With Philadelphia and the L.A. Lakers getting the top two selections Tuesday in the NBA draft lottery, they are expected to take Duke's Brandon Ingram and LSU's Ben Simmons in some combination at the top of the draft.
Dragan Bender of Maccabi Tel Aviv, California's Jaylen Brown, Providence's Kris Dunn and Kentucky's Jamal Murray are considered excellent prospects who will likely to be selected right behind Ingram and Simmons.
