2023 NBA Mock Draft

April 18, 2021 0 By jasonbaud

This far out is a bit more speculative but we are projecting most of the 2022 draft to stay in and combining that with the top prospects in the 2023 draft. This 2023 NBA Mock Draft is an estimate of the best 25 NBA prospects that will be available. We are higher than most on Jeron Artest. The son’s of NBA legend Ron Artest. We have a mid first round grade and project him as a NBA starter.

Here is the first edition of Draft HD’s 2023 NBA Mock Draft

2023 NBA Mock Draft
1.     Emoni Bates- SF – HT: 6-8 1/2 – WT: 175 – WING: 6-9 – FROM: Yipsilanti, MI – HS so.
Bates plays like a laboratory experiment combined Lebron James with Kevin Durant. It’s hard to name a weakness, three level scorer with elite physical tools could easily be a NBA superstar.  
2              Jarace Walker
SG – HT: 6-6 – WT: 210 – WING: NA – FROM: New Freedom, PA (IMG) – HSso.              
3              Eric Dailey Jr.
SF – HT: 6-6 – WT: 214 – WING: NA – FROM: Tampa, FL (IMG)- HSso. –              
4              Dior Johnson
PG – HT: 6-1 – WT: NA – WING: NA – FROM: Saugerties, NY (Findley Prep) – HSso.       –              
5.             Caleb Houstan
SF – HT: 6-8 – WT: 170 – WING: NA – FROM: Ontario, Canada (Montverde) – HSso.          Elite quickness and handle has all the raw ability of a future superstar. 
6              Victor Wembanyama
C – HT: 7-2 – WT: NA – WING: NA – FROM: France – Int.04

7-2 from France is one of the most intriguing prospect on the NBA, thanks to his sheer size and length.
At 7-2 with a ridiculous 7-8 wingspan, he currently eligible for the 2023 NBA draft.
Victor is talented and stands out on both ends of the floor on the defensive end he really changes the game with his length in the lane , on offensive Victor has the making of a versatile package including a picture perfect jumper Victor is obviously very skinny and lacking strength, he will always have a skinny frame but will surely out as he grows up, he just needs to keep refining his skill, decision making and work on his strength frame.

25           Marcus Bagley

26. Ryan Mutombo
is a quicky developing center prospect who do some of the same things as his old man, including defending the rim and blocking a lot of shots.
He has got a big 6-11 frame with plenty of room for more growth.

28 Chris Livingston SF – Akron, OH – HT: 6-4 1/2 – WT: 190 – WING: 6-11 – HSjr – A high level athlete with great quickness, explosive above the rim ability and a competitive demeanor.

30 A.J. Casey PF – Chicago, IL – HT: 6-8 – WT: 200 – WING: NA – HSjr – Casey is a big time athlete with all the tools and developing skill-set of a future first round pick.

Other prospects to watch:

Mark Mitchell from Shawnee is a future pro and looks the points of a future first round NBA draft pick.
Mark fits the mold of mordern day power forward with his ability to defend multiple position on defense and make plays with the ball in his hands on offense.
At this point his outside shooting isn’t a strength but does show plenty of promise and isn’t afraid to step out to 3pt land


Scoot Henderson from Mavietfa is rock solid ground with broad shoulders, a strong frame and good above the rim ability. He is got all the size you look for in a NBA level point guard.
Scoots opportunities over the next few days years will be refine his decision making and develop his ability to run the offense, while staying aggressive with his scoring instincts.


Vincent Iwuchukwu from San Antonio is still growing into his frame and develop his coordination but he’s got great size and a chance to be a special prospect, his basketball skills are still young and at this point it’s a lot of projection about where is game will be in 3 or 4 years.



Brice Griggs from Fort Bend is a shifty lead guard who plays with a lot of rythm, he has advance ball handling skills and keeps the defender off balance and can blow by his men with the dribble scores on a variety of mid range pull-ups and running layups, but doesn’t have the most pure outside shot and doesn’t put good spin on the ball, but is young and has time to develop
