Comparing my Big Board 1.0 to 6.0
How the Turn Tables…
Over the past several months there have been a ton of changes in how players have been evaluated and where they have been projected to go for the coming draft. Even for myself, from the time of my Big Board 1.0 until now, there have been several radical changes in my rankings. As many know, I began this season with an upstart newsletter and podcast. I was posting work on Stephen G Hoops and then started a subsequent newsletter with fellow No Ceilings member Maxwell Baumbach: Pick & Roll. While hosting my independent podcast, Draft Capital, I began to meet some incredible folks within the draft community.
As my timeline—or Multiverse to be in vogue with pop culture—was beginning to change and shift, the players from the NCAA, the G-League Ignite roster, the Overtime Elite, and International prospects of the coming NBA draft class changed and shifted. Players that I was higher on in the month of December (when my 1.0 was published), I later waned on. There have also been prospects that I’m willing to admit that weren’t even on my radar. With all of that being said, this piece will be an opportunity for us to evaluate where I—and hopefully you, the reader—started the season and where it’s looking like I’ll finish in terms of prospect ranking. Feel free to scroll through to just read where I had and have these players, but there will be some analysis and thoughts provided for many placements. This should make for some great philosophical therapy and admissions of wrongs. Let’s get it started, folks.
1.0 vs 6.0- The Top 30
1. Then: Paolo Banchero | Now: Jabari Smith Jr.
I’m not necessarily sure that my original take on these two prospects will be that far off. Paolo came into the cycle with #1 expectations, while Jabari was looked at as a bit of a reach in that spot early on. While it’s nice to see that I was higher on Jabari when he ranked second over five months ago, the fact that Paolo has only taken a slight bump to #2 makes the mid-season fallout that surrounded him feel a little silly.
2. Then: Jabari Smith Jr. | Now: Paolo Banchero
3. Then: Chet Holmgren | Now: Chet Holmgren
Chet did climb to the #2 spot for me at the beginning of March and never fell lower than the third spot on any of my boards. His game is interesting, as “The Flytrap” seems to lull opponents to sleep on both sides of the ball due to misguided, preconceived notions. He’s not a player I would consider a “safe player” in the manner of him not having a high ceiling. He’s safe because he’ll be a steady contributor, but he also has a ceiling that could be something fierce. I have concerns about his offense and how much he’ll be a factor on that end as to what level of production he’ll give, but the fact that he can alter a team’s fortunes defensively is something I value tremendously.
4. Then: Jaden Hardy | Now: Shaedon Sharpe
Jaden Hardy took a massive leap in terms of level of competition. As Nathan and I have discussed on the Big Board series that aired on Draft Deeper—and how we’ve heard Rucker, Corey, and others from our No Ceilings collective mention—going from a “normal” High School directly to pro-level competition was something that may have gone under-anticipated. Our own, Maxwell, has even made the brilliant observation that Hardy had to adjust to a ginormous adjustment to his opponents, as well as the NBA three-point shot. He doesn’t look like the fourthbest player today, but I think there is plenty of optimism for his future.
Sharpe refused to make this class easier to evaluate throughout the season, as there were questions concerning his eligibility, as well as his desire to make the jump to the NBA. Had we known whether or not he could/would declare for the draft, perhaps he would have made the Big Board 1.0—and maybe in a big way.
5. Then: Jaden Ivey | Now: Jaden Ivey
6. Then: Kendall Brown | Now: Dyson Daniels
Kendall Brown has been one of the more curious cases in this class. There were likely people in December that would suggest I had him too low. Flash forward to today, and now Brown might go in the second round. The fact that, as a defensive talent, he was somewhat routinely taken advantage of on back cuts hurt his stock. The “false bottom” that I suggested was behind his three-point shooting numbers proved to be true in his lone collegiate season. He does possess perhaps the strongest case for the best athlete in the class.
Dyson Daniels making the case to be the best G-League Ignite prospect would have been a stretch in the preseason, but that looks like that could be the reality. The in-season growth spurt may have tipped the needle more in his favor, but the improvement in his shooting also stands out. He might also be the best perimeter defender that has entered this draft. As a connector, Dyson could go to a Top 10 team that already has a strong lead playmaker and make life easier for his teammates.
