His shooting is a work in progress but his potential as a defender and playmaker is substantial. A national champion coming off a prolific and efficient season at Villanova, Bridges perfectly fits the mold of a 3-and-D wing who can guard multiple positions, shoot with range and consistency and play within himself. If Walker falls to no. Related Stories

He regressed greatly as a shooter Still, his gritty defense and athleticism are strong points that lend themselves to an NBA role, and the Blazers could use a tough, hard-nosed player to add to their backcourt.

Amid a challenging year for Arizona, Alkins made the best of a tough situation after breaking his foot in the preseason. He never appeared to be at full strength, and should end up in better shape entering the pre-draft process. Proving himself defensively and adding consistency to his jumper will help.

He plays with a unique change of speeds off the bounce, and solidified himself as a legitimate prospect with a breakout year. Regardless of how dominant Villanova was in sealing the national title, Brunson should have already endeared himself to teams given his otherworldly feel and well-rounded offensive game.

Brunson may be the best of the mid-draft point guard crop, and the late first round is within reach. The Hawks will pick three times in the first round and have a great opportunity to replenish their talent base. Graham is viewed as a safe bet to be a useful ball-handler, though not a star.

Vanderbilt struggles to shoot the three, which despite some ball skills probably keeps him from being much of a perimeter player. Graham will enter the NBA as a readymade backup point guard after being thoroughly tested at Kansas.

He plays both ends, can shoot open threes, but struggles to get into the paint and finish and is already Given the political nature of how the second round works, Carr may end up pushed down to the fringes of the draft after an extremely productive year at Penn State.

Metu is another player who once sat on the first-round cusp and is now pretty firmly in the second, although he may end up benefiting from teams prioritizing big men higher up than this. Hall is another fringe player who has won teams over with his intangibles. Able to play on and off the ball, Hall is an intelligent, high-effort guy who will have a chance to overachieve and find a place in the NBA. He could be a strong two-way contract candidate.

He has serious athletic tools, but a highly questionable feel for the game that limits his upside. His season was cut short by an ACL injury, but he has some ability as a two-way wing player that will warrant a look.

The Nuggets scout Europe as well as any team and have stashed an international second-rounder in each of the last four drafts. He needs to get stronger and expand his secondary skills to have a chance at contributing in the NBA. Between his three-point shooting skills and the fact he could easily be stashed overseas due to his passport, Mykhailiuk should be in the mix at the back end of the draft for a team that needs to maintain roster flexibility.

A native of Ukraine, he began his college career early at 17 and steadily improved into a key scorer for Kansas. On a quest to become the second-ever NBA player from Iceland, it seems like Hlinason will hear his name called after choosing to remain in the draft.

Despite how he was used at Georgia Tech, Okogie doesn't need the ball offensively to have an impact, and he should be able to add value on transition runouts, putbacks 2. The Lakers got good results drafting a Villanova product late in last year's first round Josh Hart , so why not try again? DiVincenzo's stock has climbed rapidly starting with his point effort in the NCAA championship game. More than just a one-game wonder, DiVincenzo has solid statistical projections and played well at the draft combine.

Undrafted Gary Harris The Lakers struggled to score with backup point guards Alex Caruso and Tyler Ennis on the court last season. DiVincenzo would bring far more scoring punch to the position, and his shooting ability would allow him to play off the ball alongside Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram -- or, perhaps, a free agent the Lakers can sign this summer.

Robinson is one of the most polished guards in the class, coming off a productive and efficient season at Boston College, with some particularly impressive showings in ACC play. He made a large volume of 3-pointers on a sparkling 41 percent.

Plus, he's comfortable operating both on and off the ball thanks to his strong feel for the game and ability to create space with footwork and body control. The Sixers will always be looking to add more shooting to their roster, as keeping a well-spaced floor is extremely important with Ben Simmons' lack of range. Robinson is attractive because he's played some point guard in the past and has shown nice flashes as a secondary ball handler. Very much in win-now mode, the Sixers could certainly look to trade this pick for a veteran contributor since adding too many more young players to the roster might not be very attractive to head coach Brett Brown, who is now the final decision-maker in the front office.

