I've been getting some pretty random ones lately too.

It's a shame Kanter's stock is rising that high. This draft class lacks elite firepower, so I think not playing might be helping him. As he "might" be that super elite talent the draft is missing, at least people are talking themselves into that mindset as he might be worth the risk if they don't think anyone else is worth their top pick.

I also think Terrence Jones will be rising above where we'll be picking too. He could have been a solid player for us, not a big or a point, but I think he'll have a real impact in the NBA. He fits a run and gun system better though so it'll be good for him.

Derrick Williams, John Henson and Jan Vesely are some players I'd like to know more about if anyone has any good clips/knowledge to drop on me.

Yeah, I agree about Kanter. Even Calipari has said a few times that he wasn't as good as Cousins was coming into college. I think him not playing is only helping things out because someone will definitely take a chance on a big man. There's a lot of intriguing players and most mock drafts have us picking 6 or 7 still (again). I've seen some even having us pick Harrison Barnes now. He really hasn't proven himself in college yet. There's so much that will happen during March Madness that someones stock will go up too. I think this year if we keep the pick the idea should be to not play it safe and go with the person who has the most potential. The guy that could maybe be a perenial all-star. I know I've been saying C is our weakest position, but I'm thinking just draft any position and the guy who could potentially be awesome. I still need to see some more on some of these top rated players though.

Maybe a trade between Erden and Hamilton?

Ideas on that?

I'm not sure who else they could throw in to make the salaries match. I'm also not sure Boston needs a SG necessarily. Semih Erden is completely unproven. He's had a couple decent games and that's about it. We'd need an expiring contract for sure. It's almost the same gamble as using our first round pick on Kanter. I'm thinking we should use our first round pick on Jimmer now! That kid is lighting it up and isn't even considered a lottery pick yet in the mock drafts. His stock is rising and I'm sure he's an early first rounder now.

Jimmer has been sick. He has improved every single year in school too. I thought for sure his junior year was his peak, and I had BYU going far in the tournament just because of Jimmer. I could definitely see him as a 9-14 lotto pick.

I've been watching some Derrick Williams stuff (what I can). The kid is amazingly talented. I think he'll shoot up to a top 8 pick, versus the 1 low to mid teens I see him in drafts. I read people project him as a 3 at the next level, mostly because he's 6'7/6'8, but I think he should play the 4 regardless of height. He's very simiilar to David West, whom people wanted to say he should play the 3 and 4 in the spot minutes, but his skill set just screamed 4.

I don't think it matters too much where you're picking this year, as long as you're in the top 8. Top 8 will be (in my opinion), Perry Jones, Enes Kanter, Terrance Jones, Kyrie Irving, Jared Sullinger, Jonas Valaciunas, Derrick Willaims and Kemba Walker. I think these guys are the top tier. The next tier I think will be guys like Jimmer, John Henson, Harrison Barnes, Jordan Hamilton, Brandon Knight, John Selby, etc.

I agree about your picks other than I think Jimmer should be in the top tier. The thing with that guy is he creates his own shots. There's a lot of guys who can score in college but it doesn't translate to the NBA because they aren't creating their own shots. The thing that always translates is the guys who can create. Jimmer has been doing an excellent job of that lately. Yesterday he played against an undefeated San Diego St. team that plays very good defense. It didn't even phase him. I think anybody from Michigan (that's old enough) will definitely remember the head coach of that San Diego St. team too... Steve Fisher. He's a guy who always did a good job coaching both sides of the ball, defensively and offensively. If Jimmer can continue to lead the country in scoring and make a nice run in the playoffs I see him as a top 8 pick. Someone will want to take that chance on him. I don't see him getting drafted over Irving, but right now I think he's the 2nd PG to get drafted. Draft express has him as the #12 pick right now and the 3rd PG to get drafted (it was updated today too...). They have us picking Kemba Walker at 7 now. I'm like Jimmer better at the moment. It could change but if it was today that's who I pick. We all know the Pistons need a guy who can create his own shot, regardless of position.

I like the game of Derrick Williams too, I've just never been a fan of PF's that aren't at least 6'9" (besides Charles Barkley, lol). He's probably a top 5 pick and someone we won't have a chance at anyhow. I'd still really like to see what Jonas is capable of at that spot with Monroe next to him too.
