Default My 2007 Mock Draft

I made this lottery mock draft with team needs included...its only speculation who will declare for the draft

1. Memphis- Greg Oden C from Ohio St
Would pair very well with gasol...#1 pick no matter which team picks
2. Philadelphia- Kevin Durant SF/PF from Texas
Just too much talent to drop. Would fit in well with andre
3. Boston- Spencer Hawes C from Washington
They need a C...and he is a true center...so that knocks off Noah/Wright
4. Charlotte- Brandon Wright PF/C from N. Carolina
A good offensive player that would pair up well with Okafor
5. Phoenix- Marco Belinelli SG from Italy
Great shooter and cann play PG/SG...Suns can give him time to develop
6. Seattle- Brandon Rush SG/SF from Kansas
With Lewis most likely leaving...Rush can play SF and is a good defender
7. Portland- Joakhim Noah PF/C from Florida
Not sure how much longer Randolph will be here...Noah/Aldridge looks good
8. Sacramento- Hasheem Thabeet C from UCONN
Huge Upside...but is a project...Will take over for miller when he is gone
9. NO/Oklahoma City- Marcus Williams SG/SF from Arizona
Great slasher and rebounder...hornets need a SG
10. New York- Al Horford PF/C from Florida
Plays great defense and runs very well...would pair well with curry
11. LA Cilppers- Julian Wright SG/SF from Kansas
Excellent athlete with good court vision...maggette might be gone
12. Miami- Darren Collison PG from UCLA
Great defender and reminds alot of people of Kevin Johnson
13. New Jersey- Darrell Arthur SF/PF from Kansas
His stock has jumped lately..moves well for a big man...bit of a tweener
14. Golden St- Thaddeus Young SF from Georgia Tech
great speed and athlete...would play well for Coach Nelson

This is little bit too high pick for him.
Poenix doesnt need another guy who can only shoot the ball, i think Marco cannot do much more in NBA than shoot from longrange. You can get much better from your 5 pick.
I dont see this Chinese kid Yi Jianlian in your list? I it true that is not coming in 2007?

Yes its a lil high but The suns have the luxary to either bring the kid into the u.s now or let him get playing time over in europe...I can also see them getting a euro and letting him stay there for a year or two so that they can save money and avoid the luxary tax...the kid is a great shooter and ball handler...he needs to gain stength and better court vision but the kid is a pretty good defender compared to most euro players

I would rather see wright drop to phx at 5 but i doubt that would happen

Yi Jianlian I tottaly forgot about... he should fall somehwere around mid lottery and yes he is coming out...hes already hired a u.s agent

Ill get to work on putting him the mock draft

I think Jianlian should be definetely in TOP 15.
He is 7 footer, who runs the court like 6"8 and has good athletic abilities for NBA. Ofcourse there will be questions about his age? He is listed, born in 1987, but some folks says that he is probably born in 85, 84.

I doubt that even if the Knicks did get that pick, they would pick a PF/C. They have: Eddy Curry, Channing Frye, Malik Rose, David Lee, Jerome James. Kelvin Cato all playing those two positions, with Eddy Curry, Channing Frye, and David Lee being the three man rotation in those two positions for our future. The Knicks are deep in every position, I doubt we would keep our first rounder.

Julian Wright is busting his a$$, taking over 20 college hr's per semester so he can graduate after his Junior yr. He won't be in this years NBA draft.

I doubt his teachers are real tough on him. My point was, no one would do so much work to reach their goal of graduating ,and then leave for the NBA.

Thabeet the 8th pick??? were u on drugs when u made this. If he goes to the draft this year, it will take 4-5 years to get him developed.

I'd take MBah A Moute for the Clippers over Julian Wright.

WHEN YOU DO THE ROCKETS I SUGGEST YOU MAKE THEM TAKE ALANDO TUCKER FROM WISCONSIN OR JOSH MCROBERTS FROM DUKE OR IF THEY TRADE DOWN THEY CAN PICK MORRIS ALMOND FROM RICE
