With most teams having just three or four regular-season games left, it's a good time to look back and review the top 10 picks of the 2020 Draft.

Since then, Edwards has averaged 22.9 points on 44.8 percent shooting, 5.6 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 1.4 steals in 34.9 minutes. Edwards scored 42 points again May 5, making him the first rookie with multiple 40-point efforts since Donovan Mitchell in 2017-18.
