NBA Mock Draft: Projecting the Lottery
Our first forecast for the 2023 NBA Draft
With the college basketball season hitting the one-month mark, it’s time to assess where things stand, particularly in terms of the top NBA prospects.
This mock draft is based on conversations with NBA executives, scouts and agents as well as my own projections.
Of course, my draft rankings and forecasts will continue to evolve, as will evaluations around the NBA, and we’ll be here all year with analysis as things change.
