The 2020 NBA Draft is still a little ways off, but we have our first NBA Mock Draft with James Wiseman going to the Golden State Warriors with the number one draft pick. Cole Anthony of North Carolina has returned from injury, but will he still be a top-five pick one this year’s draft? LaMelo Ball has made a name for himself playing in New Zealand, and in this mock draft, Jimmy Crowther has him going to the New York Knicks' with the fifth overall pick. This 2020 NBA Draft Class is not as stacked as the 2019 Draft with names like Zion Williamson and Ja Morant, but many consider this to be a deeper draft with bigger names expected to still be around in the early 20’s through the second round.

Tyrese Maxey of Kentucky is another amazing freshman in this draft class and could find himself as a lottery pick in this years NBA Draft. Scottie Lewis of Florida hasn’t had an outstanding season, but Jimmy likes him enough to give him a first-round grade. RJ Hampton decided not to go to college and went overseas to play. He had a decent season in Australia, but suffered an injury and decided to return back to the states to train for the NBA Draft. Will he still be a top 10 pick like he was projected to be?
