Top 2024 NBA Draft Prospects

Adem Bona
UCLA | 6’ 8.25” | 243.2 lbs| PF-C | So

Bona is a player that’s often sent to the bench due to foul trouble. He currently holds UCLA’s single season record for personal fouls. However, he also often draws fouls and is very productive when he’s able to stay on the floor. UCLA finished their season with a 16-17 overall record. Interesting but random fact: The Bruins went 7-1 when Bona scored 16 or more points and shot at least 50% from the field.

At the next level Bona currently projects as a infectious energy guy with potential to provide minutes at both the power forward and center positions. In addition to bringing energy and emotion, the team that drafts Bona will add length, positional size at the four, athleticism, strength, a very aggressive offensive rebounder and a capable shot blocker to their roster. 

The 21 year old Bona’s 7’3.75 wingspan is longer than any other power forward prospect in this year’s class. His 40 inch max vertical ranks the highest of all center prospects in this draft. Bona is currently projected as an early second round draft pick. 
Matas Buzelis
G League Ignite | 6’ 8.75” | 197 lbs| SF | 19 yr

The son and grandson of three former basketball players. His mother, father and grandfather all played professionally in Lithuania. Buzelis believes his purpose is to become the best basketball player he can be. 

He chose the NBA G League Ignite route over going to a big name college. Buzelis believed playing with NBA rules against top talent provided an advantage that better prepared him for the next level. 

At the next level Buzelis is small forward with the potential to become a well rounded two way player. The team that drafts him will add a skilled wing, versatility, athleticism, playmaking, rebounding at the three slot and an intriguing prospect with promising defensive potential to their roster. 

Buzelis is currently projected as a lottery pick. Not bad for a 19 year old that didn’t initially like basketball and wanted to become a gamer. Guess you can say his wish to become a gamer is coming true. Maybe not in the way he initially hoped but taking his 6’ 10” wingspan, 38 inch vertical and the rest of his game to the NBA isn’t a bad consolation prize. 
Devin Carter 
Providence | 6′ 2.25″ | 193 lbs| PG-SG| Jr

Devin is cut from the NBA cloth. His dad Anthony Carter was an NBA player for 13 years and is currently an Assistant Coach for the Memphis Grizzlies. So naturally fundamental soundnesses shows out in certain areas of Devin’s play. 

The Providence Friars won 21 games and lost 14 during the 2023-24 season. Interesting fact: When Carter shot above 57 percent from 2pt range his team won 15 games and only lost 4. Not sure if that means anything but it sounds good. 

At the next level Devin is a combo guard that impacts the game on both ends of the floor when he reaches his prime. For an NBA roster, in addition to being a two way player that takes pride in defending, Carter adds athleticism, scoring, offensive efficiency, rebounding and trips to the to the charity stripe.

At 22 years old, Carter is one of the older prospects if this year’s draft class. However he’s also one of the prospects that has the potential to become an All-Star. Carter is currently projected as a lottery to mid first round pick… Scouting Report
Stephon Castle
UCONN | 6′ 6.5″ | 210 lbs| SG| Fr

In just his freshman season, Castle is fresh off of winning an NCAA Championship. It was a run that required dedication and sacrifice. A sacrifice that Castle feels he made for the good of his team. 

That sacrifice was playing off the ball instead of running the point which he believes is his true position. Castle wants the ball in his hands and the opportunity to shoot off the dribble at the next level. He also aspires to become an All NBA level defender within the next couple of years. 

As of right now Castle is an athletic two way player that consistently plays hard. He adds potential, positional size, efficient offense, offensive rebounding, length in the backcourt and defense to an NBA roster. Castle possesses a 6’ 9” wingspan and is currently projected as a Top-10 pick. 
Donovan Clingan
UCONN | 7′ 1.75″| 282 lbs| C| So

As a tribute to his late mother Stacey Porrini, Donovan Clingan wears the number 32. She also gives him motivation to keep getting better at the game. Donovan simply wants to make his mother proud, as evidenced by his commanding presence on the court and his influence on the game.

Clingan finished the 2022–23 campaign as an NCAA National Champion after just one season as a freshman. He decided to return to school for his sophomore season to further hone his skills. Thus far his decision is paying off big time. Clingan is headed to the Final Four once again. He’s also currently projected as a lottery pick in the 2024 NBA Draft… Scouting Report
Isaiah Collier
USC | 6′ 2.50″ | 204.6 lbs| PG| Fr

Since the sudden and tragic passing of his cousin Khalil Hardison, the motto “Live like Khalil” has been Collier’s driving force. A driving force that brings out joy and the best in him. Collier is at his best when slashing and getting his teammates involved.

