69. This is a surprise to zero percent of the people reading this, as 29 other teams would be making this same pick had they landed the first overall selection. David Griffin may try his best to keep Anthony Davis and Zion Williamson together, or he may trade Davis and build the whole team around Zion moving forward, neither of which is the wrong move. Zion’s generational athleticism and skill-set already make him one of the most valuable assets in the league. Pair that with Anthony Davis and the New Orleans Pelicans are sitting on one of the biggest gold mines in the NBA.. Power Forward. New Orleans Pelicans. Zion Williamson. 1. player

With the Memphis Grizzlies entering a new era post “Grit-N-Grind,” they’ll hope Ja Morant and Jaren Jackson Jr. can become improved versions of Mike Conley and Marc Gasol. Their play styles will mesh together seamlessly as Jaren Jackson Jr. spreads the floor for Ja to slash his way to the hoop, creating for himself and others. His athleticism will aid in transition, while his court vision will only improve Jackson’s looks from deep. Once they find a reasonable package for Conley, Ja will take on the keys to the team, presumably for many years to come.. Point Guard. Memphis Grizzlies. Ja Morant. 2. player. 211
