We're approaching that point in the season where the eventual No. 1 pick usually emerges from the pack.
Our guy has been dominant as of late and appears to be the most likely of the 2013 NBA draft options to offer a game-changing presence at the next level.
We also saw a rising star in this week's Indiana-Michigan showdown, while a new name has appeared towards the back of our first round.
After evaluating recent performances, there's been some shuffling amongst the prospects in the top half of the lottery.
Some notes for the first round:
Oklahoma City gets Toronto's first-round pick, which the Raptors acquired in the James Harden deal from Houston.
If the Lakers miss the playoffs, their pick goes to Phoenix, which is something we anticipate.
Portland gives up a top-12 protected pick to Charlotte from the Gerald Wallace-Joel Przybilla trade in 2011.
The Atlanta Hawks receive Houston's top-14 protected pick in the Joe Johnson deal they made with the Nets.
Team needs were taken into account, although rosters are likely to change once June rolls around.
