30. Blazers (via Pistons) Alexander Johnson (Florida State, 6-10, 230, Jr.)

Jeff you know your shit. I've been telling everyone how high Leon Powe will go, biggest steal in the draft IMO. I think James White will climb into the 1st round as well though, at the expense of Richard Roby.

The only problems I see are:
Shawne Williams too high.
Marcus Williams too low (although this may happen)
Maurice Ager at 15 to New Orleans? I think they will go for Hilton Armstrong for sure.

if the Sixers end up with Marcus Williams at 13 they'll be the luckiest team in the entire draft.

I know I'm probably in the minority here, but I don't see whats so special about Marcus Williams, other than the fact that he's a past first point. He seems to be a poor man's Jason Kidd. I mean he shot 37%, 40%, and 40% his 3 years in COLLEGE, Jason Kidd was at 46% and 47%, but in the pros he's dropped to a career %40 shooter. I don't know the exact statistics, but I don't believe many players improve their shooting from college to the league and to top it off he's not as big or as quick from what I've seen.

I guess what I'm saying is the 13th spot sounds about right.

On a team like Atlanta or Toronto that wants to run he would be sick.

Yes! We Get Pittsnoggle

This is about the third or fourth year of seeing Tiago Splitter in the mock drafts. Can we just exclude him permanately from all mock drafts forever?

I like this pick for them

J O'Neal, Granger, Collin is a good core to start to rebuild with.

is aldridge really a no. 1?
 
NBA Comparison: Channing Frye

Strengths: Considered the top bigman prospect in the country ... Extremely smooth post player ... Has excellent touch within 12 feet of the basket ... Soft hands ... Excels on the offensive end with great fundamentals and footwork ... Put on 25 pounds of muscle between his freshman and sophomore seasons and it's made him a much more aggressive and confident post player ... Runs the floor especially well for a (near) 7 footer ... Good transition player ... Good shot blocker, with his long arms he should get a fair number of blocks on the next level ... Long arms and a quick leaper ... Very versatile big man ... Has many effective moves in the low post including a go-to jump hook. Has even developed a sky hook in his sophomore year ... Great at positioning himself in the post ... Has nice form on his jumper, range is developing ... Positions himself well for rebounds and excels on the offensive glass ...

Weaknesses: In high school he developed a reputation for being soft and not showing enough heart. Scouts still have some question marks about his toughness inside. He is vastly improved in that area, but still struggles against big and strong players on the NCAA level ... Not a physically imposing player inside, plays more a finesse game. Needs to get nastier ... Should still add an additional 10-15 pounds ... Not an out of this world leaper, but solid ... Not an extremely emotional player, which is both a positive and a negative ... Passing and ball handling are decent but can improve ... Also has been injury prone (missed half of his freshman year after a hip injury that required surgery) ... Must develop a killer instinct, more intensity ... Free throw shooting is just average ...

Better than some I seen.

chains5000 06-10-2006 07:19 AM

No sergio rodriguez?

Da KO King 06-10-2006 07:20 AM

Good pick up Chains. I thought something seemed off. No Josh Boone either.

Ricardo Tubbs 06-10-2006 11:53 AM

That's a horrible mock. Sergio, Rudy Fernandez, Thabo Sefolosha and Marquinhos are all missing, yet somehow Splitter is on there, and Leon Powe and Kevin Pittsnogle will not go anywhere near that high.

Heelcrazy2 06-10-2006 01:51 PM

William
 
I would be overjoyed if Brewer went to Orlando. I think he would be a good fit.


BTW: Williams to Philly would be a great pickup for them.

roth15syr 06-10-2006 03:44 PM

If Bargnani falls to the Hawks, I guarantee a Braves-like fan base in ATL within 5 years...

ThaKid 06-17-2006 06:09 PM
