Ranking Biggest Offensive Threats in 2014 NBA Draft Class
Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

There are a bunch of talented scorers and playmakers in the 2014 NBA draft class, but we wanted to pinpoint the elite prospects who will enter the league as the biggest offensive threats.

We based our rankings on a blend of collegiate/international production and proven skills. Who are the most effective scoring and playmaking weapons as we near the end of the season?

Promising youngsters like Joel Embiid and Noah Vonleh could eventually develop into offensive standouts, and competitors such as Julius Randle and Marcus Smart will find a way to produce. But they didn't make our list because their skills aren't comprehensive enough to warrant the "elite offensive threat" label as they turn pro.

So who did crack our list? We included first-round caliber prospects who not only produce lots of points per possession statistically, but also demonstrate the skills required to fuel offense at the next level.
