10. Dejounte Murray, Point Guard

Team: Milwaukee Bucks

Original Draft Slot: 29

This deep class of guards continues to fall off the board later among the lottery picks in this re-draft. Next up is the former Washington Huskies 6-foot-4 and 170 pound point guard Dejounte Murray. A depth need at point guard in the current season for the Bucks could be helped by re-drafting Murray.

Murray was a good pick for the San Antonio Spurs at No. 29 overall originally in the 2016 NBA Draft. But Murray has yet to take the steps forward that the Spurs were hoping for on the offensive end of the floor. He’s averaging 10.3 points per game, 6.0 rebounds, and 4.2 assists, this season.

The Bucks would be hoping that they could give Murray a better supporting cast so that he could fill out better on the offensive end.

11. Caris LeVert, Shooting Guard

Team: Oklahoma City Thunder

Original Draft Slot: 20

The Thunder are at a confusing point. It looked like they were rebuilding at the beginning of the regular season, after a big trade involving veteran point guards Chris Paul and Russell Westbrook that saw Oklahoma City and the Houston Rockets swap stars. But the Thunder are on a roll right now and reached their first .500 mark of the regular season on Dec. 22 with a win over the Los Angeles Clippers.

However, the Thunder try to add guard depth to this rebuild in this re-draft by bringing in the former Michigan Wolverines shooting guard Caris LeVert. As the original No. 20 overall pick in the first round of the Brooklyn Nets, LeVert was a good value pick. But his floor spacing and ball handling abilities make him a good fit with the Thunder.
