Nba create your own mock draft
He can legitimately become a point guard at the next level as he shows tremendous creativity, vision and the ability to create offense for teammates.There are still some areas of his game that he needs to work on, namely consistency.Unlike a number of other top prospects, he actually played the entire season, and benefited by developing with close to a full year of games.Interesting, Edwards two favorite players happen to be the two that he compares most closely to in Wade and Victor Oladipo.Why the Timberwolves take Anthony Edwards: There is still a lot of speculation that the T-Wolves will move this pick and add a veteran(s) to go along with their young combo of Towns and DLo.
But the trade options do not appear to be as substantial as they once had hoped.The team is said to be high on Lamelo Ball, however his ability to fit into a struggling defensive team and alongside a ball dominant guard like Russell is highly questionable.Edwards makes the most sense, especially for a struggling franchise that must recruit their own players to stick around and sign long term deals.Edwards fits on more levels than Ball, despite the fact that Ball arguable possesses more long term potential in todays league due to his pick and role acumen.NBA Comparison: Dwyane Wade.Golden State Warriors, laMelo Ball.
Ball is one of the biggest wildcards and mysteries in this years draft.Hes a talent, with one of the highest ceilings of any player available.But the fact that he decided to play in New Zealand and missed a good portion of the season, not to mention the the level of competition, makes him a tough prospect to evaluate.So a team will have to take a bit of a leap of faith with Ball considering he has less of a proven track record than other prospects available.But his ability to facilitate and run an offense as a 6-7 point guard gives him a great deal of intrigue.
Unlike his brother Lonzo, LaMelo has a more conventional shooting form.But its not exactly conventional, just more so than Lonzos.Hes a more outgoing, vocal player, which should also give him a leg up in transitioning to the league.
