Why cant anybody understand

Why cant anybody understand that Jennings can/will fall. I'd love for the Knicks to take a chance on him. But hes a big chance. He's 170 and 6'1". He has alot of talent but he hasnt proven anything over Evans, Curry, or Flynn. You have to think like an NBA GM, not a guy that watches youtube videos. In a mock its your predictions of what the GMs will do. Not what you would do.

Yep

I haven't heard of any team in the lottery who has expressed much interest in Jennings. If he does go lottery Golden State, New York and Pheonix make the most sense.

How Jennings could fall.

Griffin, Rubio, Evans, Harden, Thabeet, Curry, Hill and supposedly Johnson are all a lock for the top 10. T-Will is definitely gone by 12. #11 is between T-Will, Henderson and Hansbrough. Golden State has assured Ellis they wont take a point. That pretty much leaves only #8 Knicks, #10 Bucks, #13 Pacers, and #14 Suns as possible suitors for Jennings in the lottery.
Derozan, Flynn, Henderson, Clark, Holiday, Lawson, and Jennings in the mix for 4 spots.

1-7 Griffin, Rubio, Evans, Harden, Thabeet, Curry, Hill

8 The Knicks are hoping someone slips and have Jennings at #9 at the highest on their big board.

9 Johnson

10 Milwaukee is making trades to ensure they can re-sign Sessions.

11 T-Will, Henderson, or Hansbrough

12 T-Will or Henderson

13 The Pacers like to draft players that they think can contribute right away.

14 The Suns are Jennings best chance but they are said to be very interested in Clark.

15 Then comes Detroit who want Daye or Mullens.

16 Then Chicago who already has Rose and Hinrich.

17 Jennings resembles Louis for Philly and they see themselves as contenders so they want an instant contributor(Maynor).

18 Minnesota probably already got a point at 5 or 6. Interest in Daye or Mullens

19 Atlanta is a possibility but Teague and Lawson most likely still available

20 Not a Jazz kind of player

21 NO needs help on the wing

22 Rodriguez, Blake, Bayless on roster. Possibility.

And thats how Brandon Jennings could fall. One of the questionable teams could take him as BPA 8, 10, 13, 14, 17, 18, 19, 22

i agree with knicksfreak but

i agree with knicksfreak but don´t think he will slip past 20. for some teams like chicago he won´t make sence in the second round but i think some team will fall in love with his talent in the top 20. he is just to talented and i think at some point it doesn´t matter he is not a jazz type of player at 20. the jazz could use a back up and with his talent i think they will be happy with takting him if he falls to them. i also think that if he slips someone may take him just to make a trade...
i like him being taken by the knicks but my favorite scenario would be hill at 8 and then make a trade for jennings if he falls.

I was just fantasizing about

I was just fantasizing about Hill falling to 8 and us being able to get another pick and steal him later on. That would be awesome. If the Darko deal comes through it would make Lee expendable in a sign and trade. Darko and Hill is an exciting young frontcourt.

Floor/Ceiling

I think all the lottery teams have decided to let him go, although that could be a smokescreen & he goes at 8 or 10. But I really believe his floor starts at 14 with Phoenix. If Earl Clark is available, they probably pass. If that happens, unless Portland trades up with Chicago to get him, the Sixers will take him only if Teague is off the board. I would expect Atlanta to take him at 19 if he's there - but you never know with them, they could grab Maynor over him if he's there. I'm guessing the absolute worst case is Dallas at 24. He looks like he's pretty clearly dropped because of risk & time it will take to develop - but whoever rolls the dice on him gets a guy with unlimited potential for sure. Lots of doubt as to whether he ever fulfills it though. I think it was a good move to pull him from the green room either way - why subject yourself to that if you suspect it's coming?

lol

Of course, as soon as I write that...I read that the Bucks are looking at him hard at 10.

But I still believe that if Flynn is there, they won't pass on him just to roll the dice on Jennings.

last thought

All I'm going to say is that any team that takes him had better have a built-in support system waiting for him there. Whether it is vets or coaches or whatever, they need to make sure he's got people he can turn to, because if he's left to founder if he doesn't succeed right away, I could see this guy potentially becoming a real nightmare in the locker room. Best to head that headache off at the pass & if you're going to take a guy like this, do it with both eyes open & a realistic expectation of what to expect from him over his first few years. If a team handles him right, potential jackpot. If they don't, potential nightmare.
