With the NBA season winding down and the NCAA Tournament the hottest topic in sports, fans of the pro game have naturally begun to shift an eye towards the 2014 NBA Draft. A class considered one of the best in recent years is just wrapping up the college season, and with the lottery now less than two months away (it’s on Mar. 20) excitement is starting to build especially amongst fans of the teams who are long out of the playoffs.
Guys like Jabari Parker, Joel Embiid, and Andrew Wiggins have tantalized fans all season long with their promising performances on the college level, and while some claim to be “unsure” about their draft status, the appeal of all those pro dollars will undoubtedly be too much for these talented freshmen to resist.
Given that these guys have now had some postseason games to show off their talents, we decided to take a look at how the draft would shake out if the lottery went exactly according to team record (which we realize it probably won’t). With the order determined by the team’s record on March 24, we are Matching the Best Draft Fits for the NBA's Tanking Teams.
