  1. 扎卡里·里萨谢尔 | 小前锋 | JL Bourg

6 英尺 10 英寸 | 年龄:19.0 | 先前排名:1

里萨谢尔正在走出最近的低迷——过去四场比赛得到 14、14、18 和 11 分,同时命中了一半的投篮尝试。这是值得注意的,因为自从大学赛季结束以来,每场比赛都有大量的 NBA 管理人员到场。里萨谢尔 6 英尺 10 英寸的身高与外线投篮能力的结合非常有吸引力——他命中了 39% 的三分球——考虑到他通过防守的多功能性和对比赛的敏锐洞察力带来的其他因素。法国季后赛将在未来两周内举行,这将是彩票球队最后审视他的关键评估机会,这一次是在 Bourg。——吉沃尼

  1. 亚历克斯·萨尔 | 大前锋/中锋 | 珀斯

7-1 | 年龄:19.0 | 先前排名:2

3 月中旬澳大利亚赛季结束之后,萨尔已经过渡到训练模式,他在萨尔继续牢牢占据 1 号新秀的争夺位置,进入关键的选秀前阶段。他将有机会在私人环境中帮助自己,并要求在选秀中占据首位,在那里他的运动天赋很可能会给他人留下深刻印象。在与珀斯进行的比赛中,萨尔在 30 场比赛中投篮 57 次命中 18 次(31.6%),并且罚球命中率为 72%,球队的特别好奇他投篮的能力。萨尔在拥有移动性和可以扩大球场并影响比赛两端的特点,这在这个乐透等级中脱颖而出,但他还有更多工作要做才能稳固自己的地位。尽管如此,在乐透顺序确定后,他应该有足够的杠杆作用,可以选择与谁合作。——乌

  1. 多诺万·克林根 | 中锋 | 康涅狄格大学

7-2 | 年龄:20.1 | 先前排名:3

克林根在 UConn 的全国冠军赛中发挥了巨大作用,他巩固了大学篮球界最出色的防守之一。他带来了巨大的体型、长度、直觉和时机,同时通过大幅提升的移动性在球场上进行所有比赛。他还成为 UConn 排名第一的进攻的主要进攻枢纽,从高位发起进攻,同时也是一个关键的掩护者、篮下球员、切入球员和进攻篮板手。克林根已经在佛罗里达州开始了他的选秀前进程,但他肯定会选择访问他所在的球队,因为他在本赛季出色的表现已经让他跃升至 NBA 球队选秀榜单的前五名。这给了他一个机会,根据赢得彩票的球队不同,最高可以获得 1 号新秀的选秀权。——吉沃尼

  1. 罗布·迪林厄姆 | 控球后卫 | 肯塔基大学

6-2 | 年龄:19.3 | 先前排名:4

迪林厄姆是彩票中预测结果最具两极分化的球员之一,他在哪里获得选秀权将取决于最终的彩票顺序。需要控球后卫帮助的球队必须认真考虑他:他比其他人更自然地在运球时创造投篮机会,并且已经成长为一名非常好的射手。另一方面,联盟中的许多人都怀疑迪林厄姆是否会成为一支胜利球队中的首发球员,主要是因为他的体型不足以及他可能会在防守端放弃的东西。因此,他在选秀初期是一个风险与回报并存的重大命题,并且可能会在彩票中获得相当广泛的结果,具体取决于选秀前的过程。——乌播放

  1. 尼古拉·托皮奇 | 控球后卫 | 红星

6-7 | 年龄:18.7 | 先前排名:5

在因膝伤缺战 14 周后,托皮奇在红星在亚得里亚海联盟季后赛中取得进步后重返球场,在上周的一场胜利中出场 16 分钟得到 8 分。托皮奇投进了两个三分球,并通过聪明的挡拆阅读展示了自己的视野,但他的节奏看起来不太对劲——这是在他的长期缺席后所预料的。他在一些情况下被盖帽,也很难侧向移动出站位。即将到来的比赛会受到密切关注,但他本月可能有很多比赛让他有机会重新获得因伤失去的一些势头。——吉沃尼

