Redrafting the 2018 NBA Draft: Luka Doncic and Trae Young still go back-to-back, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander cracks top five


The 2018 NBA Draft will always be remembered for the Luka Doncic-for-Trae Young swap on draft night, but take a second look at this class and you'll quickly realize it's deeper than you think. While there were undoubtedly some misses in the lottery, there were also a lot of franchises that struck gold with later picks. To name a few: The Suns landed Mikal Bridges at No. 10, the Clippers got Shai Gilgeous-Alexander at No. 11, injury concerns saw Michael Porter Jr. fall to the Nuggets at No. 14, Trail Blazers' Anfernee Simons (No. 24) and Celtics' Robert Williams III (No. 27) both went outside the top 20, and the Mavericks selected Jalen Brunson in the early second round. While the majority of these players are just beginning to establish themselves in the NBA, now feels like an interesting time to revisit the lottery picks with a redraft. Four years removed from the draft, TSN's Kyle Irving and Gilbert McGregor alternated picks and made their selections based on who they thought deserved to go in each draft spot, regardless of what the team selecting needs most at the moment.
