The NBA Draft was a wild ride.
Some teams had great moves, while some teams made questionable ones.
Players were waiting to fulfill their lifelong dreams of making it to the NBA.
At the end of the day, they just want to get drafted.
However, some players fell in the draft and we are curious as to why.
There are times where we are waiting for a good prospect to be selected, but we wait another several picks before it happens.
This draft had a couple of those incidents.
Who are the two players that fell a little too far in the draft this year?
2. Alperen Sengun (Houston Rockets, No. 16 overall)
One of the players that flew under the radar for a long time was Alperen Sengun.
Sengun is from Turkey and was recently playing in the Turkish Basketball League.
Not only was he very good, but he was in fact the MVP of the league.
Sengun dominated in Turkey.
Also, he just turned 19 years old a week ago.
He averaged 19.2 points per game with 9.4 rebounds, 2.5 assists, and 1.7 blocks.
The young prospect even dominated in their postseason.
Sengun fell all the way to the No. 16 overall pick.

The two problems for him entering the draft were that he was playing in the Turkish league and that he is a center.
A lot of centers have been proven that they can easily be played off of the court during the postseason.
However, Sengun has so much talent and has the soft touch to develop a good three-point shot.
There were a few players that went ahead of him, which might haunt teams in the future.
Do not be shocked to see Sengun playing a lot of good minutes this upcoming season.
1. James Bouknight (No. 11 overall, Charlotte Hornets)
One of the best scorers in this draft was undoubtedly James Bouknight out of Connecticut.
The man can put the ball in the basket at will.

He averaged 18.7 points per game in his sophomore season at UConn.
The rumor was that he was climbing up draft boards throughout the process.
However, he fell to No. 11, after speculation of him being a top-seven pick.
His shot can be streaky at times, as he shot 29 percent from three this past season.
Furthermore, he has a problem with his turnovers and has a lack of facilitating.
Bouknight is still a great scorer though.
He is very athletic and the Charlotte Hornets just need to fix his shot a little bit to maximize his potential.
That can be a bold move for the Oklahoma City Thunder (selected Giddy sixth overall) and the Memphis Grizzlies (took Williams with the No. 10 pick).
Bouknight is in a great situation with the Hornets, as he is now with the reigning Rookie of the Year, LaMelo Ball.
There is a chance that Bouknight could be the steal of the 2021 NBA Draft and make teams regret their decisions.NEXT: Report: Celtics Interested In Bringing Back Former Star
