With the 2012 NBA draft just ending yesterday and the free agency period looming, some might think it's too early start talking next year's draft.
Well, after remembering what a spectacle the draft was last night, I'm not one of those people. Within minutes of the Lakers taking the NBA's version of Mr. Irrelevant, I was scouring the Internet looking for scouting reports on the top players of the 2013 class.
And with the undeniable fact that every single person in the world loves mock drafts, I figured why not do some super early speculation for the 2013 NBA draft?
Follow along to see who your team picked.
(Note: Just for these purposes, we're simply ordering the teams by their lottery chances this season. Trades involving future draft compensation won't be counted because we aren't positive how next season will play out. And the players involved are mainly married to their draft position over team, though I'll make a concerted effort to accommodate both.)
