The Portland Trail Blazers would like to welcome:

Eric Gordon PG/Indiana

http://msnbcmedia3.msn.com/j/ap/5e1f029d-6111-42ab-b779-880bac6adcc5.widec.jpg

We think Eric could become a very good point guard, a la Gilbert Arenas. At this point, we'll be toying with him and Roy to see who fits the point and add a new young scorer to our team. This sets us up with a starting 5 all 24 and under.

The Golden State Warriors are proud to welcome

Danilo Gallinari SF/International

http://www.danilogallinari.it/image/displayFull/images/danilo_gallinari_01184807_301107.jpg

Gallinari is a very impressive NBA prospect and should be a solid NBA pro. Whether he has as much “upside” as a prospect like Nicolas Batum is debatable, but Gallinari is definitely more NBA-ready than Batum and has the potential to be an above average NBA player.

With the 15th pick in the 2008 NBA draft, The Phoenix Suns are proud to select

D.J. Augustin PG Texas

http://img167.imageshack.us/img167/4720/augustinin8.jpg
http://img99.imageshack.us/img99/3052/prodyc0.jpg

With this pick the Suns finally have someone who can keep the offense moving when Nash is off the court and he will eventually take over for him as the starting PG upon Nash's retirement.

The Washington Wizards select PF Darell Arthur

http://msnbcmedia2.msn.com/j/msnbc/Components/Photos/070219/070219_kansasKansasSt_vlg_9p.widec.jpg
The Wizards made this pick because they couldn't pass on such a fluid athlete like Arthur. Now with Arthur he will be in open competition vs. Blatche to be Jamison's eventual successor.

Blazers select:

Alexis Ajinca PF/France

http://www.draftexpress.com/gallery/AlexisAjinca/1184924226.jpg

Thought by many to be a first round pick and he has good size and a game that can be progressed. A good reserve for this year and a guy that we just want in the big man rotation.

Shane P. Hallam
04-19-2008, 08:00 PM
Even though he isn't entering the actual NBA draft...

Blazers select:

Earl Clark SF/Louisville

http://img360.imageshack.us/img360/2217/p1122405villeap1gw.jpg

Clark is a Top 15 pick. Next year, you could see him as a lottery pick. He can develop for a year, then compete to start at SF.
