Sam Amick from SI has said two sources are denying that the Tyreke/Lowry deal is legitimate.

Indiana's working out Michigan State's Draymond Green for a second time today, league sources tell Y! He's a candidate for Pacers at No. 26.
Have the Pacers ever told everyone who they wanted to pick 2 days before the draft, I've heard Draymonds name so much now, I almost can't believe he's the one they want, in any way.
Ill be gutted if he is the guy we draft he wont ever be a starter in the League id much rather take a chance on a guy with some upside than the same old boring safety pick
I have no expectations to find a starter at 26. But I don't think Green's ever even a rotation player. I loved his game at the college level, and from all accounts he's a great kid, so I'd root for him if it happened. But begrudgingly so.
My offseason FA wishlist:
Sergio Rodriguez (backup pg)
Thomas Robinson (backup pf)
Andray Blatche (starting pf - replacing West)
Corey Brewer (starting sg/sf - interchangeable w/ PG)
What would make this selection even worse is the fact that there will be undoubtedly someone more talented than Green available at the 26th pick. Doron Lamb, Jeff Taylor, Marquis Teague, Tony Wroten, Jared Cunningham, Will Barton, Fab Melo, Royce White, Festus Ezeli, Quincy Miller, John Jenkins, etc are some of the players that could be available by the time the Pacers pick. So out of those guys, why select a "glue" guy? Definitely a head scratcher.
Green is a smokescreen.

The Warriors are unlikely to trade up from the No. 7 slot and instead could move down, according to multiple sources.
Golden State is trying to package Dorell Wright with the No. 7 pick to move up.
“Dorell Wright isn’t enough,” one league source said. “The offers in the top five are better.”
The Warriors prefer to trade down for a later pick and a player.
From what I have been reading, the Warriors have been working out Players that would likely fall in the mid-Teens.
I'm guessing that the Warriors could probably net one of the Rockets picks in the teens.

If anyone is interested and thinks Draymond Green might be a Pacer, ESPNU is playing a Michigan State v. Gonzaga game 11:30 am tomorrow, I'm DVRing it. Also, theres a Duke v. NC game 4:30 am tomorrow morning, tons of draftees in this game!
better place to see games is espn3 on xbox love they have almost every game played in the college season on espn networks(a lot that weren't on TV also). Has a game of almost every draft spect and most guys have at least 5-10 judt takes a long time to find sometimes lol.
Memphis is really the only team not having games. But if you look hard you can find them on the Internet. lol

Yeah, if the Pacers really do like Draymond Green, they haven't been keeping a secret about it at all. Since I assume Bird is still making a large portion of the selection call, it could just be one of his typical smokescreens.

Pre-draft workout for tomorrow, June 27, includes Darius Johnson-Odom (Marquette) and Marquis Teague (Kentucky). #PacersDraft

Detroit has traded Ben Gordon and a protected future first-round pick to Charlotte for Corey Maggette, league sources tell Y! Sports.
It's their 2013 1st Rounder.
So maybe these wild theories of DC bringing a first round pick aren't so wild at all.

im baffled as to how Dumars still has a job that deal is terrible for the pistons
Yeah, the only positive is that they pay Gordon way too much and Maggette is an expiring.
Good trade for the Bobcats getting a first rounder and freeing up space for MKG or Barnes to be the clear #1 SF on the team.
THANK YOU MICHAEL JORDAN!
