    That's a good list of prospects. I hope the Knicks draft Augustin. He has All Star potential.

    If everything worked out that way do you feel he is a solid pick for us,And if we can get another pick in the late or mid first round who do you think would be a sleeper that maybe we can get lucky with

    Unfortunately, the Knicks do not have a 2008 second round pick. Isiah Thomas traded this year's second round pick(as part of the Zach Randolph trade), 2009's second round pick(as part of the Eddy Curry trade), and our 2010 first round pick(as part of the Stephon Marbury trade). If the Knicks want someone else, all they can do is sign an undrafted player. Unless they can find a team willing to give us a pick for the garbage on our team. lol

    A player who I thought was a sleeper was Lester Hudson, but he decided to withdraw his name from the draft. He's a combo guard that averages 25.7 points, 7.8 rebounds, 4.5 assists, 2.8 steals, and .8 blocks for Tennesse-Martin college. He was the first division I player to record a quadruple double in a game. Another player I thought was a sleeper is Arizona Reid. He's a small forward that averages 23 points, 11 rebound, and 1.7 steals, on 53% shooting. I think he would help the Knicks a lot, because he's very efficient from the field, and Wilson Chandler is the only small forward on the Knicks that shoots a decent fg percentage. I'm not sure, but I think Reid still has his name in this year's draft.

    Default I like Eric Gordon!

    I know I am contradicting an early post when I said I did not want him, but the more I watch of him the more I see a lot of Tim Hardaway. I dont think he has Timmie's ball handling, but I think he is a better shooter, and Hardaway was an above average NBA shooter. Remember Hardaway was also considered a tweener coming out of UTEP.I predict that Gordon will have some off shooting nights (ala Tim's 0-14 rookie setting performance), but I also think he can be a force down the road. Gordon will at some point average low twenty to upper teens in scoring in the NBA. The word has it is that his shot is effortless. I think this season he probably is a sixth man, this season which I think is good. One thing he can learn from Steph is how to absorb contact and finish, which is a skill he did possess in college. And for what it is worth, he was an Isiah Thomas favorite. Ofcourse that is meaningless unless you're talking the NBA draft.

    Now I still like Augustine, But I think he is better suited for a good team, ie. Rondo on the Celtics. I think he is more of a complemntary type PG, not the game changer we need. Now if we some how get some peices in place I think he could be just what we need, but it looks like we are not going to be able to deal anything and still keep this pick.

    I hear Westbrook doesn't have the best J in the world which worries me because like or not we are stuck with Zach and Eddy which means we need shooters to open the floor for them.

    No, the Knicks have the #6 pick. Only through trade could the Knicks move up to #3.

    Well, rumors are that Minnesota loves Love, and Lopez might have a promise pick from Seattle or Minnesota(only teams he worked out for and met with)

    Bucks love Randolph so I may have to do my whole lottery all over again.

    I don't know, since NBA GM's see value in Mayo, Minnesota will probably trade down, as well as Seattle since guys like Mayo and Bayless have higher value and those teams can get extra. It just makes everything more confusing.

    i have never seen Augustine play but from what i hear he sounds like one of the next big things in regards to the PG position.
    Also cant wait to see this movie when released........

    I really don't like either of the PGs that the Knicks are said to be looking at. Russell Westbrook is a phenomenal athlete and a tenacious defender, but he has a long way to go to prove that he can be an NBA point guard. It is not a foregone conclusion that he will develop the passing skills and feel for the game that will make him a complete and effective player worthy of the #6 pick he is a huge gamble in my opinion.
    On the other hand, I have a great deal of respect for DJ Augustin as I followed him while he was at Texas. The kid can play ball and was a fantastic college hoops player who took his game to the next level after Durant left. He can both score and pass, but I am very wary of his NBA prospects. He is so small that I am afraid he will be totally overwhelmed on the defensive side of the ball. I feel that Augustin could be a Jameer Nelson type player. Nelson was a GREAT college baller but his pro game has never completely took off in large part because he is a huge defensive liability.
    Hope that if the Knicks take Augustin he makes me eat crow, but honestly i would hate for them to pass on Bayless, Gallinari or Alexander with the 6th pick for Westbrook or
    Augustin

    unless bayless' skills have decreased i dont think he's going to land 7 and i like augustine and think hes going to be great but its really hard to pick him over bayless if bayless would still be available if your mock draft came true..i really dont know who'd i'd take augustine or bayless hard choice
