    PICK TEAM PLAYER VITALS


    Cleveland
    (via L.A. Clippers)


    Kyrie Irving

    Position: PG
    Height: 6-foot-4
    Weight: 191 pounds
    Age: 19
    School: Duke
    Analysis: I know there's still some uncertainty out there. There always is. But all signs continue to point to Irving as the No. 1 pick. He has a chance to be special and, in this draft, that makes him worthy of going this high.

    The Cavs may not love what's left for them at No. 4, but at least they walk away feeling that they got the best player in the draft.



    PICK TEAM PLAYER VITALS


    Minnesota


    Derrick Williams

    Position: PF
    Height: 6-9
    Weight: 249
    Age: 20
    School: Arizona
    Analysis: The Wolves will work the phones until the last minute looking for a trade. If they keep the pick? They are considering Enes Kanter and started telling teams around the league on Wednesday that they're leaning in that direction.

    I can see the appeal of Kanter. He probably fits a need more. But Williams is the second-best talent in this draft and I think talent ultimately trumps need, so they'll take Williams and sort it out later this summer.


    PICK TEAM PLAYER VITALS


    Utah
    (via New Jersey)


    Enes Kanter

    Position: C
    Height: 6-11
    Weight: 260
    Age: 19
    Country: Turkey
    Analysis: GM Kevin O'Connor is now issuing his famous "no comment" when asked about what the Jazz will do here. They are one of the most tight-lipped teams in the league. They aren't leaking who they'll take at No. 3.

    So why did I change this from Brandon Knight to Kanter? Because it's hard to get legit centers in the league, especially ones with Kanter's upside. So are point guards, which is why Knight could be the pick. But as of very early Thursday, I think the Jazz will go with size and upside and Kanter.



    PICK TEAM PLAYER VITALS


    Cleveland


    Jonas Valanciunas

    Position: C
    Height: 7-0
    Weight: 245
    Age: 19
    Country: Lithuania
    Analysis: We had Valanciunas in this position last week. But on Monday we reported that Valanciunas' buyout with his team in Lithuania would prohibit him from coming to the NBA next season.

    The Cavs love Valanciunas, but do they love him enough to draft him even if he won't be coming to the NBA right away? There are growing signals that they do. Valanciunas was in Cleveland on Tuesday meeting with Cavs brass. They conducted a physical and a workout as well which has seemingly calmed their fears.

    But another serious dark horse here is Tristan Thompson. As I reported on Wednesday, Thompson met with owner Dan Gilbert in Cleveland on Monday, and the Cavs are intrigued. As I gather more info, this is one spot where the mock could change in Version 7.1.


    PICK TEAM PLAYER VITALS


    Toronto

    Brandon Knight

    Position: PG
    Height: 6-3
    Weight: 177
    Age: 19
    School: Kentucky
    Analysis: GM Bryan Colangelo has been looking for defensive help, and I had been hearing over the past 24 hours that Bismack Biyombo and Kawhi Leonard had risen on the Raptors' board. But if Knight slides this far, I don't think they'll pass.

    Knight has tremendous upside, is a good defender in his own right and, alongside DeMar DeRozan, would give the Raptors an intriguing young backcourt.


    PICK TEAM PLAYER VITALS


    Washington

    Jan Vesely

    Position: PF
    Height: 6-11
    Weight: 240
    Age: 21
    Country: Czech Republic
    Analysis: The Wizards need rebounding and would love it if Kanter was still on the board. They've also been huge fans of Vesely and would jump at the chance to take him here. His ability to run the floor would be a welcome fit alongside John Wall and JaVale McGee.

    Tristan Thompson is the other player to watch here. The Wizards need help on the boards and Thompson is one of the best offensive rebounders in the draft.



    PICK TEAM PLAYER VITALS


    Sacramento

    Kemba Walker

    Position: PG
    Height: 6-1
    Weight: 184
    Age: 21
    School: UConn
    Analysis: Walker wins this battle by process of elimination. In the past 24 hours, it sounds like the push for Jimmer Fredette, Kawhi Leonard, Alec Burks and even Klay Thompson has cooled. I'm told that ideally the Kings would like to find a way to trade this pick for a veteran.

    But if they stay here, I'm reluctantly putting Walker here. If he does go to the Kings, he's going to breathe a huge sigh of relief. From what I can gather, he's in danger of sliding, and sliding far, if the Kings don't take him here.



