NBA Draft: Redrafting the lottery in 2018 after watching a deep class of rookies, led by Luka Doncic, Trae Young



You say the retrospective is 20/20, but that still requires you to be far enough away from the situation to make that decision. After just one year in the 2018 NBA Draft class, we still do not have a complete picture of how players' careers will develop.

However, it is safe to say that, given the information they now have, at least some teams would think twice about their choices last summer. That's why we decided to revise the design for 2018, taking into account the team requirements and skills of last year's newcomers. As you'll see, the order of designs varies a lot, but some teams stick to their original decisions.

. 1
Phoenix Suns

Actual Choice: Deandre Ayton

Last summer, the Suns made their first Draft nomination in franchise history and selected Ayton, who had a strong rookie season. But after seeing Doncic, along with Oscar Robertson, the only freshman scoring an average of over 20 points, seven rebounds and five assists per game, Phoenix has already guessed the decision. Doncic seems to be the perfect match for the modern NBA, and a backspace from him and Devin Booker would be devastatingly devastating for years to come.

. 2 Sacramento Kings

Actual Choice: Marvin Bagley III

Bagley improved all season as a spark plunger and rebound from the bench and looks like a good piece for the future, but after a season, Jackson's blanket seems too its much higher considering its two-way capability. Jackson's defense was spectacular for a freshman, and his attack was far ahead of schedule as the second youngest player in the 2018 draft class. He shot 36% out of the 3-point range and his volume only increases when he makes himself more comfortable. Assuming that the kings wanted to combine a power forward with the electric backcourt of De'Arton Fox and Buddy Hield, Jackson in retrospect seems a more promising choice than Bagley.

. 3 Atlanta Hawks

Current selection: Luka Doncic (traded to Dallas for Young and a pick for the first round of 2019)

Young and Doncic will be forever connected, but after, due to their draft-day trading One season seems to be training for both teams. Doncic is likely to win Rookie of the Year, but Young had incredible moments and proved to be absolutely worthy of the "point guard of the future" the Hawks had assigned him. In addition, the Draft 2019 ranked 10th. There is no reason to believe that Atlanta, if it had to start all over again, would get anyone other than Young # 3 off the board, especially if Doncic is already off the board.

. 4 Memphis Grizzlies

Actual election: Jaren Jackson Jr.

The Grizzlies landed Jackson well in fourth, but if he dropped out of the board, Bagley would be a good option. At the time of the draft, Memphis still had Marc Gasol, so Ayton would not have made much sense. Bagley does not have the defensive potential of Jackson, but offensively he is much more sophisticated and a better rebounder, especially in the offensive area. Bagley was inconsistent in the 3-point area, but there are many reasons to believe that he will continue to improve from depth. He would be a great asset to the imminent reconstruction in Memphis.

. 5 Dallas Mavericks

Actual Choice: Trae Young (traded to Atlanta for Luka Doncic)

There is certainly reason to believe that Dallas would have downplayed if Doncic had already been selected, but if not, Ayton would No. 5 people will see Ayton fall to number 5 in the redrafting of No. 1 and think that it is a small problem – not. Ayton has been great in his rookie season, but it is simply a product of the modern NBA that a center that can not stretch the ground and is not intended as an elite rim protector is worth less than the players it has this season preceded are redraft. The Mavs could be a lot worse than someone who looks like a 20-10 year old man in the overall standings.

. 6 Orlando Magic

Current selection: Mohamed Bamba

After setting the largest span in the history of the NBA combine, Bamba was inferior to an injury-related rookie season. If the magic had known that they would become a playoff team behind an all-star year of Nikola Vucevic, they might have made someone more NBA-capable. Gilgeous-Alexander is just right for us when we saw him as a critical member of a deep and talented Clippers team. The problems of Orlando with the Point Guard have become known over the years. So it would have been a cautious decision to win someone like SGA as a versatile floor leader who is successful at both ends of the floor.

. 7 Chicago Bulls

Current selection: Wendell Carter Jr.

Given the remaining options in 7th place, Carter still seems to be the right choice for the Bulls. He played well in his rookie year before going into the season in mid-January for a thumb injury. Together with Lauri Markkanen, the 6ft 10 Carter forms a promising young forecourt that is versatile on both ends of the ground and complements the Zach LaVine rating on the wing.

. 8 Cleveland Cavaliers

Actual Choice: Collin Sexton

The Cavs hoped that the Brooklyn election they received from the Celtics in the Kyrie Irving deal would be slightly higher, but fell to # 8 and Sexton became the best player available. Given Cleveland's need for a young ball handler, Sexton would still be the choice here. Despite an inefficient rookie season in which he struggled to aggressively engage his team-mates, Sexton proved he consistently scored points and scored the 3-ball much better than expected (40%). He can not act as an All-NBA point guard, but the Cavs could have beaten significantly worse at No.8.

. 9 New York Knicks

Actual selection: Kevin Knox

Knox's rookie season can not be sugar-coated: it was not good. Apart from that, he is in 9th place as good as the only player who appears as a potential franchise player (given the injury problems of Michael Porter Jr.). The Knicks were desperately looking for someone to sell to their fans, and Knox – a 6: 9 wing that can shoot from afar – is just the ticket. He may never reach that limit, but for New York it would still be worth trying to finish in ninth.

10th Philadelphia 76ers

Actual Election : Mikal Bridges (traded to Phoenix for Zhaire Smith and 2021 for Miami in the first round)

Some would argue that the Sixers would have been better off simply retaining Bridges when If they had not been able to shoot Da Huerter for his stars, he seems to be the right choice in 10th. The Maryland 6: 7 product scored an elite of 39% from the depths at 4.7 attempts per game and showed a strong off-the-dribble game while playing solid defense. He would be a good piece of the bank and would take out insurance if Philly worked for the services of J.J. Redick this summer.

. 11 Charlotte Hornets

Actual election: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (traded to Miles Bridges and two picks from the second round on Clippers)

At this point, Charlotte would have a hard time dumping someone with Bamba's head. He may not have produced much in his rookie season, but not many expected him to have an immediate impact. Bamba is said to be an elite rim protector that has the potential to extend to the 3-point line while threatening praise. Charlotte has been a mediocre edge playoff team for several years, and Bamba would at least offer fans something to look forward to.

12th Los Angeles Clippers

Actual selection: Miles Bridges (exchanged for Hornets against Shai Gilgeous-Alexander)

If you were asked to construct the perfect 3-and-D NBA player, he would do just that look Mikal bridges. Bridges had a strong defensive influence as a beginner with 6-7 arms that looked even longer than his 3-foot span, while beating 34% of his 3-point attempts. He would fit well with the playoff-capable Clippers, as he can guard multiple positions as a versatile wing.

. 13 Los Angeles Clippers

Actual selection: Jerome Robinson

The Clippers would still take a Robinson with the option number 13, but instead of a 6-5 shooter it would be a 7-foot shot-blocking machine. With Mikal Bridges in hand, the Clippers could surprise Robinson, who set New York on fire with the Knicks in the second half of the season. His offense is still a huge question mark, but Robinson has proven he can be, for a long time, an elite laureate and razor in this league.

fourteenth Denver Nuggets

Current selection: Michael Porter Jr.

Despite his alarming medical history, Porter's final selection of the lottery is still the best selection for the Nuggets. Denver, with his core of Nikola Jokic, Jamal Murray and Gary Harris, is well prepared for the future and obviously has no problem winning games. So it makes sense to count on Porter, who is considered by some recruiting services to be the best player in his class. He missed his rookie season during rehab, but if he can return healthy, the 6-10 striker has all-star potential – not easy to get past # 14.
