Mock Draft 2020 1.0 – Escolhas de primeira rodada

Com a pandemia de coronavírus, e a consequente paralisação de competições esportivas ao redor do mundo, o draft de 2020 virou um grande incógnita.

Inegavelmente, o cancelamento do March Madness vai dificultar a avaliação dos prospectos, que já seria complicada por conta da pouca diferença de talento entre um jogador projetado no Top 10 e outro cotado para o fim da primeira rodada. O torneio da NCAA costuma alavancar e derrubar prospectos. Neste ano, isso não vai existir.

Ainda que estejamos vivenciando esse contratempo gigantesco, chegou a hora de iniciarmos a série de Mocks do Jumper Brasil com todas as 30 primeiras escolhas do recrutamento, que promete ser o mais surpreendente dos últimos anos.

Na primeira edição do simulado completo da primeira rodada, retomo os trabalhos ao lado do editor Ricardo Stabolito Jr., de Gabriel Andrade, colunista de scout do Jumper; de Lucas Torres, editor do Central do Draft, nosso parceiro na produção de conteúdo relacionado ao College e ao recrutamento; e de Vitor Camargo, do blog Two-Minute Warning e do podcast Na Era do Garrafão. Como de costume, as projeções são uma combinação de necessidades dos times e preferência pessoal.

Os fãs de  Golden State WarriorsCleveland CavaliersMinnesota TimberwolvesAtlanta HawksDetroit Pistons, New York Knicks e Chicago Bulls, franquias detentoras das piores campanhas da temporada, já estão na expectativa para o draft deste ano e de olho nos principais prospectos.

Então, sem mais delongas, vamos ao que interessa: confira o nosso Mock Draft 1.0, com todas as 30 escolhas de primeira rodada. Sinta-se à vontade para fazer seus comentários:
