The aforementioned talented young core of Florida State is bound to have a profound impact on the 2020 NBA Draft. The Noles could have their highest selected player go in the lottery range, and sophomore 6-foot-6 shooting guard Devin Vassell is a good candidate to go there.

Showing massive improvement since his true freshman campaign, Vassell could be that solid two-way wing that so many NBA teams desire nowadays. He averaged 12.7 points per game, 5.1 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.4 steals, and one block while shooting 49 percent from the field and 41.5 percent from beyond the arc.

The limitations in the game of the Duke star sophomore point guard Tre Jones are well-known up to this point. Jones is a great defender, and a veteran facilitator that could make an immediate impact on those departments at the next level. The problem in Jones’ game is his lack of an outside shooting game and the athleticism needed to keep up with the top level guards on the perimeter.

Jones should have a lower ceiling in the NBA, but a very high floor that is comparable to his brother and fellow point guard Tyus Jones.

Next up on the international prospect board for the 2020 NBA Draft is the Serbian seven-footer and power forward Aleksej Pokusevski. There’s an extreme range in what Pokusevski can do well and what his weaknesses are. He’s a machine on the defensive end of the floor, but his limited quickness could change that once he reaches the NBA.

Moreover, Pokusevski is a good catch-and-shoot big man and also a good rim protector, which fits the mould that the Milwaukee Bucks established for center Brook Lopez on the outside.
