Nerlens Noel is a likely top pick by Cleveland

The NBA Draft lottery was held Tuesday and Cleveland was the big winner, getting the top pick for the fourth time since 1985. The Cavs took Dion Waiters with the fourth pick overall last year and he averaged 14.7 points, so Ben McLemore of Kansas does not fit a real need. Due to this, I have Nerlens Noel of Kentucky is my projected top selection. The following is my latest mock draft

1 Cleveland Nerlens Noel C/PF Kentucky
2 Orlando Ben McLemore SG Kansas
3 Washington Otto Porter Jr. SF Georgetown
4 Charlotte Victor Oladipo SG Indiana
5 Phoenix Anthony Bennett PF UNLV
6 New Orleans Alex Len C Maryland
7 Sacramento Trey Burke PG Michigan
8 Detroit Michael Carter-Williams PG Syracuse
9 Minnesota C.J. McCollum SG Lehigh
10 Portland Cody Zeller C Indiana
11 Philadelphia Steven Adams C Pittsburgh
12 Oklahoma City Mason Plumlee PF Duke
13 Dallas Kelly Olynyk C Gonzaga
14 Utah Shabazz Muhammad SF UCLA
