Where are the sleepers?

The 2014 NBA Draft will be no different from previous annual selection processes. There will be star-caliber players at the top and upside-laden prospects who are selected earlier than expected. The question on everyone’s mind is the same in 2014 as it is in every other year.

Who are the sleepers and where are they located?

With every passing year, a player is selected outside of the lottery, only to emerge as one of the best players from their respective draft classes. In recent seasons, Mason Plumlee of the Brooklyn Nets has turned heads after being selected No. 22 overall in 2013 and brother Miles Plumlee of the Phoenix Suns has done the same at No. 26 in 2012.

Jared Sullinger of the Boston Celtics at No. 21 in 2012, Kenneth Faried of the Denver Nuggets at No. 22 and Isaiah Thomas of the Sacramento Kings at No. 60 in 2011 continue the trend.

The question is, who are this year’s under-the-radar players with the most intriguing upside?
