2020 NBA Draft & Projected Salary
In March 2020, Fitts announced that he'd forgo his senior season at St. Mary's to enter the 2020 NBA Draft, via his personal Twitter account.
The 6-foot-8, 230-pound forward, Malik Fitts played a pivotal role for the Gaels over the past two seasons, starting 67 of 68 games and averaging 32.5 minutes per contest. He averaged 15.9 points, 7.3 rebounds, 1.1 assists, and 1.3 steals during his two years at St. Mary's.
The Power forward is ranked 52nd in 2020 NBA Draft Prospect Ranking by the CBS sports, behind Desmond Bane, Tyler Bey, and Isaiah Joe. In point of fact, media is yet to publish the salary of the 2nd round picks.
However, we can assume the wages of the 52nd pick by comparing it with the previous draftee. The 2019 NBA 52nd draftee, Jalen McDaniels, inked a four year / $6,129,593 contract with the Charlotte Hornets, including $898,310 guaranteed, and an annual average salary of $1,532,398. Hence, Fitts will have a quite similar deal if he goes draft in the upcoming draft.

NBA Player Comparison
P.J. Washington. Fitts is similar to the Charlotte Hornets big man in that they both can work inside and outside of the paint. Washington has no problem working down low while stepping out and hitting a three when needed. Fitts can grow into a similar role and be a serviceable wing/forward at the next level.
