uh ya....i don't think you realize how stupid that statement was.

he was probably the best running big man in college the last two seasons imo.

so you don't start a hissy fit, i'll retract that statement and say top 5.

Our Cs have worked out a lot of prospects. Brandon Roy isn't one of them. He's not a better talent than, for instance, Marcus Williams (who the team has worked out) and fills no need. So why draft him? He'll be a fine player but he won't be a Celtic next year barring some major roster shake-up by Danny.

He might be, but Randy Foye (another guy Danny's brought in for workouts), Sergio Rodriguez (had a workout), Shelden Williams (worked out), O'Bryant (ditto)...one of these guys has to be available, and if they aren't an even greater talent like Gay or Thomas must have slipped. Odds of us getting Roy are remote.

alright. foye has kind of lost some wind as of late. either way, he's not a top 7 talent.

rodriguez is too much of a question mark to be a lottery selection. sheldon isn't that good to put it simply. i explained why i didn't put o'bryant there (trust me, it took me a few minutes to finally put roy over him).

You said your "sources" hooked you up, yet you had to think about it? ;)

i have many sources...the point me in a very "narrow" direction that sometimes leads two different ways....this isn't an exact science.

i can tell you most likely the celts will take roy.....if not it would be o'bryant....but that's a BIG if.

Looks pretty good, but the Bulls won't be drafting another undersized guard in the backcourt at #16 in Shannon Brown. We got enough of that already in Hinrich, Gordon, Duhon, Pargo. And especially if Saer is still on the board, who's been moving up the draft.

Foye was a first team All-American and is well-respected by most draft analysts. If the team had no intention of drafting him, why bring him in for a workout? The bottom line is this team has little use for Brandon Roy, never worked him out, and has major needs in the areas of pg (Delonte is our only reliable point) and center (after Perk there's no toughness). SG/SF is by far our strongest area. We're not getting Brandon Roy unless something huge happens, like Paul Pierce getting traded or some horrific offseason injuries (double-knock on wood).
