Is Trae Young worth a top-10 pick?

Oklahoma Sooners' Trae Young has a lot of hype around him. He lit college basketball up with his deft shooting touch, reminding experts of NBA superstar Stephen Curry. Teams would be foolish not to take him in the top 10 of the NBA draft. Still, others point out his second half of the season was subpar. Teams in need of immediate help like those in the top 10 would be taking a hefty risk picking him. What do you think? 🏀

Trae Young is the NBA's next superstar. Forget about his size or his late-season struggles. This kid proved he could play with his incredible range, great handles and pinpoint passing. Six teams had the opportunity to take Stephen Curry in 2009 but were scared because they weren't sure his game would translate to the NBA. Young is arguably just as talented and teams will regret not taking him. He will be off the board by the 11th pick.

Young may have had a hot start to the season, but his second half left a lot to be desired. He may be talented, but he's still a freshman. If he was unable to withstand the college basketball season, what makes people think he can deal with a much more brutal year in the NBA? He may be a great player down the line, but he definitely isn't worth the risk for teams who need immediate help. Young isn't worth a top-10 selection.