USC recorded an overall record of 15-18 for the season. However, when Collier tallied 4 assists or more he led the Trojans to a 12-4 record… Scouting Report
Tristan Da Silva
Colorado | 6’ 8.25” | 216.8 lbs| PF-SF | 23 yrs

Role: Score, shoot, pass and commit to defense: 

A skilled, versatile and athletic forward with two-way potential. Offensively he’s a three level scorer. Da Silva can effectively create his own offense or use off ball movement to finish plays at the basket or create scoring opportunities from close and midrange. However, from long distance he’s primarily a catch & shoot guy.

Da Silva has defensive potential. He’s gifted with the positional height at the PF slot and positional height and weight at the SF slot. Also has some athleticism and  quickness to get into passing lanes for steals.

Draft Projection: Mid-First Round Pick
Rob Dillingham
Kentucky | 6′ 1″ | 176 lbs| PG| Fr

It’s hardly surprising that Rob Dillingham idolizes Kobe Bryant, given his knack for scoring. While he excels as an off-ball shooter, Dillingham truly shines when the ball is in his hands. Transitioning into a scoring point guard at the next level will unlock his full potential by ensuring the ball is in his hands.

Currently touted as a top-10 pick, Dillingham stands as a compelling contender for the number one spot in the 2024 NBA Draft, particularly in a class marked by uncertainty. With a career trajectory reminiscent of former Wildcat Tyrese Maxey, the stage is set for Dillingham’s ascent…Scouting Report
Nikola Djurisic
Mega MIS | 6’ 7” |208.8 lbs| SF/SG | 20 Yr

Both of his parents were professional athletes. Vesna Čitaković, his mother, played volleyball for Serbia. Duško Đurišić, his father, was a former Montenegrin soccer player. Nikola followed suit and played professional basketball in Europe. 

Djurisic’s Mega MIS team finished their 2023-24 ABA season with a 18-12 overall record. Interesting fact: Mega Basket went 8-1 when he blocked at least one shot and scored 10 points in a game. At the next level Djurisic reeks the potential to become a legit two way player at the small forward or shooting guard slot. 

In addition to adding positional size the team that drafts Djurisic will add a player that makes trips to the line, brings three level scoring, defensive potential, shooting potential, slashing potential and passing/playmaking potential to their roster. Djurisic is a 20 year old prospect that is currently projected as a mid second round pick. 
Ryan Dunn
Virginia | 6’ 6.25” | 213.6 lbs| PF-SF | So

Ryan entered UVA as walk-on but left as a top NBA Draft prospect. The Dunn’s are an athletic family. His brother Justin Dunn pitches in the MLB and Ryan’s rise will soon have him dunking in the NBA. 

Ryan’s ascent was instrumental to Virginia’s success. He helped guide the Cavaliers to a 23-11 overall record for the 2023-24 season. Interesting fact: Dunn’s team went 15-3 in games that he grabbed 5 or more defensive rebounds.

At the next level Dunn is a solid role player with the potential to become a defensive specialist. In addition to a solid versatile defender, the team that drafts Dunn will add length, athleticism, offensive rebounding, shot blocking and a lob threat to their roster. 

At 21 years old Dunn has a 7’1.5” wingspan and a 38.5 inch vertical. As one of the best defensive prospects of this year’s draft class he’s currently projected as an early second round pick. 
Zach Edey
Purdue| 7′ 3.75″ |299 lbs| C

Zach Edey is only in his seventh year of playing organized basketball. However, he just keeps getting better and better at a blistering pace. He started playing during his sophomore year of high school and now he’s competing in the 2024 NCAA Championship game. 

His 2024 NCAA Final Four run with the Purdue Boilermakers has made one thing very clear. Edey brings attributes to the table that can’t be learned or taught at any level of play. Yet the basketball world is divided on Edey’s chances for succeeding at the next level.

Many feel that he is deserving of a lottery pick. Many others believe that he will not succeed on an NBA landscape full of modern day big men. Currently he’s projected as a late first round pick in the 2024 NBA Draft…Scouting Report
Kyle Filipowski
Duke | 6’ 10.75” | 229.8 lbs| PF | So

During the 2023 offseason Filipowski dealt with rehabbing from arthroscopic surgery on both of his hips. The recovery process prevented him from working on his body and craft. However this offseason is different. He’s physically healthy and focused on a lofty goal of winning the NBA Rookie of the Year award while helping his team win games. 

