Brandon Miller is emerging as the clear favorite to be picked No. 2 overall in the 2023 NBA Draft.

Miller, who was named SEC Player of the Year after his standout freshman season, is a top candidate to go No. 2 overall to the Charlotte Hornets. According to The Ringer’s Kevin O’Connor, “all indications” say that will be the case.

O’Connor released his updated mock on Tuesday and projects Miller to be picked by the Hornets. Here’s his analysis:

All indications suggest the Hornets are leaning toward Miller with this choice as a partner for LaMelo Ball. I’d go in that direction too over Scoot Henderson because Miller brings playmaking skill in his own right, on top of his go-to scoring prowess.

Miller is competing for the No. 2 spot with G-League Ignite guard Scoot Henderson. Victor Wembanyama is widely expected to be picked No. 1 overall by the San Antonio Spurs.

If Charlotte does pick Miller, he would be joining a core of young players that is headlined by star point guard LaMelo Ball.

Miller averaged 18.8 points and 8.2 rebounds per game as a freshman with the Crimson Tide. He also made 38.4% of his 3-point attempts.

If Miller does go No. 2 overall, he would be the first Alabama player to go that high in the draft since Antonio McDyess in 1995.

The 2023 NBA Draft will be held on June 22.
