With a number of big names having declared, let's get the ball rolling early. This is probably my favourite time of the year with the playoffs and all the draftees starting to gather some steam for next year.

Who's on your radar?

Here's how I think the top 10 will play out if there are no jumps in position:

1. Wiggins, Bucks (playing it safe after missing CP3 last time they had #1 pick)
2. Parker, Sixers (a quality wing player to run between Noel & MCW, SHOULD be a good fit)
3. Embiid, Magic (what should be an easy choice to fill a big need)
4. Randle, Jazz (because frankly Kanter is a dud and they need better big men)
5. Smart or Exum, Celtics (They'll be hoping Randle falls, however a PG to learn from Rondo - until possible Rockets trade!?)
6. Smart or Exum, Lakers (best available and very solid PG, who ever Celtics don't grab)
7. Vonleh, Kings (needing to add depth at PF)
8. Harris, Pistons (because they need someone not named Josh Smith to shoot from 3)
9. Anderson, Cavs (should Deng leave in FA here's their replacement long term)
10. Gordon, Sixers (really this could be Young but I think they're better off drafting another big man than a shooter)

The magic also own the knicks pick 12 (who should take McDermott). Both the magic and the sixers rebuild of young talent should be near complete and should be looking for FA assets to insert for veteran leadership.

SIXERS - future starting line up
1. MCW
2. Can the woo Lance Stephenson??
3. Parker
4. Gordon
5. Noel

MAGIC - future starting line up
1. Oladipo
2. Afflalo
3. McDermott
4. Harris
5. Embiid

Favourite time of the year for non playoff teams :D

Wiggins easily my favourite prospect!

Wonder who the cavs may go for but we'd been linked with Gary Harris from Michigan :crazy:

Potentially the cavs could get the number 1, meaning they'd have three number ones on the team. I wonder if that has ever happened before.

I agree I think wiggins goes #1 no matter, would love to see him in Orlando tho lol! There's no way Orlando select embiid, have u forgotten about Vucevic?? Will be one of the best big men in the game in the next few years... And no way Boston take a pg with rondo on the team...

You know what, I actually DID forget about Vucevic... what the!? haha

In that case Randle 3rd & Embiid 4th - both filling a need!

I don't think in a draft like this, a top 5 pick can afford to draft a player higher than where they should be. I do think they'll take another PG, given no one bigger bodied is still on the board.
