No way

If he somehow fell past 2, then someone would trade up with the Jazz to get him

He's much more likely to go

He's much more likely to go #1 than #4

Why are you comparing Derrick Williams to Orton and Whiteside?

There is no way Utah lets

There is no way Utah lets Williams go by, thats if Minnesota does. IF Utah get Williams they dont have to waste anymore money on AK.....to me that would be glorious!

1st Pick

I honestly think he'll go #1, because he has proven himself to be a dominate player. Kyrie Irving still has some showing off to do. As far as him falling to #4, no team would ever let that happen as he is arguably the best player in this year's draft class.

I got a feeling Williams is

I got a feeling Williams is gonna go #2, but Minnesota will end up trading that pick somewhere. As far as #4 goes, I have Enes Kanter going there on my mock draft.

Derrick Williams has a few

Derrick Williams has a few things working against him. Williams keeps saying he's a 3, but GM's and scouts are saying he's a 4 (identity crisises is sure way to ruin players development) and the guy only jumps off of both feet. The extra second it takes to set both feet to jump in huge in the NBA, if you can't jump off of one foot, then players struggle. I don't see the Jazz drafting him, (I've followed them my whole life, they draft guys to fit system over BPA). So I could see Jazz trading out of 3 if Williams falls to them for someone who wants him bad enough.

"I think it's still open,"

"I think it's still open," he said. "I think 1-2-3-4 is open. Could go any direction. Eye of the beholder, and what teams are there. It will be an exciting draft day, and it will be a lot of movement."

http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/draft2011/news/story?id=6623930

In radio interiews a lot of scouts have Williams lower on the draft. We'll see what happens on draft day, but cementing Williams at 1-2 isn't as sound as you would think if you consider past drafts like &$#%#&@!smakedyomumbro was trying to explain that in past drafts, players who were locks for lottery a few weeks before the draft had their position dramatically changed on draft day.

Nothing about Williams game says "small forward" like he is saying, he's a PF, so his attitude could drop him a bit as teams rarely have success with guys who play combo positions between 3/4.

Awesome: You have been

Awesome: You have been listening to David Locke about Williams jumping off 2 feet being a problem, to me thats a bunch of crap, basketball is a game that requires two foot jumping much more than one foot jumping and Williams can jump off one foot , he just prefers to jump off of two feet. Jumping off two feet gives you more power, balance and control. There are times when jumping off one leg is prefered but it's not a problem that Williams jumps off two feet most of the time. Jumping off one leg requires momentum, running etc, IMO two legged jumping is prefered in most basketball skills, (shooting, rebounding,etc ), I don't see where two footed jumping slows you down much at all, it gives you more power, explosion, balance and control.

Williams and Irving have been

Williams and Irving have been the consensus top two picks for a long time and if the T-Wolves did do a trade then I'd guess someone would look to move up to take Williams at 2 if we all assume that Cleveland take Irving at 1.

I'd guess that Cleveland will work out Williams with a view to taking him first even if it's virtually certain that they take Irving, if they did like him then they might look to try and move up and get him somehow.

Personally I don't see Williams falling to 4 as it would need something fairly strange to happen and whilst Utah will probably take their chosen guy at 3, Kahn at the T-Wolves might just do something strange. If Cleveland could get Williams at 4 then they would be laughing.

its not likely but possible

if the cavs take irving at no 1 the wolves keep their pick and take kanter at 2 the jazz seem too be enamored with b knight so williams could slide too 4 like i said not likely but its possible

Like you said, possible but

Like you said, possible but not likely. If Kyrie goes #1; Kanter #2 and DW shows some ability to be a legit SF during team work out its possible the Jazz take him just based off potential. Especially if Jimmer shortens the gap between him and Knight somewhat and they feel good about him being there at 12. This all of course is if Minny goes Kanter at #2 which I really think they should do because there aren't many big men of his ability in or out of the league period and especially none on the trade market. His game I think translates to the league easily because he's capable and willing to take a beating down low, has fluid mechanics, good foot work, soft hands, has a good motor, pro experience, and an above average basketball IQ. People may be iffy because of his not playing last year, but he's long since dominated his age group in Europe creating a HS Lebron-esque gap between him and other top euro prospects his age. He's also proven himself against top american prospects in the summit, and at times he was considered Kentucky's best player on the practice floor by a mile.

MINNY

PG - Ricky Rubio
SG - Wes Johnson
SF - Mike Beasley
PF - Kevin Love
C - Enes Kanter
Bench
Johnny Flynn
Luke Ridnour
Wayne Ellington
Martell Webster
Anthony Tolliver
Darko Millicic
Nikola Pekovic

Tell me that wouldn't be a fun young talented team to watch although defense would be an issue. With so many youny assets though, maintaining cap flexibility and bringing in veterans and defensive help won't be hard either. Maybe Kahn is on to something after all.. or maybe he drafts Jereme Richmond #2.. never know.
