The 2012 NBA Draft class comes into their first season with some of the highest expectations in years. Can the 2013 class possibly live up to similar hype?
The incoming NCAA freshmen class adds to an already talented group of potential draftees. How will it all shake up come next June? Sleepers will rise, stars will falter, and there is probably a player we don't even consider a 1st round selection who will make it into the lottery (see Damian Lillard from the 2012 Draft).
For now, let's take a look at a very early first round mock draft for 2013.
Note: For simplicity's sake, I will be using the final 2011-2012 standings to judge the selection order. However, I have included all of the outstanding trades that might shift the 2013 order around.
