3. Marvin Bagley III, PF/C, Duke
Marvin Bagley is an absolute stud and embodies the scoring center the NBA is looking for in today’s game. During his only season at Duke, he averaged 21 points and 11.1 rebounds per game while shooting 61.4 percent from the field and 39.7 percent from the three-point line.
His offensive game is very diverse and is the reason he’s so high on this list. He could become the best offensive player in this draft class and one of the best in the NBA.
However, it’s his defense that has real concerns. At 6-foot-11, it’s uncertain what position he’d defend at the NBA level. Can he body with centers down low? Is he quick enough to stay in front of power forwards? Those are questions he’ll need to answer.
