Is Mikal Bridges really a top-10 talent?

Mikal Bridges has long been profiled as a potential target for the Knicks in relation to their drafting position. Jackson Hoy (The Stepien) does a wonderful job looking at prospect comparables in answering the question of whether Bridges is truly a top-ten talent.

This is not to say that Bridges is a useless NBA player or that he is guaranteed to fail. He is still one of the best bets to shoot in this class, and his length, instincts, and solid quickness on defense give him a baseline to contribute on that end both as an individual and team defender. Still, his limitations on both ends at an advanced age compared to his peers make it tough to see what clearly differentiates him from the mass of wings in the middle of the first round.
