If the 2014 NBA draft goes as currently projected in June, eight of the top 10 picks in the draft will be teenagers who have played only one year of college basketball.

The most coveted prospects in the draft -- Andrew Wiggins, Jabari Parker, Joel Embiid, Julius Randle, Aaron Gordon, Noah Vonleh and Tyler Ennis -- are all college freshmen.

However, if new NBA commissioner Adam Silver gets his way, they might be the last freshman class to be able to declare for the draft.
