This is what allowed Danny to grab Green and Jefferson. Too bad he is an aweful trader.


Does Davis remind anyone else of a Robert "Tractor" Traylor?


Well Taylor was 6-7/325, compared to 6-9/290, but if he can be traded for Dirk...

I thought both of those 2 were projected to be in the early 2nd round.

I saw Pruitt as high as the late teens in a couple of mocks. Chad ford had Davis going to the sixers at 21 in his last mock. Ford actually called him a potenial steal there.

Hollinger also rated him the 12th best college prospect (higher than Jeff Green :b )

Ah, I don't get ESPN insider so I didn't know Ford had either of those guys that high. Both the sources I was looking at (nbadraft.net and draftexpress.com) didn't have them in the first round.

Edit: Pruitt was 29 on nbadraft.net

Sun Yue will be a good one, a PG at 5-9 who does everything from rebounding, blocking, defending and passing. Shooting needs a little work, but he has a lot of athleticism, could be a big fantasy producer if he pays off. Like him way more than Yi Jianlian at his spot

Not that I was much of an NBA fan to begin with, but now living in San Antonio you can't help but follow it. My Philly connection begs me to root for the Sixers, but after trading AI and now passing up Wright and Thornton (the one guy I really wanted them to take) for Thaddeus Young, I just can't pull for that team. Huge Durant fan, so I guess I'll be rooting for the Sonics from this point on.
