    It’s about that time… over a month now, time for the latest big board(s)! I’ve been hearing some sort of possible order out there from some of us, would like to see some March Madness mocks/boards on here.. I’ve broken down little cliff notes that quickly gloss over the top prospects. Other prospects with no notes are more on the fringe imo but still on the draft radar. Anyways, this is where I’m at for now:

    0
    Hansen Yang – C – China – 19.0 (Minus Nikola Jokic)
    In the event he’s actually in this draft class he should be considered for the top pick the way he was this year. Doubt the miracle of paperwork goes through. I suspect ultimately he’s a 2025 or somewhere beyond top 10 guy. If he can stay healthy and improve on turnovers, he can be a star. Notably played well against France who had Sarr and company last June.

    1
    Zaccharie Risacher – SG/F – France – 19.2 (Michael Porter, Jr./Ousmane Dieng/Nicolas Batum)
    His handle isn’t quite there yet, but that’s not to say it can’t. His shot and ability to get open are his biggest strengths and he can defend at a high level. High floor, at minimun he’s a 3&D player. Can fit a need for any team. Bourg’s just an average team, however he played well overall in limited minutes. Competition was pretty good he played against.

    Alexandre Sarr – PF/C – France – 19.2 (Minus David Robinson/plus John Henson/minus Anthony Davis)
    Shooting needs work and offensive decisions can be more consistent, but he has good timing in getting to his spots and is a vertical lob threat that can handle the ball some. Defence is great, for his size he has really good footwork and instincts worthy of future All Defensive team. Able to stay in front of quick guards pretty well. Has the tools and skills to be a home run swing pick if he pans out.

    Matas Buzelis – F – Gleague – 19.7 (Lamar Odom/Toni Kukoc)
    Can post up smaller wings and burn bigger players. Possesses good handles and has good all around skills and tools. Was at the top of my board and then got injured early. After the injury, he improved his play as the season went on and showcased what he can do in the GLeague bringing me full circle here again. Long range shooting has been inconsistent. Form is there and it could improve, especially if he stays healthy.

    2
    Ron Holland – F – GLeague – 19.0 (Shaun Marion/Jonathan Kuminga)
    Good player at both ends of the floor. Needs more long range shooting, but can run the floor and cut/drive to the basket. Effective with the game run through him if needed. Won’t be the 1 option in the NBA. A lot of his offense comes from running the floor all the time in transition, often from him creating the opponents’ turnover. Great at getting open in the lanes helping a fast pace game.

    Cody Williams – SG/SF – Colorado – 19.6 (Plus Caris LeVert/RJ Barrett)
    Good efficiency, especially for an athletic wing who cuts to the basket and creates plays. Hasn’t proven he can shoot long range consistently, but maybe could. At times he loses assertiveness. NBA body. PAC12 All Freshman team. Ok but not great NCAA tournament showing.

    3
    Tidjane Salaun – F – France – 18.8 (Trevor Ariza)
    Has potential to play well on both ends of the floor. Shot is improving, good length and tools. Still a bit raw and not the alpha, but should contribute down the road. Very good athlete. Younger prospect.

    Nikola Topic – G – Serbia – 18.9 (Goran Dragic)
    Very good floor general with high IQ for the game. Runs mastery of pick n roll. Shot is still a work in progress. Has played against tougher competition. Has good size for his position. Defense can improve.

    Collin Murray-Boyles – F – South Carolina – 19.1 (Anthony Mason)
    Pretty good at a bit of everything. Rebounds well, plays scrappy defense, sets up the offense like a point forward. His shot is still a work in progress but he’s got a good skill set and brings a lot to the table. All SEC Freshman team. Pretty good showing in the NCAA tournament game, but early exit against Oregon.

    Robert Dillingham – PG – Kentucky – 19.5 (Plus Jared Butler/minus Cason Wallace)
    Solid defender. Capable of leading and offense or being a dynamic scorer within the offense. Plays solid defense. Has a high IQ and just great overall skills. His size is his biggest knock. 2nd Team All SEC along with SEC 6th man of the year. Tournament game he was off and Kentucky was upset by Oakland first round.

    Tyler Smith – PF/C – GLeague – 19.6 (Jalen Smith)
    Progressively got better as the year went on. His shot looks silky smooth. His defense is coming around, but still has areas it can improve. Has good upside based on his track record.

