    I say we package it along with Amir and/or Maxiel and move up. We need quality over quantity in my opinion.

    I don't think so. I think 13 is the latest he will go.

    You got
    Atlanta
    Boston
    Sacramento
    Portland

    all could use a PG. he'd have to stink in the tourney to not keep moving up.

    Boston has 2 young prospects at the point, Atlanta is loaded with PG's (Claxton, Johnson and another one whom I forgot), Portland has Jack and Sacramento Bibby. I think each one of the teams you named could use players at each position and not primarily a PG.

    Boston...well, they're going for the durant-oden sweepstakes. I just stuck them as a worst case scenario.

    Atlanta: it depends on indiana's freefall. They will be looking hard at Acie. Claxton was a bust. Johnson is a stop gap. Tyronne? if you could get the best PG in the draft at about 13...why would they let tyronne stop them. They have JJ, Josh, Marvin, and Shelden. They could either use a C or a PG but then its the same situation as us but C's around 13...you're looking at a probable role player.

    Sac & portland could prolly use a PF or SF respectively. But Sac is picking late.

    I agree about quality over quantity and packaging our assets. I would like to see Amir and Maxiel stay with the Pistons, though. I am not opposed to packaging any of the 3 draft picks, as well as Blalock, Acker, or Samb.

    If we are looking for a point guard, we shouldn't have to move up too far though.

    Pheonic gets ATL pick if it is in the Top 5 (maybe 6) and I think we all can agree PHX may not pick a PG.

    Now if the Magic's pick was #6 it could be interesting.

    I believe protected for 2007 below 6 and the Magic are now in the lottery.

    :hoops:

    I don't follow college ball at all, but isn't it a bit early for mock drafts since we don't even know what position everyone will draft?

    The draft positions can change several times a day, not to mention the fact that the lottery can change a lot of things as well.

    I believe that the lottery date is May 22, 2007!!!

    Why don't you ask the websites that post the stuff and get back to us with their response. Thanks.

    P.S. I believe the draft positions are determined before Billups can become a free agent so I guess you could also say that about that thread and even more so since it has been on this board a lot longer than this thread.

    Why don't you take a "I'm not going to take everything so personally" pill, re-read my post and get back to me with your response. Thanks.

    I wasn't criticizing this thread or you. I'm not even criticizing mock drafts, I really enjoy them. There have been NFL mock drafts going since the day after the superbowl, but at least they know each team's draft position. The draft positions could change 100 times between now and the end of the season. That's all I'm saying.

    P.S. There's nothing wrong with speculation and conjecture. That's one of the many great things about sports and especially sites like pf.com.

    Jammer, this is one of my favorites: NBADraft.net | Home

    It updates the draft positions daily as the standings change. It also updates player rankings frequently, as well as adds/removes players when college kids make announcements.

    And, if you think that is early, they also have a 2008 Mock Draft posted: NBADraft.net | Home. Only 467 days left until draft day....

    They have the Pistons picking Nick Young.

    This guy can play. Probably one of the best basketball players to come out of USC in years.

    Didn't anyone tell the Magic that they're not supposed to beat Miami in their house?
