The NBA Draft is still a few months away, but NBA scouts will certainly be watching this weekend’s Sweet 16 with a discerning eye while looking for the next big thing in the NBA.

While this draft class isn’t the deepest in recent memory, there are certainly a few guys that could develop into outstanding pro prospects depending on where they end up. However, this weekend will be key to judging how these prospects will be graded going forward.

Kemba Walker has been the talk of college hoops over the past few weeks for his run through the Big East tournament and his ability to lead a young UConn team. How has this stretch helped his draft stock?

Jimmer Fredette is another guy that has leaped to the forefront of college basketball talk. Does he have what it takes to be a top-10 pick, or did his last game in a BYU uniform hurt his draft stock?

Could Derrick Williams be the top overall pick with a strong performance against Duke?

Speaking of Duke, is Kyrie Irving the best pro prospect they have?

Stay tuned here for updates on each NBA prospect playing in the Sweet 16 and how their performances will affect their draft placement.
