In honor of Thursday night's NBA draft, the Associated Press takes a look at the best and worst all-time picks for each of the league's 30 franchises.
The starting point for this exercise was 1966, when the territorial pick system went away and the draft began to look more like it does today. We're judging picks not on how sensible they seemed at the time, but on how much they ended up being worth to the selecting team — taking into account where each pick was in the draft and who else was available.
When it came to trades, we tried to use common sense, crediting whichever team was actually making the selection. — Associated Press