    PICK TEAM PLAYER VITALS


    Detroit

    Tristan Thompson

    Position: PF
    Height: 6-9
    Weight: 228
    Age: 20
    School: Texas
    Analysis: The Pistons are likely going to add a player with size here. Thompson, Bismack Biyombo and Markieff Morris are all options. All three worked out in Detroit on Tuesday and played well. Morris may have been the best of the bunch, but this is a bit high for him.

    I think the Pistons will seriously look at moving this pick to the Rockets for the 14th and 23rd picks. Kawhi Leonard is also a potential pick here. But if the Pistons stay at 8, I think Thompson has a slight edge over Biyombo. A darkhorse here is Valanciunas. If the Cavs take Tristan Thompson at 4, the Pistons are seriously considering taking Valanciunas and waiting a year.



    PICK TEAM PLAYER VITALS


    Charlotte

    Kawhi Leonard

    Position: SF
    Height: 6-7
    Weight: 228
    Age: 19
    School: San Diego St.
    Analysis: The Bobcats will be thrilled if Leonard is still on the board here. While Leonard isn't the same player as Gerald Wallace, he brings much of the same intensity. Bismack Biyombo is also an option here, as are the Morris twins and Alec Burks. But I doubt the Bobcats could pass on Leonard.



    PICK TEAM PLAYER VITALS


    Milwaukee

    Klay Thompson

    Position: SG
    Height: 6-7
    Weight: 206
    Age: 21
    School: Washington St.
    Analysis: The Bucks are also listening to a number of offers for this pick. They could move down or totally out of the draft. If they keep the pick, I think it likely comes down to Thompson and Alec Burks. They play the same position but have different strengths. Thompson is a shooter; Burks is a slasher.

    Since the Bucks are telling me pretty strongly that they're holding on to Brandon Jennings as their point guard, and since the team is making a strong drive to get back to the playoffs, I think Thompson is a better fit.



    PICK TEAM PLAYER VITALS


    Golden State

    Bismack Biyombo

    Position: PF
    Height: 6-9
    Weight: 243
    Age: 18
    Country: Congo
    Analysis: Warriors adviser Jerry West is a fan of Klay Thompson and would likely select him if he's still on the board. Ditto for Jonas Valanciunas. But if they're off the board, don't be surprised if the Warriors grab Biyombo. They desperately need size and toughness in the paint and Biyombo can deliver from day one.



    PICK TEAM PLAYER VITALS


    Utah

    Jimmer Fredette

    Position: PG
    Height: 6-3
    Weight: 196
    Age: 22
    School: Brigham Young
    Analysis: I wonder ... will crazed Jimmer fans rush to the streets of Salt Lake City and Provo if Fredette's name is called here? He's been a long shot for weeks because we've had the Jazz taking Brandon Knight.

    But if Utah goes with Kanter, it's likely they'll select Jimmer here. I think it's a good pick. Jazz fans probably think it's the best pick in franchise history. We'll see.



    PICK TEAM PLAYER VITALS


    Phoenix

    Markieff Morris

    Position: PF/C
    Height: 6-9
    Weight: 241
    Age: 21
    School: Kansas
    Analysis: I had Marcus Morris here in Mock 7.0 but I'm now hearing it's his brother, Markieff, who is higher on the Suns' board. Earlier this year, I wrote that some teams prefer Markieff to Marcus even though Marcus is more skilled.

    Markieff has better size and is a better rebounder and shot-blocker. Meanwhile, Marcus is getting pegged as a tweener right now which may cause him to slide. Iman Shumpert is also strongly in the mix here.



    PICK TEAM PLAYER VITALS


    Houston

    Nikola Vucevic

    Position: C
    Height: 7-0
    Weight: 260
    Age: 20
    School: USC
    Analysis: The Rockets are talking to everyone -- and I mean everyone -- about moving up in the draft. Everyone from the Wolves at 2 to the Warriors at 11 have heard the pitch. I think someone ultimately will bite, and I think it could be Detroit.

    But if not, the Rockets are likely to reach a little bit for some size in the paint. They are desperate for it, and Vucevic is the biggest man in the draft. Chris Singleton and Markieff Morris are also options.



    PICK TEAM PLAYER VITALS


    Indiana


    Alec Burks

    Position: SG
    Height: 6-6
    Weight: 193
    Age: 19
    School: Colorado
    Analysis: Under this scenario, the Pacers' three biggest targets (Fredette, Klay Thompson and Markieff Morris) are all gone. Burks didn't work out for the Pacers, but they've done their homework. He's probably the best talent left on the board even if he does duplicate Paul George to a certain extent.

