Brett Siegel’s 2018 NBA Draft Big Board

A new season of college basketball is quickly approaching and is bringing a new wave of talent with it! Who will be this year’s breakout stars? Who will see their draft stock burn and who will see it rise? And especially, who will be the #1 overall selection in the 2018 NBA Draft?

With Marvin Bagley III reclassifying and heading to Duke, how will that not only impact the top of the draft, but how will he influence those around him? All of these questions are yet to be answered, but it is never too early to start preparing for the 2018 NBA Draft!

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!
