CHU MOCK 2010 NBA DRAFT (Final)
First Round | Second Round
WASHINGTON WIZARDS
1
  John Wall PG 6-4/195 FR Kentucky
Analysis: Safe to say the the Wizards are content here and if Gilbert Arenas is back - physically and mentally - who knows what might happen?
PHILADELPHIA 76ERS
2
  Evan Turner G/F 6-7/215 JR Ohio State
Draft Analysis: Evan Turner and Andre Iguodala are similarish in style and the roster could use a shooter and possibly a springy big forward. Still, unless a trade comes out of the woodwork, expect Turner to be a Sixer.
NEW JERSEY NETS
3
  Derrick Favors PF 6-10/245 FR Georgia Tech
Analysis: Several mock drafts have flip-flopped Derrick Favors and Wesley Johnson, with the latters supposedly chosen then a big time post player signed off the free agent market. I've been a believer this is just for show and the Nets are locked into Favors. Point guard remains the biggest area of concern.
MINNESOTA TIMBERWOLVES
4
  Wesley Johnson SF 6-7/205 R-JR Syracuse
Analysis: This has been where Wesley Johnson will go for weeks now and if New Jersey does take him, the Wolves will grab Derrick Favors - who is the better prospect anyway. More interesting at this point is whether Al Jefferson gets dealt on Draft day.
SACRAMENTO KINGS
5
  DeMarcus Cousins C 6-11/290 FR Kentucky
Analysis: DeMarcus Cousins will not go lower than #5 and for the second year in a row, the King get a steal. No big man has more talent in the Draft and a frontcourt of Jason Thompson, Carl Landry, Samuel Dalembert and Cousins is impressive.
GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS
6
  Ekpe Udoh PF 6-10/235 R-JR Baylor
Analysis: We've been hearing for days the Warriors aren't sold on the high post, finesse game of Greg Monroe, but Ekpe Udoh is a bit of a surprise here. Ed Davis would seem to be the defender-shotblocker next on their list, but Udoh is a supreme interior defender and emerging scorer.
DETROIT PISTONS
7
  Greg Monroe PF 6-11/245 SO Georgetown
Analysis: Detroit lacks frontcourt talent and when it looked like Golden St. would nab Greg Monroe, Ed Davis appeared a nice fit. Now Joe Dumars has to think a bit and the more polished Monroe offers a better offensive option early with less defense and rebounding.
LOS ANGELES CLIPPERS
8
  Al-Farouq Aminu SF 6-8/215 SO Wake Forest
Analysis: For months I've had Al-Farouq Aminu to the Clippers, so why change? Unless Sacramento swaps with Detroit and grabs Aminu at #7, I think this is a great fit for both sides.
UTAH JAZZ (from New York via Phoenix)
9
  Ed Davis PF 6-10/225 SO North Carolina
Analysis: Figured Utah would pick a wing forward here, but if Ed Davis falls to #9, Utah gets their Carlos Boozer replacement and a much needed lengthy rim protector with huge upside down the road. Luke Babbitt and Gordon Hayward are top alternatives if the big forwards are gone.
INDIANA PACERS
10
  Cole Aldrich C 6-10/235 JR Kansas
Analysis: Indiana is still trying to land a young point guard, so this pick is a good be moved - possibly to Oklahoma City for Eric Maynor and the #18 and #21 picks. The Thunder have been working hard to get in the Lottery, so it's safe to say Sam Presti likes someone. Cole Aldrich is the best big left on the board and a perfect defensive fit for either the Pacers or Thunder.
NEW ORLEANS HORNETS
11
  Gordon Hayward SF 6-8/210 SO Butler
Analysis: New Orleans has to go big and couldn't hope for more than having the likes of Cole Aldrich still on the board, but Gordon Hayward gives CP3 a gifted running mate who some believe could develop into something special.
MEMPHIS GRIZZLIES
12
  Paul George G/F 6-8/215 SO Fresno St.
Analysis: If Rudy Gay is staying, as owner Michael Heisley says he is, drafting a wing here isn't a must. Point guard might be the spot GM Chris Wallace wants to upgrade, but that's a reach here unless Avery Bradley is considered. Paul George showed the ability to play the two and is a great fallback if Gay does bolt.
TORONTO RAPTORS
13
  Luke Babbitt SF 6-8/220 SO Nevada
Analysis: Toronto may have frontcourt issues if Chris Bosh doesn't re-sign - and if another big isn't acquired via sign and trade. A wing to replace the likely departing Hedo Turkoglu is a solid choice and Luke Babbitt has impressed with his offensive arsenal. The Raptors may also deal this choice as well.
HOUSTON ROCKETS
14
  Patrick Patterson PF 6-9/240 JR Kentucky
Analysis: Include Houston among those teams itching to move up. The roster is a healthy Yao Ming from being a title contender, but could always use another solid big man and Patrick Patterson offers a mature game on both ends and the ability to step outside and hit jumpers.
