3. Jordan Nwora, Small Forward

Current Team: Louisville Cardinals

Among the most polished prospects in the 2020 NBA Draft class on this list that Chicago Bulls fans should be following is the Louisville Cardinals junior wing Jordan Nwora. This All-American candidate Nwora is averaging 21.2 points per game, 7.5 rebounds, and 1.4 assists so far with the Cardinals this season.

Nwora’s age coming out of the college ranks is likely to be frowned upon once he declares for the NBA Draft. He’s 21-years-old at the moment, and will be 22 by the time the 2020-21 NBA regular season begins. That’s going to be on the older side of college prospects in this 2020 draft class. It won’t be the oldest age in this class on the wing, though.

Moreover, what fans should be paying attention to is the lack of refinement that Nwora will take compared with other wing prospects in this draft class. He’s a very good shooter, that’s having a career year in field goal and three-point percentages. Nwora is shooting better than 48 percent from the field and 41.4 percent from beyond the arc during his junior campaign.

Louisville is a true national title contender this season, and Nwora is the best player on the team. He’s got the intangibles and polished skill set that would be so valuable to make an immediate impact in a position of need for a team like the Bulls. This 6-foot-7 and 225 pound forward would plug that wing need right away.
