Default Redrafting the 2012 NBA Draft

If your team had the chance to redo the draft, Who would you draft differently?

For me,
Celtics select Jared Sullinger (#21)
and select Festus Ezeli (#22)
Rather than Fab Melo, though its too early to tell, Festus Ezeli has really carved out a role for the warriors as a rebounder and block specialist and averages 4 rebounds and 1 block over 16 minutes per game.

There were two reasons Sully went so low one is cause of his back issues and the other was people didn't know how his game would translate into the NBA while being a good player in college. If he stays injury free than yeah teams will be kicking themselves.

Austin Rivers should have been a mid-late 2nd round pick at best

I thought you were going to redo the lottery, if not the entire first round. Disappointed with your lack of commitment.

No one since clippers traded away all first round draft picks.
We drafted some dude named Furkan Aldemir at 53rd. Dont know who the hell he is though.

Rudy Gay + the Tony Wroten pick for Bradley Beal and a future unprotected 1st.

I would have taken Drummond over Barnes. I like Barnes, but Drummond on this Warriors squad would be magical. He's exactly what we need, and Bogut could teach him how to play D and pass.

Players like Fab Melo are projects. He will be a solid NBA contributor as soon as next year. That's pretty amazing to find that in a center at pick #22.

Plus he's one of the most mobile 7 footers around. A mobile 7 footer than can block shots has a lot of value and potential in today's NBA.

If redrafting is being done, Drummond is probably gone before 6.

NOH - Davis
Cats - Lillard - Even with Kemba, can't pass up that kind of talent.
Wiz - Drummond? Beal? MKG? - I heard they really wanted MKG.
Cavs - Drummond? Beal? MKG? - Beal probably? Although the rumors about trading Varejao...
Kings - Drummond? Beal? MKG? - Drummond and move DMC to the 4, which he could play well at.

If the Cavs preferred Waiters to Beal prior to the draft, what has changed over the first 40 games to drastically change their minds?

Dion Waiters
30.8 minutes
14.2 points (37.3% FG, 78.2% FT, 31.1% 3PT)
3.2 assists
2.5 rebounds
1.2 steals
2.0 turnovers

Brad Beal
31.5 minutes
13.2 points (36.2% FG, 81.6% FT, 32.4% 3PT)
2.6 assists
3.7 rebounds
1.0 steals
1.6 turnovers






Reports after the draft -- namely the one issued by Windhorst who was embedded in the Cavs' war room -- stated that the Cavs' board looked like this... 1. Davis, 2. Waiters, MKG, 3. Everybody else (they knew either MKG or Waiters would be there).

The real interesting thing would have been if both MKG and Waiters were on the board.

OMFG that would have been the move to make and JT off the bench Kings got a athletic/skilled frontcourt for the next decade, if only tho if only.

Pistons had a gem fall into their lap.

After watching Drummond play in college I thought he had no shot of becoming a consisten player on this level. Boy was I wrong, I love everything about the kids game so far. Plays like a true bigman. The issues brought up about his questionable motor were put to rest like 2 games into the season.

This guy is a star in the making

Don't want to quote the entire thing because it will clog up the page...

But because GMs are now drafting with some perspective on how the player fits in the NBA?

I don't think many people whom have objectively watched both will say they prefer Waiters over Beal. Nevermind fit for the team (which I think Beal fits better too), just purely as a basketball talent, Beal appears more well rounded with more upside. To me at least.

To gain perspective on where I see the two:
-imo, Beal is a fringe all-star talent. Good starting SG in the NBA.
-Waiters is a 4th, maybe 5th option who needs the ball likes he's a top two option. High and inefficient scorer on a bad team. Very good 6th man on a championship caliber squad.

Perhaps I'm wrong. Wouldn't be the first time, but it's what I see right now.
