[NBA Draft]: 2021 Big Board Comparison, June (updated on 6/30)

6/30 update: Chad Ford just posted an update for his NBA Big Board site which has Scottie Barnes moving to #4, and McBride, Hyland and Trey Murphy moving into the 20’s. Check back next week as he will be posting 31-80 on his board, at which time I’ll update this post.

I’ve also included John Hollinger’s Top 20 board from his June 22nd article at The Athletic, which does not include three sleepers he mentions: Roko Prkacin, Herb Jones, and Neemias Queta.

June big boards are coming out as the deadline to declare for the NBA Draft passed on May 30. There’s been lots of movement since last month across the different boards, so lets compare boards by Chad Ford at NBA Big Board (updated with the 2nd half of his big board on 6/10), Jonathan Wasserman at Bleacher Report, and Sam Vecenie at The Athletic. 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.

[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.
