1) New Orleans Hornets
Anthony Davis, C-Kentucky
A no-brainer pick here as the Hornets hope Davis can immediately make an impact and change the team's fortunes around.
The 6'-10" center did it all in his only season at Kentucky, leading the Wildcats to a national title, and was the national player of the year.
Davis averaged 14 points, 10 rebounds and nearly 5 blocks a game as Kentucky went 38-2.
Davis is head and shoulders above the rest of the NBA draft prospects and is the clear-cut number one pick.
2) Charlotte Bobcats
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, F-Kentucky
Davis's frontcourt teammate gets taken by the win-starved Charlotte Bobcats. Gilchrist's stats at Kentucky weren't overwhelming, but scouts drool over his tenacious approach and competitiveness.
Gilchrist averaged 12 points and 7 rebounds in his freshman season at Kentucky.
Charlotte hopes the small forward can attack the basket and play shutdown defense.
3) Washington Wizards
Bradley Beal, G-Florida
The Wizards go for what they need instead of best available as they bypass Kansas forward Thomas Robinson and take shooting guard Bradley Beal.
Beals stock went through the roof late in his only season at Florida, where he averaged 14 points and 7 rebounds. Known for his smooth outside shot, Beal struggled, though, from 3-point land, making just 33 percent of his attempts from there.
The Wizards need players who can shoot and, hopefully, Beal fits the mold.
4) Cleveland Cavaliers
Harrison Barnes, F-North Carolina
Barnes could have been the 1 pick last year but opted to return to school and his stock dropped.
Barnes was inconsistent and appeared to play lackadaisically in his sophomore season, averaging 16 points and 6 rebounds a game.
Barnes's game is probably better suited for the NBA, as he is a smooth, athletically gifted jump shooter.
5) Sacramento Kings
Andre Drummond, C-UConn
The Kings take a gamble and select the biggest mystery of this NBA draft in Drummond.
The 6'-11" big man averaged 10 points, 8 rebounds and nearly 3 blocks a game for an underachieving Huskies team.
Drummond could be the piece in the middle that the Kings need, but he is seen as a bit of a project.
6) Portland Trailblazers
Thomas Robinson, F-Kansas
Robinson falls back into the Blazers' lap and Portland takes the power forward.
Robinson put up 17 points and 11 rebounds a game as he led Kansas to the national title game.
Robinson is an appealing prospect simply because of his vast improvement from his sophomore to junior season. Robinson came off the bench two seasons ago and averaged only 7 points and 6 boards.
7) Golden State Warriors
Jeremy Lamb, F-UConn
The silky smooth swingman may have also hurt his stock by returning for his sophomore season with the Huskies. After helping UConn win the national title in his freshman season, Lamb was expected to have a huge sophomore season.
While his stats were pretty good at 17 points and 5 rebounds, UConn struggled through a sub-par year with a lot of the blame falling on Lamb.
At 6'-5" and 180 pounds, the wiry Lamb will have to get a little stronger to handle the rigors of the NBA game.
8) Toronto Raptors
Meyers Leonard, C-Illinois
Toronto needs help up front and, more by default, the Raptors will select the 7'-1" big man.
Leonard improved mightily to average 13 points and 8 rebounds in his sophomore season, after seeing only limited time in his freshman season and scoring only 2 points a game.
9) Detroit Pistons
Jared Sullinger, F-Ohio State
The Pistons need some bulk down low and they get that with the 6'-9", 270-pound power forward.
Sullinger had identical numbers in his two seasons at Ohio State, averaging about 17 points and 10 rebounds a game.
10) New Orleans Hornets
Damian Lillard, G-Weber State
The Hornets got Davis at center with the top pick and now they get a scoring point guard in the 6'-3" Lillard. A four-year player at Weber State, Lillard averaged 24 points and 4 assists in his senior campaign.
11) Portland Trail Blazers
Tyler Zeller, C-North Carolina
Good fit here with the Blazers in need of frontcourt help.
The 7'-0" Zeller averaged 16 points and nearly 10 rebounds a game in his senior season with the Tar Heels.
Zeller won't be a star but he should be a reliable post-player.
12) Milwaukee Bucks
John Henson, F-North Carolina
Henson is 6'-10" with a huge wing span and can bring defensive help to the Bucks.
Henson can run the floor and finish around the rim, which would also make him an ideal fit with Milwaukee's style.
Henson averaged 13 points, 10 rebounds and 3 blocks in his junior season for the Tar Heels.
13) Phoenix Suns
Dion Waiters, G-Syracuse
With Steve Nash's future up in the air, Phoenix needs guard help and they get it with the 6'-4" Waiters who can play either point or shooting guard. Waiters said the Suns guaranteed him they would take him here. We shall see.
14) Houston Rockets
Kendall Marshall, G-North Carolina
With point guard Kyle Lowry's future in doubt, the Rockets should nab Marshall out of North Carolina. Marshall is a true floor general who averaged 8 points and 9 assists in his sophomore season for the Tar Heels.
