The 2019 NBA Draft is around the corner and it’s time to check what the European prospects bring to the table this year as well as where is the best fit for them

The 2019 NBA Draft is scheduled for Thursday, June 20, and this time European prospects are not expected to make a real splash with very few exceptions.

Sekou Doumbouya, Goga Bitadze, Luka Samanic, Deividas Sirvydis, Joshua Obiesie, Adam Mokoka, Yovel Zoosman, Matas Jogela and David Okeke have made themselves available to the teams but who’s got the best chance to join one?

First round

There seems to be a consensus among the mocks about the first eight picks in the 2019 NBA Draft which are expected to be: Zion Williamson, Ja Morant, R.J. Barrett, Darius Garland, De’Andre Hunter, Jarrett Culver, Coby White, and Cam Reddish.

Beyond that, the variation’s start and increase with the later picks but the top European prospect in this year’s Draft, Sekou Doumbouya, is highly likely to end up among the lottery picks.
