Rumors are starting to surface that Rubio won't play in Memphis or OKC but that doesn't affect my mock at this point. You'd have to expect Memphis to remain in control and at least use him as a bargaining chip.
1. Clippers - Blake Griffin
2. Grizzlies - Ricky Rubio
3. Thunder - Hasheem Thabeet
4. Kings - Jordan Hill
5. Wizards - James Harden
6. Timerwolves - Demar Derozan
7. Warriors - Brandon Jennings
8. Knicks - Stephen Curry
9. Raptors - Tyreke Evans
10. Bucks - DeJuan Blair

Also check out my team previews on the site. I've only released the first two so far but I plan to get 30 out if they start gathering some attention. Leave some comments on them if you like them or if you have any questions behind my reasoning.

Remember to leave a comment you don't actually have to sign up for anything. Just type your name in the comment field and you're all set. It doesn't require much work so if you have time I'd like to hear some thoughts.
I want to add some good comments to my mock and once it starts gathering attention I will.
Good job. I agree with almost all of your picks but comments would help some of us understand your reasoning. Blair might be a little high at 10.
i like this mock. i haven't read your team previews though but looking at your top 10, i think that could pretty much be it on draft day. I'd say Evans or Clark at 9. I'm not sure blair goes up that high and the bucks likes to play Mbah a Moute at the 4 so maybe they'd go for a Redd replacement (i'm thinking henderson). i'm not sure if indiana gets another pg. jack was huge for them and they still have ford. budinger or daye here would be good.
Thanks. I tried to make this mock as accurate as possible but it's tough because sometime a team will take a different player then you think they should. Some people base their mocks off who they actually think that team will take and some people base it off who they think the team should take.
There's some changes I might be making from 9-30 but I'm not sure yet. Version 2.0 might be out soon.
nice and simple layout to begin with.
And I think you did a good job with your mock...quite unique, but not so that its completely absurd.
Thanks cheese. I had the layout set up the night of the lottery and I entered my picks within the first hour the order was released. I've never considered it unique but maybe it is because in my first version I didn't know what teams were high on who and things like that.
GRIFFIN : 20ppg 12rpg. rubio: 15ppg 11aspg thabbet:9ppg 10rpg 3bpg hill: 14 PPG 1O RPG jennings :15ppg 8aspg
Ehhhhh I can't agree with you there. No one in this close is going to average 20 their rookie year.
Anyone see Lebron!?!?!?!?!?! Yes!!!!!!!!!
dwad said prime, not rookie season.
griffin in prime = 22ppg, 11 rbs, at least 1 trip to the finals.
Those predictions aren't bad if we're talking prime.
Thanks to those of you who left comments so far. The views have really increased since I posted the link here so I'll stay active on these forums all the way up until draft time. Keep the feedback and comments coming on the articles!
I like this mock. It is very sensible. But I do have one question. I looked at your link and I saw that you said the Suns might pick Maynor. Why not Lawson or Flynn? Also, I have one other question for you. Can you please tell me why Tyler Hansbrough isnt rated higher in the mocks? Thank you
Minnesota will not draft Harden or Derozan. They are going to play foye off the ball rather than on it. Jennings is the pick at 6. Evans just doesn't seem like a buck to me. Clark or Henderson fit the bill more to their style of play. Evans is as tough one to figure out. I think he just slips out of the lottery.
I like this mock. I agree im gonna change my mock once its true Rubio doesnt wanna go to OKC or MEM
Will jure be a top 5 pick.
i have him at 6 to minn
His stock is rising right now so I'll definitely have him higher in my updated mock. Six might be a stretch,
