    I hope we get either perry jones, or terrence jones or irving. Perry jones is our ideal SF and looks to have a game similar to Kevin Durant.

    Our current roster have so many holes that drafting anyone of those players would improve our team. NBA theory has it, to build a successful team, you start with a centre or pg, so that give us the choice of either kanter or Irving. Kanter has been a bit of a mystery man, different website list his height differently, I've seen it from 6'9 all the way to 6'11, either way he's big and strong (the kid wants to be wrestler one day and you can bet that he'll be the muscle that raps been craving for years.) and he's skilled.
    Then. We have kyrie Irving, who's been compared to Chris Paul already, he is a natural pg, lighting quick, can score, decent size at 6'2. It all depends on how the ping pong ball falls.

    if neither are available, then we can go after the glut of small forwards this draft possess, like Perry, Terrence, and barnes. All of them would be fine by me.

    *special notice: bleacher report suggested that we should look into drafting the Canadian boys with a late first rounder, Tristan thompson and Cory joseph if he goes. Cause you know these boys won't "bosh" out on toronto. Should we look into drafting them b/c they are Canadian?

    I think it would be nice to have a canadian player on our roster but at this point we draft best player available. For a late pick i was thinking a guy like Jimmer Fredette. Im thinking were gonna end up moving Miamis draft pick to get a higher one. its to far in the future to really think about the second 1st round pick IMO.

    I think Jimmer is a flat out baller, he gets the "not athletic enough" at th NBA level label, but watching him play you see much more. Looking at his body from this year to last year you see a difference, he has brought his body fat down and looks a little quicker. He can make shots from anywhere, he has the deep 3 spotting up or shooting off the dribble, is crafty in the lane, and has up and unders and flip shots as well. AS a late first round pick/early second you could be getting a very solid PG who will have a 10 + year career in the league. I see a better shooting version of Andre Miller.

    One guy that is starting to intrigue me is Josh Selby. I have not watched a full game but I am wondering if he can be a Russell Westbrook type player. Westbrook was questioned about playing the 1 as he played with Darren Collison. Both played on very talented college teams. Westbrook 6'3"/187lbs, Selby 6'2"/183lbs. Westbrook actually only played 9 mins per game in his FR year. He left after 2 years at UCLA. Selby is a FR now putting up similar numbers to Westbrook in his second year - FG% worse but 3P% and FT% much better, STL about the same, AST a little lower (3 vs 4.3), TO a little higher.

    Selby might be a consideration if they are drafting 6-10. It seems to me he could be a sleeper this year. Oh yeah, and he won the McDonald's All-American dunk contest last year. Check out his profile at Draft Express:

    http://www.draftexpress.com/profile/Josh-Selby-5682/

    He was also the number one recruit out of high school according to this ESPN story:

    yeah big fan of selby. he's a tweener for sure but i think it could definitely work out. in fact, if we did end up with a top 3 or 4 draft pick id love to see them trade down with a team that has a couple mid range 1st rounders and grab selby and honeycutt. two needs taken care of.

    Maybe I haven't seen enough of him, but Derrick Williams looks like a solid player, but that's about it. Certainly not on the level of an Irving.

    I am finding nbadraft.net to be one of the less realistic sites out there. Maybe I'm wrong...

    The Kings would take Irving over Jones. They've been looking for a true PG to play with Evans.

    Yeah, I take draftexpress a little more seriously than nbadraft.net. At the #4 spot, they have Jared Sullinger. I wouldn't be disappointed with that.

    NBADraft.net seems to not really care about accuracy until a couple of months before the draft. They had been more accurate in their final mock drafts in their predictions than DraftExpress in previous years, although I don't know about last year.

    Once the lottery occurs, everything starts to take shape and team needs are taken into consideration.

    Very true. One thing I have noticed is all the 'experts' (haha) have said the only guy with franchise material is Irving.
