAST REPORT: AUG/4/2017

SCOUTING REPORTS: https://basketballscouting.wordpress.com/tag/abdoulaye-ndoye/

N’Doye averaged 30.8 minutes per game in his 26 appearances with Cholet last season, which is the second-highest mark among pros on ESPN’s top 100, behind only LaMelo Ball.

He shot 42.9% on 35 three-point shots but at a pace of just 1.8 such attempts per 40 minutes. His 19.2% three-point rate is the lowest mark among all perimeter players on ESPN’s top 100.

N’Doye averaged 1.46 points per shot, a top 10 mark among the same group, but logged just 16.4% usage rate. His 44% free-throw rate stands out as a top 10 mark as well and, as he converted 75% of his 80 foul shots, so did his 61% true shooting.

He assisted on 20.8% of Cholet’s scores when he was on the floor, at a 1.89 assist-to-turnover ratio.

13. MASON JONES, ARKANSAS

LABEL: 6’5” WING-SIZED SLASHER / NEEDS TO BE HIDDEN ON DEFENSE

SCOUTING REPORTS: https://basketballscouting.wordpress.com/tag/mason-jones/

Jones averaged 26.1 points per 40 minutes on 31.7% usage rate last season, both top 10 marks on ESPN’s top 100. His 61.4% true shooting ranks seventh among perimeter players.

His average of 2.79 unassisted makes at the rim per 40 minutes is the ninth-best mark among perimeter players on ESPN’s top 100 who played in the NCAA last season.

His average of 1.37 unassisted three-point makes per 40 minutes is the third-best mark among the same group.

Jones took 46% of his live-ball attempts from three-point range, which is a top 20 mark in this draft class, and hit them at a 35.1% clip but overall he missed two-thirds of his 294 total shots away from the rim.

His average of 10.8 free throws per 40 minutes ranks fourth on ESPN’s top 100, only behind centers James Wiseman, Vernon Carey, Jr., and Filip Petrusev.

He assisted on 22.9% of Arkansas’ scores when he was on the floor, but at a lousy 1.07 assist-to-turnover ratio.

Having turned 22 in June, he’s one of the 40 oldest players on ESPN’s top 100.

LABEL: 6’7” 3&D WING WHO COULD STEAL TIME AT CENTER / SWITCH DEFENDER

LAST REPORT: AUG/16/2020

Doolittle is about to turn 23 in October, which makes him one of the 15 oldest players on ESPN’s top 100.

He was assisted on just a quarter of his field-goals made, while taking 57% of his live-ball attempts on two-point shots away from the rim and nailing them at a 43.3% clip.

Doolittle had just 27 dunks in 3,081 NCAA minutes across four seasons at Oklahoma.

His 52.2% shooting at the rim is the fourth-worst mark among those on ESPN’s top 100 who played in college last season.

16. JOSH GREEN, ARIZONA

LABEL: 6’6” 3&D WING / WEAKSIDE DEFENDER

LAST REPORT: DEC/24/2019

McDaniels took 42.0% of his live-ball attempts on two-pointers away from the basket and converted them at a 39% clip, with 80% of them unassisted.

He shot 55.9% on just 68 attempts at the rim, a bottom 10 mark among top 100 prospects who played in the NCAA last season, and averaged 4.2 turnovers per 40 minutes, turning the ball over on a fifth of the possessions he used.

LABEL: 6’6” 3&D WING / WEAKSIDE DEFENDER

LAST REPORT: MAR/9/2020

SCOUTING REPORTS: https://basketballscouting.wordpress.com/tag/cassius-stanley/

Stanley is a pretty unusual prospect in the sense that he’ll turn 21 in a few days but really only has one year of college basketball experience in his résumé, without a post-graduate year, a redshirt year or a year in the Junior College ranks that would help explain his timeline.

He hit 36.0% of his 86 three-point shots last season, at a pace of 4.3 such attempts per 40 minutes. His 31.6% three-point rate is one of the 20 lowest marks among perimeter players on ESPN’s top 100.

His 0.56 assist-to-turnover ratio is the third-worst mark among the same group.

Stanley took 49.3% of his live-ball attempts at the rim but converted just 58.6% of them, while assisted on almost half of them – shooting 97% on 33 dunks and 46% on 100 layups.

LABEL: 6’5” CARETAKER / WEAKSIDE DEFENDER

LAST REPORT: JAN/21/2020

Listed at 175 pounds, Haliburton is one of the eight thinnest prospects on ESPN’s top 100.

His average of 36.7 minutes per game in 22 appearances is a top five mark in this draft class, as are his 33.8% assist rate and 2.33 assist-to-turnover ratio.

He nailed 41.9% of his 124 three-point shots last season, at a pace of 6.1 such attempts per 40 minutes. His 50.8% three-point rate is a top 10 mark.

His 18.4% free throw rate, meanwhile, is the fourth lowest mark on ESPN’s top 100 and he took just a quarter of his live-ball attempts at the rim.

His average of 2.7 steals per 40 minutes is tied for the best mark on ESPN’s top 100, alongside Leandro Bolmaro.

