Oooohhhh things are getting hot on the cell lines today...
I penned an article today for Tar Heel Daily that evaluates where the best place would be for Marvin Williams to land. Check it out here at Tar Heel Daily.com...
Well, the Blazers and the Jazz just exchanged picks. In my belief, the Jazz are going after a point guard, who should be Chris Paul
. According to Sam Smith's article in the Chicago Tribune yesterday
, (He also has a great article that will explain some of the crazy salary cap moves that will happen this summer.) Marvin Williams
had a poor workout with the Hawks. Yet, do you really think Atlanta is going to pass on the player, who has the most potential to "blow-up" in this year's Draft.
Here's today's first trade:
According to ESPN.com and a league source: Portland traded the rights to the No. 3 pick to Utah for the rights to the No. 6 and No. 27 picks and the rights to a 2006 first-round pick that the Jazz got from the Detroit Pistons, a league source said.
Most likely that will ensure that Marvin won't be going in the third slot. The Jazz need a point and they already have Andrei Kirilenko
at the four spot. So, I'm not buying Marvin falling to #3.
***The biggest wonder that I have is will Rashad McCants
go before the #17 slot that the Denver Nuggets now hold. I think George Karl
and Kiki Vandeweghe
need a shooter and Rashad could be their answer. And not that GK would love to have a Carolina guy in his line-up. Believe me...He handled Gary Payton for several years...He can handle Rashad.***Sean May
...I'm hoping that he lands with the Warriors at #9. I think he would be a perfect fit for the frontcourt line-up in terms of chemistry with Foyle, Murphy, and Dunleavy
. Yet, I don't know if the Warriors are going to jump for him that early.
I'm also assuming that Mitch Kupchak
may take him at #10 for the Lakers. However, if Hakim Warrick
is alive at either of those spots, in my humble opinion, the Warriors or Lakers would be crazy to not to take a dive on him. I think Warrick is a tremendous player.***Raymond Felton
...With the Jazz now moved up to #3 and the Blazers set in at #6....Don't forget that they have Sebastian Telfair
at point...It seems to me that the best fit for Raymond could be if he falls a bit to #8 for the Knicks.Isiah Thomas
is building the world's smallest team in New York City this year. Why wouldn't Raymond fit in there? Besides, this may be a move that could move Stephon Marbury
to a shooting guard. Yet, before you get your hopes up, don't forget Jamal Crawford
is there as well...How about the Lakers at 10?
Check back in later on...Let's see how this unfolds.Smokin',IronDog
