In order to get a better grasp of the 2014 NBA draft class, we broke down the tiers of talent at each position.
Between the plethora of college hoops stars and international prospects, each position offers a rich crop of elite options. However, some spots (such as small forward) are deeper than others.
We assembled these sets of tiers based on current talent and potential. Not every tier has the same amount of prospects, although we limited our group to 5-7 players per position.*
Who made the top three tiers, and what drives their NBA value? Find out as we evaluate the best of 2014.
*5-7 players per position except for small forward, which included eight because the position is so deep.
**Omitted probable 2015 draftees such as the Harrison twins, Mario Hezonja, etc. Also omitted injured players such as Spencer Dinwiddie and Mitch McGary, as their draft declarations are uncertain.
