    1. Cleveland - Nerlens Noel...don't think they can pass him up, and can't see them drafting a SG (unless they trade Waiters?).
    2. Orlando - Trey Burke....they want a PG. Burke looks good. Could be a starting PG for 10-15 years. In this weak draft that'd be hard to pass up. Not sure McLemore is a special enough talent to just take a shooter with the #2 pick.
    3. Washington - Anthony Bennett...Beal makes taking a SG unnecessary. Bennett also needs a situation with vets ahead of him like Nene and Okafor, so that he's held accountable. Wiz need a young big to look add to the young core of Wall+Beal. Bennett has big time talent.
    4. Charlotte - I'm torn here. I'm going to say McLemore...They took the intangibles guy already with MKG. They need offense.
    5. Phoenix - Oladipo...or McLemore of Charlotte passes on him. PHX needs help everywhere, and they need to start re-stocking solid personalities as well.
    6. New Orleans - Otto Porter...seems like a nice fit here. Could be a very nice fit next to Davis as a long forward duo.
    7. Sacramento - Shabazz Muhammed...Seems like the right pick for the Kings. They could probably use a wing, since I don't think any bigs in this area are great fits with Cousins. Also with some questions about his character recently, seems like the right player in terms of the Kings draft history.
    8. Detroit - With their bigs stocked, hard to see who they pick here. I would say Len, but they can't afford to take another big who could struggle to guard PFs in the NBA. That's also why I don't see the Kings picking him with Cousins there. I honestly think the Pistons trade, or even just move down. If they don't, I think they take a PG like Carter-Williams, or McCollum, maybe not being sold on Knight's future at PG.
    9. Minnesota - McCollum...Given the size of Rubio and Shved, McCollum is actually a nice fit for a team starved for a perimeter scorer. I think McCollum is a pretty safe pick, but he might be best suited to a J. Crawford/L. Williams type 6th man role. That could work just fine in Minnesota though.
    10. Portland - Alex Len...If they're lucky, Len drops to them. Len has pretty nice potential. And his game should fit in very nicely next to Aldridge.

    Man, this is hard to figure...I can also see Len going to the Pelicans, and then Sacto would take Porter, and Detroit would actually probably take Muhammed. Minny would still target McCollum. Then Portland would probably take Zeller, or maybe even Olynyk, who might actually be a better fit next to Aldridge, at least offensively.

    I'm talking about a team that will actually be in the lottery. Unless they completely blow up the Raps, they are not missing the playoffs next season.

    Cavs - Porter - Could Noel, a slim, defensive specialist play along side Tristan? Someone has to be able to score consistently. Porter allows them to start Sideshow Bob, Tristan, Waiters, Porter, and Irving. Not a glamorous pick, but may be the best fit, and Porter is a great glue guy.

    Orlando - Mclemore replaces what they lost when they traded JJ. I like the young pieces these guys have.

    Washington - Noel slips to here, can learn behind 2 vets, and will get play time because both get injured quite a bit.

    Charlotte - Bennett makes sense, but I say Oladipo. That creates a solid, young back court.

    Phoenix - I doubt Phoenix keeps this pick-- they need too many holes filled. If they keep it anything from a 2-4 would make the most sense. I'll say Saric. He can play the 3 and 4. If he has the speed to defend the 3 he solves a lot of issues for them.

    New Orleans - Doc Rivers' kid is miscast as a sg in NO. He's more of a shoot-first point guard. Until they make that adjustment, or he changes his game NO will need a future wing. Completely off the board, Glen Rice Jr-- he has experience in the pro game, and proven NBA range. They could also go big here.

    Sacramento - These guys take Bennett, giving them insurance if they trade the guy who saved and destroyed my fantasy league team, and laugh there way home. Steal.

    Detroit - Of Three Lakes select point guard Trey Burke, because their current pg on a first contract is more of a shooting guard, and their best point guard from Spain will be playing for a better team than De Trois.

    Minnesota - Olynyk is Kevin Love without the rebounding. This gives them a chance to fill holes by moving Williams, AK, or both.

    Portland - They go big. Zeller, Len, or Gobert. Zeller's more of a 4 (L.A.'s spot) so my guess is Len. Wouldn't be surprised if it's the French kid, but there's more North American video to study of Len. People compare him favorably to JV. I don't think he's as good, but that should be enough for him to be picked this late in the lottery.

    Philly - Gobert (Need an insurance big for Bynum)
    OKC - MCW (Any of McCollum, Schroeder or MCW here. Just chose the one with the best fit for the team)
    Dallas - Dennis Schroeder ( a German PG for a German superstar PF)
