    I picked other; I think Luwawu cracks top 10. With so many PF/Cs clustered around the 8-12 range, I think there's the possibility for a wing or guard outside that range to move up a lot if a team decides to draft for need.

      Sabonis. A lot of lottery teams really like him a lot.

        Yeah, Sabonis is a safe enough pick I can see a team reaching on him for an immediate contributor.

          I think if anyone moves up it's Sabonis or Poeltl.(voted Poeltl)

          It'll be because someone's reaching for a big.

            I'll guess it's Poeltltltltl. Some team won't see anyone they really like because their targets will get taken, and then they will think "shit. so how about we pair Anthony Davis with a healthy young 7ft center?"

            It's interesting that you put Malachi on the list. I wouldn't have thought of him, but it reminds me of how Dion Waiters got drafted way higher than he was projected. This is another guy from Syracuse, another hero ball player, with intriguing physical gifts, and one of few players in this draft who can create his own shot. Plus great tournament performance. This is a type of player that some teams might hate, but maybe some team will just fall in love.

              I am with you... for whatever reason other than Carmelo.. Syracuse guys tend to not meet expectations once they leave the Carrier Dome and Jimmy Boheim when they hit the NBA. I put Richardson in there solely because there is a chance.. a small one.. that the Kings of Comedy the Excremento Kings take him to run the point when Rondo signs July 1 with someone other than the Kings..

              A quick off the top of my head list of Syracuse Hindenberg draft choices

              Wesley Johnson
              Derrick Coleman
              Johnny Flynn
              Not So Fab Melo
              Pearl Washington
              Billy Owens

              And Jury still out on

                    I can see the Pelicans take Poeltl at 6 and he'd make a good pairing with Anthony Davis. They just need to get rid of Asik since he's horrible and overpaid.

                      I could see someone reaching for Skal. I could also see a team reaching for Sabonis if there was a prearranged trade for him by another team.

                      Although I can easily see a specific team (Pelicans) reaching down a tier for Poeltl if they're trying hard to get rid of Asik or Ellenson to replace Anderson. Also I could see the Kings reaching on literally everyone you could name.

                        Pels need outside shooting and a SG. Murray or Hield are guys they could really use. Gordon and Anderson are FA's.

                            I already did a mock and feel like I shouldn't sway from it.. but I could see Ellenson climbing a bit. Stretch 4's are going to be hot commodities after seeing GSW and Cleveland go at it. I can see a team like NOLA going after him to replace Ryan Anderson who'll be leaving in free agency.

                              Two guys who could get the call to move up would be Sabonis and Poeltl. I think the recent memory of another Michigan State PF (Adrieane Payne) has people leery on Davis.

                              They are different guys for sure..but Payne is a recent pick and so far has yet to make a mark.
