Here's a list of who i'm hoping for with that 12th pick (OKC).

1. Cody Zeller
2. Steven Adams
3. Shabazz Muhammed
4. Kelly Olynyk
5. Alex Len (Pretty much a reach, but here's to hoping he falls that low.)

And if everybody on that list isn't available anymore, i'd be fine with these guys...

1. CJ McCollum
2. Lucas Nogueira
3. Rudy Gobert
4. Michael Carter-Williams
5. Gorgui Dieng

Maybe get Withey with the 29th or 32nd pick.

She isn't very good. She doesn't like contact and she is not very athletic.

dieng would be a perfect fit in okc. he should be able to come right in and play. hes not as strong as perk, but hes a much better shot blocker, and hes got some skill offensively, finishing around the basket, shoot it a little, hes even shown flashes of passing skill.

1. Victor Oladipo, SG, Indiana

Secret NBA Draft Big Board Rating: 85.0 (of 100)

High Score: 9 (of 10)

Low Score: 7 (of 10)

Ford's comments: While Oladipo's ranking may surprise some, I'm not shocked. The key to his ranking is that his low score is only 7. With a narrow range between his low score of 7 and his high score of 9. Oladipo is widely regarded as the safest pick in the draft. While he doesn't garner a 10 from anyone, teams believe he's unlikely to fail. A number of GMs have privately confided in me that he's their favorite player in the draft -- not necessarily ranked No. 1 on their boards, but their favorite player. His range looks like it's from No. 2 to No. 5 on draft night.

2. Nerlens Noel, C, Kentucky

Secret NBA Draft Big Board Rating: 82.5

High Score: 10

Low Score: 4

Ford's comments: With the exception of one 4 rating (does this guy have info we don't have?), Noel received an 8, 9 or 10 from every voter. Clearly someone in the NBA thinks he'll be a bust, but the majority have him ranked as the top player in the draft. While Noel certainly has question marks thanks to ACL issues and a thin frame, most scouts and GMs still see him as an elite prospect. Right now we're projecting his draft range as 1 to 2.

3. Ben McLemore, SG, Kansas

Secret NBA Draft Big Board Rating: 81.7

High Score: 10

Low Score: 7

Ford's comments: McLemore, like Oladipo, is seen as a sure thing by most GMs. He didn't garner as many high scores as Noel, but he also didn't have anyone rank him as a potential bust. While teams have been recently concerned about his agent issues, his combination of athletic ability and shooting touch seem to have made them confident that he's a can't-miss prospect. Despite his high ranking here, McLemore's off-court situation could push him down slightly in the draft. That's why he is currently projected in the 2 to 7 range.

4. Anthony Bennett, PF, UNLV

Secret NBA Draft Big Board Rating: 81.5

High Score: 9

Low Score: 6

Ford's comments: Bennett landed one 6 rating and one 7 rating and scored an 8 or 9 on every other ballot. He finished just a tick under McLemore and is also seen by most as a very safe pick. Yes, he's a bit of a tweener, but most NBA GMs and scouts see versatility. He's projected to go between 1 and 7 on draft night.

5. Otto Porter Jr., SF, Georgetown

Secret NBA Draft Big Board Rating: 80.0

High Score: 10

Low Score: 6

Ford's comments: Porter was only one of three players to get a 10 rating (Noel and McLemore were the other two). But he also received several 6 ratings, showing a significant split between voters on Porter's future in the NBA. Where some see the next Scottie Pippen, others see Tayshaun Prince. It looks like his draft night range is 1 to 6.

6. Alex Len, C, Maryland

Secret NBA Draft Big Board Rating: 77.5

High Score: 9

Low Score: 4

Ford's comments: While Len has a legitimate shot at going No. 1, our voters overall weren't nearly as high on him. He didn't garner a 10 from anyone and was rated as low as 4 by one voter. That lack of consensus from our panel shows up around the league as well in private conversations. Some GMs love him, while others are very wary. But his overall rating of 77.5 puts him just five points behind Noel. Like the five players above him, he's expected to be one of the top six picks on draft night.

7. C.J. McCollum, PG, Lehigh

Secret NBA Draft Big Board Rating: 75.0

High Score: 9

Low Score: 6

Ford's comments: Along with Oladipo being ranked No. 1, McCollum may be the biggest surprise of our survey. McCollum is ranked as the third-best point guard in my Top 100, but here he comes up ahead of Trey Burke and Michael Carter-Williams by a nose. Like Oladipo, he ranked highly because he's considered a solid, reliable pick. While Carter-Williams and Burke garnered higher votes, they also had lower ones too. McCollum's narrow voting range of 6 to 9 was identical to Bennett's and similar to Oladipo's. He may not have as much upside as others, but he's seen as a safer pick. McCollum's draft night range is 5 to 14.

