NewArena’s NBA Mock Draft 1.0

30. Milwaukee Bucks: Dylan Windler, F, Belmont

Windler may not look the part of a typical NBA wing, but the knockdown shooter from Belmont has a place in the league. Windler led the entire Ohio Valley Conference with 100 made threes last season, shooting at a 42.9 percent clip.

Under Mike Budenholzer, the Bucks have cultivated an offensive ecosystem that is very shooter-friendly. Windler’s size and range could make him an intriguing fit next to superstars such as Giannis.

29. San Antonio Spurs (from TOR): Grant Williams, F, Tennesee

Traditionally, the Spurs prefer to select the more polished players in the pool. Williams is a back-to-back SEC Player of the Year, and boasts an advanced inside game with the ability to stretch his game beyond the three-point line. He’s tough, doesn’t make a whole lot of mistakes, and is highly-efficient on the offensive end.

28. Golden State Warriors: Charles Bassey, C, Western Kentucky

Bassey has taken a puzzling route through the college ranks. A former five-star recruit, Bassey chose to play his college ball at Western Kentucky — a program with very little historical relevance on the hardwood. Questionable decision aside, Bassey is an intriguing big who averaged a double-double during his lone season in college. A team will take a shot on him in the late first-round, and the Warriors could always use front court depth.

27. Brooklyn Nets (from DEN): Admiral Schofield, F, Tennessee

The more polarizing of the two Tennessee big men, Schofield boasts a unique skill-set which could translate well into today’s game. The bruising tweener is built like a tank, but was also the Vols’ best outside shooter. Given his NBA-ready body, and his ability to knock down around 40 percent of his threes, Schofield has the chance to be a glue guy for a number of years.
