NBA Draft 2013: Each Team's Top Realistic Target in This Year's Draft

How many teams will have Victor Oladipo as their top target?

When David Stern steps up to the podium and gets ready to announce the start of the 2013 NBA draft, each and every team will have a top target in mind. 

Well, a top realistic target. All 30 teams in the NBA would love to get a shot at Nerlens Noel, Ben McLemore, Victor Oladipo or Otto Porter, but not all of them have a legitimate chance of making that happen. 

Excluding the Toronto Raptors, Golden State Warriors and Miami Heat, who do not have picks in the upcoming draft, we're going to go through those realistic targets by looking at where each team is picking and what the primary needs are. 

For the sake of this article, trades are not possible. That makes everything far too complicated and unpredictable, so while you should feel free to speculate about potential swaps in the comments section, those won't appear here. 

It's also important to note that multiple teams can have the same top target. That's the nature of the game, as not everyone leaves the draft feeling completely satisfied.
