With Kansas' scoring swingman Andrew Wiggins and Kentucky's athletic power forward Julius Randle expected to be one-and-dones, the 2014 NBA draft figures to have the most star-power atop the lottery since the Greg Oden-Kevin Durant draft of 2007.
With that in mind, there is a chance we could see our fair share of "tanking" next season. But if the season started today -- with the 2013 draft in the rear view mirror and free agency past its most meaningful stage -- these are the teams with the best chance of landing the top pick next June.
