The Spurs announced Wednesday the promotion of Hammon to lead assistant on coach Gregg Popovich’s staff. She fills the role previously held by James Borrego, who was hired to be the Hornets’ head coach in May.
The Bucks need depth, and they need scoring off the bench. Robinson led the ACC in scoring and has been a late riser in terms of draft stock. The Bucks have a crowded backcourt, but they need perimeter scoring.
Okogie is an excellent defender who can knock down 3s, which makes him an ideal Gregg Popovich guy. Jacob Evans is possible here, too, and they’d be thrilled if Smith or Walker slipped to them.
The Hawks are not sure what they’ll do with Dennis Schroeder going forward, and even if they stick with Schroeder, their only backup under contract is Isaiah Taylor. This would be a good place to grab Holiday.
Second-rounders worth highlighting:
Landry Shamet (No. 33) — Shamet took a hit for worse than expected measurements at the combine, but he’s still a good prospect. He’s a career 43.7 percent 3-point shooter on 364 attempts, possesses an excellent assist-to-turnover ratio and can play on the ball or off it. He should be able to contribute to winning at the next level.
Jevon Carter (No. 39) — Carter is an elite defender at the point of attack and possesses the physical strength to translate to the NBA right away. He’s worked hard to turn himself into an NBA prospect, becoming a better than 38.0 percent 3-point shooter in his final two college seasons. The West Virginia guard projects to fill a role similar to Patrick Beverley in the NBA.
Gary Clark (No. 43) — At 6-7, Clark projects as a high-end team defender. He averaged 2.0 steals and 1.7 blocks per 40 minutes as a senior at Cincinnati. Although he needs to develop a consistent jump shot, his success in draft models based on prospects’ past outcomes is another reason worth betting on him.
