Either Morrison or Gay will go to the Bobcats at 3, I believe it will me Morrison.
That leaves Foye, Gay and Thomas for the T-wolves at 6. Foye has been killing everybody for the past two weeks now non-stop so I believe the wolves will select him (McHale is an idiot so Gay and Thomas could fall here as well)
However, Thomas has not worked out for anybody which tends to rub GM's the wrong way, so he will fall.
At 7 the Celtics are deciding between M.Williams and Rondo I believe they take M.Williams Ainge has been throwing out too much negativity towards M.Williams so much so that it must be a smokescreen, if he takes Rondo (who he has been pumping up, i'll be shocked)
At 8 the Rockets need a 3 in the worst way so Gay would be their pick because I don't think the Bobcats will take him over Morrison.
at 9 just look at G.S. roster they have two huge holes-SF and C.
with Gay gone at 8 they will take O'Bryant
That leaves Thomas and his bad agents to fall to 10 with SEA, they should have learned from G.Green last year that not working out and refusing to work out vs. the other top players when you do work out is not the smartest way of going about business.
As for your Collins comment, I like him too but 3 on 3 work outs don't do him justice nor do shooting drills. He is a player but this draft has too many shooters for someone to take him in Rd.1 as S.Brown and Gibson worked their way into the first round he and Ager will drop out.
Maybe before you give me "draft 101" you should know what you are talking about. First Bargnani will most likely go first overall because Collangelo likes versitial players. Second a team in the top 3 guarenteed Tyrus Thomas and the only logical team there is the Bulls so Thomas goes 2, not 10. Third, Morrison isn't going to the Bobcats because MJ doesn't want him and hasn't even invited him for a second workout. He wants Brandon Roy and he will take him. Fourth Portland wants Morrison and might even trade up to get him so they take him at 4. Five, even if Atlanta "promised" Sheldon Williams and take him that leaves two of the top prospects to slide out of the top 6. Minnesota decides between Gay and Aldridge and Boston even though they antisipated taking a PG, with an elite prospect either Gay or Aldridge left they would take one of them in a hurry.
