Isaiah Collier, USC

Isaiah Collier is a 6-foot-4 point guard from USC and has a wide range of mock drafts. Some publications have him going in the later picks of the lottery, with others seeing him potentially dropping into the 20s. In The Ringer's mock draft, they have Collier going at 19, so there is the chance he drops to the Bucks in the early 20s.

He started 26 of 27 games for the Trojans, averaging 16.3 points, 4.3 assists and 2.9 rebounds on 49 percent shooting from the field and 33.8 percent from three. His physicality is something that separates him apart from many point guards and enhances his ability to finish through contact.

His shooting is solid from within the arc, but his 3-point and free-throw shooting does need work. Defensively, his frame sets him up for success to be physical when guarding on-ball, and his ability to lock in and rip away from defenders led him to averaging 1.5 steals per game for USC.

The biggest concern regarding Collier is the turnovers. He averaged 3.3 turnovers per game, so bringing that down may be tough in the NBA with the way he likes to playmake and fire the ball to his teammates, but it is something that someone like Lillard can help with.

Collier's energy and spirit he plays with are what makes him so great, so the Bucks would not want to take away from that. Instead, it would be about fine-tuning those skills to make him more composed in key moments and cut out the reckless mistakes.

To get Collier, trading up may be the way to go for him if the Bucks really see him as a player for them. He has huge upside, and at 19, there is plenty of potential. He could go well before the Bucks can even get anywhere near him, but still, Isaiah Collier should be on their radar.
