Nothing settled entering Draft Day
The day is finally here. The NBA Draft is set to take place tonight in Brooklyn at the Barclays Center and for 60 players, it is the realization of a dream.
Where those players are going though is anybody's guess from top to bottom. This is not the Draft to be in the business of predicting where players will go. Mock drafts will be wrong. Do not enter them into any pools.
The Cavaliers have the top pick and may not take Nerlens Noel, the guy everyone has assumed would be the top pick for the majority of the year. They are toying with a number of options.
Option No. 1: draft Nerlens Noel like everyone projected. That would give them a shot-blocking center to pair with Kyrie Irving and provide the defense punch to Irving's offensive brilliance.
Option No. 2: draft Alex Len or someone else. The Maryland center has climbed draft boards recently with reports suggesting the Cavaliers may make him the top pick. That fe...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
One guy who’s moving up the board fast in this year’s draft is Alex Len. Rumors are he might even go #1 overall (which is a miracle/debacle considering the guy never even made 3rd team all CONFERENCE in his college career – but hey, its the Cavs right?). The bigger news though is we’ve finally located his girlfriend, and she’s a walking giant. Meet Essence Townsend, a player...
PHOENIX The highest draft choice the Phoenix Suns have made since 1987 rolled into the day-after press conference at U.S. Airways Center wearing a walking boot and a polo shirt accessorized by the new franchise logo.
He handled questions regarding his transition from college basketball to the NBA. He provided a partial explanation for pedestrian productivity during this past season...
NEW YORK (AP) -- The Phoenix Suns used the first pick in the NBA Draft on 7-foot center Alex Len from Ukraine via Maryland.
Len and Kentucky center Nerlens Noel -- popular choices in pre-draft speculation as candidates for the No. 1 pick by the Cleveland Cavaliers -- were both available with the fifth pick on an unpredictable draft night.
Cleveland instead selected UNLV freshman...
Draft time! It’s enough to get me off of Twitter to write more than 140 characters.
It’s an interesting draft for the Sixers. There is no big talent at the top, but the Sixers, and their new radio-silent analytics-loving GM, have 3 picks in the top 42. Sam Hinkie showed that he could find diamonds in the rough in Houston, and there are certainly some players that can be had from...
Taking stock of the ACC's prospects heading into Thursday night's NBA draft.
THE HIGH PICKS
Some mock drafts have Alex Len out of Maryland going No. 1 overall, which is -- to put it mildly -- head-scratching. There's a questionable (recent) injury history, not to mention inconsistency in his first two years in school. He's skilled, athletic and seven feet tall...
There are two types of people who talk about the NBA draft — those who say they know what will happen, and those who aren’t lying.
The 2013 draft is even more of a crapshoot than most, with only some consensus on who the Cleveland Cavaliers will take first overall and virtually no consensus after that. Everybody wants to trade away their picks in what is widely considered a relatively...
Nerlens Noel or Alex Len? Who will the Cleveland Cavaliers draft with the #1 overall selection in tonight's NBA Draft? Will they get their wish and trade it for an established player or will teams realize just how "weak" this draft class is and hold off on making those types of deals? This is what makes today one of the most entertaining days of the year. This...
The 2013 NBA Draft lacks one thing: star power. Incoming freshmen Jabari Parker and Andrew Wiggins would both be no-brainer picks if they were eligible for the draft. Instead, they are headed to class for a year (at least) and we are left with a draft that lacks Hall of Fame talent -- on the surface.
That said, finding talent within this year's field will be difficult. It is...

A few quick notes on the most recent NBA happenings:
It is now widely believed that unless the Cleveland Cavaliers receive a trade offer they cant refuse, they will select either Kentucky center Nerlens Noel or Maryland center Alex Len with the No. 1 overall draft pick.
Multiple league executives have told FOX Sports Ohio that the Cavs recent attempts to trade for a veteran small...
INDEPENDENCE, Ohio -- When the Cleveland Cavaliers decided to select UNLV forward Anthony Bennett with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, its safe to say there were no high fives in the room.
They had to decide on someone, and they had to do it by Thursday night. Had general manager Chris Grant and his staff been afforded another week, chances are, they wouldve used it...
CLEVELAND A few news and notes heading into Thursday night's NBA Draft.
As of Thursday morning, it was still unclear who the Cleveland Cavaliers will select with the No. 1 overall pick. It may be the first time in league history that's happened. But according to sources, three important people in the organization had three different opinions on which prospect fits best...
