31. Bruno Fernando, C, Maryland

Bruno Fernando is very much an old-school center. He has the ability to protect the paint, rebound, and catch lobs at a very high level. His game outside of six feet is not anything to ride home about, and probably never will be. However, Fernando will likely end up being a first round or early second round selection.

Current NBA comparison: Clint Capela

32. Ty Jerome, G, UVA

Ty Jerome is the hustle guy every NBA team needs. A combo guard, Jerome is able to excel as both a primary ball handler and an off-ball guard. Jerome is also a scrappy defensive player, recording a cool 1.5 steals per game while helping lead UVA to a national title. Jerome is highly unlikely to become an NBA starter, but he could serve as a solid bench piece going forward for a team.

Current NBA comparison: Dejounte Murray

33. Eric Paschall, F, Villanova

An offensive-minded power forward, Eric Paschall provides a mix of size and strength that is special from the four spot, especially considering the fact that most modern players at the position are more perimeter-oriented and subsequently weaker.

His rebounding and inside scoring are impressive, but he can also score from outside as well at a decent mark for such a big guy. He is a subpar defender, but his offense will be attractive enough to land him in the late first or early second.

Current NBA comparison: Paul Millsap

34. Luka Samanic, F, Croatia

Luka Samanic is a very prototypical international forward- a player who can flat out space the floor. What makes Samanic different is his ability to slide from the small and power forward positions.

His defense is solid as well, but his motivation and motor are his biggest question marks going into the draft. He has all of the intangibles needed to be a successful NBA player, but his motor and athleticism will need to improve a bit to find NBA success.

Current NBA comparison: Nikola Mirotic

35. Louis King, F, Oregon

Oregon landed two top recruits in the high school class of 2018: Bol Bol and Louis King. Potentially a first-round value, King provides a solid mix of size and shooting at the small forward position. At 6-foot-9, he is able to shoot over most wings he plays against. His defense is poor considering his size and he could be more efficient in his overall scoring, but King is a sleeper to be a steal in this draft.

Current NBA comparison: Brandon Ingram
