NBA Commissioner Adam Silver speaks during the first round of the 2017 NBA Draft at Barclays Center on June 22, 2017 in New York City. Jackson is one of the more fascinating prospects in this draft class. These kids will be taken as much for what they can be as for what they are now.
On Monday, Pro Basketball Talk released the second in our NBA Draft Prospect Profile series, an in-depth breakdown of Michigan State's Jaren Jackson Jr. Mock drafts have him as a potential top-three or top-five selection. Based on what Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN is reporting, it appears as though Jackson has blown the Suns' minds away with his talent showcase. Wojnarowski adds that there are a number of teams outside of the Top four that are looking to move up to acquire JJJ, and it sounds like he's firmly in play anywhere from No. 1 to No. 4.
Jackson Jr., who left after his freshman year with the Spartans, averaged 10.9 points and 5.8 rebounds per game, and shot.396 from beyond the arc. Teams may like the versatility the 6-foot-11 forward offers.
