For anyone who isn't familiar with how the NBA draft works, a "lottery pick" is anywhere in the Top 14. I got a A- grade with my all-round point guard and got drafted 14th by the Houston Rockets (even though the mock draft stated I would be 15th by the Indiana Pacers).

Teams with a "draft lottery pick"
1st & 4th - Cleveland Cavaliers
2nd - Minnesota Timberwolves
3rd & 12th - Utah Jazz
5th - Toronto Raptors
6th - Washington Wizards
7th - Sacramento Kings
8th - Detroit Pistons
9th - Charlotte Bobcats
10th - Milwaukee Bucks
11th - Golden State Warriors
13th - Phoenix Suns
14th - Houston Rockets

As stated by GatorSixCharlie, getting an A grade during the "Rookie Showcase" helps to getting drafted in the top 10, but as commented by Ninja Scroll, it is not required, as he got drafted 13th by the Phoenix Suns with a rating of C- (see his comment below for more info).

After the showcase, you are interviewed by three teams. If the team interviewing you don't have a draft lottery pick, give answers to indicate you don't want to be drafted by them (Y is usual the answer to pick - not guarenteed). If the team DO have a lottery pick, be as professional as you can and hope you get drafted by them.

Don't just go by the "mock draft" and assume you are gonna get drafted where it tells you. As I stated earlier, I was mocked to be drafted 15th by Indiana, and ended up 14th by Houston. If you get drafted anywhere between 1-14, once you walk onto the stage and it says "Congratulations! You've been drafted!", the achievement will pop.
Ninja Scroll I actually played the pre-draft game before I came to see the solutions and finished the pre-game w/ a C- score w/ 15 PTS, 10 Assist, 5 Rebounds, & 1 Steal as a starting PG. I did 3 interviews which started w/ the Suns followed by Utah, and I can't remember the 3rd team.
Then the Mock had me going 13th to the PHX Suns and what do you know, I was drafted by the Suns. Achievement Unlocked!
I did this going straight through the game w/o savings because I didn't know how the My Player would work in this years edition and not knowing my score would matter for the draft.
Basically it is not required to get an A score to get drafted. I think you just need to put up some nice stats and you can still make mistakes because I had 4 turnovers and it was mentioned as my weakness in my Mock Draft stats.

Good solution, but please edit so everyone knows it is not required to score any A's to be drafted. Yes it would almost assure you a pick in the 1st round, but to save your game over and over is a waste of time. Just play a smart game with a good stat line and you should be okay to get drafted as I did w/ a C-. My score went down due to allowing the other PG to score and those 4 turnovers. I only made two bad shots. For whatever reason as a PG they move you to the 2 guard (shooting guard) and those bastards were hogging the ball, so I called for it too much and my grade line went down for asking for the ball too much. Hey, I wanted to pad my stats dammit! LOL! =P

Borders I keep getting a B score in the showcase, but I only get drafted by 15-17th round teams. I don't understand. :(

assassinDMG @Borders Sorry about that. I guess it largely depends on your stats. If you get something around 15 pts, a few assists, some steals, you're gonna get noticed. When I got drafted with an A- grade, I got around 12pts, 4 assists and 1 steal, but playing double team helped my grade immensely. As I said also, a good pre-draft interview with a team with a draft lottery team (as well as a poor interview with one outside the top 14) helps also. Any other issues, drop me a pm if you wish and I'll do my best to help out.

DFlisxKnicks66 Just follow the video on youtube(NBA 2k12 My Player How to Get the Best Team), trade all players you want on to one team, no trade under contact for all players except like 2 so they trade those players for you, and make sure you leave a bad player on that team so you can take his place once you get traded. Then, create your my player, get drafted on to that team or get traded to that team, evolve into the starting position, and win!!! This is the BEST way to win a lot of games and to win a championship. Thanks for watching!!! Like, comment about how this helped you, and subscribe!!!
