Are they lottery? I will break down the top 15 picks with their team to see the most likely destinations.
1 Was They are picking John Wall most likely
2 Philly They are looking at Cousins, Favors, and Turner here
3 NJ They are going to take Turner or best available big man
4 Minn They are hoping to move up and take Turner
5. Sac They are pretty set at small forward and already have a finesse big man in Hawes
6 GSW The could possibly take either or but it would appear to only be for depth which may be too high for them to take here
7 Det They picked up some nice rookies at the 3 and 4 position but could maybe take another if it is a high upside pick
8 LAC Babbitt could possibly go here and combine with Griffin at the Forward spots with both being versatile
9 Utah I really see them going for a big man and Babbitt could be a Sloan guy but I think they go Alrich or best available big
10 Indiana They were Interested in Hayward but Babbitt could be better fit to them even though they have people at the 4 and 5 but maybe Babbitt replaces Murphy who will be traded
11 New Orleans They could possibly take both as they have need at the 3 and 4 but unless they really fall in love with Babbitt and think he can play small forward for them I dont see it happening
12 Memphis With the trouble with Randolph and uncertainty with Gay Babbitt could see his name here
13 Toronto I dont see it happening here but maybe if Turk leaves they need someone to fill that position
14 Houston They are deep at the 3 spot and have Hill at the four, Hill will probably be a bench player but they are more likely to resign Scola than to draft another perimeter type 4
15 Milwaukee Babbitt could work here and maybe Hayward
Their best shot of going in the Top 10 are to the Jazz, Clippers, or Pacers.
It appears so
I think they are pretty well a lock for the lottery I have Babbitt going to New Orleans and Hayward going to Toronto in my mock. I saw on espn that Turkoglu would like to be traded.
