Projected NBA 2014 Round 1 Draft Pick Contracts

With the 2014 NBA Lottery having been held last night, the NBA Draft layout has been set.

News & Notes

This year's "tankfest" may not have landed the Bucks in the top spot, but it has allowed them to get the #2 overall spot which can land them a franchise changing player.

Cleveland had a 1.7% chance of landing the #1 overall spot in the draft. This will be there third time in four years with the top spot (2011 - Kyrie Irving, 2013 - Anthony Bennett).

Teams with multiple picks in the first round: Phoenix, Charlotte, Philadelphia, Oklahoma City, Orlando, Utah, Boston, Chicago. Phoenix has a league high three picks in the first round, so you might suspect that they package two of those picks to potentially move up.
