The 2023 rookie draft scheduled to be held on June 23 (Korean time) is called the ‘Victor Wembanyama Draft’. Victor Wembanyama, one of the top talents in NBA history, is drawing all attention.
However, there are some promising players who are not noticed because they are overshadowed by Wembanyama. If you’re not a fan of the San Antonio Spurs, who secured the first pick, maybe it’s wise to focus on the prospects below them.
There are so many attractive prospects in this draft. Draft depth is also evaluated as a great draft.
Arthur Thompson is a promising prospect to be analyzed in the fifth round of ‘Scouting Report’. As Amen Thompson and his twins, it is noteworthy that the two players participated in this draft together. Both players have similar playstyles, and their top picks are certain. It’s a twin war.
