These five players are the cream of the 2018 draft crop. Each one of these guys is unique in their own way and could rise to stardom based on their strengths.
Out of all of them, Marvin Bagley III has perhaps the most complicated route to stardom. He doesn’t exactly have a position in the NBA, but is uber-athletic and will likely forge himself into a lineup somewhere.
Mohamed Bamba is a player full of potential and upside if he can ever reach it. He’s extremely long, but has a lot of work to do on his fundamentals. If everything pans out, he could be a three-point shooting, rim protecting demon.
Jaren Jackson Jr. has one of the highest floors in the draft and is typically considered a safe prospect. He’s more defensive oriented and should be a solid player at that end of the floor at worst.
Luke Doncic and Deandre Dayton are the best of the best. Doncic could become a playmaking fiend while Dayton can turn into a do-it-all, dominant big man. You can’t go wrong selecting either two with the first overall pick, although, Ayton appears to be pulling ahead.
