With the 2014 NBA Draft still a good distance away, there is plenty of time to see where draft prospects will rank and how they will be viewed in the eyes of NBA general managers and scouts. However, that won’t stop countless mock drafts from surfacing around the web.
But can we really attempt a mock draft if we don’t know the results of the NBA draft lottery? Of course we can.
Sure, you could simply go by the lottery odds to set the order, but the folks at ESPN have ramped things up a notch to make the lottery prediction experience even more fun.
With the 2014 NBA Mock draft simulator, with the click of a button you can get a random order that plays out with the current odds. Chances are the Milwaukee Bucks will land the No. 1 pick, but you can’t be sure.
ESPN is then kind enough to fill out the lottery picks so we can get a clear idea of how everything could play out.
As an added bonus, you even get a scouting report on the top players so you can learn more about the player who could be your team’s next star.
Below is an example of the presentation once the simulator plays out:
So go have some fun and mock away!
