PF – Auburn – HT: 6-10 – WT: 220 – WING: 7-0 – Fr – The Magic land the no.1 pick and will have a hard choice between Jabari and Chet. Jabari has a chance to be an elite scoring forward and would pair well with the young Magic core. Big Board #1
PF – Duke – HT: 6-10 – WT: 250 – WING: 6-10 – Fr – The Rockets might be disappointed but can still land a big time player at a position of need. Paolo and Sengun would be an interesting frontcourt with a lot of talent. 1on1 Interview
PF – Iowa – HT: 6-8 – WT: 215 – WING: NA – So – The Pacers seem like an ideal fit for Murray. He’s a bit older than the others but still has a lot of upside to develop into and has a skill-set that looks very NBA ready.
SG – G League Ignite (Australia) – HT: 6-8 – WT: NA – WING: NA – Int.03 – The Pelicans are building something special and could look to add the toolsy PG/SG Daniels to the mix. He has a ton of upside and has reportedly grown to 6-8. International Elite 15
SF – New Zealand Breakers (France) – HT: 6-9 – WT: NA – WING: 7-0– Int.03 – The Spurs are rebuilding with young and can swing for the upside here. Dieng had an up and down season in the NBL but his skills are tantalizing.
SF – Duke – HT: 6-6 – WT: 200 – WING: 7-0 – Fr – The Wizards are stuck in no-man’s-land and need to nail this draft pick. Griffin Jr. is a lights-out shooter with upside but there are some health concerns and questions about him regaining his explosiveness.
SG – Wisconsin – HT: 6-5 – WT: 195 – WING: NA– So – The Thunder have been drafting for upside in recent years but could go with the safer, pro-ready pick in Davis who would help establish a winning culture. He might not be a superstar at the next level but has a high floor.
PG – Kentucky – HT: 6-3 – WT: 180 – WING: NA – Fr – The Cavs could pair TyTy with Garland to form an awesome young backcourt. TyTy was banged up late in the season but looked like a top 10 pick before that.
PF – Baylor (England) – HT: 6-9 – WT: 230 – WING: NA – Fr – If Sochan falls to no.15 the Hornets should waste no time making the pick. He showed an elite skill-set this season and emerged as one of the most intriguing prospects in this draft.
SF – Baylor – HT: 6-6 – WT: 205 – WING: NA – Fr – A versatile player who brings it on both ends of the court. Has elite above-the-rim ability, is a world class defensive player and underrated passer. 1on1 interview
SG – Nebraska – HT: 6-7 – WT: 179 – WING: NA – Fr – A long, wiry athlete with a smooth game and intriguing upside. Has awesome bounce and above the rim ability. Nebraska hasn’t had a prospect like this in a long time.
