The 2023 NBA Draft is a month away, meaning teams are doing their due diligence on the top prospects available to make the leap to the next level. We’re doing the same here at Hoops Habit.
While this draft class is dominated by one superstar prospect, there are plenty of gems to be mined behind Victor Wembanyama. NBA teams are always in need of point guards to command the floor and there are a handful of good to great ones available this year.
For this list, we’re going to try and stick to true point guards as much as possible, evaluating skills such as distributing, defense, and scoring. The game f basketball is less reliant on positions than ever before, but a consistent floor general remains vital – not to mention, hard to come by.

The NBA Draft Combine may have had an impact on the incoming class, both in terms of risers and fallers, though the impact is not nearly as strong as the combine the NFL hosts every year. There are still decisions to be made for college students who have maintained their eligibility, too.