Filipowski is no rookie when it comes to helping his team win games. Duke finished their 2023-24 season with a 27-9 overall record. Cool fact: The Blue Devils went 22-4 when Filipowski tallied two or more assists. 

At the next level Filipowski is a big with decent playmaking skills for his size. He also has the potential to become an efficient stretch the defense or pick & pop option. The team that drafts Filipowski will also add positional size, offensive rebounding, a big that can put the ball on the floor a bit and create his shot to their roster. 

At 20 years old Filipowski is one of the best power forward prospects in this year’s draft. He’s currently projected as a late first round pick. 
Trentyn Flowers
Adelaide 36ers | 6’ 6.5” | 201.4 lbs| SF-SG | 19 Yr

Flowers only played more than 20 minutes three times during Adelaide’s 12-16 Hungry Jack’s 2023-24 NBL season. During those three contests Flowers showed what he can do when given a real opportunity to produce. The 36ers won two out of the three games and Flowers had his best performances of the season. He shot better than 45%, scored at least 13 points and worked the glass in each of those contests.

At the next level Flowers projects as a versatile athletic energy guy with tons of potential. He can provide minutes at the small forward and shooting guard positions. In addition to his potential, athleticism and energy, he’ll add positional size, shooting potential, defensive potential, scoring, slick passing, ball handling and get on the offensive glass for the team that adds him to their roster. 

Flowers has a 42 inch max vertical, a 6’ 8.25” wingspan and a 8’ 4.5” standing reach. At 19 years old he’s one of the most athletic and underrated prospects in this year’s class. Flowers is currently projected to go undrafted. But don’t sleep on this kid he has the talent and potential of a lottery pick. 
Enrique Freeman
Akron | 6’ 7.25” | 212 lbs| PF | Sr

Freeman came to Akron as a walk-on. When he left his name received mentions in the same breath as David Robinson and Armando Bacot. Freeman tied the record set by Robinson and Bacot for the most single season double-doubles in NCAA history with 31.

Akron finished their 2023-24 season with a 24-11 overall record. Interesting fact: The Zips went 17-4 when Freeman shot better than 54% from the field. Freeman led his team to the NCAA Tournament where they were defeated by Creighton in the first round of 64. For fun, can you guess if Freeman shot higher or lower than 54% against Creighton? 

At the next level Freeman is a role player with the potential to become a solid double-double big. In addition to his double-double potential, the team that drafts Freeman will add length, rebounding, work on the offensive glass, trips to the line, a capable shot blocker and pick & pop/stretch the defense potential to their roster. 

The 23 year old Freeman is one of the older prospects in this year’s draft. However with a 7’2” wingspan and a 9’ 0” standing reach he’s also one of the longest power forward prospects in this class as well. Freeman is currently projected as a late second round pick. 
Ron Holland
G League Ignite | 6′ 6.5″ | 196.8 lbs| SF

Holland comes from a very competitive family with a “we don’t lose mentality”. This couldn’t be more true especially after his G League Ignite squad only won a total of six games during the 2023-24 regular season and Showcase Cup. Despite the won loss record Holland is still winning big time. He’s one of the best 2024 NBA Draft prospects.

Holland is an athletic small forward with a high motor. A prospect that will provide his team with a slasher, versatile defender, decent free throw shooter and a solid rebounder at the small forward spot. He’s currently projected as a Top-10 pick in this year’s class.
DaRon Holmes II
Dayton | 6’ 8.75” | 236.2 lbs| F/C | Jr

Coming into the 2023-24 season Holmes believed that if he and his team took care of their business the NBA Draft would be there at the end of the journey. By the end of the season the Dayton Flyers broke a six year streak by making the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2017. 

Dayton finished their season with a solid 25-8 record. They went 11-0 in games that Holmes made at least 9 field goals while shooting over 55% or better from the field. In addition to his defense, Holmes is a player that’s capable of having a positive impact on the game when put in a position to succeed and provided a decent amount of opportunities to put the ball in the basket.  

At the next level Holmes is power forward/center with the potential to be a two way player. The team that drafts him is adding length, athleticism, inside-out offensive potential, offensive rebounding, trips to the line and defense to their roster. He’s currently projected as a late first round to early second round pick. 
AJ Johnson
Illawara Hawks (NBL) | 6’ 4.25” | 167 lbs| SG |19 yrs (turns 20 in December)

Role: Develop & reach potential: 

An athletic shooting guard that passes the eye test and shows lots of potential. He’s closest to contributing as a scorer that also creates for others. Drafting Johnson is taking a bet on being able to fully develop his potential to score, drive & dish and defend. Has also has the positional height for a shooting guard but needs to develop his body and strength. 

