4. The Bucks select Mitchell Robinson in the second round.
Mitchell Robinson is a lottery talent that is highly unlikely to go in the lottery for a number of reasons. He’s actually a year removed from high school, but hasn’t played any organized basketball since.
Robinson attended three different high schools and was a McDonald’s All-American his final season. He then gave a verbal commitment to Texas A&M, but changed it to Western Kentucky. However, he left WKU in September in order to prepare for the NBA Draft.
Despite him moving around so often, he’s unquestionably a top flight talent and a true high-risk, high-reward pick. Unfortunately, teams haven’t seen him play against any real competition nor in action in over a year. This leads to his fall from the back of the first round (where he’s projected to go now) to the beginning of the second.
As a 6-foot-11 center, he could be the answer to all the Bucks’ woes at the position. They’ll risk their whole pool of money in order to buy back into the second round and select the free-falling Robinson.
