Updated NBA Prospect Comparisons


Updated NBA Prospect ComparisonsHere is my updated version of prospect comparisons for players that could have a future in the NBA or overseas. I have reevaluated the playing style of some players and noted where individuals have improved or declined.  The (P) is for the prospect, (BC) is for best case with a pro example, and (WC) is worst case with a pro example. If you don’t see one of your favorite players, they may appear in part two, which I will have in a couple days. Feel free to give your own examples if you disagree with my comparisons.
