  1. Deandre Ayton
    1. Has the potential to be one of the best players in the league at some point in his career. He’s a freak of nature and reminds me of Joel Embiid physically. The man can rebound very well especially on offense. One of the only few question marks is his pick and roll defense. The NBA might not be ready for this once in a decade kind of player.
    2. Karl Anthony Towns
  2. Marvin Bagley III
    1. I fell in love with Bagley ever since his sophomore year of high school when I watched him dominate teenagers. His potential is through the roof. He is one of the most athletic players in the draft and with his size that makes him extremely dangerous. He struggles on defense some with instincts but can really make up for that with his athletic ability.
    2. Amare Stoudemire
  3. Mohamed Bamba
    1. This is another very interesting prospect that has been rising up draft boards of late and I’m starting to believe the hype. His defensive impact is a huge feature for him. He’s got some speed with that length of his which he uses in transition to finish at the rim. There is no doubt that he has one of the highest ceilings in the draft with his length. One thing he needs to work on is his toughness, but his physical attributes will be very hard to pass on.
    2. Rudy Gobert
  4. Luka Doncic
    1. Luka is the most unique and intriguing player in the draft. He can play multiple positions at his 6’8 230 frame. His passing and finishing abilities are insane. Every time I watch him I see a Ben Simmons that can shoot. He is a very intriguing prospect that could potentially help turn a franchise around. But lately, his workouts have been hurting his draft stock so it’ll be interesting to see what happens. I still believe in him because I’ve liked him for awhile now, but if NBA teams are starting to question him then I’m going to start to question him. High-risk high reward
    2. Ben Simmons
  5. Jaren Jackson
    1. Jackson is no doubt the best defensive player in the draft. He has great athletic ability that he can use to size up guys and take them to the rim on offense. The main question mark I see with him is his offensive impact because he really is just a defensive minded guy. He could use some work in the shooting department but it will be interesting to see if it translates. If someone were to take Jaren Jackson and stick him in Mo Bamba’s body, that would be one dangerous player.
    2. Myles Turner
  6. Michael Porter Jr
    1. If you’re looking for high-risk high reward then this is your guy. He would be at basically the top of my board if he didn’t have health concerns. He’s an extremely athletic player that score in a lot of different ways. I keep going back and forth as to whether or not put him in tier one with the top 5 guys I have, but if not he is right up there.
    2. Otto Porter
  7. Trae Young
    1. Trae is not only the best shooter in the draft but also the most fun to watch. The kid can flat out shoot the ball. Jason said earlier this year that this is the first player that Curry has really had a real impact on. He’s not only a shooter though. He has great court vision and can finish at the rim. I don’t think he will ever be that great of a defensive player and also needs to work on taking better shots. I think that will also come with a better team and having NBA players by his side.
    2. Steph Curry/ Trey Burke
  8. Wendell Carter Jr
    1. This is a guy who was overlooked at Duke with Bagley and Allen as the main storylines. Carter is a modern NBA big that can really stretch the floor with his driving ability as a 6’10 center. What he lacks in a little height, he makes up for in his 7’4.5 wingspan. This will be a starter in the league for a long time.
    2. Al Horford
  9. Kevin Knox
    1. Knox is one of the most athletic players in the draft at his 6’9 size with a 7’ wingspan. He is a great scorer that can shoot and get to the rim pretty well. I’m not sure he has totally found his identity, but he has a lot of potential.
    2. Jeff Green
  10. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander
    1. Here is a very intriguing player who is a PG at 6’6 180. He is a very physical player that works well off the pick n roll and can finish at the rim easily. If I’m looking for a guy that still has good potential and can still play a solid role on the team, I’m going to look for him.
    2. Shaun Livingston
  11. Collin Sexton
    1. You will not find a more intense and aggressive player than Collin Sexton in this draft. He is one of the most athletic guards and can finish at the rim with his quickness at getting to the rim. His defensive intensity is crazy, especially on the ball. The three areas of concern are his shooting, his off-ball defense where he can get lazy at times, and his size. Two of those things he can work on, and there are players like an Eric Bledsoe that have been fine in this league with that kind of size. His coach, Avery Johnson, has been quoted saying, “”Here’s a kid we basically have to turn the lights out on in the gym … (b/c) he wants to live in the gym.” I do not want to pass on a work ethic like that.
    2. Eric Bledsoe
  12. Mikal Bridges
    1. If Bridges was an 18-year-old coming out, then he’d be ranked higher on a lot of lists. He is a prototypical 3 and D and has a lot of potential with his physical attributes. His athleticism along with his creating, shooting, and defensive abilities make him an intriguing prospect that has great potential.
    2. Robert Covington
  13. Miles Bridges
    1. Bridges is a guy who can do it all on both sides of the ball. He is thick 6’7 220 that can put the ball on the ground at times and get to the rim. He could use some work on his ball handling and needs to figure out his identity. I think he and Kevin Knox are very relatable in their games, but Knox has much better size and length.
    2. Tobias Harris
  14. Robert Williams
    1. I’m a big fan of Robert Williams. He played the 4 at Texas A&M which should change in the NBA as he will play the 5. A&M didn’t run much pick n roll but when they did with Williams, he excelled. He is also a great shot blocker, especially on the weak side. I see a lot of Clint Capela in him, and I’m a huge fan of Capela. These are two guys that play a really important role but can go unnoticed at times.
