Ja Morant, Darius Garland and Coby White make up a clear top tier of point guards in next week's NBA draft, though one has barely played in the past year.

Morant was an NCAA Tournament star for Murray State, while White blossomed into a one-and-done talent driving North Carolina's fast-paced attack. But there's more uncertainty with Garland after he appeared in just five games at Vanderbilt due to injury.

Morant could go No. 2 overall to Memphis, while Garland and White are top-10 prospects. Beyond them, there could be a long wait to hear another point guard called Thursday night.
