NBA Draft 2008

(somewhere in the nether regions of the internet the original version of this post disappeared. I'm reposting it just for a reference point. Hopefully/possibly the comments can be resurrected by our host provider. -Big Chris)

Brian Robinson and Co. are at Jeff Green's party. For those who are stuck at work or home or simply can't make it to the draft day party, this is your thread. I expect the comments to be fast and furious tonight (especially if we draft Brooks Lopez!) so we'll try to keep our comment counts under 250 with new threads. Fasten your seat belts and enjoy the ride!

This just posted on ESPN by Chad Ford:

Updated: June 26 -- 3:31 p.m. ET

Two big deals have just gone down in the past few minutes that could change the face of the draft.

The Clippers and Sonics have agreed to swap picks as long as the Wolves take O.J. Mayo at No. 3. If Mayo isn't drafted at 3, the deal is off according to two sources close to the information.

With the No. 4 pick, expect the Clippers to take Eric Gordon of Indiana. They've coveted him as the type of dominant scorer that they've been looking for.

The Sonics will take Brook Lopez or Jerryd Bayless at No. 7. However it seems like Lopez will be the guy.

Nets trading Richard Jefferson to the Bucks for Yi Jianlian and Bobby Simmons
Jermaine O'Neil to Raptors for TJ Ford and Rasho + #17 pick

Chad Ford's final Mock Draft

(Sorry All, I closed the previous thread so we don't have competing threads.)
