Sorry if I missed this elsewhere...

ESPN’s Ric Bucher reported that the Sonics gave the Clippers the #4 pick for the the #7 pick and a 2009 protected pick. Which guard are the Paper Clips jumping up to grab?Can't find this on www.espn.com (http://www.espn.com) yet, but apparently Bucher reported it on ESPNTV.

The Clippers and Sonics have agreed to swap picks as long as the Wolves take O.J. Mayo at No. 3. If Mayo isn't drafted at 3, the deal is off according to two sources close to the information.

With the No. 4 pick, expect the Clippers to take Eric Gordon of Indiana. They've coveted him as the type of dominant scorer that they've been looking for.

The Sonics will take Brook Lopez or Jerryd Bayless at No. 7. However it seems like Lopez will be the guy.

Oops, sorry. There's so many combined threads saying different things that I didn't see that.

No no, I think this deserves its own thread.

So Eric can play in the same disarray that he did at IU.

I think Bayless is a better fit in LA, but we'll see what happens.

Never thought it would happen but maybe maybe Bayless will drop down to us.

Wow... they traded next years first just to grab EJ when many thought he might fall out of the top ten.

NBADraft.net updated to show the trade. They have the Clippers takin Westbrook at 4 and EJ dropping to 10.

Yeah, NBADraft says the Clippers want Westbrook. ESPN says they want Gordon. Who knows what's going on at this point.

I think the only way this happens is IF the Sonics take Lopez.

Which is apparently what they are looking to do. (According to ESPN)

Apparently, the Grizzlies were going to take Gordon over Love, so it makes sense that the Clippers traded one pick above them to get their guy. I don't buy that it's Westbrook.

Love or Gordon or Bayless available to the Pacers? Should be interesting. I am heading
to Conseco. Over and out. :-)

1. Rose
2. Beasley
3. Mayo
4. Gordon
5. Love
6. Westbrook
7. Lopez

I really hope we're on the phone with teams that want Alexander or Gallinari.
