Back in September, members of the Hoops Prospects staff (Lee Branscome, TJ Brown, Riley Millett, and myself) plus two friends of the site (Dustin Barnes and Coleman Klein) got together for the first-ever HP Collaborative NBA Mock Draft.  Each participant represented multiple teams in the draft (see below), and each started with 10 picks.  Unfortunately, Lee had to leave the draft at the end of [ . . . ]

The order for the 2020 NBA Draft is finally set, but the actual draft is at least six weeks away.  This class features a ton of point guards/combo guards, and at the same time, there is a notable shortage of wings with good size and a reliable outside shot.  Also, quality rim protectors are in short supply.   There is no clear-cut top prospect this year, [ . . . ]

Hoops Prospects has been updating its mock draft since October, and even though the draft is nearly four months away, it’s time to explore each selection in detail.  The 2020 draft class has no clear-cut top prospect, with at least three players being a viable possibility to be the No. 1 overall pick.  This class features a ton of point guards/combo guards, and at the [ . . . ]

Looking Abroad and Under the Radar

February 6, 2020 R. C. Harris 0

With the college basketball season in full swing, what’s happening abroad on the hardwood often gets ignored at this time of the year.  However, it appears that international players/prospects playing abroad will have a major impact on the 2020 NBA Draft.  At the same time, small-college prospects typically do not get much attention at any time, but it’s good to be aware of them before [ . . . ]
