I also guess you people want something to discuss other than the Heat and Lebron which there are about 45 threads about.
So anyway Alex Len potentially at one? How far will Noel fall? As much as people hate on Cody Zeller I could see a contender making a move for him maybe a team like the Pacers trading up using George Hill to grab Zeller and then flipping Danny Granger for an Eric Bledsoe.
Obviously a TON of teams are going to looking for large powerful rim protectors.
Michael Carter-Williams is another interesting prospect, 6-6 PG with a good first step and nice touch around the basket.
I'd still be very surprised if Noel doesn't go No. 1. I'd be absolutely shocked if Len was the pick. That has smokescreen written all over it.
I'm going to guess the Top 5 will look like this...
1. Cleveland - Nerlens Noel
2. Orlando - Ben McLemore or Trey Burke
3. Washington - Otto Porter Jr.
4. Charlotte - Alex Len
5. Phoenix - Ben McLemore or Victor Oladipo
The guy I could see falling further than people think is Ben McLemore if Orlando opts for Burke or someone else at #2. Neither Washington or Charlotte are taking him and I think Phoenix leans toward Oladipo.
Word is McLemore has not had very good workouts and his advanced metrics are very pedestrian.
