With the 2013-14 NBA season quickly coming to an end for the Los Angeles Lakers, the attention will turn to the upcoming 2014 NBA Draft. The Lakers will have a lottery pick in the upcoming draft with potentially quite a few talented prospects available for the taking.
One draft prospect that will garner a lot of attention on draft night will be Andrew Wiggins of Kansas.
On Monday, Wiggins will announce his intends to enter the 2014 NBA Draft in a press conference according to ESPN:
Andrew Wiggins will announce he’s leaving Kansas after one season for the NBA at a news conference on Monday afternoon, sources told ESPN.com.
Along with Wiggins, there will be plenty of college players bound to draw a lot of attention on draft day on June 26. Wiggins will be near the top of the heap of draft prospects, but there will be competition for the top spot.
One of the players that will likely get consideration for the number one overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft is Jabari Parker of Duke. Although Parker has yet to announce he’s declaring for the draft, if he does, he’ll be one of the top players available.
Other players potentially available will be Julius Randle (Kentucky), Marcus Smart (Oklahoma State), Joel Embiid (Kansas) and Dante Exum (Australia) among many others. Randle has increased his draft stock by leading Kentucky into the Final Four, but may still go below the players mentioned above outside of Smart.
