Clutch's 2001 Mockery of the Draft


Total: 11 points

2 Points
1. Washington Wizards: Kwame Brown
6-11, 240-pound 37 year old PF out of Glynn Academy High School

Congrats! You got it -- 2 points rewarded!
If MJ doesn't trade this pick, and they pick like he won't be coming back to play (sure, right), then it's become increasingly clear that the pick will be Kwame Brown. This is a year I wouldn't want to be making that #1 pick... any of 4-5 guys could be it.
0 Points
2. Los Angeles Clippers: Eddy Curry
6-11, 290-pound 36 year old C out of Thornwood High School

0 points rewarded
The Clippers need a power forward, and they need a center. No one is quite sure where Curry will fit best between those two -- the Clippers don't care.
2 Points
3. Memphis Grizzlies: Pau Gasol
7-1, 215-pound 38 year old SF out of F.C. Barcelona

Congrats! You got it -- 2 points rewarded!
I never thought Gasol would go this high, but all indications -- whether this pick is Atlanta's or Vancouver's -- is that Gasol will go here.
0 Points
4. Chicago Bulls: Eddie Griffin
6-9, 210-pound 36 year old SF/PF out of Seton Hall

0 points rewarded
If Gasol goes three, then the Bulls get a steal with Eddie Griffin on the board. He can slip in right alongside Elton Brand and be an immediate factor.
0 Points
5. Golden State Warriors: Tyson Chandler
7-1, 225-pound 36 year old C out of Dominguez High School

0 points rewarded
Chandler is the best left of the high school big men, and the Warriors don't pass him up here.
0 Points
6. Memphis Grizzlies: Jason Richardson
6-6, 222-pound 38 year old SG out of Michigan State

0 points rewarded
Toronto has Vince Carter. Vancouver wants the Second Coming. They need something pretty badly.
0 Points
7. Brooklyn Nets: Rodney White
6-9, 238-pound 38 year old PF out of Charlotte

0 points rewarded
I think Keith Van Horn is about as good as gone if they can find a taker for that contract, and Rodney White is a nice replacement possibility.
0 Points
8. Cleveland Cavaliers: Shane Battier
6-8, 220-pound 40 year old SF out of Duke

0 points rewarded
Battier slides all the way to #8 where the Cavs could use his solid game and winning attitude.
0 Points
9. Detroit Pistons: Sagana Diop
7-0, 305-pound 36 year old C out of Oak Hill Academy High School

0 points rewarded
Pistons badly need a center. If they're not sold on Diop, they could trade down where they could get a center like Woods, Haywood or Hunter in the 10-20 range.
0 Points
10. Boston Celtics: Troy Murphy
6-11, 245-pound 38 year old PF out of Notre Dame

0 points rewarded
Do the Celtics really want Troy Murphy this badly? And if so, why?
2 Points
11. Boston Celtics: Kedrick Brown
6-7, 219-pound 38 year old SF out of Okaloosa-Walton Community College

Congrats! You got it -- 2 points rewarded!
Rumor is the Celts have a win-wink with Kedrick, which isn't the brightest thing to let out. Could be a deal with Portland here. But if Joe Johnson is still on the board though?
5 Points
12. Oklahoma City Thunder: Vladimir Radmanovic
6-10, 225-pound 38 year old SF out of Crvena Zvezda of Yugoslavia league

Congrats! You got it -- 5 points rewarded!
The Sonics would love a center, without a doubt, but Radmanovic had an "unreal" workout in Houston according to some close to the Rockets. Seattle doesn't need a pure three like Joe Johnson, so he falls another notch.
0 Points
13. Houston Rockets: Joe Johnson
6-8, 220-pound 37 year old SG out of Arkansas

0 points rewarded
Just falls in to their lap. Barring a trade to move up, the Rockets get a small forward they feel can "start right now".