If he hadn't been forced to sit out his entire sophomore season at USC, we might be talking about Melton as a top pick in this year's draft. Melton is a Swiss army knife of sorts who averaged a unique 7. He's not a gifted shot creator or half-court scorer, so landing in a situation like Boston is ideal for his current value and long-term future. Should the Celtics lose Marcus Smart to free agency, Melton is the type of gritty defender who could pick up the slack while operating as a high-IQ ball mover on the other end.

He's perfectly suited to play off of offensively gifted stars like Kyrie Irving, Gordon Hayward and Jayson Tatum, and his toughness and basketball mind will fit perfectly with the Celtics' culture.

He's a bit of an outside-the-box prospect, but coach Brad Stevens has the creativity to put Melton in position to succeed. As a prospect, Trent is somewhat one-dimensional. Fortunately, that dimension shooting is in high demand in the NBA right now. Trent shot 40 percent from 3-point range during his lone season at Duke, and his 88 percent free throw shooting suggests that's no fluke. If Trent can develop the strength to hold up against bigger defenders on switches, it's easy to envision him playing a key role on a good team.

For a team famed for its shooting, the Warriors actually had relatively few 3-point threats during their run to a second championship in a row.

Just four Golden State players shot better than 30 percent on 3s in the playoffs: With the Warriors, Trent would have all the open looks he wants. At close to with a near wingspan and fluid athleticism, Bates-Diop is the type of prospect worth taking a flyer on late in the first round. In theory, Bates-Diop has the tools to defend multiple positions, make an open 3 and beat switches in the midpost. He can stand to improve his feel, toughness and shooting range, but given the way the NBA is trending, Bates-Diop has value thanks to his versatility and length.

He also shot better than 40 percent on 3s during three seasons at Creighton, as well as 58 percent on 2s. Welcome to Hawks University! Thomas would apprentice under the similar Kent Bazemore, and he would surely find plenty of playing time off the bench while he grows into a larger role alongside Atlanta's other young talent.

ESPN 0 0 0. Teams are trying to trade up or down looking for the best prospect, and everyone's big board looks different. Our experts are here to help. Dive right in, and see how everything works here. Bobby Marks on the Suns' offseason focus: The big offseason question: Will they extend Booker with a max contract? That figure will be sliced in half if Booker is extended. Marks on the Kings' offseason focus: A strong emphasis on player development that translates to success on the court this season could make Sacramento a free-agent destination in Marks on the Hawks' offseason focus: This would be similar to last year, when the Hawks acquired Jamal Crawford and a first-round pick from the Clippers via Houston.

Marks on the Grizzlies' offseason focus: Keep an eye on Memphis trying to package the No. Marks on the Magic's offseason focus: Marks on the Bulls' offseason focus: Marks on the Cavs' offseason focus: Despite the uncertainty, the big offseason addition will likely come in the lottery. Cleveland will need to take the best available approach despite not knowing whether James will be part of the roster next season.

Keep in mind that the rights to a player can be traded after the draft and leading up to free agency. Marks on the Knicks' offseason focus: That, of course, is if New York waits until next year to sign Kristaps Porzingis to a new contract. More on New York. Marks on the 76ers' offseason focus: If the 76ers strike out in free agency, expect a conservative approach with a focus on the summer of Marks on the Hornets' offseason focus: Marks on the Clippers' offseason focus: Marks on the Clippers' draft strategy: Retain both picks; 2.

Package both picks to move into the top six; 3. Use one of their lottery picks to move back in the draft to acquire a future asset; 4.

Package both picks to target an All-NBA type player and accelerate the rebuild. Marks on the Nuggets' offseason focus: The high salaries could come at the cost of free agent Will Barton. Marks on the Wizards' offseason focus: Marks on the Suns' draft trade options: The cost would likely be this No. The Suns do have Brandon Knight returning from injury, and if he can reach his best Bucks days, Phoenix could have its starting point guard without risking future assets.

Marks on the Bucks' offseason focus: It's crucial that former first-round picks Thon Maker, D. Wilson and their selection develop as part of the rotation. Marks on the Spurs' options trading Kawhi at the draft: Of course, that could change depending on possible Kawhi trade packages, if he is dealt. More on San Antonio.
