NBA draft: Dalen Terry, Patrick Baldwin Jr. and the players who could be the biggest sleepers

NEW YORK — Every NBA season there are a few players who completely outplay their draft stock and some who emerge as important pieces of a team two or three seasons in.

The Philadelphia 76ers selected Tyrese Maxey with the 21st pick in the 2020 NBA draft, and he solidified himself as a future piece to the franchise after a strong season and incredible playoff performance. In 2019, Grant Williams went 22nd to the Boston Celtics and is now the first one off the bench, logging 26 minutes per game during the playoffs. In the same draft class, the Golden State Warriors selected Jordan Poole with the 28th overall pick and in three short seasons, he's turning into a third Splash Brother alongside Klay Thompson and Steph Curry.
