NO. 8: NEW YORK KNICKS
Much as their fans might like them to try, the Knicks can't actually turn in a draft card with LeBron James' name. So while the faithful wait for that saga to play out after next season, the team will have to look for pieces to fit Mike D'Antoni's system. One approach would be the player least like Eddy Curry.
PANIC!!!!!!! HIDE THE BABIES!!!!! SCREAM!!!!! THE T-WOLVES NOW OWN THE 5,6,18 and another pick I think in the 1st round!! If they keep 2 pics in the top 10, then our hopes of landing an impact player at 8 are lost. Walsh must trade Lee and/or Nate for picks amd trade down and get Maynor. Or send Lee and the #8 to TOR or PHO for Bosh or Amare. I'm officially worried now...” -- SeeWhyDee211
NO. 9 TORONTO RAPTORS
The good news for the Raptors is that with the NHL draft set to get underway Friday, they could draft Rafael Araujo again and nobody in town would notice until at least Monday. Check that; Chris Bosh would notice. And at this point, Bosh is the guy the franchise ought to most intent on pleasing.
Raptors should trade down and draft sam young. NBA ready and very underrated. I think he would be a nice compliment for bosh and bargs.” -- randall-mike
NO. 10: MILWAUKEE BUCKS
Chad Ford assured SportsNation chatters there was a method to the seeming madness of trading Richard Jefferson for a Champions Tour defender in Bruce Bowen and some warm bodies, but we'll believe it when we see it. Getting somebody to high five Andrew Bogut on the free throw line would be a start.
Anyone else think its a joke that Thabeet is rated so much higher than Blair? Am i the only one that watched Dejuan Blair physically manhandle Thabeet like he was a whiny little boy. I would rather take Blair any day.” -- DiablosFury2
