Rookie Wire

● By Cody Taylor
With the basketball world over a month removed from the NBA draft, many have started to look ahead to the next rookie class and which prospects may be available. The class is headlined by French phenom Victor Wembanyama, who is considered one of the top prospects in recent memory. He has performed well in the top basketball league in France and looks to already be locked in as the top pick in 2023. Elsewhere, there are several other prospects that will be worth monitoring over the course of next season. The rankings will certainly change but it can be a productive exercise to see how prospects moved up and down draft boards ahead of next year.