    Marcus Morris, Chris Singleton and Marshon Brooks would also get looks here.




    PICK TEAM PLAYER VITALS


    Philadelphia


    Jordan Hamilton

    Position: SF
    Height: 6-9
    Weight: 229
    Age: 20
    School: Texas
    Analysis: The Sixers need size, but with Thompson, Vucevic and Morris all off the board, the only other big man worth taking here is Kenneth Faried. If Faried were a little bit bigger, I think they'd do it. Instead, I think the Sixers will prepare for the inevitable trade of Andre Iguodala.

    It may not come on draft night, but most believe it will happen sometime before the season, and that's why Hamilton is the pick. Donatas Motiejunas is another possibility here.



    PICK TEAM PLAYER VITALS


    New York


    Chris Singleton

    Position: SF
    Height: 6-9
    Weight: 230
    Age: 21
    School: Florida State
    Analysis: The Knicks have a bunch of scorers. What they really need are defenders. Singleton will get looks as high as No. 9 to the Bobcats, but I doubt he will slide any further than here. Not only is he the best defender in the draft, he also has potential to be a spot-up 3-point shooter.

    Iman Shumpert, Alec Burks and Marshon Brooks are also in the mix here.



    PICK TEAM PLAYER VITALS


    Washington
    (via Atlanta)


    Marcus Morris

    Position: PF
    Height: 6-9
    Weight: 230
    Age: 21
    School: Kansas
    Analysis: This would be a major slide for Marcus. But his insistence that he's not really a power forward has hurt his stock a bit. Teams don't believe he can be a 3 and now see him as somewhat of a tweener.

    Still, at this point, he's a good value and he could play some 3 and some 4 in Washington.



    PICK TEAM PLAYER VITALS


    Charlotte
    (via New Orleans)


    Marshon Brooks

    Position: SG
    Height: 6-5
    Weight: 195
    Age: 22
    School: Providence
    Analysis: The Bobcats, in this mock, get their defender with the No. 9 pick. That means they go pure offense 10 picks later. Brooks is one of the best scorers in the draft and would be a good long-term upgrade at the 2. Shumpert is also a possibility here.



    PICK TEAM PLAYER VITALS


    Minnesota
    (via Memphis)


    Iman Shumpert

    Position: PG
    Height: 6-6
    Weight: 221
    Age: 20
    College: Georgia Tech
    Analysis: The Wolves added some serious offensive pop with the arrival of Ricky Rubio and, in this mock, Derrick Williams. Shumpert would give them a major defensive presence in their backcourt.

    While he's not the most offensively gifted player in the draft, his ability to guard both backcourt positions, combined with his elite athleticism, make him an interesting choice at No. 20.



    PICK TEAM PLAYER VITALS


    Portland


    Kenneth Faried

    Position: PF
    Height: 6-8
    Weight: 225
    Age: 21
    School: Morehead State
    Analysis: The Blazers fell in love with Faried last year before he withdrew from the draft. If they are fortunate enough to get a second chance at him this year, they'll grab him. His relentlessness on the boards is a nice complement to LaMarcus Aldridge's more offensive-minded style.

    Markieff Morris, Tobias Harris, Iman Shumpert and Reggie Jackson are others to watch.



    PICK TEAM PLAYER VITALS


    Denver


    Tobias Harris

    Position: PF
    Height: 6-8
    Weight: 223
    Age: 18
    School: Tennessee
    Analysis: I guess we can't call Harris one of the more underrated players in the draft when he hasn't moved off 22 in any of our mocks. He can play both the 3 and 4, and he has a very high basketball IQ and an NBA body. Harris doesn't do any one thing at an elite level, but he is one of the most well-rounded players in the draft.

    Iman Shumpert, Chandler Parsons and Tyler Honeycutt are other possibilities here.


    PICK TEAM PLAYER VITALS


    Houston
    (via Orlando)


    Donatas Motiejunas

    Position: PF
    Height: 7-0
    Weight: 220
    Age: 19
    Country: Lithuania
    Analysis: At this point in the draft, you quit worrying about draft needs and you draft according to talent. Motiejunas is a major talent. He's got flaws, but at No. 23 you live with them. If the Rockets don't trade the pick away, Jimmy Butler is a possibility here, as is Darius Morris.



    PICK TEAM PLAYER VITALS


    Oklahoma City


    Kyle Singler

    Position: SF
    Height: 6-9
    Weight: 228
    Age: 23
    College: Duke
    Analysis: I don't have Singler rated as a top-30 prospect. But I might be mistaken. A source said the Thunder are very high on Singler and believe he could be an Andres Nocioni-type player in the NBA.

