20) Cleveland Cavaliers- Kyle Filipowski 

With rumors that the Cleveland Cavaliers could try and keep their core of Darius Garland, Donovan Mitchell, Evan Mobley, and Jarrett Allen together for at least another season, they could turn to the draft to try and find a rotation player to help build out their roster.

That could be big man Kyle Filipowski. Filipowski is potentially the most skilled offensive big man in the draft after showing his skills as an interior scorer, floor spacer, and passer. At Duke, he posted 17.1 points while also shooting 34.8% from three on 3.1 attempts and 8.2 rebounds per game. 

His shooting ability should allow him to play power forward in the NBA, and on the Cavs, he might spend time playing alongside Evan Mobley or Jarrett Allen. However, he could find a role off the bench at the five as an offensive option in the post that can also pick and pop.

That might not be Cleveland's most pressing need but turning the 20th pick into a rotation player is how good teams are able to add cheap depth that can help them win games during the regular season and the postseason. Filipowski projects to be a good rotation player on most teams.
