Grinder's Final Mock Draft

Whats your reasoning with Gallon at 30? I haven't seen him higher than late second round in most mocks. Other than that I thought it was a pretty solid mock. The Thunder might go with Seraphin at 21 instead of Sanders because there have been rumors about OKC liking him a lot even if he isn't coming over right away.

2 things. I think Heyward might just go to the Pacers, being a Butler guy and going on that run that they did in the NCAA's.

And I hope you're right about Crawford to the Nets at #27. I love his game.

I think Gallon's got a ton of potential and has worked really hard to drop a ton of weight. He's a very good shooter, handles the ball well, and has a really unique skill set for a 300 lb. big man. A lot of people said he's too short for the center position, but he measured nearly 6'10" in shoes with a 7'5" wingspan. He's a better rebounder than both Blatche and McGee, and I really believe he could be a starter if he can keep his conditioning up.

A few of these teams with multiple first rounders are really tough to peg because you know there's gonna be trades and likely sales of picks.

Gallon will be a good pick even before 30

Udoh at GSW makes me throw up.

I'm a big fan of Gallon I just think they could grab someone like Brackins or Pondexter at 30 and get Gallon at 35.

Also, I know what you mean about the multiple first round picks. I've been changing my mock every day with those picks.

Monroe is a much better fit for GSW I don't know why they are leaning towards Udoh.

Bledsoe to Celtics would be a nightmare for me. Why pick someone behind our best player going forward? Makes no sense

Larry Sanders might go up to 9 spots earlier imo.

Who is Larry Sanders. Keep seeing his name mentioned by folks. I dont think I ever seen him play and if I did (school played a good team?) I damn sure didnt notice him.

agreed dont like that pick at all that,we will have way too many young PF Randolph,Wright,Tolliver,Udoh.I would much rather get Monroe who can pass as a center once in this system.

While I would take Monroe, I don't think Udoh is any worse, if at all, than Monroe at this point. He's an above average passer himself, can handle the ball as well as Monroe, is better defensively, rebounds just as well, has a better jumper and has a better motor. I feel like Monroe would be must better in a half court oriented system that runs a lot of sets or a triangle offense. The Jazz would probably love to have Monroe, although there's probably a 5% chance he falls there.

Greg Monroe would be perfect.

Jordan Crawford should be much much higher in this wack draft,i only see Evan Turner being better than him at 2 gaurd,who ever gets him is gonna be getting a steal,and all the teams thats taking bums like Xavier Henry are gonna regret not taking him.
