We’ve gone from the biggest no-brainer for No. 1 in almost 20 years (Zion Williamson) to a more wide-open chase. I’m going to stick with Anthony Edwards here because I think Minnesota has a decent chance of trading the pick, and the team that tries to get up to No. 1 might do so for the upside of Edwards and Edwards only. He’s the only prospect in this draft worth trading up for; I’m just not seeing the enticement with LaMelo Ball, James Wiseman or Obi Toppin. Edwards, who played on a bad team but put up solid numbers (50% 2-point shooting in addition to the averages above) projects as a reliable scorer at the next level. There is a belief that he was actually

Bulls NBA Draft Board: Breaking down potential targets at No. 4

The Bulls saw a stroke of lottery fortune favor them Thursday night, when they cashed in 8.5 percent odds to jump from their No. 7 pre-lottery slot to the No. 4 overall pick.

“I don’t think you address needs at the 4. You get the best talent,” Karnišovas said in a post-lottery conference call. “That’s what we’re going to be looking for with the highest upside player.”

In past comments, Karnišovas has also described his preferred style of play as being high-paced, ball-movement-oriented and read-and-react-styled.

With all that in mind — but without

With the lottery drawing complete, we now know the full order of the 2020 NBA Draft, scheduled to take place virtually on October 16. This is one of those rare years where there is very little certainly at the top of the draft board.

1. Minnesota Timberwolves: Anthony Edwards, SG, Georgia – Freshman

Edwards was the highest-scoring freshman in the country, averaging 19.5 points per game, and also led Georgia in made 3-pointers (2.3) and steals (1.4). While he wasn’t nearly as efficient as many scouts would have liked (converting less than 41% of his FG attempts and 30% of his 3-point attempts), he frequently flashed the type of
