2019 NBA Mock Draft: Zion Williamson To The Pelicans, Ja Morant Lands With The Grizzlies

By

Romeo Langford

11. Minnesota Timberwolves: Romeo Langford, G/F, Indiana

An injured thumb robbed Romeo Langford of his full arsenal this season, but he still put on a great as a freshman. At 6’6″ Langford has all the physical tools needed to be a successful wing scorer in the NBA. He’s an incredible finisher at the rim, a solid defender and his poor 3-point shooting should improve when his thumb has healed.

The Timberwolves want more punch on the perimeter and a young, polished scorer like Langford answers that need.

12. Charlotte Hornets: P.J. Washington, F, Kentucky

P.J. Washington was excellent during his sophomore season at Kentucky and established himself as a physical presence who can score from everywhere. He even mixed in shooting 42.3 percent from 3-point range this season.

The Hornets need help up front in the worst way and Washington would provide a versatile option there. He and Miles Bridges would be a really fun duo to watch.

13. Miami Heat: Nassir Little, F, North Carolina

Nassir Little is a ball of potential locked in a 6’6″ and 215-pound frame. He’s a classic wing player with a ridiculous level of athleticism and questionable feel for the game. But he’s a willing defender and his upside is incredible.

Justise Winslow hasn’t turned into a star and Tyler Johnson is gone. He might be frustrating while he develops, but the upside is too much to pass up here.

14. Boston Celtics (via Sacramento): Brandon Clarke, PF, Gonzaga

Brandon Clarke jumped up draft boards this year thanks to ridiculous shot-blocking ability and endless athleticism. The 6’8″ forward can also shoot it from deep.

Clarke would be yet another outstanding young piece for the Celtics, who could use a rim protector that can step into that role right away.

15. Detroit Pistons: Kevin Porter, G, USC

Kevin Porter can play either guard spot or even on the wing. At 6’6″ he’s got great size for a guy with his skill set. He can be a volume scorer and has tremendous upside. He’s a threat to score from anywhere on offense.

The Pistons need to upgrade both guard spots. Porter’s potential is too tantalizing to pass up here.
