Has a top 5 team committed to Shelden Williams?

"Sources said that (Shelden) Williams has pulled out of scheduled workouts with teams in the second half of the top 10 - including Minnesota, which picks sixth - indicating that a team in the top five has made a commitment to Williams that it will take him." Philadelphia Inquirer

I believe it is Atlanta.

But why would they be morons for drafting a power forward (which they sorely need)?

kentatm 06-11-2006 04:49 PM

he's a fool to do that. what happens if whatever team he thinks wants him pulls a trade with the draft pick? he'll be SOL and on his way down the list.

Atlanta drafting Williams wouldn't be moronic at all. They need a post presence, and he's one of the best available. Thomas is a toothpick. Baloney is an unknown with a girl's first name. I'd take Williams over either of them. Nothing has sold me on Thomas or Bargnani.

it's atlanta, i saw an article on it somewhere. and i wouldn't be surprised if someone thats projected going in the top 3 slipping and atlanta picking him up shile williams slips out of the top 10

First off, sheldon is a moron for doing what he is allegedly doing. Secondly, of the top 5, Atlanta is the stupidest and most likely to draft sheldon. I heard something awhile ago about them drafting him.

Unregistered 06-11-2006 04:55 PM

It's already been well established that Tips is the moron.

fatboy11 06-11-2006 04:57 PM

Shelden Williams will not slip out of the top 10 under any circumstances.

I'll stake my life on it.

That'd be a sick lineup though

Johnson
Childress
Smith
Williams
Williams

5 forwards

Keep in mind that he's already worked out for:

#7 - Boston
#8 - Houston
#9 - Golden State
#10 - Seattle
#12 - New Orleans
#14 - Utah
#15 - New Orleans

Minnesota (Griffin/Garnett/Blount), Orlando (Howard/Milicic), and Philly (Webber/Daly) are the only lotto teams after the Hawks that he would be "snubbing."

Shelden hasn't even worked out for the Hawks yet so I seriously doubt they would give him a guarantee.

ZHAKIDD532 06-11-2006 05:12 PM

I believe this is all a bunch of BS and he will be somewhere in the 10-15 range...

wang4three 06-11-2006 05:48 PM

It's not stupid. No matter what he's already a lotto pick. So even if the team that garunteed him a pick ends up trading it, he'll still get picked up.

craigthomasb 06-11-2006 05:50 PM

what about top 5 teams looking to trade down to the range which he has allrady worked out for
