12. Charlotte Hornets

Sekou Doumbouya: Forward – France

Height:6’9 Weight:210

Age:18.5 Wingspan: 6’11

Sekou Doumbouya a young combo forward out of the French A League, is the selection for the Charlotte Hornets in our 2019 NBA Mock Draft 2.0. Sekou has great quickness, length and fluidity and has the ability to play both small and power forward in the NBA. He is still raw, being one of the youngest prospect in this year’s draft, but he shows a promising jumpshot, crossover dribble and the ability to finish inside. He’s also great in transition with his ability to run the floor. The Charlotte Hornets would be a great place for Sekou to start his career, having countrymen Tony Parker and Nicholas Batum there to help his transition into the NBA and American culture. Sekou Doumbouya was my number eight pick for the Atlanta Hawks, in the 1.0 version of our mock draft. With the success that Pascual Skiakum is having for the Toronto Raptors, Sekou who has a similar game is sure to draw the interest of teams in the lottery.

Mike Schmitz of ESPN provides his thoughts an a recent huge game by Sekou Doumbouya he also provided video of the performance in the following tweet:

2018 Stats: Pts:7.3 REB:3.1 APG:0.7 STL:0.8 BLK:0.5 FG%:48.8 2P%:59.3 3P%:32.5 FT%:76.9

13. Miami Heat

Rui Hachimura: Forward – Gonzaga

Height:6’9 Weight:238 Age:21.2

The Miami Heat were in the Eastern Conference playoff race most of the season, despite only having starting point guard Goran Dragic for 36 games. The Heat have good defenders in Justice Winslow, Bam Adebayo and Hassan Whiteside. They need a multi talent offensive threat to add to their arsenal. That makes Gonzaga forward Rui Hachimura a good fit for Miami. Hachimura scores in a variety of ways, driving into the paint, knocking down jumpers and occasionally posing up. He’s also able to defend multiple positions. Rui has the ability to finish through contact and that’s one of his greatest strengths. His biggest weakness is he doesn’t create well for his teammates.

Draft analyst Mike Schmitz of ESPN provides a look at Rui Hachimura in his Film Room series, in the following tweet:

2018 Stats: Pts:19.7 REB:6.5 APG:1.5 STL:0.9 BLK:0.7 FG%:59.1 2P%:60.6 3P%:41.7 FT%:73.9

14. Boston Celtics:

Jaxson Hayes: Center – Texas

Height:7’0 Weight:219 Age:18.11

Wingspan:7’4 Standing Reach:9’3

The Boston Celtics select Jaxson Hayes with the final lottery selection in our mock draft. Playing former Atlanta Hawks draft pick Al Horford at center the majority of the minutes, the Boston Celtics are often at a rebounding disadvantage and unable to protect the rim from attacks by the opposition. That makes Jaxson Hayes a good target for them. Hayes is an agile big man, who specializes in blocking shots and dunking the basketball. His solid free throw percentage gives hope that he can one day develop a jumpshot. His biggest concerns are his low rebound rate and his high foul rate. He is player that many experts are predicting will be drafted by the Atlanta Hawks. Jeremy Woo of is one of those analysts who has Jaxson Hayes going to the Atlanta Hawks in his latest mock draft. However I make the case that Hayes is not a fit for Atlanta, in this Atl All Day article.

ESPN ranks Jaxson Hayes number 11 on their best available player board and offer this pre draft analysts by Mike Schmitz:

"Strengths – Excellent physical profile at 7-foot with a 7-3 wingspan and a huge standing reach. Big hands. Terrific frame that will continue to fill out. Fluid athlete who is highly coordinated and quick off his feet finishing lobs or protecting the rim. Beats opposing big men down the court regularly. Lauded for his off-court intangibles and should continue to make significant strides physically and skill-wise as he gains experience. – Second-best shot-blocker in college basketball among likely draft picks. Shows some agility and coordination stepping outside of the paint in ball-screen situations. Mobile enough to recover and make plays at the rim when beat. Improvement areas – Struggled to stay on the floor at times for Texas due to foul trouble (six fouls per 40 minutes). – Lacks a degree of physicality on the defensive glass. Averaged only 8.9 rebounds per 40. Game moves a little too fast for him at times. Generated only one assist every 83 minutes played, by far the worst rate among likely draft picks."
