March Madness is almosth here. So what better ocasion to take a look at the HoopsHype list of the current status for the 2024 NBA Draft? A top 5 compiling 10 Mock Drafts from ESPN, The Athletic, Bleacher Report, The Ringer, SB Nation, among another well respected sources.
HoopsHype has also spoken with several NBA executives and scouts to get their take on the prospects for the third edition of the aggregate mock draft. The consensus of most NBA talent evaluators is that this draft class does not have as much franchise talent as in previous years, however it is deep with several potential surprise players.
Among the most interesting prospects are European players Alex Sarr, Zaccharie Risacher, Nikola Topic and Matas Buzelis, who although born in the United States has Lithuanian origins. In addition there are also American talents such as Cody Williams.
1. Alex Sarr
Perth Wildcats center Alex Sarr has been highlighted as a potential high lottery pick after solid performances against G League Ignite in early September. The consistency of his motor was questioned upon his arrival to the Perth Wildcats, but he has since shown improvement as a great athlete and interchangeable defender.
2. Zaccharie Risacher
French forward Zaccharie Risacher has been a consistent shooter during the season at 43.8% from three-point range. He has shown the ability to convert shot opportunities and also uses a sliding step to create space for his shot.
3. Nikola Topic
Point guard Nikola Topic has quickly risen up draft boards thanks to his size, playmaking ability and potential to make an immediate impact next season. For now, the biggest question about Topic's game is his ability to shoot from the three-point line.
4. Matas Buzelis
G League Ignite forward Matas Buzelis could be the first G League Ignite player selected in this year's class, thanks primarily to his ball handling and playmaking ability for his size.
5. Cody Williams
Colorado forward Cody Williams has steadily moved up in the draft since the first mock in September to potentially being off the board within the first five picks of the draft.
The 2024 NBA Draft guarantees a variety of emerging and promising talent. With names like Alex Sarr, Zaccharie Risacher and Nikola Topic topping the list, NBA teams have a lot to think about as they prepare to receive the future of the league. With the depth and variety of skills available, this draft could bring surprises and rising stars that will change the dynamic of the NBA for years to come.
