O.J. Mayo shot 8-of-13 from the field for 25 points in a loss to Golden State, adding five rebounds, six assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 40 minutes.

He's heating up again and shot 53.6 percent from the field on 11.2 attempts per game over his last five. While Mayo has been a must-start guy with Dirk Nowitzki in the lineup for Dallas, he was putting up third-round value prior to Dirk making his debut. Keep him in your lineup.

The Hawks selected Kevin Huerter with the 19th pick on Thursday.

He underwent surgery to repair torn ligaments in his right hand last week, and is expected to make a full recovery before camp. It’s all about shooting for the 6’7" shooting guard with his 41.7 3P% to help him get to a pristine 64.0 TS%. Huerter averaged 14.8 points, 5.0 boards, 3.4 assists, 0.7 blocks and 0.6 treys as he enters the NBA at almost the perfect time. The Maryland product also posted a 38-inch max vert at the combine with some of the best numbers overall in the strength and agility drills, and was one of the best shooters at the combine, as well. He is perhaps in the best position to get minutes among non-lottery players with the Hawks set for a rebuild, especially if Kent Bazemore is traded.

The Bucks have selected Donte DiVincenzo with the 17th overall pick in the 2017 NBA draft.

As 2018 started, there was almost no chance that DiVincenzo was going to leave Villanova early. However, he tore it up in the tournament to earn Most Outstanding Player honors on his title-winning squad. The 6’5" guard projects as a bench scorer, and he showed off at the combine with the top-ranked max vert at 42 inches (tied Josh Okogie). It’s a little risky to go after a guy that went off late in the year with guys like Malachi Richardson flopping after a tourney run, but DiVincenzo was efficient all season at 60.8 TS% and doesn’t look like a flash in the pan.

The Denver Nuggets have selected Michael Porter Jr. with the 14th overall pick in the 2018 NBA draft.

Porter Jr.'s long wait finally ends as the Nuggets scoop him up with the final pick in the lottery. A disappointing turn of events for Porter, as some mocks had projected him as high as No. 2. Injuries are the name of the game with MPJ, and some NBA people believe he could need a redshirt year, according to Jonathan Givony of ESPN.com. Porter Jr. needed back surgery before last season to keep him to just 53 total minutes at Missouri, and he had a recent hip flare up this month to cause him to delay some pre-draft evaluations. Of course, he did say the injury news was "exaggerated a lot" earlier this week. Injury issues aside, Porter changed his diet to vegan and is one of the biggest lottery wings in the past decade at 6’10" with a seven-foot wingspan. MPJ has compared himself to Giannis Antetokounmpo and Kevin Durant, so he has set some awfully high expectations for himself.

The Hornets selected Shai Gilgeous-Alexander with the 11th pick in the 2018 draft and then traded him to the LA Clippers in exchange for No. 12 pick Miles Bridges and two-second selections.

Gilgeous-Alexander was one of the fittest players in combine history at just 3.0% body fat, which was the lowest at the combine in a decade (Aaron Brooks 2.7%), and has prototype PG size at 6’6" with a seven-foot wingspan. SGA picked up serious steam this past week for his pre-draft showing as a two-way guard with several reports of teams wanting to trade up to get him. He also showed he can get to the rim at will with 44.3% of his shots coming from within three feet, and he lived in the pick-and-roll at UK as an 86th percentile scorer in that play. He does have a wonky form on his jumper, so he’ll need to work on that to become a well-rounded offensive weapon.

The Knicks selected Kentucky combo forward Kevin Knox with the No. 9 pick in the draft.

The second-youngest player in the draft popped at his workouts for his sheer athleticism. Knox played some small forward at Kentucky, and he could eventually be a small-ball five at 6’9" with a seven-foot wingspan. Knox has plenty of skill as an athlete and even was considered as a top quarterback prospect before he grew too tall for football. Knox doesn’t have the defensive stats fantasy owners are looking for with just 0.3 blocks per 40 minutes, but he has range as a shooter with his 42.1% on his two-point jumpers and 1.5 treys per game on 34.1% made. Given his youth and lackluster performance on defense, Knox may not carry much fantasy value in re-draft leagues, but will get plenty of chances to play right away in New York.

The Cleveland Cavs have selected Collin Sexton with the 8th overall pick in the 2018 NBA draft.

