6 of 7

19. Tristan da Silva, Colorado | Toronto Raptors

As the Toronto Raptors hope to reshape their roster around Scottie Barnes, Immanuel Quickley, and RJ Barrett, adding a versatile forward who can shoot the ball would provide them a huge boost. That’s what Tristan da Silva would do.

20. Kyshawn George, Miami | Cleveland Cavaliers

Kyshawn George could end up being one of the most impressive scorers in this draft class. Bringing in a 6-foot-7 dynamic scorer like George, who can also shoot the ball, would be perfect for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

21. TRADE | Jaylon Tyson, California | Detroit Pistons

From the earlier three-team trade with the Los Angeles Lakers, the Detroit Pistons would snag Jaylon Tyson here. His shot creator and versatility at 6-foot-5 would fit in nicely on the wing.

22. Baylor Scheierman, Creighton | Phoenix Suns

The Phoenix Suns need to figure out what the rest of their team looks like around their Big 3. Baylor Scheierman’s offensive creation and three-point shooting could act as a nice connective piece around them.

23. Kel’el Ware, Indiana | Milwaukee Bucks

If the Milwaukee Bucks want to improve their play on both ends of the floor, Kel’el Ware could be an impressive piece. He’s an athletic freak who would provide some versatile rim protection and a nice rim-runner on offense.

24. Zach Edey, Purdue | New York Knicks

This is a weird pick, but if the New York Knicks end up trading Mitchell Robinson this summer and roll with Isaiah Hartenstein as their lead center, adding Zach Edey wouldn’t be a terrible idea. He’s not versatile, but he has a huge body and would bang down low for New York.

25. Cam Spencer, UConn | New York Knicks

Cam Spencer screams New York Knicks. He works his butt off and had to grind to get to where he was at UConn. Spencer shoots the ball well and would give them a nice new look at the guard position.
