2021 NBA Mock Draft Update

Update 7/27/19

Not much movement this time of year. Jalen Green regains a spot in the top 2 after his Peach Jam performance. And Jalen Johnson moves up to no.3.

Big, bad, Ibou Dianko Badji moves into the lottery. He's one of the most intriguing prospects in this class, possessing insane measurables and guard-like agility in a monster frame. He's got a long ways to go but his ceiling is in the stratosphere. We'll be tracking his progress closely.

Jalen Suggs moves up a few spots into the mid first round, while Kai Jones moves down a few spots.

Update 7/03/19

Another superstar prospect and future lottery pick is headed to Duke: Jalen Johnson of Glendale, Wisconsin is a 6-8 forward who handles the ball and runs the break like a point guard, showing next level court vision and an advanced feel for the game. Johnson is a plus athlete, even by NBA standards and is a sure-fire one & done lottery pick, who could be in the conversation for no.1 overall. Coach K does it again. And again and again and again.


Update 6/15/19
Major movement for Makur Maker after a strong spring. Maker is a big-bodied guard/center with an intriguing skill set. He fits the mold of modern big who can stretch the floor, pass the ball and he shows impressive open court ball handling ability and the ability to rip and run. Maker is up to no.4 overall in our 2021 mock and is in the conversation for no.1 overall.

Lok Wur is a new comer to the mock, landing at no.30 overall. Wur is far from a finished product but based on athleticism and upside alone he gets consideration as a potential first round pick.  Not saying he's the next Giannis but he shows the same type of flashes as Giannis showed as an 18 year old in Greece. Wur is a blur in the open court, gliding past defenders with long strides, and exploding to the rim with ease. Keep an eye on him over the next year or two.

Update 5/28/19
Probably the hottest name right now is Cade Cunningham. The big point guard has elevated his stock to the point of being in the conversation for no.1 in his class. At this point we have him listed no.4 overall in our 2021 mock behind Jalen Green, Evan Mobley and Jalen Johnson.

Adam Miller is another riser (and another big point guard). AceWolf is a crafty ball handler who finds angles well when driving the ball and is a creative finisher in the lane. He's got the size to shoot over defenders and can really get buckets. He's moved up our list to no.22 in the 2021 mock.

Jaden Springer is currently ranked no.16 in the mock but after a great end to the HS season and a good showing this spring, he's looking like a potential lottery pick.

And of course we're all waiting for/anticipating the end of the one-and-done rule, which could mean the top prospects from the 2021 recruiting class could be in this draft as well. Better get to know the name Terrance Clarke!
