In the latest edition of our NBA Mock Draft, we break down the Brandon Miller hype and take a closer look at Scoot Henderson.

Just like that, the 2023 NBA Draft is just a few months away. The NCAA College Basketball season is in the thick of its season and the NCAA Tournament is a month away. Now that the NBA Trade Deadine is officially over and the regular season is entering its final stretch (once the all-star weekend is over), the intrigue surrounding the NBA Draft is only going to rise.

And while the headlining prospect is Victor Wembanyama, there are many other prospects that deserve their attention. And one that seems to be gaining some growing hype is Alabama’s Brandon Miller.

The hype surrounding Brandon Miller is growing heading into the 2023 NBA Draft

Miller has already garnered some unfair comparisons to Kevin Durant, but that just goes to show just how special of a player many believe he can be at the next level. As a freshman, Miller is averaging 19 points and eight rebounds on 45 percent shooting from the field and 43 percent shooting from 3-point range.

Due to his measurements and overall offensive ability, Miller’s hype is likely only going to grow heading into the official draft season. And even more so if he can help lead Alabama toward a deep run in the Tournament. Let’s get to our NBA Mock Draft 2.0.
