5. Oklahoma City Thunder – Davion Mitchell, G, Baylor

There may not be a player that is rising up draft boards quicker than Davian Mitchell, a 6-foot-2 guard out of Baylor. After helping leading the Bears to a national championship, Mitchell is going to receive some draft love over the next few weeks, and rightfully so.

And if Mitchell can continue to build off draft love heading into his pre-draft workouts and interviews, there’s a chance that he sneaks into the top five of this class. For a team like the Oklahoma City Thunder, adding a dynamic shooter such as Mitchell would help the team so much.

Add in the fact that Mitchell is also a good playmaker, as he average six assists per game during his junior season at Baylor, and this possible selection will look better and better over the course of the next few weeks.
