2010 NBA Mock Draft - v 3.0

Well, it's been over a month since I dropped an NBA mock draft. I admit I haven't watched a ton of college basketball this year, so this is mostly going off rankings. Nothing too original, but ah well. As always, I do a lottery generator to get the top three picks.

1. Washington Wizards (7) - PG John Wall, Kentucky. You can bet the Wizards won't trade this pick for veteran help. With everything that has happened with the Wiz this season, it just reinforces the opinion that this thing needs to be blown up and rebuilt. What better start then to draft Arenas replacement? Wall is the no doubt first round pick in this draft.

2. Golden St. Warriors (3) - PF Derrick Favors, Georgia Tech. First of all, Don Nelson needs to get out of this league immediately. Does he have gay naked pictures of the Warriors owner? He continues to ruin this franchise. They have a couple good players to build around in Curry, Ellis and Biedrins. Randolph does not look like he has a future on this team. Favors is a big, strong power forward who can still run the floor with the rest of the Warriors.

3. New Jersey Nets (1) - SG Xavier Henry, Kansas.
The Nets could be headed for the worst record of all time, but they at least have a couple big men to build around. Lopez is the real deal and Yi looks like he's finally starting to resemble a player. The Nets would love to get Wall and trade Devin Harris, but if the lottery plays out like this, they could draft a good wing player. Turner is coming back from a bad injury, and Henry is playing great for the top team in the nation. They will have an interesting choice to make. Both players are much more complete then all the one or two dimensional wing players the Nets have now.

4. Minnesota Timberwolves - SG Evan Turner, Ohio St. This makes too much sense for the Wolves to do. Turner was an absolute monster before getting hurt, and I still think he is a future All Star. The Wolves will do good to draft a real shooting guard. They haven't had once since Spreewell was in town.

5. Detroit Pistons - PF Ed Davis, North Carolina. The Pistons are in shambles. The signings of mediocre Villanueva and Gordon have done nothing for the team. On the other hand, they could use some much needed talented young guys. Best believe they won't waste a high first round pick on a guy they don't plan to play like the 03 draft.

6. Philadelphia 76ers - SF Wesley Johnson, Syracuse
7. Indiana Pacers - PF Donatas Motiejunas, Lithuania
8. Utah Jazz (from New York Knicks) - SF Al-Farouq Aminu, Wake Forest
9. Sacramento Kings - C Cole Aldrich, Kansas
10. Milwaukee Bucks - SF Devin Ebanks, West Virginia
11. Los Angeles Clippers - PF Patrick Patterson, Kentucky
12. Memphis Grizzlies - PF/C DeMarcus Cousins, Kentucky
13. New Orleans Hornets - PF/C Greg Monroe, Georgetown
14. Utah Jazz - SG Willie Warren, Oklahoma
15. Chicago Bulls - PG/SG Avery Bradley, Texas
16. Minnesota Timberwolves (from Charlotte Bobcats) - C Solomon Alabi, Florida St.
17. Miami Heat (from Toronto Raptors) - PF Craig Brackins, Iowa St.
18. Miami Heat - PG/SG Malcolm Lee, UCLA
19. Oklahoma City Thunder - PF Gani Lawal, Georgia Tech
20. Houston Rockets - PF Jan Vesely, Czech Republic
21. Portland Trail Blazers - SF Stanley Robinson, Connecticut
22. San Antonio Spurs - SF Damion James, Texas
23. Oklahoma City Thunder (from Phoenix Suns) - PF Jarvis Varnado, Mississippi St.
24. Memphis Grizzlies (from Denver Nuggets) - PF John Henson, North Carolina
25. Atlanta Hawks - C Dexter Pittman, Texas
26. Orlando Magic - PG Sherron Collins, Kansas
27. New Jersey Nets (from Dallas Mavericks) - PF Ekpe Udoh, Baylor
28. Boston Celtics - PG Kalin Lucas, Michigan St.
29. Cleveland Cavaliers - PG/SG Alexey Shved, Russia
30. Los Angeles Lakers - SF Kyle Singler, Duke
