NBA Draft 2014 Preview Podcast | Parker, Wiggins, Exum, Trades and MORE

Jonathan Daniel

Our preview podcast for the 2014 NBA Draft covers everything from the decision between Andrew Wiggins, Jabari Parker, Dante Exum and Joel Embiid, to the variety of trade options available to the Bucks.

Are you ready for the 2014 NBA Draft? Are you really ready? Well, our draft podcast preview is guaranteed to get you ready. The Milwaukee Bucks have been blessed with the No. 2 overall pick, and the real decision between Jabari Parker and Andrew Wiggins will likely be decided for them, but that doesn't mean it will be a simple night. Could dark horse prospect Dante Exum sneak his way into the second slot on draft night? Is Joel Embiid completely out of the question for the Bucks now, given the injury concerns that have emerged and multiplied? Could a trade of Brandon Knight, John Henson, Khris Middleton or Larry Sanders completely shake up the scenario and put Milwaukee in position to also grab a guy like Marcus Smart, Noah Vonleh or even Embiid?

Bucks GM John Hammond made it a point to avoid calling this a two-player draft of Wiggins and Parker, and he noted that he wants to keep the team's options open. This came after owner Marc Lasry took things in a different direction and downplayed the possibility of drafting Embiid. (Note: If you want some additional last-minute analysis of Parker and Wiggins, be sure to check out the DraftExpress post on the Synergy usage breakdown for both guys in relation to elite NBA wings.) Who knows what to believe at this point. With the variety of trade rumors circulating regarding the Cavaliers, Jazz, Magic and Sixers, the entire draft landscape becomes even more convoluted.

We did our best cover all of these NBA Draft topics and set the relevant markets for the Bucks heading into draft night, so if you need more analysis before the picks are made we're offering a comprehensive discussion on all the important topics. If you can't handle the 90-minute MEGA PODCAST posted below, we understand. But this is a big moment for the Bucks, so we wanted to present as much content as possible ahead of draft night. Take a listen and let us know what you think.
