F. Charlotte Hornets. Jalen Johnson. 11. player. 170.

Picked by Justin Szemes

Jalen Johnson was a top recruit in the 2020 class who many predicted would be a top-five pick in this draft class. But after a tough season at Duke, in which he ended up leaving the team mid-season to get ready for the draft, he will fall in this draft. This is a good spot for him and will be a great value at 11.

He has great size and athleticism that will make him a great front-court fit for a team with athletic guards who like to get up the court. On top of his size and athleticism, he is also a quality playmaker and they will be able to play point forward at this. He needs to improve his shot as he has struggled when teams have been able to stop him from getting to the basketball but Charlotte is building a very skilled team and Johnson will be a great fit.

San Antonio Spurs. James Bouknight. 12. player. 29. . G

Picked by Jacob Warfle

Many recent mocks have James Bouknight jumping into the top-seven range, making this a great get for the San Antonio Spurs. At this point, the Spurs need to be fully focused on acquiring talent, regardless of positional fit.

Bouknight is one of the few players left on this board with go-to scorer potential. With good size and length (6-foot-5 with a 6-foot-9 wingspan) at the 2-guard, Bouknight can get his shot off at will and proved this year at UConn that he can be deadly from all three levels.

Scouts have compared his scoring and shooting ability to Devin Booker. If he can continue to improve his deep range, it looks like that could become a reality. Not only is Bouknight smooth with his jumper, but he also has shown great scoring ability around the rim with floaters, dunks, and tough finishes.

In 15 games at UConn this season, Bouknight averaged 18.7 points per game and 5.7 rebounds., on 44.7-percent shooting from the field. When healthy, Bouknight looked like one of the most NBA-ready scorers in all of college basketball.

Bouknight’s biggest areas for improvement are playing within an offense and increasing defensive awareness. These are things that should not scare the Spurs away. You draft Bouknight for his offensive ceiling alone and work on the rest.

100. . G. Indiana Pacers. Davion Mitchell. 13. player

Picked by Philip Rossman-Reich

No player probably helped build his reputation or his stock in the NCAA tournament more than Davion Mitchell. That usually might raise some flags for a small sample size, but Mitchell was a key player for a Baylor team that was the best in the country anyway throughout the year.

Capable of playing on and off the ball while providing great defense, Mitchell figures to be someone who easily slots in wherever a team might need him. Winning players usually do well at this part of the draft.

He averaged 14.0 points per game and 5.5 assists per game with 1.9 steals per game. He is a tough-minded defender and that will fit in perfectly with the Indiana Pacers. The Pacers value defense and shooting. And Mitchell even provides that at 44.7-percent from beyond the arc.

41. . G. Golden State Warriors. Tre Mann. 14. player

Drafted by Isaac Ryu

The Golden State Warriors are most likely getting Klay Thompson back next year which means they can build off of an unexpectedly good season. The Warriors are going to be looking to draft someone who can play in their system. Players like Juan Toscano-Anderson, Jordan Poole and Damion Lee have all found success with the Warriors by buying into their roles.

The team is in need of a secondary playmaker/scorer off the bench who will also buy into their role and Mann can be that guy.

Tre Mann is a solid shooter (40-percent on 112 3-point attempts) and has a knack for working defenses in the pick and roll. His inside game is smooth and he has shown the ability to make split-second decisions as the defense closes in on drives.

The Warriors most likely do not draft another big or forward considering they have Draymond Green, James Wiseman, Kelly Oubre and Andrew Wiggins. Their guard rotation is small and lacks any sort of spark-plug action, similar to what Terrence Ross brings to the Orlando Magic, so Tre Mann seems like the logical option.

While he will need to work on his defense, Mann will come under the wing of some of the best defenders in basketball in Klay and Draymond. Mann grew two inches in his freshman year so he is still growing and could potentially defend any of the wing positions.

If drafted, the Warriors will have a lot to work with and like Wiseman, can experiment and see how he fits alongside Curry, Thompson, Wiggins (if he is still around) and Green.

Next. Jeff Weltman stands behind Steve Clifford's job. dark