  1. 马塔斯·布泽利斯 | 小前锋 | 发展联盟点燃队

6-10 | 年龄:19.5 | 先前排名:6

鉴于布泽利斯的血统、成绩以及他是有机会在整个过程中将自己的竞争对手提升至前几名的少数球员之一,球队应该感到安心。他在发展联盟中的体型、多功能性和成绩都表明作为 NBA 贡献者有一个相当可靠的未来,但问题在于以什么身份。如果布泽利斯能够作为一名射手创造者取得飞跃,这可能会大大提升他的上限,并且他可能的目标是在训练环境中展示他的得分潜力。——乌

  1. 里德·谢泼德 | 控球后卫/得分后卫 | 肯塔基大学

6-2 | 年龄:19.8 | 先前排名:7

在收到反馈表明他有非常有力的理由成为前五名新秀,甚至可能排名前三的新秀(这是一个很难错过的机会)之后,谢泼德参加了选秀。谢泼德的投篮技巧、传球创造力、防守直觉、成绩和永不枯竭的自信在整个赛季都让 NBA 球队赞叹不已。他在本届选秀的顶端有一些粉丝,但乐透的结果将决定他最终在哪里上场。——吉沃尼播放

  1. 道尔顿·克内希特 | 得分后卫/小前锋 | 田纳西大学

6-6 | 年龄:23.0 | 先前排名:8

毫无疑问,在田纳西大学度过了一个巨大的赛季,克内希特是选秀中最精湛的得分手之一,这使他合法地成为了一名 NBA 人才——他一年前在科罗拉多北部的时候还没有出现在人们的视野中。并非每个球队都会优先在这个选秀环节选择一名年龄较大的新秀,但克内希特很有可能被乐透彩票队选中,该球队对他防御上的不足感到满意。在不确定的选秀中,克内希特已经能够将自己定位为一名相对容易评估的球员——他应该拉开空间并在接到球时得分——并将作为一名即插即用式选手,在这类选秀中很有吸引力。——乌

  1. 斯蒂芬·卡斯尔 | 控球后卫/得分后卫 | 康涅狄格大学

2024 NBA draft: Where does the board stand ahead of the pre-draft process?

Jonathan Givony and Jeremy Woo

May 2, 2024, 08:00 AM ET

With basketball seasons coming to a close around the globe, scouts are flocking to the final games of European prospects to get one last look ahead of the pre-draft process.

Possible No. 1 pick Zaccharie Risacher and his JL Bourg team in France are about to enter the playoffs, while prospects Nikola Topic and Tidjane Salaun are hoping solid late-season runs can help vault them up the draft board.

Most prospects are focused on the pre-draft events coming up in May. The G League Elite Camp will be held May 10-12 and runs into the NBA draft combine (May 12-17) with Chicago playing host to both events.

These pre-draft events will lead to the most movement in the top 25 as scouts get a final look ahead of the NBA draft on June 26-27. But where do the prospects currently stand ahead of Chicago?

Rankings and write-ups last updated: Thursday, May 2.

Jump to: Jonathan Givony’s Top 100

  1. Zaccharie Risacher | SF | JL Bourg

6-foot-10 | Age: 19.0 | Previously ranked: 1

Risacher is breaking out of his recent slump – recording point totals of 14, 14, 18 and 11 in his past four games, while making half his field goal attempts. That’s notable because every game he plays is heavily attended by NBA executives since the college season ended. Risacher’s combination of size at 6-foot-10, and perimeter shooting ability – he’s hitting 39% of his 3-pointers – is attractive considering the other things he brings with his defensive versatility and feel for the game. The French playoffs take place over the next two weeks and will be a key evaluation opportunity for lottery teams to get a last look at him with Bourg. – Givony

  1. Alex Sarr | PF/C | Perth

7-1 | Age: 19.0 | Previously ranked: 2

Sarr remains firmly in the mix at No. 1 entering the critical pre-draft stretch, having transitioned into workout mode with his season in Australia ending in mid-March. He’ll have an opportunity to help himself and stake his claim atop the draft in private settings, where his athletic gifts are likely to impress. Teams will be particularly curious to see him shoot from 3, after he made 18 of 57 attempts (31.6%) in 30 games across competitions with Perth and shot 72% from the line. Sarr’s profile as a mobile big who could stretch the floor and impact the game on both ends stands out in the context of this lottery class, but he has more work to do to firm up his standing. With that said, he should have enough leverage in the process to be selective with who he works out for after the lottery order is determined. – Woo

