Jay Bilas' Best Available: Top 40 NBA draft prospects

Every year since 2003, I have put together a "Best Available" list for the NBA draft. Instead of doing a mock draft and trying to anticipate team needs and what each team will do at each draft spot, I put together a list of players and rank them as to which are the most valuable prospects.

I don't have a team, therefore, I don't have a "Big Board" or a board of any kind. I mean, really, where would I put it? Instead of a board, I simply have a yellow legal pad, with notes, scribbles and the occasional doodle drawing, usually from a boring conference call.

While there can be a shift of a player or two prior to the NBA draft, it is unlikely that there will be any changes in my "Best Available" list leading up to the NBA draft on June 25 (7 p.m. ET, ESPN). And if you want to see the 10 things I like about the top prospects, read it here.

As always, you're welcome.
