Turning Our Attention to the Draft

Filed under: Uncategorized — Kevin Pelton @ 2:38 am

The NBA Draft is now a little more than a week away, and it will be the focus of our attention during that period. Already, Sebastian Pruiti kicked off our coverage by using Prospectus’ college similarity scores to highlight what makes this year’s top prospects like established NBA players. The first installment of Pruiti’s series, which is free, compares Kyrie Irving to Derrick Rose.

Dan Feldman and I will be complementing Sebastian’s analysis by focusing in on the weaknesses teams will be looking to address this offseason, starting with the draft. Dan also plans our own version of a mock draft–not a prediction of what we expect teams to do, but rather what they should do based on our assessments of their needs and the available talent.

Bradford Doolittle will chip in analysis based on his ATH score for collegians, and there will be more analysis on top of that. Stay tuned … .
