Tyrese Haliburton is the best player of his draft class so far, sorry Anthony Edwards

If you were to redraft the 2020 NBA draft, I think you would be pretty dumb to not take Tyrese Haliburton first or second. While I may be a bit biased, I feel that his numbers stand out above even Anthony Edwards (who made his first all-star team this year as well), but both have played well this season.

Anthony Edwards: 25 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists

Tyrese Haliburton: 21 points, 4 rebounds, 10 assists

I think if you were to update the redraft top ten, I would change it to the following:

  1. Tyrese Haliburton (12th)
  2. Anthony Edwards (1st)
  3. Tyrese Maxey (21st)
  4. LaMelo Ball (3rd)
  5. Desmond Bane (30th)
  6. Immanuel Quickley (25th)
  7. Onyeka Okongwu (6th)
  8. Davin Vassell (11th)
  9. Saddiq Bey (19th)
  10. Kenyon Martin Jr. (52nd)

I think Kenyon Martin Jr. taking a big step forward this year would vault him into most people’s top ten. I think Tyrese jumps up to either first or second given how great of a season he is having, and given injury concerns, LaMelo ball falls.

The Pacers are clearly the winner of the 2020 draft, even though they themselves didn’t draft Haliburton, they walk away with the best player in the draft on his rookie contract.

The Warriors are the clear losers, with Wiseman being taken 2nd and not being anywhere near a top-10 player in the draft.
