With the calendar about to flip to a new year, it’s time to look at one final mock draft of 2018 for the Portland Trail Blazers. In his latest NBA mock draft, Bleacher Report draft expert Jonathan Wasserman has the Blazers selecting UNC freshman guard Coby White with pick No. 20:
Scouts should overlook White’s lack of explosion for his 6’5” size, quickness and skill level as a passer and shot-maker. He’s averaging 24.6 points, 6.3 assists and 3.7 threes per 40 minutes, making a first-round case with scoring and playmaking that a number of teams could use for their second units.
Wasserman has White listed as a PG/SG, which would bring yet another young guard to Portland’s roster.
