The 3-7 picks

Well after the draft lottery I've seen some of the responses of the Fans in many forums,also some writers

now assuming that Wall&Turner goes 1&2

I think most of us here was saying that Cousins is the 3rd best player in the draft,right?

most ppl think that Favors will be the 3rd pick b/c he fits the Nets better as Cousins is a C and they already have Loopez

now the Wolves fans seems they really think Cousins is a bust (would love to hear their fans in this site about that) which really surprises me,so It seems they would want wes Johnson (if Kahn decided to take him it is better to trade down)
p.s they say Kahn already said he wants a good character in his prospects so they think this automatically makes Cousins for the Wolves difficult to happen

the 5th pick will be the Kings,if Cousins was available I would really be surprised if they passed on him,but they surprised us before when they took Evans over Rubio

6th Pick GSW: Al-Farouq Aminu makes some sense to me as these site mock draft but won't be surprised if they took Monroe

7th pick :Monroe looks perfect for the Pistons

now obviously this looks the same as this site mock draft but do you think it will happen?
I mean Cousin was always thought to be 3rd best player and some even thought he is the one who could go for 2nd pick over Turner and now he may go 5th!!!!
does any body knows any information about what any teams thinks,I know fans thought isn't accurate but they know their team better

Coul the Sixers take Cousins?

Coul the Sixers take Cousins? They have Iggy and Holiday, who aren't that bad, but Dalembert sucks. What if they take Cousins and leave New Jersey to take Turner (a great fit for the Nets).
Then the Timberwolves will probably take Johnson and that means Favors falls to Sac, but the Kings could gamble on Aminu, because they have good PF's in Landry and Thompson. That means Derrick Favors slips to the Warriors and will probably florish in their up tempo system. That leaves Pistons with Greg Monroe, who I think they'll be really happy to get
I'm not saying this will happen, but it might

2nd Cousins
3rd Turner
4th Johnson
5th Aminu
6th Favors
7th Monroe

Do you guys understand that

Do you guys understand that Wes Johnson can't create his own offense and the Wolves won't have a playmaker until Rubio comes in 2011, Johnson will fail miserably with the Wolves if they select him, I don't even want to hear that Jonny Flynn is a playmaker, he's a scoring PG, nothing more. Selecting Johnson would be a disaster for the Wolves.

Doubt it Anton123. The Sixers

Doubt it Anton123. The Sixers have enough problems with their new coach. I believe they are still searching for one. If they do draft Cousins their New Coach would have to be intact and be willing to deal with Cousins attitude problems. Few coaches have the patience to deal with a player like Cousins. Turner is a safer pick and then trade Iggy to the Wolves for Jefferson.

3 Favors
4 Cousins
5 Johnson
6 Monroe
7 Aminu or Udoh

7th pick

Really hoping the Pistons can get Monroe with the 7th pick, If not Monroe, I could see Ed Davis....they have enough 6'8 SFs so please not Aminu. Udoh is too limited offensively, Pistons need someone with size who can score.

I don't understand why

I don't understand why everyone is hating on Cousins. You guys act like he killed someone. I know about the techs and elbows this season, but to me he's no worse than Rasheed Wallace. Calipari helped him mature alot this year.

No hate on Cousins but he

No hate on Cousins but he should really learn how to fix his act. If he doesn't he'll be like Marbury, AI, Walker now. No one wanting him.

Wolves are going to take Wes at 4

There is no doubt in my mind that the wolves are going to take Wes Johnson at 4, if their at 4. I'm from the TC and I believe Wes is the best fit at that draft position. The Wolves want to run and they need a wing player who can shoot the ball from deep to open up the inside.

Wes is a high flier who can shoot the ball from deep.

Who would create Wes'

Who would create Wes' offense? You know he sure as hell can't, Jonny? Yeah right, Kahn will avoid Johnson like the plague, they're looking for players with star potential, they don't like Cousins because they feel he will fail with his first team and break out with his second team, they also don't like him on the Wolves because of how young they are. This pick will be traded for Turner, or traded for a wing that can create.

.