    Stephon Castle – G – UConn – 19.7 (Jalen Rose/Manu Ginobili/Rudy Fernandez)
    Very good handles. Gets solid minutes on a great team. Plays good defense and can guard 3 positions. The shooting range is a bit of a work in progress. Sneaky good athlete and good physical strength. NBA body. Naturally quick on his feet. Big East All Freshman team along with Big East Freshman of the year.

    Isaiah Collier – G – USC – 19.7 (DeAnthony Melton/Tyreke Evans)
    After a slow start to the season, Collier turned it on. It was just a bit to late for USC to be relevant. Collier showed improvements to his shot and showed better pace towards year end. He’s a very good athlete. PAC12 All Freshman team. Although Collier finished well, it wasn’t nearly good enough to even make the tournament.

    Ja’Kobe Walter – G – Baylor – 19.8 (plus Cole Anthony/Keyonte George)
    I had to come back around on Walter, but he played his way back into potential lottery territory with good play. It just took a while for him to bloom. He has a pretty good handle and nice range too. Big 12 All Freshman Team along with Big 12 Freshman of the year. Third team All Big 12. Although Baylor was eliminated by Clemson in the tournament, Walter stepped up that game along with other big games during the season.

    Reed Sheppard – G – Kentucky – 20.0 (Davion Mitchell/Alex Caruso/Jalen Suggs/TJ McConnell)
    An older freshman with size concerns, Sheppard doesn’t fit your prototypical guard in the league today. But most prospects aren’t as efficient at both ends of the floor like him either. USBWA Freshman of the year, SEC Freshman of the year, 2nd Team All SEC. Played and shot terrible in the lone tournament game against Oakland with the first round early exit.

    Kel’el Ware – C – Indiana – 20.1 (Minus Myles Turner/plus Willie Caulie-Stein)
    After a dissapointing season last year, Ware had a solid bounce back season. Notably he outplayed Clingan in both career matchups. Motor is questionable, everything else looks solid this year. 2nd team All Big Ten, Big Ten All Defensive team. Didn’t make the tournament, not on a great team despite having talent there.

    Donovan Clingan – C – UConn – 20.3 (More mobile Walker Kessler)
    Still the same questions as last year. Does he have the stamina? And – can he stay healthy? His free throws can improve. As far as rebounding and blocking shots though, he might be the best in this draft class.

    Jared McCain – G – Duke – 20.4 (plus Seth Curry)
    Showed he has good range, makes good decisions and can flat out play. He won’t overpower you with size or athleticism, but can still be a real asset to a team. Makes good decisions and handles the ball good enough. All ACC Rookie team.

    Kyshawn George – SG/SF – Miami(FL) – 20.6 (Deni Avdija)
    I don’t know about you, but I feel a little bit of only saw flashes of what Kyshawn George could do. It seemed he didn’t get enough minutes. He did show he can score and has versatility within the game. Not a big body of work to look at, but seems to do everything well. Should have had more minutes and didn’t play on a tournament team.

    Dalton Knecht – SG/SF – Tennessee – 23.2 (Glen Rice)
    One of the best flat out players in college basketball. Knecht can shoot and Knecht can score. He isn’t great at anything else, but good enough. But his scoring ability is special if you need a bucket on about anyone. Consensus first team All American. SEC POY. SEC Newcomer of the year. First team All SEC.

    4
    Yves Missi – C – Baylor – 19.6 (better dribbling DeAndre Jordan/Kwame Brown)
    Quite a bit raw. Pretty solid rebounder and very good shot blocker. Has eye opening athleticism. Very good vertical lob threat with good instincts. Needs help with shooting range and free throws although free throws are getting better. Can dribble some. Big 12 All Defensive team, Big 12 All Freshman team. Missi outplayed some tough competition this year. He played atrocious against Clemson in Baylor’s tournament loss to Clemson.

    Malique Lewis – F – GLeague – 19.7 (minus Franz Wagner)
    Plays well on both ends of the floor. Has a pretty good and improved shot. Played well for Mexico City this year. Should be able to get minutes based on his defense and efficiency. Under the radar in draft process.

    Juan Nunez – PG – Spain – 20.0 (taller Jameer Nelson/plus Derek Fisher)
    Underrated defender and great at being the floor general. Playing well against proven competition. A bit under the radar. One of the better passers in this draft.

