Default ISH Mock Draft - #18 Overall - Minnesota T'Wolves

PHP Code:
1-Blake Griffin
2
-Ricky Rubio
3
-James Harden
4
-Brandon Jennings
5
-Hasheem Thabeet
6
-Tyreke Evans
7
-Jonny Flynn
8
-Stephen Curry
9
-Demar DeRozan
10
-Jordan Hill
11
-Earl Clark
12
-Gerald Henderson
13
-Jrue Holiday
14
-James Johnson
15
-BJ Mullens
16
-Terrence Williams
17
-Eric Maynor


Note: Tyreke Evans was selected with the T'Wolves 6th pick

This is probably the hardest pick so far. The positions the T'Wolves need (center, small forward) are starting to run out. I'm going to go with Sam Young with this pick. One of the things Minnesota lacks is great athleticism with guys like Jefferson, Love, Craig Smith, Cardinal, and Miller all being guys who stay glued to the floor. He could end up being similar to Carney but without trades I really don't know who else to take.


Count:

Sam Young: 4
Chase Budinger: 3
Ty Lawson: 2
Austin Daye: 1
DeJuan Blair: 1

Already drafted my man

Posterize is making up posts now. Dick.

Having Evans in the fold now makes it tough. I'm not convinced he's a true point but more of a ball dominant OJ Mayo type 2. I'll go with Austin Daye. Needs lots (and lots) of muscle, but if he can put it together he has the chance to be a difference maker on the wing.

wow i like the pick .. .sam young is a very underrated guy actually..

mike miller is ageing ... brewer isnt anywhere to be found...

ryan gomes is fine.. sam young can definitely learn from gomes.

i think it would be him and ty lawson going for this.

half hearted really. my mind says lawson but the other speaks young.

so id go for lawson.. mainly because foye and evans are alike i mean they are two except for foye he should actually be a pg .. so they will have a rotation of foye lawson and evans at the 1 and 2... ;)

Back court: Evans, Foye
Front court: Love, Jefferson

Wings: Gomes/Brewer.....

Yeah, they need a SF the most in my opinion.
Another shooter could be nice to space for Love and Jefferson...
Not a big fan of Young and Daye is a baseball bat...

So I'll take Chase Budinger with this
He's super-atheltic, he's a sick volleyball player too lol

Sam Young. The guy will make an instant impact of defense and has a good enough offensive game to help this team more then Budinger or Daye could.

DeJaun Blair..Another frontcourt player to go with Big Al for the T'Wolves.

They already have Jefferson and Love, they don't need another rebounder.

I'd go with Young. They need another wing player. I think Young would be a good pick here.

Wayne Ellington will be a better wing player than Sam Young IMO.

Why'd you take like a week off? What happened to doing the second round, **** the first round won't be done by Thursday at this rate.

Anyways, Sam Young to play SF. Although him going ahead of Dejuan Blair seems... wrong somehow. But it could happen, Blair is only 6'6 after all. And Chase Budinger should be a second rounder, dude is a straight *****.


And hurry this **** up, before I start making threads myself.
