Sleeper prospects at every position in the 2017 NBA Draft
The 2017 NBA Draft is days away and the rumors are swirling. We have already seen a blockbuster trade go down, showing just how volatile draft day could be. In what is considered one of the deepest drafts in some time, there will be some prospects flying under the radar that fall to solid NBA teams later in the draft. Below is one sleeper prospect as every position that could wind up being the steals of the draft.
Whichever NBA team drafts White is getting a versatile scoring point guard. At 22-years-old, White’s game has evolved to a point where he can contribute as a rookie and would be a solid backup PG in the NBA.
Ferguson decided to forego his college eligibility to play overseas in Australia. He will need some time to develop and become a more consistent shooter, but his length and instincts will help out on the defensive end of the floor.
Ojeleye is a powerful force who can play the three or four. At 6’7 he is a bit undersized but he makes up for it in effort and a solid shooting stroke (50% from the floor and 42% from 3-point range).
Swanigan has a very well-developed offensive game. He can pass, shoot from all over the court and rebounds with the best of them. With a high basketball IQ, Swanigan can play right away as a rookie. Whichever team selects the former Purdue forward is getting one heck of a ball player.
Rabb hurt his draft stock by sticking around at Cal for his sophomore season (he was a projected lottery pick in 2016). His sophomore season averages were similar to his freshman season as he averaged 17.1 points and 12.8 rebounds per 40 minutes. His efficiency decreased with an increase in his usage rate from a 65% true shooting percentage on a 20% usage rate as a freshman to a very poor 55% true shooting percentage on a 24% usage rate this season. He should be able to develop and give a team a solid big man later on in the draft.https://www.myfantasysportstalk.com/sleeper-prospects-at-every-position-in-the-2017-nba-draft/https://i2.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/TerranceFerguson.jpg?fit=1024%2C853&ssl=1https://i2.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/TerranceFerguson.jpg?resize=150%2C150&ssl=1Atlantic DivisionCentral DivisionNBANorthwest DivisionPacific DivisionRecent PostsSoutheast DivisionSouthwest Division2017 nba draft,NBA Draft,SleepersThe 2017 NBA Draft is days away and the rumors are swirling.
