Tyler Herro. 149. Pick Analysis. Guard. 21. player. Scouting Report. Kentucky

With the need for shooting a very obvious one, Oklahoma City opts for Kentucky’s sharpshooter Tyler Herro. Adding some floor spacing for Russell Westbrook is key to getting OKC deeper in the playoffs, and Herro is the first step in this long process.

Pick Analysis. Arkansas. 22. player. Scouting Report. Forward/Center. Daniel Gafford. 18

After taking high-risk prospects with their first two picks, the Celtics wrap up their first round with a safer pick in Daniel Gafford. An old-school big, Gafford will likely never be a spot-up shooter or an elite NBA player. However, Boston can stash him as a bench piece going forward or package this pick for a big man from New Orleans.

23. Scouting Report. Stanford. K.Z. Okpala. player. 118. Pick Analysis. Forward

With no point guards worthy of the 23rd selection, the Jazz opt to take an interesting prospect in Stanford’s K.Z. Okpala. His 6ft 9 inch frame at the small forward position is incredibly promising paired with his ability to shoot from range. Okpala fills a need at small forward while the Jazz will look to acquire a point guard via free agency or trade.
