The 2023 NBA Draft will take place Thursday, with 58 picks officially being made in this year’s event. The San Antonio Spurs hold the No. 1 overall pick and are highly likely to take Victor Wembanyama, but the draft can truly go in any direction after that selection.

Here’s a look at who we believe are the top 50 prospects in this year’s draft, using a variety of mock draft intel, our own projections and the production on the court up to this point. We’ve once again tiered these prospects under different ceilings, ranging from superstar potential to quality rotation player potential. The names are not in any particular order, although the cohorts do give you a good idea of how we view the class.
