NBA Draft Preview: Player Comps – @DailySportsViz


Tonight is the NBA Draft – make sure to check out the Branded Live Watch Party on the @Branded_Sports Twitter. Guaranteed a good time!

In preparation for the draft I decided to jump in the numbers and see if I could find the NBA player comp for key prospects.

Warning: All stats utilized are per 100 possessions to attempt to neutralize scheme – this way we can compare players across the board. These are my own projections, take them with a grain of salt.

Anthony Edwards

Best Case Scenario: Gary Harris

Worst Case Scenario: Elfrid Payton

Most Likely Scenario: Poor Mans Spencer Dinwiddie | Poor Mans Malcolm Brogden

Obi Toppin

Best Case Scenario: Karl Anthony Towns

Worst Case Scenario: Myers Leonard

Most Likely Scenario: Christian Wood | Thomas Bryant

Onyeka Okongwu

Best Case Scenario: Clint Capela

Worst Case Scenario: Willie Cauley-Stein

Most Likely Scenario: Jarrett Allen | Jaxson Hayes

Lamelo Ball & RJ Hampton

No player comparisons for these 2 – just thought the graphic looked cool. Personally I think RJ Hampton will be the better NBA player than LaMelo.
