USA TODAY Sports
Many of the top 2014 NBA draft prospects will jeopardize the jobs of veterans on their respective teams.

The 2014 NBA draft featured one of the deepest classes in league history, which should have certain veterans and front-office executives sweating their job security.

Many teams with high lottery picks will have little patience for an acclimation period. They'll expect to trot out their high-profile rookies on day one, putting veterans who play the same position in a precarious situation when it comes to their long-term futures.

Furthermore, the draft-day decisions of certain teams could have a major impact on the upcoming free-agency period. A number of squads throughout the first round appeared to hedge their bets on draft night, potentially signaling their lack of interest in bringing back their higher-paid veterans this July.
