The 2014 NBA Draft Lottery is over and we know the order in which the lowliest teams in the league will select their hopeful future stars in late June. That means several young talents are now sweating it out, waiting to find out where their NBA careers will take place. For five specific players, seeing their new teams announced on draft night will be great experiences if seen live. Make sure you don’t miss them with Slingbox.
While he’s arguably the best player in this draft, Joel Embiid is fifth on the list because he’s a relatively safe pick. Thus, the team that picks him will undoubtedly benefit right away from his solid play. Make sure you’re watching so you’ll know which losing team actually has a chance to turn around its fortunes after drafting Embiid.
The wild card in this year’s draft, Dante Exum could make or break the team that takes him within the top five picks. He could turn out to be the next great non-U.S. player in the league, which is what one team will be hoping for, or he could be another imported bust. Seeing which team takes the risk on him will be worth watching live.
A big man who is highly underrated in this year’s draft is Julius Randle, who some say has an outside shot at being selected first overall. If put in the right system with a seven-footer next to him in the paint, he could be very successful right off the bat. It will be very interesting to see which team takes him and thus if he ends up being a good fit as a rookie.
The smartest player in this year’s draft is also arguably the best overall, so it will be ironic if Jabari Parker is taken by an organization with a history of ill-advised moves. That irony will be worth seeing live, especially if it turns out to be the opposite type of irony and he ends up with a team that’s usually good but just had a bad year.
The player on whom everyone is banking will be a superstar in the NBA is Andrew Wiggins. If he goes first overall to the Cleveland Cavaliers, the team will have two dynamite guards (assuming Kyrie Irving stays) and will have faint hope of a LeBron James homecoming as well. That will definitely be worth seeing live.
