Wing. Los Angeles Clippers. Matisse Thybulle. 27. player. 77.

Original Pick: Mfiondu Kabengele, Florida St

The LA Clippers absolutely blew this pick, which isn’t super damaging late in the first but for a team as expensive as they are, finding inexpensive talent would have been nice. Instead, they take a swing on Matisse Thybulle, who is a truly special defensive talent and a cripplingly bad offensive player. Can the Clippers find a way to unlock that balance?

41. . Center / Wing. Golden State Warriors. Bol Bol. 28. player

Original Pick: Jordan Poole, Michigan

For all of the split opinions on Jordan Poole, there is no question that he will be well gone in a redraft. Instead, the Warriors get to take a swing at Bol Bol, one of the most unique players in the league as something of a wing with a center’s height. He had a great season with the Orlando Magic, but even after his fourth year is still somewhat raw.

29. . Wing. San Antonio Spurs. John Konchar. 29. player

Original Pick: Keldon Johnson, Kentucky

John Konchar has settled in as a solid rotation wing for the Memphis Grizzlies, a capable shooter and defender with very little offensive juice. That’s just fine at this point in the draft, and the San Antonio Spurs take him here in place of Keldon Johnson, who leaped up into the Top 10.

156. . Shooting Guard. Cleveland Cavaliers. Terence Davis. 30. player

Original Pick: Kevin Porter Jr., USC

After taking Tyler Herro and Nickeil Alexander-Walker in this redraft, the Cleveland Cavaliers take one more perimeter player in Terence Davis. He is a solid 3-and-D option that the current Cavaliers would love to have. NAW and Davis would give them real defensive options to build around Herro and Collin Sexton with. Davis saw big minutes in the playoffs for the Sacramento Kings and will be a potential value free agent this summer.
