For well over two years now, this NBA draft class has been hyped as the best in a decade.

Finally, after Tuesday’s lottery, we have some idea where the gems of the 2014 crop might land.

Cleveland lost the best player of this generation and one of the best ever in LeBron James, but has been gifted with three No. 1 overall selections in the past four years.

Kyrie Irving was the choice one year, Anthony Bennett last time around. We will know in a month or so who it will be in 2014.

First, let’s take a look at the situations that would fit the top dogs the best:

Milwaukee Bucks, 25.0% chance of winning. Picking second — Best fit from the top of the class: Andrew Wiggins. Worst fit: Jabari Parker.

The Bucks will have Giannis Antetokounmpo manning the small forward spot for years to come, but Wiggins is expected to play shooting guard in the NBA.
