10. Donte DiVincenzo, SG
Prior to getting injured in the Milwaukee Bucks championship run in the 2021 playoffs, Donte DiVincenzo was up-and-coming role player. However, the 25-year-old was since traded to the Sacramento Kings and has struggled to shoot the ball this past season. The 6-foot-4 shooting guard still has upside and will get paid by someone in free agency.
9. Mohamed Bamba, C
With the Magic having the first overall pick, the short-lived era of Mohamed Bamba appears to be over. Bamba has struggled with consistency during his career, but he has the potential at 24-years-old to be a stretch-five standing at 7-feet tall. He should garner interest from other teams. He would be a nice backup on the Philadelphia 76ers if they could convince him to take less to come there.
8. Marvin Bagley III, PF/C
Marvin Bagley III will always be known as the guy the Sacramento Kings choose over Luka Doncic. His tenure in Sacramento was less than stellar despite his potential on offense standing at 6-foot-11. The 23-year-old appears to have found a home with the Detriot Pistons after being traded there mid-season. Don’t be surprised if he returns there as a restricted free agent.
“If the Philadelphia 76ers can open up their mid-level exception, then landing Lonnie Walker IV could be an option.”
7. Lonnie Walker IV, SG
If the Philadelphia 76ers can open up their mid-level exception, then landing Lonnie Walker IV could be possible. The 23-year-old shooting guard has developed into a solid two-way player with the San Antonio Spurs, but with so many young guards on the roster, the 6-foot-4 wing could look elsewhere for a bigger role and a nice payday.
6. Nic Claxton, C/PF
Despite the Brooklyn Nets being over the salary cap already, they should try everything in their power to retain 6-foot-11 big man Nic Claxton. The 23-year-old is the team’s second best defender and depending on what happens with Andre Drummond, the best center on the roster.
