    It is never too early to talk nba draft.

    anyways, here is the most recent mock from nbadraft.net

    http://www.nbadraft.net/index.asp?content=mock2006

    I like the pistons pick in their first second rounder, but sean dockery after that is a horrible selection.

    Hell yeah, Dee Brown!!!

    But I find it hard to believe he'll fall that low. I think he's a late first round pick, if not someone will scoop him up very early in the 2nd round...

    My vote goes for Taquan Dean. Slated to go to Cleveland at #47.

    This guy could develop (heh heh) into the backup for Chauncey we have been looking for.

    He is a very good player, although his team has really tanked it this year. (not good for a senior)

    yeah dee would be one hell of a spark off the bench. We need that after lindsey leaves. Except Dee is a good on the ball defender and an above average scorer.

    I can't think Brown will be around, but he's absolutely a winner. Otherwise I'd devote the second-rounder to a less heralded type who might be our designated "Wade Stopper." Maybe a guy like Corey Belser or another aggressive, physical swing defender.

    "This is going to be a draft that is pretty weak compared to previous drafts," said Dave Telep, director of basketball recruiting for Scouts.com.
    Were it not for the new restriction on high school players, it might have been a very strong draft -- one that likely would have been anchored by center Greg Oden of Lawrence North High School in Indianapolis.
    "I think six to eight high school players would have been chosen in the lottery," Telep said. "This draft would have been much stronger if the new agreement had not been in place."
    With Oden headed to Ohio State instead of the NBA, the draft lacks a consensus top pick. But one scout argues it possesses solid depth.
    "There's not a definitive No. 1," said Ryan Blake, a NBA scout for Marty Blake and Associates. "But there's going to be opportunities to draft impact players all the way through the second round."

    I am looking at a couple guys right now. I personally dont think Dee would be available, although he would be great.

    linwood mentioned taquan dean. I would love to get him. Another guy is Craig Smith from BC. I seen this guy play a couple times and he is flat out impressive. A great NBA ready body with a strong defensive presence. He has good post moves for a big guy. Fights hard for offensive rebounds. Relentless on the boards.

    "With his power he is almost unstoppable in one-on-one situations."

    I've seen a lot of Smith here in New England. Somebody who wants a ready-to-go pro will take him in the late lottery, especially if BC makes a nice tourney run.

    #3 is a 7 foot tall center named Andrea. Should be pretty tough. Although, if you could find a 6'11" power forward named Jennifer...

    Ali Traore... I really hope we try to move up and snag this guy in the middle of the 2nd round. He's gonna be a big time sleeper in this draft. 6-9 to 6-10 240lb PF/C with an array of post moves and a great hook-shot. Leave him overseas for a year or 2 to develop further, and bring him over when he's needed.

    I thought we had two second round picks this year??
    What happened? According to nbadraft.net we only have one.

    The second pick was for Ronald Dupree (from the Timberwolves). That pick is slated to come to us sometime between 2006~2008. Why? I dunno.

    Just to stir the pot, here's a Ty Thomas interview from Draftexpress.com that really makes the guy look like a jerk. Too bad the interview wasn't with Draftexpress's #1 guy, Jonathan Givony, because he would have told Thomas off royally instead of wimping out.

    Check out this article about Fesenko, the Ukrainian center Detroit was allegedly trying to hide so they could get him with the 60th pick. He worked out with the Bucks and showed a lot of Memo and Darko style goofiness, though I liked how he won the 2-on-2 game.

    Agreed. If we get this guy off the bench that would be great. As we can see he's VERY coachable.

    On a serious note, if I'm Milwaukee I downgrade the other three guys in the workout because they weren't quick enough mentally or competitively to chase after Fesenko when he inbounded to himself. It's not like that play has never been used before.
