4. Josh Jackson
Things haven’t gone exactly to plan thus far for Josh Jackson. The 4th overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft has had a rough start to his career but things could be turning around.
Jackson has always been a fairly consistent scorer. He averaged 13.7 points per game in his first season en route to a spot on the All-Rookie team. Since then, he was outcasted by the Phoenix Suns and spent a majority of the current season in the G-League before finally earning a spot in the Memphis Grizzlies rotation.
In his final five games of the season, Jackson averaged 16.6 points and hit 13-of-34 attempts from the 3-point line. This brief spurt of productivity could be an indication that the league has given up too early on this 23-year-old prospect.
Jackson has room to grow as a shooter but is already a solid slasher and average defender. Embracing a bench role with the Warriors would give him a great opportunity to play in a winning culture and reach his full potential.
