2013 NBA Draft: Cavaliers win the lottery, Thunder end up with 12th pick

New, comments

The NBA held its Draft Lottery tonight. Here is the draft order.


The 2013 NBA Draft Lottery was held tonight and to the surprise of many, the Cleveland Cavaliers won the draft lottery and will select the #1 pick for the 2nd time in 3 years.

The Thunder, who owned the Toronto Raptors' protected pick which was acquired via the Harden trade, was only top-3 protected. Since the Raptors did not win one of the top 3 drafting positions, the pick goes to OKC, and Sam Presti now has the 12th pick in the 2013 draft.

Now the speculation begins. Who do the Thunder take? Do they pursue a big man? The best player on the board? Do they try to package a deal together to trade for another player? Let's see the guesswork below!
