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.
I agree Noel seems like a perfect fit in Cleveland but Alex Len has so much upside to his game.
I think MCW will be the steal of the draft though, extremely talented passer with a nice touch around the rim and some mid-range ability
