    I believe we currently have the #5 and 17 picks ( lets assumes that where we pick)

    Embiid

    Parker

    Wiggins

    Randle

     

    All go in some order top 4.

     

    who do YOU pick at #5 and then hope is there at #17?

     

    no packaging to move up, draft at those spots.

     

     are a couple links of rankings of players, if needed.

    draft express is the most recent update.

     

    I'll start it off with

    5. D. Exum

     

    17. K. Anderson

    I think Cauley-Stein, Hood, Gordon and McDermott are all gone by 17...any fo those would be my pick first, if there.

    It depends on who's picking ahead of us.

    If ORL is picking ahead of us, they will take Exum or Smart.  They have Vucevic, Afflalo and Olapido.

    They need a PG........

    I like Vonleh.

    At 17,  I like Nurcic or Capela.    If they are gone, I like Stauskus

    Vonleh, Smart, Exum are all in play for #5. Just depends on what Stevens is looking for. 

    Selden at #17 and laugh all the way to the bank. He's a maniac.

    If any of Exum, Embiid, Wiggins or Parker are on the board at 5 you take them, and that helps to dictate where you go at 17. Ideally A center is available...but likely you'd go SF if you took Exum, or guard if not.

    Smart at #5.  17 I have no clue.  I haven't followed MBB that closely this season.  Take a center with that pick.

    Vonleh, and then seldon...seldon a nice mass native...if not, they trade there first pick in a huge  blockbuster for a proven player. Then get Mcdermott (only if a trade happens)

    Man, 5 would be a nightmare scenario. I guess you are forced to take smart . I dont see how he is an upgrade over ab. He is not as good of a defender or shooter than ab. 2 areas we definetely dont need to get worse at. If you take exum, whats that mean for rondo? Trade? Both would be either downgrades or sideway moves at best in the future. Those guys do nothing for me.  I just hate tweeners and Da sems to love them.

    I like vonleh, good size/skill, I ? his motor tho. And after watching the michigan game yesterday where he was virtually non existant, I still do.

    I like gordon, cuz you know he is going to be a plus defender/rebounder at the nba level (he is a 3 imo) hes only a freshman, Super athlete, high motor, and is a hard worker who will put in the work to improve. I know he is an awful ft shooter and has a below avg jumper.  But I think he will put in the work to improve enough in those areas.

    Judging by a lot of the mocks Cualey-Stein should still be there at 17 so id take him, becuz we are so desperate for size ill take anyone who can be a rim protector. He is a nonfactor on offense and he is just an avg rebounder. 

    I know thats 3 guys, so ill go with Vonleh and Cauley-Stein. Only becuz shooting is one of the cs biggest weakness and adding gordon would only make that worse, on the other hand Vonleh already has a solid jumper.

    Vonleh is playing hurt and was questionable to paly at all.

     

    Hey if he and Embiid don't come out this year then wouldn't that break a lot of teams hearts?  Sealed

      HoopHall Classic Scouting Reports: Elite 2013 Prospects
    January 24, 2013
    Wayne Selden, 6'5, SF, Tilton, 2013 
    Committed to: Kansas

    Recruiting Rankings: ESPN: 16, Rivals: 26, Scout: 14

    Strengths: 
    -Physically developed prospect. Great frame
    -Long arms
    -Can create his own shot driving left or right
    -Finishes powerfully through contact
    -Capable of making shots with feet set
    -Can create separation nicely on mid-range jumper
    -Plays with solid effort. Tried to take a charge. Dove in crowd for loose balls
    -Improved passer and teammate. 

    Weaknesses: 
    -Looks a little more athletic than he actually is. First step is good but not great
    -Struggles to fully beat opponents off the dribble
    -Likes to get his shoulder into the defender and power his way to lane. May not work as effectively at college level
    -Doesn't show great lift elevating around the basket in the half-court unless he has a head of steam
    -Must continue to improve the consistency of his jump shot
    -Awareness defensively is average, particularly off the ball.

    Outlook: Declassified this year to return to his original class of 2013. A power wing with tremendous strength and solid scoring instincts. Interesting prospect if he continues to develop his skill-level.

      2011 National Prep Showcase: Elite 2013/2014 Prospects
    November 29, 2011
    Joe Treutlein

    One of the most highly touted prospects in attendance this year,  Wayne Selden(#10 ESPN, #9 Scout, #12 Rivals) has no problem fitting in among players two and three years older than he is, having comparable physical maturity to everyone else on the court even at his young age. 

    In the one game Selden played this weekend, he looks to be largely the same player and prospect we saw just one year ago, though he played more of a deferential role this time around on his very talented squad. Selden wasn't able to get his three-point shooting going here, having few attempts to do so, but looked good with his form and did a solid job spacing the floor and playing within his team's offense.

    Selden did show a little more with some opportunistic drives to the rim both in the half-court and transition, displaying nice speed and bounce to get by and above defenders around the basket. He struggled finishing when dealing with weak-side help, however, and still is relatively unpolished in this area of his game, usually relying on his strength to bail him out.

    Selden clearly didn't have one of his best games from what we saw, but still managed to make solid contributions to his team's blowout victory by spacing the floor, making solid flow-of-the-offense passes, and committing himself to defense and getting out in transition. 

    Still an incredibly young player, it's tough to make any confident projections about Selden at this stage, especially given the role he plays on his immensely talented team, but he's definitely someone we'll be watching closely for the next few years.

      2010 National Prep Showcase: Best of the Rest
    November 28, 2010
    Jonathan Givony

    One of the youngest players in attendance at the National Prep Showcase, you would have never guessed that  Wayne Selden is just a freshman in high school based on the way he carried himself at this event. Standing around 6-3, with a nice frame, good length and solid athleticism, Selden looked like he fit in comfortably from a physical standpoint with players who were as much as four years older than him. 

    Selden's biggest contribution in his lone outing in New Haven had to revolve around his perimeter shooting ability, knocking down an impressive six 3-pointers in the lone game we saw. He has somewhat of a slow and flat-footed release, but was deadly with his feet set, knocking down shots from well beyond the arc at times, and doing so confidently at that. 

    Selden also showed some shot-creating ability, driving the ball both left and right with a nice first step and even finishing around the rim emphatically when given the opportunity to do so. He appears to have solid court vision as well, making some very heady, creative passes to teammates that demonstrated a pretty advanced feel for a game. 

    Selden certainly isn't a bashful freshman, he talks quite a bit with his teammates, directing traffic confidently and showing far more maturity than you would expect from your average freshman. His lack of experience showed on a couple of occasions in the form of some bad decisions, but all in all it was tough not to be impressed with he handled himself on the court. 

    While it's certainly way too early to be drawing any long-term conclusions about a player this young, Selden looks like a guy to keep an eye on for the future based on his performance at this tournament, particularly if he continues to grow and develop his skill-set.
