Small Mock draft based on needs
Kings- Griffin(no brainer)
Wizards- Jordan Hill(a bit high but they've need a Power Forward since Webber)
Clippers- Thabeet(they need someone to play defense who is young)
Memphis- Aminu(young player who can grow into a Power forward)
T'wolves- James Harden(if Foye really doesn't have a position get a SG)
Thunder- Brackins(talented team can really add any piece)
Warriors- Brandon Jennings(get a PG to run with Ellis)
Raptors- Gerald Henderson(they need a swingman to break down a defense)
Knicks- Budinger(with Gallinari fragile they need an athletic shooter)
Pacers- Eric maynor(similar to Mark Jackson)
Ricky Rubio lack of jump shot will drop him.
As much as I don't like Rubio, I really doubt he will fall that far. Unfortunately I don't see him falling outside the top 5.
NY doesn't need Budinger they need a PG they better take Maynor and try and make trades on draft night because they need a lot, but a Pure PG is most important and a defensive minded Center def not another scoring guard or forward.
they have said ellis is the point they need a small forward who is a rebounder
Jump shot is something he could improve quickly. He is going a top 3 pick if he enters
Nateoak are you out of your mind?? Brandon Wright, Anthony Randolph.....BOTH SF!! And for sure Wright will bust, altho I still think Randolph has a spot in league because of his amazing rebounding and effort.
If Jamall Crawford isnt good enough for Golden State what makes Brandon Jennings a favorable guy in Don Nelsons system. They need a 4 badly. I'm ready to callv out Brandon Wright as a Bust and I think Anthony Randolph can play the 3 on that team.
What r u people talkin about randolph and wright r the 4's right now they dnt need a 4 they need a point guard 2 make there team go either n freeagency r the draft r a trade
Yeah lets call Brandan Wright a bust, a 21 year old kid in his 2nd year in the league. This guy wasn't a polished player coming into the league and if you thought he would be making a huge impact by his 2nd year you didn't see him play at North Carolina. Give him at least 2 or 3 more years before you call a young player like him a complete bust.
As far as the warriors draft needs, nobody really knows. If they feel comfortable with Ellis at the point then I'm sure they would go with a 2 guard or SF. They've drafted Wright and Randolh the past two drafts so Im sure they won't be looking for a 4.
I feel they could use Thabeet and with so many wing players maybe they could come up with a package that would give them a higher pick.Thabeet would be a good piece and they could rid themselves of the logjam at the wing.But if that longshot doesn't work they should go with the best player available or maybe try Aminu if he's out there at they're pick because most of the best players other than Griffin are similar to other guys on they're team.Jennings is different than what they have and Griffin is a beast.Aminu could be a very good combo forward that would give them different look than Randolph, if they pick him they should unload Wright.Harden is somewhat similar to the glut of wings they have but he would be a good pick because he's a gamer.Brackins reminds me somewhat of Wright as far as size and what he could bring to the Warriors.Henderson is a Maggette clone but very talented.Budinger could be a good piece that would give them the shooter that they have been looking for since drafted Bellini.But they do have Morrow and he was a steal.I feel they will get a good piece if they draft wisely.If I was picking and they picked in the correct order I think I would go with Jennings,but for him to play they would have to make a deal so Ellis can get some minutes at the 2 so they could play together at times.
I just was readin espn the mag and n the back the 3 seconds by ric bucher he said don nelson has expressed interest in makein louisville guard terrence williams his next point forward dnt know how true this is because that's a lil high 4 him 2 get drafted what do yall think?
