    Dario Saric posted an impressive line against South Korea in the U19 Championships. 32 points on 13/19 shooting (2/4 from 3, 4/7 from the FT line), 12 rebounds (4 offensive, 8 defensive) and 12 assists.

    Mislav Brzoja, a 6'5 SG, also contributed 21 points on 8/14 shooting (1/3 from 3, 4/4 from the line), 10 rebounds and 3 assists.

    Ivan Bender, a 6'9 C born in '95, scored 21 points on 10/13 shooting, grabbed 4 rebounds and had 3 assists in 23 minutes.

    South Korea was led by Sangjae Kang, a 6'8 PF, that scored 35 points on 14/19 shooting.

    It doesn't seem like a lot of defense was played in this game. Croatia won 109 - 86.

    On the other hand, Senegal shot 23.8% against Australia earlier today. Yes, they shot below 25%. I don't know how that's possible.

    Stefan Pot, a 6'5 PG, had an interesting game against Brazil. He only shot 2/7 from the field but scored managed to go to the line 8 times and convert on 5 of his FTs in order to score 9 points. But he grabbed 13 rebounds (2 offensive, 11 defensive), dished 5 assists and also had 5 steals to boot. I'll keep an eye on him to see if this was a fluke or not.

    Lithuania - Czech Republic and China - Russia are on right now. Lithuania and Czech Republic are tied at 42 at the half. China is ahead 33 to 27 against Russia. China's Zhou Qi already has 13 points (on 5/8 shooting), 9 rebounds, 5 blocks and 1 assist. Desyatnikov has not played yet.

    I'm still trying to find a way to watch those games
    Kang called his shot. He said pre tourney people will learn his name. From everything I have read he is a legit spect. Sucks Croatia didn't bring all there best players.

    Giannis wants to play right away and that's scaring teams. I'd love for the Pacers to draft him.

    Yeah, Hezonja would be nice. But was Kang the one that said this? I read this article on fiba.com -> http://www.fiba.com/pages/eng/fc/new...5941/arti.html

    Fords got a 2nd round mock now.

    53: Jackie Carmichael

    I think we can agree that that would be a best case scenario!

    Other notables:
    Tony Mitchel at 42 (would be a great pickup this low)
    Livio Jean-Charles 45 (would like this kid)
    Myck Kabongo 48
    Ray McCallum 51 (meh, but I think the Pacers like him)
    Holy ****. We'd win the draft if that happened!

    Russia - China update:

    Zhou Qi has 25 points (on 10/16 shooting, 5/5 FTs), 15 rebounds (4 offensive, 11 defensive), 8 blocks and 2 assists. He also has 2 turnovers (with the amount of touches he has that's a good number). He has played 30 minutes so far.

    China has fielded a very big team with 7'1 Zhou at C, 6'10 Zhao at PF (who is really a Center) and 6'6 Gao at SF (who is really an undersized PF). Russian went with 6'9 Kalygin at C (who is really a PF), and 6'7 Ilnitskiy at PF.

    China is leading 51 - 50 and the match will go down the wire.

    China beat Russia 61 to 59.

    Zhou Qi's statline: 28 points on 11/19 shooting (6/7 from the FT line), 17 rebounds (4 offensive, 13 defensive), 9 blocks, 2 assists and 2 turnovers in 38 minutes. He played almost the whole game but it was a close game and he carried China.

    Edit: I forgot to mention. Zhou Qi was born in 1996 and thus is only 17 years old. Still, he is 7'1 and his production speaks for itself.

    Source: http://insider.espn.go.com/nba/draft...-mock-draft-70

    Chad Ford Mock 7.1

    1Nerlens NoelCleveland Cavaliers
    COLLEGE: KentuckyAGE: 19HT: 7-0WT: 219POS: C
    Analysis: Noel has been my top pick in every mock from 1.0 to 7.0. The Cavs, however, have yet to tip their hand. Various theories about Cleveland's attachment to Noel, Alex Len, Anthony Bennett, Ben McLemore, Otto Porter and Victor Oladipo abound.

    Here's what I know as of midnight Wednesday evening.

    The Cavs' top option is to trade the No. 1 overall pick for a combination of a veteran plus a 2014 first-round pick. If they can pull that off, they'll move the pick. If they can't, they'll keep attempting to move whoever they draft until all their options have been exercised.

