A number of NBA teams will be looking for their draft picks to make big impacts on the squad for the coming season. Some 2012 playoff teams, like the Orlando Magic, hope that their picks will help them retool quickly with their uncertain roster outlooks.

Other teams, like the Charlotte Bobcats, need theirs to come through to aid the rebuilding process.