8. Cody Zeller, PF, Indiana

Secret NBA Draft Big Board Rating: 73.3

High Score: 9

Low Score: 6

Ford's comments: Like McCollum, Zeller appears to be a fairly safe pick -- his ratings run from 6 to 9 on our ballots. Zeller's stellar advanced metric numbers may be helping him here, along with a belief that he'll make the transition from college center to NBA stretch 4. Zeller's draft night range is 4 to 12.

9. Trey Burke, PG, Michigan

Secret NBA Draft Big Board Rating: 73.1

High Score: 9

Low Score: 5

Ford's comments: This vote shows the split in NBA circles on Burke. While some believe he'll be a star, others think he's going to be just an average player at the next level. Burke has moved off his status as the consensus No. 1 point guard in the draft and is now an eye-of-the-beholder type of player. Burke's range on draft night appears to be 6 to 14.

10 (tie). Michael Carter-Williams, PG, Syracuse

Secret NBA Draft Big Board Rating: 69.2

High Score: 9

Low Score: 3

Ford's comments: Carter-Williams has been chasing Burke in the point guard rankings for months, and once again he's right behind Burke. Some teams love him and others think he'll be a bust -- he received an 8 or a 9 from about half the teams in our survey (more than Burke) but also was rated as low as 3 and 4 on other ballots. As one of the most polarizing players on the board, his draft night range appears to be wide as well -- he could go as early as No. 5 or as late as No. 14.

10 (tie). Dario Saric, SF, Croatia

Secret NBA Draft Big Board Rating: 69.2

High Score: 9

Low Score: 3

Ford's comments: Saric withdrew from the 2013 NBA Draft but was included in our survey, and it's clear that he was considered a likely lottery pick. He made the top 10, and he received ratings as high as 8 and 9. He also received a 3 from one voter, pulling his overall rating down a little. Most of our voters rated him at 7, which translates to being a mid-to-late lottery pick. (It might be hard for him to reach the same level in a more stacked 2014 draft.) Saric's draft night range was 6 to 13 before he withdrew.

That is a new one for me and I've heard a lot of crazy rumors. It sure why the Cavs would do that. Thomas is a decent player and all, but assuming they go Noel with the first pick, they need a young SF in the worst way. And this draft is deep at SF.

Interesting tidbit from Chad Ford today...

Quote:
Noel told Louisville's Courier-Journal on Sunday that the Cavs' lead doctor, Dr. Richard Parker, had medically cleared him. Iíve had that confirmed by several sources. The Cavs have no serious issues with his knee.




Do it, Chris. This isn't difficult. No reason to over-think this thing.

I have heard word that Noel is doing really well in rehab, there is no reason he wont be healthy like most athletes by the 6-9 month period. Shouldn't compare him to that ***** Rose who is an extreme case of taking time to get back.

For the Suns, im hoping for
1) Alex Len
2) Ben McLemore
3) Victor Oladipo

Noel or Porter works too. We're in a good position because only our PG position is really set right now. I think its time to move Gortat while he still has some value, i think he has reached his ceiling. I really really REALLY hope we dont draft Anthony Bennett. Dont need another tweener at a position where we are already stacked. MIGHT consider Cody Zeller here too.


For OKC, im hoping for
1) Cody Zeller
2) Steven Adams
3) Shabuzz Mohammed

We should address our need for a big that can score. Zeller would be the PERFECT fit, Adams has potential to be a solid offensive big. Shabuzz is a risky pick, but i like his potential, i think his bad rep made his slip alot further than he should. Other options here could be Mason Plumlee or the Gonzaga center Olynx(?).

The Sacramento Kings are looking to acquire a second first-round pick and are using guard Jimmer Fredette as bait. Sources say the Kings have reached out to a number of teams in the mid-to-late first round in an attempt to secure another pick. Both the Indiana Pacers and Utah Jazz are potential destinations for Jimmer. Kings coach Mike Malone is enamored with both Tim Hardaway Jr. and Tony Snell, but the Kings feel that they can get them much lower in the draft.

Good job for the Kings front office, Jimmer is trash and a first round pick for him is beyond a steal.
