my mock draft

here is how I would do if it, if I were picking

1.LAC-Blake Griffen: he's sorta the best player......., and they can move one or two of thier bigs.
2.Mem-Ricky Rubio: they need a pf, but I don't think they want to take Hill here, they may look to trade this pick to Sac, Wash, or to anyteam wanting Rubio, or they may keep it, and trade conley and others for a big man.
3.OKC-Jordan Hill: 2nd best big in the draft, could play like Amare, provides inside scoring and rebounding
4.SAC-Brandon Jennings: they need a pg baddd, they want rubio, and they may trade up for him, but if not Jennings provides athletisim, and speed, 2nd most talented pg in the draft.
5.WSH-Hasheem Thabeet: Washington may look to trade out of here to get a vet to help them make the playoffs, but since Thabeet is here, he can give them a shot blocking, and defensive force, in which they need, they could look to take a guard like Harden, Derozen, and Evans.
6.Min-James Harden: crafty scorer, lost out on Mayo, and Roy in the past, they finally get a sg that can compliment big Al Jefferson
7.GS-Tyreke Evans: they do have Ellis, and Crawford, who can play both g postions, but Evans gives them size they need in the backcourt, Evans has the size and could devolpe into pg like a Baron Davis.
8.New York: DeMar DeRozan: I know everyone says Curry here, and New York is going after LeBron, but if I'm New York, I would stop banking on getting James, or Wade b/c it isn't very likely to get one of them. So instead, I draft DeRozan, who has superstar talent, he's they guy New York needs, a guy who can be the face of the franchise, he has as much upside as anyone in the draft, he fits the big market team.
9.Tor-Earl Clark: Toronto would love to have DeRozen, but instead they settle for Clark, who has they ability to play both forward spots, and could play some sg as well. He fits well into an up-tempo team like Toronto wants to be.
10.Mil-DeJuan Blair: Charlie Villinueve will not be back, and Sessions could still return, there a lot of pg's on the market, so I would take a big man to come into start, and give you some toughness, and size.
11.New Jersey-James Johnson: Dream come true for New Jersey, can play both forward spots, gives them a solid 3 option on the offensive end, and a versitle defender.
12.Cha-Gerald Henderson: Raja Bell doesn't have much left, and Cha needs scoring for that spot, Henderson gives you scoring, and will be part of a solid backourt with augisten, as they look to move Felton.
13.Ind-Stephen Curry: PG with great shooting skills, will make up for the Pacers lack of shooting in the backcourt.
14.Phx-Jonny Flynn: Great playmaker to replace Nash soon, will keep the Suns an up-tempo team, Budinger is also possible here.
15.Detriot-Jrue Holliday: PG with great all-around skills, and size, will allow Stuckey to move to they SG where he can score more
16.Chi-Gani Lawal: Chi-town has a glut of guards, and will prolly keep Gordon, even if they don't, Salmons can play there, and Deng can start at SF. Lawal brings more size, strength, and rebounding, a hard worker to help a team on the rise.
17.Phi-Wayne Ellington: Philly can't shoot for shit, Igudala needs to stay at the sf spot, and they need help with sg spot.
18.Min-Ty Lawson: Speedster to compliment Harden, to give the T'Wolves a good young pg.
19.Atl-Eric Maynor: Bibby may not return, Atlanta is a playoff team, and will need a guy to be ready to come in and start, Maynor gives them leadership, passing, and some scoring to help the Hawks get younger, while still improving in the east.
20.Utah-Chase Budinger- dream come true for Utah, a guy who can play sg and sf, gives Utah more scoring outside, a hard worker, who will fit the bill for Sloan.
21.New Orleans-Austin Daye: Paul needs help on the perimiter, Daye is a smooth outside-inside scorer, will be a great 3rd or 4th option with Paul to help him, needs to get bigger
22.Dallas-Jeff Teague- Kidd may return, even so, Kidd won't be there much longer, Teague is a steal here, a dynamic pg, can score in bunches, very fast and explosive.
23.Sac-Omri Casspi: Casspi can help do a little bit of everything, still young, and will have time to develope with Sacremento still being young and struggling.
24.Port-Derrick Brown: tough hard-nose guy, Port needs a tough sf, as Outlaw showed he is too weak sauce, he is another young guy to add their great young nucleus, Portland still needs a true pg, and may move this pick.
25.OKC-Marcus Thorton: Gives them a 3-point shooter, to come off the bench to help score.
26.Chi-Terrence Williams: Versitle player, can be great off the bench, another guard to add if Gordon is gone.
27.Mem-Tyler Hansbourogh: Tough player, works hard, wants to win, an energy guy to come off the bench.
28.Min-DeJaun Summers: another guy that has great talent, has an NBA ready body, will add versitly and scoring
29.LAL-Pat Mills-LA will look to go best available, pg is also the biggest need, will give them more depth, and could be the future starter for LA.
30.CLE-Sam Young: NBA ready, will come in and play a lot, hard worker,adds defense, and can give you some points.

No way Curry slips past 8th,

No way Curry slips past 8th, the Knicks will take him. No way Thabeet slips past 4. Any team that takes Hill over Thabeet is dumb. No way in hell Terrence Williams falls to 26th. Williams could be the best athlete in the draft. Other than that your mock looks pretty good.
