Draft is tonight at 7. Top 2 picks are locked as Blake Griffen (STUD) and Hasheem Thabeet (Bust IMO).

OKC is expected to pick Ricky Rubio as of right now, BUT could also take Arizona State SG, James Harden. Rubio is a better player, but Harden is no slouch and fills one of the Thunder's biggest needs.

Stephen Curry has seen his stock rise, and could go as high as four, but won't get past 8 to the Knicks. While Curry may never be a superstar, his shooting ability, and the fact he can create his own shot make him a very attractive player.

Johnny Flynn is another guy that could go as high as four, but he won't last past 10 as the Bucks are heads over heels in love with the guy.

Depending on what OKC do, the rest of the lotto will be very interesting, no more so than the Toronto Raptors. The Raptors are probably gonna take USC SG DeMar DeRozan, but are also high on Johnny Flynn, UCLA PG Jrue Holliday, and Wake Forrest SF James Johnson. Holliday isn't ready offensively for the NBA, but can come in right away and defend either PG or SGs. Johnson could develop into a Shawn Marion like player.

The Knicks just bought the Lakers' first round pick. This could be more ammo as they love Rubio and could offer the Thunder the 8, 29, and David Lee in a S&T with the Thunder for Rubio's draft rights. Another possibilty is the fact the Knicks want to draft Jack McClinton.

The Thunder may have given Jon Brockman of Washington a garuntee with their second pick. Brockman isn't a great prospect, but his rebounding will help.

One prospect who could see himself slide a lot tonight is Brandon Jennings. Going to Italy didn't turn out how he hoped it would as he really struggled running a team when he actually was given a chance. While teams love his skill, he is nowhere near ready to play right now. He could go to the Bucks or Pacers, but he might see himself fall just a little bit.

Can't wait. I'm still holding out a little hope that Sixers make a move into the top 10, but it's doubtful. Sixers seem to really like Eric Maynor, PG out of VCU, so if he's there at 17, I can definately seeing us taking him or Ty Lawson if Maynor isn't there.

I'd love to see us make a move for a 2nd round pick, and then look at someone like Jack McClinton.

man did you guys have a huge day. between getting jefferson and blair in the 2nd round i think the spurs put themselves right back into possible ring contention. just plain smart.

I can't believe Blair fell to 37.Not to mention the Spurs might sign Sheed and thats looking pretty good so far...If not, things are looking pretty good for a decent FA big.Also Mahimni and Splitter are in the bullpen.Things are looking up for the Spurs.

i couldn't believe that either - thought for sure he would be at worst a mid to late 1st rounder. very nice draft.

the magic are apparently in the sheed hunt too - whoever gets him will be a force. i don't really see what the magic's hurry to win is - howard and nelson are so young. but the spurs need to win now.

DeJuan Blair fell because he has no ACL in either of his knees. Thing is, it's been that way since High School so nobody quite understands the big deal. He's got the strength, energy, and rebounding to be in the Spurs rotation next year, AND could easily start as he compliments Duncan perfectly.

McClinton should also get a lot of burn cause he is basically Eddie House with defense.

Wished That Ty Lawson Would Have Fell To The Hawks At 19...

No Sheed...Oh well, hopefully McDyess then.