    He is tough, has a good motor and will be able to knock down open shots. If he plays that role in the NBA, he's well worth the 24th pick. Reggie Jackson, Jimmy Butler and Nikola Mirotic are other possibilities here.



    PICK TEAM PLAYER VITALS


    Boston


    Jimmy Butler

    Position: G/F
    Height: 6-8
    Weight: 222
    Age: 21
    School: Marquette
    Analysis: If the Celtics are going to keep competing for a title, they need players who know their roles, can play without the ball in their hands and meld in. Butler brings toughness, defense and heart.

    Butler epitomizes that approach with his game and would be a great fit with the Celtics as a player who can play multiple positions off the bench. Reggie Jackson is another strong possibility here, as is Norris Cole.


    PICK TEAM PLAYER VITALS


    Dallas


    Nikola Mirotic

    Position: SF
    Height: 6-10
    Weight: 226
    Age: 21
    Country: Serbia
    Analysis: The Mavs likely will stay primarily a veteran team. So they'll work to add value wherever they can. Mirotic is a talented player who would go 10 spots higher if he weren't stuck in Europe the next two or three years with a difficult contract to escape.

    But the Mavs can afford to be patient with a talent like this and hope that in a few years, he'll be ready to step in and play right away.



    PICK TEAM PLAYER VITALS


    New Jersey
    (via L.A. Lakers)


    Reggie Jackson

    Position: PG
    Height: 6-3
    Weight: 208
    Age: 21
    School: Boston College
    Analysis: Jackson hasn't done any workouts, has a knee injury and isn't sharing his medical records. Why would the Nets take a player like that? Well, they, along with a lot of NBA teams, believe that another team has shut down Jackson's workouts with a promise to draft him.

    That shouldn't stop the Nets from grabbing Jackson anyway. Yes, they have Deron Williams. But he's not a sure thing to stay in New Jersey after next season. Even if he does, Jackson would be a terrific backup and could play off the ball in certain situations.

    If Jackson hadn't suffered a knee injury just as the draft prep began, he could have gone much higher. Norris Cole, Justin Harper, Josh Selby and Chandler Parsons also are possibilities.



    PICK TEAM PLAYER VITALS


    Chicago
    (via Miami)


    Justin Harper

    Position: PF
    Height: 6-9
    Weight: 228
    Age: 21
    School: Richmond
    Analysis: Harper was one of the best stretch 4s in college basketball last season. He also has size and is a pretty good athlete. The Bulls need perimeter shooting, and Harper should be able to give them some.

    Charles Jenkins, Tyler Honeycutt and Jeremy Tyler are also possibilities.



    PICK TEAM PLAYER VITALS


    San Antonio


    Davis Bertans

    Position: SF
    Height: 6-10
    Weight: 210
    Age: 18
    Country: Latvia
    Analysis: The Spurs have done a good job over the years of finding young international players and stashing them overseas for a few years until they're ready.

    Bertans showed he can be a big-time shooter at the Nike Hoop Summit and adidas Eurocamp, and he's only 18 years old. So it's worth taking a flier on him and seeing what he can accomplish after another year or two in Europe.



    PICK TEAM PLAYER VITALS


    Chicago


    Nolan Smith

    Position: SG
    Height: 6-4
    Weight: 188
    Age: 22
    School: Duke
    Analysis: The Bulls need scorers in their backcourt and ultimately need to find a backup for Derrick Rose at point guard. Smith isn't the sort of player who really wows you with one thing. But he's a winner, he's versatile and he's been a solid shooter in college. He's a perfect backup guard.

    Default Re: Chad Ford Mock 7.1

    Second Round:

    31. Miami Heat (via Minnesota)

    JaJuan Johnson | F | Purdue

    The Heat are hoping that Reggie Jackson falls this far. But if a team snatches Jackson up, Johnson would be a nice fit. He is long, shoots the ball well and has four years of experience.


    32. Cleveland Cavaliers

    Chandler Parsons | SF | Florida

    If the Cavs get a point guard and a big man early in the draft, don't be surprised to see them reach a bit for Parsons here. He has great size, is very skilled and has been one of the best workout players in the draft.


    33. Detroit Pistons (via Toronto)

    Norris Cole | PG | Cleveland State

    In our mock, the Pistons miss out on Kemba Walker, but Cole isn't a bad substitute. He's a classic point guard who can fly up and down the floor, make a great pass and get into the lane. He could be the sleeper of the draft.


