Julius Randle started the season strongly with Kentucky, but expectations have been tempered by NBA scouts or general managers.

"NBA teams still like Randle, a lot, but I haven't really heard a team (GM or scout) say they'd take him No. 1 in over a month," wrote Chad Ford.

Andrew Wiggins and Jabari Parker are the likely candidates for the top overall pick, while Joel Embiid and Dante Exum are darkhorses.
