Last night’s NBA Draft Lottery had a few surprises, but nearly as much surprise as the Bulls getting the number one slot a few years ago. The Wizards were lucky enough to have won the first pick of the draft, which they will likely select John Wall. Here is my analysis of what each team will do with its lottery pick this year:1. Wizards- John Wall- Easiest pick to make of the draft, he is the best college player in the nation and could lead this team for years to come

  1. 76ers- Evan Turner- The sixers need help everywhere on the court, but Turner is the next best player on the board.
  2. Nets- Derrick Favors- I think Demarcus Cousins is the better player, but Favors is the choice because the Nets already have a good center and could use the help at forward.
  3. Timberwolves- DeMarcus Cousins- Best center in college basketball the past year and has all of the size and athletic ability to make it far in professional basketball.
  4. Kings- Al Farouq Aminu- He is agood raw talent for the Kings to develop into a future star.
  5. Warriors- Greg Monroe- A good big man for the Warriors.
  6. Pistons- Hassan Whiteside- The Pistons need defensive help and Whiteside could help bring some back onto the court.
  7. Clippers- Wesley Johnson- A solid rookie for the Clippers as they rebuild their team.
  8. Jazz- Ed Davis- A good forward prospect for an underachieving team that is poised to return to the playoffs.
  9. Pacers-
