With only two weeks until the NBA draft, Sports Illustrated's Andrew Sharp talks to Jeremy Woo to get a feel for the first round. Since this group is considered a shallow pool to pick from, they stick to the names that are expected to ring loudest on draft night. 

Sharp and Woo focus on the rise of Washington big man MarqueseChriss, the options for the Suns, Celtics, and Wolves, and the age-old debate of Ben Simmons vs. Brandon Ingram. 

While they engage in heavy lottery talk during the podcast, Sharp and Woo also zero in on players outside the top 14. Kentucky products Tyler Ulis and Skal Labissiere are covered, as well as Baylor's Taurean Prince, Washington's Dejounte Murray and Vanderbilt's Wade Baldwin.