20. ONYEKA OKONGWU, SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

LABEL: 6’9” FINISHER / RIM PROTECTOR

LAST REPORT: MAR/26/2020

SCOUTING REPORTS: https://basketballscouting.wordpress.com/tag/onyeka-okongwu/

Okongwu averaged 3.5 blocks per 40 minutes, the third-best mark on ESPN’s top 100. His average of 5.1 steals + blocks per 40 minutes ranks fourth among the same group.

With him anchoring the defense for 30.6 minutes per game, Southern California ranked 27th in the country in field goal percentage allowed at the rim.

His 18.5% defensive rebounding rate stands out as a bottom six mark among big men on ESPN’s top 100.

Two-thirds of his live-ball attempts took place near the rim and he shot 72.6% on them but Onyeka also managed to convert 41.5% of his 94 two-point shots away from the immediate basket area and 72% of his 143 free throws. His 64.5% true shooting ranks sixth on ESPN’s top 100.

21. PRECIOUS ACHIUWA, MEMPHIS

LABEL: 6’9” FINISHER / RIM PROTECTOR

LAST REPORT: JUL/27/2020

SCOUTING REPORTS: https://basketballscouting.wordpress.com/tag/precious-achiuwa/

Achiuwa averaged 14.2 rebounds per 40 minutes last season, which is tied with Nathan Knight for the fifth-best mark on ESPN’s top 100, behind only James Wiseman, Tyrique Jones, Udoka Azubuike and Omer Yurtseven.

His 3.9 steals + blocks per 40 minutes is tied with Jalen Smith for a top 10 mark among the same group and he averaged 30.4 minutes per game on a team that ranked first in the country in shooting percentage allowed at the rim and fourth in percentage of shots blocked at the rim.

Despite taking 62.6% of his live-ball attempts at the rim and converting those at a 64.1% clip, his 53.4% true shooting stands out as one of the 25 lowest marks on ESPN’s top 100 due to his 24.6% shooting on 138 attempts away from the rim and 59.9% shooting on 187 free throws.

His 148 makes at the rim rank fourth among NCAA prospects listed on ESPN’s top 100 and his 64.1% shooting on 231 total attempts at the basket looks solid on the surface but subtracting his 47-for-52 shooting on dunks results in Achiuwa shooting just 56.4% on 179 layups.

His 0.34 assist-to-turnover ratio is the fourth-worst mark among all prospects on ESPN’s top 100.

LAST REPORT: JAN/22/2020

SCOUTING REPORTS: https://basketballscouting.wordpress.com/tag/jack-white/

White turned 23 in early August.

His 65% three-point rate catches the attention, as no one on ESPN’s top 100 has a higher mark, though he hit just 32.7% of them last season. It’s noteworthy he hit 46 of his 57 foul shots in his fourth years at Duke.

His average of 3.8 steals + blocks per 40 minutes also stands out, as it would rank 12th on ESPN’s top 100, if he were ranked.

23. DWAYNE SUTTON, LOUISVILLE

He limited his in-between attempts to just 14.2% of his shot profile and averaged just 1.3 turnovers per 40 minutes.

His 19.9% defensive rebounding rate would be a top 10 mark among perimeter players on ESPN’s top 100.

He missed 70.6% of his 51 three-point shots, at a pace of 5.6 such attempts per 40 minutes. His 48.4% two-point shooting is the 26th-worst mark on ESPN’s top 100 and his 26.4% free throw is the 16th-worst among the same group.

His 22.6% free throw rate is one of the 10 lowest marks on ESPN’s top 100.

Bolmaro averaged 22.2 points per 40 minutes on 54.3% true shooting with Barça B in the Spanish LEB Plata (Spanish third division) and elevated the level of the team, which won seven of the nine games he participated in but just seven of the 17 when he wasn’t there.

Mane averaged 19.4 points per 40 minutes on 19.4 field goal attempts per 40 minutes at the 2019 U19 World Cup.

His 45.1% three-point rate in that tournament is one of the 25 best marks on ESPN’s top 100, given that there’s no data available from his season with Vanier College for a more fitting comparison, but he hit just 32.4% of those shots. He also missed 10 of his 20 foul shots, which tanked his true shooting percentage even further to 45.2%.

Mane assisted on 22.7% of Canada’s scores when he was on the floor, at a 1.3 assist-to-turnover ratio, but also averaged 4.0 turnovers per 40 minutes.

His total of 80 blocks leads all players in this draft class and his 10.9% block rate ranks second, behind only James Wiseman, who compiled his figure in just 69 minutes. With him anchoring the defense for 27.7 minutes per game last season, Kansas ranked 18th in the country in shooting percentage allowed at the rim and second in adjusted defensive efficiency.

His 27% defensive rebounding rate is the fifth-best mark on ESPN’s top 100 and his 15.3% offensive rebounding rate is the fourth-best mark.

Azubuike shot a staggering 85.2% on 169 attempts at the rim. His 144 makes near the rim is the sixth-best mark among those on ESPN’s top 100 who played in the NCAA last season. He was assisted on 102 of those and another 22 of them were born out of putbacks.