Favors to the nets OK, johnson to the wolves same thing, wolves have scoring and rebounding bigs, they need inside D, cousins is not the answer.
Kings are soft in the paint, cousins fits well.
Warriors need a finesse big, don't need aminu when u got wright-randolph as combos, monroe makes sense, but nellie is master in nonsense, he will shock the world by taking another SG, james anderson is the man....LOL.
Pistons need size not another forward-combo forward, monroe if avalaible if it's not the case, Aldrich(really high for him but it's a team need).
So Aminu to the clipps...

youre asking if fans have

youre asking if fans have information about nba teams?..come on you know the answer to that. none of us are in the war room with the decision makers. as far as opinions though i could see cousins dropping to 5th because of how many other good players are out there and the issues people keep talking aboutr( which i think are overblown). And you will hear alot of bad things about cousins from a couple of teams that will want him to drop. if anyone has had one issue with something and is very talented then teams will put the word out there that the guy is the worst head case ever just so that player will drop to them. i dont like monroe to the pistons because villanuiva is kinda the same type nonpower player. then again you have to draft the best player avaliable sometimes.

Idont agree the warriors need a finesse big they need more of a power big. and they will prob trade randolph since he hasnt really gotten much better from year one to year two.

@ stanford hoops:ok I've

@ stanford hoops:ok I've asked the question in a stupid way I admit it lol,what I mean has anybody read an article that makes some sense about the pick of any of those teams
anyway I do agree with most of what you have said
and germuk:I am actually one of his biggest fans,some times I wish a miracle happens and my mavs find a way to trade for him (ok,can't I dream?)this why I am surprised
since the lottery he is suddenly the 5th pick rather than the 3rd!!! and I can't help but wondering

I like Turner but to be honest with Favors is probably the best fit for NJ.

I doubt Philly takes Cousins unless he has some super duper work out for them because Turner just seems like the best pick and has some much hype over him but I could see Philly going both ways but I have Cousins going 5 to Sac. NJ getting Favors should work out. Favors could be a Dwight Howard type in 2 years.

I have Golden State going

I have Golden State going Euro. This guy is the only foreign player that should get picked in the 1st round unless that french player moves up. I think he would be a great fit for GSW who like to run and they like Shooters. They have gone European in a lot of their drafts. If they go big though I think Whiteside, Alrich, or even Orton falls here and Donatas goes to Houston.

I think there is no way Minny

I think there is no way Minny leaves this draft without Wall or Turner (much more probable being Turner). Kahn wants a potential franchise player now (he's stated that for sometime). We have a ton of picks and other quality players to trade (including rights to Rubio). Supposedly, Turner is not a good fit for Philly, so I think Kahn is going to be very aggressive in moving up in the draft. He won't just settle for Johnson IMO.

Kahn will never take Wes

Kahn will never take Wes Johnson, guaranteed, if somehow they're not able to trade for Turner or draft Favors they will trade Cousins to the highest bidder, unless Cousins proves he doesn't have mental issues.

From what I've read, Kahn

From what I've read, Kahn isn't really high on Cousins. He likes Johnson, but isn't going crazy about Johnson and Brewer on the floor together. Neither player can create any offense.

I agree with the four posts above. I expect Minnesota to find a way to move up and get Turner. He's the player they need.

Wes Johnson

Wes Johnson is probably the perfect pick for Golden State because he can shoot and Curry is going to be a great playmaker this year or next, and he is athletic which fits Don Nelson (who should leave if the team will go somewhere) run-and-gun style. They could possibly have a starting five like this:

C: Andris Biedrins
PF: Anthony Randolph or Ronny Turiaf
SF: Wes Johnson
SG: Monta Ellis
PG: Stephen Curry

This would be a very athletic starting 5 except for Biedrins and decent defensively (if they ever play some D) , since Biedrins is a very good rebounder and Randolph is an excellent shot-blocker.

Johnson

Isn't Johnson a better shooting, less defensive Brewer?

Minny needs a SG. They need to be "Turner or Bust". Trade the #4 pick and something with a pulse for that #2 pick. Or trade down, get some decent free agents and draft Paul George in the teens.

If It is Turner or bust then

If It is Turner or bust then they better prepare for bust,IT ISN'T THEIR CHOICE,the Sixers will never trade the pick,the fans would kill them for that
they have already started making videos for him,even Turner realize that,Some one told me he twitted :Sorry Wolves fans
I've no twitter so someone better confirm that btw

and yes I am not convinced that Wes Johnson a top 4 pick and this is why I made the thread,so what is the options?trading the pick?
I really hope Kahn makes the right choice and draft Cousins,I do like the Wolves and hope they will find their Franchise player in this draft
