I disagree on Detroit and

I disagree on Detroit and Utah

No way Utah decides to take DeMarcus Cousins over Evan Turner. Turner is a perfect fit in Sloan's system.

Detroit needs a Point Guard...period

So John Wall has a 57%

So John Wall has a 57% chance he goes #1.
Demarcus Cousins has a 29% chance.
Evan Turner has a 14% chance.

I think John Wall goes 1 almost 100%. I think his stock is too high to pass on him. I think he is drafted and is traded or the teams other PG is traded.

i agree with these picks,

i agree with these picks, expect the pistons. and as a pistosn fan, i wood not want to c them take cousins over wall. perosnally, stuckey is more of a 2 gaurd then a 1, and if they win the lottery, wall and stuckey wood make a great back court, if the pistons did take wall

Pistons

I'm not convinced that we "need a point guard", I would agree that Stuckey is not a pure PG by an stretch of the imagination. But he can be a good PG in this league. With that being said I would still take Wall with the 1st pick, and just play him with Stuckey, which I think would be a very good back court (yes it would lack some shooting).

i finally meet a pistons fan

i finally meet a pistons fan on this site lol. i mean if the pistons really like cousins or sumtin, i guess they can take him, but wall to me is basically a derrick rose clone. his potential is unlimited. but detroit is a stretch for the 1st pick.

STRONG:Y disagree with

STRONG:Y disagree with N.O....First off, they have a very similar player to Cousins with David West and secondly their SG is Mo Pete??? MO FREAKING PETE...And you pass on Evan Turner? Unless you had the idea that Thornton was going to be the starting 2? But even then Turner can be the 3

chabvis.... if detroit took wall... theyd have a backcourt of wall stuckey will bynum and ben gordon... they would immediately trade rip and tay for anything... especially a frontcourt player... possibly in a sign and trade..

i am a pistons fan as well,

i am a pistons fan as well, our weakness has always been inside we can take care of it now and, either wait a year for Kalin Lucas, Brandon Knight, Kyle Irving, Cory Joseph, or Corey Fisher, or the other option is trade for Collison

Utah has Millsap so even if

Utah has Millsap so even if Boozer leaves they are in good hands. Turner would be the perfect fit for them.

Noh

DaMarcus Cousins is not a David West, not even close, David West can come out 19 ft and hit the shot while DaMarcus clogs the paint, Peja, Mo-Pete and Songaillas contracts end after next year giving them alot of cap to work with, they can trade Okafor and Mo-Pete for Michael Redd

You are right about the

You are right about the Kings not taking John Wall and taking Demarcus Cosins at #1 overall. They are the one team I know that would not take John Wall if they won the lottery. The vacancy has already been filled by Tyreke Evans. Tyreke Evans already fills the role of the dominant ball-handling guard who runs the offense. A Wall-Evans backcourt would resemble something like Dwyane Wade and Brandon Roy trying to play together. Two really talented guards that have a style of play to similar to be paired up together. That is why the Kings traded Kevin Martin. They are both ball-dominating guards that would not be able to work together, and they wouldn't want to put themselves in the same situation by drafting John Wall. The Kings need a big man and would pick one at number #1 overall. I do think that it would be a better idea to trade down to the #3 or #4 pick and take a big man there.

"chabvis.... if detroit took wall... theyd have a backcourt of wall stuckey will bynum and ben gordon... they would immediately trade rip and tay for anything... especially a frontcourt player... possibly in a sign and trade.."

Yes that is the idea. Gordon played his best (and he played well in those stretches) at the beginning and the end of the year. I don't think that it is a coincidence that this was the same time that Rip was out injured. Rip and Tay are both still good players, but to move forward we have to deal them to get help in the frontcourt.

Stuckey can play. He is the only guy on our roster (possibly Jerebko and Daye) that I would have to think long and hard before trading. Stuckey is not a classic PG, but he can play the point and he can also slide over and play the 2. A rotation of Stuckey, Wall, Gordon, and possibly Bynum (although he would probably be moved if we lucked into Wall) would be a very good back court.

