2020 NBA Draft: Anthony Edwards and 9 other prospects who can help the Wizards

Wizards

Nobody knows for sure whether the 2020 NBA Draft will take place on June 25 or at a later date, and we won't know how the exact draft order quite yet either. 

What we do know is the draft will go on and that as of now, the Wizards have a first-round pick and a second-round pick at their disposal. Their first currently holds the ninth-best odds at the top pick in the draft, and their second-round pick sits at No. 37 overall.

John Wall is set to come back next season to join Washington's core led by Bradley Beal and Rui Hachimura. If they ultimately use their first-round pick on a 2020 prospect, that player will probably someone who helps the team win right away and projects as a key contributor for years to come. 

Here's a look at 10 prospects in this year's who would fit right in on Washington.

Anthony Edwards: SG/SF, Georgia

Anthony Edwards is arguably the best player in this year's draft, so the ping pong balls would have to bounce the Wizards' way if they're to have a chance at him. 

Edwards is a talented scorer off the dribble, can be a handful to guard thanks to his massive frame and has a ton of potential defensively. There are some questions around his jump shot mechanics, and if he were to play next to Wall and Beal, Edwards would have to be able to hit the occasional spot-up three. 

 

But still, could you imagine Wall, Beal and Edwards sharing the floor off an opponent's miss? Transition defenses beware.
