    I’m going to omit the top 6 guys; Davis, Robinson MKG, Drummond, Beal and Barnes. Lillard too, because he's going in the top-10 regardless. I also took Henson out because it looks very likely Detroit will take him at #9.

    - There are a few guys generally projected to before us by most (Waiters, Rivers, Lamb and Leonard) but all of them could easily slip to us, and are not in a few mocks’ lotteries.
    - So ideally, which two players would you want if we kept the #14 and #16?

    Meyers Leonard | C | 7-1 252 | Illinois | 20
    Tyler Zeller | C/PF | 7-0 247 | North Carolina | 22
    Perry Jones III | PF/SF | 6-11 234 | Baylor | 20
    Royce White | SF/PF | 6-8 261 | Iowa St | 21
    Terrence Jones | SF/PF | 6-9 252 | Kentucky | 20
    Terrence Ross | SG/SF | 6-7 197 | Washington | 21
    Jeremy Lamb | SG | 6-5 179 | Connecticut | 20
    Austin Rivers | SG | 6-5 203 | Duke | 19
    Dion Waiters | SG | 6-4 221 | Syracuse | 20
    Kendall Marshall | PG | 6-4 198 | North Carolina | 20

    Some Others:
    Arnett Moultrie | PF | 6-11 233 | Mississippi St | 21
    Quincy Miller | SF | 6-10 219 | Baylor | 19
    Moe Harkless | SF | 6-8 207 | St. John's | 19
    Marquis Teague | PG | 6-2 180 | Kentucky | 19

    I took out Dion Waiters from the poll because I accidentally put 10 in the list. Most have him getting drafted before our pick (lottery promise)

    #14 - Arnett Moultrie
    #16 - Marquis Teague

    I think. It's still a pretty fluid thought process. :)

    Meyers will be gone before we pick.

    Wroten, Lamb(if his stock really falls like some expect). Then get a ~20 pick and draft Melo for C.

    If Jeremy Lamb is there, then yes. If not, Teague and Melo.

    Leonard, PJ3, Ross would be my preference. Zeller would be acceptable as well. I like White but probably at a few spots back.

    I'd like one player up-front and one guard, personally.

    And of the two, I think we need to get a risk (Jones III, White or Lamb) with high potential...and also a guy who's slightly more of a sure-thing (but not a safe/low-potential guy like the last 2 years), such as Marshall, Waiters or T.Jones.

    If we are assuming these players are all available when the Rockets pick Im taking Leonard and Ross.


    Tho I think you have to trade up to #8 to get Leonard and Ross could go anywhere between 10-21.
