Point guards have been a very interesting topic in this year’s NBA Draft class. Many of them are high-octane, explosive talents; while many of them are great floor generals who can read defenses to set their teammates in the best positions.  Malachi Flynn is a point guard who can impact the game on so many levels.

Hampton has been gaining momentum during the pre-draft process due to positive reports from workouts, and an impressive cast of current and former NBA players who have been helping him train.  The 19-year-old took a fairly unusual route to the draft, choosing the Australian NBL over college, and he was limited to 17 games due to injury.  Considering his youth and the level of competition, [ . . . ]

The world has seemed to have forgotten how elite of a center James Wiseman is. During his brief time at Memphis, the top-ranked recruit of the 2019 class showed that he was a dominant player, who was bigger, stronger and more physical than everyone else. Wiseman is anticipated to be a lottery pick in this year’s draft, projected to go as high as No. 1. [ . . . ]

Avdija is one of the more versatile players in the 2020 draft class — he can do a little bit of everything, and he is a proven winner, helping Maccabi Tel Aviv win a championship in Israeli BSL this summer.  He has size, is solidly built, and is a competitive athlete, with lots of skill and a high basketball IQ.  He can play at either [ . . . ]