7. Then: Patrick Baldwin Jr. | Now: Bennedict Mathurin
8. Then: Jalen Duren | Now: Jonathan Davis
9. Then: Kennedy Chandler | Now: Malaki Branham
The ongoing discussion that has taken place in this class is the strength—or perceived lack-there-of—of the depth at guard. Chandler was getting legitimate praise as “The Next CP3” on several showings on prominent television networks. I was quick to bite on the notion that he could be a fantastic lead NBA guard. As the season wore on, there was some variance in his three-point efficiency, but he led an unlikely Tennessee team to a deep SEC Playoff run. His size and how that impacts his scoring output is the biggest question he has to answer, but he still looks to be a solid playmaker and point-of-attack defender.
Malaki Branham was not on my Big Board 1.0 and didn’t make his debut until March on my 4.0 release. He debuted at #23 and has done nothing but prove himself worthy of a Top 10 selection. His youth as a freshman, along with his mature game, make him a highly desirable prospect in my eyes. He projects to be a good third-best player on an NBA team, with the chance to potentially be slightly better. He proved his worth on a team that featured EJ Liddell, even having nights where he looked to be the best player on the floor while not being projected to be ready this soon.
10. Then: Caleb Houstan | Now: AJ Griffin
11. Then: Hugo Besson | Now: Jalen Duren
Hugo Besson was a player I was projecting to do more of what he did in France while playing for the NBL. That didn’t happen. He took a massive tumble down my rankings as the season wore on, but there is a universe out there that he plays up to the role of a volume scorer off of the bench. His assist totals took a hit, as he was asked to play a role that was unfamiliar to him—not to mention his countryman and teammate, Ousmane Dieng, took a good chunk of the season to find his footing in a more physical league. Besson getting experience to captain an offense as a finisher might have added some tools to his box, but he just didn’t look comfortable playing in that role.
Duren has good value here, as he has the potential to be a top-half-of-the-league center if he hits. I’ve valued him at different levels throughout the year, as he is the lowest he’s ever been on any of my boards. The ascension of Dyson Daniels and the inclusion of Shaedon Sharpe has resulted in Duren ultimately falling to 11th. Duren has some nice passing chops to go along with his rebounding and screen-setting. Upon watching more film, I’ve also been infatuated with his ability to switch onto the perimeter on pick-and-rolls.
12. Then: AJ Griffin | Now: Keegan Murray
It’s very peculiar that I had AJ Griffin at 12 at first, then thrust him up into the Top 5 at one point, and never had him lower than 6th until my 6.0 edition, to where he’s now 10th in my rankings. The fact that he’s played this well while coming off of major injuries is something that could be spun into a positive, but the fact that he’s had major lower-body injuries is concerning. His shooting was remarkably efficient, albeit unorthodox. The defense was projected to be NBA-level, but there were some aspects that left me wanting more. It’s fascinating that injuries could be what makes him either a steal or a scare, but the talent is enough to target him around this range.
13. Then: Harrison Ingram | Now: Jaden Hardy
14. Then: Terrence Shannon Jr. | Now: Tari Eason
There was admitted projection (as if draft evaluation isn’t a projection game anyway) with my lottery choice of Shannon Jr. With injuries and role changes all occurring during this season, Shannon Jr. is a player who has all of the ability to be an NBA player, but the production didn’t justify my initial placement of him.
Tari Eason didn’t even make my 1.0, but rocketed up my 2.0 as he debuted at the 13th spot in January. Since the new year, Eason has done nothing but show that he refuses to be outworked. His defense figures to be something that will allow him to see playing early time, but his improved three-point shooting and underlying passing skill could help him to be a mainstay in NBA rotations.
