Now that the 2013 NBA Lottery is completed, it’s time to unveil the very first isportsweb.com NBA mock draft. The 2013 NBA Draft is set for Thursday, June 27, and last night the Cleveland Cavaliers secured their third No. 1 overall pick in the last 11 years. With the lack of foreseeable star-power in this year’s class, it will be intriguing to see if Dan Gilbert and the Cavaliers organization can create the same luck that they found in LeBron James and Kyrie Irving. Without further ado, here is the first 2013 NBA mock draft: 1. Cleveland Cavaliers — Nerlens Noel, Center, Kentucky 2. Orlando Magic — Ben McLemore, Shooting Guard, Kansas 3. Washington Wizards – Otto Porter, Small Forward, Georgetown 4. Charlotte Bobcats — Victor Oladipo, Shooting Guard, Indiana 5. Phoenix Suns — Anthony Bennett, Power Forward, UNLV 6.
