Article Summary:

  • Potential guard fits: Jaden Springer, Jared Butler, Miles McBride
  • Potential big fits: Isaiah Jackson, Day’Ron Sharpe, Jericho Sims

Boston Celtics

  • Draft picks owned: 45
  • Needs: Point guard, wing depth

The Celtics don’t have a first-round pick in the draft, but that doesn’t mean they can’t trade up if they feel the value is there for one of the prospects they’ve targeted.

  • Potential wing fits: Aaron Henry, Isaiah Livers, Aaron Wiggins
  • Potential center fits: Sandro Mamukelashvili, Jericho Sims, Neemias Queta

Milwaukee Bucks

  • Draft picks owned: 31
  • Needs: Backup point guard, wing depth

The Bucks traded away their first-round pick, but they end up with No. 31, which is literally as close to the first round as it gets.

  • Potential point guard fits: Miles McBride, Tre Mann, Nah’Shon Hyland
  • Potential wing fits: Herbert Jones, Kessler Edwards, B.J. Boston

Minnesota Timberwolves

  • Draft picks owned: None
  • Needs: Wing/frontcourt depth, defense

The Timberwolves don’t have a draft pick, but they could make a move to grab a pick if they see someone falling who is high on their board.

  • Potential center fits: Kai Jones, Isaiah Jackson, Day’Ron Sharpe
  • Potential guard fits: Sharife Cooper, Nah’Shon Hyland, Tre Mann

Portland Trail Blazers

  • Draft picks owned: None
  • Needs: Defense, wing depth

Another team whose needs could drastically change depending on whether they make a trade, the Blazers have no draft picks – which would almost certainly change if they move Damian Lillard before the draft.