    Justin Edwards – SG/SF – Kentucky – 20.5 (James Young/Corey Maggette)
    An older freshman who took a while to get going. But he might have started getting hot at the right time. He’s a solid athlete that can end up being a solid 3&D guy in theory. Had an off day shooting in the NCAA tournament in that loss to Oakland like many of his teammates.

    Kyle Filipowski – PF/C – Duke – 20.6 (taller Luis Scola)
    Good shooter and improved on the defensive end. Still not massive or the greatest athlete, but good enough. Has a nice motor and a good feel for the game. Good facing up. Consensus 2nd team All American, First team All ACC.

    DaRon Holmes – PF/C – Dayton – 21.9 (Clifford Robinson)
    Long range shooting has improved a bit through the year. Out works his opponents with rebounding and defense. Has a great motor and gives anyone a test. Good strength, instincts and footwork. Underrated passer. Consensus 2nd team All American, First team All Atlantic 10, Atlantic 10 co POY. Although Dayton was whooped by a better team in Arizona, Holmes wasn’t the reason. He did what he could against a better team.

    Dillon Jones – SF – Weber State – 22.6 (bigger Jaime Jaquez)
    Plays a lot of bully ball against more wirey athletic wings. Knows how to play the game of basketball well. Reads mismatches good. Needs to improve his shooting range. Does everything else. First team All Big Sky and Big Sky POY. His team overall was average and didn’t make the NCAA tournament. He was still one of the better college basketball players this year and did really well last year at the combine.

    5
    Pacome Dadiet – SG/SF – Germany – 18.1 (Bruno Coboclo)
    Very raw prospect and the youngest prospect in this year’s draft process. Very good athlete. Good potential and good tools. Raw skills but long with improving handle and range. Youngest prospect in the draft.

    Ulrich Chomche – C – Cameroon – 18.4 (Serge Ibaka)
    Younger prospect with good upside. Has good tools and good instincts, especially on the defensive end. Overall offense still a work in progress. Very raw, athletic vertical lob threat. Younger prospect.

    Bub Carrington – G – Pitt – 18.9 (plus Russ Smith)
    Younger prospect who is a bit undersized, but has the speed and athleticism to make up for it. Has shown flashes of being able to be the alpha. Needs shooting and less turnovers. Good at creating space. ACC All Rookie team. Very streaky player. Ended the season on a high note. Didn’t make the NCAA tournament but played well against UNC in a loss in the ACC tournament.

    JT Toppin – PF/C – New Mexico – 19.0 (minus Andrei Kirilenko)
    A younger prospect who’s improving in many areas throughout the year. Gets a lot for his thin frame. Long range shooting is getting there and moves well. Sneaky athlete with good instincts. Younger prospect. Shot terrible against a tough veteran Clemson front court and was eliminated early in the tournament.

    Johnny Furphy – F – Kansas – 19.6 (Minus Bojan Bogdanovic)
    Very good shooter and very high IQ. Needs to improve defensively a bit, but rarely turns the ball over. Seems to get to his spots and nail the open shots. A bit of a tweener wing/forward. Can improve his dribbling. Big 12 All Freshman team. Was held in check by Gonzaga in his tournament exit. Doesn’t have any alpha in him. Can’t carry a team, just get open shoot and not make mistakes.

    Kwame Evans, Jr. – F – Oregon – 19.8 (minus Josh Smith)
    Very athletic talent. Shot could improve a bit, but it’s a work in progress. Plays very well defense and hustles on the floor. Doesn’t need to have plays designed for him and still gets the job done. Not assertive on offense and at times lost in the flow of the game on that end. Finished the season very poorly. His offense literally dissappeared in the PAC12 tournament and the NCAA tournament despite the team going far.

    Melvin Ajinca – SG/F – France – 19.9 (plus Stanley Johnson)
    Good motor, good defender. Versatile overall player. Has room for improvement in his shooting. Still a bit raw. Good matching up against multiple archetypes.

    Zvonimir Ivisic – C – Kentucky – 20.7
    Not bad mobility. Has good instincts especially as a shot blocker. Has the skills – needs to put it together. Needs to stay out of foul trouble still. Imo was probably the best big on the team and didn’t play enough minutes to prove it. He did come to the team late though and wasn’t in his best shape. Kentucky was eliminated early and he didn’t show much in the tournament.