    And if they keep the pick? General manager Chris Grant has been a Nerlens Noel guy all year. Other people in the front office are pushing for Len. I even heard, somewhat convincingly, that owner Dan Gilbert loves Oladipo!

    With a split front office, the final decision comes to Grant. I think he's a Noel guy … but we'll all find out whether I'm reading the tea leaves correctly around 7:35 p.m.

    PLAYER CARD
    2Victor OladipoOrlando Magic
    COLLEGE: IndianaAGE: 21HT: 6-4WT: 213POS: SG

    Analysis: I continue to hear that if the Cavs pass on Noel, the Magic are leaning strongly toward selecting Noel with the No. 2 pick in the draft.

    If Noel is off the board? Things get a little tougher. Some favor Oladipo. Others McLemore. While McLemore is a stronger offensive player, Oladipo's defense and his crazy motor hold a strong appeal for the Magic. Culture matters in Orlando and I think Oladipo trumps McLemore by an edge.

    PLAYER CARD
    3Otto PorterWashington Wizards
    COLLEGE: GeorgetownAGE: 20HT: 6-9WT: 198POS: SF
    Analysis: The constant that was Otto Porter has become less constant as several reports claim the Wizards now favor Anthony Bennett. I've heard both from inside the Wizards. Clearly, like most front offices in the league right now, there are two different factions. I continue to hear that Porter is the safer pick and better fits the team's culture and they will lean that way.

    PLAYER CARD

    4Ben McLemoreCharlotte Bobcats
    COLLEGE: KansasAGE: 20HT: 6-5WT: 189POS: SG

    Analysis: Some information is starting to trickle out of Charlotte. The team is looking at Len, Bennett, Porter and Cody Zeller. In fact, I think Zeller might be in the mix more than I once believed. But my most convincing source persuaded me the Bobcats won't pass on McLemore if he's here.

    PLAYER CARD
    5Alex LenPhoenix Suns
    COLLEGE: MarylandAGE: 20HT: 7-1WT: 225POS: C
    Analysis: The Suns' primary need is a scoring wing, but if Oladipo and McLemore are off the board, don't be surprised if the Suns grab Len here. New general manager Ryan McDonough is a fan of Len's, and with Marcin Gortat heading into the last year of his deal, Len quite literally could become the centerpiece of the franchise. Michael Carter-Williams and Zeller also are real possibilities here.

    PLAYER CARD
    6Michael Carter-WilliamsNew Orleans Pelicans
    COLLEGE: SyracuseAGE: 21HT: 6-6WT: 184POS: PG

    Analysis: The Pelicans might be tempted by Bennett, but they have a bigger need at point guard. While they like Austin Rivers, Carter-Williams is more of the pure point guard they think could be the perfect set-up man for Anthony Davis. Trey Burke is an option here as is C.J. McCollum, but it looks like Carter-Williams might be the best fit.

    PLAYER CARD
    7C.J. McCollumSacramento Kings
    COLLEGE: LehighAGE: 21HT: 6-3WT: 197POS: PG

    Analysis: The Kings are engaged in trade talks with a number of teams, and they might move this pick. If they keep it, McCollum makes sense. The team wants a point guard who can shoot the ball. That was supposed to be Jimmer Fredette two years ago, but it looks like the team might be moving on. I also wouldn't be surprised if Utah moved up to No. 7 to land McCollum.

    PLAYER CARD
    8Anthony BennettDetroit Pistons
    COLLEGE: UNLVAGE: 20HT: 6-8WT: 240POS: PF

    Analysis: For a third year in a row, the Pistons are hoping that one of the top seven players on the board takes a surprise dip on draft night. They might get their wish. While the team is after a point guard, Bennett might be too good to pass up. He can play both the 4 and the 3 and gives them another great scoring option in their frontcourt. Carter-Williams would be another serious option here.

    PLAYER CARD
    9Kentavious Caldwell-PopeMinnesota Timberwolves
    COLLEGE: GeorgiaAGE: 20HT: 6-6WT: 204POS: SG

    Analysis: Of all the picks in this mock draft, this is the one I'm most sure of. We've had Caldwell-Pope here for over a month and we're not moving him unless Minnesota trades up to No. 2, 4 or 5 to land Oladipo.

