2010 NBA Draft

  1. What NBA Draft night meant for five teams

    Jun 25, 2010, 9:32 AM EDT

    We just finished a season. The confetti is still stuck to Laker fans’ shoes. But one of the best things about the NBA is that immediately the slate is wiped clean and the season begins anew with the draft. And more so than any other sport, draft night can define your franchise. Even if you…

  2. Grizzlies admit they were wrong about 2009 draft, still completely miss the point

    Jun 24, 2010, 11:37 AM EDT

    The Grizzlies have learned! They admitted a mistake! An NBA front office actually admitted a draft mistake! Good times are on the way! We can learn! Or not. The Memphis Commercial Appeal’s Geoff Calkins has an article today leading with a fine quote from the man in charge of the Grizzlies, Michael Heisley. If you…

  3. NBA Draft: Thunder aiming for the Pacer's No.10 pick

    Jun 23, 2010, 9:44 PM EDT

    Is Sam Presti magic? Does he have mutant powers of persuasion? Does he know, in fact, how to make friends and influence people? Apparently freaking so, because hours after translating the 32nd overall pick into the 18th and a three point shooting champ, the Thunder are active again. This time, they’re looking to move the…

  4. NBA draft: Xavier Henry gets a green room invite

    Jun 22, 2010, 1:36 PM EDT

    It’s official: Xavier Henry is a big deal. It’s still a bit of an unknown whether Henry will fit better as a 2 or 3 in the NBA, but his talent is undeniable. We’re not necessarily looking at a John Wall-esque off-the-charts prospect or one with DeMarcus Cousins’ considerable collegiate résumé, but Xavier has the…

  5. NBA Draft: Kings backup plan may be Greg Monroe

    Jun 20, 2010, 3:32 PM EDT

    When the Kings traded Andres Nocioni and Spencer Hawes to the Sixers for Samuel Dalembert, it became pretty clear they were aiming for a big in Thursday’s draft. The question is, of course, which big? The Sacramento Bee reports that DeMarcus Cousins is the top selection, but that if Cousins is off the board, Greg…

  6. NBA draft: Even if the 76ers' decision is already made, they're continuing workouts

    Jun 19, 2010, 3:55 PM EDT

    The Sixers posted a pretty interesting graphic on their website to entics season ticket buyers, and the internet a’sploded with something we kind of already knew: the team with the No. 2 pick in the draft seems set to select (gasp) the seemingly clear-cut second best prospect in the bunch. This is all very shocking,…

  7. Sixers may have tipped their hand about drafting Evan Turner

    Jun 19, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Evan Turner is widely considered the No.2 overall prospect in Thursday’s draft. The Sixers have several needs, but Turner is such a dynamic talent, the national player of the year, that he outweighs other needs they may have. Their recent trade of Samuel Dalembert for Andres Nocioni and Spencer Hawes does leave open the possibility…

  8. NBA Draft: Likely second-rounder Greivis Vasquez invited to attend

    Jun 18, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

    It’s not always easy for a prospect to create legitimate buzz this close to the draft, but Maryland’s Greivis Vasquez seems to be doing just that. After weeks of draft speculation put Vasquez as a mid second-rounder, he could be climbing out of the first round entirely to nab one of the first round’s prized…

  9. NBA draft: Ankle injury ends Avery Bradley's workout plans

    Jun 14, 2010, 8:00 AM EDT

    According to Jonathan Givony of Draft Express, possible lottery pick Avery Bradley has suffered a “mild to medium soft left ankle sprain” that will effectively end his pre-draft workout tour. This isn’t good news for Bradley. His injury hardly appears to be serious, but group workouts are exactly the kind of setting that would showcase…

  10. The Wizards aren't even working out Evan Turner

    Jun 11, 2010, 10:59 AM EDT

    John Wall is a can’t-miss prospect. He’s going to be a star in the NBA for a long, long time, and he’s immensely talented. So much so that the only suspense between the draft lottery and the draft itself concerned whether or not the Wizards could possibly talk themselves out of taking Wall with the…

  11. NBA Draft, Meet Your Steal: Samardo Samuels is undersized like a fox

    Jun 1, 2010, 9:10 PM EDT

    Let’s play a game. Imaginea team with a late first round pick that can afford to take a gamble. It’s either blessed with a playoff ready roster with the luxury of long-term development, or a bottom feeder with multiple picks, having already scored its marquee prize. As the selection moves closer, the team starts to…

  12. NBA Draft: Yet more reasons to freak out about John Wall

    May 22, 2010, 2:05 PM EDT

    I’d probably come to your attention that John Wall is kind of a big deal. He’s been the anticipated No.1 overall selection since the start of the college basketball season, and has become one of the most hyped picks of the last decade. His upside is based not only on his ridiculous athleticism and talent,…

  13. After the NBA Lottery screwed them, where do the Nets go from here?

    May 20, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    So, that didn’t go so well for the Nyets. The franchise savior will be headed to Washington, or, if they lose their minds, Philadelphia. The odds of landing LeBron, Wade, Bosh have just shrunk to tiny proportions, and they’re looking at the third pick in a two-superstar-pick draft. That’s a pretty big fall on the…

  14. NBA Draft: Evan Turner could work with Andre Iguodala, not against him

    May 19, 2010, 11:55 AM EDT

    Now that the Sixers hold the No. 2 pick in the draft, they have all kinds of options. Maybe Ed Stefanski will cash in on the pick’s value now, trade it, and get back a proven commodity that can make an immediate impact while dumping Elton Brand’s salary. Maybe Stefanski sees Turner as a franchise…

  15. Sixers get No.2 pick in NBA Lottery, are changes afoot?

    May 18, 2010, 9:19 PM EDT

    The Philadelphia 76ers may not have won the John Wall sweepstakes, depending on what the Wizards do, but they still lucked out. They had a 6% chance at the No. 2 overall pick and stuck the landing. What’s interesting is that now the Sixers face a conundrum of their own if the Wizards select John…

  16. NBA Lottery: Let the debate begin, Wall or Turner for Wizards?

    May 18, 2010, 8:43 PM EDT

    This one won’t be a no-brainer. John Wall is a near consensus #1 overall player. His vision, athleticism, natural skill and length have drawn lofty phrases as strong as “best draft prospect since Carmelo Anthony.” And now the Wizards have the opportunity to select him with the first overall pick. Only problem? They already have…

  17. Washington Wizards win NBA Lottery

    May 18, 2010, 8:31 PM EDT

    From punchline to prominence. The Washington Wizards have gotten the break they needed to restart their franchise. The Wizards won the NBA lottery and will have the top pick in June’s draft. They will now face a world of options as to how to approach the future of their franchise. Gilbert Arenas is their starting…

  18. NBA draft lottery: Evan Turner is quite the consolation prize

    May 18, 2010, 4:37 PM EDT

    One very happy team is going to walk away with John Wall in their pocket tonight. All eyes will be on the franchise that drafts the fantastic Kentucky point guard, as Wall’s brilliance and style have always demanded that all eyes are on him. Another team, however, will be quietly snickering in the wings, as…

  19. Nets wisely waiting until after the lottery to sign their next head coach

    May 12, 2010, 12:53 PM EDT

    Though I’m sure all of the ’08-’09 Nets are eager to erase any and all semblances of the nightmare season that was, they’ll have to wait just a bit longer before the new coaching regime can officially begin. According to Al Iannazzone of NorthJersey.com, Rod Thorn hasn’t even spoken to the coaching candidates already with…
