WASHINGTON: John Wall, PG, 6-4,

196, Fr, Kentucky

The Wizards needed a break after a season of turmoil and landed a big one in Wall.

PHILADELPHIA: Evan Turner, SG/SF, 6-7, 205, Jr., Ohio State

Turner is the consensus No. 2 pick and considered to be this year's most polished player.

NEW JERSEY: Derrick Favors, PF, 6-10, 245, Fr., Georgia Tech

Not a bad consolation prize to put next to Brook Lopez after Draft Lottery misfortune.

MINNESOTA: DeMarcus Cousins, C, 6-10, 270, Fr., Kentucky

Big men Al Jefferson and Kevin Love aren't enough.

SACRAMENTO: Cole Aldrich, C, 6-11, 245, Jr., Kansas

Look for the Kings to take a big man.

GOLDEN STATE: Greg Monroe, C, 6-11, 247, Soph., Georgetown

The Warriors need post players, and Monroe is versatile and athletic enough.

DETROIT: Wesley Johnson, SF, 6-8, 196, Jr., Syracuse

Drawing comparisons to Shawn Marion, Johnson could benefit under Tayshaun Prince's tutelage.

L.A. CLIPPERS: Al Farouq-Aminu, SF/PF, 6-8, 210, Soph., Wake Forest

Without a glaring hole, the Clippers can go a number of ways but take the best talent.

UTAH: Gordon Hayward, SF, 6-8, 210, Soph., Butler

Ronnie Brewer is gone, and Utah could lose Kyle Korver this summer. INDIANA: Ed Davis, PF,

6-9, 215, Soph., North Carolina

An athletic post player with excellent athleticism, Davis will fit nicely.

NEW ORLEANS: Xavier Henry, SG, 6-6, 210, Fr., Kansas

When J.R. Smith is the best wingman Chris Paul has teamed with there's a problem.

MEMPHIS: Patrick Patterson, PF, 6-8, 240, Sr., Kentucky

The Grizzlies need more beef off the bench.
