07:26 AM ET 11.13 | The Andrew Wiggins sweepstakes? For some NBA fans, the June draft centers around the Kansas freshman and only him. There are a few NBA front-office executives and scouts, however, who aren't completely sure Wiggins will even be the No. 1 overall pick. "Until Wiggins learns how to play hard," one NBA scout said, "he's Kansas' third-best freshman." Not many talent evaluators are that critical of Wiggins, but they do agree that he's not the only college player who will merit a close look this season. Duke freshman forward Jabari Parker, Kentucky freshman forward Julius Randle, Oklahoma State sophomore guard Marcus Smart and Australian guard Dante Exum -- in addition to Wiggins -- could make this a particularly strong draft for NBA teams.

Wiggins Parker or Randle. Any order depending on need. I don't think you will go wrong.

At least 3 (probably 4-5) of the top picks are better than last year's #1.

The Jazz are gonna enjoy this pick or will it be the Cav's again...?

Don't forget Smart. Both Smart and Randle are from Dallas.

Probably 10 or more are better then last year's #1. Who was the #1 draft pick again? How many points did he score so far?

Laaaaaaaaaaaakers!!!!

They may be just 4-5 but they are treading water until Kobe returns.

They have more quality wins than a certain under performing team in Ohio.
