With the Draft Lottery concluded and the order finally set, the only questions left to answer will be where Kyrie Irving and the other top potential picks will actually land.

The age-old question is whether a franchise should draft based on need or simply the best player available.

Of course, that depends on whether a team is trying to collect assets for the future or whether they're looking for the final piece to their already-constructed puzzle.

B/R NBA Featured Columnist, Joel C. Cordes, has identified what each team needs from their First Round pick. 

B/R Featured Columnist, Mike Schottey, will play the part of NBA General Manager, recommending the best way to address each franchise's needs.  Mike's selections will be listed in bold.

This B/R Special Feature will walk you through the NBA Draft, based now on the latest post Draft-lottery information available...


Note: These team needs and picks have been inspired by the automated selection system, of which both Joel and Mike are contributors.
