As the college basketball season begins, many of next year’s draft prospects will display their talents for NBA scouts. The highest-rated player of the 2021 class by most experts is Oklahoma State’s Cade Cunningham. The projected #1 pick is off to a great start for the Cowboys, averaging 18.7 PPG/6.7 RPG/3.0 APG with a 3-0 record.

His comparisons to Luka Doncic have already been talked about quite a bit, which is very high praise for the young freshman. Cunningham is originally from Arlington, Texas as he’s no stranger to Dallas Mavericks basketball. He recently talked with Jeff Goodman for a short moment about the 21-year-old Slovenian star.

“I really watch a whole lot of Luka Doncic because he’s another 6’7 guard.”
