14. P.J. Washington, F, Kentucky

After wisely deciding to stay another year in Lexington, P.J. Washington has established himself as a mid-first round prospect. His scoring and rebounding along with an improved three point shot make him a nice offensive-minded four. His defense is decent as well, but nothing to ride home about.

Current NBA comparison: Paul Millsap

15. Kevin Porter Jr., G, USC

Once thought to be a top-five pick in this year’s draft, Kevin Porter Jr. will now be lucky to be a lottery selection. His ability to score in volume is very evident, as he can do so from all three levels. He also shows promise as a defender. Questions with his consistency and effort level may keep some teams away, but he could come away as a major steal.

Current NBA comparison: J.R. Smith

16. Jaxson Hayes, C, Texas

Jaxson Hayes is the type of center the NBA is moving towards- a shot blocker who plays above the rim. Hayes is not likely to ever give you any sort of volume scoring, but he can excel as a pick and roll player, lob catcher, and a rim protector. He is praised for his high ceiling, but his weak rebounding and scoring abilities may hinder him.

Current NBA comparison: Jarrett Allen

17. Romeo Langford, G, Indiana

Another highly-regarded high school product, the one-and-done Romeo Langford is a pure scorer. His mid range shot is among the best in the draft, and his finishing ability is also well above average. His three point shooting and defense are a bit concerning, but his nice mid range stroke gives scouts the sense that he can develop into an outside threat.

Current NBA comparison: DeMar DeRozen

18. Keldon Johnson, G, Kentucky

Keldon Johnson had a very streaky freshman season at Kentucky. Regarded as a sharpshooting scorer, Johnson has a scorers mindset at all times. This can backfire on him at times, as he is regarded as a very streaky player. Johnson also has nice size and rebounding abilities at the two, but could improve as a passer. Perhaps his biggest weakness is his defensive instincts.

Current NBA comparison: Gary Harris

19. Goga Bitadze, C, Georgia (International)

Rising higher and higher on draft boards of late, Goga Bitadze is appearing to be a lock somewhere in the first round, especially since there is an extreme lack of centers in this class. Bitadze was viewed as an old-school, back to the bucket center, but has begun to improve his game to include a decent jumper. His biggest downfall, perhaps, is his lack of athleticism.

Current NBA comparison: Jursuf Nurkic