MILWAUKEE BUCKS (from Chicago)
15
  Larry Sanders PF 6-10/220 JR Virginia Commonwealth
Analysis: So much for the Bucks grabbing a wing here after the acquisitions of Corey Maggette and Chris Douglas-Roberts. Maybe John Hammond didn't give Larry Sanders a promise, but it sure looks like the roster is shaping up for a young, athletic big who can keep up with Brandon Jennings in transition.
MINNESOTA TIMBERWOLVES (from Charlotte via Denver)
16
  Xavier Henry SG 6-6/210 FR Kansas
Analysis: It looks like Memphis will pick here and send Minnesota the 25th and 28th picks. The Grizzlies could end their point guard interests with Eric Bledsoe, but until it's official, the Wolves own the pick and a sliding Xavier Henry isn't a need, but another upgrade
CHICAGO BULLS (from Milwaukee)
17
  Solomon Alabi C 7-1/235 R-SO Florida State
Analysis: Looks like this will now be a second of three Washington first rounders by virtue of taking Kirk Hinrich's contract. Washington could use a wing and frontcourt depth.
OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER (via Miami)
18
  Avery Bradley G 6-3/180 FR Texas
Analysis: It would appear Sam Presti wants to use this pick to move up, with Indiana the most likely trade partner. Regardless of who's picking, if Avery Bradley slips here it's a steal even if he doesn't develop into a full time point guard.
BOSTON CELTICS
19
  James Anderson SG 6-6/210 JR Oklahoma St.
Analysis: With an aging roster, Danny Ainge needs to find some young legs capable of playing right away - especially up front. The Celts wouldn't mind dealing this pick, but Minnesota, Memphis and Oklahoma City all have multiple picks in the same part of the Draft and can sell cheaper. James Anderson can't slide too much farther and is an option if Ray Allen doesn't return.
SAN ANTONIO SPURS
20
  Damion James F 6-7/225 SR Texas
Analysis: Word is Tiago Splitter may finally be ready to come over from Europe and that would leave the wing as the team's biggest need. Damion James, while a tweener, is athletic and ready to play from day one.
OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER
21
  Hassan Whiteside C 7-0/225 FR Marshall
Analysis: The Thunder are stuffed to the gills with talent, so their first rounders could be dealt. There are quetions about Hassan Whiteside's maturity and he will be a project, but the ceiling his high and if he develops Sam Presti is a genius again.
PORTLAND TRAILBLAZERS
22
  Kevin Seraphin PF 6-10/250 Int'l France
Analysis: Word out of Portland is that they want Elliot Williams, but probably not a #22. There are plenty of picks in the 20s for sale and at this point, the Trailblazers can draft an extremely talented big forward in Kevin Seraphin and stash him overseas for a year or two.
MINNESOTA TIMBERWOLVES (from Utah via Philadelphia)
23
  Daniel Orton PF/C 6-9/270 FR Kentucky
Analysis: It's hard to imagine David Kahn keeping all three (or four) first rounders and this is a spot where someone may overpay for a chance to grab a late first rounder. For now, it's the Wolves pick and a sliding Daniel Orton is the perfect high upside type who could pay big in a few years.
ATLANTA HAWKS
24
  Eric Bledsoe PG 6-1/190 FR Kentucky
Analysis: Atlanta's point guard situation remains a question mark and despite taking Jeff Teague last year, Eric Bledsoe is too good a talent to pass this far down the board.
MEMPHIS GRIZZLIES (from Denver)
25
  Craig Brackins F 6-9/230 JR Iowa St.
Analysis: Memphis or Minnesota or anybody else? Craig Brackins is a big time shooter with good size on the wing, but a little bit of a tweener.
OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER (from Phoenix)
26
  Elliot Williams SG 6-4/175 SO Memphis
Analysis: Another possible deal pick and Elliot Williams is a wanted man around here, so here's a guess as to where he lands.
NEW JERSEY NETS (from Dallas)
27
  Jordan Crawford SG 6-4/200 R-SO Xavier
Analysis: Assuming Derrick Favors goes #3, New Jersey may look to bolster the backcourt after dealing Chris Douglas-Roberts. Jordan Crawford is a bit of a tweener and tabbed with the uncoachable label, but can score and maybe someday run a team. Regardless, he's worth a shot late in Round 1.
MEMPHIS GRIZZLIES (from LA Lakers)
28
  Quincy Pondexter SF 6-6/215 SR Washington
Analysis: Memphis won't keep all three first rounders, but anyone would love to grab a player ready to insert in the rotation here and Quincy Pondexter is a solid all around player.
ORLANDO MAGIC
29
  Darington Hobson SG 6-6/205 JR New Mexico
Analysis: Orlando needs something to push them over the Eastern Conference hump, but likely won't find it here. Darington Hobson has NBA athleticism, size and talent, plus can play three positions. If he develops, Hobson could be one of the league's top glue guys.
WASHINGTON WIZARDS (from Cleveland)
30
  Devin Ebanks SF 6-8/215 SO West Virginia
Analysis: The first round begins and ends with Washington. At this point, a talent like Devin Ebanks is a potential steal if he develops and at worst should be a sound defender and rebounder.

Second Round
