Tpups

For the Timberwolves I am hoping for the Cavs to try to max the value they can get with 1 and 4 and take Derrick Williams at 1 and then Brandon Knight/Kemba Walker at 4.

That way the Timbewolves can take Kyrie Irving...forever putting to rest the Rubio in MN BS.

Id be happy if Toronto got

Id be happy if Toronto got Brandon Knight given their position. If he is already taken, I wouldn't mind looking into maybe getting Kawhi Leonard.

As a Knick fan, with the 17th

As a Knick fan, with the 17th pick, i've narrowed my list down to my Fav7

based on who NBADraft.Nets mock says will be available...

Marshon Brooks, Tyler Honeycutt, Kenneth Faried, Jordan Hamilton, Josh Selby, Tobias Harris, and Darrius Morris

I like Chris Singleton too, but I dont see Mike DAntoni play him, so I left him out..

I agree w/ Sport Tears

As a Wolves fan I want:

1) Kyrie Irving

2) Trade Rubio. Preferably, work out a deal with the Clips to get our pick back fo next year.

3) Clear up the logjam at SF/PF.

4) Get a real SG.

I'm a Clippers fan so no 1st

I'm a Clippers fan so no 1st round picks for us but I would be happy with them getting Keith Benson or another established college player instead of some project or some guy that is going to stay in Europe for the next couple years.

The Wizards

At the 6th pick i know the Wizards really need some physical presence in our front court. Most likely Enes Kanter will not drop that low so I have no problem with trying to get Jan Vesely, who isnt the most physical prospect, but he is athletic and versatile and can match great with John Wall.

Clippers

Even though they would of never gone from 6 to 1 if they kept their pick, in theory the Clippers could be taking Kyrie Irving this year to pair with Gordon and the back court and make a rediculous combo of Irving and Griffin.

Suns

As a Suns fan i would like:

Kemba- if he somehow slips

Darius Morris- Somewhat of a stretch but I think could flourish in our system

Trey Thompkins- Also a stretch but we could use the size

Kenneth Faried- Nothing translates better to the NBA from college game than rebounding

Alec Burks - Vince should be gone

What the suns will probably do because they hate me:

Jimmer

Donatas Motiejunas- we already have a big guy who shoots too much and can't rebound or play defense (Channing)

One of the Morris Twins

Trade the pick for cash (most likely knowing Sarver)

Washington Wizards fan The

Washington Wizards fan

The player I want at 6 is Tristan Thompson. Forget Andray Blatche. He is absolute garbage. Whatever stats he may have put up the last couple years does not matter to me. I've watched him play enough times to see his lack of effort, hustle and poor decision making.

It's time to replace this fool with some young blood. Thompson looks like he has a lot of potential offensively, and a PF with a nice offensive game would fit perfectly with what the Wizards already have. The Wiz really only have two players who are true starters in the NBA- Wall and McGee- a young PG who could develop into a great player and a mamoth young defensive center. Pair this combo with Thompson and now you've got something to build around.

Draft an NBA ready swingman later in the 1st round. Singleton, Honeycut, Klay Thompson, etc. Someone who can at least crack the rotation and have an immediate impact.

The Wizards aren't going to make the playoffs in the next couple years but with adding a player like Tristan Thompson, whose game compliments Wall and McGee, they will have aquired a solid trio of young players they can build around.

As a Grizzlies fan I really

As a Grizzlies fan I really want Oklahoma City, Dallas, LA, the Spurs, Clippers and every other Western Conference team to really screw up.

I would want us to take Skeen if he is there. He would give us a 3 point shooter which we need and depth up front which we also need. The key for the Grizzlies though is to resign Gasol, keep OJ Mayo, and get Shane Battier on a cheap contract. I would also resign Haddadi for a reasonable amount of money. Xavier Henry is a wildcard. He didn't play much last year due to injuries and when he did play he didn't shoot well at all. If he can turn it around he could be the long range sniper we need. If not, he will be another Grizzlies wing player who can't shoot. So if he isn't gonna work out we should trade him for another big man and a 2nd round pick. If we could get Josh McRoberts and their second round pick (42 I think) for Xavier Henry and our second round pick (49) then I would do it. Next year: start Rudy Gay and bring OJ Mayo off the bench. Starters: Conley, Tony Allen, Rudy Gay, Z Bo, Marc Gasol. Bench: Vazquez, OJ Mayo, Battier, Darrell Arthur, McRoberts, Sam Young, and Hamed Haddadi. I like Hamed as backup center, but I think that Battier, McRoberts and Arthur would be fine as a second unit up front. Not as big, but faster. GV and OJ offers decent size and ball handling in the backcourt. Then draft a shooter at 42 and maybe pick up a free agent point guard. ... not sure we can trade Xavier Henry for an elite shooter like Kyle Korver or JJ Reddick...

