More Trade-Up Options

528. . SG. Wildcats . TyTy Washington. 20. player

TyTy Washington is an interesting athletic guard who showed good burst. He is not much of a shooter and his point guard and playmaking skills could use some improvement too. For that reason Washington is likely a mystery to figure out what to do with him for the draft despite his potential.

Trevor Keels. 21. player. 434. . SF. Blue Devils

There is a lot to like about Duke’s Trevor Keels.

Keels has good size and good defensive presence coming from Duke. He was a key glue player for the Blue Devils. And he should slot in for a similar role in the NBA. So there is a sign that he could be successful doing the same in the NBA.

The trick for him will be his shooting. Keels is a good shooter, but there was a bit of a boom-or-bust quality to his shooting at Duke. If he was hot, the Blue Devils became pretty much unstoppable. If he struggled, the Blue Devils had to make up for it and hope things turned for him.

22. player. 448. . F. Demon Deacons . Jake LaRavia

Jake LaRavia is going to be an interesting prospect entering this NBA Draft.

LaRavia is something of an undersized forward who is tough and plays with a ton of energy. That energy makes up for any shortcomings he has. But he still has some skill, able to hit from three a bit. Those parts of his game will have to round into form.

But LaRavia is the kind of guy who works his way into a rotation and is hard to keep off the floor because of the energy he provides.

23. player. 488. . SG. Cornhuskers . Bryce McGowens

Some people believe Bryce McGowens has Lottery talent. Plain and simple. His scoring numbers — 16.8 points per game — certainly back that up. McGowens was a dynamic scorer at Nebraska.

McGowens though was fairly inefficient in scoring all those points — 40.3-percent from the floor and 27.4-percent from beyond the arc. Maybe another year in college would have helped round that part of his game out to impress NBA scouts. Perhaps not.

And so the question for McGowens is how he rounds out his game moving forward. But there is still a lot of talent that will be tough to pass.
