With the NBA lottery now complete, teams can officially begin to strategize for the June 20 draft.
After winning the lottery, the New Orleans Pelicans can narrow their search to one name: Zion Williamson. The next step is deciding what to do with Anthony Davis.
The real fun starts at No. 2 overall, where the Memphis Grizzlies must decide whether to add their point guard of the future in Ja Morant or settle on volume-scoring wing RJ Barrett.
Anything goes after that. Results from the predraft process will help determine how the rest of the board shakes out.
The NBA combine on Thursday and Friday represents the next key opportunity for both prospects and scouts.
1. New Orleans Pelicans: Zion Williamson (Duke, PF/C, Freshman)
Tuesday night’s lottery likely revealed Zion Williamson’s home for next season and beyond.
