2020 NBA Mock Draft: Round 1 – Picks 1-15
2020 NBA Mock Draft: Round 2

  1. Orlando Magic: Josh Green, SG, Arizona, 6-6, Fr.
    With ideal size for an NBA shooting guard, Green soars at the rim but also has catch-and-shoot ability from deep.

  2. Oklahoma City Thunder: Jordan Nwora, SF, Louisville, 6-8, Jr.
    Shooting was highly coveted in the 2019 NBA Draft, meaning a lengthy forward like Nwora who can light it up from deep will be someone to keep an eye on.

  3. Milwaukee Bucks (from Indiana): A.J. Lawson, SG, South Carolina, 6-6, Soph.
    Lawson is a lengthy and athletic wing who can score at all levels. Don’t be surprised if you see a breakout sophomore season from the Canadian.

  4. Atlanta Hawks (from Brooklyn): Scottie Lewis, G/F, Florida, 6-5, Fr.
    Lewis is a skilled and versatile wing but he needs to add muscle to his slender frame before being ready to make an impact at the next level.

  5. Toronto Raptors: Ashton Hagans, PG, Kentucky, 6-3, Soph.
    Like many point guards in this class, Hagans’ shooting needs to improve. However, he is at his best when using his quickness and athleticism to get to the basket. Hagans can more than hold his own on the defensive end as well.

  6. Boston Celtics: Killian Tillie, PF, Gonzaga, 6-10, Sr.
    Injuries curtailed his junior season, but the Frenchman is a prototypical face-up four who can operate effectively down low but really stretch defenses with his outside shooting.

  7. Portland Trail Blazers: Trenton Watford, F, LSU, 6-9, Fr.
    Watford is a crafty scorer who won’t wow you with his athleticism but knows how to get buckets.

  8. Utah Jazz: Reggie Perry, PF, Mississippi State, 6-9, Soph.
    The Bulldog has a well-rounded game but doesn’t really excel in any one area.

  9. Denver Nuggets: Neemias Queta, C, Utah State, 6-11, Soph.
    A native of Portugal, Queta is a rim-protecting big man who can clean up the glass.

  10. Golden State Warriors: Charles Bassey, C, Western Kentucky, 6-10, Soph.
    Bassey reclassified to the 2018 class and has all the physical attributes to be an effective low post player, although he also can step out and face up.

  11. Brooklyn Nets (from Philadelphia): Tyrese Haliburton, G, 6-5, Iowa State, Soph.
    The Oshkosh, Wisconsin native is a length combo guard who awesome in transition but can use work with his outside shooting.

  12. Los Angeles Lakers: Andrew Nembhard, PG, Florida, 6-5, Soph.
    A true distributor with terrific size for the point guard position, Nembhard has a very mature feel and understanding of how to run a team.

  13. Boston Celtics (from Milwaukee): E.J. Montgomery, PF, Kentucky, 6-10, Soph.
    The lefty brings versatility to the power forward position, but his development as a sophomore will be essential for him to be a first-round pick.

  14. Houston Rockets: Tre Jones, PG, Duke, 6-2, Soph.
    Jones is a true floor general and terrific defender, but really struggled shooting the rock during his freshman campaign.

  15. Los Angeles Clippers: Udoka Azubuike, C, Kansas, 7-0, Sr.
    Azubuike is a prototypical big man who uses his physicality in the paint. His offensive game is fairly limited though, with most of his buckets coming at the rim.
