Draft Spurs 2023 NBA Draft Big Boards

The college basketball season is upon us as games begin on Monday, November 7. So now is the perfect time to prepare yourself with some big 2023 NBA draft charts. While I’ve written about top prospects for schools like Duke and Arkansas, they barely paint the whole picture the class. This should help everyone search for specific players throughout the college basketball season.

Below are the NBA Draft 2023 Big Boards for Ben (me) and my Project Spurs colleague Evan Townsend. These are full two-round draws of 60 names, one for each draft pick. The projections are side by side separated by a circle so you can see where we differ. Below, we’ll highlight some of the biggest names we’re high on and why.

Evan’s 2023 NBA Draft Big Picture Analysis

Evan praised Arkansas winger Jordan Walsh. Walsh has usually been mocked as the guy just outside the lottery, but Evan has other ideas. Here’s what he has to say about the 6-foot-7, 205-pound freshman.

“[I saw] Jordan Walsh in person and witness[ed] his willingness to stay on ground with the second and third units, moving to multiple positions while keeping the Longhorns’ most opposite wings on the ground. he is a lottery pick in my opinion and has an NBA ready frame today.

Evan may seem a little low on Matthew Cleveland as a second-rounder, but Evan also thinks he could jump depending on how he plays at Florida State this season. The 6-foot-7, 200-pound second player could be special.

“Matthew Cleveland has a shot at being THE GUY now at Florida State, but is he ready for the role? Will he shoot himself in the first round? Is he showing improvement in his outside game? Honestly, I don’t think so. He’s a second rounder at the moment. He could definitely find his way into the back of an NBA rotation one day.

Now that you’ve entered Evan’s mind, you can compare it to my big picture.

Oregon’s Kel’el Ware is a bit high right now and that’s just based on his potential. He will need to show that he can be consistent and can be more than a dunk and lob target. The debate between him and Dereck Lively II is basically a high ceiling/low floor (Ware) and low ceiling/high floor (Lively) discussion that often occurs between great men like these two.

Florida State’s Baba Miller may be a little weak, but with his 16-game suspension (nearly half a season), he’ll have to show a lot of what he can do in a short amount of time. He’ll have to build chemistry with his teammates in real games and in conference games to boot. His potential is intriguing and what put him in the first round before the NCAA decided to cut his season short.

Duke’s Kyle Filipowski is an intriguing prospect as he has great offensive tools and could even get through an attack. This season he will have to show that he can move his feet and play some defense if he wants to advance to the first round. From now on, he sits squarely in the second round.
