NBA Draft Lottery 2013: Final Results

The Cleveland Cavaliers have struck gold yet again. For the second time and three years, the Cavs will have the No. 1 overall pick in the draft. They drafted Kyrie Irving with the first overall pick in the 2011 draft, which has proven to be a good one thus far, and they’re hoping for the same results in this year’s draft.

Kentucky product Nerlens Noel is projected to be the No. 1 overall pick by multiple mock drafts, which is feasible given the defensive presence he could potentially bring to Cleveland. A core of Irving, Noel, Dion Waiters and Tristan Thompson is intriguing, especially if you look ahead a few years down the line.

Glancing at the results, the odds were spot-on for the most part. The Washington Wizards jumped from the eighth slot to the third spot, but that’s the only glaring difference between the projected order and actual order.

So, the current ordering of the first round would shape up as follows, barring any trades, of course:

1. Cleveland Cavaliers

2. Orlando Magic

3. Washington Wizards

4. Charlotte Bobcats

5. Phoenix Suns

6. New Orleans Pelicans

7. Sacramento Kings

8. Detroit Pistons

9. Minnesota Timberwolves

10. Portland Trail Blazers

11. Philadelphia 76ers

12. Oklahoma City Thunder

13. Dallas Mavericks

14. Utah Jazz

15. Milwaukee Bucks

16. Boston Celtics

17. Atlanta Hawks

18. Atlanta Hawks

19. Cleveland Cavaliers

20. Chicago Bulls

21. Utah Jazz

22. Brooklyn Nets

23. Indiana Pacers

24. New York Knicks

25. Los Angeles Clippers

26. Minnesota Timberwolves

27. Denver Nuggets

28. San Antonio Spurs

29. Oklahoma City Thunder

30. Phoenix Suns
