During a two-part conversation, Matt Modderno and I analyzed all the prospects likely to be selected during the June 23, 2022 NBA Draft. Part One, released on Matt’s Bleav in Wizards podcast, covered guards and forwards. Part Two, released on Kevin’s #SoWizards podcast hit wings and centers.

We have very different approaches to evaluating prospects. Matt watches a ton of college basketball while Kevin’s system relies on statistics and publicly available measures of athleticism and physical tools. We agree on many of the prospects, and their relative position in the draft, and disagree on others.

Our discussion included these players by position group:

  • Chet Holmgren, Gonzaga
  • Mark Williams, Duke
  • Christian Koloko, Arizona
  • Jalen Duren, Memphis
  • Walker Kessler, Auburn
  • Michael Foster Jr., G-League Ignite
  • Josh Minott, Memphis
  • Trevion Williams, Purdue
  • Ismael Kamagate, International
  • Yannick Nzosa, International
  • Kenneth Lofton Jr.

  • Keegan Murray, Iowa
  • Jabari Smith, Auburn
  • Paolo Banchero, Duke
  • Tari Eason, LSU

The order of the prospects isn’t final for either of us, but I wouldn’t anticipate either of us moving guys far from their current ranges.
