    Once again, I have never seen any of the likely picks play. but from what I have read I like Jarrett Jack more and more.

    I have a feeling the 24th pick will be traded. The Rox are looking for instant impact.

    first to post my guess. and that guess is we will draft WINSTON!

    6'6 230 athletic but is a really sweet catch and shoot player. has nice handles too. i can see him backing up tmac for 10 minutes a night.

    anyway, when we draft him, remember who said it first.

    I expect that a trade will be made on draft day and there will be 2 new Rox players. Either a rookie + veteran or 2 rookies (from 1st & 2nd rd)

    Trade up to the mid first round and get either Joey Graham or Ike Diogu. Or both if I had my way.

    The rockets will trade up and get Hakim Warrick. He'll bring the rockets more athleticism at the 4.

    Plus, any player that can t-bag someone while dunking is impresive.

    I want to go with Wayne Simien, but since there is rumor that the Rockets may move up in the draft, I'll pick Ike Diogu.

    Taft concerns me ... this article was written from a perspective of wanting to keep him in school, but it just doesn't sound inspiring.
