This guy will find a spot in the NBA. With all the great parts of the NBA Draft-the guys who have lived in the gutter finally making it big-it has a lot of sad stories of guys just being told that all the hard work that they've done over the years wasn't good enough. At least there's Europe.

The Minnesota Timberwolves aren't holding onto O.J. Mayo for long.

Two league sources told ESPN.com that the Wolves have reached an agreement in principle with the Memphis Grizzlies that will send the draft rights of Mayo, Marko Jaric, Antoine Walker and Greg Buckner to the Grizzlies in return for the draft rights to Kevin Love, Mike Miller, Brian Cardinal and Jason Collins.

not surprised about Demarcus Nelson, he's a good player but he just doesnt seem like he'll do any good in the NBA, when your short you got to be pretty damn good and he was pretty short. He was a good team leader for duke but just not NBA material. I know Ill probably get a few disagreements on this. Just didnt seem to get a special spark from him.

I believe James Mays would fare better in the NBA than Nelson.

Cavs might take a look at this kid's potential, and i think he is going to be a good replacement to Damon Jones/ Devin Brown.

For a draft with so much talent it was such a disappointment. So many opportunities for people to fill needs (really all the way through the first round) with strong talent and more often than not it didn't seem to go that route. I saw redundant picks after rendundant pick. I mean look at Charlotte. You have a 3rd year pg with back to back seasons of 14 and 7 and you draft a pg with a big question mark with the 7th pick when you could've gotten size? That's just nuts to me.

Im glad with the Clippers picks. I wanted Gordon. Said they would grab him too, so that's good. I also like picking up Deandre Jordan. Sure he's got ways to go, but you can't go wrong picking up a prospect like him there.

Wasn't he supposed to be a lottery pick?
How did he end that low?

From what I heard him being in the lottery was him being overrated. He showed he was pretty raw. He didn't impress during the few moments he was on the court last year...

They said his agent didn't entertain teams with 20+ 1st rounders thinking Deandre would be gone by that time. That might have worked a few seasons ago but not this time. GM's are now afraid to draft on pure potential w/o showing something
