Latest CBS Sports 2020 NBA mock Draft Every season is different when it comes to evaluating the next crop of talent for the NBA draft. Often times, though, there is one college basketball player that stands out to make himself the consensus selection to be the No. 1 overall pick. Last year that was Duke forward Zion Williamson, who was the top pick by the New Orleans Pelicans in the 2019 NBA Draft. Center James Wiseman looked like he could be that player early on this season, but the Memphis 7-footer was then suspended 12 games for benefits his family received, while Wiseman was in high school, from Tigers head coach Penny Hardaway.
