is the 2nd round pick determined by record or lottery?


record

I think tied teams flip flop the 1st round results. So since we picked ahead of Washington in the 1st, they pick ahead us in the 2nd. So we have the 5th pick (35th overall) in the 2nd.

Top 10 NBA draft prospects from Doug Gotleib

1. John Wall, Kentucky



The real deal. Incredibly fast with the ball and agile in transition. As difficult to keep out of the paint as Rajon Rondo, yet bigger and a better shooter. Only his defense and shooting behind the pick-and-roll are suspect. Best of all, Wall is a winner who isn't afraid to have the ball in his hands in key situations.


2. Derrick Favors, Georgia Tech



Long, freak athlete who played with below-average guards on an erratic team. Destroyed DeMarcus Cousins in high school and started to elevate his game late in the college season. Has every tool needed to be a star in the pros, just needs reps and polish.




3. Greg Monroe, Georgetown



Has a Chris Bosh feel to his game. He's bright, well-rounded and, though he's not a superstar, he's solid in most every aspect of his game despite playing just two years of college. Has been surrounded by average talent and his passing skills will be more pronounced with better players around him.



4. Evan Turner, Ohio State



Not a great athlete and not a shooter with range, but his basketball IQ and ability to create for himself and others make him a valuable asset.



5. Wesley Johnson, Syracuse


Very unselfish and a quality shooter. Johnson doesn't go by people, doesn't really do a great job of posting up and holding position, but he is very long, can play two positions at both ends and recovers from mistakes with his with very good speed.



6. Ekpe Udoh, Baylor



Udoh has a quick jumper with supreme timing and is an exceptionally quick learner and hard worker. He made himself an offensive player during his transfer year at Baylor, yet never lost the slightest bit of timing or intangibles defensively. While his build is fairly slight, he is strong, runs well in transition and has become a decent face-up jump shooter.



7. Al-Farouq Aminu, Wake Forest



Super skilled wing who will be a better pro than he was a college player. Not nasty enough to be a star, but bright, easy to like and still scratching the surface on his overall game. Aminu can guard two or three positions and eventually will play two positions on offense. His perimeter jumper needs work -- he made just 23 percent of his jump shots this year -- but his form is not "broken," it is just inconsistent.



8. Luke Babbitt, Nevada



Think Chris Mullin with a smaller Toni Kukoc-type of feel, and Babbitt will impress you. His array of step-backs, "Euro-steps" and range are different from anyone else in the draft. Babbitt is also a willing passer with a tremendous basketball IQ. Babbitt is the "favorite player" of at least five college recruiters I have spoken to and three scouts said the same thing.



9. Gordon Hayward, Butler



Handles like a 2, rebounds and defends like a 4 on the glass. Hayward is probably a year away in terms of strength and consistency in his shooting, but his Mike Miller-meets-Mike Dunleavy style makes him impressive, as does his ability to win. If you want a winner with upside, you want Hayward.



10. DeMarcus Cousins, Kentucky



A monster down low when he "plays," but he will float and shoot jumpers and will pout. There are some red flags concerning Cousins among several teams. He's a phenomenal specimen and Calipari says he simply needed to mature, but the likelihood that he can be ruled with an iron fist in the pros as he was in college is nonexistent. Still, he showed, like Tyreke Evans under Cal, major personal and professional growth at Kentucky.

This reaffirms my belief that the team should trade the pick. Besides Wall, who doesn't sound a sure thing to be more than a possible allstar caliber player, the rest of the players seem to be no more than role players.

Let the hype of getting new young players get the team proven talent in a trade

I didnt click on the link or anything but I could never take ANYTHING Larry Riley says seriously. That guy is a clown. Its embarrassing that he is seriously considered a GM. Cant wait until he is gone.

Gordon Hayward is better than you're giving him credit for. His handle and passing ability is far better than miller or dunleavy. Vicious crossover for a 6'9 player. he will be better in the pros then college

I asked before and got some decent info, but if anyone has anything else to add about Derrick Favors I'd like to hear it.

It sounds like we could end up drafting him. He's got the the size and the scouts seem to rave about his athleticism, but I've only seen him play briefly and he didn't do much. Any positives, or negatives, on Favors?
