26. Daniel Gafford, C, Arkansas

A typical old-school big, Daniel Gafford is a gritty rebounder and defender who can find a role on an NBA bench doing the dirty work inside and playing above the rim. He will likely never be an NBA starter, but his specialties could prove valuable in certain situations.

Current NBA comparison: Clint Capela

27. Naz Reid, F/C, LSU

Another back to the bucket center, Naz Reid of LSU has the tools to be a high-level rim protector and rebounder, despite the fact that his defensive numbers were subpar as a Tiger in 2019-2020. As a former top high school prospect, he could become a late round steal if he develops more of an offensive game.

Current NBA comparison: Brook Lopez

28. Carsen Edwards, G, Purdue

Looking at his numbers, Carsen Edwards is a true volume scorer with lots of range. A very inconsistent shooter and an undersized guard, Edwards may be a bit too trigger happy for the liking of some NBA teams. However, his ability to put the ball in the bucket makes him a commodity that will be hard to pass on late in the first and early in the second.

29. Matisse Thybulle, G, Washington

Matisse Thybulle is the best perimeter defender in this class, and it’s not even close. His steal and block totals are absolutely outrageous, not to mention his ability to defend off the ball. His offensive game is non-existent, and may never be anything. However, his defense could land him as a late first rounder or early second rounder.

Current NBA comparison: Patrick Beverly

30. Luguentz Dort, G, ASU

Luguentz Dort could end up being a solid two-way player in the NBA. His ability to get to the cup and play solid defense will earn him a first round bid, but he will need to improve many aspects of his game in the meantime.

Current NBA comparison: Lance Stephenson
