Eye on Basketball Podcast: A 2014 NBA Draft primer

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

Matt Moore joins me for a huge pod in which we give our thoughts on what is likely to happen in the NBA Draft and what we think should happen Thursday night. It all starts off with what the Cleveland Cavaliers will do with the top pick. Will they take Andrew Wiggins or Jabari Parker? Could they surprise us with Dante Exum? What then happens with Joel Embiid and which teams should and shouldn't be willing to take a risk on the injured center? Is there a way to screw up the top 5 picks in this draft?

What will teams do with their extra picks? Will we see the Sacramento Kings and the Denver Nuggets try to trade out of the lottery? Which teams should aggressively try to move up? Will we see a team make a push for Kevin Love on draft night? How deep does this draft go? Who are the potential role playing stars? Who are the valuable 3-and-D guys? Will we see certain guys overvalued from big schools?

We discuss all of this, plus the sad news about Isaiah Austin, how many trades we might see on draft night, and much more.
