Jackson has been one of the hot names over the last two weeks in NBA Draft talks with some Draft Analysts having him atop their “big boards”. Jackson is making waves with his youth, his defensive acumen and his measurements. Jackson’s father played in the NBA and he has true Defensive Player of the Year ability. He is universally thought of as going either 3 to Atlanta or 4 to Memphis. NBA Draft Net compares Jackson to Jermaine Oneal.

Shai Gilgeous Alexander
Kentucky
NBA Draft Combine Measurements: 6’6” in shoes, 6’11.5” wing span, 180 pounds

Phenom Hoops Events: Phenom’s Winter Showcase, Phenom’s National Showcase
Over the last year, the rise of Gilgeous Alexander has been fun to watch. He entered Kentucky as a back up and ended the season as a starter and one and done lottery pick. The 6’6” point guard is on trend with the way the NBA is going, with fluidity and interchangeable length. He has a jet-quick first step and delivers pin-point pocket passes, with both hands, once in the lane. He is being slated to go anywhere from #6 to Orlando to #12 to LA Clippers. NBA Draft Net compares Gilgeous Alexander to Dejounte Murray.

Jerome Robinson
Boston College
NBA Draft Combine Measurements: 6’5” in shoes, 6’7.5” wing span, 188 pounds

Phenom Hoops Events: NC Phenom 150 Exposure Camps
Robinson’s rise to a possible lottery pick has been quite fascinating. He went from a lightly recruited player, chose Boston College over Richmond, to an early entry 1st Rounder. Robinson had an incredibly productive junior year, averaging 20 points, 3.5 boards and 3 assists per game. He is a smooth combo guard, with the ability to play on or off the ball. Also can shoot from beyond the arc and handle it in tight spaces. Robinson, invited to the NBA green room, is slated to go anywhere from #13 to LA Clippers to the 2nd Round. NBA Draft Net compares Robinson to CJ McCollum.

Bridges came into the year as one of the most productive players in college basketball. Bridges sophomore season saw him go for 17.1 points, 7 boards, 2.7 assists and 1.5 blocks per game. While his numbers are similar to his freshman season, his game expanded both off the bounce and in his play making skills. He also improved as a free throw shooter going from 68% to 85%. Bridges is slated to go anywhere from #14 to Denver to #16 to Phoenix. NBA Draft Net Compares Bridges to Jerome Kersey
