In the latest edition of our NBA Mock Draft, the Washington Wizards snag a potential star building block and the Chicago Bulls make a bold selection in the top 10.

With the NBA season continuing to take shape, a few of the worst teams in the league have to have already been starting their scouting process. This year's NBA Draft class will take time to develop but the early indications are that this could be a down year. Nevertheless, the hope is that there will still be a few prospects that could develop into stars down the line.

And who are we to limit talent to what they can and/or can't do? As we continue down the very early stages of the draft process and begin to learn more and more about this year's class, let's dig into our NBA Mock Draft 2.0.

1. Detroit Pistons - Isaiah Collier, G, USC

For a team that may end up retooling their roster again this offseason, everything could be on the table heading into the 2024 NBA Draft. With the way Isaiah Collier has started the season at USC, he's certainly going to be in the conversation to be selected No. 1 overall all throughout the season if he keeps playing at this level.

Right now, there's a sense that the Pistons could be down on Jaden Ivey. If that is indeed the case, the Pistons could be open to adding another talented guard in this year's NBA Draft. Collier could be an option for a Pistons team that needs a steady backcourt mate for Cade Cunningham. Collier is putting up efficient offensive numbers and could be viewed as a fit.

At this point in the draft season, he's certainly a prospect to keep a close eye on.
