The March Madness tournament hasn’t even begun yet one NBA team have seen enough. They already know who they will draft if given the opportunity. That team is the Milwaukee Bucks and the player in question is Kansas’ Freshman center Joel Embiid.

Teams’ generally don’t tip their hand this early but with the Bucks so bad this year they may as well look to see who’s out there. Embiid is our top rated player for the 2014 draft, and it looks like he will be the pick if he comes out, at least if Milwaukee gets it!

Bucks GM John Hammond will choose the player he thinks has the best chance of being a star. Right now it’s a three-man race, but sources indicate Hammond loves the skill, size and rapid progression of Joel Embiid. The Cameroon native is new to the game and has tremendous upside. Embiid can help the Bucks on both ends of the court, and while he recently told ESPN.com he might return to school, most feel that he’ll be in June’s draft.
