[NBA Draft]: 2021 Big Board Comparison, May

(photo courtesy of hurriyet.com.tr)

With this week’s 2021 NBA Draft Guide update by Kevin O’Connor at The Ringer, lets take a look at how his Top 30 board compares to recent updates from Jeremy Woo at Sports Illustrated and Jonathan Givony/Mike Schmitz at ESPN/Draft Express (who don’t post an update date on their best players available page, as I’m sure many of you have noticed). Alperen Sengun has been moving up the boards as analysts have dug into the more tape. O’Connor has him at #9, similar to John Hollinger from The Athletic who has him at #7, according to his recent visit with Chad Ford on this week’s NBA Big Board pod. As more big boards are updated, I’ll be adding them to this page, so make sure to check back for updates throughout the month.
