With the 2011 NBA Playoffs advancing to the conference finals, there are only four teams still playing. Meanwhile, the other 26 organizations are using this time to try to figure out how to better themselves in the offseason.

One of the main ways of improvement in the NBA is the NBA draft; just take a look at the Oklahoma City Thunder. They drafted Kevin Durant (No. 2 overall 2007), Russell Westbrook (No. 4 overall 2008), Serge Ibaka (No. 24 overall 2008) and James Harden (No. 3 overall 2009), all key contributors to their playoff success this season.

Obviously, for some teams it will take multiple drafts, but there are other teams that are just a smart selection away from reentering the playoff picture in 2011.

This is a look at the 10 best prospects in the draft.
