Bruce Brown Jr. opted to undergo surgery on his broken foot recently and we wish him a speedy and full recovery. Unfortunately for Bruce, this only adds to a disappointing sophomore season that has seen minimal increases in his production with drastic decreases in his shooting percentages across the board.
The middle and back end of the 1st round remains wide open with a lot of movement happening there since the 2.0 version of the 2018 big board was posted. Expect this trend to continue as players projected in the late 1st round to early/mid 2nd round struggle to separate themselves from their counterparts.
Unlike later in the draft, the top of this draft class has solidified itself. Expect little movement amongst the top 4 tiers leading up to the draft (barring poor medical reports for any of those players). Tier 3 will perhaps be the most highly debated top 4 tiers. As of this version of the 2018 big board, there is only minimal differences between the tier 3 prospects, and all 4 are (for all functional discussion purposes) considered to be tied with one another. Only very minimal differences have separated them into their current tier 3 rankings.
