Very Early NBA Draft Prospects

The NBA draft is a very exciting thing. Every year some team is able to land the next big star, but what happens when there are multiple stars in one draft class? The answer is simple: the league gets more exciting to watch and maybe reaches an all-time high. With that being said, here are some players to watch out for.

Victor Wembanyama is a great prospect in the NBA draft who some people are saying could be a future HOF player. I believe Victor’s height and athleticism are both unheard of and crazy. With this being said, there are a few problems with Victor, like the fact that he seems a little slim. However, that should not be a problem as some people believe he will mature late like Gannis and be able to end up very built and strong. All in all, this may be one of the greatest players we have ever seen touch the basketball court.

Scoot Henderson is exciting and very athletic, kind of like Ja Morant. I think Scoot and Victor are very close in talent. If Scoot can develop a real jumpshot then he will be a crazy talented player.

Amari Bailey is a special prospect. He played with Bronny James and is one of the biggest difference-makers that his high school has ever had. Now he is at UCLA and I believe he will do very well there. I am happy he chose to go to college and I think it will really benefit him positively.

Tyrese Proctor is another very exciting prospect who I think will be a very early first-round draft choice. He has some strengths at his position; for instance, he is a great passer. The only problem is that he can’t really shoot at an elite level, but he can get himself to the basket. We don’t know much about him yet, so there is more to come from his season at Duke.

Drew Timme isn’t a real prospect, so I don’t know why he plays great and is the best college player in the country. I don’t see why he shouldn’t get a shot in the NBA and I believe that he could be great, but I am not an NBA scout. We will just have to see what lucky team ends up with Drew Timme.
