2024 NBA Draft Predictions: Complete 2-Round Forecast and Player Comparisons

As conference tournament action gets underway, NBA scouts are ramping up their efforts to evaluate talent and focus on the upcoming draft. Despite many college prospects already playing nearly 30 games this season, there is still plenty of room for improvement and movement within the draft rankings.

Kentucky’s top two guards have garnered significant attention recently, with both entering the conversation as potential top-five picks. Additionally, some prospects have already finished their seasons, leaving them with decisions to make in a draft class that is perceived as weaker compared to previous years.

It’s essential to note that some analysis in this article is based on a previous mock draft published on March 6, with all draft orders and statistics being up to date as of the latest games on Wednesday.

Top Pick Prediction: Alexandre Sarr to the Washington Wizards

French prospect Alexandre Sarr, currently playing for the Perth Wildcats, is emerging as a strong contender for the number one overall pick. Standing at 7’1″ and weighing 216 lbs, Sarr draws comparisons to Jaren Jackson Jr. His defensive impact has been evident in the NBL playoffs, recording seven blocks and showcasing his shot-altering abilities in limited minutes.

Despite his defensive prowess, Sarr’s offensive skills are also worth noting, with glimpses of three-point shooting, pull-up jumpers, and ball-handling in transition. These unique abilities for a player of his size make him an intriguing prospect for the Washington Wizards, who could benefit from his versatility and potential to change the team’s dynamic.

Second Pick Forecast: Zaccharie Risacher to the Detroit Pistons

French prospect Zaccharie Risacher, currently playing for JL Bourg-en-Bresse, is projected to be the second overall pick in the draft. Standing at 6’8″ and weighing 204 lbs, Risacher draws comparisons to Harrison Barnes. The Detroit Pistons face a decision regarding fit and talent at this spot, considering their current roster composition and priorities for player development.

Risacher’s shooting prowess, highlighted by his impressive 43.8 percent three-point shooting, makes him an attractive option for the Pistons, especially alongside ball-handling guards. While there are lingering questions about his on-ball creation and playmaking abilities, his ability to stretch the floor and make shots could be valuable for Detroit’s offense.
