Today Is Draft Day For The NBA
Posted by Nancy on June 24, 2010
All of the speculation and all of the hype will be put to rest tonight when the 2010 NBA draft finally takes place. The teams in the number one through number ten spot for the draft are: Washington, Philadelphia, New Jersey, Minnesota, Sacramento, Golden State, Detroit, L.A. Clippers, Utah, and Indiana. As for three of the top picks, most fans are expecting golden boy, John Wall to be grabbed immediately by the Wizards. Expectations are that Evan Turner will go to Philly, and possibly Derrick Favors to New Jersey.
Utah is in the number nine spot which is a pretty great place to be for a team who has finished in the playoffs as often as they have. They are looking at some potentially terrific perimeter players in Al-Farouq Aminu, Luke Babbitt, Xavier Henry and Gordon Hayward, but they may hold off and take a big man instead. If that happens, there are plenty to choose from this year. The Jazz would undoubtedly love to end up with power forward, Greg Monroe who has demonstrated just the kind of skills that would be a good fit with the Utah team. Another power forward, Ed Davis who is out of North Carolina would also be a boon for the Jazz. Whoever it ends up being, when the names get called out tonight, here is hoping that the Jazz add somebody to the roster who will give substantial help to the team.
