1T-Wolves*Cade Cunningham PG – Oklahoma State – HT: 6-8 – WT: 220 – WING: 7-0 1/4 – Fr – The college game doesn’t do justice to Cade’s ability. With NBA talent and spacing his game will open up and his numbers will pop. He lacks an elite first step but checks off every other box. Who should go no.1? Luka lite
2RocketsJalen Green SG – G League Ignite – HT: 6-6 – WT: 180 – WING: 6-7 1/2 – USA01 – Jalen is an elite offensive talent and a world class athlete who scores in bunches. He grades out as a no.1 overall type of prospect and should be a scoring machine from day one. ArticleArticle1Kobe, Eddie Jones+

At this point he lacks an outside shot and isn’t a score-first player but he does everything else at an elite level. His court vision is off the charts and his defense is special. He could break into the top 5. MoreDraymond, Magic
6CavsJonathan KumingaSF – G League Ignite (Congo) – HT: 6-7 – WT: 217 – WING: 7-2 – USA02 – Kuminga is an elite talent who would be a top 3 pick in many drafts.
