The Ringer's 2024 NBA Draft Guide

Welcome to The Ringer's 2024 NBA Draft Guide. Looking at this year's draft class is like heading to your favorite steakhouse only to find out they’re out of steak. Sure, there are still plenty of other delicious options: your trusted bigs, two-way upside wings, and guards who can cook up their own shots. But there’s no Wagyu porterhouse like Victor Wembanyama last year. There isn’t even a consensus on which entrées are the best. Teams will need to make the most of the available menu items to find talent and the best supporting pieces to add to their existing cores. Organizational objectives and philosophies will lead to more disagreement than usual on draft boards, and that’s no different with my own rankings. Lots will change between now and June 26 (and June 27, thanks to the first two-day draft).

There’s a lot to say when buying a new home or car, but only one thing to say that can help you protect them: Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there. And just like that, a State Farm agent will be there to help you choose the coverage you need. No matter where you are in life, when you need coverage options, your State Farm agent is there to help, on the phone or in-person. Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there.
