17. Memphis Grizzlies: Liam McNeeley, SG/SF, Indiana Duke
The Grizzlies have many needs, which makes their reach for Zach Edey very curious. They have to find better wing play.

18. Phoenix Suns: Jaland Lowe, G, Pittsburgh Pittsburgh
Here’s some better play for Phoenix’s bench, which is an area that must be repaired.

19. Oklahoma City Thunder Oklahoma City Thunder: Cam Scott, SG, South Carolina South Carolina
The Thunder love adding guards to their roster even though they have a billion of them. Perhaps they’ll continue to do so.

20. Golden State Warriors: Jase Richardson, G, Michigan State
Steph Curry doesn’t have much more time remaining in the NBA, so the Warriors may want to find a successor.

21. Los Angeles Clippers: Asa Newell, PF, Georgia Georgia
If Paul George leaves, Kawhi Leonard would move to small forward, opening up a need at the four.

22. New Orleans Pelicans: Motiejus Krivas, C, Arizona Arizona
The Pelicans may try their hand at another center so that they can make sure they find a solution at the position.

23. Oklahoma City Thunder Oklahoma City Thunder: William Riley, SG/SF, Illinois
The Thunder can finally move away from adding guards to give themselves a new wing.

24. New York Knicks: Rylan Griffen, SG, Kansas
The Knicks need to find someone besides Jalen Brunson who can create his own shot.

25. Dallas Mavericks: Karter Knox, SF, Arkansas
The Mavericks have two stellar guards, but they’ll need to find upgrades elsewhere.

26. Utah Jazz Utah Jazz: Flory Bidunga, C, Kansas Kansas
The Jazz don’t have a true center, so they may use one of their 2025 picks to address the position.

27. New York Knicks: Kanaan Carlyle, G, Indiana
Once again, the Knicks will have to do whatever it takes to obtain some offensive play-makers.

28. Orlando Magic: Xavier Booker, PF, Michigan State Michigan State
The Magic could use one of their two picks to add an insurance policy for Paolo Banchero.

29. Oklahoma City Thunder Oklahoma City Thunder: Derrion Reed, F, Alabama Alabama
Here’s another pick the Thunder could use to obtain some depth at forward.

30. Boston Celtics: K.J. Lewis, SG, Arizona Arizona
The Celtics have no needs, so they can draft the best player available with this pick.
