NBA draft order set, so who goes No. 1?
By JON KRAWCZYNSKI
AP Basketball WriterThe Cleveland Cavaliers are on the clock.
The first big NBA draft question was answered Tuesday night when the Cavaliers
won the lottery for the No. 1 overall pick. But there are still plenty of
questions left with a draft that many talent evaluators believe lacks the star
power of previous years. And they start right at the top.
There is no consensus No. 1 selection. Kentucky big man Nerlens Noel might come
the closest, but he's recovering from a torn ACL that will likely keep him out
until at least December.
Kansas guard Ben McLemore, Indiana guard Victor Oladipo and Georgetown forward
Otto Porter also are considered some of the top players in the draft.
