16. Portland Trail Blazers — Aaron Nesmith, F, Vanderbilt

The level of efficiency Aaron Nesmith displayed in catch-and-shoot situations was highly impressive last season. The Trail Blazers need to surround Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum with as much shooting on the wing as possible, so this would be a helpful pick.

Odds for No. 1 Pick (via DraftKings): +20000

17. Minnesota Timberwolves — Saddiq Bey, F, Villanova

For a team that has struggled to find reliable shooting on the wing, the Timberwolves should emphasize finding a prospect that can get it done with the No. 17 pick. Going with Saddiq Bey would accomplish precisely this at a high-level.

18. Dallas Mavericks — Josh Green, G, Arizona

There is a real need for the Mavericks to emphasize the defensive side of the ball this offseason. However, it’s important to not have non-shooting threats on the floor as that reduces the ceiling of the group around Luka Doncic. Going with Josh Green would be a logical choice.

19. Brooklyn Nets — Jaden McDaniels, F, Washington

The Nets will be in no hurry to get any rookies on the court with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving looking to contend. Going with upside is the right move here and Jaden McDaniels has plenty of it. He has a defensive versatility along with intriguing shooting ability.

Odds for No. 1 Pick (via DraftKings): +20000

20. Miami Heat — Tyrese Maxey, G, Kentucky

There seems to be a split in the perception of Tyrese Maxey. He lacks size for a shooting guard and doesn’t have the most reliable of jump shot at this stage of his career. However, he’s crafty at getting to the rim with energy on defense. He could work fit in with Heat culture.

Odds for No. 1 Pick (via DraftKings): +10000
