Best Undrafted NBA Free Agents
Some of the best players were available AFTER Thursday's NBA draft. Here are those names and where they landed
Last week's NBA draft was full of surprises, starting with the first overall choice — the Magic selected Paolo Banchero over heavily favored Jabari Smith. For most of the draft cycle Banchero was widely considered the third-best prospect behind Smith and Chet Holmgren.
Other surprises: New York traded out of the lottery, and three players — David Roddy, Patrick Baldwin Jr. and Peyton Watson — went in the first round at least 10 to 15 spots ahead of where they were projected on most mock drafts.
But the biggest surprises for me were the players who were not drafted, including some of the most talented players in the draft.
