There may only be 73 days until the NBA draft, but that doesn't mean we can't start predicting who goes where.
The 2011 draft class isn't as good as years past, which means teams may have a difficult time choosing who to draft. There isn't quite a clear-cut No. 1 pick, so it really depends on who gets the top overall pick.
For this mock draft I'll be going by records, even though they don't do that for the real thing. The team with the worst record doesn't always end up with the top spot, but for now, we'll just go with that.
A few teams also have multiple lottery picks thanks to trades. Will they be able to draft a much-needed player to contribute right away?
There are multiple teams struggling in the NBA right now. There's less than a week left in the season, but these teams are already thinking about who to draft.
Stay tuned, as I'll be updating throughout the day with my NBA mock draft.
Note: Some players have yet to declare for the draft, and others are making the announcements as I update. Naturally those who decide to return to school will have a big impact on who goes where.
