[NBA Draft]: 2021 Big Board Comparison, July (updated 7/22)

Note: If the table is not loading correctly on mobile via Twitter, copy/paste this link in your browser and view the post on my site at https://hoopsdistillery.com/?p=2414

7/22 update: added Sam Vecenie‘s top 60 from his updated big board as part of his 2021 NBA Draft Guide for The Athletic.

7/19 update: added Kevin O’Connor‘s top 50 big board that was updated as part of The Ringer‘s NBA Draft Guide.

With the draft less than two weeks away and the NCAA withdrawal deadline passed, there have been quite a few recent updates to share, as intel has been flowing in from the Combine and team workouts. Lots of movement in the rankings = perfect timing for another Big Board comparison featuring John Hollinger from The Athletic who released his Top 70, a very interesting update to Jonathan Wasserman’s board from Bleacher Report with Cam Thomas moving up to #10, Chad Ford from NBABigBoard.com, Jeremy Woo from Sports Illustrated, and Draft Dummies, who have been doing a hell of a job on their LockedOn NBA Draft Podcast and Twitter. As big boards are posted or updated before July 29th, I’ll be adding them to this post, so make sure to check back and follow me on Twitter (@hoopsdistillery) to watch for updates.
