39. Alston Mason - Missouri State to Arizona State

2023-24 season stats: 17.5 ppg and 3.6 apg

The 6’2 guard had his breakout season in the MVC, leading the Bears in scoring and shooting 35% from deep. Mason had 12 games of 20 points, including a 36-point effort against Drake in overtime. He joins a completely revamped backcourt for the Sun Devils and looks to take over Frankie Collins’ spot as the lead guard. 

38. Jaeden Zackery - Boston College to Clemson 

2023-24 season stats: 11.3 ppg and 4.2 apg

The 6’2 guard started 100 games in the last three years at BC, shooting 41% from three-point range and leading the team in passing. His scoring production was inconsistent overall but Zackery did have four games of at least 20 points, including 22 against Clemson in the ACC Tournament. He’s set to be a lead guard for Clemson, who lost both Joe Girard and Chase Hunter in the backcourt after their Elite 8 run.

37. J’vonne Hadley - Colorado to Louisville

2023-24 season stats: 11.6 ppg and 6.0 rpg

The 6’6 guard started 55 games in two seasons at Colorado and was highly efficient on offense, shooting 54% from the field this past year and 42% from deep. Hadley, despite being the 5th option at times, had a couple of big outings, including 24 points at Washington. He joins a newly built Louisville roster that’s filled with mid-major stars. Among them, Hadley, who is a proven power conference scorer, should have an easier time transitioning.
