Lots of disagreement across the board (pun intended) on this first round of our big board comparison for the 2024 draft. With G League Ignite facing off against the Perth Wildcats tonight, it’s time to dig in! Check back for updates and follow me at @hoopsdistillery on Twitter for update notifications.

And just like that, the 2023 Draft is in the rearview mirror and our focus can start to shift to 2024 prospects. As is tradition each year, many of the top NBA Draft analysts release a mock draft within a few hours or days of the previous cycle ending in order to kick off the new season. This year we have mock drafts to compare by Jonathan Givony and Jeremy Woo/ESPN, Jonathan Wasserman/Bleacher Report, Bryan Kalbrosky/USA Today, Ricky O’Donnell/SB Nation, and our friends at Tankathon. The pick order is different for these mock drafts based on varying NBA championship odds for the 2023-2024 season–and both O’Donnell and Wasserman did not even include actual teams, just pick numbers.
