Now that we are a few months into the regular season, several teams have already accepted their fate as a pretty bad NBA team overall. Fans are starting to break down the best prospects in the upcoming 2015 NBA Draft. Right now, it looks to be pretty big man heavy in general. Things can change in the next few months, but here are the five best overall prospects right now.
When it comes to refined players ready to contribute right away, Okafor is a pretty safe bet. He might not be the most physically gifted center in the draft, but he should have a very long and productive career. Right now, people in fantasy basketball see him as the top overall guy.
Casual basketball fans know very little about Mudiay right now, basically because he decided to turn pro and play in China instead of the college route. He has also been limited with some injury issues this season, but he is still considered to be the best playmaker in the draft. Compared favorably to John Wall, he could be one of the most athletic point guards in the NBA from day one.
Kentucky is the most talented team in the college game right now, and the most promising pro is center Towns. He is a different type of center compared to Okafor, but that doesn't mean they both can't have success.
Stuck on a somewhat mediocre Texas team, Turner is overshadowed by the centers on the two top teams in the country. However, he might be able to really shine at the pro level. He is already a chiseled 6'11" and 240 pounds, and he could really take off with better teammates around him.
When you aren't even the best center on your college team, rarely are you considered to be a top five pick. That is just how stacked Kentucky is. Cauley-Stein has recovered nicely from his leg injury last year, and he is a legit 7-footer many lottery teams will be checking out closely.
