ESPN has published this week a new report with the young people who aspire to appear in the 2021 NBA Draft and the positions in which they could be chosen based on the game they are currently playing.
This variation is marked by the start of the NCAA season. They are the first sensations of the year and what happens in the United States university league is a priority for scouts of the major league franchises, something that is reflected in the analysis by journalists Jonathan Givony and Mike Schmitz.
With his performances at Oklahoma State, including a winning shot recently, Cade Cunningham triggers as presumable number 1 of the litter. Evan Mobley (2º), Jalen Green (3º), Jalen Suggs (4º), Jonathan Kuminga (5º), Jalen Johnson (6º), Keon Johnson (7º), Ziaire Williams (8º), Sharife Cooper (9º) and Corey Kispert (10º) complete the top ten places in the mock draft according to this assessment.
In the European context, the rise of the 18-year-old Turkish pivot stands out Alperen Sengun, which is placed 14º for his good performance at Besiktas. Also curious is the progressive decline in Usman Garuba, which is already out of the posts lottery pick. The Madrilenian stands 17º on this list when last year, in full explosion with Real Madrid, he reached the top-10. Garuba is being affected by his doubts by having to take a step forward and, now, the arrival at the club of Alex Tyus, who has accumulated minutes that could be for him. There are more protagonists related to Madrid: the former, passed through the quarry, Mario Nakic (69º) and Amar Sylla (71º) they are above a player from the first team, Carlos Alocen, who is in 83rd place as he did not progress enough after arriving from Zaragoza. Ibou Badji, of Barcelona, yes he would get among the sixty chosen. Other prominent European players are Filip Petrusev (31º), Juhann Bégarin (33º), Ariel Hukporti (37º), Roko Prkacin (42) y Rokas Jokubaitis (48º). Among the hundred names given is also that of Khalifa Diop, Senegalese pivot who is already one of the outstanding in Gran Canaria.
This is the most influential list, but others also agree on Garuba’s decline in predictions. The player has dropped by almost one point, reaching 6’5, his valuation ratio in the ACB, where he plays more minutes than in the Euroleague.
