Arrow Early Mock drafts

3. Minnesota Timberwolves- Brook Lopez
4. Seattle Supersonics- Jerryd Bayless
5. Memphis Grizzlies- Kosta Koufos
6. NY Knicks- Danilo Gallinari
7. LA Clippers- Eric Gordon
8. Milwaukee Bucks- Kevin Love
9. Charlotte Bobcats- Anthony Randolph
10. NJ Nets- OJ Mayo
11. Indiana Pacers- Chase Budinger
12. Sacramento Kings- Darrell Arthur
13. Portland Trailblazers- DJ Augustin
14. GS Warriors- Russell Westbrook
15. Phoenix Suns- DeAndre Jordan
16. Philadelphia 76’ers- Darren Collison (if he enters draft)
17. Toronto Raptors- Nicolas Batum
18. Washington Wizards- Donte Green (value pick)
19. Cleveland Cavs- Ty Lawson
20. Denver Nuggets- Chrish Douglas-Roberts
21. NJ Nets- JaVale McGee
22. Orlando Magic- Brandon Rush
23. Utah Jazz- Robin Lopez
24. Seattle Supersonics- Joe Alexander (value pick)

Just a couple of things, you have McGee twice on your list. You have him at 21st to the Nets and 23rd to the Jazz.

Also, why do you think that Mayo will drop so low? I can't see him falling past 5 to be honest.

Thanks. I had edited something on Word and forgot to switch the players around.

That would be interesting for the Nets. I'm not 100% sure I want the OJ Mayo baggage around though, I'd love Gordon instead. Getting McGee that low though would be great...

Yeah no problem. So why do you think Mayo will drop down to the 10th pick?

Celtics: Devon Who??? Is Derron Washington in this draft??? We need some athleticism on our bench.

Anyway, I think the Knicks should go after Love or Randolph.

Hate to bust your bubble hippos, all the Wolves boards are on the Mayo bandwagon and would throw up if we take Lopez.

Default Re: Early Mock drafts

I will just do the top 10 (assuming they kept their picks):

1. Bulls - D. Rose (hometown boy; and in my option the no. 1 choice for any team)
2. Heat - M. Beasley (who else?)
3. Timberwolves - OJ Mayo (they need a big time scorer more than a C)
4. Supersonics - Brook Lopez (need a big to go with the SF and SG from last years draft)
5. Grizziles - DeAndre Jordon (a big gamble that might payoff really well; can't pass on a C with good potential)
6. Knicks - Danilo Gallinari (6'10 forward body with great ball handles and shooting ability upto 3 point range, perfect for the new coach in town)
7. Clippers - Eric Gordon (great scorer who can shoot well from the outside will be great playing along Brand and Corey who like to play the physical game)
8. Bucks - Jerryd Bayless (I don't think the Redd and Mo Williams experiment is working out; new blood is needed in the backcourt to turn things around)
9. Bobcats - Darrel Arthur (they need a guy who can score in the front court; their PG, SG, SF, and C situation are not so bad, but Darrel Arthur is much smoother than Okafor on the offense)
10. Nets - Kevin Love (again with good scoring SG and SF like Jefferson and Carter and PG like D. Harris, they could use someone who can contribute offensively in the front court to take pressure off the outside shooters)

Post Re: Early Mock drafts

I don't think Hibbert would be a good pick for the Spurs. They use athletic guys that can also step out a little and hit a mid-range jumper, and Hibbert is not that. Also, they have Tiago Splitter waiting over in Europe, and I believe they are planning on bringing him over soon. They will probably take another European guy and stash him overseas for a couple years, because they have shown that the team is just fine as it is.

IMO Hibbert would be perfect for them, he has that tim duncan syndrome.
he could come off the bench and help duncan defending in the paint.
he's also from a great program and was never a problem.
it would be a steal for the spurs.

I don't like Hibbert going to San Antonio either. They got the best post player in the league in Duncan. I also think Lopez at 3 is way too high.

You have OJ Mayo dropping to 10? Not a chance. He'll go probably in 3- 5 range.
