Sucks that the 'Cats don't have any picks this year. Might not be too many "can't-miss" players, but adding some more young talent never hurts. Then again, we did pick DJ Agustin over Brook Lopez.....

The NBA looked out for the Wizards after the Arenas debacle and aftermath. They needed a reboot after getting rid of their players. The fix was in! Jersey got fuged.

1. Bullets- John Wall

2. 76er's- Evan Turner

3. Brooklyn Nets- Derrick Favors

With Gilbert Arenas playing SG and Wall at PG the "Wizards" are looking dangerous.

I love Evan Turner's game. Have had a soft spot for the 76er's since the AI days.

Telling you the Nets will be a playoff team in their new stadium.

Some Video Interviews:

John Wall

Part 1:

Part 2:

Evan Turner (Turner has a speech impediment because of an overbite when he was young)

Also here's a article on his struggles as a kid. One of his best friends committed suicide 5 years ago and Turner was also hit by a car at the age of 3: http://sports.espn.go.com/ncb/columns/story?columnist=oneil_dana&id=4683505

Derrick Favors (sounds dumb as rocks)

Wes Johnson (my favorite player in the draft. He sounds like he has a good head on his shoulders and he is one of the more articulate ones)

Part 1:

Here's a video of John Wall working out. He's focusing on his shooting, probably his worst part of his game. It's strange to see a right handed player finish around the rim so much with his left. I noticed that at Kentucky and from his high school videos at Word of God.

Here's a video of Paul George. An under the radar prospect whose stock has risen. He's a sophomore out of Fresno State. Hes a versatile player that can play the 2 or 3 but is listed at 6'9".

After watching various videos and reading up on George he has become my favorite player in the draft(don't get that confused with who I think will be the best in this class). I just love his athleticism, and also his ability to rebound and pass.

A NBA Mock Draft.

1. Wizards / John Wall PG, Kentucky

2. 76er's / Evan Turner G/F, Ohio State

3. Nets / Greg Monroe PF, Georgetown

4. T-Wolves / Wesley Johnson SF, Syracuse

5. Kings / DeMarcus Cousins C, Kentucky

6. Warriors / Al Farouq-Aminu SF, Wake Forest

7. Pistons / Derrick Favors PF, Georgia Tech

8. Clippers / Paul George G/F, Fresno State

9. Jazz / Xavier Henry SG, Kansas

10. Pacers / Ekpe Udoh PF, Baylor

11. Hornets / Ed Davis PF. UNC

12. Grizzlies / Luke Babbitt SF, Nevada

13. Raptors / Patrick Peterson PF, Kentucky

14. Rockets / Cole Adrich C, Kansas

15. Bucks / Gordon Haywood SF, Butler

16. Grizzlies (through trade) / Eric Bledsoe PG, Kentucky

17. Bulls / Elliot Williams SG, Memphis

18. Heat / Daniel Orton PF, Kentucky

19. Celtics / Dominique Jones G, USF

20. Spurs / Damion James SF, Texas

21. Thunder / Larry Sanders PF, VCU

22. Trail Blazers / Solomon Alabi C, Florida State

23. Bobcats (bought from T-Wolves) / Avery Bradley G, Texas

24. Hawks / James Anderson SG, Oklahoma State

25. T-Wolves / Kevin Seraphin PF, France

26. Thunder / Hassan Whiteside C, Marshall

27. Nets / Quincy Pondexter SF, Washington

28. T-Wolves / Stanley Robinson SF, UConn

29. Magic / Greivis Vasquez PG, Maryland

30. Wizards / Jordan Crawford SG, Xavier

A first round draft pick is 3 million or so. I do believe buying the pick and landing Avery Bradley would be an excellent investment. It would cost us around 4 million to draft and sign Bradley. Felton wants more than the 5.5 million he made last year. Soon enough i think we all would be saying Felton WHO???

2nd round coming soon.

I don't get the feeling that we'll buy a draft pick when the organization is hemorrhaging money. A trade is far more likely in my opinion. We can pretty much forget whoever we draft making an impact this year though; Larry Brown is still the coach of the Bobcats.

Yeah we are hemorrhaging money but if we rid ourselves of Diaw's contract, Tyson Chandler opts out and we not resign Felton we would actually be in pretty good shape. Also we have Nzar who is a soon to be expiring contract who could help a team till then. There are teams in a lot worse shape. The Celtics have 6 guys under contract and over the cap. The Pacers have a bunch of scrubs and are over the cap. It's not that bad really.
