By now, most of us are familiar with the “top two” of the upcoming NBA draft.
As a result, the draft will almost always have two or three players at the top of the first round.
The best case scenario is the player is selected in the top five, which is the scenario the NBA is most interested in, as opposed to the worst case scenario, where the player falls just outside the top 10.
To understand how this works, let’s take a look at the players projected to go in the first two rounds of the draft.
First up, the best case is a 6-foot-8 point guard named Emmanuel Mudiay.
While the 6-7 Mudiays overall athleticism is somewhat unheralded, his 6-11 wingspan and 10-foot, 9-inch wingspan give him the edge over the rest of the players.
He also has a solid rebounding ability that should make him a valuable role player on the defensive end, which the Blazers are in need of.
Mudiampay also has some unique traits that will allow him to thrive in the NBA.
He has a natural ability to get to the rim and make plays with the ball in his hands, which could help the Blazers in their quest to be a more balanced offensive team.
Mudjampay is also the type of player that can get to some of the best shooters in the league.
As mentioned, he has great range, but it’s what he brings to the table that will be most valuable.
The Blazers have also said that they want to add size to their bench, but the question remains if Mudiamps size will allow them to do so.
Another player who is considered a steal in this draft is Josh Hart, a 6’8 point forward from Oklahoma.
He’s the kind of player who can take the burden off of the point guard and give the Blazers a player like Hart.
Hart has the potential to be the next John Wall in terms of size and strength, but he also possesses some of his own unique attributes that could be even more valuable to the Blazers.
Hart also has great length and great shooting touch, which will help him make the most of his skills as a scorer and defender.
Hart is also an effective scorer in the half court and can shoot the 3, which makes him a great complement to Hart on the offensive end.
Finally, there’s another player that could help out the Blazers’ chances of landing a point guard in the upcoming lottery, as well as one who is more intriguing than the others.
The 6-6 forward from South Florida is known for his offensive prowess, and while he has a great motor and shot, he is also one of the most underrated players in the draft class.
His offensive versatility will allow the Blazers to get some bigs on the court without having to commit to a big man that’s just going to give the offense a headache.
As noted earlier, Hart also possesses an ability to score and be a defensive force, which he’ll have to help out on both ends of the floor.
In terms of pure athleticism, Hart has a unique combination of length, length, and wingspan.
He is one of those players that could have a career in the NFL, which would give him a huge opportunity to prove himself.
It’s not as if the Blazers will be taking a gamble with this pick.
They’re already a team that is focused on improving their depth, and that means taking a risk on a player that has potential to become a cornerstone of their team down the road.
If the Blazers decide to go this route, they’re going to need to take a risk.
Mudo, Hart, and Mudi will all be playing in the NCAA, so they could be left with very little chance of making the team in the pros.
If the Blazers were to take this route with the picks they have available, it would likely mean that Mudi is a first-round pick, Hart will be a second-rounder, and Hart will have to be traded to a team in order to land a spot on the team.
The draft is going to be deep, and it will be hard to find players that can help Portland in the near future.
If Mudi’s career in college is any indication, there are going to always be players that are better off sitting on the bench.
It will be up to the front office to make a decision about what they think Mudi can become in the future, and the Blazers could very well be in luck.