I like our core of Z Bo, Gasol, Rudy Gay, Conley, Tony Allen, OJ Mayo, and Darrell Arthur. I think that Shane Battier would be a great backup small forward. GV is decent and I think we should keep either Sam Young or Xavier Henry. I like Sam Young because he is cheaper and more explosive. Henry might have more trade value even though he couldn't really shoot as a rookie.

If we can draft Skeen then we don't really need to trade for a guy like McRoberts and we can trade either Sam Young or Xavier Henry for a veteran point guard.

As a Wizards fan, I would

As a Wizards fan, I would pick BPA when we pick. I would LOVE to get Enes Kanter, but I doubt he falls to 6. But DX has him falling all the way to #8, so I guess there's a chance.

If he doesn't fall 3 other players I'm intrigued with are Jan Vesely, Kawhi Leonard, and Bismack Biyombo, though if I had to choose one out of those three, it would probably be Biyombo.

WizardOfOz- i'll flip out if the Wizards draft Biyombo at 6. That pick makes no sense. Why draft a big man with zero offensive game when they already have McGee.

For the Bobcats

Im a Bulls fan but as a Bobcat season ticket holder I want them to grab Jonas Valanciunas with the 9th pick if he is still there. I dont think there is a PG or SG in this draft at the Bobcats picks that is worth taking to replace Augustine or Henderson, who still have much more room to improve their game. I feel Jonas is going to be not a great center in this league, but I feel he will be better than half the starting centers in the league. That being said he would be a huge upgrade over Kwame Brown and be a nice young center that would help this team rebuild.

If Jonas is off the board I want the Bobcats to target one of the Morris Twins. This team is in desperate need of big men, and more particularly scoring. I feel Stephen Jacksons days left in Charlotte are numbered and Marcus could help the Bobcat's desperate need for scoring and Markieff would be a nice young defensive power forward that I think could play major minutes and contribute a lot his first year.

For the 20th pick I have no idea who to target. I think this pick should be used either on the best talent available, especially if a player slides in the draft. If a Morris is there (unlikely) I say thats a must grab. But who knows the Bobcats screwed themselves over by taking Alexis Ajinca over Darrell Arthur, and they could be dumb enough to do something like that again. Im not a believer that people this low in this weak draft will contribute much if anything. Other players I wouldnt mind grabbing if they fell would be Donatas Montiejunas or Jimmer just because it would be fun as hell to yell Jimmer everytime he launches 40 foot shots.

As a Hawks fan it's difficult

As a Hawks fan it's difficult predicting players as our #1 need center, you won't find anyone who will make the roster at 48. We have guys like Zaza, Jason Collins, Etan, Josh Powell etc, we don't just need a body we need a true starting center but that won't be had in the draft. Our #2 need or #1 in my book is a starting SF but again things look bleak in the draft. So because of that I'd like to target a player who can actually contribute as a role player at 48. A combo guard would be nice so we don't have to re-sign Jamal Crawford. Guys like Goudelock, Jenkins, and E'twuan Moore would be nice. Local boy Shumpert would be nice as well but he's unlikely to be there at 48. As for other role players Jamie Skeen would be nice as he can play as a stretch 4, a bit undersized though for an already smallish front line. Someone like Jimmy Butler would be nice as he can defend.

Bucks

I am probably the only Milwaukee Bucks fan on this sight and i would love to get Jan Vesley. It seems like a a strech on this sight but Ford has him going to 11 so I don't think it is all that unrealistic. If we can't get Vesley and nobody else really falls, i don't care who it is as long as we don't take Jimmer.

Houston Rockets We have a

Houston Rockets

We have a very young team and the only reason we didn't make the playoffs, is because we're in the West. That said, I think we can take a chance at this point. Go for a big man that can pan out and be successful or a complete bust. Someone who can replace Yao now that his career is pretty much over.

