Eye on Basketball Podcast: 2013 Lottery Mock Draft

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

I'm joined by Matt Moore the day before the 2013 NBA Draft to do a little drafting of our own. We did a mock draft of the first 14 picks to measure how we feel about the certain team and player situations. Is Nerlens Noel really the center the Cleveland Cavaliers should take with the top pick? Which shooting guard should the Orlando Magic target with No. 2? Are Otto Porter and Alex Len what they're cracked up to be as prospects? And which team is going to be lucky enough to have C.J. McCollum fall into its lap?

During the mock draft, we tackle plenty of issues. Should the Charlotte Bobcats really look into moving Michael Kidd-Gilchrist? Is DeMarcus Cousins more of a power forward or a center for the Sacramento Kings? Should the Minnesota Timberwolves draft for best player available or the best fit for their roster? And what about the attempt the Cavaliers made to trade Tristan Thompson, Dion Waiters and the first pick for Kevin Love?

We discuss all of this plus which role players we like throughout the rest of the draft.
