DraftExpress mentions during one of the Eurocamp sessions he pulled down 13 boards and it was noticeable that he would see a board and react to it, not just instictively gravitate towards the hoop like a natural rebounder. There aren't too many teams I'd use a pick on him for, not this early in his career, but given Portland's situation it's a good fit.

fatboy,

Since Asik's status changed since you received my list of preferred players, would it be acceptable to replace him?

I'm thinking James Gist. He's a bit redundant with Landry on the roster, but that's sort of why I like him. He has potential to be a similar player to Landry and is good insurance in that way (if Landry's knees prove to be a lasting problem). He's also 3 years younger and a much longer, more active defender.

Already made the pick. We'll just have wait 5 years of him. I'm sure we'll still both be fans.

But I wish I would have known that. 3 years ago I would have. It's crazy how much my knowledge of the NBA/draft world has fallen off.

With the 58th pick Lakers select another athletic 3 (in addition tio Ariza) to give them an alternative in their weakest position, and choose: Patrick Ewing from Georgetown

Ewing is an unbelievable athlete with pretty good basketball IQ. He developed troughout his last college season and in the end was one of Georgetown's best players. He has a good looking shot and pretty good range, he just hasn't been given much responsibility in Indiana or Gerorgetown - until the last few months of the season. His stats aren't great, but he showed at the draft camp that he is for real. Ewing is already someone you can throw in the game for 10 minutes any given night. He plays hard and has a NBA body, but looking him play you can't help thinking how much better he can actually still get.

With the 59th pick Detroit Pistons select Victor Claver from Spain, one of the best talents in Europe, who I was really surprised to see drop this far.

After the Rudy Gay / Shane Battier "situation" went down, I vowed not to get so involved in the draft. Of course, that didn't hold true and now here I am searching for every nugget of info I can find. And in the end, something completely unexpected will happen and we'll probably end up with some dude I've never even heard of. Oh well.

So...it sucks that Omer Asscrack decided he'd rather play in the women's division or whatever. What a poon. Anyway, somebody should take James Gist here at the end of the mock. He is definitely capable of being an energy guy off the bench.
