I'd say it's Okc and Mia.
Not so much about the players but the cap space
and draft picks each team is creating/would be getting in the future.

Presti is a genius..drafting Bledsoe, trading him to the clippers for a future 1st rounder...the clips will forever be in the lotto until Sterling leaves.

I'm from the bay and really wanted the dubs to get Cousins... Cousins went to Sac the pick before, so I was rooting for them to choose Monroe.. That would've been a great fit imo... imagine, Curry x Ellis x Randolph x Monroe... But larry riley picks Udoh... I mean he isn't bad i guess but when you have a chance to pick up a player like Monroe (who i believe is gonna have a nice career) you gotta pick him...

Who else ****ed up??

Cool. Thanks for the input. I see alot of people saying he is instant offense and could be one of those late 1st round scorers that could help out a good team. With or without Joe Johnson, we still have a good team. So I was hoping the 2 Crawfords can produce for us.

Thanks again, and I believe the Lakers got the 2 biggest steals of the night. Pistons did too with Terrico White, but that is a homer pick because I wanted Terrico on the Hawks since he declared.

portland is the worst, not really for the players they got, but just for the fact they fired their gm an hour before the draft, effective right after the draft. firing him alone is downright ******** because he is easily a top 5 gm in the league, but an hour before the draft? just classless.

The grizz did good Xavier Henry is good and Greivis Vasquez is a good pick at 28. He can get to the rim and he got a real good jumper.

I like what the pacers did this year Paul George could end up being the steal of the draft and Lance Stephenson in the 2nd. If both of these kids pan out the pacers could end up with really good team.

And the magic Orton who better than Howard for this kid to learn from.

Good luck with that.

06-25-2010, 01:22 AM
Kings are the winners...Some may say that Cousins is a risk...but its a pick that is well worth the risk. If Cousins turns out to be legit...The Kings will have one of the best 1-2 punches in the West with Tyreke/Cousins. As John Calipari and Jay Bilas said: The west just got a lot scarier.

Jazz are the losers...I would say Knicks but the draft doesnt really matter all that much for them anyway. As far as the Jazz go...I dont think Gordon Hayward will fit in with them...but even if he does...I dont think he is the kind of player that will really put them over the top. They had an opportunity to take a chance and grab a potential star...I would have gone with Paul George.

DerekRE_3
06-25-2010, 01:24 AM

Donte Green is a SG/SF, so yeah I wouldn't mention him. Like gigantes said, Dalembert is expiring. I would think the Kings bring Whiteside along slowly, he may see time in the D-League while Cousins battles with Dalembert for the starting job.

And the Kings have said they aren't trading Cousins or Whiteside.

*Silver&Black*
06-25-2010, 01:26 AM
I would be shocked if Cousins isn't starting for the Kings opening day. He was the best college player last year that got over-shadowed by Wall.

Cousins may not win ROY (being guards usually do, since the ball is in their hands more), but he could be the best player in this draft, when it's all said and done.

Poor 76ers should of picked him 2nd. Now they got 3 wing players, looking like the Hawks 4-5 years ago.

RadiantShot
06-25-2010, 01:28 AM
Sacramento did the best in this draft, followed by Oklahoma City, then maybe Detroit?

Wrigheyes4MVP
06-25-2010, 01:28 AM
Well, Cousins will have to prove that he is a starter...but if he plays well in preseason, summer league, or whatever...he will start either at PF or C.

No matter what...he will get plenty of minutes...even if he has to come of the bench at first.

Presti always has some tricks up his sleeve. The only draft day move that was a real no brainer for him was Kevin Durant. Everything else has been more about just going with what he's feeling, and who he really thinks will be the best for our organization. You never really know what he's thinking, but it usually works out, at least it has so far. So I'll have to trust what he's doing becuz whether I agree with it or not, it's probably the RIGHT move. He's here for one reason and one reason only.....to build us a winner, so we've gotta step back and let him do his job.

