4. Portland Trail Blazers - Ron Holland, F, G League Ignite

It's been a rough start to the rebuild for the Portland Trail Blazers. The hope is that Scoot Henderson will eventually figure things out but without that guarantee, the Blazers will be star-hunting if they do end up with a top 5 pick in the 2024 NBA Draft. One player who could fit the mold of a high-ceiling prospect in the top 5, depending on how the first few picks of the draft go, is Ron Holland.

Holland is an intriguing offensive-minded wing that carries star potential. Considering the Blazers aren't going to keep Jerami Grant long-term, there could be an immediate need on the wing. And perhaps Holland could be part of the long-term resolution for the team.

As has been evident through the first few games with the G League Ignite this season, consistency is going to make or break him as an NBA Draft prospect. If he can find a way to excel as a consistent offensive player, I have a hard time seeing him fall out of the top 5 of this year's draft class. However, inconsistency can change everything for him as a prospect.
