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:

Cade Cunningham, PG, Oklahoma StateCunningham is the best bet to end up as the No. 1 pick in the 2021 NBA draft. Listed At 6’8” and 220 pounds, the 19-year-old has extraordinary size for his position, which gives him versatility on defense and an improved ability to finish at the rim.

He also excels when it comes to creating shots for his teammates with his advanced basketball IQ, ability to read the floor, and passing prowess. He’s an extremely polished and complete player without significant holes in his game.

Evan Mobley, PF/C, USCMobley has an enticing combination of length and mobility which should make the seven-footer a valuable defender and rim protector. He also possesses some rare gifts on the other end of the floor for a man his size.

The 19-year-old is a capable ball handler, a strong passer, and doesn’t lack shooting potential either. His ceiling is extremely high, but he needs to add some weight and strength to battle with NBA big men in the paint.

Jalen Suggs, PG, Gonzaga — Suggs is a rising prospect who is impressing teams with his athleticism, competitiveness, and ability to finish at the rim. He’s also a strong on-ball defender, which significantly raises his floor.

There’s still room for him to improve his shooting range and his half-court playmaking, but there’s no reason to believe he can’t make both of those things happen.

Ziaire Williams, SF, Stanford — Williams profiles as a knockdown shooter and athletic, switchable wing defender. Whether he can be more than that will depend on if he can find ways to attack the rim in the halfcourt.

If all of his offense comes from outside shooting, he may end up as more of a role player, but if he can develop a more sophisticated offensive game there is potential for him to be a top-notch scorer.

Jalen Johnson, SF, Duke — Johnson is an extremely gifted playmaker for his size (6’9”), and is particularly dangerous running in transition thanks to his elite athleticism. Any early-season foot injury could affect his stock, but he has a tantalizing offensive ceiling.

Concerns about Johnson’s defense and three-point shooting should keep him from the very top of the draft, but he’s an extremely exciting player to watch at the NCAA level.

Scottie Barnes, PF, Florida State — Barnes is a polished, high-IQ player without many holes in his game. While he doesn’t possess outstanding athleticism or a deadly shot, he’s a versatile and instinctual defender who’s drawn some comparisons to Draymond Green.

His ceiling might not be quite as high as some of the other guys on this list, but he’s an extremely safe bet to be a positive contributor at the NBA level.

James Bouknight, SG, UConn — Bouknight is a talented scorer who can get buckets in the lane or with his strong pull-up jumper. He can create his own shot, but he hasn’t shown much creating for others, which could limit his offensive potential.

The 20-year-old is also on the skinny side at 6’4” and 175 pounds, and could stand to bulk up to better stand his ground on defense.

Brandon Boston Jr., SF/SG, Kentucky — Boston Jr. is similar to Bouknight in that he excels at creating his own shot, but could improve as a playmaker. He could also honehis three-point shooting skills, which have been dismal early in his college career.

On the plus side, Boston Jr. isn’t a one-dimensional player; he should contribute on defense and profiles as a strong rebounder thanks to his top-notch athleticism. The 19-year-old will be a divisive player come draft time, as some teams will buy into his potential, while others will steer clear of someone whose offensive game looks rather inefficient at this point.

Moses Moody, SG, Arkansas — Moody is a shooter, plain and simple. He doesn’t wow NBA evaluators with his athleticism or playmaking, and he’s unlikely to graduate beyond a “3-and-D” role.

That’s OK, though. He’s really good at what he does, even if it is fairly limited, and there’s almost no bust potential here. If you draft Moody, you know what you’re getting.

Jaden Springer, SG, Tennessee — Springer is a high-effort player on both ends of the floor who contributes in a variety of areas without truly excelling in any one.

The 6’5” guard is capable of getting buckets, but his efficiency can be dubious and it’s worth wondering if he could hold down a high-usage role at the next level.

Keon Johnson, SG/SF, Tennessee — Springer’s teammate has a higher ceiling than him thanks to his dynamism in transition and backdoor cuts in the half-court. Overall, he’s an excellent athlete, which also helps him on defense.

Johnson plays above the rim, but he’s not much of an on-ball creator or catch-and-shoot threat. That makes him a better bet to thrive in a smaller role rather than become the primary option for a winning team.

Caleb Love, PG/SG, North Carolina — Love is a capable scorer and ball handler who also has the size (6’5”) and strength to contribute on the other side of the floor.

There are questions about his ability to read the floor and run an offense as a full-time point guard, but he has a chance to succeed as a combo guard with a focus on scoring.

Day’Ron Sharpe, C, North Carolina — While traditional centers aren’t sexy picks in the NBA these days, Sharpe is a good bet for teams who need someone to protect the rim against fellow bigs, clean the glass, and score down low..

The lack of a jump shot means Sharpe is no unicorn, but sometimes a solid workhorse is worth investing in.

Josh Christopher, SG, Arizona State — Christopher can get a bucket from beyond the arc, from midrange, or above the rim, and therein lies the vast majority of his value. Nothing about his game other than his scoring stands out, but he’s good enough at racking up points that it hasn’t tended to matter.

At the NBA level, Christopher is probably more of an offensive jolt off the bench than a top option, but guys with his profile often play important roles for winnings teams—and find themselves in Sixth Man of the Year conversations.

Greg Brown, PF, Texas — Brown has all the tools to be an impact player, but they don’t always come together in a cohesive way. Theoretically, he can be a versatile defender who protects the rim and guards every position on the floor while using his elite athleticism to threaten the paint on offense. He’s even shown the ability to hit the three-pointer at times.

In practice, Brown is inconsistent in every facet of his game at this point and is more of a project than a complete player. He might have a higher range of outcomes than anyone else in the draft.
