NBA Draft Prospects: Top 5 Wings
The NBA season never rests. And for us hoops junkies, that is a great, great thing.
While the shine is still bright on the Larry O'Brien Trophy -- and while we continue to revel in the greatness that was the Golden State Warriors' 2016-17 season -- we have already moved into the first phase of the offseason: The NBA Draft.
We here at numberFire decided to give you a primer on the players most likely to make a name for themselves in the professional ranks, so we're breaking down the top of a loaded 2017 NBA Draft in three installments -- point guards, wings, and big men.
We've already covered this year's star-studded class of floor generals, so it's time to turn our attention to the wings. By wings, we're talking about the combination of off-ball guards and small forwards, and this Draft has some good ones, with Kentucky's Malik Monk, Kansas' Josh Jackson and Duke's Jayson Tatum near the top of everybody's board.
The question becomes, who are the five wings that should land at the top of the lottery?
