San Antonio Spurs Mock Draft 1.0: Picks 9 and 10

. Wing. Arkansas. Moses Moody. player. . 9. 84

With the ninth overall pick, the Sacramento Kings select who I believe to be the best wing player at this point in the draft in Moses Moody. The Kings already have decent depth at the 4 and 5 positions, and they obviously have their backcourt of the future set in stone with De'Aaron Fox and Tyrese Haliburton, but they're desperately in need of more depth at the small forward position.

Enter Moses Moody. He will surely be the type of wing player that the Kings will be looking for in that there's optimism around his three-point shooting, he has the length and athleticism to be a versatile defender, and he'll fit with the timeline of the Kings' other young stars. In terms of team fit, I think this is one of the best outside of the top five picks in the draft.

Corey Kispert. 10. player. . . Wing. Gonzaga. 69

Based on Swin Cash's hilariously demoralized reaction to the Pelicans picking tenth overall in this year's draft, I fully expect for them to make some sort of big move with this pick. For the purpose of this mock draft though, I have the Pelicans selecting Gonzaga's Corey Kispert with the tenth overall pick.

If there is any grain of truth to the rumors that Zion Williamson is unhappy in New Orleans, the Pelicans will need to work quickly to improve their trajectory and compile players that will help him to win games. What is most blatantly obvious to me in their team is that they desperately need more shooting. Thankfully for them, Corey Kispert is one of the best shooters in the draft and is frequently compared to Joe Harris. If the Pelicans are unable to make a draft-day move, this pick would provide them with the most immediate help.
