We attended the first three of four evaluation days at the 2014 LeBron James Skills Academy in Las Vegas and broke down our notes to rank the top forty players in attendance. 

The following rankings are based on evaluations from all the workout sessions and camp games of the first three days of the 2014 LeBron James Skills Academy. We will not evaluate the bracket games on Saturday, July 12. The rankings are based on performance at the camp only, not on performance combined with previous honors, national or state ranking. Some players did not play in every session of the camp and in some instances, but not all, that changed that particular player’s ranking. This camp was loaded with quality front court players but the point guard position lacked elite, college-ready talent. Of the nation’s consensus Top 50 national prospects, this camp was missing approximately 15-20 of those players. There were four camp games played at one time and the rankings likely were influenced on which game one focused on among the four courts at the Cashman Center. We did, however, evaluate every camp team at least twice.

Editor’s Note: Guards Malik Newman and Isaiah Briscoe did play on the camp’s first day, but suffered injuries and did not complete the second day or play thereafter. Therefore they are not ranked here.
