Kentucky basketball star center Nerlens Noel arguably has the best combination of current skills and upside out of any big man in the 2013 NBA draft class.
To say he is a well-rounded big man, however, is incorrect.
Noel struggles on offense. He struggles with foul trouble. He struggles with turnovers.
All are reasonable problems for an 18-year-old basketball player. Noel is young, and he's maturing at a rapid rate.
But his position at the top is hardly secured, and although he may be a lock as a high lottery pick, the monetary difference between each pick is substantial. Last year's No. 1 pick, Anthony Davis, makes nearly $1 million more than the No. 3 pick, Bradley Beal (via HoopsHype.com).
Here are five things Noel can do to improve his draft stock to potentially be the No. 1 pick.
