Revised Mock with Comments/Comparisons
Good mock mate.
Sounds like you're high on McDermott at 7, and low on Stauskas at 29.
I personally don't like it..
Andrew Wiggins-Gerald Green is his worst worst worst case scenario I think..
Philly already showed Wiggins is #1 choice on their board and at number two he would be a lock..
Doug at 7, meeeh
i like Willie Cauley-Stein at #16, a lot under rank him, he brings great defense and energy, has potential to improve...
Come on Windy. Get Payne above Cauley Stein. I want Payne on the Bulls along with LaVine. Thats my dream scenario.
I disagree about Wiggins, he did show he had "beast mode" with the back to back 41 and 30 pt games. Bill Self took the beast mode away from him, much like Coach K did with Parker.
I think you could flip flop Randle and Exum if you were going by team needs. Exum would make more sense in Utah, and Randle in Boston. Utah has to give Kanter/Favors more time, and I think Favors has been far more consistent and dominant than Kanter has, I dont think Utah would add another big man this early.
Overall its a good mock though.
If you really pay close attention I took good care of Utah with this Mock. No need to take Exum when they have Burke to run the 1 and still have Burks to play both Guard spots. With their 2nd pick I addressed the 2-Guard spot just in case Hayward does not return. All in all you just cannot pass up on Randle in that situation.
No one came up with one I think , but how about Dr J for Wiggins NBA comparison ?
I know I talking about a legend but I believe it fits pretty well , almost exact same body type (long, thin , 7' foot wingspan , around 6"8) , same crazy athleticism , both good all around players , both good team players , very unselfish with great team spirit ...
I don't know , I am dead wrong ? ^^
I also thought of clyde the glide for pretty much the same reasons ...
I can tell you don't watch the Grizzlies we have a decent back up in Calathes and hell we have Beno Udrih too. The Grizz will be looking for a big or a wing player come draft time, not a PG.
I contemplated on a wing because of the Prince situation around the trade deadline. I've did away with the Grizz for some time but I am aware of Calathes, just did not know if they were going to continue to utilize him as a PG.
Wiggins = Tracy McGrady
You seem pretty high on James Young, too. I think Willie Cauley-Stein would get drafted before him, but where you have those guys projected is pretty realistic in my opinion. #7 for McDermott might be a stretch, but I totally think he's worth the pick (even though NBA teams might not think so).
You foresee Vonleh sliding in the draft during workouts. Interesting.
Young's upside is tremendous and the way he produced right away, while it took time for the other Fr. not named Randle to come along speaks volumes to me. I feel WCS is right where he should be not too high not too low.
So the Pistons exchange a PG who can mildly shoot for a 6'9" PG who flat can't shoot at all. I hate that everyone one here thinks they watch every Pistons game. Its getting annoying. Just repeating what they hear on here.
I wasn't going to entertain this but after reading it over and over, leads me to ask you what do you expect? BTW I hope you are a "Bad Boy's Piston" the way you are calling everyone else out.
the marcus smart comparison looks familiar, oh wait that's right, I put that up on 3/18/14.
heres the proof.
What are you trying to prove to me?
I personally didn't like the mock at all....
Exum to the Celtics at 4 when they already have Rondo? Unless they get rid of there star player/all star Exum would get any PT at point and you would have a 3 guard rotation of guys who can't shoot Rondo,Bradley, and Exum.
Then you had McDermot going 7th to the kings?! Have we not seen what has happened to guys like him named Adam Morrison and Jimmer. Not saying he will flame out like them but those guys haven't made drafting shooters who dominated the NCAA in the lotto look that good.
And lastly I read "Vonleh coming in can bump Faried down to the 3 in certain sitautions" and that's just about where I stopped.
I think your predictions are reasonable. Your comparisons are way off... Cauley Stein being compared to Robin Lopez?
