NBA Draft 2014: Final Team-by-Team Needs, Fits and Predictions

Every NBA team has a need. 

Yes, even the San Antonio Spurs, who are coming off one of the most dominant performances ever witnessed in the NBA Finals. From the Spurs to the Philadelphia 76ers—who lost 26 games in a row during the 2013-14 season but still have a bright future—each and every squad has a weakness that needs to be shored up. 

Question is, can it be addressed in the draft? 

That's trickier, seeing as draft positions change which teams have realistic access to certain players. You can't count on an elite prospect falling, but you also can't—well, shouldn't—reach for a second-round prospect in the teens. 

Now, every team might have a need, but not every team will be addressed in this article. The Brooklyn Nets, Golden State Warriors, New Orleans Pelicans, New York Knicks and Portland Trail Blazers don't have a pick during the June 26 proceedings, so none of them will be appearing in the coming slides. 

Before you take to the comment sections, just remember how difficult it is to make a pick in the draft with no selections at your disposal. And without making a pick, how can you possibly address a need?
