Let the Warriors Light the Way
The Magic have been looking for a franchise point guard since The wingspan recorded at the combine was impressive, and if Bamba can show teams in workouts that he is developing as a shooter — word is he has made significant progress already — he might not last till No.
He is only pounds, so he needs weight. He will need to hone his shot at the NBA level, but he has potential from the perimeter. This may be the guy the Knicks need to play alongside Kristaps Porzingis. He is with a He is a solid, versatile, high-IQ big man to give the Knicks an anchor with Porzingis. Bridges is 21 and had a breakout year as a junior, leaving some teams wary of his upside. But he is a wing who has two NCAA championships, averaged But the Sixers need a wing who can shoot.
Bridges is a fantastic athlete who brings strength and defensive versatility — he can defend three positions — as well as an ability to attack the rim with force. He was not a great shooter in college, but there is room to develop from the perimeter. The Clippers, of course, are not sure what will happen with DeAndre Jordan who has a player option for next season , but there are not likely to be any great centers available here.
But the question is whether his jumper is good enough to be a perimeter player. It might be good to add size here, but there are no ready-made big men once you get past the top 10 in the draft. Thomas could be a good fit, though.
This could be Michael Porter Jr. Adding Carter to the frontcourt alongside Lauri Markkanen would create a modernized duo capable of spreading out the floor. The big man would also give the team additional protection at the rim. Porter would be a solid selection for the Cavaliers here, as he could potentially slot in as the next man up should LeBron James leave this summer or play off him as a dangerous shooting threat if he sticks around.
He slots in here as a potential frontcourt partner of the future for Kristaps Porzingis. The Sixers have long been linked with the Villanova product for obvious reasons. As a 3-and-D wing, Bridges would fit in well as a complementary piece on a roster already shaping up to be built around Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid and possibly Markelle Fultz. Two other names to watch at this spot are Kevin Knox and Zhaire Smith. Both players worked out twice for Philadelphia during the pre-draft process.
The guard has elite intangibles in terms of his toughness and competitiveness, but questions remain about his actual ability on the floor. Is he capable of finishing inside against NBA athletes? And will the jump shot translate at a reasonable level?
If they do stay here, Bridges would make a lot of sense. Denver needs a long-term solution at small forward, and the year-old could help. Not originally thought of as a one-and-done prospect, Smith now appears set to become the rare non-top freshman to go in the first round. Holiday worked out twice for Phoenix during the pre-draft process, and the Suns are in search of a more consistent solution at point guard. Whether the year-old has much starter equity is open to interpretation, but if the Suns take him here, they clearly believe in him.
Robinson has skyrocketed up NBA Draft boards during the pre-draft process, as teams have seemingly fallen in love with his potential as a shot maker. The guard converted An improved free-throw percentage helps provide credence to the idea that his shot will be sustainable from the deeper 3-point line. Huerter is a high-IQ prospect with an elite 3-point shot who would seem to fit the archetype of prospects the Spurs like.
