Most Likely to go at 3
The first pick is most likely gonna be Markelle Fultz, but so far the Lakers pick isn't solid and neither is the 76ers, so who will go number 3?
Lonzo Ball: I know a large majority of people do not enjoy Lonzo Ball's dad or his shoes, but none of that changes how good of a player he is. At a large position of need for us it is a no brainer to select a point guard who can play off of Ben Simmons as well as control the floor.
Josh Jackson: Josh Jackson is easily one of my favorite players in this draft, as most of you know I love a good defensive player and that's exactly what Jackson can do. Although he has issues off the court he has stated that he is willing to go into therapy in some form to help him. His main issue is his shot but everything else about him is great, great awareness, versatile (can line up/defend 4 of the 5 positions) and is great on the drive. A very solid possible pick
Jayson Tatum: My personal least favorite of the options. As an odd comparison I would compare him to Jahlil Okafor coming out of the draft, yes I know Tatum isn't a center. But both Jahlil and Tatum were effective offensively from only one area on the court, bad defensively and even though they were tall they weren't as athletic as they could be. Even with these flaws it doesn't negate his skill at the mid-range or his frame, both of which can be built around.
De'Aaron Fox: One day he's the best point guard in the draft, the next he's the 4th. While the opinions on his game don't always line up, it doesn't mean he's a bad player. A solid point guard isn't necessarily a need when they can't spread defenders thin, but after watching his tape I noticed that his problem with his shooting comes from his form consistency, not from aim. With his agility and floor awareness plus a potential outside shot he could be deadly for years and worth the 3rd overall pick
Dennis Smith Jr: By far the fan favorite point guard for the Sixers, Smith could offer a lot. Apparently a lot of teams like him in the 5-7 range but knowing Bryan Colangelo anything is possible. Solid fit for Brett Browns offense
