2012 NBA Mock Draft: Reviewing Picks Before Wednesday's Lottery

The 2012 NBA Draft lottery will take place on Wednesday night at 8 p.m., which should provide some clarity to mock drafts that currently have the picks in order of team records. Of course, those mock drafts are instructive, because many of the teams will still be locked into similar selections.

Therefore, let’s take a quick look back at the last two mock drafts from our own Tom Ziller. Here’s who Ziller had each team taking.

(Note: Ziller’s May 15 mock draft predicted the lottery, while his May 7 mock draft was ordered by worst record).