Draft Projection: Mid-Second Round Pick
Dalton Knecht
Tennessee | 6’ 5.25” | 212.2 lbs| SF | Sr

His talent took him on a journey from high school to junior college. Then to the Big Sky conference before landing in the SEC. However his talent wasn’t the only thing growing on his journey. Along the way an incremental growth spurt took him from a 5’ 4” point guard as a freshman in high school to the 6’ 5” small forward that we know today. 

Tennessee finished their season with a 27-9 overall record. Interesting but random fact: The Volunteers went 22-4 in games that Knecht committed less than 3 turnovers. He led his team to the Elite where they fell to Purdue. Far from the reason Tennessee lost in the Elite 8 but for fun, can you guess how many turnovers Knecht had in this contest?

At the next level Knecht is wing with the potential to be a consistent offensive threat. The team that drafts him will add a shooter, three level scorer, athleticism, a wing that’s comfortable putting the ball on the deck, trips to charity stripe and a prospect that can provide some minutes at both the small forward and two guard slot. 

At 23 years old Knecht is one of the more seasoned prospects of this year’s draft. However, with a 39 inch max vertical he’s also one of the most explosive prospects. Hence, part of the reason he’s currently projected as a lottery pick. 
Tyler Kolek 
Marquette | 6’ 1.25” | 196.6 lbs| PG | Sr

He’s the Marquette Golden Eagles’s second All-Time leader in assists. Marquette finished the 2023-24 season with a 27-10 overall record. Interesting fact: the Golden Eagles won 16 games and lost only 1 when Kolek tallied 7 assists or more in a contest. 

At the next level Kolek is a lefty point guard that will effortlessly run the offense and distribute the basketball. In addition to being a distributing point guard the team that drafts Kolek will add efficient offense, playmaking, slashing and shooting to their roster. 

At 23 years old Kolek has a 6’ 1.25” wingspan, 7’ 11” standing reach and a 34 inch max vertical. He’s currently projected as a late first round draft pick. 
Jonathan Mogbo
USF | 6’ 6.25” | 217.2 lbs| PF | Jr

The route towards the NBA has been a long one for Mogbo. His journey took him from two years of junior college to Missouri State before landing at the University of San Francisco. Mogbo led his San Francisco team to a 23-11 overall record for the 2023-24 season. Interesting fact: The Dons went 17-4 when Mogbo scored 14 or more points and grabbed at least 2 offensive rebounds.

At the next level Mogbo is a role player with the potential to become a double-double power forward. In addition to his double-double potential, the team that drafts Mogbo will add length, athleticism, offensive efficiency, rebounding, offensive glass work, a lob threat, a finisher around the basket, a forward with the vision to survey the floor and pass from the perimeter and versatile defensive potential to their roster. 

At 22 years old Mogbo comes up slightly shorter than the other power forward prospects in the height department. But his 7’2” wingspan and 9’ 0.5” standing reach expands further than the majority of the power forward prospects in his class. He’s currently projected as a mid second round pick.  
Yves Missi
Baylor | 6’ 10.75” | 229.4 lbs| C | Fr

Both of his parents played basketball for the Cameroon national team. His brother was a standout player for the Harvard men’s basketball team. Surprisingly, Missi only started playing the game in 2020. 

Three years later he helped the Baylor Bears to a 24-11 overall record in his freshman season. Interesting fact: for the 2023-24 season the Bears won 15 games and lost 5 when Messi grabbed 2 or more offensive rebounds. They also went 12-4 when had 1 or more steals.

At the next level Missi projects as a role player. A rim runner and clean up guy with the potential to disrupt and block shots. In addition to a rim runner with potential, the team that drafts Missi will add length, athleticism, positional size, offensive rebounding and a lob threat to their roster. 

Missi has a 38.5 inch max vertical, a 7’2” wingspan and a 9’1.5” standing reach. At 20 years old he’s one of the most athletic center prospects in this year’s draft class. Messi is currently projects as a mid first round pick.
Antonio Reeves
Kentucky | 6’ 4.5” | 186.6 lbs| SG | Sr

Step back Threeves has the second all time highest three point field goal percentage for a season in Kentucky history. But his efficiency doesn’t stop at the three point line. Reeves proved to be efficient at all three levels of scoring for during the 2023-24 season. Kentucky finished their season with a 23-10 overall record. Interesting but random fact: The Wildcats went 18-4 in games that Reeves shot over 46% from the field.

