A fresh look at the 2020 NBA Draft class.
The 2020 NBA Draft is officially scheduled for October 16, which accounts for the protracted NBA season in Orlando. It does help to have a date marked on the calendar, but the murkiness around the pre-draft process still exists. Teams are largely in the dark due to coronavirus.
An obvious side effect of this pandemic will be a greater reliance on game tape, as opposed to individual workouts and interviews. That could lead NBA scouts to align more with draftniks from the media, who draw opinions from the same games on TV (and, in some cases, the same NBA intel). The ratio of hits to misses in this year’s draft is worth monitoring.
For this big board, I have expanded my analysis to include the top 50 prospects. This is, of course, not a mock draft. This board takes into account the landscape of NBA basketball as a whole and the context that provides. It does not take into account team-specific needs.
