    He had a good discussion about the lottery picks with Ryen Russillo on Inside the NBA Podcast.

    It's kind of lengthy(38 min), but its a good listen:

    Says that Klay Thompson's stock has really risen and that Houston is trying everything to get out of the 14th spot, they have opened up their whole roster for trades.

    Pacerguy,

    who would you take at 15 if you have both picks and you take Singleton at 14? I would probably take Brooks. Ford didn't mention Brooks name once when talking about who the lottery teams were taking.

    Singleton, Brooks, and #42 would be nice.

    I tell you, the Rockets already have the deal in place with the Bucks to trade their 14th and 23rd picks for the 10th pick AS LONG AS the the players that both teams are wanting are still available when it is their time to pick. Same with us and the Knicks--we're in the same position as the Bucks basically.

    I still see Jimmer as a real possibility. If not, then yes, Brooks.

    Interesting. So he thinks Bucks may swap no.10 with Pacers' 15.
    I guess it would make sense if we really like the Jimmer.

    If we have the 10th, surely there is someone better than the Jimmer at that point. T Thompson, Singleton, Biyombo...

    Well if we move up a couple spots, it probably means we are targeting someone.
    I may be wrong, but I suspect Bird wouldn't make a move up unless he's targeting someone, and that guy seems to be rising in the draft. And I think he wouldn't target anyone he hasn't worked out or scouted a lot.
    Right it seems like the Jimmer or Klay Thompson both would fit that description.

    Would Marshon Brooks be a good fit for the Pacers at #15? What about Kenneth Faried?
    Chad Ford (1:48 PM)

    Brooks had a great workout there, but I think he's a long shot at 15. Always has been. Jimmer if he's there is the favorite. Tristan Thompson, Markieff Morris two other options at 15. Pacers would also like to move up a few spots.

    I think Bird is a bigger fan of Thompson than he is Morris and he wants to move up to pick the former instead of the latter. I agree that Jimmer and Klay are 2 other likely possibilities.

    I'm starting to think it might be Klay. Ford said he could go as high as 6 now, and that he is on a lot of team's radars.

    Of course you would almost have to wait until after the 9th pick to make sure he is still there.

    My guess is that the reason why the Pacers want to move up a few spots is to try to grab Tristan ( if he's there ). In most mocks, I have seen.....he's off the board....whereas Jimmer has been all over the place ( as high as the Kings at 7 but as low as the Pacers at 15 ).

    I do recall that although Tristan had refused to work out for the Pacers....this suggests that the Pacers FO did have interest in him in the first place...at least enough to extend an invitation to work out.

    It would be pretty cool to get Tristan or Singleton and then make another trade to get Reggie Jackson. Defense would be vastly improved.

    There is still a lot of value in the beginning part of round 2. Not much difference from about 20 - middle part of round 2. Nice role players/potential spot starters.

    I think the player Bird was referring to about a potential drop is not Valanciunas, but Kemba Walker. Walker all along has been pegged at 7 to the Kings, even some potential interest from the Raptors at 5. But now there's talk that these teams are zeroing in on other players, and even Walker's supposed safe teams (Pistons, Bobcats) may pass on him as well.

    It's unlikely he makes it all the way to 15 (stranger things have happened) but he could make it to that 10 or 11 area.

    And really Walker seems to be the type of player that Bird would covet - national champion, a leader, confident, player of the year caliber, experienced college player. Basically, a guard version of Hansbrough. I think Walker could be the target and the pick.

    My guess is Jimmer or Kemba. Bird wants scoring and tends to value players who are proven college winners and have swagger. Both of those guys more than fit the bill.

    We already have a good young PG, idk why we would be trading up just to duplicate what we already have at PG

    I agree about Jimmer......he has the college pedigree that I think that Bird LOVES to get his hands on.

    I think that if Tristan or Singleton falls past 10...that Bird will move up...but if they don't...he'll wait it out to see if Jimmer falls to them at 15. If the Raptors at #5, Wizards at #6, Kings at #7 and the Pistons at #8 reach for a Player ( like Biyombo or Tristan ); then that would IMHO drop a top 10 Player out of the top 10 and Teams like the Jazz and Suns have a Player on the Board that they don't expect to be there.

    If some Team reaches or some Player falls down the draft ladder...I think that Jimmer could fall right into Bird's lap.

    I think Tristan Thompson makes a lot of sense.

    Other possibilities are Jimmer,Klay, or Biyombo.
