In keeping with the drafting thread trend going on... I'd like to start a discussion on a few players I don't see much talk about around here.. and see what you guys think....
Over at NBA.com there are some videos up on alot of the players..
I think everyone should check them out... pretty cool...
I personally would be happy with Westbrook or Augustin.. if that is who we end up with.... barring Gordon or Love isn't on the boards still
But there are a few others who have really sparked my interest , and that's why I made this thread to get everyone elses opinions on these guys....
Here is a link to highlight videos of each of these players...
First up on my list of guys I like..
Chase Buddinger ...
H: 6' 7"
W: 190 lbs
(20 Years Old)

I really like this guy , I think he will end up being a way better player than most anticipate.. and I think the coaches at Arizona know this to be true as well.. He has EXCELLENT ballhandling skills, is excellent around the rim, due to his experience as one of the top 5 volleyball players in the country.. He also according to his coaches is a VERY team oriented player , is unselfish , and is constantly pushing himself to get better..
next we have
H: 7' 2"
W: 272 lbs
(21 Years Old)
Round: 1 Pick: 23 in 2008 Mock Draft
Rank 1 in NCAA Seniors
Rank 6 in Top Centers

Don't know much about this guy , except for what I have seen in some highlight footage.. and he looked to be pretty solid.. but could use some more muscle packed on him . opinions??
So what about these 2 guys, providing they are still on the board, and the Pacer's decide against DJ or Westbrooke .. or that no other players such as Gordon or Love are left for us...
I am not as concerned on this particular thread about us drafting by need, as we all know what we need.. lol I am just trying to get some opinions and info on these other 2 guys I dont see much talk about...
I think regardless of NEED we should pick the absolute best player..
