2022 NBA Draft Prospect Rankings: Sharpe Shooters and Franchise Boosters

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. 

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