2024 NBA Draft: Alex Sarr Leading No. 1 Pick Race
- Updated: January 11, 2024
The 2024 NBA draft is approaching, and while it lacks a clear generational prospect, a frontrunner for the No. 1 pick is emerging. Alex Sarr, a 7-foot-1 French big man playing in the National Basketball League (NBL) in Australia, is the current favorite according to a survey of 20 NBA executives and scouts. Despite a lack of consensus, Sarr’s strong performance in December has propelled him to the top spot, with 12 votes in his favor. However, uncertainty remains, and the final decision may depend on the outcome of the draft lottery in May.
The survey also delved into other key topics related to the 2024 NBA draft:
- No. 1 Pick Prediction:
- Alex Sarr: 12 votes
- Not sure/declined to answer: 4 votes
- Ron Holland: 2 votes
- Also receiving votes: Nikola Topic, Isaiah Collier (1 vote each)
- Two-Day Draft:
- The survey explored the possibility of a two-day draft, but opinions were divided, with no clear consensus among NBA personnel.
- Success of G League Ignite:
- Opinions on the success of G League Ignite were mixed. While some view it as a positive development, others are more skeptical about its impact on player development.
- All-Stars in 2024 Draft Class:
- The survey questioned whether the 2024 draft class would produce as many All-Stars as the 2013 class. The responses varied, indicating uncertainty about the future stardom of the upcoming draft class.
- Most Intriguing Prospect Post-2024:
- The executives and scouts provided insights into the prospect they find most intriguing beyond the 2024 draft, with diverse opinions on emerging talents.
The uncertain nature of the 2024 NBA draft sets the stage for an intriguing selection process, with teams likely considering their individual needs more heavily than usual. Alex Sarr, despite facing a hip injury, stands out as a versatile and promising prospect, drawing attention for his mobile defense and perimeter-friendly skills. As teams navigate this unique draft cycle, the absence of a consensus No. 1 pick adds an element of unpredictability to the upcoming selections.
While Sarr leads the current predictions, the draft landscape may shift as the season progresses, and the draft lottery results could significantly impact the final decision. The countdown to the 2024 NBA draft continues, with basketball enthusiasts eagerly awaiting the unveiling of the next generation of talent that will shape the league’s future.
