Re: The 2008 Mock Draft Thread
The great think about a deep draft is that on paper there should be lots of trades. The Sonics could trade someone like Beasley for Jordan and another piece if they like Jordan better. Someone will naturally be in love with Beasley or Rose or Mayo and be willing to deal up. Meanwhile, you will have teams that love Jordan, Love, Griffin, or Bayless and would find it a bonus to trade down to get their man and another player or cash or pick or whatever.
And just to add in my two cents, I think Love will end up going higher than most people think. Someone will view him a player despite the obvious "combine" downfalls. They will take a shot and hope to get a starting PF that will provide the inside toughness a lot of teams need.
