The top 100 most-coveted NBA stars heading into the 2019 NBA draft
Posted On August 4, 2021
By Sam AmickESPN Staff Writer The top 10 NBA players are projected to be on the board at the 2019 NBADL draft in Cleveland, according to a report from ESPN Crikey.
The list of the top 10 players to be drafted by the NBADLE is as follows:Cody Zeller (Kansas), Aaron Gordon (Kentucky), Jahlil Okafor (Wisconsin), Frank Kaminsky (Washington), Jalen Brunson (Michigan), Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (Kentuckie), J.J. Redick (Washington State), Marcus Smart (Kansas) and Zach LaVine (Kansas).
There are three NBA teams that have not yet been announced as they will take on a top-two pick in the 2019 draft, but we do have a strong possibility of one of the three teams picking in the top five.
The Cavs are set to pick second, which would mean that the Cavaliers would take the top overall pick.
The Nets have the No. 5 pick and the Celtics the No 3 pick, but the Cavs could go into a tie with the Bulls at No. 6.
The Bulls are the only team that has yet to be announced.
There is no indication that either team will take a top overall player, but if there is a tie, it could result in the Nets taking a first round pick from the Bulls, and the Cavs taking a second round pick.
There are a number of reasons that the Nets could be in a tie for the No 2 pick.
First, the Nets are expected to draft at least one forward in the first round, which is something that the Cavs cannot realistically do.
They are in the market for some big men, but they could also be looking for a second-round pick or a prospect that could help them in the future.
Second, there are many prospects that are in their second year of their college careers and could be able to play in Brooklyn.
Third, the team that the player was drafted by could also move up a round to the No 1 pick to select that player.
The Nets have a lot of upside at this point, but their current draft is just too low for them to take a player at No 2 overall.
The NBA is set to draft its top 100 players for the 2019 season.
