2011 NBA Mock Draft: How Will NBA Lottery Shake Up Draft Projections?

The 2011 NBA Draft is 37 days away, but the crucial draft lottery is tonight. 

Last year, we witnessed the Washington Wizards and Philadelphia 76ers land the top two spots despite not having the best chances. 

Will the same thing happen tonight? Could the Wizards jump to the top spot again? Or will a team like Sacramento or Utah leapfrog to the No. 1 pick? 

Minnesota and Cleveland have the best chances for the first overall pick, but which one will be lucky enough to get it?

Tonight's NBA Draft Lottery selection is a very important event, especially considering this year's draft class isn't as strong as years past.

One thing we know for sure, whichever teams get No. 1 and No. 2 tonight will be drafting Kyrie Irving and Derrick Williams. It all depends on which team is picking first, but all signs point to those two being the top picks.

A few players could come close to passing them, especially if they excel during pre-draft workouts. 

Since we won't know the draft order until tonight, teams will be making their picks in my mock based on record. 

Stay tuned throughout the day as I update you with my latest mock draft.
