2013 NBA Draft Order: Complete Listings for Each Round

With the NBA Draft just hours away, each team is making its last adjustments to respective draft boards and double-checking scouting reports.

The storylines are plentiful with New Orleans picking in the Top 10 as they try and find a compliment to Anthony Davis. Cleveland is trying to do the same with its No. 1 overall pick to help Kyrie Irving.

There might not be Kevin Durant-esque talent in this year's draft pool but as last season's playoffs proved, more and more teams are putting the pieces together. Some teams do need a young star player. Just as many franchises are looking for some talented role players to pair with those already on the roster.

Let's take a look at where each team is drafting in both rounds of the draft and some big storylines heading into tonight.

Michael Carter-Williams

Michael Carter-Williams is a player that has some obvious talent but has left some experts skeptical. CBS Sports' Doug Gottlieb for example, believes the Syracuse product to be overvalued. Gottlieb cites the point guard's poor shooting and decision-making as reasons behind his belief.

Carter-Williams averaged just under 12 points per game for the Orange last year, with 111 steals and 195 rebounds also to his credit.

ESPN's Chad Ford believes he will be taken by Portland with the No. 10 overall pick despite the team selecting a point guard last year. Carter-Williams' draft stock is helped by his position. Every team can be tempted by a young, dynamic point guard. If he doesn't go in the Top 10, chances are he goes in the Top 15.

 

Cleveland Mum on No. 1 Overall Pick Plans

The Cleveland Cavaliers had easy choices with their No. 1 overall picks back in 2011 and 2003. Picking Kyrie Irving and LeBron James were almost no-brainer decisions. There is no Lebron-like talent in this year's draft, which makes Cleveland's decision an almost foregone conclusion. 

Likely for this reason, the Cavaliers camp is keeping their draft plans close to the vest but one must think a big man is being considered. ESPN's Chad Ford believes that both Alex Len and Nerlens Noel are worth of top-four picks as does CBS Sports' Gary Parrish. Both believe Noel will be Cleveland's choice, which would bring the seven-footer in to help Irving and company.

Either Len or Noel would be solid additions to Cleveland. Selecting either would allow the team to do some interesting things with last year's first-round pick Tyler Zeller and this year's first-rounder.

 

New Orleans Pelicans and Trey Burke

After selecting Anthony Davis last season, the Pelicans are in need of some point guard help to pair with their young power forward.

It seems to be a general feeling among experts that the point guard the Pelicans are after is Michigan's Trey Burke. CBS Sports' Matt Moore and ESPN's Chad Ford both project Burke to the Pelicans. The New Orleans Times-Picayune's John Reid also considers Burke to be one of the team's three best options with the No. 6 overall pick.

Reid noted that the Pelicans only conducted pre-draft workouts with Burke and Carter-Williams. This fact leads one to believe both have to be the top names on New Orleans' board.

Either player makes sense for the Pelicans considering the team's pretty obvious need for a point guard. It will be interesting to see which player New Orleans chooses if both are still on the board after the first five selections.