15. Then: Nikola Jovic | Now: Jeremy Sochan
16. Then: Dyson Daniels | Now: Ochai Agbaji
17. Then: Roko Prkacin | Now: Mark Williams
Roko Prkacin seems to be one of those prospects that counters the new “pre-draft” philosophy that has spread like wildfire across social media this season. He withdrew from last year’s draft with the hope of rising in this class. That isn’t likely to happen. With injury hampering his overall output, Prkacin sits in the second round to undrafted range for most analysts.
Mark Williams began this season as a First Rounder, fell as low as 42, and now is a dark horse lottery prospect. What really pushed him into the middle portion of my Top 30 is how he maintained his productivity in the NCAA tournament against a wide variety of frontcourts and coverages. His chemistry with Paolo Banchero was a facet of Duke’s success that, even now, seems unheralded. An athletic lob threat, Williams is now in his own tier of centers on my board—something I wasn’t expecting early.
18. Then: Ousmane Dieng | Now: Patrick Baldwin Jr.
Ousmane Dieng ended up right around where I projected him before the season kicked off. I alluded to the fact that his game took a while to meet the expectations that followed him to New Zealand. His frame was a major concern, and that concern bore out in the early going. That being said, Dieng did find his footing in the latter portion of the year as he became more comfortable against more physical play. His slithery-ness helped him to get past the initial defender, and that makes his court vision and passing accuracy more dangerous.
While everyone knows that Patrick Baldwin Jr. went to play for his dad on a lower-level school, while everyone knows that he played with a team that was in the basement in terms of offensive and defensive productivity, it seems like some fans and scouts aren’t ready to look past that. “PBJ” is roughly 6’10” and touts a buttery stroke. Our own Evan Wheeler had a fantastic breakdown on the ancillary aspects of his game—namely the passing ability. With players being taken highly in spite of underproductive college/international seasons, or without games played at all, it’s not hard to imagine a team being willing to pardon the decision Baldwin Jr. made in his collegiate commitment.
19. Then: Peyton Watson | Now: EJ Liddell
From one underperforming prospect to another, Peyton Watson was much higher on some boards before the season began. The decision to play for UCLA now looks like it wasn’t the best, but it was a choice that he made without knowing if Johnny Juzang would return or not. With title expectations for the year, the Bruins would often go large stretches where Peyton wasn’t granted opportunities to develop as a player. To be more critical, when he did play he did not show all of the skills that made him a sure-fire first-round pick. I think his role in the NBA will look significantly different compared to what was asked of him in college.
EJ Liddell was criminally underrated by almost everyone coming into the year. I had him 45th on the 1.0 Big Board and didn’t have him in the first round until March. EJ is considered undersized to play the “4” in the NBA by some, but I believe that he plays big enough to succeed at that position. He’s more bouncy that you’d initially anticipate; his second bounce is very nice. Liddell is also a solid weakside rim protector. Offensively, he has the tools to finish around the rim and the ability to space the floor.
20. Then: Jean Montero | Now: TyTy Washington Jr.
21. Then: MarJon Beauchamp | Now: Nikola Jovic
22. Then: Bennedict Mathurin | Now: Dalen Terry
I have stated several times throughout this process that, for whatever reason, I did not want to believe that Mathurin would be a top prospect in this class. On one of my first episodes of Draft Capital, Albert Ghim and I both thought that Bennedict would not make a big enough leap. We were wrong. He improved as a playmaker during the season, and showed that his athleticism was a factor in his defense and rebounding.
How fitting (and entirely unintentional) is it that Dalen Terry now sits where his Arizona teammate was initially placed? Terry played his tail off all season to where some folks were giving him some second round consideration. What vaulted him up my (and most) boards was the injury Kerr Kriisa sustained as the season was coming to a close. The fact that the increase in usage also gave birth to an efficient increase in productivity was enough for me to give Terry a first round grade late in the year. He’s a dog defensively, and can do some fun things in a connecting role.
