|1.||Zion Williamson||Freshman||Duke||6’7″ 285||PF|
While we at Draft Value still believe RJ Barrett has the best potential in the NBA, if the draft was today it would be hard to imagine anyone but Williamson going #1 overall. Barrett still has time to close the gap, but Williamson will no doubt will have the headlines. He remains must see-tv and continues to put up impressive numbers.
Last two games: 25 Points, 10 Rebounds, 2 Blocks, 2 Steals
30 Points, 10 Rebounds, 5 Assists, 1 Block, 4 Steals
|2.||RJ Barrett||Freshman||Duke||6’7″ 285||SG/SF|
If Zion goes #1 overall, Barrett would be the favorite at this point to go #2. If it were not for Zion, he would be a sure thing to go first. Turnovers have been an issue, but as a whole Barrett has had a great season so far while leading Duke with Williamson to the number 1 ranking.
Last 2 Games: 21 Points, 1 Rebound, 4 Assists
13 Points, 9 Rebounds, 4 Assists,1 Block
|3.||Ja Morant||Soph.||Murray State||6’3″ 170||PG|
The player that continue to surprise this season, Morant seems to be a lock to go early in the draft. As of now, he rates out as the best point guard expected to be in the draft this year. Competition is definitely a factor, but he has shown he can play against the bigger schools. d
Last 2 Games: 34 Points, 8 Rebounds, 10 Assists, 1 Block, 2 Steals
26 Points, 4 Rebounds, 18 Assists
|4.||Rui Hachimura||Junior||Gonzaga||6’8″ 225||SF|
Hachimura has continued to improve and has not been playing the game very long, which leads to his high ceiling. He has been efficient this year, his game should extend to the 3 point line in the league. He struggled in his most recent game but had 25 one game earlier, so it shouldn’t be much of a concern.
Last 2 Games: 10 Points, 2 Steals
25 Points, 5 Rebounds, 2 Assists, 1 Block, 1 Steal
|5.||Keldon Johnson||Freshman||Kentucky||6’6″ 211||SG|
Johnson did not play great this past week, with Kentucky losing in a tough game at Alabama. His ceiling is as high as any wing in the draft outside of RJ Barrett. How he leads Kentucky going forward will play a big role in his draft position.
Last 2 Games: 8 Points, 6 Rebounds, 2 Assists
13 Points, 7 Rebounds, 4 Assists, 3 Steals
|6.||Nickeil Alexander-Walker||Soph.||Va. Tech||6’5″ 210||SG/PG|
Virginia Tech has been one of the surprise teams this season and in large part to Alexander-Walker. He played terrible against Georgia Tech, but up to that point he has been a very efficient scorer. He needs to find his position in the league but can play and will fit in somewhere.
Last 2 Games: 4 Points, 4 Rebounds, 6 Assists
25 Points, 3 Rebounds, 2 Steals, 2 Blocks
|7.||Bol Bol||Freshman||Oregon||7’2″ 235||Center|
Bol is out for the season with a foot injury, but the freshman has a unique skill set to go with his size, and he showed enough in his short time to be a top 10 pick.
Last 2 Games: Out For Season
|8.||KZ Okpala||Soph.||Stanford||6’8″ 195||SF|
Okpala’s sophomore jump has been impressive. He was solid this past week, as long as he continues to show his game extends to the 3 point line, expect him to be in lottery consideration.
Last 2 Games: 29 Points, 6 Rebounds, 4 Assists, 1 Steal
12 Points, 8 Rebounds, 2 Assists, 3 Blocks
|9.||Cameron Reddish||Freshman||Duke||6’8″ 218||SF|
Reddish has been disappointing for over a month now, which has no doubt hurt his value as a prospect. It could be do with playing alongside the top two prospects in the draft every night, or he might just be over hyped as a prospect. A team picking in the lottery will take a chance to find out.
Last 2 Games: 10 Points, 2 Rebounds, 1 Assists, 2 Blocks
4 Points, 1 Assist, 2 Steals
|10.||Jarrett Culver||Soph.||Texas Tech||6’5″ 190||SG|
Culver bounced back from an off game against Kansas State, and played well in a win over Oklahoma. He remains an efficient scorer who will be in top ten consideration.
Last 2 Games: 9 Points, 7 Rebounds, 3 Assists, 1 Block
23 Points, 13 Rebounds, 2 Assists, 2 Steals
