NBA Draft Ready Players


NBA Draft Ready Players

It’s that time of year again. Everyone who’s in for the full measure has cleared all the hurdles. The 2018 NBA Draft gets underway Thursday, June 21 at the Barclays Center (site of an ACC Tournament or two) in Brooklyn.

Ten teams from the conference are represented among the Top 100 prospects listed by Sports Illustrated. The top school being Duke with 5 players. With 2 players each are Miami, North Carolina, Wake Forest and Louisville. Boston College, Virginia, Georgia Tech, Clemson and Notre Dame each contribute 1 player to the list.

Are these all the players available for the draft? No, but these are the names most likely to find a spot on a bench rather than heading overseas to get playing time.