23. Then: TyTy Washington Jr. | Now: Ousmane Dieng
24. Then: JD Davison | Now: Kennedy Chandler
25. Then: Ochai Agbaji | Now: MarJon Beauchamp
26. Then: Mark Williams | Now: Ismael Kamagate
27. Then: Max Christie | Now: Peyton Watson
28. Then: Keegan Murray | Now: Ryan Rollins
You thought I skipped out on Keegan Murray discussion? You thought I didn’t like him because of where I ranked him, huh? I wanted to have this conversation here because I wanted to show that I’ve always respected and valued Keegan Murray. In December, I was willing to look past the narrative of the “Mid Major Killer” and give credit to the game that proved to be incredibly real. Murray can get his shot up from all levels of the floor and gives some defensive support as a weakside rim protector.
Ryan Rollins was not a prospect that made one of my Big Boards until my 3.0 in February. He didn’t earn a first round grade until my 6.0 rendition. Rollins has an underrated handle and, like Johnny Davis, I would describe his game a mature. In Toledo he showed that he could get to his spots with relative ease. His mid range is spectacular, but his efficiency from deep has some folks worried. His height and playstyle somewhat limits his versatility, but he projects to be a solid bucket-getter if everything hits.
29. Then: Tyrese Hunter | Now: Gabriele Procida
30. Then: Trevor Keels | Now: Jake LaRavia
1.0 vs 6.0- The Second(ish) Rounders
31. Then: Julian Champagnie | Now: Bryce McGowens
Julian Champagnie started the season pushing the border between the two rounds but has since taken a steep decline. His shooting ability from deep, combined with his frame, made him instantly a favorite in the draft community. However, he has shown to be more of a chucker from distance as opposed to a polished, well-rounded scorer. His defense was solid this year, but nothing that can be relied upon in the NBA.
Bryce McGowens has hovered around this range through most of the season, with my latest ranking of him being the highest. His shooting from deep is the real question as to whether or not he’ll hit his highest of heights in the NBA. He has a solid handle for a player that profiles to play the classic “Two” or “Three” on the court. His defense leaves a lot to be desired, but there are some indications that he’ll improve to be, at least, an average defender positionally. His ability to create contact and draw fouls points to a high intellect and feel.
32. Then: Michael Devoe | Now: Kendall Brown
33. Then: Allen Flanigan | Now: Wendell Moore Jr.
Allen Flanigan, if he were healthy for the season, could have been a real contender to be drafted. He has good size and strength that tends to translate well. There are indications that he could be a connector and even a floor spacer. Missing the opportunity to get real run with Jabari Smith Jr. and Walker Kessler was a bummer, but Flanigan still has a path to make his NBA dreams a reality.
I hate—and I mean H-A-T-E—that I have Wendell Moore Jr. outside of the first round. I still believe he could yield that type of value, but the players I have in front of him have the ceiling that is too hard to pass up. That being said, Moore Jr. is a 40% three-point shooter, an ACC All Defensive Team member, and a player who averaged over four assists per game.
34. Then: Yannick Nzosa | Now: Vince Williams Jr.
Being completely honest, I tried very hard to buy in to the Yannick Nzosa love that was ever apparent at the start of the year. I saw the length and athleticism, but the basketball part of his game was hard for me to believe in. Sure, the length theoretically makes him intriguing, but the offense was shown to be an issue. Yannick could still turn into a very good prospect, but he played his way out of my Top 80 by the beginning of March.
Inversely, Vince Williams Jr. didn’t crack my Top 100 until the beginning of February—as he debuted at #94. By March, he was ranked 43rd. He climbed to 30th in April, and then settled here at 34 for my final board. He has a very versatile game, where he is wing-sized but has experience playing as a power forward. He has very few weaknesses in his game, but doesn’t do much of anything at an elite level. Perhaps his versatility and how well-rounded his game is could be considered elite in a unique way. Look for him to make a Dorian Finney-Smith, Jae Crowder, or Torrey Craig type of impact.
35. Then: Tyson Etienne | Now: Jalen Williams
36. Then: Bryce McGowens | Now: Jean Montero
Since McGowens has already been covered, I’d like to just mention that Jean Montero will be an interesting case study for the draft community. He has the resume internationally, in FIBA World Cup play, and even in the Hoop Summit of an impact player. The Overtime Elite decision was somewhat puzzling, and the evaluation of that level of competition has been difficult. He did play like he was the best player for that brand, which helps solidify how he’s played against his peers. That being said, there are still concerns with his height, efficiency, and defensive play that leave some evaluators erring on the side of caution.
