The NBA season is over and done with and the postseason is now upon us. But while there are some interesting story lines heading into the postseason, a lot of teams have already shifted to draft mode and are moving to get a head start on scouting this year’s class.

    How does embiid get drafted t
    wice?

  • Vince Ferlita

    For real. I don’t think he goes one either. I think it goes Wiggins Parker and Exum. Smart won’t fall out of top ten either. I see him going number 8. Trust me I wouldn’t mind for the magic to land Parker or Exum and Smart at 12 but it won’t happen. I think saric is the most tantalizing talent here. A point 3/4 with huge wing span and a game resembling Durant. Will he play a year in Europe and listen to his crazy dad? If he was a sure bet to come to the states next year he is an easy top ten pick. Two really good int players this year

    The magic come our super good. Smart and parker equals rings.

  • J Taylor

    If Smart is available,there is no way that the Lakers pass on an NBA ready PG to take a player that will require 2 years to acclimate…
