    http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/draft2...ckDraft-080520

    He has Westbrook going off the board at 7 to the Clippers.

    Great...the worst case scenario happens....Love, Westbrook and Gordon ( yes, I said it...Gordon ) are off the board.

    I guess I can live with Augustin....but I just keep on seeing stronger PGs continually post up our PG rotation of Diener and Augustin.

    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.

    I'd be content with DJ. I'm not sure it'll happen, though. The Pacers rarely agree with the "experts." I have a feeling we'll take Jordan.

    Westbrook at #7 is a stretch. They should take Gordon there.

    Gordon reunited with Sampson in Milwaukee eh? That would be interesting.

    Jerryd Bayless is listed as a 6'3" PF. He is a little undersized I think...

    Going by DJ's profile on ESPN.com, I'd be happy to have him.

    Hey, maybe that way he'll regain motivation and focus, and thus make the most of his potential.

    Interesting.

    Lots of Warrior fans are intrigued by the idea of DeAndre Jordan falling all the way down to #14. It's certainly possible. I don't see the Bucks, Kings, Clips or Blazers taking him.

    I could, however, see a situation where the Pacers (you do need a center, right?) or Nets role the dice on him.

    Hard to argue with his top 10. If that's the way it shakes out, Augustin makes sense at 11.

    But holy cow, look at the rest of the draft. CDR slips all the way to #29? Surely we could get a pick before that...

    It's possible. They just already have Sean Williams, Krstic and Boone. Do they want another project big?

    Jordan is talented and the Pacers do need a center. Those are the reasons I'd suspect him to be picked at #11, though there are PLENTY of reasons for him not to be.

    I think it's pretty well documented that I'm not DJ's biggest fan. But if we take Jordan over Augustin, I'll be pissed.

    I have a hard time believing Bird will take any kid like Jordan
    with a questionable motor/work ethic. As screwed up as the
    Pacers are, they can't afford to take the chance of this 1st rounder
    busting.

    Agreed. The Pacers are at the point where they need to take personal character into consideration. If Jordan is tagged as lazy while auditioning for his NBA job in college, it will only get worse once he has his guaranteed rookie contract in hand.

    Arthur and Jordan will creep into the top 11, I don't think Augustine and Westbrook will both be in the top 11.

    DJ does nothing for the defense. So that leaves bigs like McGee, Arthur, Hibbert? who is less of a risk than Jordan. At least some of these guys provide interior defense and rebounding.
    I sure hope the Pacers are looking past the end of their nose.

    I'd be shocked if we don't take little man.

    PG. Good shooter. Fan favorite. Great character.

    A no-brainer if he's available. I don't particularly like him, but it's still a no-brainer. Then again, I don't particularly like many of these guys after about #8 aside from CDR, Rush and Greene. Then again again, I didn't watch half as much college ball as I usually do this year.

    CDR at #29 is insane.

    NBAdraft.net also has a mock draft up.

    http://nbadraft.net/

    They have Rose going #1, the Pacers taking Westbrook, and CD-R going to Orlando at #22.

    So, I think Anthem would find that slightly less insane.
    WE ARE NOT GETTING ERIC GORDON

    I think CD-R is overrated here. Seems to fit that he would be projected to go to the Pistons.

    We should be able to make a deal for another first-rounder though, shouldn't we? I could see some interest in Ike And Quis for late firsts.

    Any word on if Chalmers is coming out? Where is DJ White projected to go these days? I still think it'd be cool if we came out of this draft with a pair of DJs.

    The slightly tempting thing about Jordan is that if he gets his head
    screwed on right and works hard at his game, 5 years from now,
    he's probably the 3rd best player in this draft. It's too bad the
    Pacers aren't in a better positon to take that kind of risk in hopes
    of the upside paying off. Other than a PG who can play at both ends,
    his size and athletic explosivness up front is the one thing this
    team (sans a healthy J.O. anyway) really needs.

    At least Chad's got Bill Walker in the first round. I can't believe how many have him projected into the 2nd. I watched mostly for Beas and Bill made an impression. He is clearly physical enough for the NBA and really KSt was all about just that pair of players, they rarely went without at least one on the court as the offensive focus.

    If it's Arthur or DJ I go with Arthur. Strong offensive moves in the post, goes either way, and can pass from the post as well. Not a great defender, but he's already ahead of Ike right now I think.

    The talent in the 20's sure makes a trade back into the first seem nice. And Weaver out into round 2 also makes a trade up there interesting. He's make a nice 8th-9th guy that would sort of be a McKey for the perimeter - defensive specialist with enough offense to stay on the floor.


    Also since when did DJ become 6'? Sure doesn't look it.

    I would consider Spreights over McGee, Hibbert and (maybe) Arthur. He's said to be NBA-Ready....we need to be sure that we get a guy that can provide the quickest and most impact on the team....I don't want to gamble....cuz we can't afford to roll snake-eyes on any player that we draft.