Our biggest problems are definitely in the front court, but with the top pick you have to take the best player available. It is not as if we are one player away from competing for the ship. I would consider taking Cousins over Turner, but I am really high on Cousins and not as high on Turner. Plus the fact that we are already jam packed at the 2 makes it a more difficult situation if we draft Turner rather than getting Wall.

Utah

they need a shot blocker, bad. Sloan seems to like there shooting guards; Matthews and Korver, they traded away Brewer who was a good defender and 3 point shooter, they can get one in the offseason when AK47 contract ends

Kings

The Kings would take Wall at number 1 and move Evans to the SG. Wall is the clear number 1 on everybody's boards. Tyreke is a borderline PG as it is (if Stuckey is not a PG then Tyreke is not either) and a back court of Wall and Evans would be the best in the league in a few years.

I am really high on Cousins, but the guy has some issues. You just don't see the same question marks surrounding Wall at all. His one weakness IMO is his shooting, but even that is not atrocious. He can greatly improve it in a few seasons. Cousins has all of the "mental issues" that everybody loves to talk about. I don't buy into them really, but clogging up the lane for Tyreke is probably not the best idea and Cousins is definitely going to clog the lane. I am sure they could easily make it work, but I think they take Wall regardless.

The only teams that don't take Wall would be:
NO
Utah
Minnesota (simply so Kahn does not look stupid)
possibly GS

Every other team takes Wall, unless they are really really high on Turner. Nobody else does not take Wall because he "doesn't fit".

...

Just a side note, Ronnie Brewer is and was a never good 3 point shooter. Look at the stats. He's a good defender though.

NOH taking DeMarcus? Really?

When they have virtually no swingman to complement CP3? Draft Turner, have him play the 3 if you want Collison or Throton to play the 2 if they play small ball, or have him play the 2 with CP3

Marcus Thorton could

Marcus Thorton could definitely be the future at the 2, but he would also make a dynamite 6th man. Plus, Turners versatility would allow them to play together without a hiccup. Oh yah, then add to that the best pg combo in the league.

Marcus Thorton at 2?

I believe he is to small to consistantly gaurd the opposing teams 2 gaurd. They would go with Turner for sure.

Minnesota even though have Rubio in waiting would take Wall and trade the rights to Rubio to a NY/NJ team. I think they should pass on Wall and grab Turner either way. Big T wolve fan and I'm hoping for the #2 pick so we are forced to take Turner.

I can see NJ passing on Wall since Harris is a capable All Star type of performer. Some help down low would be great so Cousins would be a good choice.

What does Houston do with Brooks if they take Wall? I don't know what happens to Yao but Cousins could go here as the center or power forward next to Yao.

I don't see Utah taking the chance on the Cousins emotional problems. Sloan has a type of player he selects and Cousins doesn't fit that model. I think Turner fits that better.

But are we all in agreement that it will be one of these three (wall, cousins or turner) or is there any way Favors or someone else can join this conversation?

I think Wall goes first with

I think Wall goes first with few exceptions:
1-Utah:Turner
2-Hornets:Turner
3-Sac: small possibility they go for Turner or Cousins as I read at some of their forums fans saying that they don't think Wall&Evans would work together,I think they know their team better than me so if the GM share the same opinion who knows
4-Detroit:Cousins :Stuckey developing every day into a better PG,they need a good big man so IF HE CAN IMPRESS THEM IN THE WORKOUTS they may think about him
Note that the last 2 are a possibility not saying it will sure happen

bur I want to add that if any team decided not to take Wall THEY WILL TRY TO TRADE PICKS RATHER THAN SELECTING SOMEONE ELSE WITH THE FIRST PICK
oh and Kahn already said that he will take the best available player when he was asked earlier this season about what is he gonna do if he got the 1st pick and this was at the begining of the season when their was no wall vs Turner at all i.e he was saying he will take Wall (and I think he will wait one year to Trade Rubio when he has maximum value)
