2018 NBA Draft: Every Team’s Dream 1st-Round Fit
As we inch closer to the playoffs, the lottery projections and draft order are becoming easier to picture. The race for the No. 1 overall odds is unbelievably tight, with six teams tied for a league-worst 18 wins.
NBA teams enter the draft targeting who they believe is both the best prospect and fit for their franchise. We picked out every team’s ideal fit based on where they are projected to select (using the current standings) and who we project could be available in that range. For the five teams with the lowest winning percentages, we made every prospect available.
For teams projected to pick at Nos. 6 and 7, we took away our top two prospects as options. And as we progressed deeper down the board, we eliminated even more prospects as options (based on who’s projected to be available).
Projected order based on standings heading into February 14
