With Johnson going to the Nets where will Favors fall?
With Jersey reportedly taking Johnson at 3, the real question is where will Favors fall. Will Wolves take him at four and deal either love or Jefferson, or will they take Cousins instead, and deal either Jefferson or Love? If wolves take cousins, will the Kings take him and deal Thompson or Landry or will they try and go back to the old days and take Monroe? If Favors is still available at 6, will the Warriors take him and deal Randolph or move Randolph to the 3? Or will he by some miracle still be available by 7th pick and Detroit realizes they can't pass up on him? This draft is going to get very interesting starting at the 4th pick.
Things are really shaking up, I think if Johnson goes to New Jersey then Minnesota takes Favors, I think the Kings still take Cousins and I've heard the Warriors are high on Epke Udoh and could pass on Greg Monroe to take him. That could mean Monroe could fall into Detroit's lap at 7 which they'd be thrilled about and I've said all along Monroe would be a great fit in Detroit with his post passing, but he may not be the tough defender and rebounder Dumars wants in the post.
I am hearing that Favors might actually go 2nd overall ahead of Turner...but to me it is really stupid to pass on Cousins.
So who do wolves deal JoeWolf, Love or Jefferson? Favors will not fit on their roster if they don't. I think Aminu will go to the Warriors because of the Maggette trade. Which means that Monroe would still fall into the Pistons laps. Any other thoughts on where Favors will fall?
Cousins said he doesn't want to play in Minnesota and with his maturity I think it would be a bad idea to draft a guy that doesn't want to play there. I see Favors going to Minnesota if Johnson goes to the Nets and then Cousins to the Kings.
Wolves would love that Jordan, but I doubt it will happen. I mean have you not heard that Sixers have pretty much been decided on Turner all along and are planning on dealing Iggy. Its all over their website, all over here, all over everywhere. Sixers are drafting Turner no doubt. I still think Favors will fall to 4, 5, 6 or 7. Where, who knows?
I think they'll eventualyl deal Jefferson, but he'll continue to play out of position at center and Favors would come off the bench to spell Love. Thats what I think at least.
I think the Kings would still take Monroe or Cousins if Favors was on the board, insider said that Golden State is either going to go with Udoh or Monroe at this point. I would think the furthest Favors could fall is to #7 (Detroit would be thrilled to get him there) but I really think the Wolves take him as the best player on the board. We saw how little Kaun cares about drafting position needs last year, lol
if nets take favors i think he can drop to #7 to the pistons maybe...cuz the wolves would probably take cousins im guessing....kings would take monroe...GS im not too sure maybe aminu becuase of the magette trade...and then pistons cud take favors....that wud be a steal lol damn..
Yea, malikballer, it may be a steal based on Favors potentially going 3rd, but in all actuality, its probably where he should end up @ 7th
