No. 4: Jalen Suggs

In the vote for the no. 5 overall prospect, the Liberty Ballers community selected Jonathan Kuminga, forward who played for the Ignite of the NBA G League. Kuminga took nearly half of the vote at 46%, with Scottie Barnes behind him at 24% of the vote.


TEAM: Ignite (G League)
YEAR: 1 season in G League
HEIGHT: 6’8”
WEIGHT: 210 lbs
BIRTHDATE: Oct 6, 2002
HOMETOWN: Kinshasa, DR Congo
HIGH SCHOOL: The Patrick School


What They’re Saying

Kevin O’Connor, The Ringer

Tantalizing athlete who has raw skills that need years of seasoning, but has every tool a patient team would look for.

Richard Stayman, Mavs Draft

The story with Kuminga is centered around the question of: will he turn his raw tools into functional NBA weapons and skills? A team picking at the top of the draft needs to be extremely confident to bet on him making the jump, and if he does in fact make that jump, he could yield top 2 value.
