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.
Best Case Scenario: Gary Harris
Worst Case Scenario: Elfrid Payton
Most Likely Scenario: Poor Mans Spencer Dinwiddie | Poor Mans Malcolm Brogden
Best Case Scenario: Karl Anthony Towns
Worst Case Scenario: Myers Leonard
Most Likely Scenario: Christian Wood | Thomas Bryant
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.
