Draft Notes: Hill, Hammonds, Montgomery

The NBA has postponed the draft lottery, which means we will need to wait even longer to find out who will net the No. 1 pick in the 2020 draft.

If the regular season doesn’t resume, the Warriors, Cavaliers, and Timberwolves will each have a 14% shot at the top spot, as our Reverse Standings show. There’s no consensus on who the top prospect is, a la the 2013 draft, though the overall talent is expected to be better than that class.

Let’s take a look at more notes on the upcoming draft:

  • UCLA’s Jalen Hill is taking his name out of the 2020 NBA draft, according to Ben Bolch of the Los Angeles Times. The 6’10” defensive-minded big will return to school for his junior campaign (redshirt).
  • Georgia forward Rayshaun Hammonds is signing with agent Billy Davis of Family of Athletes, meaning he won’t be returning to college, Evan Daniels of 247 Sports tweets.
  • EJ Montgomery is staying in the draft. The Kentucky forward signed with the Wasserman Group, as the agency posts on its Twitter feed.

    Look back at the track record of the Timberpuppies draft going back to the team’s inception back in 1989 and that will demonstrate for you how this next draft will work out for them. No clear #1 ?? You can bet that no matter what number pick the team gets and no matter which player is taken with that pick, IT WILL BE THE WRONG GUY AND NOT WORK OUT !!
    As for the SECOND ROUND, based on the way in which the Timberpuppies have used THOSE picks in the past, they have not even been aware that there is a second round to the draft !!
    Henk Norel anyone ??
    This team is cursed !!
