A player that could continue to see his stock take a steady uptick ahead of the 2020 NBA Draft is the Colorado Buffaloes standout junior small forward Tyler Bey. The breakthroughs that Bey made during his junior season highlighted how good of a player he has become. Bey averaged more than 13 points per game, nine rebounds, and 1.5 assists, while shooting 53 percent from the field and 41.9 percent from beyond the arc.

Transforming his game to become essentially the best on-ball defender, shot creator, and rebounding forward for Colorado shows how good he can be at the next level.

There could be an even bigger rise on draft boards just over the horizon for the DePaul Blue Demons junior big man Paul Reed. This 6-foot-10 and 220 pound forward does well on both ends of the floor and is a natural scorer from almost anywhere within the two-point line. Reed could continue to improve his jump shot, but he’s a good scorer nonetheless.

Reed really is a force to be reckoned with on the defensive end of the floor, with an insane 9.7 percent block rate and one of the better defensive box plus/minus ratings in the entire country of 8.2.

Lack of maturity and versatility in the game and decision making of the former Duke freshman sensation center Vernon Carey Jr. could hold him back from going as a lottery pick in the 2020 NBA Draft. Carey Jr. doesn’t have much of an outside game, and he’s not going to beat really anyone off the dribble.

He’s a big man that tends to stay in the paint. But he’s bouncy enough and a good enough rim protector to excel in most areas of his game that he would need to as more of an old school center.
