NBA draft order set, so who goes No. 1?

The Cleveland Cavaliers are on the clock.

The first big NBA draft question was answered Tuesday night when the Cavaliers won the lottery for the No. 1 overall pick. But there are still plenty of questions left with a draft that many talent evaluators believe lacks the star power of previous years. And they start right at the top.

There is no consensus No. 1 selection. Kentucky big man Nerlens Noel might come the closest, but he's recovering from a torn ACL that will likely keep him out until at least December.

Kansas guard Ben McLemore, Indiana guard Victor Oladipo and Georgetown forward Otto Porter also are considered some of the top players in the draft.