At the next level Reeves currently projects as a bench player up to a sixth man role with potential on both sides of the ball. In addition to his two-way potential at the shooting guard spot, the team that drafts Reeves will add three level scoring, offensive efficiency, long range shooting, positional size and defensive potential to their roster. 

The 23 year old Reeves is one of the veteran prospects of this year’s draft. However, he’s also has some athleticism and is one of the taller two guards prospects of this class. Reeves is currently projected as a late second round draft pick. 
Zaccharie Risacher
France | 6′ 8.5″ | 194.6 lbs| SF | 19 yr

Zaccharie Rissacher’s father played professional basketball. Stephane Risacher won a silver medal in the Sydney 2000 Olympics and played in the EuroLeague for six years. Zaccharie gives his dad credit for teaching him everything about the game.

At the age of three Stephane started teaching Zaccharie how to shoot from long distance. 15 years later Zaccharie took a shot that led to the EuroCup Rising Star award. An award that honors the best player in the EuroCup under the age of 22

At the next level Risacher has the potential to carve out a role as a solid 3 & D guy that also finishes at the basket. Currently he’s projected as a top-5 draft pick. Risacher is likely to evolve into a complete well rounded NBA player if given the opportunity to do so… Scouting Report
Alexandre Sarr
France (NBL) | 6′ 11.75″ | 224.2 lbs| PF

Alexandre Sarr is the prototypical modern day NBA seven footer. This coordinated, agile, fluid, long, lean, and athletic forward exudes potential as he moves around the floor naturally like a guard.

Like Cody Williams, Alexandre Sarr also has an older brother (Olivier Sarr) that currently plays for the Oklahoma City Thunder. Moreover, he is among the top prospects for the 2024 NBA Draft. Sarr is currently projected in the running to become the top pick in the upcoming NBA Draft…Scouting Report
Reed Sheppard
Kentucky| 6′ 1.75″ |181.6 lbs| PG

Reed Sheppard was raised in a religious environment. As a result he’s a believer, a man of faith. As faith would have it, Reed attended the same university as his parents, Kentucky basketball legends Jeff and Stacey Sheppard.

The Kentucky Wildcats won 23 games and lost 10 during the 2023-24 season. Cool fact: They were 11-0 when Sheppard committed less than 2 turnovers. Sheppard is currently projected as a Top-3 pick and has a long successful career ahead of him…Scouting Report
Terrance Shannon Jr
Illinois | 6’ 5.75” | 219.4 lbs| SF-SG | Sr

Most importantly he has the best last name hands down in my “unbiased” opinion. Jokes aside he’s a lefty shotmaker that became the Illinois Fighting Illini’s single season All-Time leader in free throws made, attempted and points scored. During the 2023-24 season, he led his team to a 29-9 overall record. Interesting fact: the Fighting Illini won 22 games and lost 1 when Shannon Jr shot 40% or better from the field. 

At the next level Shannon Jr projects as an athletic wing with the potential to become a legit two-way player. The team that drafts him will add a prospect to their roster with the potential to score at three levels, defend, get into passing lanes and get to the foul line.

Shannon Jr has a 6’ 8.75” wingspan and a 8’ 4” standing reach. At 23 years old he’s one of the best scoring prospects in this year’s class. He’s currently projected as a late first round pick.
K.J Simpson Jr
Colorado | 6’ 0.25” | 187 lbs| PG | Jr

Growth is the name of his game. From his freshman and sophomore campaigns to his junior season while playing the best basketball of his career Simpson made major strides. He transformed his overall offensive game and three point shooting from inefficient to efficient during the 2023-24 season. Plus his defense and rebounding significantly improved.

Simpson credits a better understanding of the game from a mental aspect for the 
improvements. Colorado finished their 23-24 season with a 26-11 overall record. Interesting fact: The Buffaloes went 14-3 when Simpson shot at least 50% from the field and 21-6 when he tallied at least 4 assists. 

At the next level Simpson is a quick, safe and steady floor general with the potential to make big plays. In addition to his ability to run an offense, the team that drafts Simpson will add athleticism, offensive efficiency, a three level scorer, three point shooting, trips to the line, defensive rebounding in the backcourt and defensive potential to their roster. 

