3 biggest steals of the 2021 NBA Draft



Article Summary:

The 2021 NBA Draft is already in the rearview mirror, but after a crazy draft day filled with trades, unexpected picks and quite a few steals, we’d be remiss if we failed to take a quick look back at Thursday’s selections and identify a few of them that really stood out as high-value picks.

Every year, talented prospects slide further down the pecking order than they should, and every year, smart teams jump on those players who will later reveal themselves as NBA Draft steals.

3. Jalen Suggs

Jalen Suggs was probably never going to be selected before the consensus top-three picks of Cade Cunningham, Jalen Green and Evan Mobley, but it was a conversation, and when the Toronto Raptors shocked the world with Scottie Barnes at pick No. 4, Suggs immediately became a steal for whatever team jumped on him. Years later, teams will look back on the 2021 NBA Draft and wonder how Suggs fell to even No. 5.

Next: No. 2
