Default Updated InsideHoops.com NBA Mock Draft

http://www.insidehoops.com/nba-mock-draft.shtml

If you disagree with anything, EXPLAIN WHY.

And if we forgot a player, or highly overrated one, explain it.

You should probably switch Conley with Yi.

I love the Brandon Rush pick. He would fit in great with Utah.

If we got Conley and Yi I think I'd have an orgasm right in the draft party...amid all of the Hawks fans yelling "Who?"

ATL won't take Conley at the 3rd spot.

I could see why they would take him though. Maybe they will trade down.


How would taking a SF help the Kings? They already have Martin, Artest, Salmons, and Garcia fighting for minutes at the 2 and 3. They Kings either take a PG or a big man to fortify the paint.

Rudy Fernandez isn't included in your mock draft. I assume it was a mistake because he definately will go in the first round. A reputable draft site has him ranked #1 in 07 SGs. (they make combo guard/forwards a seperate category.)

I think ATL can take the risk of drafting Conely too high at 3 because they really need him (and he could be gone at 11) and they DO have another high pick in a very deep draft

Hibbert is the next Sweetney, IMO.

i think its likely a number of teams would be willing trade up from a position where conley still can be had.

Too tired for long comments, so here it is quick.

Too high:

5. Hibbert- why take a complete stiff when Noah, Jianlian, Hawes, McRoberts and Horford are on the board?

8. Green- He can't penetrate against NBA 3's and can't shoot well enough to be worthy of a top 10 pick. He may do a lot well, but you have to do something great or at least have the skill set to eventually do something great to be top 10 worthy.

20. Almond- Better guards on the board in Bellineli, Rush and Stuckey.

Too Low:

10. J. Wright- My 3rd best player in the draft. Has amazing talent. Needs to be more assertive though. He's the opposite of Green in that while he never showed all that he can do, you can see that he will be a great distributer at the 3. He'll be a better rebounder and scorer than Green as well.

11. Jianlian- Too much skill = high potential = more value than a stiff like Hibbert and a semi-stiff in Horford. A player this fluid on the court can't drop to 11.

16. McRoberts- Said it before, he's my sleeper out of the bigs. Great athleticism and has pretty good touch. Needs to work on defense and grow some balls, but he is a nice offensive player. Hello Chicago.

22. Marcus Williams- My sleeper out of all the draftees. The guys is quite talented, but his attitude is questionable. IMO he's the next J.Howard, Caron Buter in the NBA.

Is Rudy Fernandez out of the draft?

I think Minnesota should take Law because Mike James didnt seem to work out and hes a really good slasher, shooter and can pass well. They need a point guard and Law could be better than conley

Hibbert to the Celtics doesn't make sense. He needs way too much space on the offensive end to go to work, and that's space that is already devoted to Al Jefferson.
