Magic Pick Former Archbishop Molloy Hoops Star Cole Anthony with 15th Pick in 2020 NBA Draft


It was easy to see that point guard Cole Anthony had NBA potential from his early high school days at Archbishop Molloy in Queens, NY.

Well, last night, the Orlando Magic drafted Anthony 15th overall with its first draft pick, bringing his dream of hitting an NBA hardwood that much closer to reality.

The 6-foot-3, 190-pound Anthony missed two months of North Carolina’s season due to a torn meniscus in his right knee, which required surgery and cost him 11 contests. But it did not thwart the dynamic scorer’s performance, as he averaged 18.5 points, almost six rebounds, and four assists per game in 22 contests, earning himself All-ACC 3rd Team accolades last year.

Anthony, son of 11-year NBA veteran Greg Anthony, spent his senior season at Oak Hill Academy (VA) and made appearances at the McDonald’s All-American Game, Jordan Brand Classic, and Nike Hoop Summit. 

After his spectacular season, high school hoops insiders regarded Anthony as one of the top-three players in the country in his class before becoming a Tarheel.
