Best fits in 2013 NBA Draft

The NBA Draft is about 1 month away, The lottery is this tuesday and teams are interviewing Draft Prospects and from there will evaluate who they feel fits their team best. Well that’s what this post is about I'm putting my GM hat on today and I'm going to give you guys who I feel fits best from this draft class with certain teams.

Nerlens Noel: Orlando Magic

While I feel like he would be a great fit for the Bobcats, Noel would probably fit in better with the Magic. The reason I say this because He is freakishly athletic and has uncanny timing when it comes to blocking shots. If you look at the few teams left in the playoffs such as the Pacers and Grizzlies they have very solid front courts and makes up the backbone and foundation of their teams. If the Magic Decide to take Noel they will have a front court tandem of Nikola Vucevic and Nerlens Noel which will pose many problems for teams on the defensive side of the ball both are incredibly lengthy and will change many shots at the rim. Vucevic has shown the ability to rebound the basketball averaging 12 rebounds a game this year as well as posting a few 20 rebounds a game. The Magic ranked just outside the top 10 in rebounding this year and we all know how important rebounding is in the NBA, If Noel is the pick for the Magic then they should shoot up into the top 10 easily. Draft Noel and you have a solid foundation in Orlando.

Ben Mclemore: Charlotte Bobcats

The Bobcats have a lot of needs to be addressed this season and as we know the NBA is a guard oriented league in this day in age. Charlotte has a great Point Guard in Kemba Walker but don't have that guy that’s going to elevate him at the 2 spot. Ben Mclemore if chosen by Charlotte would make the Bobcats Backcourt the strongest part of its team. I feel like his game would compliments Kemba Walkers very well with his perimeter shooting and athleticism plus the upside for him is pretty high considering he is still in his teens. The Kansas freshman will make an immediate impact for Charlotte spreading the floor for guys Like Kemba and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and make their lives a whole lot easier. I talked about foundation for the Magic well the foundation will be built as well if there is a Kemba Walker/Ben Mclemore backcourt.

Anthony Bennett: Detroit Pistons

The Pistons already have solid front court with Greg Monroe and Andre Drummond but the the team lacks anybody who is multi dimensional the kind of guy you can use in many different Lineup combos. There really isn't anybody who gives them that kind of flexibility. Look at The roster and you will see there is no long term answer at Small forward, Look at the draft and you will see that Anthony Bennett who is a tweener can help the Pistons in a variety of ways. In only 1 season at UNLV Bennett proved to excel in many facets of the game averaging 16 Points per game, 8 rebounds, 1 steal shooting 53% from the field as well as 37% from the perimeter. He has a vast skill set and some upside, he has shown the ability to handle the basketball and continues to develop in so many areas of the Game I feel like the Pistons cant go wrong with this pick. If you have never seen Bennett play but want to know which NBA player scouts compare him to It's Larry Johnson, just some food for thought.

Shabazz Muhammed: Washington Wizards

The Wizards were one very Injured team last year John Wall and Nene both missed substantial time but when Healthy the Wizards proved they could play with anybody beating the likes of the Heat and Thunder. The Wizards have out together a nice team with additions of guys like Nene, Okafor, Beal but still don't have a definite scorer at the small forward position. Shabazz Muhammed out of UCLA would be the perfect fit for the Wizards he would provide instant offense for a team that 22nd in scoring. Then You look at what you have if you draft Shabazz you have young Nucleus of John Wall, Bradley Beal and Shabazz Muhammed. That’s something to be excited about if your a fan of the Wizards.

Tim Hardaway Jr.:Minnesota Timberwolves

Kevin Love has begun to express already with two years left on his contract that the Timberwolves need to show him that there is a plan in place to win or else he will leave. This team has legit no shooting guard so If you want to show love your serious draft Tim Hardaway Jr. The Timberwolves roster for all intensive purposes is a collection of stiffs no athletes on the roster what so ever. This team needs athletes so if available drafting Hardaway is a must.

The draft is very thin this year but if these players land in these destinations then they should be fine.
