NBA Draft 2014: Projected first round order

The 2014 NBA Draft is still months away, but now that the odds have been set for the lottery we will begin to see countless mock drafts and projections surfacing in the coming weeks.

While we will not know the actual draft order until the lottery takes place, we do know how the bottom half of the draft will be playing out. Because of that, we also have a good idea of where every team will be selecting in the first-round thanks to the odds that are in line.

Of course, we always see a few teams in the lottery jump a few spots when luck falls their way, so it will be interesting to see how it all plays out.

1. Bucks 15-67 25%