Guys on my wish list for the 14th pick

  • Bismack Biyombo
  • Jonas Valanciunas
  • Tristan Thompson

Guys on my wish list for the 23rd pick:

  • Lucas Nogueria
  • Davis Bertans
  • Tobias Harris

Guys on my wishlist for the 38th pick:

  • Malcolm Lee
  • Reggie Jackson

So pretty much come out with Bismack Biyombo, Lucas Nogueria, and Malcolm Lee.

"WizardOfOz- i'll flip out if

"WizardOfOz- i'll flip out if the Wizards draft Biyombo at 6. That pick makes no sense. Why draft a big man with zero offensive game when they already have McGee."

We need to change the culture of this team. While McGee has the potential to be a great defender, he's not there yet. I'm tired of our bigs letting the opposing team get in the paint whenever they want. We need more defense and toughness, and Biyombo has that. He can play PF/C, and while he may never be a good offensive player, he will be a force in the paint and a shot-blocking monster.

And he would also be insurance for McGee. I really like McGee and think he has the potential to develop into a very good player, on offense and defense, but people question wheter he'll ever reach that potential. If that were to happen, We would still has Biyombo, who I think has great potential.

Jazz: Derrick Williams and who knows at 12

Wow I'm surprised nothing has been mentioned about the Jazz yet considering all the Jazz fans that are on this site. (Then again they do pretty much have thier own forum...)

For the Jazz I would like them to select Derrick Williams, because I am pretty sure that Irving and Kanter will go before the 3rd pick. I love Derrick Williams, and I would love to root for another D-will. But if Irving or Kanter do slip and one of them is available at 3 of course the Jazz should go for them instead.

At 12, I'm not really quite sure where to go. There are a myriad of options running through my head. I wouldn't mind the Jazz trading this pick, and in reality I'd be fine with just about anybody except for Bismack and Motiejunas. But if you really want an order here it is:

  1. Kawhi Leonard
  2. Alec Burks
  3. Jimmer
  4. Jordan Hamilton
  5. Tobias Harris

Oz, he would be a reach at #6

Oz, he would be a reach at #6 but don't you feel like Markieff is exactly the type of player the Wizards need? tough inside, will set great picks for Wall and has some face up ability to knock down a mid range jumper. Biggest thing is he won't get pushed around like Mcgee or give zero effort like Blatche. He's a little shoter than you'd like but with Mcgee blocking shots he'd be fine. BTW Oz what are your thoughts on Seraphin? From what I saw last year he's increidbly raw offensively but he is strong inside and sets nice picks. I'd actually like to see Booker grab a starting role from Blatche. His screens are monsterous and he really hits the offensive glass hard. Unfortunately bigger and taller guys get shots over him easy plus while he has great form his jumper is inefficient.

He would be a reach at 6, but if all the other guys I mentioned aren't available at #6, I MIGHT consider taking him. We lacks shooters and he's a reliable spot-up shooter and will be a great floor spacer. I don't like the idea of picking him at #6, but I would take him at #18, even though I doubt he falls that far.

I like Seraphin an think he has good potential. He's tough and physical. And even though he's very raw, he shows nice touch. He looked out of shape last season though. It was probably because of the knee injury he suffered before the season, which prevented him from working out most of the offseason, but it even looked like he got fatter as the season went on. He even admitted to eating too much junk after the season. Another thing is the language barrier. He probably had a tough time communicating to his teammates because his English isn't very good, but he said he's been working on it. And it seems like the organization wants him to be a C. He plays like a C, but has the height of a PF, so I don't know what his position is going to be in the long haul.

I LOVE Booker. I thought he was a reach when we traded up to get him, but he ended up being a steal. He's very athletic, very physical, and like you said, sets MONSTROUS picks. And he's probably the only big on our team that consistently boxes out. He has a never ending motor. But some Wiz fans have te idea that he can play SF, but I think otherwise. He's shown NO skills that indicate that he can play SF. No handle and no jumpshot. He's a PF through and through, even though he should be able to guard some SF's.

