NBA Draft Boom Or Bust Selections


Eastern Conference – Jordan

Unknown-1Atlanta Hawks

Boom- PG, Trey Young, Oklahoma. I really want to say bust, however he has star potential.

Bust-  SG, Kevin Huerter, Maryland. I just don’t see him being more then a 6.5 ppg player.

Unknown-2 Boston Celtics

Boom-  C, Robert Williams, Texas A&M. Big time rim protector, should not have fell to 27.

Bust-  None.

Unknown-3Brooklyn Nets

Boom- SF, Dzanan Musa, Croatia. I believe he will be a reliable shooter in the league for years to come.

Bust- None.

Boom- PG, Devonte Graham, Kansas. With Kemba’s departure looming and Tony Parker’s mentorship, this kid could be a stud.

Bust- SF, Arnoldas Kulboka, Italy. I think he will be another 2nd rounder that gets lost in the wind.

Unknown-4 Chicago Bulls

Boom-  C, Wendell Carter Jr, Duke. He may be the best big in this draft.

Bust-  SF, Chandler Hutchison, Boise State. I don’t trust the Bulls with wing players, and don’t believe he will be consistent enough in the league.

Boom- PG, Collin Sexton, Alabama. Young bull will be just that.

Bust-  None.

Unknown-5.pngDetroit Pistons

Boom-  SG, Bruce Brown, Miami. I think he could be a valuable bench player.

Bust- None.

Unknown-6.png  Indiana Pacers

Boom-  PG, Aaron Holiday, UCLA. I think he will be better then Justin, but not as good as Jrue. Still solid. 82 Overall in 2k.

Bust- PF, Alize Johnson, Missouri State. I don’t envision him really panning out.

Unknown-7Miami Heat

Boom- None. (No picks in the draft)

Bust- None.   (No picks in the draft)

Unknown-8.png Milwaukee Bucks

Boom- SG, Donte DiVincenzo, Villanova. Effective, athletic sharpshooter.

Bust- None.

Boom- SF, Kevin Knox, Kentucky. As soon as the fans started booing, his All Star birth was confirmed.

Bust– None.

Unknown-9.png Orlando Magic

Boom- C, Mo Bamba, Texas. I mean the guy had a song made about him before he even got drafted. If thats not fire I don’t know what is.

Bust- SF, Melvin Frazier, Tulane. I’m not a fan, he can’t really score. I feel like his 2k ceiling is like a 70.

Unknown-10.pngPhiladelphia 76ers

Boom- SG, Zhaire Smith, Texas Tech. Not only will he be impactful, they acquired a future first rounder (Miami Heat 2021 ) from the Suns.

Bust– None.

toronto-raptors-logo-transparent.png Toronto Raptors

Boom- None.  (No picks in the draft)

Bust-   None.   (No picks in the draft)

Unknown-11.png Washington Wizards

Boom- SG, Troy Brown, Oregon. I don’t think he will be great, but he won’t be a total bust.

Bust- PG, Issuf Sanon, Slovenia. Late 2nd rounder, my expectations are very low.

wc.gifWestern Conference – Dylan

ujUtah Jazz

Boom – SG, Grayson Allen, Duke. The only problem with Allen is his attitude. As long as he works on his attitude, he has a bright future in the NBA.

Bust – None. The player Utah selected in the second round was traded to the Houston Rockets.

Boom – C, Moritz Wagner, Michigan. Wagner is great in the paint and is gonna be a key factor in the rebounding stat line for L.A.

Bust – None.

spurs.pngSan Antonio Spurs

Boom – SG, Lonnie Walker IV, Miami. Lonnie Walker honestly should’ve been drafted earlier than pick 18, but this was a real steal for San Antonio. Walker has potential to be rookie of the year.

Bust – None.

roHouston Rockets

Boom – PG, De’Anthony Melton, USC. Melton is a great Point Guard and will do well behind Chris Paul.

Bust – None. (No pick in the first round)

cLos Angeles Clippers

Boom – PG, Shai Gilgeous- Alexander. He has great size for a point guard that plays great defense. Trading for him was a great move by the Clippers.

Bust – PG, Jerome Robinson, Boston College. Robinson has potential, but I simply just don’t think he is going to fit in well on the Clippers offense.

w.pngGolden State Warriors

Boom – SF, Jacob Evans, Cincinnati. Evans is a great two way player that has the potential to be a key role player for the Warriors.

Bust – None. (No second round pick)

Oklahoma-City-Thunder-Logo.pngOklahoma City Thunder

Boom – None. (I think the player that OKC drafted will just be average, I don’t see him being a boom or a bust.)

Bust – None. (I think the player that OKC drafted will just be average, I don’t see him being a boom or a bust.)

Nuggets-Logo-Square Denver Nuggets

Boom –  C, Thomas Welsh, UCLA. Welsh is a threat at midrange and is great at spacing the floor.

Bust – PF, Michael Porter Jr, Missouri. I’m making a real bold move here saying Porter will be a bust, but his injuries have been a big factor to his career and I have a feeling that is going to continue.

d.gifDallas Mavericks

Boom – PG, Luka Doncic, Real Madrid. Doncic is a good playmaker with a great skillset. He is going to do great in Dallas and has a lot of veterans around him to help him improve his game.

Bust – PF, Ray Spalding, Louisville. I’m not buying into the hype surrounding Spalding.

m.pngMinnesota Timberwolves

Boom – SG, Josh Okogie, Georgia Tech. Okogie is a great guard that is versatile on both sides of the court and has great athleticism. He playing great right now in the summer league.

Bust –  None.

Boom – None. (I think the player that Portland drafted will just be average, I don’t see him being a boom or a bust.)

Bust – None. (I think the player that Portland drafted will just be average, I don’t see him being a boom or a bust.)

Logo Memphis Grizzlies.pngMemphis Grizzlies

Boom – PF, Jaren Jackson Jr, Michigan State. Jackson is almost seven feet tall but is a great jump shooter and has fantastic defense.

Bust – None.

sacramento_kings_logoSacramento Kings

Boom – Marvin Bagley III. Bagley is a gifted scorer and has very good rebounding skills as he averaged 11.1 in his last year of college.

Bust – None.

ps.gifPhoenix Suns

Boom – C, Deandre Ayton, Arizona. What is he not good at? Ayton was a top three prospect heading into this years draft and this was a great choice by Phoenix, he has a bright future ahead of him.

Bust – SG, George King, Colorado. King is a good player, but I don’t think he’s going to be as good as people think.
