Per Yahoo! draft buzz:

League sources say the Nets have narrowed their choices at No. 11 to North Carolina’s Tyler Hansbrough and Duke’s Gerald Henderson.
Looks like we'll get Terrance Williams.

I know, but the odds are in our favor. The Nets were the only ones ahead of us, I think, that had their eyes on Williams. Now that they want either Hansbrough or Henderson I think we're clear. Especially so if a big name falls farther than expected.

if we do get him we could trade vlad then if anyone would take him so we can get a back up 4 since williams can play 2 and 3 we could get a decent player or a 2nd rounder if any one would want to take his contract.

Sources say that Louisville’s Terrence Williams is back in the mix with the Nets at No. 11. He’s on the short list with North Carolina’s Tyler Hansbrough and Duke’s Gerald Henderson. Charlotte is offering two second-round picks to try to get a second first-round pick (in the 20s), but has no takers so far.

crap looks like we spoke a little to soon....
but hopefully we can get a take for the 2 2nds

Is it possible to package our two 2nd round picks with one of our current players and use that package to get some depth where we need it?

Per Chris Broussard at 6pm:
At No. 11, the Nets have four players on their board: Flynn, Terrence Williams, Gerald Henderson and Tyler Hansbrough. Hansbrough is the fourth choice. They think he'll be a solid pro for 10 years, though probably just a spot starter. They love Williams' versatility and upside.

Henderson could be the ahead of Williams but who knows. I'm done trying to figure this draft out, I'm just going to watch and enjoy!

I think we could get this done. A lot of teams are willing to take cash straight up for the pick b/c they don't want to draft a player in the 1st round (b/c that means a guaranteed contract. Specifically, I've heard the Hornets were shopping their pick (21). Also read that the Lakers (29) plan to move their pick to save cap space but that's probably a little two far down to get anyone we want.

WHO HAS CONTROL OF THIS TEAM?!?!?! I really like Williams. This is getting silly.

Early morning buzz from Chad Ford:
"Louisville's Terrence Williams has a right to be upset. After working out against Gerald Henderson on Monday in Charlotte, Williams thought he got a promise to be drafted by Charlotte at No. 12. Larry Brown had fallen in love with him and Williams was confident enough that he skipped a workout the next day with New Jersey.

Then Michael Jordan showed up. According to sources Jordan isn't a big Williams fan and would prefer that the Bobcats either trade the pick or draft Wake Forest's James Johnson.

Can't wait to see how that one turns out."

My bad, I just posted a topic with this. But yeah, Jordan needs to stfu and be an owner. Stop meddling.