    34. Washington Wizards

    Jordan Williams | C | Maryland

    The Wizards added some flash with their first two picks in the draft. With the third one, they add some toughness and rebounding. Williams doesn't have ideal size, nor is he a great athlete. But he's a tough rebounder.


    35. Sacramento Kings

    Tyler Honeycutt | G/F | UCLA

    The Kings' other big need right now is at small forward, and Honeycutt could be a great fit. He's got a high basketball IQ, has point-forward skills and he's a solid shooter.


    36. New Jersey Nets

    Bojan Bogdanovic | SF | Serbia

    Bogdanovic was the second-leading scorer in the Euroleague this year. If he could come to the U.S. this year or next, he'd likely be a first-round pick. In the second round, he's a steal.


    37. Los Angeles Clippers (via Detroit)

    Josh Selby | PG | Kansas

    The Clippers have always been a team willing to take chances on young college players who didn't always live up to expectations. If Selby falls this far in the draft, he's a steal here. There's nothing to lose, and a lot to gain.


    38. Houston Rockets (via Los Angeles Clippers)

    Darius Morris | PG | Michigan

    The Rockets would like to add some size in the backcourt and have been fans of Morris for a while. At No. 38, he's worth the risk. He has a lot of Andre Miller to his game.


    39. Charlotte Bobcats

    Malcolm Lee | PG | UCLA

    The Bobcats really need a big point guard to play when teams overwhelm D.J. Augustin with size. Lee is one of the best perimeter defenders in the draft and has terrific upside.


    40. Milwaukee Bucks

    Jeremy Tyler | C | Tokyo Apache

    The Bucks have never been afraid to roll the dice on a player with major upside. They did it with Brandon Jennings and it paid off big-time. Here, Tyler isn't a huge risk. He's big, athletic and can play both the 4 and the 5. He needs time to develop, but he has great potential.


    41. Los Angeles Lakers (from Golden State via New Jersey)

    Shelvin Mack | PG | Butler

    The Lakers need to replace Derek Fisher at some point and Mack would be a great candidate; they are both tough combo guards who can shoot the ball. Mack reminds me a bit of a poor man's Joe Dumars. He could bring a lot to the table in L.A.


    42. Indiana Pacers

    Charles Jenkins | PG | Hofstra

    The Pacers really need a player who can create for himself off the dribble. Jenkins is a poor man's Jimmer. He was one of the best scorers in college basketball this past season and can play multiple positions. He'd be a nice fit here.


    43. Chicago Bulls (via Utah)

    Jon Leuer | PF | Wisconsin

    The Bulls continue to stock up on shooters by adding Leuer to the mix. He was one of the best shooting bigs in the NCAA, and he's a good get at this spot of the draft.


    44. Golden State Warriors (From Phoenix via Chicago)

    Trey Thompkins | PF | Georgia

    The Warriors could always use some low-post scoring and Thompkins actually has a lot of talent scoring in the low block. He's got to get in better shape, but at this point in the draft, he's worth the risk.


    45. New Orleans (via Philadelphia)

    Greg Smith | C | Fresno State

    Smith is raw. But he has an NBA body, good athleticism and huge hands. He's a project, but a very solid one.


    46. Los Angeles Lakers (From New York)

    Malcolm Thomas | PF | San Diego State

    Thomas is an elite athlete who can run the floor, rebound and block shots. He's still raw offensively, but he has lots of upside for the 46th pick.


    47. Los Angeles Clippers (From Houston)

    Giorgi Shermadini | C | Georgia

    Shermadini is a talented big man who can really score. He may not come over for a few years, but down the road he could be a very good pickup for the Clippers.


    48. Atlanta Hawks

    Travis Leslie | SG | Georgia

    The Hawks can always use more athletes in the backcourt, and Leslie may be the best leaper in the draft. The question is whether he'll ever learn how to shoot the ball.


    49. Memphis Grizzlies

    Cory Joseph | PG | Texas

    Mike Conley has cemented himself as the Grizzlies' point guard of the future, but Joseph could be an interesting backup down the road. He should've stayed in school, but there's raw talent there.


    50. Philadelphia 76ers (From New Orleans)

    Keith Benson | C | Oakland

    The Sixers continue to need bigs and Benson is one of the biggest players in the draft. He's skilled and a very good athlete for his size; he just needs to get stronger and improve his motor.


    51. Portland Trail Blazers

    Diante Garrett | PG | Iowa State

    The Blazers are looking for a point guard and Garrett has turned a lot of heads with his excellent play in draft camps.


