In response to hedleylamarr's comment:
I agree with the above posters.
The top 4, IMO, will be Embiid, Wiggins, Parker and Exum.
Both ORL and Utah may take PG's. That would mean Utah will take Smart
Let's look at it pragmatically- not logically, because these things aren't logical:
CLE - I am 90% certain they will take Embiid. 7 ft kids with potential don't grow on trees. And, they have Irving and Waiters (although they may not like him). It's a safe pick, and after last year, they need to go safe.
MIL - I've said all along - new owners want to put fannies in the seats...........so, Parker or Wiggins, and I say Wiggins because he's Canadian. And WIS is about as close to Canada as you can get.
PHI - They have MCW, and they have Noel. They will take Exum or Parker, in my scenario. Parker can score, so I think it will be Parker.
ORL - needs a PG - Jameer Nelson is D.O.N.E in ORL...........if PHI doesn't take Exum, they will. If PHI does take Exum, they will take Smart. They need a PG, man......
Which leaves OUR fate in the hands of the Utah Jazz. Do they like Burke? Are they going to resign Kantner?
It's Gordon, Vonleh, Smart/Exum or Randle here. If any team wants to get into the top 3, it's Utah, to get Parker, but I can't see it right now.
Utah may surprise and take McDermott, if they feel they'll lose Hayward, or Saric.
But, let's say they take Smart. That gives us our choice of Gordon or Vonleh (please not Randle).
Haven't decided yet who I like better. I'm still "smart"ing from not getting 1, 2 or 3!!

If no Bynum injury, no Gasol trade - last word!!
Word is they are thinking Vonleh @ 4 and trying out Payton and Napier for PG ... then what?
If ORL takes Vonleh at 4, Utah will take Exum at 5.
Now, we have to choose between Smart, Gordon, Randle or Mr X (Saric? Nurcic? Stauskus?)
With Vonleh gone, he may look to trade the pick. CHI is willing to give up both picks to move up.
