He can do something immediately.”

2. Oklahoma City Thunder—Chet Holmgren, F/C, Gonzaga

Locked on Thunder host Rylan Stiles: “Chet Holmgren is a 7-foot-tall man who is an elite shot blocker but can also handle the ball and play for his teammates… He has yet to grow into his frame, but Thunder’s development program can get him straight to NBA.” -Level.

5. Detroit Pistons – Shaedon Sharpe, G, Kentucky

I think he can be an instant impact player for the Kings, maybe a day one starter. He fits in well with what the Kings are trying to do. They were looking for someone to fit in the front seat alongside Domantas Sabonis, who can clear the ground and help on defence. Keegan Murray does both.”

8. Pelicans of New Orleans – Jeremy Sochan, F, Baylor

Incredible height at 6’9 and a 7′ wingspan, he has great lateral quickness, allowing him to defend all five positions. Offensively, he’s a good secondary playmaker who plays accurate and decisive passes.”

9. San Antonio Spurs – Jalen Duren, F/C, Memphis

Locked On Spurs presenter Jeff Garcia: “The decision was pretty easy for me. The Spurs need size up front. Duren is a tall, NBA fit physique, rim guards, can walk, he’s athletic. He’s only 19 and fits in well with the timeline for Spurs’ rebuilding.”

Locked On Wizards host Ed Oliver: “He can shoot out lights and get hot. He’s got a wide base but can really catch and shoot and nail the dribble. ACC All-Freshman. The Wizards need to be shot. AJ Griffin shouldn’t be there on pick 10. If he is it, the magicians have to run to the podium.”
