Default Mock Draft 1.0

The lottery was simulated and this is who I think and should be drafted in the first round:
1. Heat- Michael Beasley (The best prospect in the draft. Marion would be expected to not be signed. Have to rebuild with Wade and Beasley).

2. Timberwolves- Brook Lopez (The play by Telfair has been really well so that is why they should pass up on Rose. Al Jefferson is turning out be a great player for the forum and pairing him with Lopez would be a great combo down low).

3. Knicks - Derrick Rose (Marbury is expected to be cut or traded and Rose is a good way to start to rebuild a team by keeping guys like David Lee).

4. Grizzlies - DeAndre Jordan (Kwame Brown and Darko are down low...they need a real center. Got really good guards with Lowry, conley, and crittenin)

5. Sonics - Eric Gordon (Gordon with Durant and Green is going to really put the Sonics on the way back to the playoff team. Wilcox, Collison, Petro, and Watson are all playing well and this is a good young nucleus to work with while having a good coach with it)

6. Clippers - OJ Mayo (He was overhyped and the Clippers always make bad choices in the draft. He is a good scorer. He will stay in LA and the organization has to hope he lives up to his potential. If he does, him and Thorton would be a great thing to build on)

7. Bobcats - Marreece Speights (Really good big man out of Florida who some say is better than Horford. Hopefully him and Emeka will be a good combo down low. They better or Jordan could be out)

8. Bucks - Nicolas Batum (would be a good fit with the disappointing Bucks. He is compared to Rudy Gay. Hopefully this extra piece gets the Bucks to the playoffs with a talented team)

9. Pacers - Anthony Randolph (Really versatile PF that can team with Jermaine O'Neal if he stays)

10. Bulls - Roy Hibbert (They got all the pieces and now need a true center. He is the best passing big man in the draft which will help the Bulls out with all of those shooters)

11. Suns (via Hawks) - Donte Greene (Forward who can try to fill in Marion's spot. He has alot of potential.)

12. Kings - Jarryd Bayless (Bayless arguably is the best PG behind Rose in the draft. Udrih is doing a good job but Bayless is too good to pass up on. He has many upsides and a bright future)

13. Trailblazers - Danilo Gallinari (Said to be the most complete player in the draft who plays like a 30 year old vet. He knows the game and can add to the young bright future of the trailblazers. When Oden gets healthy this will be a scary and deep team)

14. Nuggets - Ty Lawson (Fastest player in the draft with the ball. Will fit in with the Nuggets as he can run the floor for them and set up AI and Melo)

15. Nets - Russell Westbrook (Really talented combo guard. If Carter is traded he can step up and fill in that spot while the Nets rebuild for Brooklyn. Building alot of good pieces for LeBron maybe?)

16. 76ers - DJ Augustin (Andre Miller is leading this surprising group to the playoffs, but is not really that young. Miller does have trade value so he might leave)

17. Wizards - Hasheem Thabeet (This team is a really solid center away from being on top of the East. Thabeet will be like a Mutombo. Will change defenses minds on trying to score down low)

18. Raptors - Chase Budinger (He has all the capabilities to become a legit starter in the NBA. Just struggling right now but will find it. Would fit in with the Raptors)

19. Cavaliers - Darren Collison (He should not drop this far but might. Cavs cannot pass up on a guy like this while he can take the ball away from LeBron as a really good PG they need)

20. Warriors - Kevin Love (A big man who can ignite the fast break. Would fit in. He can throw deep passes from the parking lot on the money)

21. Magic - Serge Ibake (He is compared to as Shawn Kemp. Him and Dwight down low would be scary)

22. Mavericks - Bill Walker (If he gets back to the way he was before his injury will be a great steal. Kidd will find him flying to the hoop alot)

23. Jazz - Kosta Koufos (Can beat you inside and outside. Jazz could use another guy like this coming off the bench or even starting with Boozer)

24. Suns - DeVon Hardin (Really good center who can take Shaq's position or back him up)

25. Rockets - Tyler Smith (Really good shooter for when the D concentrates on McGrady and Yao)

26. Hornets - Wayne Ellington (Good scorer to have. Morrris Peterson really is not helping them out)

27. Lakers - Darrel Aurhor (Would fit in with the triangle and add depth to this deep team)

28. Spurs - JaMont Gordon (Versatile gaurd that would fit in. Having a very strong season)

29. Pistons - DaJuan Summers (Forward that can just add even more depth to the Pistons)

30. Celtics - Kyle Weaver (Can play both positions at guard to add depth to this team)
