Poll: 2013 NBA Draft Take Two (Pick No. 10)

Drafting players is far from an exact science, and many a GM has been second-guessed for his draft night decisions. I’m willing to bet that every team executive has at least one pick that he would like a mulligan for. While life, and the NBA, doesn’t allow for such opportunities, we at Hoops Rumors decided it would be fun to give our readers a second take at picking players, complete with the benefit of hindsight.

The first NBA Draft lottery picks we’re tackling is 2013’s, the year that the Cavaliers surprised quite a few people when they nabbed UNLV forward Anthony Bennett with the No. 1 overall pick. Quite a number of talented players were in that year’s player pool, including Victor OladipoNerlens NoelGiannis Antetokounmpo, and Rudy Gobert, just to rattle off a few.

In the days ahead, we’ll be posting a series of reader polls that will ask you to vote on the player whom you believe should have been selected with each pick in the 2013 Draft lottery. We’ll continue onward with the Trail Blazers, who held the No. 10 overall pick that season. Readers, you are now on the clock! Cast your vote for Portland’s pick and check back tomorrow night for the results, as well as for your chance to vote for whom the Sixers should have taken at No. 11. But don’t limit yourself to a simple button click. Take to the comments section below and share your thoughts on the pick and why you voted the way that you did. Also, if I fail to list a player who you think should be selected, feel free to post that in the comments section and I’ll be certain to tally those votes as well.

Draft Results thus far:

  1. Cavaliers: Giannis Antetokounmpo
  2. Magic: Victor Oladipo
  3. Wizards: Nerlens Noel
  4. Hornets: Rudy Gobert
  5. Suns: Michael Carter-Williams
  6. 76ers: Ben McLemore
  7. Kings: Mason Plumlee
  8. Pistons: Kentavious Caldwell-Pope
  9. Jazz: Dennis Schröder

    FWIW, love this idea, hope you guys do this for future (and past) drafts.

      Thanks! We are indeed intending on doing this again with another draft. I’ll be posting a poll along with pick no. 13 for readers to vote on which one we’ll tackle next, so keep an eye out for that.

    How long before someone does what the Cavaliers did by taking a chance on the potential of Anthony Bennett?

    • With hindsight being 20 20 I have a feeling no one would seriously consider him a lottery pick

    Shabazz Muhammad seems to be severely underrated. Definitely think he should have gone already especially over guys like McLemore and Pope, both players he outproduced in less minutes.
