Known as a knock-down shooter, Kennard is also an able slasher and passer. Though Kennard is not the quickest guard, and he sometimes struggles on defense, his versatility should make him a valued asset in the NBA.
Authentic Womens Roberto Aguayo Jersey Justin Patton, PF, Timberwolves (16th overall) — The other player Minnesota received in the Jimmy Butler trade has plenty of upside in his own right. Patton is a raw, but he’s a physical 7-footer out of Creighton who fills a positional need for the Timberwolves.
Shane Ray Authentic Jersey Patton, who will likely redshirt this year as he gets stronger and refines his skills, could develop into a prototypical stretch-4 in the NBA. Lean and long, Patton can shoot over smaller defenders. He is also an able shot-blocker and finisher around the rim. Minnesota may have drafted a steal in the middle of the first round.
The stunning thing here is that Jordan, not Griffin, is the bigger star in terms of current accolades. Griffin just signed a monster $173 million contract, but the results haven’t been great in recent years. He has exchanged dunks for 3s, which is probably smart for his durability. Griffin has missed the last two All-Star games due to injury and his only All-NBA appearance in the last three seasons was at third-team level. He’s not the box-office hit he used to be; his dunk rate has been sliced to a third of what it was in 2011-12.
There were some recent whispers that the Clippers would move Jordan in an effort to upgrade the roster with smaller pieces, but such a move would probably kick them off this list. This was one of the best big threes in the league with Paul around, but it’s possible that it will be a big zero if Griffin’s health betrays him again and Jordan is moved.
