Re-drafting the 2017 NBA Draft

5th pick: Jonathan Isaac

A lot of young players need to improve defensively. Jonathan Isaac does not fall into that category. He’s already at an All-Defense level.

Only 27 games in his rookie year and a long-term injury this season leave Isaac as a rawer player than others from this class. His game needs fine-tuning, Orlando would love to see his three-point percentage improve.

Orlando have gone all-in on size. Isaac, standing a shade under seven-feet, is a major part of that.

For this redraft, he ticks the current performance box. With a rounding to his game offensively, he could be threatening an All-Star team before long.
