The worst known secret in basketball is Washington will take John Wall with the No. 1 pick. The Wizards need help at every position, but Wall showed he’s the real deal at point guard in his one year at Kentucky.
The draft starts to get interesting at No. 2. Philadelphia could use a big man, but it will be very hard to pass up Ohio State’s Evan Turner. He had arguably a better year than Wall last season and is more seasoned at 21-years-old.
Current prop: Will Turner play his first NBA regular season game for Philly (-300) or another team (+200)? Philly is the prediction here.
New Jersey has the third pick. They had the worst record in the league, but got hurt by the dreaded lottery. Not only will they miss on the consensus top two players, but there is no clear-cut No. 3.
Current Prop: Will Georgia Tech’s Derrick Favors play his first NBA regular season game for New Jersey (-200) or another team (+150)? Favors’ workouts haven’t been great and there are indications that Syracuse’ Wesley Johnson could be the pick. The ‘another team’ is the prediction here.
Looking outside the top-3, there are some interesting odds as well. Butler’s Gordon Hayward made a huge name for himself with their improbable run to the title game against Duke.
Current Prop: Will Hayward be a lottery pick (1-14)? The Answer ‘Yes’ is -200 and ‘No’ is +150. Hayward is pretty athletic, but the history of white small forwards in the NBA isn’t pretty. He was thought to go as high as No. 8 to the Clippers, but seems to be slipping. Still, he should stay within the lottery.
Finally, there are some players who aren’t worried about big contracts or which team will take them. They just want to get drafted period! West Virginia’s Da’Sean Butler is one of those.
Current Prop: Will Butler be drafted in the first or second round? The Answer ‘Yes’ is -150 and ‘No’ is +110. Butler was considered a first round pick before tearing his ACL in the Final Four. He won’t give a team much (or anything) this year, but he’s worth a second-rounder to stash away as he recovers.
