New Jersey Nets- John Wall- You can trade Harris if the price is right but don't give him away because you have wall. If you have to play Harris and Wall at the 1 and 2(not the worst option in the world).
Minnesota Timberwolves- Wesley Johnson- He can play the 2 or 3, either way they could use an upgrade at both positions. Jefferson may not be a center but Love Jefferson at the 4 and 5 will do because this team isn't a playoff team for atleast another year after next.
Philadelphia 76ers- Cole Aldrich- Not the sexy or risky pick but I see him as a very good player in this league. That and I don't think Dalembert is the answer at C. They need some strength down low.
Indiana Pacers- Derrick Favors -I think his potential is too much to pass on. Indiana needs his athleticism and he can develop behind Hibbert/Murphy/Hansbrough. Indiana has alot of issues to resolve before they are contendors so they can wait on Favors for a little bit.
GS Warriors- Donatas Motiejunas- Don Nelson grabs another Euro player to groom. But will motiejunas show the love for the game and passion that Dirk has. I don't like drafting Euro players but atleast don nelson has the best euro player ever on his resume.
Detroit Pistons- Al Farouq Aminu- I think they get rid of prince and Hamilton soon. They will need a SF. I think Aminu can be a great fit as he won't need the ball in his hands to produce big numbers.
Washington Wizards- Evan Turner- With the big 3 on the way out, Evan Turner is the right pick. He is very good on the court andafter the Arenas dibacle I think he is the right person for this franchise.
Sacramento- Xavier Henry- I think they look to get rid of Martin and make this Reke's team. With reke and Jason thompson its like a poor man trailblazers with roy and aldridge. To make up the difference the Knings get something the Blazers dont have, a solid second option on the wing to help score.
Utah Jazz- Patrick Patterson- Goodbye Carlos Boozer, hello Patrick Patterson. My pick for biggest sleeper. A veteran college player who can produce right away, strong downlow and a developing midrange game. I see him being a player just as good as Boozer, David West, and Paul millsap.
Chicago Bulls- Greg Monroe- Im not the biggest fan of Monroe but he is a big that can bang, hit the midrange shot and make a pass. May not be great but should be enough to free up Rose.
LA Clippers- Demarcus Cousins- The clippers grab another young big to try and develop. But really they could snag anybody at this pick.
Memphis Grizzlies- Ed Davis- Young athletic bigman who can learn a thing or 2 from a crafty lefty in Zach Randolph. If he develops like some think he could make the grizzlies a nasty team in the future.
Utah Jazz- Avery Bradley- I think Jerry Sloan would appreciate the defense of this young guy. and he wouldnt have to play pg on this team because he is not ready for that. A safe pick with Patterson earlier but with 2 lotto picks and depth at all positions they can tak a chance on Bradley.
New Orleans Hornets- Devin Ebanks- I think he can play the 2 on this team and be a good scorer in the near future. He would compliment Chris Paul very well with his athleticism and abiltity to shoot. I also considered Willie Warren here, more of a scorer but I like Ebanks versatility more.
AS an angy W's fan we need a small ****** forward!!! We have young bigs that are just injured right now... but wow, with turner available we wouldnt pass him up
I think that GSW should draft Ebanks or Johnson, they can be big time scorers and that is what suits Nellie's offense's.
As for the Pacers i still think Turner, Johnson or Warren will be who they take so they can get a legit 2nd option behind Granger.
Not a good enough shooter for us and it's doubtful Nellie will even be back next year so I would base our pick on roster need then system. Turnern or Wes are are 1st 2 options then probably Aminu
