Georgia big Nicolas Claxton (211-SF-99) has a ton of potential, and that could interest teams, such as the Charlotte Hornets, during the 2019 NBA Draft.

June 20th is marked on the calendar for all teams around the league, as that is when the 2019 NBA Draft will take place. The Charlotte Hornets are getting into gear and beginning pre-draft workouts with Nicolas Claxton and others today, Wednesday.

Claxton, a sophomore from Georgia, declared for the draft last month, but can still return to school thanks to the new NBA Draft rules. The pre-draft process will likely be a huge influence on his decision to stay in school or go pro.

About Nicolas Claxton
Height: 6'11'

Weight: 220 pounds

2018-19 stats: 13.0 points, 8.6 rebounds, 2.5 blocks, 46% FG, 31.6 minutes

Defensive potential
Good shot blocker
Moves well for his size, runs the floor
Has some perimeter skills, decent ball handling
Good athlete

Not a great shooter, but has shooting upside
Needs to work on his body, get stronger
Still pretty raw, definitely a project

In my opinion, Claxton is a first round pick. However, the Hornets will likely be picking in the late lottery area, which may be too high for Claxton. Due to his potential and length, I expect him to garner quite a lot of interest over the next month.

NBA Draft Combine Notebook: Nicolas Claxton Displays Versatility - 5 days ago
CHICAGO - The on-court portion of the draft combine wrapped up on Friday, with two more scrimmages giving prospects a chance to perform in front of the entire league. As a whole, five-on-five play was heavily watered down this year as a vast majority of potential first-round picks opted not to play, aiming to protect their draft stock. Regardless, there were a number of intriguing players who benefited this week. There were also some guys who struggled. Some of the more noteworthy perform...   [read more]