    Zach Edey – C – Purdue – 21.1 (Minus Yao Ming)
    Huge. I mean the biggest prospect since Tako Fall but much more productive on the offensive end. Reads screens and dumps off passes well. Not todays’ prototypical player. Consensus First team All American, Big Ten POY, First team All Big Ten, Big Ten All Defensive team.

    Hunter Sallis – G – Wake Forest – 21.2
    Highly improved this last year with a change of scenery. Displayed good play on both ends of the floor with flashes of athleticism as well. He looked much more comfortable this yaer. Can he play good if he doesn’t have the keys? First team All ACC. Finished on a high note, albeit in an NIT loss to Georgia.

    Wooga Poplar – SG – Miami(FL) – 21.4 (Malik Beasley/Rex Chapman)
    Pure shooter with a silky smooth stroke. Has some athletic talent as well. Defense can improve. Good at getting to his spots. Not the most versatile player but has great range. Missed a few games at the wrong time this year which didn’t help Miami U’s tournament chances or his stock.

    Jaylon Tyson – SG/SF – Cal – 21.6 (minus Desmond Bane)
    Good at getting open and knocking down the shot. Can create his own shot too. Gets to his spots well. Average defender. Provides draft value in this draft with style of play. First team All PAC12. Didn’t play on a team that was tournament worthy.

    Ajay Mitchell – G – UC Santa Barbara – 21.9
    Very much improved shooting range from last year. Just an average defender, but does about everything else. Handles the ball well, passes good, reads the plays well. Efficient. Not the greatest competition. Played well despite the embarrassing loss to Cal State Northridge to end the season.

    Devin Carter – G – Providence – 22.3 (Tony Allen/Terry Porter)
    Improving shooter. Very good hustle player. Good at handling the rock and even initiating some offense, solid scorer. Great defender and plays bigger and tougher than his position. Good athlete. First team All Big East, Big East POY. Lost early in the first round of the NIT despite playing well.

    Coleman Hawkins – PF/C – Illinois – 22.6
    High IQ big. Does a bit of everything. His calling cards are a stretch big who can pass and play defense. Pretty stellar combination of traits. Has trouble against bigger skilled bigs and awkward dribbling left. Third team All Big Ten.

    Terrence Shannon, Jr. – SG/SF – Illinois – 23.9
    Shown improvement over time developing at the college level. Plays good defense and is a scoring machine. Rape charge is tainting his stock some. Oder prospect. Third team All American, First team All Big Ten, Big Ten tournament MOP.

    Jaedon LeDee – PF/C- Sand Diego State – 24.1
    Improved his shooting range this year, again time will tell if he’s consistent. Solid play on both ends. Carried a good team. Brings a lot to the table. Turnovers could go down. Older prospect. First team Mountain West, Second team All American in majority. Gave it all he had against all mighty UConn after losing to them in the Sweet 16.

    6
    Aaron Bradshaw – C – Kentucky – 20.1
    Good athlete with good tools and potential on the defensive end. Gets into foul trouble at times. Still very raw. Shooting range is a work in progress from simple free throws and beyond. Has the upside but not yet. Never really got it going consistently with all the big bodies they had on the Kentucky squad. Didn’t get great minutes and was a lot of times the odd man out.

    Tyler Kolek – G – Marquette – 21.4 – (taller Payton Pritchard/smaller Ty Jerome)
    Very high IQ for the game and can set up the offense. Great pass first guard with a good stroke. Quality team defender. Generally makes the right play in the moment. Not your greatest athlete but gets the job done. First team All Big East, Consensus 2nd team All American. After the injury he came in time to have a great tournament run despite him and Marquette upset by NC State in their matchup.

    Trevon Brazile – C – Arkansas – 21.5
    Crazy athlete should be a riser come combine time and is known for his rim rattling dunks. Good defender with pretty good instincts. Shooting range is improving. Played for an underwhelming team despite talent, not a tournament team.

    Oso Ighodaro – F/C – Marquette – 22.0 (Minus Jaylin Williams/Trayce Jackson-Davis taller and less athletic)
    A bit limited offensively. Somewhat of a vertical lob threat. Has pretty good handles for his size. Good defender. Good passing big. Doesn’t have much shooting range at least at this point. 2nd team All Big East.
    Had a good but not great tournament. Did have some problems matching up against DJ Burns, Jr. and NC State who eliminated Marquette in the NCAA tournament.

