Arrow Mock Draft Central and Draft Lottery Talk.

This thread will be for all the mock drafts that will appear after the lottery tonight.

I will make one for what would happen if I was the GM of every team and one for what I think will actually happen.

Perhaps this will stop all of the uneducated kids from posting dumb threads on what they think should happen as they will read mine and think before they post garbage.

For now, let's just talk about the possibilities to pass time.

Jeff, I think this should be stickied.

I know he's a guaranteed lotto pick but Julian Wright makes me nervous.

The idea of a 6'8" 215 lbs SF with no jumper and shaky handle seems like a reach in the lottery. Even with his athleticism.

I think his handles are well above average for a sophmore at his size. WELL ABOVE AVERAGE. He will definitely be able to handle the ball and break people down imo.

I never came away from watching him thinking his jumper was bad, but it's hard to tell with guys that never took over games. he simply didn't shoot enough and a lot of the time his points came off of close to the basket plays.

The only think I'd be worried about is his demeanor. Can he turn into a player that will give his all every night in the NBA. Perhaps he was in college, but he wasn't mentally ready to take over games. Who knows.

I've been high on Julian for a while, but I would never use a top 10 pick on someone I don't believe would eventually be a #1 option type player (even if a team already had a #1). You have to draft someone who wants to take over even if they're slightly less talented than him.

That's a lot of speculation however so from what I do know, Julian Wright should be a top 5 pick.
