Top 10 big-man prospects
Joel Embiid tops ranking of best power forwards, centers in 2014 draft class
Earlier this week, we broke down the top 10 point guard prospects and top 10 wing prospects in the 2014 draft. And while both of those classes are very strong, it's a mixed bag when it comes to the bigs. While the power forward class is solid (though a bit undersized), there are really just two centers on our list this year.
Here's a look at the draft from a different perspective: the Top 10 players by position based on feedback from NBA scouts and general managers. We continue by examining the top big-man prospects in the 2014 draft class.
Note: Top 100 ranks are in parentheses.
