    If you had to re-draft players from the 2021 NBA draft, knowing what you know so far into this young season, what order would you draft them in?

    I know it's very early but it will be interesting to see how everyone is ranking players now and how different their rankings will look at the end of this year and even 3-5 years from now.

    I know quite a few players have not seen too many minutes on their team yet so I'm just doing picks 1-11.

    My first thought is that no way Alperen Sengun falls to the 16th pick. My second thought is that Chris Duarte should have been drafted much earlier as well.

    Here's mine:

    #1 - Evan Mobley
    #2 - Scottie Barnes
    #3 - Cade Cunningham
    #4 - Jalen Green
    #5 - Alperen Sengun
    #6 - Josh Giddy
    #7 - Chris Duarte
    #8 - Franz Wagner
    #9 - Davion Mitchell
    #10 - Jonathan Kuminga
    #11 - Jalen Suggs

    Don't take this too seriously. This is just for fun.

    Too early as players like Kuminga are finding their spots on Defense first and then develop Offense later.

    Scottie and Evan have been the best 2 way players so far.

    I don't think the relative value of players like Duarte and Kuminga would change much. Duarte was always expected to be one of the better rookies this year, due to being such an advanced age. Kuminga was always supposed to be a longer term play.

    I think that's basically true about Jalen Green too--he was supposed to take a bit.

    Jalen Green goes much further down than #4 if I re-drafted.

    Once he learns how to put the ball in the basket, Giddey might be the draft's best player.

    Maybe I'm overhyping, but dude seems to be like Doncic without the consistent offense.

    Kuminga for sure was seen as a bit of a project, especially his jumpshot.

    But from what I was hearing from multiple sources, was that Green would hit the ground running faster than most other rookies.

    He wasn't ranked as high in the mock drafts, and most were pretty surprised he went that early.

    So far he's shown that the Thunder made a really good selection.

    Hahaha.

    Lets be honest. If he played for another franchise, he wouldn't have a single person on this board claiming the (preposterous positive) things that are claimed about him.
