Per ESPN’s Chad Ford, the Lakers are reportedly “enamored” with Ball and would consider taking him No. 1 overall. If he fell to them at No. 3, they’d almost certainly scoop him up as soon as they were on the clock.
6. Minnesota Timberwolves: Jonathan Isaac, Florida State F (6-10, Fr.)
Minnesota might tab Monk to beef up its shooting arsenal, but after watching Isaac’s two-way athleticism, range and interchangeability in pre-draft workouts, Tom Thibodeau will be swayed to take the Seminole.
Given Isaac’s bounciness and fluidity at his size, he has a great chance to thrive in every frontcourt position and role. Jonathan Tjarks of The Ringer aptly described the big fella’s draft value.
If Isaac is a small forward who can play power forward in certain matchups, he’s fairly valued by most draft sites near the bottom of the top 10. If he’s a power forward who can play some center, he could become the steal of the draft.
In a few years, we might be referring to Isaac and Karl-Anthony Towns as one of the best frontcourts in the league.
