Kuminga Clark Baldwin Holmgren
I like Kuminga the best, think he'll go into the draft as the best two-way wing prospect since at least Tatum. He needs to keep improving his shot, but it's not busted and he's physical enough that he'll be able to play 4 quite a bit. Clarke is pretty old (a year and a month older than Kuminga) and I'd bet on him reclassifying eventually. Baldwin is about guaranteed to have a 10+ year NBA career as a 6'8 wing who can really shoot, but he's more of a finesse player and not too explosive so I have a hard time seeing him as a future #1 offensive option. Holmgren will get Bol Bol comparisons as an anemically skinny shot-blocking three-point shooter and at least plays with more of an edge to make up for being not quite as tall and long as Bol.
The two 2021 players who looked the best during FIBA U16s were Jabari Smith and AJ Griffin. I wrote about them both earlier in the page, but Smith in particular belongs right up there with the players you mentioned; he kind of splits the difference between Kuminga's defensive versatility and Baldwin's shooting.
