2024 NBA Mock Draft: Projections Two Weeks Out

Published

on

The 2024 NBA Draft is just over two weeks away, as the NBA Finals are the final major event between now and the true offseason. Teams continue to bring in prospects as they hope to firm up their boards ahead of the draft.

Without a clear top pick, and even more uncertainty in the selections to follow, anything could happen on June 26. There may not be a superstar in this class, but there should be plenty of quality role players.

Let’s take a look at fit and projections for this upcoming event in this iteration of Draft Digest’s 2024 NBA Mock Draft.
