Brett Siegel’s 2018 NBA Draft Big Board – December 2, 2017

Can you believe we are already a month into the college basketball season? It feels likes games just started yesterday! Over the past month, we have seen some breakout performances from familiar names, as well as new names. Who will see their draft stock burn and who will see it rise as conference play slowly approaches?

With Michael Porter Jr. out after having back surgery, how will that shake up the Top 5, as well as his own draft stock?

NBA Draft Analyst Brett Siegel has reassembled his 2018 NBA Draft Big Board. Check out where he ranks some familiar names from last year’s college basketball season with all the newcomers to the college basketball world!

From all of us at College Pride Press, we wish everyone Happy Holidays and a wonderful start to 2018!