Tony_Starks
06-25-2010, 01:41 AM

I think that may very well be the sleeper pick of the draft. Him and Crawford for ATL. When that happened I was like "how do the Spurs do this every year?" Foreal I think they have the best scouting in the league.

Also Memphis, Jersey, and OKC did really good jobs too.

The Knicks blew it, they should've got the hometown boy, I forget his name. He could've been a real value pick for them. The Wolves were ehhh.

central2003
06-25-2010, 01:42 AM
NBA Tv Kenney Smith Said Tyreke Evans will Have All-Star Year and Cousins will Just plain Dominate and he went to the perfect team to do that.. They said Kings will Fight for that 8th spot(this year) and the difference maker will Be Tyreke Evans and Cousins... plus adding a center (whiteside) just made their Backcourt that deeper esp in 2-3 years he will be a center who should be starting but will be most likely used as a back up for Cousins.. Kings will be a very scary team for year to come now ..

People are quick to give the Kings the best draft and I'm a bit perplexed. I'm not saying the Kings had a bad draft but you have to admit they sure overlooked perceived risks in their drafting. Cousins and Whiteside could amount to jackshit because they each do have major character flaws, I'm just showing the other side of it.

You're right. The Kings could hit a grand slam or a pop fly. I think these were risks they had to take though. The potential of a Cousins Reke combo was too good to pass up at #5. Then at #33 Whiteside was still there and even though he has high bust potential it's not much a risk in the 2nd round.

I will say this though, Geoff Petrie's draft record speaks for itself:

1996: Peja Stojakovic (#14) - Was at one point an MVP candidate
2000: Hedo Turkoglu (#16) - In a draft loaded with busts, Petrie found one of the few good players
2001: Gerald Wallace (#25): 3rd place in DPOY voting this year, all star, 1st team all defense
2004: Kevin Martin (#26): People said he shouldn't have been drafted, turned into a 24 PPG scorer
2009: Tyreke Evans (#4): ROY, has the potential to be a very special player

He also picked up some good role players in Jason Thompson (#12) and Francisco Garcia (#23) in other drafts.

Kings should be up there, but with only two picks, and no movement on draft day, it's hard to give them number one. I mean, they got lucky, and two great prospects fell into their laps. Now, that being said, they have an insane amount of talent at the PF/C positions. Landry/Thompson/Cousins/Whiteside/Dalembert/Brockman is a huge, tough front line. It's actually too good. They'll need to consolidate some of that talent some how, perhaps turn some of it into a shooting guard to put next to Tyreke.

I agree that they made the correct decisions, like you said it's just too early to tell. This argument just proves how idiotic it is to give draft grades a few hours after it's over.

*Silver&Black*
06-25-2010, 01:55 AM
im still wondering how the **** Whiteside fell to 33.

I don't know about the other teams, but Hawks are cheap and wanted to sell the 31st pick when we have a need for a back-up rotational center for match-ups against guys like D Howard.

We could of had a great draft for our needs if we drafted Whiteside. Him and Jordan Crawford would of been nice. But for right now, I am happy with Crawford.

BradyIsTheMan12
06-25-2010, 01:55 AM

Because of character issues and he is pretty raw. His interview with Chad Ford was pretty awful if you ask me. Keep in mind I also wanted my team to think about drafting him, that's just why eh didn't go sooner.

Am I just being a Homer, or does anyone else think Jordan Crawford can help the Hawks sooner rather than later?

The kid can play 20 ppg in college so we know he can score. He has deep range, probably a better 3 point shooter then JJ. He will be a rookie so we dont have to worry about him haviong the superstar mentality. He can play off the ball but also create..I like the pick I just wish the Hawks would have took Solomon Alabi at 31...Instead of another soft *** International Player

How the hell are they going to fit all of these guys in? Did they trade for Dalembert just to let him rot on the bench? Who is the odd man out here...PF and C make up half of their roster. There has to be some kind of trade looming here..

not sure I like the draft, but anderson can do nothing without a screen or an open look. He could never play like PP, perhaps Ray if he turns into one of the greatest long distance shooters of all time - odds of that are about 1 in 27.

