My first five NBA 2020 draft picks


Draft stage from 2016

Max Lorenz, Staff Writer

The 2020 NBA draft class is going to be one to be remembered. The potential is crazy, but what will the order of the players go? The first five teams to pick are:

  1. Timberwolves
  2. Warriors
  3. Hornets
  4. Bulls
  5. Cavaliers

This draft class has so much talent and possibly could be one of the best ever.

I predict that LaMelo Ball will go to the Timberwolves. With his big name and his brother, Lonzo, playing for the Pelicans, I could see him going first overall. He is a 6-foot-7 point guard who played overseas in Australia. His potential and athleticism are out of the roof. You can’t go wrong picking him.

The Warriors have the second pick and they badly need a big man. I could see them picking Deni Avdiji. He is a 6-foot-9 point forward. He has picked up steam the past few months and respectably so. He can do it all and would be a perfect fit for the Warriors.

The third pick, the Hornets, could pick Anthony Edwards from Georgia. They need a playmaker who can bring attention to their struggling team. His 6-foot-5 frame is perfect for a shooting guard. He has a high ceiling and could bring some fans to Charlotte.

The Bulls with the fourth pick should pick Killian Hayes from Germany. The Bulls have a talented young roster, but they just need one more star. Hayes could be that guy. He is a 6-foot-5 playmaking point guard. While he still has a long way to go, his potential is very high.

With the fifth pick, the Cavaliers could pick James Wiseman. The Cavaliers have drafted two guards in the past two drafts. This year they could pick Wiseman, a center, who is a 7-foot-1. He still needs time to develop, but that would be perfect for a young Cavaliers team who are all still developing.
