    NBA Draft. net which really seems to do a good job of guessing a number of picks. Has had recently Roby, Famar, and now they have Maurice Ager going 17. Similar in some aspects to Fred Jones..

    Right now I am hoping Ronnie Brewer is there at 17...

    Why Not Us ?

    NBADraft.net has us getting Maurice Ager.

    He's Freddie with lesser defensive abilities.


    Edit: What Frank said.

    Are you comparing him to Langdon just because they went to the same school? They are nothing alike.

    Langdon could hit uncontested 3-pointers standing still.

    Redick can do that too.

    But in additon (from NBA draft.net):
    He (Redick) has also added a deadly mid range game to his repertoire, with the ability to create shots for himself with ball fakes and the dribble drive … Unbelievable at rolling off screens and hitting the open J ... Redick has picture perfect form, a lightning quick release and gets great elevation on his shot. He is also automatic from the free throw line ... Has a killer instinct and seems to step his game up in clutch situations ... Never appears tired, has great conditioning and work ethic ...

    I would be fine with it but I doubt he drops this far.

    rondo going to houston that high is laughable.

    i could definitely see bird taking reddick. he did mention in his press conference that he has his eye on one player in particular and that he's hoping he falls to us. reddick seems like birds type of player and he is projected to go between 10-18.

    I guess it depends upon what risks you want to take at #17.

    You can take a chance on a player with known issues like work ethic, attitude, coachability, etc. that would have been drafted higher on ability alone, roll the dice and hope you change him. 5% chance you get an all-star, 20% chance you get a starter, 25% chance you get a good rotation player, and 50% chance you get a total bust.

    Or you take a safer pick like Redick. 0% chance he will ever be an all-star, 15% chance he will be a starter, 75% chance he will be a solid rotation player, and 10% chance he will be a total bust.

    I'd prefer somthing I can count on, since there is not a single player on this team that I can count on for a good performance, due to injuries and inconsistency. AJ comes closest to being out most steady player, and we thought he was our 3rd string PG.

    At our pick, I'd take the best shooter available. Sounds like that might be Reddick. I guess I don't expect a superstar or star at #17.

    I just want somebody who can consistantly hit an outside shot. And I want it like a man in the desert wants water.

    That, and somebody who can defend quick SGs. But we're not going to get both of those things in the same player picking at 17.

    It's almost fitting if the Trailblazers take another bust like Tyrus Thomas. That guy has proved absolutely nothing other then that he can jump high and block shots. I can't even beleive he's a lottery pick.

    I'd be very pleased with Redick because he's probably the best and one of the most clutch shooters in college basketball. He's ultra competitive and just goes for the opponent's jugular by instinct.

    With all of his positive traits, I just don't see him being available at #17. I thought a couple of months ago that he was predicted to go about #8 - #12. What happened?

    I'd bet we won't be picking 17th if thats the guy Bird says he has his eye on.

    Tyrus Thomas will be good. I think Aldrige is the bigger bust.

    Hoopshype has Rondo at 17 and compares him to Brevin Knight.

    Kaufman would be the best source on Rondo.

    I'm going to try to find his posts on him.

    EDI: He's said he needs to mature more, and that he wouldn't be a good fit for this Pacer team.

    Bird was reportedly high on European SG Marko Tomas last year before he withdrew from the draft.

    Anybody know if he's going to be in this year's draft, and how he's been playing in Euroleague?

    On RealGM....I've heard that Steve Novak would be a solid 2nd round player...but won't be available by the time we draft in the 2nd round. If anything....Novak reminds me more of a younger version of VladRad or even Croshere.

    If Bird wants a decent shooter that can hit the 3pt shot and FTs to draft....figure out a way to get an early 2nd round draft pick and get Novak and skip on Reddick. He's the safer bet.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    As for a second round pick, I don't think Novak will be there. I'd like to see Taj Gray if he's available.

    Iv seen Reddick play many times and think if we were to get him at 17 he would be an even bigger capture then Granger was.

    The talent he has is immense. Can hit in clutch situations and has a pure shot. Decent passer to. Only downside is that I think he gets caught in one on one duels to often.

    Is Reddick tall enough to play the 2 spot? Is he athletic enough to defend at this level? It's not like we have the bigs to bail out bad defenders.

    I will be stunned if JJ falls to 17th. He and Morrison were neck-and-neck all season for National POTY, and Morrison is projected to go 13 spots higher?
