Here's five things that could happen during the NBA draft tomorrow night. Some make more sense than others, but it is always fun to look at scenarios.
Shai-Gilgeous Alexander has drawn serious interest from the Toronto Raptors. There have been plenty of rumors about the Raps trading into the top 10. But, what if they don't have to trade into the top 10 to get Shai? In my opinion, if Alexander falls out of the top 10, he will be a Toronto Raptor. The Raptors will pull the trigger for sure if he isn't a top 10 pick. -
Lonnie Walker is a guy who could get drafted earlier than expected. Teams will value his potential. The fact that he can be a spot up shooter, or a slasher at the next level makes him a player that scouts adore. He's supposed to be a top 20 pick, but I can see him being drafted as high as 9th to New York.
This one is more vague. I think that the Clippers will make a move. What the move is, I don't know, but they're going to make a splash. Could we see Kawhi Leonard become a Clipper tomorrow? Or will they opt towards a rebuild and trade up and take a guy like Mohamed Bamba? The future of the Clippers really relies upon tomorrow. I can't wait to see what they do.
Let's face it, ever since the Dwight Howard trade, the Magic have been lackluster at best. What have they been missing? A franchise player. A player that draws in the fans. A player that has the potential to be the best player on a championship caliber roster. We've seen them draft guys like Jonathan Isaac, who is a good player, but doesn't bring the hype. Orlando will take one of the two players tomorrow: Michael Porter Jr. or Trae Young. Both have the potential to be the star that Orlando needs.
Finally, I think Kemba is getting traded tomorrow. We saw that Charlotte is opting towards a rebuild with the Dwight Howard trade. Kemba will most likely be a Cav tomorrow. A package that includes pick 8, and maybe even Jordan Clarkson is just what Charlotte wants. An under the radar team that Kemba could play for next year is Indiana. They have some pretty good assets. Charlotte can get a package with pick 23 and Domantas Sabonis.
