NBA’s best teams draft well outside of the lottery — and the Sixers have joined the fun

Article Summary:

If we go back to 2019, we see that the Toronto Raptors had several contributing players who were drafted outside the lottery. Pascal Siakam, selected 27th in the 2016 draft, was one of their best players, averaging 19 points and seven rebounds during the playoffs that year.

With that said, I’m not going to argue that Tyrese Maxey will be better than VanVleet, Isaiah Joe will be Middleton or that BBall Paul will be the next Draymond, but I will suggest that great teams find good players late in the draft.

Thankfully, this year, the Sixers look to be improved offensively, and much of it has to do with the drafting and development of young players in 2020: Tyrese Maxey, Isaiah Joe and BBall Paul 58th pick; second round).
