12. Oklahoma City Thunder: Gradey Dick, SG, Kansas

Oklahoma City was up there with Sacramento for the two most surprising teams last season. The Thunder have a very young roster with loads of future draft picks. The future is bright in Oklahoma City, but for now, they need to address their biggest need: shooting. Gradey Dick is the best shooter in the draft but has more versatility than people realize. The 6’6″ guard can play multiple positions and possesses a playmaking ability that makes him much more than a sharpshooter.

13. Toronto Raptors: Jalen Hood-Schifino, PG, Indiana

The Toronto Raptors have many roster questions going into next season, but the need for a point guard remains the same. There are many point guard options for Toronto here, but the high upside of Jalen Hood-Schifino puts him ahead of the rest. The 6’4″ guard has a 6’10” wingspan and is an incredible two-way player with elite playmaking and scoring potential.

14. New Orleans Pelicans: Cason Wallace, CG, Kentucky

With rumors of the Pelicans looking to trade up into the top three to draft Scoot Henderson. If they do not get that deal done, they can go for an NBA-ready point guard in Cason Wallace, who would give flashbacks from when Jrue Holiday was in a Pelicans jersey. The 6’2″ guard possesses a versatile skillset of elite defense with playmaking and shooting upside.

15. Atlanta Hawks: Keyonte George, CG, Baylor

The Hawks have their starting backcourt in Trae Young and Dejounte Murray, but the duo of two true point guards has not worked out. Selecting Keyonte George here gives them backcourt depth with the potential for George to take the reigns of the starting shooting guard position eventually. George is an incredible offensive talent who can score from all three levels.