37. Then: Julian Strawther | Now: Christian Braun
38. Then: Matthew Cleveland | Now: Alondes Williams
Matthew Cleveland was garnering some first-round love prior to the season kicking off, but I was hesitant. The creation ability I felt was oversold. The jumper looked a ways away from being a legit threat. The defense was nice, but nothing that left me feeling like he was going to be an anchor on that end. The fact that he is returning to school without testing the waters does seem odd, but I’m rooting for a strong season moving forward. As you can tell, the age/class at which a player declares doesn’t cloud how I value a player.
Alondes Williams had a breakout season following his transfer from Oklahoma to Wake Forest. Playing next to Jake LaRavia, Williams showed great ability to attack the rim, and he does sport one of the best passing packages in the class. The three-point shooting will be dissected and considered a point of concern, but the strength and slithery-ness he plays with is enticing. Williams also sported a high turnover rate, but it seems to be something that can be coached due to his excellent court vision.
39. Then: Ismael Kamagate | Now: Leonard Miller
Ismael Kamagate has been on my radar all season long. I’ve had him ranked as high as 22nd but, as more players have come on late in the season, I’ve had to settle with him landing at 26 ultimately. He’s an impressive, and fairly agile, offensive presence around the basket. He has nice touch and a few counters to keep the defense honest. Defensively, I buy his rim protection and rebounding. He runs the floor very well in all aspects. A little polishing is required, but there is plenty for a team to work with.
Admittedly, Leonard Miller is a tough evaluation. Don’t believe any scout that will tell you that they know exactly how he’ll pan out—for better or worse. The film shows a raw, 6’10” to 6’11” perimeter player with a little bit of a handle that can hit some stepbacks on occasion. He is a smooth runner. As is the case with most high school level prospects, the defense isn’t all that great but that doesn’t weigh too heavily in my evaluation of him. How good can he be against grown men? That’s a great question.
40. Then: Wendell Moore Jr. | Now: Christian Koloko
41. Then: Iverson Molinar | Now: Trevor Keels
42. Then: Efe Abogidi | Now: Keon Ellis
43. Then: Michael Foster Jr. | Now: Max Christie
Michael Foster Jr. has the unflattering distinction as the one G-League Ignite prospect with NBA potential who wasn’t invited to the new Rising Stars Challenge format. There is still some hope that he can play a role in the NBA. How big of a role seems to be the question. He isn’t a modern-day floor spacer or creator. He isn’t a great post defender. However, he can score efficiently in the paint—which might be enough to be drafted.
Max Christie was significantly higher on most boards before the season started. I had him as high as 19th this season, but that was more so believing a small stretch of matches was a sign of his game coming into form. It was not. Being billed as a shooter, finishing the year under 32% isn’t a great thing. His point of attack defense was nice for a large part of the season, but that’s not something I’d be looking to take in the first round. A team may take a chance on the preseason projections that he came into the season with, but I’d be more comfortable taking him here in the middle of the second.
44. Then: Jonathan Davis | Now: Caleb Houstan
Oh, you thought I wouldn’t discuss Johnny Davis? Nope. I’m going to do something you won’t see many people outside of the No Ceilings collective do: I’m admitting my wrong and apologizing. I would like to point out, though, that on my 2.0 he was promptly moved up to the 11th spot. He never left the Top 10 after that. He took a Wisconsin team that had no business being ranked among the Top 25 teams in the nation to a March Madness appearance with an injury. He gives me Brandon Roy vibes. His defense is underrated, and his playmaking is criminally underdiscussed.
Like the aforementioned Max Christie, Caleb Houstan was highly regarded as a top prospect. Some felt he could even go Top 5 in this draft. Incrementally valuing production from prospects that were given a fair chance to display their value, I had Houston ranked 10th, then dropped him to 12th, 20th, 34th, and finally to 44th throughout this process. His shooting was fairly inconsistent, and his ancillary skills didn’t show enough to justify a first round grade.