    PLAYER CARD
    10Trey BurkePortland Trail Blazers
    COLLEGE: MichiganAGE: 20HT: 6-1WT: 187POS: PG

    Updated 1:00 PM EST: Burke moved from No. 12 to 10.

    Analysis: The Blazers are hoping McCollum or Caldwell-Pope are on the board. But if they aren't? It will come down to Burke, Steven Adams and Cody Zeller. It's a tough three-way race, but I hear that the Blazers might lean toward Burke, in part, because he's a trade asset. Given his size, Burke might struggle to play in the same backcourt as Damian Lillard, but the Blazers had success with Lillard and Eric Maynor last year and feel it will work out if they can't trade him.


    PLAYER CARD
    11Cody ZellerPhiladelphia 76ers
    COLLEGE: IndianaAGE: 20HT: 7-0WT: 230POS: C

    Analysis: Zeller is getting a lot of buzz now with the Bobcats, Suns and Blazers. We've had him here in every mock draft, and this is the first time I feel like he won't be there. If the Bobcats or Suns swap picks with the T-Wolves, Zeller could be their guy. I'm told Sergey Karasev, Kelly Olynyk and Mason Plumlee are options here, but probably only if Zeller is off the board.

    PLAYER CARD
    12Steven AdamsOklahoma City Thunder via Toronto Raptors
    COLLEGE: PittsburghAGE: 19HT: 7-0WT: 255POS: C

    Updated 1:00 PM EST: Stevens moved from No. 10 to 12.

    Analysis: The Thunder have a lot of interest in Steven Adams. He's raw, but he has as much talent as any big in the draft if teams are patient. Sergey Karasev and Kelly Olynyk are other possibilities and multiple sources say the Thunder are actively trying to move up in the draft.

    PLAYER CARD
    13Sergey KarasevDallas Mavericks
    COUNTRY: RussiaAGE: 19HT: 6-7WT: 197POS: SF
    Analysis: The Mavericks continue to lean heavily toward trading the pick (if they haven't already). According to various reports, one scenario floating around has them swapping picks with the Cavs. If that happens, it's almost certainly to be for Karasev. There are several other teams who are after Karasev, including the Bucks, Hawks and Nets, and they could be great trade partners. If the Mavericks keep the pick, Michael Carter-Williams and Dennis Schroeder also would be possibilities here.

    PLAYER CARD
    14Lucas NogueiraUtah Jazz
    COUNTRY: BrazilAGE: 20HT: 7-0WT: 220POS: C
    Analysis: Not much has changed here since the last mock. If C.J. McCollum, Trey Burke or Michael Carter-Williams (probably in that order) are on the board, the Jazz go point guard. If they're gone? The team isn't in love with any of the point guards left. They also need bigs (both Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap are free agents this summer) and it looks as if they're open to using the draft to help address that need. Nogueira isn't the only guy they'll look at here. Kelly Olynyk and Mason Plumlee also have a shot. But I think Nogueira is the most intriguing of the group.

    PLAYER CARD
    15Shane LarkinMilwaukee Bucks
    COLLEGE: MiamiAGE: 20HT: 6-0WT: 171POS: PG
    Analysis: If the draft plays out this way, the Bucks are looking at three names -- Larkin, Dennis Schroeder or Glen Rice Jr., who came in for a second workout Tuesday. It's hard to say which way the Bucks are leaning, but it looks like Larkin has the slight edge.

    PLAYER CARD
    16Kelly OlynykBoston Celtics
    COLLEGE: GonzagaAGE: 22HT: 7-0WT: 234POS: PF

    Analysis: The Celtics are in full rebuilding mode, but I'm not sure how that affects the draft. I keep hearing four names: Adams, Dennis Schroeder, Larkin or Olynyk. Over the course of the past 24 hours, it seems like Olynyk is gaining momentum there. He's a very skilled big man who would add size and scoring to the Celtics' front line.

    PLAYER CARD
    17Giannis AntetokounmpoAtlanta Hawks via Houston Rockets
    COUNTRY: GreeceAGE: 18HT: 6-9WT: 215POS: SF

    Analysis: I continue to hear Antetokounmpo's name here. The Hawks can stash him overseas, let him develop, and in a few years he could be the steal of the draft. Or we'll all forget they drafted him. Either scenario probably works for Atlanta.

