25. Los Angeles Clippers: Brice Johnson (PF-North Carolina)
- 21 yrs.
- 6’9″, 230 lbs.
Brice Johnson will be limited offensively in the NBA, but the Clippers won’t need any offense from him. If he can do what he did best at North Carolina, rebound and run on the fast break, he will fit perfectly in Los Angles.
26. Toronto Raptors: Damian Jones (C-Vanderbilt)
- 20 yrs.
- 6’11”, 248 lbs.
Damian Jones will slip in the draft and may not even end up in the first round, due to being a causality of the new trend of draft and stash players at the end of the first round.
Jones has the potential to be a very good defensive player, but the fact that he only attempted 8 three-pointers in his college career will hurt him.
The Raptors can afford to take a flyer on him in the hopes that he can provide some defensive help behind Jonas Valanciunas.
27. Philadelphia 76ers (via Thunder) : Isaia Cordinier (SG-France)
- 19 yrs.
- 6’5″, 190 lbs.
Draft and stash! In all seriousness, there’s no way this kid will be in the league in 2016-17 but someone will definitely want his draft rights.
When Cordinier gets to the NBA at some point he’s going to make one GM look very smart.