At 21 years old Simpson is one of the more athletic prospects of this year’s draft. With a 40.5 inch max vertical he’s currently projected as an early second round pick. 
Nikola Topic
Serbia | 6′ 5.75″ | 203 lbs| PG-SG| 18 yr

Topic is a combo guard (primarily point) with more than enough size for either backcourt position. At just 18 years old his ability to impact the game by applying pressure to the defense with his ability to slash is what stands out most about his game.

Defensively he’s labeled as a liability. That narrative is not likely to stick. Initially it may hold true as with many NBA rookies. But, Topic has the potential to become a decent defender.

Currently he’s projected as a top 3 pick in the 2024 NBA Draft. In some circles he’s even being mentioned as the potential first pick. As we get closer to his return from a knee injury, get ready to keep an eye on his current stint in the EuroLeague. It will more than likely raise or plummet his draft stock…Scouting Report
Jaylon Tyson
California | 6’ 5.5” | 218.2 lbs| SF-SG | Jr

California finished the 2023-24 season with a 13-19 overall record. By the end of the season Tyson ranked as one of the Golden Bears all time leaders for made field goals and points scored in a single season. Interesting fact: the Golden Bears won 5 games and lost 1 when Tyson scored 27 points or more. They also went 5-1 in the games that he made 10 or more baskets while shooting over 42 % from the field. 

In the NBA, Tyson has the potential to be a three level scoring wing that creates offense, handles the ball and rebounds at his position.  In addition to his shot creation, ball handling and rebounding the team that drafts Tyson will also add positional size at the two guard slot and some offensive glass work from the three spot to their roster.

At 21 years old Tyson has a 6’ 8” wingspan, 8’ 6.5” standing reach and a 36.5 inch max vertical. He’s currently projected as a late first round draft pick. 
Ja’Kobe Walter
Baylor | 6’ 4.25” | 197.6 lbs| SG | Fr

Since he started playing the game of basketball Ja’Kobe has always dreamt of making it to the NBA and playing for as long as he can. In the last three NBA Drafts Baylor has produced one mid first round and two lottery picks. Will Ja’Kobe keep the Baylor mid first round and lottery pick streak alive? 

Walter is no stranger of streaks. Baylor went 12-0 when Walter committed less than two fouls in a game. Overall Baylor finished the season with a 24 win and 11 loss record. The Bears also went 10-2 when Ja’Kobe shot better than 43% from three point territory. 

At the next level Walter may not be NBA ready just yet but he’s one of the best projects to have in this year’s draft class. In addition to his potential, the team that drafts Walter will add positional size, athleticism, backcourt length, backcourt offensive rebounding, defensive potential, shooting potential and trips to the line. 

The 19 year old Walter has a 6’10” wingspan and a 38.5 inch vertical. As one of the best projects to mold in this year’s draft class he’s currently projected as a mid to late first round pick. 
Kel’el Ware
Indiana | 6’ 11.5” | 230 lbs| C | So

Before Indiana there was Oregon. Ware went to Oregon as their second highest rated recruit of all time. However after a one-year stint with the Ducks questions about his motor, character, work ethic and consistency were raised. 

Ware transferred to the Indiana Hoosiers led by Mike Woodson for his sophomore season. Woodson challenged him to leave the past behind and play at a higher level. The rest is history. 

For a player that aspires to make it to the NBA and stick, shedding the “lazy” narrative during his campaign at Indiana was a great start. Indiana finished their season with a 19-14 overall record. Interesting fact: The Hoosiers went 10-4 in games that Ware scored more than 16 points.

At the next level Ware is a solid role player with the potential to become a double-double big. In addition to his mobility, coordination and potential, the team that drafts Ware will add size, length, defense, shot blocking, a lob threat, rebounding and pick & pop/stretch the defense potential to their roster. At 20 years old Ware is currently projected as a late lottery to mid first round pick.
Cody Williams
Colorado | 6′ 6.5″ | 178.4 lbs| SF| Fr

Has dealt with some injuries but overall thriving as a PAC-12 All-Freshman and ranked among the nation’s top NCAA freshmen. However, given his NBA pedigree, none of this should come as a surprise.

As the youngest of three siblings, Cody’s brother, Jalen Williams, who played for Santa Clara, was selected as the 12th overall pick in the 2022 NBA Draft by the Oklahoma City Thunder. Now in his second year, Jalen has firmly established himself as a burgeoning star in the NBA.

With Cody currently projected as a top 5 pick in the upcoming 2024 NBA Draft, the question arises: Can he emulate his brother’s success and make his mark in the NBA?…Scouting Report
