NBA Mock Draft: Ranking top 10 small forward prospects of the 2023 class
NBA Mock Draft: The small forward position is top-heavy in the 2023 NBA Draft class.
The NBA Draft Lottery is less than two weeks away and we’re beginning to get a greater understanding of what we can expect heading into the 2023 NBA Draft. The official draft date is scheduled for June 22 with the draft lottery set for May 16.
We’ve already made it through ranking the top point guards and shooting guards and now it’s time to pivot to the wing (or small forward) position. In a league where we’ve seen many of the dominating superstars come from the small forward position, this has become somewhat of a luxury position in the Association. Unfortunately, at least for now, the small forward position (at least in my opinion) is one of the weakest positions in this year’s NBA Draft.
As we get closer and closer to the 2023 NBA Draft, we rank the top best small forward prospects of this year’s draft class.
10. Leonard Miller, G League Ignite
Leonard Miller is one of the most interesting forward prospects in this year’s NBA Draft class. You can make the argument that he’s probably more of a power forward than a small forward but considering how skilled he is, there’s no capping what he can be at the next level.
Miller is extremely raw but has the skill set that any team would be excited about. But there are big questions about whether or not he’ll be able to develop in a way that allows him to reach his ceiling. And that’s the biggest reason why he’s ranked No. 10 at the small forward position heading into the NBA Draft.
