Scouts will be put to work this year during the NCAA tournament, which will host dozens of must-track NBA prospects.
Thirteen of our 14 projected lottery picks will be participating, including the draft’s likely No. 1 overall pick—which we haven’t seen the past two years with Markelle Fultz and Ben Simmons.
The following big board excludes overseas players or those playing in the NIT or CBI. They are ranked on NBA potential and not college basketball impact.
No. 30. Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk (Kansas, SG/SF, Senior)
A 6’8″ wing making 3.1 threes per game at a 45.3 percent clip, Mykhailiuk will lean on his jumper for an NBA contract. He’s having a career year behind the arc, but a tough one inside it, converting just 42.7 percent of his two-point attempts.china nike nfl jerseys cheap
No. 29. Jalen Hudson (Florida, SG, Junior)
Hudson will earn looks for his shooting off the catch (43.6 percent) and dribble (40.7 percent). He doesn’t pass (1.0 assists per game), rebound (3.9) or defend at nike nfl jerseys cheap china a noteworthy level, but his shot-making gives him a chance to stick as a specialist.
No. 28. Gary Trent Jr. (Duke, SG, Freshman)
Trent’s size (6’6″, 209 lbs) and shot-making (85 threes) will give him a chance. He needs to improve his off-the-dribble game and defense. A below-average athlete for an NBA wing, cheap nfl jerseys china nike Trent shoots 41.6 percent inside the arc, and he averages just 1.7 assists and 5.0 rebounds per 40 minutes.
No. 27. Jalen Brunson (Villanova, PG, Junior)
Brunson lacks NBA speed and athleticism, which raises questions about how much of his college success will translate. Some team should be willing to find out with a second-round pick, though if he carries Villanova to the Final Four,cheap nfl nike jersey that could lead to interest from teams in the 20s.
