DraftSite's comments: Simmons is a perfect fit for a Philadelphia team that needs some instant offense. His attitude may drop him a spot though.

DraftSite's comments: Ingram, Russell, and Randle gives you a nice young core to build on. Add in a likely resigned Jordan Clarkson and a good young coach in Luke Walton, and they may be two years away from contending for that 8th spot.

  • Scouting Report

    At 6-foot-9½ with the standing reach of an NBA center, an excellent handle, the fluidity of a guard and the stroke of a sharpshooter, the Durant comparisons look less and less ludicrous...

DraftSite's comments: Hield has the attitude that would work perfectly for the Celtics, but they are already guard heavy with Isaiah Thomas, Avery Bradley, Marcus Smart, and Terry Rozier. Jaylen Brown could fit in at small forward, although Jae Crowder is their heart and soul. Bender might be their best option as they can afford to let a foreigner marinate before needing him.

DraftSite's comments: Phoenix needed the #3 pick so they could control their destiny in the second tier but with Knight, Bledsoe, and Booker, another young guard would be overkill. Getting another forward to either push or replace T.J. Warren would be the only way to go.

DraftSite's comments: Minnesota just needs another year of maturity, rather than another draft pick. No one necessarily makes perfect sense here so getting the best, young player on their board is probably the best bet.

DraftSite's comments: New Orleans wanted Jrue Holiday to be their point guard of the future, but after two years, they may be ready to go in another direction.

DraftSite's comments: Denver is another roster stocked with youngin's so getting a winner like Hield who will force teammates to compete in practice, is the best medicine for this team.

DraftSite's comments: Sacramento's situation won't be cleared up until after free agency, but either way they really need solid depth at guard. At the same time, Cousins is such a question mark that they may want insurance in case they have to trade him. Getting Arvydas' son would be a start.

DraftSite's comments: If Deyonta Davis can learn to score in a short period of time, he might fit in perfectly to that Toronto roster.

DraftSite's comments: If they continue to start Aaron Gordon at power forward, then Orlando really doesn't have a lot of needs. So it would be hard to ignore a productive senior who averaged 18/7.5/7.8 that could help bring a more mature, winning attitude to the team.

DraftSite's comments: They have their starting core locked up for a few years in Drummond, Harris, Reggie, KCP, and Marcus Morris, with Stanley Johnson chomping at the bits. So getting a guard who could mix in at PG and SG, would be perfect.
