The NBA Draft: Will UK’s Nerlens Noel Still Go First?

Andy Lyons/Getty Images Sport

We are less than 24 hours away from Commissioner David Stern announcing the first pick in the 2013 NBA Draft. As of right now, most experts still have short-lived UK star Nerlens Noel as the number one pick. On the other hand, since Noel tore his ACL midway through his first season with Cats, some experts have shifted Noel to the second pick in favor of Kansas guard Ben McLemore.

On Monday, while visiting Clevleland (they have the no. 1 pick by the way) Noel was told his knee was “100 percent”. The center has also received a good knee report from Orlando and Washington, who have the numbers two and three draft picks respectively. If Noel is chosen first, he will be the third UK star to be drafted at the top in the last 3 years. John Wall went first in 2010, and Anthony Davis was picked first last year.

The drama will unfold live on ESPN and at WatchESPN.com Thursday night beginning at 6:00pm.
