2013 NBA prospects / NBA draft

[5/21/13] The top 10 prospects at every position.

DA's Big Board

[6/13/13] Scott Howard-Cooper's Mock Draft 2.0

[6/24/13] Ten players to watch for: C.J. McCollum

[6/24/13] Mock Draft 3.0 by DraftExpress.

[6/25/13] David Aldridge's mock draft (McLemore no. 1?)

[6/27/13] Down to the final hours, and Scott Howard-Cooper is still sticking to Nerlens Noel.

[6/27/13] Here we go...  Apparently there is no consensus no. 1 with the candidates now appearing to be Noel, McLemore, Alex Len.  And even mention of Olidipo. has it Len, Oladipo, Porter, Noel, McLemore.
Draft Express has it Noel, Oladipo, Porter, Len, McLemore.
USA Today has it: Len, Noel, Porter, McLemore, Oladipo.
TheSportingNews has it: Len, Noel, Porter, Oladipo, McLemore.
CBS Sports has it: Porter/Noel, McLemore/Burke, Noel/Porter, Len/Len, Oladipo/Oladipo.
Sports Illustrated has it: Noel, McLemore, Porter, Len, Oladipo.
Bleacher Report has it: Len, Oladipo, Porter, Noel, McLemore.
SBNation has it: Noel, McLemore, Porter, Bennett, Oladipo,
HoopsWorld consensus: Noel, Oladipo, Porter, Len, McLemore.

And with the first pick, the Cleveland Cavaliers take Anthony Bennett!  (What?)
With the second pick, the Orlando Magic select Victor Oladipo
With the third pick, the Washington Wizards select Otto Porter
With the fourth pick, the Charlotte Bobcats select Cody Zeller (?)

So the consensus number 1 pick which was Noel or Len has yet to be picked.

With the fifth pick, the Phoenix Suns select Alex Len.
With the sixth pick, the New Orleans Pelicans select Nerlens Noel.
With the seventh pick, the Sacramento King select Ben McLemore.  (they're happy)

OK, that makes the consensus top five, along with Bennett and Zeller.  Who's next?  Trey Burke maybe?

Hey I'm seeing the picks several minutes faster at CBS Sports?  Is it delayed on ESPN?

According to CBS, the Pistons select Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.  (A surprise to him.)

Shane Battier is interviewing all the draft selections.  I'm surprised how tall he looks.  He's quite a bit taller than Caldwell-Pope and not much shorter than Alexn Len.  Maybe he's wearing thick shoes.

What?  Noel to be traded from New Orleans to Philadelphia for Jrue Holiday and a first round pick?  Wait, Philadelphia gets the pick??

With the ninth pick, the Minnesota Timberwolves select Trey Burke.  Despite having Rubio.  Maybe trade bait.  Maybe to Philadelphia?

With the tenth pick, the Portland Trailblazers select C.J. McCollum.

Report now that Burke traded to Utah for the 14th and 21st picks.

With the 11th pick, the Philadelphia 76ers select Michael Carter-Williams.

With the 12th pick, the Oklahoma City Thunder select Steven Adams (pick acquired in the Harden deal)

With the 13th pick, the Dallas Mavericks select Kelly Olynyk.

who is immediately headed to Boston for two second round picks (to not raise their salary cap to go after Dwight Howard).

With the 14th pick, Utah takes (for Minnesota): Shabazz Muhammad.

That's the end of the lottery picks.

With the 15th pick, the Milwaukee Bucks select Giannis Adetokunbo (project from Greece, highlights)

Now they're talking about Andrew Wiggins for next season

With the 16th pick, the Boston Celtics select Lucas Nogueira (7-footer from Brazil with large hair).

With the 17th pick, the Alanta Hawks select Dennis Schroeder (Germany)

With the 18th pick (from the Joe Johnson trade), the Atlanta Hawks Shane Larkin (from Miami)

Mavericks are saying they're getting Shane Larkin and Nogueira to Atlanta.

Cleveland with their second pick of the first round selects Sergey Karasev

Chicago selects Tony Snell, who's not here, but Shabazz Muhammad finally shows up and is interviewed by Battier.  Battier is noticeably taller.

With the 21st pick, Utah selects (unofficially for Minnesota): Gorgui Dieng

With the 22nd pick, the hometown Brooklyn Nets (with reports that Garnett and Pierce may be coming) select Mason Plumlee.

Jason Kidd now being interviewed by the panel (Jalen Rose, Bill Simmons, Jay Bilas, Rece Davis)

With the 23rd pick, the Indiana Pacers select Solomon Hill.

Now for the Knicks.  Tim Hardaway, Jr. (to cheers of the crowd including Spike Lee).

With the 25th pick, the Clippers select Reggie Bullock.

Minnesota on the clock with the 26th pick, moving the pick to Golden State, who choose ...

wait, a trade to announce.  The Boston Celtics trade the 16th pick to Dallas, Nogueira, for the rights for Kelly Olynyk, the 13th pick.

And Andre Roberson is the pick for Golden State.

Nuggets on the clock when we come back.

another trade to announce.  Minnesota trades rights to Trey Burke for (rights to) Shabazz Muhammad and Dieng.

Denver selects Rudy Gobert from France (7'2" with a 7'9" wing span the longest ever).

And now for the Spurs at #28: Livio Jean-Charles (French Guiana).  This season he averaged 3.3 points and 2.7 rebounds (so a project).  However he was the MVP at the Nike Hoop Summit going 27 and 13.

OKC now picks (in a long complicated trade just announced going to Phoenix): Archie Goodwin.

And now for David Stern's final NBA announcement of a pick

Golden State takes Nemanja Nedovic.

Applause for David Stern.  And now for the next commissioner of the NBA: Adam Silver (who immediately gets boos)

But first David Stern's very first announced draft pick Hakeem Olajuwon.

That's enough.


Garnett waives no-trade clause clearing way for Celtics to trade (in principle) Garnett, Pierce, Terry to Nets for three first round picks, Keith Bogans, Kris Humphries, Gerald Wallace, Reggie Evans.
