My first mock (please comment)
everything looks good except for the mem/sac trade. I think the grizz will trade the 2nd pick for the 4th, 23rd AND garcia. i think the kings could easily makeup for garcia in this draft or through free agency. At this point, if okc don't select harden and they go for thabeet, fingers crossed, it would give hope for the grizz snatching harden. if the grizz get harden, they could trade conely away for a powerfoward. and then slide mayo to point guard, start harden at SG. i like conely, but if i can get harden and a few pieces out of this draft, garcia through a trade, and trade conely for an established powerfoward.....YAY.
i don't think hill will fall that far. i project between 4 and 6.
as a kings fan, i am perfectly content with giviing up 4, 23, and garcia to get rubio. also, i was wondering if the grizz would want evans or a power forward more, since the mock has the grizz getting evans.
grizzlies would want a powerfoward more. there's just a gaping hole there.
The draft is full of PGs. If the Kings can't get Rubio, they'd be foolish to give up the 4th and 23rd pick. They should just draft someone like Evans, Flynn, or Jennings at 4 and then get a forward like Brown, Summers, Young or Williams at 23. The combo of a guard at 4 and a forward at 23 will produce better outcomes than just Rubio will.
uh...if you had the 2nd pick..you can DRAFT rubio... I think he'll find a way through the contract mess. The kings need a franchise changing player. i'm not counting flynn or evans out...but i think there's more hope through rubio. no disrespect, i like the kings too.
Damion James is going back to school but I like it, some outside the box type picks. I think curry goes before 8 but not guaranteed.
I like your mock. Though I disagree that Hill will slip to ten. He will slip but not that far down. I also do not think the Kings will trade their pick. They need all the help they can get. Rubio or Harden would be a nice pick for them. I also just love your choice for the Jazz. Tyler Hansbrough would be an excellent fit for this team.

I disagree with the Sac-Mem Trade I dont think Phi would take Clark, they have Young
Overall, not bad
