Second round

31. Raptors (via Pistons) choose A.J. Johnson

32. Jazz (via Wizards) select Trey Alexander

33. Bucks (via Blazers) take Baylor Scheierman

34. Trail Blazers (via Hornets) draft Justin Edwards

35. Spurs pick Alex Karaban

The 6’8 forward is a lights out shooter, who helped UConn win back-to-back NCAA championships. He made 38.9 percent of his 378 threes over the last two years. The 21-year-old has a high basketball IQ and knows how to impact winning. There are questions about his defense and athletic ability, but the Spurs have Wemby.

San Antonio finished 28th in 3-point percentage in 2024 but was 16th in makes thanks to their attempts. Adding a plus-shooting forward capable of spreading the floor would be a massive win in the second round. There is no guarantee Alex Karaban will last this long, but he is a strong fit in the Alamo.
