The exact date for the 2020 NBA Draft is unclear, but the delay can only exacerbate the excitement once the event finally arrives.

The league recently decided to postpone the June project, possibly push him away to August or September. The lottery, which usually takes place in May, and the project combine will also be delayed.

Speculation, however, need not stop.

Based on individual performance and in-season reports, we still have a decent perception of the prospects for the first round. Some players will rise and others will fall, but many of the names in this mock-up will be selected during the 2020 draft.

James Wiseman, C, Memphis

Should the Detroit Pistons swing for a potential goalkeeper or just catch the best player available in any position?

Both routes are reasonable, but Detroit sent Andre Drummond to the Cleveland Cavaliers by the trade deadline and could use more depth in the center. James Wiseman could create an enticing rotation with Blake Griffin and Christian Wood in the first zone.

Wiseman has only made three appearances before an NCAA violationan irrelevant regarding his futureand an average of 19.7 points out of 76.9 percent shooting. He recovered 10.7 rebounds and also struck three strokes per game.

One potential problem, for sure, is the Golden State Warriors’ reported interest in Wiseman. According to B’R’s Ric Bucher, a league source said Wiseman was at the top of their scorecard.

The problem is the two conclusionsa real intrigue or a smoke screen-are plausible. The Warriors are exceptionally thin at the front, and Wiseman would be an ideal fit. At the same time, they may be more interested in Georgia goalkeeper Anthony Edwards and may seek to divert attention in case they don’t choose number one.

Although this simulation leans toward the latter, the delayed pre-carry-over process will provide some important answers.

Behind the Warriors in the standings are the Cavaliers, the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Atlanta Hawks. Since these lists have Drummond, Karl-Anthony Towns and Clint Capela, respectively, interest in Wiseman would be low.

Detroit has a 42.5 percent chance in a top four selection, by Tankathon. And if there isn’t a massive increase in a team outside the top five, the possibility of selecting Wiseman is even higher.

R.J. Hampton, G, New Zealand Breakers

A franchise hoping for a surprise rise in the top four is the Portland Trail Blazers. If the regular season does not resume, Portland will be ranked last in the lottery.

Certainly, the Blazers are more likely to stay put. In fact, call it a 97.6 percent luck.

Still, it doesn’t hurt to dream, right?

Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum play more than 36 minutes per game, but no one in the backcourt even averages two assists. Portland needs another playmaker to complete the duo.

While the project is focused on upside, R.J. Hampton’s appeal is particularly focused on potential. He gave up the traditional route for an American perspective, spending a year at the university to go to Australasia alongside LaMelo Ball.

Hampton hasn’t had an outstanding experience with the New Zealand Breakers of the NBL, scoring 8.8 points per game while shooting 29.5 percent over three. He had 3.9 rebounds and 2.4 assists as well.

“But between his transition and his stab, his ability to shoot and his side play, Hampton is physically and fundamentally well balanced for a 19-year-old player,” said NBA expert B / R. , Jonathan Wasserman, said.

Hampton is # 12 on Wasserman’s last large painting.
