Pelicans Pick Up the 6th Pick of the 2013 NBA Draft

USA TODAY Sports

The most probable outcome for the Pelicans unfortunately came to fruition; New Orleans will select 6th in the 2013 NBA draft. Cleveland, nearly winners last year after selecting Kyrie Irving #1 overall in 2011, will pick at the top spot for the third time in eleven years.

The top 6: 1. Cleveland, 2. Orlando, 3. Washington, 4. Charlotte, 5. Phoenix, 6. New Orleans

It's unclear where New Orleans goes from here; top point guard prospect Trey Burke is likely out of the picture with Orlando and Phoenix both in the market for point guards. Draft Express' current top 6 is Nerlens Noel, Ben McLemore, Anthony Bennett, Victor Oladipo, Trey Burke, Otto Porter, and Alex Len.
