    My guess is Walsh is going to use it in some kind of package with the #8 pick to trade up.

    all about 2010

    Certain teams, they may want to preserve cap space for the next year or two and they may need to add players," Kupchak said. "A good way to add talent at a fixed price is to have a lot of draft choices and then you can still maintain cap space a year from now."

    Dream draft:

    -- trade David Lee to OKC, get Rubio
    -- draft Jordan Hill with 8
    -- draft Danny Green with the 29th

    if Hill isn't there at #8, take Taj Gibson at #29.


    same kind of player as Hill, just less upside.

    It would be nice if the Knicks finally drafted someone who can play some D. That means no Hill or Rubio.
