2019 NBA Draft Big Board

There are already hundreds of Mock Drafts on the Internet, and those get blown up by draft night based on trades and specific team needs. So, I’m flipping the script and giving a ranking of my Top 30 draft prospects. Why? Because this way I’m not stuck trying to figure out what front offices are thinking, and instead, I can stand behind my rankings down the road.

These are rankings based on players I’d want on my team for the next decade and how I feel they will develop.
