Most GMs will tell you they always draft for talent, never for need. The problem with that theory is most teams always need more big men.

The ability of an athletic, 6-foot-10 power player to change the course of a game or season is proven, and most teams, especially bad ones, are always in the hunt for them.

That's why, year after year, the lottery is usually dominated by folks 6-8 and taller.