  1. Donovan Clingan | C | Connecticut

7-2 | Age: 20.1 | Previously ranked: 3

Clingan played a huge role in UConn’s national championship run, anchoring one of college basketball’s best defenses. He brings tremendous size, length, instincts and timing while making plays all over the floor with his much-improved mobility. He was also a major playmaking hub for UConn’s No. 1-ranked offense, facilitating from the high post as well as being a key screener, roller, cutter and offensive rebounder. Clingan has started his pre-draft process in Florida but will surely be selective with what teams he visits as his outstanding play this season has rocketed him into the top five on NBA teams’ draft boards. That gives him a chance to get drafted as high as No. 1 depending on which team wins the lottery. – Givony

  1. Rob Dillingham | PG | Kentucky

6-2 | Age: 19.3 | Previously ranked: 4

Dillingham is one of the more polarizing players projected in the lottery, and where he gets drafted will depend on how the final lottery order shakes out. Teams in need of playmaking help will have to look hard at him: He creates shots off the bounce more naturally than anyone in the class and has developed into a very good shooter. On the other hand, many around the league are skeptical Dillingham becomes a starter on a winning team, primarily because of his lack of size and what he’s likely to give up on the defensive end. As a result, he’s a major risk-reward proposition early in the draft, and might be looking at a pretty wide range of outcomes within the lottery, depending on how the pre-draft process goes. – Wooplay

  1. Nikola Topic | PG | Red Star

6-7 | Age: 18.7 | Previously ranked: 5

After a 14-week absence, Topic is back on the court following his knee injury, helping Red Star advance in the Adriatic League playoffs while posting eight points in 16 minutes in a win last week. Topic made a pair of 3s and showed his vision with intelligent pick-and-roll reads, but his rhythm looked off – as is expected following his prolonged absence. He got his shot blocked on a few occasions and struggled to move laterally out of a stance, as well. His coming games will be closely scrutinized, but he’ll likely have plenty of games coming this month that give him a chance to regain some of the momentum he lost because of his injury. – Givony

  1. Matas Buzelis | SF | G League Ignite

6-10 | Age: 19.5 | Previously ranked: 6

Teams should feel comfortable with Buzelis given his pedigree, productivity, and that he’s one of a handful of players with a legitimate opportunity to boost his stock into the top few spots as the process plays out. His size, versatility and production in the G League all suggest a pretty bankable future as an NBA contributor, with the question being in what capacity. If Buzelis is able to make a leap as a shot-creator, it could elevate his ceiling considerably, and he’ll presumably aim to showcase his scoring potential in workout settings. – Woo

  1. Reed Sheppard | PG/SG | Kentucky

6-2 | Age: 19.8 | Previously ranked: 7

Sheppard entered the draft after receiving feedback indicating he has a very strong case to be a top-five pick, possibly even a top-three pick – an opportunity that is hard to pass on. Sheppard’s shooting prowess, passing creativity, defensive instincts, productivity and never-ending confidence wowed NBA teams all season. He has some fans at the top of this draft, but the results of the lottery will help determine where he ultimately lands. – Givonyplay

  1. Dalton Knecht | SG/SF | Tennessee

6-6 | Age: 23.0 | Previously ranked: 8

There’s little doubt Knecht is one of the most polished scorers in the draft after a huge season at Tennessee that legitimized him as an NBA talent – he wasn’t on the radar this time a year ago at Northern Colorado. Not every team will prioritize selecting an older prospect this high in the draft, but there’s a real chance Knecht will be selected by a lottery team that’s comfortable with his defensive limitations. In an uncertain draft class, Knecht has been able to set himself apart as a relatively easy player to evaluate – he should space the floor and score when called upon – and will be appealing as a plug-and-play option beginning in this range of the draft. – Woo

  1. Stephon Castle | PG/SG | Connecticut

6-6 | Age: 19.4 | Previously ranked: 14

Castle used the significant platform of UConn’s national championship run to show off his winning credentials, with several impressive NCAA tournament performances. He guarded the other teams’ best players, hit outside shots to keep defenses honest and demonstrated his unselfishness as a secondary playmaker while playing an important role against high-level competition. NBA teams will want to learn more about Castle’s perimeter shooting and overall scoring ability to better determine where he should be picked, but he has done well to position himself going into the pre-draft process. – Givonyplay

