A Closer Look At Bronny James as a NBA Draft Prospect
NBA Draft Room Blog
by NBA Draft Room
6d ago
There are two sides to the story when evaluating LeBron James Jr. (Bronny). On the one hand it’s important to erase the famous name from your mind and just watch his game and evaluate him like any other prospect. On the other hand that famous name will potentially bring two huge benefits to whichever team drafts him: huge sales of tickets/sponsorships/merchandise and the chance to bring King James himself to the team. LeBron has stated that he wants to play on the same team as his son and would theoretically go to whichever team drafts him. Now, thinking that just any team in the league will ..read more

2023 NBA Draft Top 60 Big Board – V2

There are always a lot of hard decisions to make when putting together a big board. The toughest ones are at the top and at the bottom of the list. Since the top of the draft always gets so much focus let’s start with a look at the bottom of this top 60 board and the tough decisions about which prospects get those last few spots – and who gets left off the list. The final 3 names on this list are Mike Miles, Terrence Shannon Jr. and Keyontae Johnson.  I like Miles a lot, have some mixed feelings about Shannon Jr. and have always been a big Keyontae fan and graded him as first rounder befo ..read more

The 10 Top Freshmen In High School Basketball – Class of 2026 Recruits

While it’s very early to be looking at the class of 2026 recruits there are a few clear headliners who, at this early point, look like future high major players who could be on their way to the NBA. This group includes the son of a former NBA star, the son of a current NBA coach, a bouncy 6-11 center originally from Nigeria, a burly 6-7 wing with a nose for the basket and a number of other freshmen with elite athletic tools that you just can’t teach. AJ Dybantsa is one of the headliners in the class and at this early point seems like the top player in the 2026 recruiting class. But a lot will ..read more

My Guys – Prospects I’m Irrationally High On In The 2023 Draft

Every draft cycle analysts and draftniks (and draft nerds) have prospects that they just love. These prospect might not be the highest ranked on draft boards and might not even project as NBA starters but love is love, there’s no sense trying to explain it. Sometimes we fall in love with off the radar second round sleepers and sometimes with the top-flight talents. This year a lot of “my guys” are projected in the lottery and mid first round. Plus a few projected second rounders. GG Jackson – PF – South Carolina – GG is a polarizing prospect. He’s the youngest prospect in the draft, which is a ..read more

Upperclassmen Moving Up The Draft Board – The Desmond Bane Effect
NBA Draft Room Blog
by NBA Draft Room
1M ago
The NBA Draft is all about young talent with 18 and 19 year-old players dominating the lottery. But very often these high upside youngsters fail to develop and it’s the older, more polished, more NBA ready players that provide value in the draft. Remember back to the 2019 draft night when Coby White went no.6 overall and then laughed out loud in an interview when he heard that his college teammate Cam Johnson was drafted no.11. It turns out that Johnson was the better draft pick, despite being much older with less perceived upside than White. Who’s laughing now? The following year Desmond Bane ..read more

2023 NBA Draft Big Board – Early Season Edition

Putting together a big board this far ahead of the NBA Draft is a fool’s errand. A lot will change between now and June 22nd and some of the rankings listed below will look downright foolish in a few months. But it’s also a good exercise for tracking the rise and fall of prospects throughout the season and for seeing which players come out of nowhere to end up as high draft picks. Every year we see players rise from relative obscurity into the lottery and I can almost guarantee that it’ll happen again this year. There is probably at least one future 2023 lottery selection that is not listed on ..read more

Draft Buzz: Freshmen Ballers Off To A Fast Start

Jett Howard – SF – Michigan – Jett was a bit overlooked in his recruiting class but has come out of the gates fast and is looking like one of the best freshmen in the land. The sweet-shooting 6-7 wing is playing with a ton of confidence early in his Michigan career. He’s got NBA size, a nice release on his jumper and isn’t afraid to let if fly from downtown. He’s also got a strong frame and can handle contact on the way to the rim. Howard is moving up draft boards and is looking like a first rounder with lottery upside. Gradey Dick – SG – Kansas – Gradey has one of the smoothest jumpers you’l ..read more

State of the 2023 NBA Draft – An Early Look at The Strengths and Weaknesses of the 2023 Draft Class

We’re 9 months out from the 2023 NBA Draft and there is already a lot we know about this draft class -and a lot that we still need to find out over the coming basketball season and the ensuing draft season. We already know for certain that this is a special draft class. It’s not hyperbole to say it’ll be regarded as one of the best in this generation. Of course it starts at the top with the elite talents of Victor Wembanyama and Scoot Henderson but there is also impressive depth across many positions in this class and a few other star (potential superstar) talents. This class has a diverse mix ..read more

2023 NBA Draft Sleepers – Underrated Draft Prospects Ready to Shine

We all know the big names at the top of the 2023 draft class: Wemby, Scoot, Whitehead etc.but in this post I want to highlight a few names that don’t show up in most early 2023 mock drafts but who deserve to start getting some recognition and should be on your watch list. Jalen Warley – PG – Florida State – Warley is one of my favorite under the radar prospects. The 6-6 sophomore didn’t get huge minutes last year as a freshman and he’s not terribly flashy when he is on the court but you can see the upside in the way he moves, his size for position and his poise with the ball in his hands. He ..read more

The Elite 25 – The Top NBA Prospects In High School Basketball – Fall 2022

1. Cameron Boozer – PF – Miami, FL – HSso. – Heading into his sophomore season there’s a good argument to be made that Cameron Boozer is not only the no.1 player in the 2025 recruiting class but that he’s the top pro prospect in all of high school basketball. The son of former NBA player Carlos Boozer, Cameron is built in the same mold but is far more advanced and has higher upside than his old man. The 6-9 multi-talented forward is a polished offensive player who has pro moves and a NBA ready frame already, as a 15 year old. It’s hard to overstate just how polished and advanced his game is fo ..read more
