Both our picks make this top 10 sleepers list:
https://www.yardbarker.com/nba/articles/dont_sleep_on_these_10_nba_draft_prospects/s1_13132_29335061
Justin Wright-Foreman, Hofstra

At Hofstra, Wright-Foreman’s 6-foot-1 frame didn’t stop him from being one of the more efficient scorers in college basketball. Whether launching three-point shots off the dribble or finishing at the basket, Wright-Foreman, ranked 44th on Yardbarker's Big Board, is a threat from many positions on the floor. He must adjust to playing against the bigger, longer and faster players in the NBA, but there’s a good chance Wright-Foreman could have a long career in the league.


Jarrell Brantley, College of Charleston

Brantley was a workout warrior during pre-draft sessions. About half the teams in the NBA worked out the strong, skilled forward. Some have expressed interest in drafting him late in the second round. Brantley must improve his movement and shot selection, but the attention he has received from NBA teams bodes well for his prospects.

Wright-Foreman, another lefty with skillz. Second all-time scorer in Hofstra history. At first blush, I like these picks to fill out a roster.

I was making fun as Tony Jones said we would be aggressive tonight. But I didn't realize agressive meant at the very end of the 2nd round..... lol

I knew nothing about these guys, but from what I'm gathering I like their archetypes

Brantley - 6'7 255 lbs with a 7'2 wingspan. Energy 4 with ball handling and shooting potential

JWF - 6'0 190 with a 6'7.5 wingspan. Tiny, lefty (!) microwave scorer. Elite efficiency at all 3 levels.

Miye Oni - 6'6 with 6'10.75 wingspan. Typical 3&D prospect. Good one foot athleticism, plays hard, shooting potential.

3 picks at the tail end... I guess that's being aggressive?

Hopefully at least 1 of these guys pan out.

Check out Oni's assist numbers. He might be better than just 3&D player. It's possible he can playmake a bit too...

Yeah, after second look...his numbers give me a Royce O'Neale vibe. Probably isn't the best shooter or ball handler, but has a little bit of both.
