- Victor Wembanyama, Metropolitans 92 (France)
Wembanyama has been the consensus No. 1 choice for a year. He possesses a skill set never seen. He’s impressed scouts with his fluidity, shooting, and ball skills within a 7’4” frame. Defensively, his long wingspan allows him to guard the wing and protect the rim. Whoever gets the No. 1 pick will select Wembanyama and build its team around him.

Henderson had an uneven second year with G League Ignite, dealing with a concussion that caused him to miss time and struggle with turnovers and production. His upside as a potential primary ballhandler is enormous, and it’s worth remembering he played much of this G League season as an 18-year-old against professionals. He can play in a fast transition offense or in the half-court.

Miller had a poor NCAA tournament but still established himself as an elite prospect during his freshman campaign. Off-court controversy from his connection to the shooting death of Jamea Jonae Harris may deter teams. But he wasn’t charged. Provided NBA teams are comfortable with Miller, he’s worth a top-5 pick. Given his size and shooting ability, he’s what the NBA looks for. His floor is high as a wing shooter. He also showed flashes of playmaking ability this summer. He’s a solid shot blocker and shows good awareness on the defensive end
