Every year, NBA teams find rotation players in the second round of the draft. Malcolm Brogdon was named the Rookie of the Year after he was selected by the Bucks 36th overall in 2016. Draymond Green was picked 35th by the Warriors in the 2012 draft and became an instrumental part of three NBA championship teams. Five second-round 2019 NBA Draft sleepersTremont Waters, guard, LSUWaters is a pure point guard who thrives with the ball in his hands. He can score off the pick-and-roll, push the pace and he willingly distributes to his teammates. Waters, however, is undersized at 5-10, which could prevent him from becoming an adequate defender. “I try and anticipate passing lanes. If I’m guarding the ball, I try and read the ball placement when [the other guy] is dribbling. Pretty much knowing other people’s games, I’m able to read and react on defense.” – Tremont Waters (@LSUBasketball) #BuzzCity #NBADraft pic.twitter.com/JbaY4vOyf7— Charlotte Hornets (@hornets) June 10, 2019Terance Mann, forward, Florida StateMann is a versatile defender who should develop into someone capable of guarding multiple positions in the NBA. He currently projects as a role player, at best, but his ceiling could be raised significantly if he develops his shot. The 6-7 wing connected on just 32.7 percent of his 3-point attempts over four seasons at Florida State.

The 6-7 forward is a reliable defender, as well, and could develop into a solid 3-and-D player. He has a chance to go in the first round, however, ESPN projects he’ll be taken with the No. 35 pick, so he fits here.VIDEO: The Official @BelmontMBB Dylan Windler @Dylan_Windler23 Highlight #itsbruintime #NBADraft pic.twitter.com/RxxvUL6XQh— Belmont Basketball (@BelmontMBB) June 13, 2019Carsen Edwards, guard, PurdueEdwards is a proven scorer who averaged 24.3 points and led Purdue to the Elite Eight in 2018-19. He’s a knockdown shooter who found ways to create for himself despite facing double teams. Edwards will struggle defensively at the next level, but his ability on the other end of the floor is well worth the risk.Fact: Carsen Edwards put on one of the greatest shows in NCAA Tournament history. pic.twitter.com/2WusY5bDR4— CBS Sports (@CBSSports) March 31, 2019Tacko Fall, center, Central FloridaThe 7-6 center will certainly be a project. His offense is raw, and he’ll struggle to guard the pick-and-roll. But, with his size, he’s an excellent shot blocker. He has the potential to become a strong rim protector, which is definitely valuable in the modern NBA. Fall has a chance to go undrafted, but he has met with multiple teams — including the Knicks, Magic, Lakers and Cavaliers. It seems like someone may take a flier on him.With eye-popping height and an impressive showing in the NCAA Tournament, Tacko Fall (@tackofall99) of @UCF_MBB is looking to show teams that his game is still improving as the NBA Draft approaches. pic.twitter.com/qGOGMZf6Mu— Indiana Pacers (@Pacers) June 5, 2019 NBA Draft 2019 rumors: Rockets may be looking to trade into top 20 NBA Draft 2019: RJ Barrett wants Knicks to pick him at No. 3, won’t work out for any other team Isaiah Thomas, DeAndre Jordan and Paul Millsap were second round draft choices, and all have gone on to make at least one All-Star team.Here are five players projected to be picked in the second round of this year’s draft who could make an impact.
