Though the 2014 NBA draft is expected to include at least three players with a chance at the No. 1 overall pick - Jabari Parker, Andrew Wiggins and Joel Embiid - the player who ultimately hears his named called first will largely come down to which team lands the top pick.
Given each team's needs, some would likely go with the mature, ready-made game of Parker, who could end up being the closest thing we've seen to Paul Pierce since ... well, Paul Pierce. Others would have a hard time passing on Wiggins, the smooth, rangy top-tier athlete with enormous upside. But what about Embiid, the late-blooming skilled 7-footer? Which teams would select him No. 1 overall? The top 4 teams that considered to go that direction right now are the Bucks, Kings, Cavs, and Lakers.
Warriors sent G Toney Douglas to Miami, who sent C Joel Anthony, a 2015 first-round draft pick, a 2016 second-round draft pick and cash considerations to Boston. Boston sent Gs Jordan Crawford and MarShon Brooks to Golden State.
