    NBA Draft Day Deals






    Well it looks like the Raps have made a pretty significant deal sending T.J. Ford, Rasto Nesterovic and the 17th pick to Indiana for Jermaine O'neal. Should Bolster the Raps, and make them a strong contender in the East, finally having a big man. This should take a lot of pressure off Bosh.

    A look at some players the Knicks could take Thursday:

    Jerryd Bayless, 6-3, PG, Arizona: A combo guard who is more comfortable shooting than running a team. Averaged 19.7 points for Arizona, a program that has produced a number of terrific NBA guards.

    Eric Gordon, 6-4, SG, Indiana: An undersized shooting guard who averaged 20.9 points as a freshman.

    Danilo Gallinari, 6-8, SF, Italy: The top international prospect in the draft. Has terrific ball skills for a big man but needs to improve his outside shooting. It is also worth noting that the last foreign-born player selected in the first round by the Knicks was Frederic Weis.

    Russell Westbrook, 6-3, PG, UCLA: Big-time athlete who has the ability to be lock-down defender. Averaged 12.7 points last season for Bruins, including a 22-point performance in their Final Four loss to Memphis.

    D.J. Augustin, 6-0, PG, Texas: A proven leader with quickness and three-point range. But he’s small and could be a liability on the defensive end. Similar to Grizzlies guard Mike Conley Jr.

    Bobcats obtain 20th pick from Nuggets

    By MIKE CRANSTON, AP Sports Writer Jun 25, 8:26 pm EDT
    CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP)—The Charlotte Bobcats wanted to load up on draft picks. The Denver Nuggets were happy to sit out the entire draft.



    The Nuggets traded the 20th pick to the Bobcats on Wednesday in exchange for a future, protected first-round pick. The Bobcats, who also hold the ninth pick on Thursday, may now get a chance to address needs at center and point guard.
    The Nuggets, meanwhile, will have no picks on Thursday. Denver, which was swept in the first round of the playoffs by the Los Angeles Lakers, had already traded its second-round choice to Seattle.
    Not having a first-round pick saves the salary cap-strapped Nuggets from having to the pay the luxury tax on a guaranteed rookie contract.

    “Tough roster to make. You look at a young guy coming in, where does he go?” said Nuggets vice president of basketball operations Mark Warkentien. “Again, you look at the positions and it’s tough finding minutes for young guys.”
    Denver will get Charlotte’s first-round pick next season if the Bobcats make the playoffs. If they don’t, Charlotte keeps it. The pick would then be protected by a sliding scale, where Charlotte would retain it if it’s in the top 12 in 2010, top 10 in 2011, top eight in 2012 and top three in 2013. Charlotte would have no protection for the pick in 2014.
    But the Bobcats are determined to make the playoffs for the first time next season, and part-owner Michael Jordan and new coach Larry Brown will have a chance to improve the roster Thursday night.
    The Bobcats could have their eye on 7-foot-2 center Roy Hibbert of Georgetown with the 20th pick. The Bobcats were impressed with Hibbert during a predraft workout earlier this month. Charlotte has a desperate need up front after consistently getting outrebounded last season. Hibbert is expected to go late in the first round.
    Charlotte also could take a big man at No. 9, or a point guard if Russell Westbrook of UCLA is still available. The Bobcats have no point guard on the roster after starter Raymond Felton.
    Another scenario would be Charlotte packaging both picks to move up from the ninth spot. General manager Rod Higgins said Wednesday the Bobcats had interest in getting a higher pick.
    The future first-round picks give the Nuggets more options in future trade talk. Warkentien compared it to walking around with a “loaded gun” during negotiations.
    “There is a myriad of possibilities of what you can do with this. We love the flexibility,” Warkentien said. “Good businesses remain flexible and we have a lot of flexibility now.”
    AP Sports Writer Pat Graham in Denver contributed to this report.

    It just shows the organization is happy to be a mediocre team, they obliviously don't want to improve the team with a decent defender or a player who can score down low

    Gee... I don't know about that... I think it makes the bench more shallow now. But we will see next season whether or not this works out...
