My way-too-soon 2021 NBA mock draft is approaching and I have begun filing some prospects that could enter the lottery. One name I'd keep an eye on entering this season is a prospect I had the chance to cover as he climbed the high school ranks. Keon Johnson, the 6-foot-6 wing is an absolute bucket-getter. The reason I'm so high on him is his ability to run the floor and his skill and IQ on both ends. He's a complete and polished prospect that has the chance to develop into a stud under Rick Barnes. Offensively is where I think Johnson will excel the most, he's got the confidence and doesn't shy away from any defender. I think entering the tough SEC, he will showcase his talents and fit in instantly.

+ Elite IQ and vision
+ Bucket-getter
