Kyle Filipowski is projected as a top-10 pick in the latest NBA draft big board from ESPN.

Analysts Jonathan Givony and Jeremy Woo updated their big board on Tuesday. Filipowski came in at No. 9 in the new mock and is the 5th-highest-ranked college basketball player in the mock.

Here’s some analysis from Givony on Filipowski’s draft stock:

Filipowski is in the midst of an All-American season, showing significant improvement while making a major impact on both ends of the floor. Possessing the versatility to operate as a roller, post-up threat, one-on-one creator or spot-up shooter, he has an extremely high skill level and feel for the game for a 7-footer. After some early inconsistent play, Filipowski has increased his intensity level defensively as well, posting an impressive 2.6 blocks, 1.6 steals and 9.6 rebounds in December, most notably anchoring Duke’s pick-and-roll defense in an important win over Baylor in front of a host of NBA executives at Madison Square Garden.

Filipowski could have turned pro after his freshman season, but instead decided to return to Duke to improve his draft stock and spend another year in Durham. So far, that decision seems to be paying off. He’s averaging 18 points and 8.8 rebounds per contest and has improved his true shooting percentage to 59%.

Filipowski has been Duke’s best player so far this season. The Blue Devils are 9-3 on the year and will face Syracuse on Tuesday night.
