1. LAC - Griffin

2. MEM - Rubio*
Highest value player. See #4.

3. OKC - Thabeet
Addresses need at C and strengthens post defense. Rare player type. Great compliment to Durant.

4. SAC - Hill*
Traded to MEM for Rubio. MEM needs a PF to go along with Marc Gasol, SAC needs a PG.

5. WAS - Evans
Future star/playmaker, could start if Arenas goes down; future backcourt of Evans and Young :drool:

6. MIN - Harden*
Highest value player. MIN has a huge need for a veteran PG that plays defense. Will use Harden to trade for one... Think to OKC w/ Cardinal for Earl Watson?

7. GS - Jennings*
Highest value player. Trade bait? This is the player I think NY really wants and is trying to smoke-screen GS into taking Curry with... True PG. Rumors has discussed return to GS for Baron. Jennings may be included.

8. NY - Curry
D'Antoni-type player.

9. TOR - Blair
Strength and defense. Could play alongside Bosh ala Big Ben. Brings defense with a team filled with Offense-geared players: Kapono, Bargnani...

10. MIL - Lawson
Insurance in case Sessions is gone.

11. NJ - Flynn
NJ has huge needs at backup PG. Harris can play some off-guard. Lebron is a huge fan of...

12. CHA - DeRozen
Raja is getting up there and this fills a huge need at SG in the future.

13. IND - Earl Clark?
Athletic, mobile, strong potential. Needs to develop range but can hit the jumper and play in the high post.

If Holiday isn't chosen by our pick, we would be idiots to pass him up. He's a top 5 talent in this draft.

Holiday and Evans will probably be gone by the #13 pick. But if theyre around we should take them. Holiday especailly, but I think he'll go top 10 for sure

This draft kinda reminds me of the 2007 draft with Oden and Durant two years ago. You have the top 2 guys with Griffin and Rubio. Oden and Durant were more of a toss up.

But everything else was pretty much a toss up after Horford at #3. Which could be Thabeet this year. Some pretty solid players have contributed out of that draft so far.

#5 Jeff Green
#9 Joakim Noah
#12 Thaddeus Young
#15 Rodney Stuckey
#23 Wilson Chandler
#24 Rudy Fernandez
#26 Aaron Brooks

And there's a few others that have been solid as well.

I think this may be another draft where you may not have the big/household names, but you have some solid players that can really help a team.

Since a lot of teams don't seem to want to take on a lot of cap, or guarenteed money, this may be a year to try to obtain or buy another late round pick

Agreed. Now that a few workouts have started, Holiday's being projected as high as #4 to Sacramento. I really don't think there's anyway he's going to make it to the Pacers. I don't see any scenario where both Lawson and Flynn are picked before Holiday, unless teams really fell in love with Aaron Brooks during the playoffs.

Also, I don't buy the idea of NJ drafting a PG and playing Devin Harris at the 2. That seems silly to me.
