So, now what?
The 2012 NBA draft has come to a close, and as exciting as it was, we need something to hold our interest. Free agency kicks off July 1st, but even that has lost a lot of luster with few big names on the open market. Alas, we can turn to the 2013 NBA draft.
While it is sure to be less deep than its predecessor this summer, next year's event will maximize intrigue because things are very much up in the air. There are highly touted freshmen who will be playing at big and small schools alike this fall. Some we caught a glimpse of in the McDonald's All-American Game earlier this year.
There are also holdovers who saw that the 2012 draft was stacked. The thinking was that holding out one more year would raise their stock in 2013. This group will be duking it out with the youngsters for the top spots in the 2013 draft.
