NBA Draft 2020: Who will go first overall?

November 18, 2020. Summarized by summa-bot.

Sure things are hard to come by. And the 2020 NBA Draft is no different.

Unlike in 2019 though, when Zion Williamson was a guaranteed first overall pick and Ja Morant a probable second-overall pick, there are no sure things in this year's NBA Draft.

Additionally, this year's draft class has the potential to break the record (five) for most players from Africa selected in one NBA Draft.

In addition to Edwards' potential, it is questionable whether the Wolves would select fellow prospect 7-foot-1-inch center James Wiseman, given Minnesota already has 6-foot-11-inch All-Star and 2015 first overall pick Karl-Anthony Towns.

Following the one-and-done model of attending one year of college before entering the NBA Draft, Wiseman -- the highest rated recruit coming out of high school in 2019 -- played only three games for Memphis during his sole year at the university.

Having reached the NBA Finals for five consecutive years between 2015 and 2019, winning three titles during that time, the Warriors had one of their worst seasons in memory in 2019-20.

Once teams have played their 72 regular season games -- a change from the usual 82 -- the teams with the seventh-highest through the tenth-highest winning percentages in each conference will face off for the two remaining spots for the NBA Playoffs.
