Douby sounds nice. He's local, he can shoot and score. We haven't had that option at the PG in a while. However I don't know if he is a good defender considering how thin he is. We need a Wade stopper

Rodriguez could be a good, but I don't know of many foreign G's that can come in right away and play, especially defense. Has potential I know and has played well in international ball but I don't know much more.

Rondo may be the safest choice. A tenacious defnender who can run an offense as well. He would be our Wade stopper.

With the second pick I would like a PF but I don't know who will be around. Hilton Armstrong could fall to us, but I am really high on Shawne Williams. He has the the game and the size to play 2-4. With his size and athleticism he could be a dunking machine, and is supposedly a good rebounder and shotblocker. He might be too good to pass up on.

With the 2nd rounder --- who knows. At least this draft seems to be deep (not strong) enough where we could land a nice prosect in round 2. Taking a chance on a foreigner may be the best best. I'm not sure the 2nd rounders chances of making the roster as roster spots should be tight.

I highly doubt Sergio will be there at #22. Douby may not be, either. I really like Rondo and Lowry though. Both are very scrappy guards who always play hard. After watching the lack of heart exhibited in the Miami series by a number of players, a player like them would definitely be a great addition.
