Memphis should get a top 2 pick. Beasley is more than necessary for the Grizzlies. I'm almost sure that Rose will be #1 pick for almost any team with real chances in the lottery, so Beasley would be available at #2.

there is no way that augustin will be the 5th pick... it would be crazy i mean he is really good but i dont think he deserves to be pick that high...

I think it will be miami who gets the first pick... rose + wade + matrix is quite interesting just really depends on their back up...

number 2 pick is a toss between seatle and minny. i do hope minnies get it ....

about kevin love i dont think he is bogut 2.0 he will be just kevin love he can take his game to the nba.... love will be better than that bogus pick i mean bogut hahahaha if pacers get him he can be a good addition... plus a steal for the 11th pick ..

I just hope the top 2 go out West again just like last year. If teams like New York, Miami, Chicago or even New Jersey get up there then that'll probably send the Raptors back to the lottery next year.

That's a good thing. lol We could use Rubio as our future star guard or Thabeet once Bargnani gets deported.

To be honest I thought the same thing about two Western teams getting the picks though. In fact I want Seattle to get the #1 and Portland the #2 this year.

Rose
Durant
Green
Wilcox
Crap

and

Crap
Roy
Beasley
Aldridge
Oden

I don't like Beasley at the 3 cause I think he's too slow, but it would be interesting nonetheless. The teams would be one C and one PG away respectively from being great teams.

Aldridge and Beasley could almost be interchangeable on offense depending on the matchup.

The teams drafting the other player would make it simpler, but I don't like Beasley and Durant together.

I wouldn't mind if Memphis got 1 or 2. They'd obviously want Beasley but to me they are the kind of irrelevant team that I wouldn't mind seeing get one of these picks. Build around Conley, Gay and Beasley and see what happens. I doubt they'll be keeping Mike Miller around for long and IMO Darko sucks and will suck until the end of time so they'd still need fill the SG and C spots.
