2009 NBA Mock Draft VIII - June 24, 2009

Version VIII

First Round

1. LA Clippers - Blake Griffin -
2. Memphis - Hasheem Thabeet -
3. Oklahoma City - James Harden -
4. Sacramento - Ricky Rubio -
5. Minnesota - Jordan Hill - My crystal ball says a trade is coming.
6. Minnesota -
Stephen Curry - really.
7. Golden State -
Tyreke Evans -
8. New York -
Jrue Holiday -
9. Toronto - Demar DeRozan -
10. Milwaukee - Jonny Flynn -
11. New Jersey -
Terrence Williams - Based on workouts this pick will be Williams, Henderson, Flynn, Jennings, or Hansbrough.
12. Charlotte - Gerald Henderson - This pick will be either Henderson or Williams. In this mock Williams is off the board, so it must be Henderson but come draft night Williams may still be on the board putting the Bobcats in a conundrum.
13. Indiana -
DeJuan Blair - GM Larry Bird has hinted at DeJuan Blair, Tyler Hansbrough, Ty Lawson, and Eric Maynor.
14. Phoenix -
Brandon Jennings -
15. Detroit -
Earl Clark -
16. Chicago -
B.J. Mullens - Detriot and Chicago promised to give Mullens a serious look. Between fifteen and sixteen two of these four should be taken Clark, Mullens, Johnson, and Hansbrough (also slight possibility of Daye).
17. Philadelphia - Ty Lawson -

18. Minnesota (from Miami) -
James Johnson - Which ever player slips out of the lottery, the T-Wolves should look to grap, unless they have traded this pick away for a higher one.
19. Atlanta -
Austin Daye -
20. Utah - Tyler Hansbrough -

21. New Orleans -
Eric Maynor -
22. Dallas -
Chase Budinger -
23. Sacramento (from Houston) - Omri Casspi -
24. Portland -
Jeff Teague - The Trailblazers are trying to cut off Jerryd Bayless and Steve Blake. If successful, the team should be looking to take a point guard. Omri Casspi is another option here as well as a possible reach for Victor Claver if the Blazers become too worried that the Lakers may go with him.
25. Oklahoma City (from San Antonio) - Darren Collison -
26. Chicago (from Denver via Oklahoma City) -
Wayne Ellington -
27. Memphis (from Orlando) - Sam Young -
28. Minnesota (from Boston) - DaJuan Summers
29. LA Lakers - Nick Calathes - Calathes or Claver. Both will be playing in Europe next year meaning the team saves some cap space. Both have tremendous upside. Both have last names that start with the letter C.
30. Cleveland - Taj Gibson -