Lots of people said Sacramento screwed up last year taking Tyreke Evans.

You can't judge a draft until 3-5 years out. We'll have to wait and see.

???..You can judge a draft after 1 year. See, your boy, Stephen Curry. It's apparant he is already a good player in this league. So you cant judge that draft??

Got to some love to the Memphis Grizzlies, getting some good player even after the whole, "No one wants to play here thing." Drafting Henry, makes you think they are ready to move on with or without Rudy Gay.

The kings starting lineup is going to look like this
pg Udrih
Sg Evans
Sf Greene
PF Cousins
C Whiteside

Evans may play point and sf could be someone else but no team is going to drive on the kings cuz they have ridiculous shot blockers. I wish the sixers traded a future first rounder and iggy to get cousins. you guys are gonna have a hell of a team

I'm happy with Detroit's draft. Monroe and White look pretty good in their college highlights.

I think the Jazz had a pretty bad draft, I gave them a C- in the draft grading. Hayward was a reach and nobody knows who Jeremy Evans is.

Anyway OKC had the best draft. Getting Cole Aldrich and then trading Eric Bledsoe for a future first rounder from the Clippers. Not to mention getting Daequan Cook.

Yea i think the Kings as well. Cousins and I cant believe how Whiteside fell to them. They are very strong through the middle.

I know it was unbelivable I cant belive the knicks picked fileds over him i so mad :mad: lol

no love for the spurs with anderson?

he fell its not like they worked magic... it had a bit of luck and they picked the best player available who'd really help their team. It was an easy decision.

Detroit Pistons ! Picked up Monroe who is the best skilled big man, hopefully he can start right away and pans out. Drafting a combo guard might mean stuckey or rip mayb traded. And he could fill in behin ben gordon? Idk. I think they had a good draft not just because there my faborite team but because they filled a need. Also tje kings had a great draft. I wanted whiteside! Lol. Wizards did great with wall and timberwolves also filled needs

I would be shocked if Cousins isn't starting for the Kings opening day. He was the best college player last year that got over-shadowed by Wall.

Cousins may not win ROY (being guards usually do, since the ball is in their hands more), but he could be the best player in this draft, when it's all said and done.

Poor 76ers should of picked him 2nd. Now they got 3 wing players, looking like the Hawks 4-5 years ago.

I know right we pass on the POY and the type of player in which we need right now and for the future. We were so dumb. But last I counted 2 teams also passed on him after us. So whats your point. 3 wing guys? Don't you think we're looking to make a trade. Off season doesn't complete after the draft is over bub.

I disliked the Wolves draft. I think they should of took a chance on whiteside with one of those later picks before he was drafted.

Worst drafts in my opinion were Minnesota, Washington, and Golden State. The Wolves and Wizards could have come away with alot more in my opinion.

Sorry about bringing up the 76ers since no one else cares.

This

How the hell are they going to fit all of these guys in? Did they trade for Dalembert just to let him rot on the bench? Who is the odd man out here...PF and C make up half of their roster. There has to be some kind of trade looming here..

They fit them in easily. There's no logjam in Sacramento.

Whiteside is clearly not ready to make much of an impact at all this year (see his interview issues that caused him to drop into the 2nd round).

Dalembert is a lame duck. He has a massive expiring that will be traded at the deadline or will be walking at the end of the season.

For this season the Kings will go with Thompson/Landry/Dalembert/Cousins as a PF/C rotation.

Once Dalembert is gone and/or Whiteside is ready, then you replace Dalembert with Whiteside, and you have a tough frontcourt for the future.

So from your post, really the only trade I can see that's "looming" would be Dalembert at some point this season, but who knows.

The Pistons had the worst Big man rotation in the NBA and they drafted Monroe who many people say is the most skilled and most NBA ready big to be drafted. So I would think Detroit had one of the best drafts this year.

The Kings won because they got the best big man in the draft with the fifth pick.
