What The 2017 NBA Draft Will Look Like

The 2016 NBA Draft is complete and now it's time to look ahead to the 2017 NBA Draft. 

According to many draft experts, the 2017 class is far deeper in talent than last night's class. The class is led by Kansas freshman guard Josh Jackson and Duke's Harry Giles. Jerry Meyer of 247Sports says Jackson is the best player he's ever scouted

While the 2016 draft class had two or three potential All-Stars in the eyes of the scouts, the 2017 draft class could have double that or more. 

Here's what the top of the 2017 NBA Draft should look like.

  1. Kansas' Josh Jackson
  2. Duke's Harry Giles
  3. N.C. State's Dennis Smith
  4. Washington's Markelle Fultz
  5. Florida State's Jonathan Isaac
  6. Kentucky's De'Aaron Fox
  7. France's Frank Ntilikina
  8. Duke's Jayson Tatum
  9. UCLA's Lonzo Ball
  10. California's Ivan Rabb
