Picks 6-10

6. Chicago-Coby White-G-North Carolina-Bulls are in a weird position here and Coby White‘s name has risen through the process, and offers a complementary game to the players on the roster, it feels a bit high to me, but he fills a need, and less risk than a Darius Garland who missed the majority of the year at Vandy because of injury, or Cam Reddish who looked overwhelmed at times at Duke.

7. Washington-Darius Garland-PG-Vanderbilt– With John Wall out with an torn achilles. The Wizards take a player who, if healthy, and he should be, steps in right away for the Wizards.

8. Memphis-Brandon Clark-F-GonzagaBrandon Clarke as a rim runner, and shot blocker next to Jaren Jackson Jr, fits the grit and grind Grizzlies style.

9. Atlanta-Sekou Dombouya-F-Limoges-Hawks keep the 2nd one with the Mavs position failing to improve on lottery night. Culver is a sure thing, Sekou Dombouya is not, but he has the tools, if developed to be a top player in this draft a few years down the road.

10. Minnesota-Cam Reddish-G-Duke-Wolves end the slide for Cam Reddish. If he’s more aggressive, he can reach his ceiling. He may be more a 3-and-D player for the Wolves, as a kick out piece for KAT.
