Re: 2008 Mock Draft
12. New York-Eric Gordon-SG-Illinois-Not the ideal player for this team as they look to take a big jump into the playoffs next season, but Jamal Crawford, Quentin Richardson, and their backups probably won’t be the long term answers at SG. Gordon might not play much his first couple years, but he is a much better prospect than where they got him, so when they need him, he will be ready to score in bunches.
Other possible picks: Danilo Gallinari would be similar to Gordon in that they could use a young SF for the future, but Gordon has a lot more potential
