Now that the NCAA tournament has come and gone, we figured it’d be a great time to preview the upcoming NBA draft! Since Matt and I aren’t draft gurus ourselves, we’d decided to ask for some backup, so we brought on Adam Spinella.

Spinella is the Assistant Men’s Basketball coach at Dickinson College, and currently covers the draft on his personal blog, The Box and One. He also writes for SB Nation’s CelticsBlog, and you can follow more of his draft and NBA coverage on his YouTube channel.

In this episode we focus heavily on the (currently) projected Top 5 picks in Cade Cunningham, Evan Mobley, Jalen Green, Jalen Suggs and Jonathan Kuminga.

Other draft related topics include

  • Best player outside the top 5
  • Players that fit Troy Weaver’s identity
  • Baylor players at the next level
  • Franz Wagner and Aaron Henry projections

All that and more in this week’s episode!
