Mock Draft 3.0

http://www.nbadraft.net/nba_mock_drafts/28199/

1. Los Angeles Clippers- Blake Griffin

This is a lock.

2. Memphis Grizzlies- James Harden

If they keep this pick, it is either him or Curry. I am expecting them to trade it to either Minnesota, New York, or Portland, however, if I was Chris Wallace, I'd keep it and go Harden. He would be a great fit there, because he'd have a chance to contribute without taking shots away from Gay and Mayo.

3. OKC Thunder- Hasheem Thabeet

Curry, Harden, and Thabeet are in the mix, but it would be a big mistake to pass up on Thabeet. This is the perfect situation for him.

4. Sacramento Kings- Ricky Rubio

All the rumors that they might pass on him even if he’s available are bs. But, if he’s off the board, don’t expect them to trade up or down. They’ll sit at four and take either Flynn or Evans.

5. Washington Wizards- Stephen Curry

Not sure about this one, but they do need a 2 guard and he is probably bpa at this point. If not him, I expect it to be Hill.

6. Minnesota Timber Wolves- Tyreke Evans

This guy is a beast, I expect him to have a great career, and apparently Minnesota loves him. But if Curry is still on the board, I expect them to take him.

7. Golden State Warriors- Jordan Hill

This is the guy they want, they’ll be ecstatic if he falls to them. Also, this pick keeps Ellis happy, which is another plus.

8. New York Knicks- Jrue Holliday

I hear they really like him, but I think this would be a reach.

9. Totonto Raptors- DeMar DeRozan

If he wants to pick there it is a great pick. They need wing players.

10. Milwaukee Bucks- Johnny Flynn

They seem to love him, and there is no way Sessions resigns here, so he is the clear choice.

11. New Jersey Nets- Tyler Hansbrough

I don’t understand it, but he seems like the leading candidate to go here. Could be Derozan though if he is available.

12. Charlotte Bobcats- Gerald Henderson

He seems like he is their pick for sure.

13. Indiana Pacers- Brandon Jennings

They need a point guard, and he is probably the best one left at this point.

14. Phoenix Suns- Earl Clark

They need a three and someone to get the ball to Richardson and Amare. Clark could be both for them.

15. Detroit Pistons- BJ Mullens

They promised they’d take him if he was available.

16. Chicago Bulls- DeJaun Blair

They love him and would be very happy if he was available, nice fit here.

17. Philadelphia 76ers- Eric Maynor

Replacement for Miller, Williams can’t play the point.

18. Minnesota Timberwolves- Terrance Williams

I think his future is very bright. He has a great personality and attitude and he certainly has a love for the game. This would be a nice steal if he falls to 18.

19. Atlanta Hawks- Jeff Teague

Their point guard of the future. They still need to resign Bibby though, he (Teague) will need some time to grow.

20. Utah Jazz- James Johnson

They have no glaring needs, so it is best player available here.

21. New Orleans Hornets- Austin Daye

I don’t know about this one, but it would be a good upside pick at this point.

22. Dallas Mavericks- Ty Lawson

I’m not sure if he’ll slip this far, but it would be a great steal for Dallas if he did.

23. Sacramento Kings- Omri Cassippi

I expect this pick to be sold, but if not, he is the clear pick.

24. Portland Trailblazers- Victor Claver

They don’t need more young talent, so they can send him oversees for a few years and see how he develops.

25. Oklahoma City Thnder- Chase Budinger

Big fall here, but they need to surround Durant and Westbrook with shooters, this would be a nice steal.

26. Chicago Bulls- Wayne Ellington

A possible replacement for Gordon

27. Memphis Grizzlies- Sam Young

Very nice fit. I think he can help any team. You need guys like this to win.

28. Minnesota T’Wolves- Jonas Jerebko

They don’t want three rookies on the roster.

29. LA Lakers- Rodrigue Beaubois

GM said they are going foreign here.

30. Cleveland Cavaliers- Derrick Brown

I think this guy could thrive playing with Lebron, plus they need more wing players to match up with teams like Orlando.

Toronto

With all of the speculations about DeMar DeRozan being drafted by the Toronto Raptors, it was a given that something would be said about DeRozan not wanting to play for them.

But when he was up in Toronto earlier this past week for his individual workout, he told reporters and the raptors organization that he was hesitant before, but now once coming to Toronto and seeing what the organization is like, and what the city has to offer him. He said those previous comments have no value anymore. He himself said he would be glad to play for the Raptors, since the team's needs are exactly what he offers. Hence he will be given the most opportunity to play his style of game, as well as learn from Great coaches in Triano, English, and Ivaroni

Thank you

I hadn't heard that. I will adjust my draft accordingly.

I didn't make any huge changes, just swapped Clark and Derozan. So now Derozan to Toronto at #9 and Clark to Phoenix at #14.

only things.. i think

only things..
i think jennings, teague, flynn are too low. And if harden is a grizzlie, where does everyone play?

Other than that good mock, i like Daye at 21 and Beaubois at 29.

Harden

Can come off the bench. There is more then enough playing time for him, Mayo, and Conley. The Grizzlies have said that they like the idea of thet three man guard rotation.
