It’s been a long time since so many teams have been clamoring for the top spot in the NBA Draft; probably because at the top of this class are some talented and athletic kids ready to prove themselves at the pro level.
This year’s NBA Draft has a huge name at the top, and we all know who he is. The interesting part about it is that there’s a lot of talent that may not be “All-Star caliber”, but still ready to take on a major role for a team right away.
In today's 2019 NBA Mock Draft Lottery Simulator, the Wizards end up at No. 2 with the Pelicans landing that coveted No. 1 spot. Whether it's because the basketball gods look favorably on the Pels in a post-Anthony Davis world, or because the draft lottery may or may not be rigged, things could get weird.
That's what we are examining today.
This is most definitely going to shake up the NBA landscape!
