The college basketball season started this weekend and of course with that the countdown to the 2013 NBA Draft has begun. Doing a mock draft this early in the year is very difficult for a few reasons. The standings in the NBA change on a daily basis, so while teams like the Los Angeles Lakers are in the top five right now, odds are they’ll move down the board before the end of the season. Since it is so early in the year it’s also hard to gauge what team needs are. While we have a slight idea, it too could change drastically before the end of the season. Because of that, player rankings are taken into consideration almost as much as team needs in our first mock draft of the season.
