I thought I would make this thread just to separate actual news regarding the draft...
Rick Bonnell: Rich Cho said current players would be immaterial to who they pick at No. 4. Says size, rebounding, shooting greatest needs. Twitter @rick_bonnell
To my knowledge, this mean BPA.
Look for new Minnesota Timberwolves president of basketball operations Flip Saunders to engage Charlotte, holders of the No. 4 pick in next month's draft, in trade talks. According to league sources, Saunders is a big fan of Indiana guard Victor Oladipo, and the only way to get him is to move up from the ninth-spot. 1500 ESPN
There could definitely be a Derrick Williams, 9th overall pick for 4th overall pick trade in the works.
Might former Kentucky center Nerlens Noel still be available when the Charlotte Bobcats pick fourth on June 27? A player-personnel executive connected to a lottery team thinks that’s a real possibility, despite Noel often being listed as the first or second pick in various mock drafts. This executive, speaking on condition of anonymity because he’s not authorized to give pre-draft interviews, predicts the first three picks will be some order of Nevada-Las Vegas forward Anthony Bennett, Kansas shooting guard Ben McLemore and Georgetown forward Otto Porter, Jr. Charlotte Observer
Regarding Nerlens Noel being available when the Hornets pick
As we've previously reported, he's seriously in the mix with the Cavs for the No. 1 pick, with some sources indicating the Cavs could be moving his direction (I'm told Noel, Porter and Oladipo are the others). The Bobcats are also very high on Len, as are the Suns and Pelicans. ESPN.com
Everyone is interested in Alex Len apparently (including Cleveland)
Virtually every team at the top of the draft is still considering McLemore. The Magic, Bobcats and Suns look like the most plausible destinations. ESPN.com
ESPN thinks Charlotte is a good destination for McLemore
