The 2012 NBA Draft order has been set and teams are now plotting their strategies. Everyone knows Anthony Davis will go No. 1, but after that the draft is full of questions.
Who will gamble on Andre Drummond?
What is the world are the Bobcats going to do at No. 2?
And just how many Kentucky players are going to get drafted on June 28th?
New Orleans hit the jackpot when the Hornets won the NBA Draft lottery and the rights to select Davis.
It's a no-brainer pick, and Davis can make an immediate impact in New Orleans.
STOCK: Holding at No. 1
The jury is still out on who the Bobcats will take with the No. 2 selection, but the worst team in NBA history certainly has some holes to fill.
Kidd-Gilchrist is a versatile wing that could fill multiple positions in Charlotte, and he has the potential to grow into an elite defender with time.
Some have questioned Kidd-Gilchrist's shooting ability, though, and the Bobcats may favour a proven scorer like Bradley Beal to pair up with Kemba Walker.
STOCK: Falling slightly, could slide to No. 3.
Bradley Beal is a dynamic shooting guard who compares himself to Ray Allen, and NBA scouts love his game. He has individual workouts scheduled with the Bobcats, Wizards and Cavaliers -- and he fully expects to go in the top four.
Barnes hurt himself by sticking around in Chapel Hill another year, and he's got as big a list of weaknesses as he does strengths.
Barnes' jump-shot and ego, however, are already primed for the NBA. Expect him to score early and often.
Many sources are reporting that the Cavaliers are very interested in Barnes at No. 4, especially if Bradley Beal and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist are already off the board.
Andre Drummond is the biggest gamble in the entire draft. He's freakishly athletic and could develop into a stud centre, but he could just as easily be the next Hasheem Thabeet.
If Drummond pans out, however, the Kings could assemble one of the most dominant front lines in the NBA by pairing him with DeMarcus Cousins. Though Thomas Robinson is the more natural fit, it might be difficult to pass up on Drummond's potential.
Stock: Holding in the top 10.
Thomas Robinson is an elite rebounder with an NBA-ready body, and he should be able to contribute immediately.
LaMarcus Aldridge just had hip surgery, and J.J. Hickson isn't the player many thought he would become. Robinson would be a good fit for rebuilding Portland.
STOCK: Holding in the top 10.
Jared Sullinger may have hurt his draft stock a bit by staying in college an extra year, but he's still one of the most polished big men on the board.
He'd be able to learn from the veteran Andrew Bogut in Golden State, and he's a proven winner.
Kendall Marshall is a pure passer with extraordinary court vision, and the Raptors need some ingenuity at point guard to boost what was bad offence last year.
He's not a great athlete or scorer, but Marshall is hands down the best distributor in the draft.
John Henson is a bit of a risky pick given his slim build -- the kid came to college at 6-foot-11 and 183 pounds and his nickname is 'Gumby' -- but his defensive instincts and athleticism are unparalleled.
With Greg Monroe taking charge of the offensive production, Henson could be a perfect complement in Detroit.
Lillard has a game comparable to Derrick Rose with his ability to score the ball, and the Hornets could use a suitable replacement to Chris Paul.
The only knock on Lillard? He played for Weber State in the Big Sky Conference, meaning he accumulated great stats against sub-standard competition.
Lamb is an athletic, ultra-long wing who can make jump-shots and become an All-Star defender if he exerts himself.
He's also got a winning pedigree, as he won the 2011 NCAA national championship with UConn.
Zeller is a seven-footer with a very polished offensive game, and he's capable of stepping out and draining elbow jumpshots.
For a team now without Andrew Bogut, Zeller is a sensible replacement.
Waiters would be a perfect fit for the Suns in an uptempo offence. He's a dangerous scorer who could make a run at the Rookie of the Year trophy.
Terrence Jones could play at either small forward or power forward in the NBA, and the Rockets need help at both positions.
Austin Rivers is an exciting scorer, though he isn't very efficient and will be punished by NBA defenses until he puts on some muscle.
The 76ers need depth at guard, and Rivers has a Duke connection in Philadelphia. Sixers coach Doug Collins is the father of Chris Collins, associate head coach under Mike Krzyzewski at Duke.
Meyers Leonard is still raw as a centre having not played much for Illinois in college, but he's 7-foot-1 and has a lot of potential.
Wroten is a hyper-athletic guard from Washington with great speed and ability to get to the rim.
With the possibility of no Jason Kidd next year, Dallas will be looking for a point guard in the draft if the Mavericks can't steal Deron Williams from Brooklyn.
You can't teach height, and Melo is one of few seven-footers in the draft.
He's not great on the offensive end, but he could serve as a defensive anchor behind Kevin Love in Minnesota.
Harkless is a smooth scorer from St. John's, but he also pulled down 8.6 rebounds a game last season in the Big East.
In Orlando, Harkless would have time to learn from veteran Hedo Turkoglu before rotating into a starting role.
Perry Jones is a great athlete and had good all-around numbers at Baylor, but he's my pick to slide down the charts a bit, as teams have been questioning his passion for basketball.
Usually, that's not a good sign.
Ross scored 16.4 points a game last year for Washington, Boston will soon need a perimeter scorer to replace the ageing Ray Allen.
Draymond Green is a perfect fit for Boston.
He plays like Paul Pierce (who can't play forever), and his last name is Green.
Not a lot of people got to see Andrew Nicholson play at St. Bonaventure, but he was a force of nature.
If the Hawks are finally ready to move past Marvin Williams, Nicholson could be a solid replacement.
Quincy Miller needs time to develop and won't make a big impact in his first year, but he's got all the tools necessary to become a dangerous swingman for the Cavaliers in a few years.
Marquis Teague didn't get a lot of the headlines at Kentucky, but he did win a national championship.
He's a solid perimeter defender who would be a definite upgrade from Gilbert Arenas at backup point guard.
White is a total package that can score, rebound and play defence.
Though he'd need to remold his big body a bit, he would be a good backup to Danny Granger in Indiana.
The Heat need help in the front court, but they might not have much to pick from at No. 27.
If Miami doesn't trade up, the Heat still have a handful of guards on the board that could shore up the perimeter and provide some backup to Dwyane Wade and LeBron James.
Taylor is a versatile wing player with the ability to knock down the 3-point shot, so he would be a good fit for when Kevin Durant is catching a breather.
Doron Lamb may have been overshadowed by his star teammates at Kentucky, but Lamb is a talented guard who showed his scoring ability in the national championship game.
With the long-term status of Derrick Rose's knees uncertain, it might not be a bad idea for Chicago to add depth at guard.
Ezeli had never played organised basketball until he got to Vanderbilt, so it's safe to say the big man hasn't reached his potential yet.
He's a project piece, but he could be a steal in the long run.
