Anthony Edwards Continues to Reign as No 1 Pick in Updated 2020 NBA Mock Draft

Here’s a look at the Top Five projected players

June’s 2020 NBA Draft projections have seen another update on Monday, February 17th, made by ESPN NBA Draft analyst and reporter Jonathan Givony.

Let’s take a look at the Top Five players of Givony’s 2020 NBA Mock Draft:

1. Cleveland Cavaliers: Anthony Edwards, G, Georgia

Georgia’s Edwards continues to secure the top spot. The natural scorer averages 19.0 points, 5.3 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game. While he also currently shoots just 30.5 percent from three, his long-term shooting forecasts a more promising outlook.

2. Golden State Warriors: James Wiseman, C, Memphis 

While the 7’1”-tall-with-a 7'6" wingspan Wiseman has never yet played over 25 minutes in a game, his quick, sharp and noble athleticism makes him quite an attractive prospect for Golden State.

3. Atlanta Hawks: Isaac Okoro, G/F, Auburn

The high level defensive Okoro wins hands-down in the draft stock department this winter. With more improvement on his shot, this exceptionally strong athlete will undoubtedly serve as a valuable team player.

4. New York Knicks: LaMelo Ball, G, Australia

With over five million Instagram followers, the already celeb-status Ball is looking like an ideal point guard prospect for the Knicks, as they’ve already phased out Frank Ntilikina or Dennis Smith Jr. as potential long-term candidates.

“There are only a handful of players in the NBA who can legitimately play point guard at 6-foot-7 like Ball,” wrote Givony in December.

5. Deni Avdija, G/F, Israel

With a booming draft stock this season, Avdija is a hot prospect that would be a smart pick for any team.

It’ll be an exciting draft to follow as March Madness fast approaches.
