    NBA Draft Big Board FAQ

    What is an NBA Draft Big Board?

    An NBA Draft Big Board is a list of the top eligible basketball prospects, or “best remaining players,” often created by an analyst, draft expert, or avid fan. A Big Board can change throughout the season, leading up to the draft, due to players’ performances, injuries, and more.

    How is an NBA Draft Big Board different than an NBA Mock Draft?

    An NBA Mock Draft is created with the intention of projecting the order of teams drafting and the players that those teams will draft. An NBA Draft Big Board lists out the creator’s opinion on the best prospects available, which is quite different than a Mock Draft.

    How many players are listed on an NBA Draft Big Board?

    It depends. Usually, the creator of an NBA Draft Big Board will list out their top 30 players, similar to this list, or they could be even more extensive and rank their top 60-100 players that are eligible for the NBA Draft.

    How different can one NBA Draft Big Board be from others?

    NBA Draft Big Boards can vary greatly between analysts, fans, or experts. For instance, certain collegiate or international players could be listed in the top 10 or top 15 on one NBA Draft Big Board but could be completely excluded from another.

    How accurate are NBA Draft Big Boards?

    This is what can make NBA Draft Big Boards so fun: it varies. Even elite prospects sometimes don’t work out at the next level, and comparing Big Boards is an interesting way to see how accurate or inaccurate someone’s projections turn out..
