Sharpening the Top of the Draft

Canadian Basketeer and ESPN’s top 2022 NCAA class prospect Shaedon Sharpe has suddenly been declared eligible for the 2022 NBA Draft. We will now look into first, who Sharpe is and second, what this means for the 2022 NBA Draft.

Sharpe is listed at 6’6 200 with a +6 wingspan. Shaedon may or may not play for coach John Calipari’s Kentucky Wildcats as he prepares for his NBA future. The incredibly athletic guard has been getting comps to Zach LaVine for years but I would be afraid to take those for granted till I do more film study. 

Sharpe’s Athletic fit and ability to score at all three levels will make him immediately in the running for a lotto pick and with a handful of nice games I could see him vaulting himself into the first round pick conversation. Sharpe is instantly the best wing of a weak crop. 

Currently I am slotting Sharpe in at 5 in a three man tier with Purdue’s dynamo guard Jaden Ivey and Auburn’s Feakish forward Jabari Smith jr. Look for the Magic, Pistons, Pacers, Rockets, Thunder, and Pelicans to all be chomping at the bit for him.
