Nerlens Noel is believed by many to be the top prospect in the 2013 NBA Draft class, and he is expected to go No. 1 overall to the Cleveland Cavaliers. There is, however, the slight chance that Noel could slip past the Cavaliers and be on the board whenever the Orlando Magic are on the clock. If that happens, the Magic will have done their homework on the former Kentucky star after bringing him in for a visit.
From ESPN’s Andy Katz:
UK’s Nerlens Noel will make his first visit to a team Sunday when he’s in Orlando (No. 2) pick. Cleveland (No. 1) not scheduled yet.

Otto Porter, Ben McLemore and Victor Oladipo have also been in the discussion for the Cleveland Cavaliers at the top of the draft.
Noel continues to recover from a torn ACL that he suffered during his freshman year at Kentucky, but that hasn’t scared teams away from considering him the elite prospect in this class. You can expect Noel to team up with Kyrie Irving in Cleveland when all is said and done, but when the draft rolls around anything is possible.