  1. Cody Williams | SG/SF | Colorado

6-8 | Age: 19.4 | Previously ranked: 9

The workout circuit will be important for Williams to remind teams why he once was viewed as a candidate at the top of the draft, a case that was complicated by the way he finished the season – due at least in part to injuries. At his best, he looked like a clear lottery talent, but those games were fewer and further between than initially expected. Front offices will be particularly interested to assess his comfort level shooting both off the catch and dribble in drill situations as they try to better project his future offensive role and impact. Williams’ size, playmaking ability and defensive potential have always signaled intriguing long-term upside, but there’s a variance of opinion among scouts on his floor and ceiling as a prospect… – Woo

  1. Isaiah Collier | PG | USC

6-5 | Age: 19.5 | Previously ranked: 10

Collier is viewed as a polarizing prospect, with a wide draft range starting around the mid-lottery and extending throughout the first round. Few prospects share the shot-creation prowess, scoring instincts and star power Collier boasts, but his lack of scoring efficiency, nontraditional shooting mechanics and inconsistent defense make it difficult to gauge how prepared he is to impact winning early in his NBA career, considering USC’s struggles this season. Collier can use the pre-draft process and remind teams why he was his recruiting class’ No. 1-ranked player coming out of high school, as well as assuage some of these concerns. – Givonyplay

  1. Ja’Kobe Walter | SG/SF | Baylor

6-5 | Age: 19.5 | Previously ranked: 11

Walter’s shot-making ability, length and intangibles have given him a secure pathway into the later lottery, as teams feel pretty comfortable with what he brings to the table. He has an opportunity to rise a bit with a good pre-draft process if teams place greater value on his solid floor and useful skill set in a draft that’s lacking prospects who are sure things. While not much of a ball handler and undersized for an NBA wing, Walter should make enough shots and offer enough defensively in the long run to provide value – the questions here are more about where the upside lies. – Wooplay

  1. Ron Holland | SF | G League Ignite

6-7 | Age: 18.8 | Previously ranked: 12

Holland was the No. 2-ranked player in his high school class but saw his stock dip this season after being miscast at G League Ignite as a primary offensive option. His role led to some big scoring performances, but he also struggled with turnovers and scoring inefficiency throughout the season. Holland will try to remind NBA teams of his winning intangibles and competitiveness in the pre-draft process with his motor and defensive versatility, major reasons he was so highly regarded early in his career. His perimeter shooting will be closely scrutinized after he hit just 24% of his 3-point attempts in the G League. – Givony

  1. Zach Edey | C | Purdue

7-4 | Age: 22.0 | Previously ranked: 13

Edey remains a known quantity, and how teams value him and which landing spots emerge in the draft will be more a referendum on each front office and coaching staff’s philosophy on how to use his unique strengths. Whether Edey emerges as a viable rotation player or becomes more of a situational factor hangs on him landing in an optimal situation for his usage and development. His size, strength, competitiveness and touch around the basket will allow him to play impactful minutes, and if he can make more strides on the defensive end, he should be able to carve out a useful niche in the NBA. – Woo

  1. Tidjane Salaun | PF | Cholet

6-10 | Age: 18.7 | Previously ranked: 15

Salaun’s role – already significant for an 18-year-old at this level of European basketball – continues to grow as the season moves on with him logging 29 minutes per game over the past 10 contests. He has had several big scoring outings despite his inconsistent efficiency, showing off his credentials as an oversized forward with real shot-making prowess who plays with outstanding intensity on both ends of the floor. Cholet, currently on a five-game losing stream, will need to win its final two games to get in position to make the playoffs. – Givony

  1. Kyle Filipowski | PF/C | Duke

7-0 | Age: 20.5 | Previously ranked: 16

Filipowski has been another polarizing name, as there’s clear value in the array of skills he possesses at his size, but there were several times in the past couple of seasons when he left scouts wanting more. It’s hard to find 7-footers with his potential to shoot, make plays for teammates and operate inside-out, but there are concerns about his physical ability, defense and toughness that he will have to address going into June. He won’t be a fit on every roster, but there aren’t many bigs in the draft who offer the versatility he could bring on offense. – Woo

  1. Devin Carter | PG/SG | Providence

6-3 | Age: 22.1 | Previously ranked: 17

Carter is coming off a highly successful junior season that earned him Big East Player of the Year honors, boosting his draft stock firmly into the first round. There’s going to be considerable interest among playoff teams in his two-way versatility, improved perimeter shooting, toughness and role-playing potential. He looks like a plug-and-play option for a team that already has ample shot-creators. – Givony