    2. Clint Capela
  15. Donte DiVincenzo
  16. Zhaire Smith
  17. Lonnie Walker IV
  18. Aaron Holiday
  19. Troy Brown Jr
  20. Keita Bates-Diop
  21. Kevin Huerter
  22. Gary Trent Jr
  23. Khyri Thomas
  24. Elie Okobo
  25. Jerome Robinson
  26. Mitchell Robinson
  27. Jalen Brunson
  28. Grayson Allen
  29. Jevon Carter
  30. Chandler Hutchison

  1. Deandre Ayton
    1. Player Comp: David Robinson
    2. Ayton is one of the most dominant big men I have seen in college basketball. His huge size and strength combined with his skill set is scary. What makes him so intriguing is his ability to stretch the floor and hit the outside shot. He is going to be dominant in this league for a long time.
  2. Marvin Bagley
    1. Player Comp: Chris Bosh
    2. Bagley is easily one of my top 2 favorite prospects in this draft. His ability to dribble drive, post up, and shoot is what makes him so special. Not to mention his 6’11”. There is literally ZERO chance that Bagley is a bust. He will be a longtime All-Star in this league. I’ll take it a step further and say that he will be a Hall of Famer.
  3. Michael Porter Jr.
    1. Player Comp: Kevin Durant
    2. My second favorite prospect in this draft is Michael Porter Jr. He was the #1 player in the nation in High School. It is too bad he suffered an injury because he would have been special in college. I am not overly worried about his injury. He says that his back has been feeling the best that it has. I think he will turn back into the dominant player that he was. However, I do have a little concern about his back. He can do everything on the court. He acts as a point guard when he dribbles. He is very special.
  4. Jaren Jackson
    1. Player Comp: Kristaps Porzingis
    2. Jackson has one of the highest upsides in this draft class. He is a giant who can also stretch the floor and knock down the three. He isn’t as raw as Bamba, which is why I have him ahead.
  5. Mohamed Bamba
    1. Player Comp: Rudy Gobert
    2. Bamba is a complete mammoth. He is 7’1” with an 8’0” wingspan. That’s insane. He will instantly be a rim protector. If he can develop his shot, he will be scary for opposing teams.
  6. Luka Doncic
    1. Manu Ginobili
    2. I have not seen Doncic play, which is why I am a little weary about him. I know that he is very skillful and can shoot, however, his lack of athleticism is what scares me. I am not all in on Doncic yet. I prefer to take the Blue-blood college players instead of European players that I do not know much about.
  7. Trae Young
    1. Player Comp: Steph Curry
    2. Everyone knows he is a knockdown shooter who can pull up from anywhere. He will instantly bring shooting to any team he plays for. His shot selection and defense need to improve. He has the ceiling of Steph Curry. However, he also has a huge bust factor.
  8. Collin Sexton
    1. Player Comp: Eric Bledsoe
    2. Sexton is the ULTIMATE competitor, which is why I really like him. He has a great attitude and is all about winning. He nearly won in a 3v5 game. His shot selection isn’t the best and he tends to dominate the ball too much.
  9. Mikal Bridges
    1. Player Comp: Otto Porter Jr.
    2. Bridges put on a show in March. He was one of the biggest reasons they won the National Championship. He can shoot it and dribble to the rack. He also has sneaky athleticism. He can be very solid in the NBA.
  10. Wendell Carter Jr.
    1. Player Comp: Al Horford
    2. Why is there so much hype around Wendell Carter Jr? What is so special about him? I saw him play a lot at Duke and all I saw was a big man who only has a post game. He can only back his down guy in the post. He does have sweet post moves, but today’s NBA doesn’t favor post guys. He can’t really shoot. He is athletic, but I am not sure how he is going to fit in with today’s NBA.
  11. Kevin Knox
    1. Player Comp: Gordon Hayward
    2. He is a very skilled wing who can shoot and dribble drive. However, I just wish he had a ‘dawg’ attitude and took over more games. He tended to sit back and be passive. If he can turn that around, he will be a perennial all-star in this league.
  12. Miles Bridges
    1. Player Comp: Jabari Parker
    2. Everyone knows he is SUPER athletic. He’s also a pretty good dunker too…okay he’s an insane dunker. However, I am worried about his ability to shoot the three and take his guy off the dribble. He needs to develop his guard game. However, he will be an instant impact player for any team.
  13. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander
    1. Player Comp: Jrue Holiday
    2. Shai really came alive late in the season for the Wildcats. What I like most about Shai is the way that he took over games and put the team on his back late in the game. He is super competitive and has the chance to be a very solid guard in the NBA.
  14. Robert Williams
    1. Player Comp: DeAndre Jordan or Clint Capela
    2. Robert Williams should have stayed in the draft last year. Although he might still be a lottery pick, he lost a few spots. He is a nightmare on pick and rolls. He can rise up in an instant and slam it home. If he develops a shot and his handles, he will be scary.
  15. Donte DiVincenzo
  16. Lonnie Walker IV
  17. Zhaire Smith
  18. Aaron Holiday
  19. Gary Trent Jr.
  20. Troy Brown
  21. Mitchell Robinson
  22. Khyri Thomas
  23. Keita Bates-Diop
  24. Grayson Allen
  25. Jerome Robinson
  26. Omari Spellman
  27. Chandler Hutchison
  28. De’Anthony Melton
  29. Kevin Huerter
  30. Moritz Wagner
