Mock Draft 1-8 because anything below that doesn't matter
1 - LA Clippers - Blake Griffin - traded to NY for Eddy Curry, Jared Jefferies and Allan Houston + Metrocard as team motivational speaker
2 - Memphis - Ricky Rubio - Followed by trading Mike Conley to Portland
3 - Oklahoma - Hasheem Thabeet - Tough choice between him or Harden..I think they have enough offense, so having this guy protecting the paint can make them a contender.
4 - Sacramento - Brandon Jennings - They took a C and PF the past 2 years, and have no need for a SG so they go with best available PG.
5 - Washington - James Harden - Best available player here. I hope he falls to the Knicks, but I think he goes to Washington. Good fit there.
6 - Minnesota - Earl Clark - They would have loved to get Brandon Jennings, but Clark fills a need at SF. I think they wind up making a trade for Heinrich this offseason anyway to fill in at PG.
7 - Golden State - Jordan Hill - They have 17 SG, so I think they go different and take the best available big man.
8 - New York - Demar Derozan - Knicks will be difficult to predict in that you can argue 10 different players being the best available at #8. I say just go with the guy with the most upside in 2010+. You hope with another year of experience he can further develop and slowly reach his potential.
9 - Toronto - Gerald Henderson - Fills a need at SG.
10- Milwaukee - Tyreke Evans - They are set at PG, SG, SF for now..but I could see them rebuilding after this year and letting Michael Redd walk as a FA. For now Evans can add depth to bench and eventually being a starter for them in 2010.
11 - New Jersey - Dajuan Blair - Would form a nice rotation with Yi as they are both completely opposite players that are strong in the areas the other is weak.
12 - Charlotte - Chase Budinger - They need a SG. Budinger played SG last year I believe, but projects to be more of a SF. Difficult spot for them since the best players available are PG and they don't have a need for that.
13 - Indiana - Stephon Curry - Adds depth in PG/SG with Jack and Ford.
14 - Phoenix - Eric Maynor - Need a PG for when Nash leaves. Have plenty to choose from.
15 - Detroit - Ty Lawson - They look like they will tear the team up after this season. Lawson and Stuckey is a nice backcourt to build around.
16 - Chicago - Sam Young - Already one of the deepest teams in the league..not sure what they will do here. Williams I guess adds to depth at SG/SF and brings them a great defensive player off the bench.
17 - Philadelphia - Terrence Williams - Need at SG
18 - Minnesota - Jonny Flynn - Need at PG
19 - Atlanta - BJ Mullens - Need at C. move Hortford to PF.
20 - Utah - James Johnson - Adds some toughness and depth at SF/PF.
going to stop at 20, maybe edit the rest later.