    PLAYER CARD
    18Shabazz MuhammadAtlanta Hawks
    COLLEGE: UCLAAGE: 20HT: 6-6WT: 222POS: SF


    Analysis: There's a point at which a player's reward outweighs the risk. I'm not sure where Muhammad's floor is, but it has to be pretty close. Yes, there are flaws in his game, but at some point you can't ignore his scoring abilities. The Hawks have been doing a lot of research on Muhammad the past few days. Plumlee, San Diego State's Jamaal Franklin and Michigan's Tim Hardaway Jr. also are possibilities.

    PLAYER CARD
    19Reggie BullockCleveland Cavaliers via Los Angeles Lakers
    COLLEGE: North CarolinaAGE: 22HT: 6-7WT: 200POS: SF

    Analysis: If the Cavs grab Noel at No. 1, look for them to add a small forward or shooter with the second first-round pick. They would love to get their hands on Karasev if they could; they are trying to move up to grab him. Moving to No. 13 seems to be the consensus of where they need to get to, and it looks as if they are willing to eat Shawn Marion's salary for a year to get there in a trade with Dallas. If they can't get to No. 13, Bullock is another shooter on whom they really are high. Bullock shot 44 percent from 3-point range this season and has the size to play both wing positions.

    PLAYER CARD
    20Mason PlumleeChicago Bulls
    COLLEGE: DukeAGE: 23HT: 6-10WT: 238POS: PF

    Analysis: Every mock draft, we alternate between a big and a wing for the Bulls. They need both. Plumlee is an interesting case. Lots of teams like him, few love him. But I think it would be hard for the Bulls to pass on Plumlee's value at No. 20. Tim Hardaway Jr. and Jamaal Franklin are other possibilities.

    PLAYER CARD
    21Isaiah CanaanUtah Jazz via Golden State Warriors
    SCHOOL: Murray StateAGE: 22HT: 6-0WT: 188POS: PG

    Analysis: If the Jazz pass on a point guard at No. 14, they have to be content with what's left at No. 21. This one might come down to Schroeder and Canaan. Schroeder is bigger, but Canaan is a much better scorer. It's really tough to pinpoint who they'd choose, but I think Canaan has the edge. Nogueira and France's Rudy Gobert also are potential picks here if the Jazz go with a point guard at No. 14.

    PLAYER CARD
    22Dennis SchroederBrooklyn Nets
    COUNTRY: GermanyAGE: 19HT: 6-2WT: 165POS: PG


    Updated 1:00 PM EST: Schroeder moved up to No. 22 from 23.

    Analysis: The Nets have been looking for a backup point guard for a while, and if Schroeder falls to them, expect them to snatch him up. He's a bit raw, but his length and athleticism are alluring. Big man Gorgui Dieng is also a possibility here.


    PLAYER CARD
    23Gorgui DiengIndiana Pacers
    COLLEGE: LouisvilleAGE: 23HT: 6-11WT: 230POS: C

    Updated 1:00 PM EST: Dieng moved down to No. 23 from 22.

    Analysis: The Pacers would prefer a point guard, but in this scenario they are all off the board. Dieng is an interesting project at center. Allen Crabbe, Tim Hardaway Jr. and Tony Snell are also possibilities here.


    PLAYER CARD
    24Jamaal FranklinNew York Knicks
    COLLEGE: San Diego St.AGE: 22HT: 6-5WT: 191POS: SG

    Analysis: Franklin is super-athletic and can play multiple positions. He's not a need pick per se. The Knicks could really use a power forward, but Franklin has more upside and adds a toughness that Knicks fans will love. Tony Mitchell also is a possibility here.

    PLAYER CARD
    25Tim Hardaway Jr.Los Angeles Clippers
    COLLEGE: MichiganAGE: 21HT: 6-6WT: 199POS: SG

    Analysis: The Clippers are going for it and are going to need all the help they can get. That might force them to take a veteran guard who can give them shooting and minutes. Hardaway is a coach's favorite, and I could see the Clippers thinking he'd make a great fit at No. 25.

    PLAYER CARD
    26Allen CrabbeMinnesota Timberwolves via Memphis Grizzlies
    COLLEGE: CalAGE: 21HT: 6-6WT: 197POS: SG

    Analysis: Minnesota wants shooting and they need help at the 2 and 3. I think they could grab another shooter, even if the take Caldwell-Pope at No. 9. Crabbe has the size to play the 3 and would add another target for Ricky Rubio. Rudy Gobert also is a possibility here.

