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.

    Likely go 1 or 2 in the draft but IMO not on Lakers radar if they end up selecting 3rd and beyond.

      Nope nope nope, this would be great but Lakers are probably gonna end up with 5th-7th seed meaning either

      Randle/Gordon/Smart/Vonleh for us

      • Chippaz

        That’s why its a lottery 5th seed doesn’t mean 5th pick. Look at the draft history worst record never gets the 1st pick.
