NBA Prospects to watch this year in NCAA college basketball

While a number of top basketball prospects have been seeking an alternative to the NCAA in recent years, college basketball is still where you’ll find most of the NBA’s future stars.

Here’s a list of players to watch this season who could soon be suiting up for your favorite NBA franchise:

Paolo Banchero, F, Duke

Although he doesn’t have out-of-this-world athleticism, Banchero is an extremely polished and versatile offensive force who has switchability on the other end of the floor. He should be Duke’s top threat this season and looks like a safe bet to make an NBA impact.

Chet Holmgren C/F, Gonzaga

There aren’t a lot of seven footers who can handle the ball, shoot, and make plays like Holmgren, which gives him a sky-high ceiling. The worry with the talented forward right now is a lack of durability and a slender frame that will need significant work if he’s going to compete with NBA bigs in the paint.

Caleb Houstan, F, Michigan

Scouts aren’t going to be wowed by Houstan’s flashiness, but he can defend multiple positions and consistently hit shots from beyond the arc. The Canadian gets high marks for his feel for the game, and is known to fire off some nifty passes, even if that creativity rarely extends to creating his own shot.

Jabari Smith Jr., F, Auburn

It’s clear that Smith Jr. can score using his combination of elite length and smooth shooting stroke. Almost every other aspect of his game remains a question mark, but he’s a tantalizing prospect with star potential.

Jalen Duren, F, Memphis

With a 6’9”, 235-pound frame, Duren already has the size and strength to compete at the highest level, and he’s an excellent finisher at the rim. The biggest question with him is whether he can expand his bag of tricks to include more perimeter shooting.

Jaden Ivey, G, Purdue

With great athleticism and a motor to match, Ivey has the look of a two-way contributor at the NBA level. He’s jumped up draft boards recently after arriving at Purdue with limited fanfare.

TyTy Washington, G, Kentucky

In a draft that could be low on guard talent, Washington could be enticing for clubs needing backcourt help. He’s a strong shooter with solid court awareness and leadership qualities, even if he does have a tendency to overdribble.

AJ Griffin, F, Duke

NBA teams are going to be enamored with Griffin’s combination of shooting, length, and smarts, but his inability to consistently stay healthy is a red flag.
