NBA draft is one of the best ways for a struggling team to build. Teams having very poor seasons get the best probabilistic chance of picking the top prospects from the draft. The NBA draft is capable of delivering a franchise cornerstone player. LeBron James, Tim Duncan changed the face of the entire franchise.  

The NBA draft 2019 is just around the corner. The New Orleans Pelicans have the rights to the most hyped prospect since LeBron James in Zion Williamson. They also have the fourth pick in the NBA draft now because of the inevitable trade of their superstar, Anthony Davis, to the Los Angeles Lakers. 

The Memphis Grizzlies have the second pick in the draft and they will be looking to add a franchise altering talent. New York Knicks missed out on Zion Williamson but they still have the third pick and are linked with a great prospect like RJ Barrett. 

Let's have a look at the top three point guards in the NBA Draft 2019:

#3 Coby White (North Carolina, Freshman)

Auburn v North Carolina
Auburn v North Carolina

Coby White is a 6'5'' scoring point guard. He has a good upside. He may not become an All-Star but can definitely become a starting point guard on a good team.

White also projects to be a good passer in the pick and roll situations. He demonstrated great IQ and vision and can be a great playmaker in an initiator role. White is someone who loves to push the tempo of the game. He is great at rebounding and after that constantly looks to throw outlet passes.

He also hit 43.1 percent of his catch-and-shoot attempts. He can be a threat from outside the arc and teams like Chicago Bulls or Phoenix Suns who are in the market in search of point guards can definitely utilize his services.
