Hopefully Lotto gods bless Motown again :blessed:

Funky draft at top. Can’t see teams truly passing on Holgrem. He could legit be Anthony Davis like prospect. His frame is the only glaring hole.

Banchero is NBA ready and should be favorite to be rookie of the year wherever he goes. Just don’t like bigs that can’t rebound, protect rim, play defense

Jabari safest of top 3. Lights out shooter. Good motor/defender. Don’t really know his true potential. Is he capable of developing a decent handle? Develop a mid range game

Ivey and Sharpe are big projects

Outside of Smith, Banchero, and Chet who y’all interested in seeing at the NBA level? I ain’t paid too much attention to incoming guys other than the top level ones

If the Pistons can trade for a legit player with their pick + whatever I want them to do that .


I really don’t like any of these top prospects outside of Chet and I’m not really fully convinced by him yet either

Shaedon Sharpe, extremely athletic shot maker who can score in a variety of ways

Bennedict Mathurin, effortless scorer at the college level, great defender

Guys at the end of the 1st:
Jaylin Williams - excellent rebounder who is probably the best passing big in the draft, great defensive instincts

Jalen Williams - three level scorer who shot 40% from three, 6'6 and had a major growth spurt from being a small pg

Wendell Moore - secondary playmaker/wing who shot well this season, 20 year old junior, same age as Chet or Tyty Washington

Jake Laravia - stretch 4 with good passing instincts, also a 20 year old junior

Leonard Miller - super athletic and tall high school guard/wing at 6'11, was best international player at the hoop summit, extremely raw but shows great touch and passing ability. Could be this year's Josh Primo.

First, let me recommend Rafael Barlowe's NBA Big Board Podcast. He puts up a ton of content about the draft. He'll have plenty of combine coverage.


Now, onto draft rights

Because OKC kept their pick, Hawks now get OKC's 2024 and 2025 2nd rounders. This is from the Carmelo Anthony to Hawks trade.

If New Orleans' pick via LAL falls out of the top 10, the pick goes to Memphis. This pick is from the Anthony Davis to Lakers trade.

OKC gets the Clippers pick. This is from the Paul George to Clippers trade.

IND gets the Cavaliers pick. This is from the Caris LeVert to Cavaliers trade.

CHA gets the Pelicans pick. This is from the Jonas Valanciunas /Steven Adams/De'Vonte Graham trade

MEM gets the Jazz pick. This is from the Mike Conley to UTA trade.

HOU gets the Nets pick. This is from the James Harden to BK trade

SA gets the Raptors pick. This is from the Thaddeus Young to TOR trade.

BK gets the 76ers pick. This is from the James Harden /Ben Simmons trade. BK has the right to defer this pick until 2023 by June 1.

SA gets the Celtics pick. This is from the Derrick White to BOS trade

OKC gets the Suns pick. This is from the Chris Paul to PHX trade.

This year the 2nd round is a little weird in that there's 2 less 2nd rounders because Milwaukee and Miami have to forfeit their 2nd rounders because of their shady transactions (only 58 picks in total this year)
