Lonzo Ball wins the #6 spot on our Big Board... and by a wide margin. Previously the voting for 3rd, 4th and 5th spots had all been very close but today Ball got almost twice as many votes as runner-up Jayson Tatum. No one else was even in the running as the two of them combined got close to 90% of the votes cast.

26. Bam Adebayo

27. Jordan Bell

28. Tony Bradley

29. Ivan Rabb

30. Derrick White

31. ???

In a very close vote, Colorado Senior Derrick White was the fans' choice for #30. White is a 6'4" combo guard that averaged 18.3 points, 4.3 assists and 4.1 rebounds per game last season and was one of only 14 players in the NCAA to average 18 pts, 4 rebs and 4 assists per game with Markelle Fultz, Frank Mason and Dennis Smith being the only other players in powerhouse conferences to accomplish the same.

Scoring 1.078 points per possession, White was the seventh most efficient scorer last season according to Synergy Sports Technology while also connecting on 40.1% of his threes. White scores in a variety of ways and is not just a jump shooter. He could very well be a strong pickup for the Suns if he still available early in the second round.

And now on to choosing #30.
