    Right, but the article says they don't want contract obligations. Any cash included would go towards offseting Marco's salary. It makes more sense, fiscally speaking, for the Grizzlies to sell their 25th pick for cash and have it offset their lottery pick's salary.

      They would only be on the hook for one season and an expiring contract is marketable for some other trade down the line... Say the 2011 trade deadline?

          Out of all the picks listed in the poll above, I'd take Ed Davis, but I don't think he'd be there when we do select. He's got a good motor, he's a very good rebounder and his wingspan is nice. His offensive game is coming along nicely as well.
          Secondly I would be more tempted to choose a guy like Xavier Henry. For a guy who's 18, he's got a pretty decent NBA body. He just has to tighten up his handles and he'll be alright. Bledsoe would be a close third. I think a name like Daniel Orton should be up there as well. He's a project - but what big man on that list isn't?, but he could be a Kendrick Perkins type.

              Chad Ford's Latest

              He has the Raptors picking Bledsoe. Of course it is still very early. So watch for changes. I have found his mock draft especially his last one before the real draft as accurate if not more so than all the others.

              If the Raptors do draft Bledsoe than most likely Calderon or Jack are Raptors history by this coming Nov.

                With all those bigmen in this class and the Raptors potentially losing Bosh, I would be shocked if they passed on guys like Whiteside and Orton or one of the bigger names should one drop. I can't view that page at work, is it a player ranking or a real deal mock draft?

                          Read my latest post about expiring contracts. They're not going to worth nearly as much as people think...

                            What i think they should is try and trade up and get Demarcus Cousins. A big man that actually plays center, and build around a core of Demar, Sonny, Bargnani, and Demarcus. And during free agency sign and trade bosh for some young prospect and a good point (my first pick would be Nets if they get john wall we could trade for Harris and CDR since they dont play him enough)
                            I say trade Bosh for nets third pick(to select Cousins), Lee, T.W, and anything else to match it up.

                              The Nets aren't going to give up the third pick to sign Bosh. Not when they don't have to give anything up for him. And they don't have to match salaries.

                                More Damion James Observations #1

                                Maybe it's the beard, maybe it's the game, but it's hard to watch Thomas Gipson without picturing Damion James.

                                Gipson describes his game like this: "Very physical in the paint, hard-nosed, dominant."
                                Sounds about right.


                                http://cjonline.com/interact/blog/au.../thomas_gipson

                                19. PF Damion James, 6-7 225
                                James showed a lot of positive signs that he could adapt to the small forward position as a senior. His shot improved and he remains an aggressive and instinctive rebounder. He's not a playmaker, but he holds his own on offense due to an ability to score both inside and out.

                                Derrick Favors on his Spurs interview
                                Maybe this is a bit of a pipe dream, but who knows what Pop will conjure up come draft time. If it doesn’t work out, I would be call it a successful offseason to draft Damion James,
                                http://www.48minutesofhell.com/2010/...urs-interview/

                                ESPN draft analyst Chad Ford came out with his mock NBA Draft list today. He has former Texas forward Damion James going at No. 20 to the San Antonio Spurs and guard Avery Bradley going at No. 25 to the Memphis Grizzlies.

                                In Ford’s analysis of James, a 6-foot-8, 224-pound small forward, he said, “James might be one of the more underrated players in this year’s draft. Very few players have his combination of athleticism and motor. He doesn’t have a position on offense, but he’s a Spurs type of player all the way.”
                                Geez, if James is good enough for Pop at #20 rather than Bradley...........
