6. Nico Mannion (Point Guard)

Nico Mannion is a 6-foot-3 point guard who is a sneaky good athlete for a skinny, short redhead kid and is someone who seems to be a part of this new generation of quick-twitch athletes that primarily dominate the point guard position as well.

His highlights crazy, too, and if you want to see some good basketball mixtapes on Youtube from someone in this draft class that isn’t named LaMelo Ball, look up Mannion’s mixtapes, as they’re absolute poetry in motion.

He can shoot the hell out of the ball, is a vastly improved playmaker, and has shown in high school he can play above or under the rim with a mixture of great touch and fluid athletic ability. However, it may be tough for him to play above or even at the rim against NBA athletes unless he bulks up a lot and learns how to bounce off players better, but his potential is just too much to pass up on here at No. 6
