    Who will the Rockets pick?

    ESPN has us selecting Kenneth Faried, just another undersized big man. I say we should try to trade up and try to get Jimmer Fredette or Jordan Hamilton.

    In a dream situation we trade up to get Kanter.

    Don't we have the 12th or 13th pick because of the NY swap?

    We would have to include a lot of players to get that high of a pick, I would prefer getting Fredette, but no way the Utah j*zz are going to let another raw white boy go

    Yeah, I'm hoping he drops to like 10 for some reason or the other (although unlikely) and the Rockets can sneak up and get him.

    But no to Jimmer or Kemba. Rockets have Lowry,Lee, and Martin. I'd even rather reach on a big then get those two, because if Rick does come back he's not even going to play them.

    Jimmer and Kemba would be a significant upgrade at those positions. But hopefully we can get a big man through free agency. (NeNe)

    Morehead State's team is named the Eagles. Not a feline. No Faried for us.

    Brandon Knight or Terrence Jones likely.

    We are either packaging the picks and a player to move up or to aquire a close to star level guy or drafting a euro to stash for a year or two.

    Tristan Thompson please. Dude has the length we need, plays hard and can easily bulk up. Good fifteen foot jumper as well.

    Lol @ drafting Jimmer. He's gonna be terrible. No way Morey drafts him.

    Kemba reminds me of Aaron Broosk with a better head, leadership.

    I set the dvr to record the Nike Hoop Summit to see this guy in action. Of course there is a lot of other players there I want to see before they hit college campuses too.

    He seems like a good blocker, but can he do anything else? I'm looking forward to the college and international chat between now and the draft.

    way too early. lets wait for the draft combine, and independent work outs, to get a clearer picture of the draft board.

    if i had to guess, the 14th pick will be used on a player from a winning program, most likely an upperclassmen who is ready to contribute right away. the magic's pick will probably be traded, either for a future pick or with miller to get out of his contract. if no trades come up, euro player to stash overseas.

    We're already horrible on D and we want to add Jimmer. He's going to get murdered in the NBA because he has to play D against SG or PG. Too short to check SG and too slow to check PG.

    NO WAY TO JIMMER... We already have Chase

    Vesely should be the target.

    I'll pass on Jimmer and Kimba ....


    I think they have to move up and take one of the legit bigs who are all projected to go in the top 10 or so at this time , Jan Vesely , Donatas Motiejunas , Enes Kanter or Jonas Valanciunas. In no particular order.

    Who really cares? By the 14th pick, there isn't going to be anyone left that's decent.
