1

Kyle Anderson, Jordan Adams and Jarnell Stokes are legitimate NBA players and they probably won't get picked until the end of the first round, if not later. Here's why teams should select them sooner.

Can Doug McDermott cut it in the NBA?

The former Creighton forward is the best shooter in the draft, but he comes with some caveats. Are those enough to prevent him from being a useful pro?

New NBA Mock: Where Emiid could fall, new #1

It's draft week, so let's look at how the top ten could, and in some cases, should look like.

Elfrid Payton, the draft's biggest sleeper

Gary Harris, the modern wing prototype

The former Michigan State shooting guard can shoot threes and play defense, so he's exactly the kind of player NBA teams crave. But just how high is his ceiling?

Marcus Smart is the ultimate hot and cold player

Marcus Smart can sometimes do it all. He also sometimes can't do anything. Can the Oklahoma State star become more consistent on the next level?

Noah Vonleh, built from an impressive slab of clay

The former Indiana Hoosier has all the tools to be a very good NBA power forward, but it's going to take patience and a good deal of coaching to get him there.

Aaron Gordon, the NBA Draft's 5-tool prospect

The former Arizona forward can do a little bit of everything, but has one potentially fatal flaw. Is that package enough to be a high lottery pick?

Randle is ready to start right away

The former Kentucky forward is a rare combination of power and finesse, and while he has weaknesses, those strengths will allow him to get immediate playing time.

Embiid is the No. 1 pick ... if healthy

The Kansas product has a rare combination of size, grace and athleticism. Lingering back trouble is the only reason he's currently No. 3 on our big board.

Jabari Parker was born to get buckets

Duke's freshman stud is a high-volume scorer with an NBA-ready body. That's why he's our No. 2 prospect, despite some concerns about his defense and shot selection.

Wiggins' unlimited upside makes him No. 1

Kansas' freshman phenom was the No. 1 college prospect a year ago, and he's our No. 1 prospect in the 2014 NBA Draft despite a few warts that may limit him early in his career.
