With the NCAA's best prepping for the NBA draft, who are the best players on the board?
Though NBA play carries on into the highly tense postseason, nearly half of the league's teams are already looking towards the coming summer—and thus, towards the future.
This draft class is an intriguing one, which is also to say it's an ambiguous one. There are no sure things in this group of players, but there are a ton of players who have a ceiling they may or may not reach or skills that may or may not translate to the next level.
Draft picks represent leaps of faith by definition; all an organization can do is gamble on the guys that are most likely to pay off.
That's partly a matter of the right players going to the right teams. Therein lies the difficulty of drafting—who's best, who a team wants and who's best for a team are all different things.
