    Perry Jones to Dallas via Cleveland?

    Hawks get a shooter in John Jenkins. Super-quick release, great shooter. Very good size for a SG. This might move Johnson to SF (which makes sense, as he's getting a little older and a step slower, but still has size), or Jenkins could come off the bench for instant offense.

    Jared Cunningham to Dallas.

    Doesn't shoot well, but plays solid defense. Meh.

    I've got three SG ahead of him.

    Jenkins has good size for an NBA SG? I don't think so. Slightly below average height and weak.

    Sorry, meant combo guard. He's graded out at 6'4 1/2".

    Gotcha! I'm not sure I'm buying him as a combo guard in the NBA, however.

    Memphis goes with Tony Wroten, whose shot is completely broken. He can pass, he's tall, he can guard okay. Great athlete. Poor decision making at the point and not a great teammate.

    Remarkably poor choice by the Grizzlies, IMO. They needed shooters and grabbed the worst shooter in the draft.

    Jeffrey Taylor would have been a phenomenal choice, IMO, especially if they're going to deal Rudy Gay, as has been rumored.

    Maybe they get rid of OJ Mayo?

    The Pacers have some splainin' to do. Jones III, Moultrie and Teague were still on the board and the Pacers passed on them. Why?

    Re: 2012 NBA Mock Draft

    Pacers pick Miles Plumlee, who averaged six points a game in the watered down ACC. He's another athletic marvel who can jump out of the gym, but is consistently underwhelming when the lights are on. Apparently, the retirement of Jeff Foster meant the Pacers needed another white guy to sit the bench. He can rebound, but, man, with so much talent on the board, Indy choked.

    I've got Moultrie WAY ahead of him. Perry Jones, too.

    At best, he's a career backup.

    Re: 2012 NBA Mock Draft

    The Heat can simply pick the best athlete here.

    That may be Taylor, who can shoot at SF.

    That may be Jones, who can go PF or SF.

    That may be Moultrie, who can go power.

    That may be PG Teague, who can fly.

    (Have I mentioned that I HATE David Stern? He's a butthead.)

    Moultrie is a good pick here. Strong, quick, long, and can pick and roll.

    Lamb and Teague would have likely helped themselves IMMENSELY by staying. This is the strongest draft in a LONG, LONG time. Lamb and Teague would have been solid first rounders next season just by process of elimination.

    Heat trading 27th pick to 76ers, according to Marc J. Spears. Miami will receive a future first round pick and the 45th selection tonight.

    That's the way it worked out, for sure.

    Though, to be fair, they may be able to glom on to a much better team being drafted lower.
