DeMar DeRozan 6"7 211 SG/SF Comparision: Ruben Patterson production with Vince Carter potential.
DeJuan Blair 6"7 277 PF Comparision: Elton Brand
Terrance Williams 6"6 213 Comparison: John Salmons skills with Andre Iguodala hops
Jrue Holiday 6"4 199 PG/SG Comparison: Mardy Collins

Gerald Henderson 6"5 215 SG Comparison: Latrell Sprewell
Jose Hyland 5"10 169 PG from the Bronx NY Comparision: Nate Archibald
Trade the pick
Realistically, Griffin, Thabeet, Rubio, Evans, Curry, Flynn, Harden will be gone by 8.
So who do you want left on the board?
Make a top 5 draft board.
1. DeJuan Blair
2. Ty Lawson
3. Gerald Henderson
4. Jordan Hill (sadly)
5. Terrance Williams

All that we're left with is:
Pick your poison. If Jennings is off the board - I'll just trade down (dump off a contract) in the event we can't trade up and hope that come July 1st we can land a marque player through trades.
Why am I the only one who thinks we NEED Thabeet more than any other player available?
If we are trading up for anyone, it should be him!
ps. this is my 1st post! after watching for about a year..

Damn, I forgot to put Jennings.
How do I edit a poll?
if those are the players available then its either Lawson Flynn or Jennings in that order for me anyone else im tight.
*i'd like to see us snag a mid-ish 1st and have one of the PGs fall, pick Hill or Blair w/ our 8 and pray
2. Terrance Williams
3. Blair (I think he can become Charles Barkley like)
4. Gerald Henderson
5. Trade it
Hopefully Walsh drafts Lawson, given that scenario. I think he went to UNC, so hopefully he'll be biased.
Assuming [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] has the first 7 picks right and none of them fall to 8th:
A. Im not convinced on Holiday... Flynn has moved up to 4th but Holiday will probably fall out of the top 10
B.My draftboard at 8th:
1. Brandon "Who's Kiki?" Jennings
2. Jordan Hill (D'Antoni thinking Amare here, but more like Kiya's Tazman)
3. Gerald "at least Im not Dan Grunfeld" Henderson
4. Ty Lawson (4 yrs, a title and no respect, right PsychoT?)
5. Terrence Williams (I know Nate, Jamal and Brandon Roy!!!)
Knicks will probably trade up or get another pick.. I doubt they'll stay put like last year.
Earl Clark may be a good target if trading into the mid-teens.
Maybe the Minny 28th pick rumor is to go after Jonas Jerebko, swedish star in Italy league, if he's available before the Lakers tradeup to grab him.
All done here...Steph Curry still says he hopes to be a Knick..Jennings says he won't be a Knick bc "its clear who they want."
[quote=metrocard;95341]Realistically, Griffin, Thabeet, Rubio, Evans, Curry, Flynn, Harden will be gone by 8.
Flynn will be there at 10 -- this is bad look at things
call the jazz up.and see if donnie can get our unprotected back
I am hoping that Hill is not available at 8 because that would likely mean that Curry or Flynn would be available. And if we get Darko for Q-Rich, there is less of a need for Hill.
I see Griffen at 1, Thabeet at 2, Rubio and Harden, at 3, 4 or 5, Evans at 3, 4, 5, or 6, Hill at 7 and either Curry or Flynn at somewhere between 3 and 6 inclusive.
Its a toss-up for me between Flynn and Curry, but I am starting to lean toward Flynn. So --
If in fact those guys are off the board then
2) Williams (should be able to trade chandler away if we need to)
4) Trade it
I don't see Flynn getting passed by Sac, Min or maybe GS.
I hope Curry does not fall to 8...I would die.
