Here we go...

I'm not buying into the Derrick Rose hype. I think he can be a solid player but not an all-star player. He is no where on the level of Chris Paul or Derron Williams when they entered the league. I could be wrong about this one, but I'm thinking a minor bust here...

If Beasley can stay out of trouble, he is/was/will be better than any other player in this draft on the court. Good luck keeping him straight Riley...

Mayo to Memphis. They really don't want to win. Unless O.J. can learn to pass, he isn't going to work as a point guard...

D.J. Augustin to Charlotte is somewhat of a surprise to me. I'm not sure what the plan for Felton is now, but regardless, I think D.J. will be one of the best players to come out of this draft. For some reason (don't ask me to explain because I can't) I believe he will be better than Derrick Rose...

After giving away Jermaine O'Neil, the Pacers showed they aren't totally stupid. They got Brandon Rush and Jarrett Jack in their trade. I think they are the winner of their trade with Portland...

I'm excited for Marreese Speights going to the 76ers. He is a player who can really help this team right away...

Roy Hibbert landed in Indiana as well? That looks like a good move (I have yet to hear about this one yet)...

That's all I got...

I think Rose is a hell of a pick up. You're right he is not Williams or Paul when they came into the league but he is also at least 2 years younger than both of them when they came into the league. I can see him be a hybrid between Williams and Paul. Meaning he will have the size and the floor leadership of Williams, but the scoring ability of Paul. In the grad scheme of it all he will fall just a ahead of Williams and short of Paul.

Kevin Love will not mature into what the TWolves want him to be and that's a shame. They already have a big tweener bigman.
