G/F Josh Giddey
The NBL is considered one of the top pro leagues in the world and is becoming a hot spot for foreign talent to come out of. Not just foreign talent but displaced American talent too, as LaMelo Ball came out of this league a star in the making. Now another NBL upstart, Josh Giddey, is hoping to follow suit. Already described as the “best pure passer” in the NBA Draft, Giddey is 6’8, 205 lbs, and put up an impressive stat line at just 18 years old in the NBL. In 28 games, Giddey played 32 minutes, put up 11 points per game, 7.5 assists per game, and 7.5 rebounds per game, while shooting 43% from the floor. His big knock is his perimeter shooting, an area he needs to work on.
SF Corey Kispert
Corey Kispert is the other big name from Gonzaga this year, having helped lead the team to a 31-1 record alongside fellow list-maker, Jalen Suggs. Kispert isn’t the overall playmaker that Suggs is, but Kispert is a far better scorer. He’s an off-ball player but he’s a heck of one for sure. He shot 53% from inside the arc and 44% from behind it while averaging 18.6 points per game and pulling in five rebounds. He’s improved each and every year in college and while he’s 22 years old already, Kispert is seen by many as a ready-made NBA player who can contribute right away.
