NBA Rising Stars Challenge 2013 draft open thread: Where will Bradley Beal get picked?

New, comments

The 2013 Rising Stars Challenge draft will be held on Thursday. Where will Bradley Beal get picked?

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

In a matter of a couple hours, Bradley Beal will be selected to either Team Shaq or Team Chuck for the 2013 Rising Stars Challenge. Any predictions on what pick he'll be? Will he go higher than 12th, like John Wall did last year?

For reference, here is the pool of players:

Sophomores

Kenneth Faried (Denver Nuggets)

Brandon Knight (Detroit Pistons)

Kawhi Leonard (San Antonio Spurs)

Chandler Parsons (Houston Rockets)

Klay Thompson (Golden State Warriors)

Tristan Thompson (Cleveland Cavaliers)

Nikola Vucevic (Orlando Magic)

Kemba Walker (Charlotte Bobcats)

Kyrie Irving (Cleveland Cavaliers)

Rookies

Damian Lillard (Portland Trail Blazers)

Anthony Davis (New Orleans Hornets)

Harrison Barnes (Warriors)

Beal

Andre Drummond (Detroit Pistons)

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (Bobcats)

Alexey Shved (Minnesota Timberwolves)

Dion Waiters (Cavaliers)

Tyler Zeller (Cavaliers)

I could see Beal going somewhere in the middle of the pack, but a lot of that would be due to the shallower pool of players. In any event, what is your guess?
