I think it will be a Rick Pitino coached player. I'm guessing it's Clark which would me very happy.

I like the idea of getting Terrance Williams or Earl Clark.

I hope we get Williams; I read a comment on a bonnell article that someone had heard he was coming back for a 2nd workout. That would make me happy, I just hope he's not gone before 12.

Tim Thomas always gets a bad rep b/c he's overpaid (no disputing that). However I will say Tim Thomas is a decent player. Overrated due to his salary, underrated due to popular opinion of the guy.

Yeah, I'm with you...according to DX his best case is a poor Man's Andre Iguodala. More passing helps get us to Larry Ball!+

LB loves Tim Thomas because he can facilitate the offense like Boris. It's not a coincidence we're picking up good passers and it wouldn't surprise me if Williams is the pick.

BTW, last I read he was coming to a "meeting", not a workout.

Didn't think it deserved it's own thread but interesting thoughts from NBADraft. net mock draft 3.0...

"MJ and Larry Brown appear to have a different philosophy on the draft. MJ wanted Lopez last year, but Brown convinced him to take Augustin. Neither has much patience for players that aren't ready to contribute. Hansbrough has the UNC connection plus the ability to come in and contribute immediately. If Henderson is available he also makes a lot of sense, despite being a Duke player."

After yesterday, I highly doubt we pass on Henderson or T-Will for Hansborough but the part about MJ & Lopez vs LB & Augustin is interesting... I wish MJ had won!

I would trust LB's judgment over MJ's, any time anywhere.

Lopez was in ROY talks for some time last year, so its not like it would have been a bad thing. However, if we had drafted Lopez, Either the Diop or Diaw trade would have never happened.

There's no scientific method when it comes to the NBA draft. So much of it is sheer luck unless your name is LeBron or Melo, etc. Given LB's experience and expertise I'd rather him have the green light then a hunch MJ has.

Re: 1 week to go until draft day any last thoughts
 
after reading some of the nets fans blogs and there website there is no way there going to pass on t-will so it will probly be henderson with the 12 pick.

Timmeh 06-23-2009 12:58 PM

Re: 1 week to go until draft day any last thoughts
 
Here's what I've seen:

DraftExpress: Gerald Henderson
FoxSports: Tyreke Evans (WTF????)
NBADraft.net: Tyler Hansbrough (Really??)
FanHouse: DeMar DeRozan (Omg)
LestersLegends: Wayne Ellington (*smacks forehead*)
InsideHoops: Earl Clark (A little better)

So, nobody knows who we're picking.

Re: 1 week to go until draft day any last thoughts
 
I think at this point it's just going to be hoping we draft a potential pro-league stud. Like I said before, no real science about it.