    52. Detroit Pistons

    E'Twaun Moore | SG | Purdue

    Moore is one of the toughest players in the draft. He's an excellent shooter and can even play a little point guard. He's probably a bit of a steal at this point.


    53. Orlando Magic

    Scotty Hopson | SG | Tennessee

    Hopson is not only one of the best athletes in the draft, but he also can shoot the ball. He was inconsistent at Tennessee, but the talent is still there.


    54. Cleveland Cavaliers (From Oklahoma City via Miami)

    Jereme Richmond | SF | Illinois

    Richmond is an athlete and little else right now. But as a long-term project, he still has major upside.


    55. Boston Celtics

    Jamine Peterson | SF | NBDL

    Peterson is one of the best scorers in the draft. He's a great athlete as well. He may have some question marks about his background, but the Celtics have never shied away from players like him.


    56. Los Angeles Lakers

    Brad Wanamaker | PG | Pittsburgh

    Wannamaker is a pure playmaker who is coming off a great career at Pittsburgh. I know it's another point guard for the Lakers, but his toughness is tough to pass up at this point.


    57. Dallas Mavericks

    Michael Dunigan | C | Oregon

    Dunigan has size and athletic ability. Oh, and he dominated the Estonian league this year. Need I say more?


    58. Los Angeles Lakers (From Miami)

    Julyan Stone | SG | UTEP

    The Lakers like big point guards and they like defenders, and Stone fits the bill. Just don't ask him to score.


    59. San Antonio Spurs

    DeAndre Liggins | SG | Kentucky

    The Spurs love guys who can defend multiple positions, and Liggins can do just that.


    60. Sacramento Kings (From Chicago via Milwaukee)

    Andrew Goudelock | SG | College of Charleston

    The Kings like shooters, and Goudelock is one of the best in the draft.

    I thought it was interesting that the Pacers seemingly like markieff more than marcus.

    Humm wow a lot of people slipping... surprised Kawhi falls that far... I guess Phx is trying to sure up their 4 spot... Robin isn't getting it done.

    Cool that we will have our pick of Burks, Brooks, and Singleton... I like that scenario... can't go wrong either way...

    Question about the 2nd, would u guys rather have Charles Jenkins, Corey Joesph...

    Interesting prospect is Gorgio from Gerogia... big guy with potential...

    Kawhi is what he is a defensive stopper a role player. No way in hell i draft him top 8 if i had a ton of holes in my team like most top 8 teams do.

    Yeah, he has improved his shot alot... and he is a slasher... and can get to the rim.... didn't think he would be a good fit for Washington because of his shooting skills but I think he can hit a decent amount of open jumpers, and he is only what 19 right?

    Wow, Tbird really does seem to know something we don't, Ford goes off what he hears.

    And in the second round, this guy from Hofstra, I don't know a thing about him, but if we want a poor mans Jimmer, we should go for Talor Battle. He has all the range Jimmer does, is clutch as hell, and did it in the Big Ten.

    Under this scenario, the Pacers' three biggest targets (Fredette, Klay Thompson and Markieff Morris)
    Did we know this before?

    Most people think we need a PG out of this draft, if we don't take Jimmer most believe we will take one in the 2nd... those that might be available are Morris, Jenkins, Joesph...

    Morris will probably be gone, and Joseph is supposed to go later.. more of a need pic anticipation I would think.

    I do think Taylor will workout with some teams over the summer though it will be interesting to see if he makes any teams

    I think he's worked out with just about every NBA team. Every day on twitter he is like, going to sacramento and golden state today and tomorrow. And then he goes to charlotte and washington a few days later.

    I really hope he gets drafted, he worked so hard at PSU for all 4 years with little help.

    I was ready to dismiss this, thinking because we're hearing Burks now, it must be a smokescreen.

    But then I went and looked back at Chad Ford's 7.0 mock draft from last year and he had the Pacers picking... Paul George.

    So this may be right on the money. Who knows?

    Jenkins is insane. I didn't watch him live but my friend did and he swears by him. Insane scorer.

    The question I have is if Burks does fall this far, will Bird jump on him and keep him, or look to flip him to another team for more assets as we did with Bayless. I would expect we keep him unless one of the assets we can get is an additional draft pick in next years draft.

    He called Rush and Hibbert in 7.1/2008 as well.

    I think Larry will keep him. He did invite Burks to a late workout.

    And Hans. Ford's usually REALLY close with his mock drafts when we're this late in the game.