He was in the national spotlight for when he had to play against Minnesota 5-on-3 because of his team having players get disqualified with some injuries, but Sexton turned in a productive season at Alabama with averages of 19.2 points, 3.8 boards, 3.6 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.3 treys over 29.9 minutes per game. Sexton does have to work on his shooting after making just 33.6% from deep and 36.4% on his two-point jumpers, but he could be a top-notch defender at 6’2" and a 6’7’ wingspan. For what it's worth, LeBron's people "like" Sexton, according to Cavs beat writer Joe Vardon.

The Bulls drafted Wendell Carter Jr. with the seventh pick in the NBA Draft on Thursday.

The Bulls get the guy they were hoping for, assuming they were unable to make a deal to move up. The Duke big man did well at the combine with a 7’5" wingspan on his 6’10" frame, and Carter Jr. showed some touch from deep at 41.3% on treys as a freshman. Although, it was mostly catch-and-shoot treys with some space from defenders, and he only made 36.8% on his two-point jumpers. He’s also been a very high-character guy and has been since he was on the NBA draft radar. In 2016, Carter’s team won the Georgia 2A championship and afterwards his team left the bus for a celebration, but Carter stayed behind as the only player on the team to clean up after a mess the team made. Cool story aside, he has the talent to make an early impact on both side of the ball with 3.1 blocks per 40 minutes and making 73.8% at the line. This is one of the best landing spots for Carter Jr.'s fantasy value, so he's firmly on the radar as a top-100 pick in nine-category leagues.

The Magic have selected Mo Bamba with the No. 6 pick in the 2018 Draft.

He set a record at the combine with his condor-like 7’10" wingspan to get him to 4.9 blocks per 40 minutes in his freshman year at Texas. Bamba also has said he’ll out jump everyone in the NBA, he’s said his improvement on his jumper is night and day, and that he’s "the most adaptable player in this draft." Bamba didn’t have much of a shot last year at just 27.5% from deep, 32.2% on his two-point jumpers, and 68.1% at the line, but working with shooting expert Drew Hanlen has reportedly helped him tremendously. Even if he’s able to mildly improve those numbers, the 20-year-old center could hold elite fantasy upside for his blocks alone. He’ll be a name to watch in the middle rounds of drafts, and expect this selection to increase the possibility that the Magic moves Nikola Vucevic and/or Bismack Biyombo.

The Atlanta Hawks have traded the No. 3 overall pick to the Mavs in exchange for a 2019 first-round pick and the No. 5 pick, and will select Trae Young.

The 2019 first-rounder is top-5 protected. Young tore it up at Oklahoma last year as the first player in NCAA history to lead the nation in scoring and assists in a season as a first-team All-American. He has some of the deepest range as a jump-shooter and rarely got open looks with only 19 uncontested attempts from deep because of how teams focused on him defensively. Young’s downside is clear after he didn’t even measure six feet without shoes at the combine, he had a combine-low 6’3" wingspan, and he had some poor workouts for lottery teams. Still, the Hawks clearly believe in his shot-making. It will be interesting to see if Atlanta now considers trading starting PG Dennis Schroder.

The Grizzlies selected C Jaren Jackson Jr. with the fourth pick in the draft.

He reportedly did not originally share his medical information with the Grizzlies, but eventually came around today and has grown comfortable with the team. The Michigan State product made a quantum leap up draft boards in the past 10 months, and nobody saw him coming a few years ago when he gained almost six inches during his sophomore year in high school. The added height got him to 6’10" and his 7’5" wingspan helped him rack up a whopping 5.5 blocks per 40 minutes, adding a very impressive 2.0 treys per contest.  He did mention that he is going to try to bring his fouls down and he won’t try to block everything like he did last year. Jackson Jr. is essentially a modern-day five for his spacing on offense and rim protection on defense, but he’ll need to bulk up after struggling at the rim. This certainly isn't the optimal fit for arguably the best big in this draft class, but he has the talent to earn minutes out of the gate.

The Mavericks swapped the No. 5 pick and a 2019 protected first-rounder for the No. 3 pick and selected Luka Doncic at No. 3.

Not many teenagers can say they were the MVP on a championship-winning EuroLeague team, won an ACB title with another MVP, and earned a EuroBasket title with Slovenia. His skills with the ball are truly elite for his ability to find passing lanes, and his skillset as a pick-and-roll guard are unlike any other prospect. The Slovenian guard possesses a near-prototype body for a guard at 6’8" and 230 pounds, and Real Madrid has even used him as a small forward. If Doncic eventually becomes a deadly shooter, he could be one of the best European prospects in NBA history. He’ll be a popular target in the middle rounds of fantasy drafts and is an ideal franchise player for the Mavericks to build around.
