14. San Antonio Spurs – Isaiah Jackson, F, Kentucky

The San Antonio Spurs would be wise to add to the frontcourt in the 2021 NBA Draft, especially after electing to move on from LaMarcus Aldridge at the trade deadline. One potential target for the Spurs that could emerge at the end of the lottery is Isaiah Jackson.

Jackson is a 6-foot-10 big out of Kentucky. He’s considered a modern big for today’s game and is a great shot blocker (averaged nearly three per game in college). There are concerns about his offensive ceiling, but that will hopefully grow as he gains more experience.

Jackson is a good defender and is mobile enough where he wouldn’t be schemed off the court. I’m sure Gregg Popovich could utilize him in a way that will exhaust his potential and hopefully get him to a ceiling.
