NBA Draft Prospect Jalen Duren

2022 NBA Prospect Rankings: Thanksgiving Update

Happy Thanksgiving!

Notes:

Comps are for play style and role not specifically the same level.

The Thompson Twins will for now be removed until more clarity, after some internal debate that seems more fair.

Allen Flanigan, Pelle Larsson, Keyonte Johnson, and Langston Love are not ranked because of the injuries. I will re evaluate them at a later date.

Due to the growing size of the first tier I decided to split it.