45. Then: EJ Liddell | Now: Justin Lewis
46. Then: Malcolm Cazalon | Now: Walker Kessler
47. Then: Caleb Love | Now: Kevin McCullar
48. Then: Jabari Walker | Now: Terquavion Smith
49. Then: Gabriele Procida | Now: Blake Wesley
An international prospect I liked in the early going, Gabriele Procida has climbed 20 spots and into the first round. A good athlete (not a “sneaky” one), Procida provides floor spacing, solid ancillary playmaking, and finishing ability on offense. The defense remains a question, but the frame and athleticism are there. Procida gives whatever team that could draft him a versatile scoring wing that can get hot in a hurry.
Blake Wesley has grown into one of the more divisive prospects among the draft community. He’s an athlete—no doubt about that—and he could be a very valuable guard defender. His shooting motion is a major concern, which looks to be directly contributing to his inefficiency to shoot from distance. His scoring looked erratic at times as well. He does show some very nice playmaking chops, as he can get past his initial defender.

See You Soon…
For those that have scrolled all the way through to this point, I would first like to take the time to thank you for reading the work that the entire No Ceilings family and I have put out over the last several months. Those that know me know that I am enlisted in the United States Navy. With that comes a few months at a time that I have to quietly slip away. I say that to say that this will be the last edition of The Weekend Warrior from me for the rest of this draft cycle.
This season has been a whirlwind for me. From starting my own independent newsletter and NBA Draft podcast, to signing on to No Ceilings, to being brought on to cohost the Draft Deeper podcast, I’ve enjoyed my inaugural season exclusively covering these draft prospects. I’ve gotten the opportunity to interview some incredible minds in the space. The fact that folks in the draft community have been so supportive of each other, me, and the No Ceilings family has been something I could have never anticipated. It’s something I’ve heavily leaned into.
Special thanks to Chris LeBron of the Off The Ball Network for giving me the initial space to network and create some amazing draft content. I’ll also shout out the folks from the Locked On network that have all come on as guests on my old podcast, Draft Capital. Basketball News’ Mark Schindler and Matt Babcock, Mr. Chuck from the Chucking Darts NBA Podcast, Chip Jones, CJ Marchesani, Lee Branscome, Stone Hansen, Keandre of Hoop Intellect, and Jake Walterhouse of Crashing Hoops have all made my time making content at Draft Capital tremendously special. Huge shout out to the “O.G” Chad Ford, in his farewell season covering the NBA Draft for coming onto the show. It is a career milestone and complete honor to get to do some work with him. Not to mention the friend of everyone in the draft community, Matt Pennie of the Game Theory podcast. His availability to come onto the show was something that meant a lot to me this season.
A big “Thank You” to my cohost and colleague, Nathan Grubel, for bringing me on to Draft Deeper. Getting the chance to interview Coach Adam Spinella of The Box and One podcast, Rashad Phillips of Sportstalk 2319, Ersin Demir, CJ Moore of The Athletic, Matt Pennie (second shoutout!), Jacob Polacheck of Zagsblog, and Bryce Simon of The Pistons Pulse and Detroit Bad Boys helped Nathan and I build some awesome chemistry that we’ve both received some overwhelming feedback on. Thank you to our incredible producer over at Draft Deeper, Kevin Black. Also, a big thank you to Nick Agar-Johnson for the hours he puts in editing all of the articles here on the website. A big thanks to Corey Tulaba for the amazing artwork and insight on prospects. Shoutout to the rest of the No Ceilings family: Tyler Rucker, Evan Wheeler, Tyler Metcalf, Alex of Draft Film School, Albert Ghim, and Maxwell Baumbach.
And an especially huge, huge, huge THANK YOU to the incredible subscribers, readers, viewers, and listeners in the NBA Draft space that have made all of this possible. It’s been a heck of a season, and I can’t wait to jump back in, head first, when I return. Until then, much love everybody.
