James Johnson slipping?
Seen him now as low as 22 in ESPN's. A big SF with just about every skill you can ask for except the 3 pt shot. Good defense, handles, vision, post moves, mid-range game, rebounding, etc. Add to the fact he's only been playing organized basketball for 6 years. Oh and he has a 21-0 kickboxing record as well as several world karate titles for his age group.

The knock is he's heavy, but the rest of his combine measurements are all pretty much what you expect out of an SF. I can see him being very good at either position.

His college performances, although not bad, show nothing of what kind of player he can be because he was on a completely stacked team with an unprepared coach who never got them on the same page.

He will be a poor man's Chuck and lots of teams will regret passing on him.

A lot of talk saying teams (specifically Phoenix, Detroit and Chicago) have been giving him bad talk to make him drop. Plus, these "experts" for the most part are morons.

He won't drop past 14. He's the #1 target for the Suns and Bulls.

the raps might even take him at 9. i'm hoping we take derozan and somehow aquire a pick in the 12-14 range to land johnson as well.

Earl Clark is dropping as well. I was really hoping that the nets can grab this kid. Clark and Johnson are going to be stars in this league. These teams are sleeping on these two

Re: James Johnson slipping?
I am pretty sure Johnson will not fall past the lottery in this draft. I'm hoping he falls to 16 on a long shot though. I hope Henderson or Johnson are there at 16.