    Grant Nelson – PF/C – Alabama – 22.3
    Ok shot, but shooting range is lacking. Sometimes he gets lost in games and not assertive enough. Has good defense against most bigs. Has problems with skilled guys even bigger than him. Crazy athlete.

    Ryan Kalkbrenner – C – Creighton – 22.4
    Good size. Solid shot blocker and has a jumper. Occasionally he can even pop a three. He’s not very quick, but knows his angles. Good IQ and feel for the game. Knows his limits. Big East Defensive POY, Second team All Big East. Had a solid tournament run and even a good sweet 16 game despite getting knocked out of the NCAA tournament to a good Tennessee team.

    Tristan Da Silva – F – Colorado – 23.1
    Average defender. High IQ player. Good shot selection and shooting range. Can do a little bit of everything pretty good offensively. Good but not a great athlete. Older prospect. 2nd team All PAC12. Played well in his last game in a tight matchup against a tough Marquette team.

    Kevin McCullar, Jr. – SG/SF – Kansas – 23.2
    Good all around player. Turns the ball over too much and not the greatest shooter. Good defender and good but not great athlete. High IQ. Injury at the wrong time. Older prospect. Third team All American, First team All Big 12. Kansas one can argue didn’t get past Gonzaga because they didn’t have McCullar.

    Baylor Scheierman – G/SF – Creighton – 23.8
    Good rebounder and passer. High IQ. Shooting range is there. Not the greatest defender, infact at times a liability. Not the greatest athlete. Good size. Older prospect. Third team All American, First team All Big East. Had a very good tournament run and even went head to head against Dalton Knecht and that went pretty evenly, although Knecht had the last laugh as Scheierman and Creighton were knocked out by Tennessee.

    Enrique Freeman – SG/SF – Akron – 23.9
    Improved his shooting range this year, but time will tell if he’s consistent. Maybe best pound for pound rebounder in draft. Did everything well this year on both ends. Turnovers could go down. Older prospect. First team All MAC, MAC tournament MVP, MAC POY, MAC All Defensive team. Freeman gave it all he had and did well despite getting pounced by Creigthon in the NCAA tournament.

    Tyon Grant-Foster – SG/SF – Grand Canyon – 24.3
    Very good defender. Good at creating offense. Turnovers can go down. Needs more consistent shooting from long range. A bucket getter. Health concerns. Older prospect. First team All WAC, WAC POY. He finished the year strong and even pulled off an NCAA upset against a good St. Mary’s team. He also went off on Alabama before GCU was eliminated that game.

    Saint Thomas – SG/SF – Northern Colorado – (Plus Lamine Diane/Plus Justin Champagnie) – TRANSFER PORTAL
    Very good defender and rebounder. Good at moving the ball and can get buckets. Long range shooting is a work in progress still. Does about everything else. First team All Big Sky. Didn’t play on a tournament worthy team. Probably won’t declare since he entered the transfer portal.

    anywho, hope you were somewhat entertained at least. Would love to see where others are at or any feedback.

    Great write up as always and it shows how open the draft is given the number of players you have in tier 3 who could go from top 6 down to about 20th.

    If Yang did declare it would make things interesting especially if the Chinese authorities would prefer him on certain teams. He’d potentially rival Sarr as the best big in the draft. Memphis we’ve said probably want a big so could be an option there. Houston via the Nets at 8 also jumps out as Yao’s old team. The Chinese would be keen on that I’d feel. Also if the Spurs do get the pick via Raptors then a twin towers of Yang and Wemby before you even consider the coaching he’d get there.

      That’s the other side of it for Yang, what would Chinese authorities have as far as controlling his contract, gaining his rights, etc. Who knows when he can even declare… seems like that could be messy.

      It’s definitely a crapshoot of a draft this year. Wondering what you would change to the board? What’s your top 30ish look like atm???

    I’ll look to get a top 30/first round together in the next few days whether this is a BPA listing or players in different tiers I don’t know. Also waiting to see who is likely to declare or stay in college.

    Yang could go any year between now and 2027 so I’ll probably leave him out of this mock.

    I’m waiting until the regular season ends/Play ins and then I’ll do a full mock and have a real look at the positions. I’ll then adjust it after the draft lottery.
