Game Plan for NBA Teams with the Most Draft Picks
David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

Heading into the 2013 NBA draft, six teams have multiple first-round picks to go with one or more picks in Round 2 (to see where these picks came from, check here).

Each team has a draft board with ranked prospects, but those with multiple picks have some extra work to do. They have to lay out possible scenarios for each draft slot, as one pick will affect the next.

For example, if a team must settle on Player B at No. 14 overall after Player A was taken No. 13, how does that affect who they target with their next pick at No. 21? If Utah can get a point guard with its first pick, the plans might change for its next pick.

They also must address team needs and how they value them. Does a team that needs a shooting guard pass on a better prospect to fill at hole? Sometimes yes, sometimes no.

For these six teams, I've laid out plans A, B and C for each first-round pick and provided some potential targets for Round 2.

Since the lottery hasn't played out yet, all draft slots are projections.
