If the NBA abolishes the one and done rule and allows high school players to go straight to the NBA after their senior year, how would those high schoolers impact the 2019 draft? Although R.J. Barrett projects as an elite wing who seems like a sure thing to be an All Star, James Wiseman projects as the best NBA prospect and would be #1 in the draft. Wiseman is a skilled center prospect who in many ways reminds of Anthony Davis. Although it's still early in his career, he seems to be on a path to being an NBA superstar.
If the rule change does come to fruition, expect to see some NBA franchises take their tanking game to a new level. Even with the changes to the lottery system, being bad could be very good for teams next season - and first round picks will be worth their weight in gold.