  1. Tristan Da Silva | SF/PF | Colorado

6-9 | Age: 22.9 | Previously ranked: 18

A strong finish helped vault Da Silva into first-round territory as one of our biggest late-season risers. His ability to space the floor, defend multiple positions and operate out of several spots on offense give him a leg up toward finding a role in the modern NBA. His rebounding and physicality leave something to be desired, but playoff teams looking for immediate help at forward could give him a long look in this range of the draft. His versatility should open up a wide range of potential suitors. – Woo

  1. Jared McCain | PG/SG | Duke

6-3 | Age: 20.1 | Previously ranked: 19

McCain is one of the best shooters in this draft but can do more than that. He improved his shot creation, rebounding and defense as the season moved on and now has an easy niche he can fill in the NBA with his scoring instincts, competitiveness and smarts. McCain might be able to show he has a higher upside than he’s being given credit for during the pre-draft process because of his just-average physical tools. – Givonyplay

  1. Yves Missi | C | Baylor

6-11 | Age: 20.0 | Previously ranked: 20

Missi had some nice flashes as a freshman, stepping in as Baylor’s starting center and gaining a valuable full season of experience. While still a ways from being able to positively impact an NBA floor on a nightly basis, Missi’s physical ability and size make him an interesting development selection in a draft that’s otherwise a bit light on rim-running centers in his mold. Teams will want to better understand his trajectory as they work to determine his feel for the game and untapped upside. His range still seems wide going into May as the pre-draft process nears. – Woo

  1. Tyler Smith | SF/PF | G League Ignite

6-10 | Age: 19.4 | Previously ranked: 21

At 19 years old, Smith was one of the G League’s most prolific per-minute scorers. The 6-foot-10 forward has impressive scoring instincts and shot-making prowess. He can put the ball in the basket in a variety of ways, especially from the perimeter, a coveted skill for a player his size. Smith can help himself in the pre-draft process by showing he has a better feel for the game and greater potential defensively than he displayed this season, when he regularly looked lost off the ball. – Givony

  1. Kevin McCullar Jr. | SG/SF | Kansas

6-7 | Age: 23.1 | Previously ranked: 22

McCullar was banged up for much of the season at Kansas but at his best looked like a player capable of contributing off an NBA bench in the short term. While not elite in any area, wings who can make plays in a pinch, knock down open shots and hold their own defensively tend to have broad use. McCullar figures to do those things, although he has more left to prove as a shooter – he shot 31% from 3 and 75% from the line in 137 college games. His age is also a factor, but he’ll appeal to teams searching for serviceable minutes at his position. – Woo

  1. Bobi Klintman | SF/PF | Cairns

6-10 | Age: 21.1 | Previously ranked: 23

Klintman had a productive season in Australia, showing he can score in a variety of ways, namely with his perimeter jumper and while running the floor in transition. It’s hard to find an NBA team that isn’t looking for 6-10 players in his mold, despite theoretical qualities to his game that he’ll still need to answer for during the pre-draft process, namely his consistency on both ends of the floor. – Givony

  1. Kyshawn George | SG/SF | Miami

6-9 | Age: 20.4 | Previously ranked: 24

George’s year-end numbers weren’t spectacular (13.2 points, 5 rebounds and 3.8 assists per 40 minutes), but he flashed enough ability to put himself in the first-round conversation. His size, ballhandling, playmaking and shooting (40.8% from 3 on four attempts per game) make him an interesting long-term development bet, but his lack of high-level experience was evident in his inconsistent play. There are real questions about his ability to get into the paint and handle physicality, but his mix of skills is inherently valuable if he puts it together. George will be a popular pre-draft workout target as teams look to determine his ultimate place on their boards. He could be a real riser in the spring, but he could also be better off developing in college another year. – Woo

  1. Carlton Carrington | PG | Pitt

6-5 | Age: 18.7 | Previously ranked: 25

Carrington was one of the youngest players in college basketball this season but was able to carve out a significant role on a Pitt team that was one win away from making the NCAA tournament. He was up and down in ACC play but had some outstanding performances down the stretch, showing his talent as a plus-sized ballhandling guard who can shoot off the bounce, pass off a live dribble and bring intensity defensively despite his lack of strength and high-end explosiveness. Carrington will need time to be ready to play meaningful NBA minutes, but his youth, versatility and feel for the game give him a high ceiling in a draft lacking in that department. – Givony