And you probably disagree with me, but I'm a big fan of Blatche. I thought he was going to have a monster season this year, but he broke his foot in the summer which ended up ruining his season. But I wouldn't trade him like some Wiz fans have asked for. I still say it and I have no doubt that he will prove my next statement. I think he is arguably the most complete big in the league. I think no other guy has his combination of handles, low post moves, soft J, and passing ability. I think his D is also underrated when healthy. Everyone's talking about Dirk being this matchup nightmare. I think Dray is the perfect guy to matchup against him. If he's stays healthy next season, he's gonna be a beast!

I have so many teams I like

I have so many teams I like here are mine

Boston- Jordan Williams since they traded Kendrick Perkins and I heard that Glen Davis isn't happy about not starting. He is a 6'10 PF who I think would be nice in there frontcourt to have

Chicago- 28 th and 30th- I'm thinking Marshon Brooks to possibly help at SG and I'm leaning towards Shelvin Mack of Butler to be a 3rd string or 2nd string if Rose or Watson goes down.

Dallas - Trey Thompkins if he's still on the board if not Jordan Williams. They need a backup PF in case Dirk goes down with injury next years

Oklahoma City- any decent small forward to back up durant.

Minnesota- Williams or Irving and then Singleton with the next pick.

Cleveland- Irving or Williams first and then Kanter or Knight

Spurs

For the spurs with 29th and 59th pick, I don't care (considering the Spurs draft the best in late round situations). But perhaps a wing defender at the 2 and/or 3 that will do the dirty work and shoot from the corner a la Bruce Bowen.

Sixers

This pick is almost fool proof for Stefanski! If he doesn't draft a PF (anyone like JaJuan Johnson, Trey Thompkins, Marcus or Markieff Morris, Dontas if he's there, etc etc...) I would literally take any power forward with potential who can give us a solid 20 mins a night and contribute. My choice is JaJuan Johnson but I also would pick a Morris twin if they are available.

If they take another WING, I will flip! Thad Young and Turner are still enough, even if they trade Iggy. Big man is our number 1 priority

I am a Warriors fan and I ideally want Enes Kanter, but that is not going to happen. I would also like Jonas Valencias, but he probably wont slide that far. Jan Vesly seems interesting, A 6'11 small foward is odd but nice. However knowing the Warriors they will stretch him to the 4 or 5, so Im just hoping for the best.

I want the Charlotte bobcats to get

Tristan Thompson and Jordan hamilton. That way Tyrus can start and they get a capable project to be the future starter. (also getting rid of Boris who has underacheived) And hamilton with MJ in his ear i feel this kid could be very good. With his size he can do damage he just needs to become a more consistent shooter.

royke927

I dont know man do you think they are just going to go with Kwame as there center and no depth? Our front court is horrible. Gerald Henderson I feel showed enough at the end of the season that he can start next year, I feel that maybe we should draft eith Thomas or Hamilton if we were planning on trading Stephen Jackson soon, but I think were better off trusting Henderson with starting and try and replace Kwame, or at least get some depth because Diaw and Thomas is not goint to cut it for next season.

WizardofOz- We simply

WizardofOz- We simply disagree on two things...

1. Bismack Biyambo is a legit draft prospect- I don't see it

2. Andray Blatche will develop into a great player- I disagree not because of his skills. All the skills you mentioned are accurate. He can dribble, pass, shoot, even play a little defense at times. But i wonder how many Wiz games you watched last season. When i watch Blatche play it makes me mad. He plays with no passion, energy or hustle, and the number of 20 footer bricks he threw up was rediculous. He shot 44% last year and i wonder what percentage he shot from 18+ feet. My guess is thats probably around the high 30's %. I used to be a huge Blatche fan because he has rare skills for a big man. But I'm now convinced he will never be a great player, at least not for the Wizards. It's time to cut him loose. Trade him for whatever we can get because in my eyes it will be addition by subtraction.

As far as Biyombo is concerned, I haven't seen a lot of tape on him, but what I have seen has not impressed me at all. His game is a dime a dozen these days- a big guy with long arms who can potentially be a good shot blocker. Year after year there are prospects that fit this same description, many don't pan out. In fact, the NBA is changing to where now big men are expected to be able to dribble, pass and stick jumpers. Biyombo can't do any of these things. To top it all off there is speculation that he's not actually 18 but could be 21 or older. There must be something about Biyombo I've missed because I am not buying in at all.
