Measuring around 6' 3" and weighing in at 174 pounds, Stanford guard Tyrell Terry has reportedly caught the eye of championship contenders LA Lakers as well as that of the Milwaukee Bucks.

The latest reports in this regard suggest that both teams could be interested in drafting a talented newcomer like Tyrell Terry with their respective picks in the NBA Draft 2020. Terry is an explosive athlete and would be a good option for both teams, considering their defensive schemes.

After a workout with the Orlando Magic last Thursday, it has been reported that Lewis also worked out with the New York Knicks, Detroit Piston, and Chicago Bulls this week.

Scouts are reportedly pleased with Kira Lewis Jr.'s talent, with one of them quoting in this regard:

"Lewis has great speed, creates for himself and others and should thrive in today's game," one scout Bleacher Report. "He's still young [he turned 19 in April] after two years in college. He has upside."

Lewis Jr. was incredibly impressive with Alabama, averaging 23.2 points and 6.7 assists while shooting 46.3% from three in his last nine games before the COVID-19 panic interrupted the basketball season. 

Lewis Jr. could be an enticing option ahead of the NBA Draft 2020. He could be an option for teams who value his ability to generate offense with speed as well as for his creativity and shot-making. His only flaw is his high turnover rate and trouble in traffic, something teams will need to consider before picking him in the Draft.
