Most analysts and pundits say Kentucky center Nerlens Noel is the top prospect for the NBA draft.

He retains that status despite a knee injury that probably will force him to miss some games next season and concerns over whether he has enough bulk to battle with NBA big men.

But when looking at the 14 teams relegated to the draft lottery, which will take place tonight in New York and will be televised on ESPN, you will find several teams that aren’t exactly in the market for a big man — including the Pistons.

The Pistons are content with their young big men — third-year power forward Greg Monroe and rookie center Andre Drummond, who will represent the Pistons on stage tonight when the TV lights pop on at Times Square Studios.

So whom would the Pistons select if Drummond provides the luck needed to parlay a 3.6% chance into the No. 1 pick when the draft is held June 27?

Teams looking for perimeter help — like the Pistons — might turn to Kansas shooting guard Ben McLemore.

McLemore, 20, who spoke to reporters at the NBA predraft combine last week, knows he is close to realizing a lifelong dream.
