    The draft - and all the mock drafts - could get totally messed up if/when some/all of the rumored deals start going down!

    - Charlotte trading down to swap #2/#4 with Cleveland, while also picking up Cleveland's 2nd 1st round pick (#24) --> Cleveland would likely draft Beal/MKG, while Charlotte would draft Barnes (MJ's NC connection)
    - Sacramento & Toronto both rumored to be trading down with Houston's #14/16 picks; rumor has it that #5 & #8 would then get flipped to a suddenly rebuilding Orlando team
    - Golden State possibly trading #7 for a wing (although it sounds like they've soured on Deng and his injury risk)
    - Portland (#6 and/or #11) and New Orleans (#10) both apparently being open to trading out/down


    In a related story, I just read on ESPN that Sullinger wasn't invited by the NBA to their draft green room. Usually the top 12-16 picks or so get invited, so it sounds like they expect Sullinger to drop out of the lottery (at least).


    Thursday can't get here soon enough!

    This is going to be the most unproductive work week ever. I hope the draft is worth getting canned for...

    That Cunningham kid is impressive. Poor man's Russel Westbrook.

    FIXED: I have confirmed thru two credible sources that Rockets' Kyle Lowry to the Raptors for the 8th overall pick is "heating up" #NBADraft

    Raptors better not fxck this up. Too much young hard working talent that can make our team better. Do i trust the front office? No. My Raptors optimisim for the near future hangs on what they do with this pick.

    Ps. Whats with the rivers hate he actually wants to play here nd see our team win now that alone says alot. 19 nd was showing improvement near end of the season. Not saying hes our guy but i dont see it as a draft day loss

    I don't get how Houston can even get both 5th and 8th picks with their 14, 16, Lowry & fillers .... and have enough to trade for Dwight ?

    Isn't there a problem placing greater emphasis on Rivers' opinion of Toronto, over his actual playing abilities?

    If this deal goes down without a lotto pick coming back, time to find a carton of eggs (along with Colangelo's home address).

    Did we really just spend the last year stinking it up for Kyle Lowry???

    Agreed. Lowry is not worth #8 straight-up. Especially if Nash is still in play for the Raptors.

    Its not a matter of placing greater emphasis. Mindstate nd playing ability are the two most linked characteristcs in basketball. Compare bayless nd jarret jacks attitude too Mcgrady nd turkoglu. Basketball is a team sport better desire for the team means smarter decisions on the court

    Latest DX mock has Lillard to Portland at 6 and Waiters to Golden State at 7. They have us taking Lamb at 8 and the Pistons taking Drummond at 9. If Drummond is there at 8, we gotta take a long hard look at him.
