1. Miami Heat- Derrick Rose, PG, Memphis
The Heat need a PG even though Chris Quinn has shown flashes of being able to lead them. Derrick Rose can do it all, and the Heat will benefit tremendously by taking a productive point guard. A lineup consisting of Rose, Wade, Marion, Haslem and Blount could be dangerous next season.
2. Seattle SuperSonics- Michael Beasley, SF, Kansas State
A fierce double-double machine that will give you 20 and 10 on an off night. His presence on the Sonics alongside Kevin Durant will make the Sonics a surprise darkhorse team to watch out for next season.
3. Memphis Grizzlies- Brook Lopez, F/C, Stanford
With the loss of Pau Gasol, the Grizzlies need a big man to take over the role. Lopez has great offensive potential, and with a slight upgrade to his defense, will be a force to be reckoned with very soon. This is a young team that could be really good in the East.
4. Minnesota Timberwolves- Eric Gordon, SG, Indiana
Gordon will give the Wolves a high scoring threat who they will welcome happily. They skip on Bayless here only because Randy Foye is getting the job done, and Bayless would just be seeing the bench.
5. New York Knicks- Jerryd Bayless, PG, Arizona
Point guard is the main position the Knicks need to be worried about in the draft. With Rose gone by now, Bayless is the obvious best point guard still on the board. Also, a backcourt combination of Bayless and Jamal Crawford could be deadly.
6. Los Angeles Clippers- O.J. Mayo, SG, USC
Mayo has tremendous upside...but also tremendous downside and could fall lower, although this is not a bad spot for him to go. The shooting guards that the Clippers have now aren't getting the job done, and Mayo could be the answer. (Minus the issues he has going on right now.)
7. Milwaukee Bucks- Anthony Randolph, SF, LSU
I don't think this is too early for Randolph to go. The Bucks could use Randolph in the future if not now. I think he will be able to start, but if not, he should have a decent season off the bench. I don't see Bobby Simmons or Desmond Mason doing enough right now for the Bucks.
8. Charlotte Bobcats- Kevin Love, F/C, UCLA
A big man next to Emeka Okafor will give the Bobcats a young, strong frountcourt that will keep the Bobcats in possible playoff contention a couple of years down the road. Many critics say that Love can't adapt to the NBA-style of play, but I think he can do well. Not great, but enough to silence the critics.
9. Chicago Bulls- DeAndre Jordan, C, Texas A&M
The center position should be the Bulls main concern in this draft. Jordan gives them a great big inside presence that they could desperately use. The scary thing is, he's only a freshman.
10. New Jersey Nets- Roy Hibbert, C, Georgetown
Hibbert's offensive abilities aren't superb, maybe, but his defensive presence inside will give the Nets a great big body that can help shut down some of the big men in the East. There is a lot of risk that goes with this pick, but I think it's the right one because I believe Hibbert is a major sleeper pick who can help out a lot of teams with his 7'2 frame.
Rest to come at a later date...
