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 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

You don't think Yi Jianlian should be a top 14? He's 7'0 230lb and he's very athletic.

He looks like he needs improving put I like the way he plays his game.

I actually like that Hawes pick. I had not been able to figure out who would fit well with them, but he might be the best pick. I think it might be a little high for him, but considering this team is going no where fast, why not draft a potentially good big man?

Charlotte also can't keep drafting big men forever, but considering they are not good, they can't be too picky either. Wright would be the best player left with the 4th pick.

I think you have Bellini and Rush too high. I have said before that I think Horford would be a good fit with Pheonix, and for Seattle, if they are going to draft a SF, I would go with Budinger, Young, or Williams. They just have a lot more potential I think.

I like Portland taking Noah, but I don't think he would be there.

I'm not sure who they could get with such a "low" pick, but I think New Orleans need to go after a great big man. They are never going to compete in that division with Duncan, Yao, Dirk, and Gasol (not this year obviously) running things.

The rest is okay, except I don't think Collison even gets close to the lottery. I also personally would have Horford higher, and Arthur lower. Obviously you left our Jianlian, so that takes up another spot, and I think that if they leave, Glen Davis, Hansbrough, McRoberts, Mbah a Moute, Tasmin Mitchell, Corey Brewer, and Nick Young will clog things up some as well. This should be a great swingman draft, and not a bad big man draft. I think if you are looking for true guards, you will have some trouble though.

Another player that I don't think gets talked about enough for the lottery is Aaron Gray. He is going to be a solid big man, and I think some of those teams that are "close," like New Jersey, Golden State, Indiana, and even Miami will give him a long look. He should be able to step in a play over 20 minutes and give you 6-12pts, 6-10 reb., and a block each game. The biggest thing that I think he gives a team though, is just the ability to stay in the post, act big, and at least play hard and physical. I like Hibbert as well, but not as much, and I think he will take a couple years to really become a full time player in the NBA.

knicks would draft a true passing PG or a Defensive Center.

Wow, who ever gets Alando Tucker is going to get a STEAL.

Julian Wright has already come out and said he will finish college before going pro. Also with Wright staying, I believe that Rush and Chalmers will stay as well, or atleast stay for their junior year - unless they win a Championship.

1st pick is not a lock for Oden... Durant is getting better by the minute...

1.) Greg Oden
2.) Kevin Durant
3.) Joakim Noah
4.) Julian Wright
5.) Al Harford
6.) Brandan Wright (he reminds way too much of Marvin Williams)
7.) Josh McRoberts
8.) Spencer Hawes
9.) Yi Jianlian
10.) Dominic James (because of his height, he'll probably slip midway)
11.) Corey Brewer
12.) Chase Budinger
13.) Alando Tucker (underrated)
14.) Tyler Hansbrough
