lol at Heat picking Myles Turner. Pretty sure we haven't even worked him out, there have been hardly any rumours about it, and we've constantly been linked with SF's and SG's.

Lot of word coming out that Heat want a player that can take Wade's spot after he retires.

Like franchise player? I don't see a guard with that kind of potential at 10

I'm not thinking franchise, though if they do mold into that, then brilliant. Sounded more as if they are trying to find a solid wing player for the future that'll be their for 8-12 years and can be what you want from someone at that position.

I hope Muiday or Hezonja drop to 10 since they do have potential to be that franchise guy given their development goes well.

No way in hell either happens.

Stanley Johnson has the most star potential of any player in the range from #10 to #14. Jerian Grant would be a close second if he betters his scoring.

I'm predicting them keeping their pick and reaching for a Justin Anderson.

What they really want is a center.

I'd be happy with OKC picking Payne, would be what Eric Maynor supposed to become but never did.

I don't think he'd get past Detroit at 8. Doubt he makes it even that far, though.

Where are the mods? People are posting new threads now for the same purpose because this isn't stickied.

Only four days until the Draft

I feel a lot of the rumours coming out are just smokescreens such as the Celtics trading up to get Myles Turner, trading up to #9 and trading up to #4. How does that many rumours come out surrounding one team?
