Post-Lottery Links



Taking a quick spin around the web on the day after:

UPDATE #2: Some really great stuff in this writer's roundtable on CNN/SI.

UPDATE: John Hollinger has some notes about potential post-lottery trade scenarios. One interesting bit is the suggestion that the Clippers will be desperate to give Zach Randolph away to clear room for Blake Griffin and would take a Marko Jaric/Darko Milicic deal. I still wouldn't do that from the Griz perspective because I wouldn't want Randolph anywhere near my team. Hollinger's other notes on the Grizzlies aren't as compelling because they seem to be based primarily on Chad Ford's highly questionable suggestion that Thabeet is the most likely pick at #2.

Chad Ford's mock has Hasheem Thabeet at #2, Chase Budinger at #27.

Kevin Arnovitz wants the Clippers to take Griffin.

Jonathan Givony has thoughts on the #2 pick.

Draft Express' mock has the Griz taking Ricky Rubio (#2), Tyler Hansbrough (#27), and Danny Green (#35). has it Rubio, Derrick Brown, Dionte Christmas

Zac from Three Shades of Blue has a sharp, funny post about the Grizzlies' endless point-guard dilemmas. To answer Zac's personal question thrown my way: I'm still sorting it all out, but barring a chance to move up for Griffin, I'm leaning toward the kind of scenario you settled on.

MemphisX at Three Shades throws out a mock with the Griz taking Rubio and Danny Green.

Ian Thomsen at CNN/SI has the Griz taking Rubio and Terrence Williams

Ball Don't Lie has Rubio going to Griz.
