Top prospects in East Region

Once again, this year's East bracket is loaded with good teams, but there is a dearth of NBA prospects in the region. By my count, we have no lottery picks and just five potential first-rounders in the region. NBA scouts: Run away.

Insider's NBA draft team has talked to multiple NBA scouts and GMs over the course of the season. Based on their feedback, here's a look at the top NBA prospects for each of the teams in the East Region, listed by potential lottery picks, first-rounders, second-rounders and "wait until next year" players. (Teams listed by seed.)

On Monday, we took a look at the prospects in the Midwest and on Tuesday we looked at the West.


1. Villanova Wildcats

Potential second-rounders: Daniel Ochefu, C, Jr.; Darrun Hilliard II, SG, Sr.

Villanova, despite its lofty record, doesn't rely on a bevy of NBA talent like Kentucky or Duke. It's conceivable that were the draft held today, the Wildcats wouldn't have anyone selected. Still, both Ochefu and Hilliard are prospects worth watching.
