1. Markelle Fultz (PG/SG, Washington)
  2. Josh Jackson (SF, Kansas)
  3. Lonzo Ball (PG, UCLA)
  4. Jayson Tatum (SF, Duke) (+2) – Tatum absolutely excelled in the ACC Tournament and played well in the NCAA’s . Perhaps the best scorer in the draft not named Fultz  ?
  5. De’Aaron Fox (PG, Kentucky) (+6) – De’Aaron Fox played like the best point guard in the NCAA Tournament. He dominated Lonzo Ball and proved he can score in bunches without proficiency from long-range.
  6. Jonathan Isaac (SF/PF, Florida State) (-2) – I’m still all over Isaac’s two way potential, but Isaac didn’t put together a string of games similar to Fox or Tatum late in the season.
  7. Malik Monk (SG, Kentucky)
  8. Frank Ntilikina (PG, France)
  9. Lauri Markkanen (PF, Arizona)
  10. Dennis Smith Jr. (PG, NC State) (-5)
  11. Harry Giles (PF, Duke) (-1)
  12. Justin Patton (C, Creighton) (+1)
  13. Zach Collins (PF/C, Gonzaga) (+11) – If you watched any of the NCAA Tournament, this shouldn’t be a surprise. Collins has such a mature skill set for a 19 year-old, with his offensive arsenal and solid defense. Collins is one of the safest bets in this draft.
  14. Jarrett Allen (C, Texas)  (+3)
  15. Justin Jackson (SF/SG, North Carolina) (NEW) – I’m mad at myself for not seeing how good Jackson was before March. Unforgivable.
  16. Terrence Ferguson (SG/SF, Adelaide 36ers) (+5) – Ferguson is looking like the classic uber-athletic wing that gets gambled on, but his ability as a shooter makes the gamble less risky.
  17. OG Anunoby (SF, Indiana) (+1)
  18. Ivan Rabb (PF/C, California) (-2)
  19. Isiah Hartenstein (PF, Germany)  (-4) 
  20. Bam Adebayo (C, Kentucky) (-1)
  21. Ike Anibogu (C, UCLA) (-1)
  22. John Collins (PF, Wake Forest) (+1)
  23. Josh Hart (SG/ SF, Villanova) (+2)
  24. TJ Leaf (PF, UCLA) (+2)
  25. Donovan Mitchell (SG, Louisville) (+4)
  26. Luke Kennard (SG, Duke) (+2)
  27. Jon Motley (PF/C, Baylor)
  28. Caleb Swanigan (PF/C, Purdue) (+2)
  29. Semi Ojeleye (SF/PF, SMU) (NEW) – Combo forwards are highly sought after, given the lineup versatility that NBA teams are trotting out on both sides of the ball. Ojeleye has the defensive versatility, offensive efficiency (52% from 2/ 42% from 3), and athleticism to fit the bill of an NBA hybrid forward.
  30. Jawun Evans (PG, Oklahoma State) (NEW) – Evans makes his way back on to the board after an impressive showing in March. Evans is as capable of handling a pick-and-roll as well as anyone in the draft. Evans isn’t an eye-popping athlete, but has the speed to blow by defenders and stay in front of quick guards on defense.
