Re-drafting the 2018 NBA Draft

8th pick: Devonte’ Graham

Charlotte’s draft record in recent times is an ugly one. Graham, having scored over 18 per game with 7.5 assists, looks to be a success story on the Hornets, and has caused them an uncomfortable dilemma with free agent acquisition Terry Rozier.

There’s a case to be made for Graham being picked ahead of Sexton here. Graham needs to prove it in 2020/21.
