Posted: February 19, 2013 in Uncategorized

Third Time

1. Charlotte Bobcats- Ben McLemore- SG- Kansas

- McLemore is now the number one player on most people’s boards, as he an elite athlete and shooter. He would be a great fit in Charlotte, as they are starved for offense.

2. Cleveland Cavaliers- Alex Len- C- Maryland

- An offensive center would be fantastic for the Cavs and the massive Len is a franchise caliber center and would be fantastic next to Tristan Thompson.

3. Phoenix Suns- Shabazz Muhammad- G/F- UCLA

- Muhammad may be the best overall offensive player in the draft and is a fantastic athlete and defender, with major upside and intangibles. Phoenix needs a perimeter scorer and a go-to player and Muhammad could become both of those immediately for these Suns.

4. New Orleans Hornets- Cody Zeller- C- Indiana

- An offensive center to go with Anthony Davis, would be the right move for the Hornets and Zeller is the most offensively gifted center in the draft.

5. Washington Wizards- Nerlens Noel- C- Kentucky

- Torn ACL or not, Noel is still a top 10 pick and as a defensive cornerstone at center, he would give the Wizards exactly what they need.

6. Sacramento Kings- Michael Carter Williams- PG- Syracuse

- The best passing point guard in the nation going to the Kings, sign them up.

7. Oklahoma City Thunder (From Tor)- Anthony Bennett- PF- UNLV

9. Orlando Magic- Marcus Smart- PG- Oklahoma State

- The Magic need a long-term point guard and Smart could be a star.

10. Minnesota Timberwolves- Alex Poythress- SF-Kentucky

- Minny needs perimeter help and the athletic Poythress could be an excellent two-way player.

11. Dallas Mavericks- Mason Plumlee- F/C- Duke

- An excellent scorer and rebounder, Plumlee is a blue-collar player who could start in the NBA. The Mavericks need a long-term center and he would be a good fit on the Mavericks, who will be looking for an immediate performer.

12. Portland Trailblazers- Victor Oladipo- SG- Indiana

- Oladipo is a very gifted shooter and scorer and would be an excellent sixth man for the Trailblazers.

13. Milwaukee Bucks- Archie Goodwin- SG- Kentucky

A gifted scorer, he could become the team’s starting shooting guard if Monte Ellis moves on. He has the size and shooting that would go well with Brandon Jennings.

14. Utah Jazz- Trey Burke- PG- Michigan

15. Miami Heat (from PHI)- Isaiah Austin- PF/C- Baylor

17. Atlanta Hawks- Dario Saric- SF- Croatia

- A very talented small forward, who could become their starting small forward someday. He may take time, but he is a fantastic long-term prospect.

18. Boston Celtics- Jamaal Franklin- SG- San Diego State

24. Minnesota Timberwolves (from Mem)- Jeff Withey- C- Kansas

- A defensive center to go along with the offensive games of Kevin Love and Nikola Pekovic.

25. Chicago Bulls- Willie Cauley Stein- C- Kentucky

- An excellent center prospect, while raw, could be a big time producer down the road.

26. New York Knicks- Gorgui Dieng- C- Louisville

- An excellent defender and rebounder who would add much needed frontcourt size and defense to the Knickerbockers.

27. San Antonio Spurs- Brandon Paul- SG- Illinois

- A scoring guard to help off the bench and one day replace Manu Ginobili.

28. Los Angeles Clippers- Myck Kabongo- PG- Texas

    I love the selection by the Cavs but i highly dout they will be picking at 2. They been a .500 since the Memphis trade. I think they will be picking in the 5-8 range and if len if off the board Porter would be another player that would fit the Cavs like a glove.