    PLAYER CARD
    27Tony SnellDenver Nuggets
    COLLEGE: New MexicoAGE: 21HT: 6-7WT: 198POS: SG

    Analysis: The Nuggets are in danger of losing Andre Iguodalathis summer after he opted to become a free agent. What they really need is a shooter. Snell and Ricky Ledo are the best shooters left on the board.

    PLAYER CARD
    28Rudy GobertSan Antonio Spurs
    COUNTRY: FranceAGE: 20HT: 7-2WT: 238POS: PF

    Analysis: The Spurs need size and have never shied away from taking international players. What Gobert lacks in athletic ability, he makes up with extreme length for his position. The Spurs also can stash him overseas if they need the cash.

    PLAYER CARD
    29Ricky LedoOklahoma City Thunder
    COLLEGE: ProvidenceAGE: 20HT: 6-6WT: 197POS: SG

    Analysis: This might be a bit of a reach. But the Thunder have been looking for an elite shooting guard, and Ledo is as talented as several players in the lottery. He has lots of off-court issues, but the Thunder might try to rehabilitate him in their excellent D-League franchise.

    PLAYER CARD
    30Erick GreenPhoenix Suns via Miami Heat
    SCHOOL: Virginia TechAGE: 22HT: 6-3WT: 178POS: PG

    Analysis: Green was one of the best scorers in the country this season and some teams think he can make the transition to point guard in the pros. The Suns are down on last year's lottery pick Kendall Marshall. Green could provide some scoring punch to the backcourt.

    Updated 1:00 PM EST: Dieng moved down to No. 23 from 22.

    Analysis: The Pacers would prefer a point guard, but in this scenario they are all off the board. Dieng is an interesting project at center. Allen Crabbe, Tim Hardaway Jr. and Tony Snell are also possibilities here.

    Analysis: Green was one of the best scorers in the country this season and some teams think he can make the transition to point guard in the pros. The Suns are down on last year's lottery pick Kendall Marshall. Green could provide some scoring punch to the backcourt.

    Dieng would be a solid pick, as would Schroeder, Green, Canaan, or Bullock.

    PS if the Nets-Celtics blockbuster goes through and the C's plan to keep Rondo, pick 22 would be theirs and I'd think they'd be unlikely to go for a PG.

    Hearing Nets 22nd pick in this year's draft is NOT in play in Celtics-Nets talk. Future picks for Boston.

    I say select Dieng at 23 if he's there. Can never have enough low post defense.

    Buy the Nuggets pick at 27 and take Erick Green.

    boom! Then look to trade Plums probably.
    Lance + Starting SG = Awesome

    Now really free Lance!

    I really liked Dieng, but he will not be drafted by the Pacers, book it.

    Here's something interesting that I found in this U19 Championship.

    Côte d'Ivoire's roster consists of 2 PGs, 5 PFs and 5 Cs. The most weird thing? Blaise Kouakou, one of their 2 PGs, is taller than 3 of his team's PFs. Kouakou is 6'3 while Alpha Toure, Cyril Adjei and Ismaël Meite are all 6'2.

    Don't ask me why they are considered Power Forwards when they are 6'2. Or why they didn't bring a SG or a SF with them. I have no freakin idea

    Well three different mocks (though they keep changing by the minute) had Canaan's name popping up for the Pacers today. Who's knows if they're playing pop-a-mole or the actual picks are starting to tighten up.

    I'm assuming they are still considering Green a 2, as he's in a Russel Westbrook situation coming out of college (2 guard that will be expected to be a 1).

    Not clear, though.

    Becoming harder to map a scenario where UNLV's Anthony Bennett doesn't slide on board. He could leave Portland with choice at No. 10.

    if Bennett slides far enough I hope Pritchard gets on the phone to see if there's a way to get him that makes sense. Our culture'd be great for him and he could easily be West's eventual replacement.

    Choice?? There is no choice if he is on the board at 10 you take him no ands if or buts. That team had the worst bench scoring in the NBA get one of the best scorers in the draft no brainer then it would actually make some sense to to have an Aldridge replacement if he is really wanting out.
