Nets fan here...I saw a mock today where Sean May dropped to them. I'd love to see that unfold. I was at the Final Four this past spring and watching him carry the Tar Heels through those two games was incredible. If he really does drop into the teens, he's gonna make some team REAL happy.
im a nets fan and i want them to draft sean banks. he went to my HS, now he is at memphis, but was suspened for the season for who knows. he was crazy in HS one of the best in the nation, and was one of the best freshmen 2 years ago in the NCAA. hes suspected to go in the late 2nd round because of his disruptive behavior. and will go to the KNICKS which i hope the NETS. this kid is mad crazy at dunking, my brother saw him play in HS and i saw tapes of him.
check out sean banks at google.com or mybe its spelled shaun
If he falls the Nets will be taking Villanueva from UConn. I think they would rather get someone who maybe has a bigger body, but Uconn players work out realtively well, he's familiar with the NJ area, and most importantly should fit in with the team's offense with his passing skills plus he has huge upside. If he is not around at 15 Diogu or a leap on Chris Taft will probably be the choice. I really dont think they go for another position unless they take a flier on one of these foreign centers or just decide to get a backup guard who can shoot maybe like a McCants or trying to trade down for Matt Walsh.
Knowing the Knicks they will opt for Martell Webster or Hakim Warrick at the 8 slot. They could go Channing Frye, which is a better choice, but maybe not for the team Isiah is trying to build. With their second first rounder I think they will take an overseas guy and rush him over. Maybe the 7'3" kid or the guy from France.
Warrick would not be a good fit for the Nets... he can't shoot and he can't guard 4's. If the Nets are able to address their PF hole in free agency... then Warrick would be a nice energy guy off of the bench.
However, the draft occurs before free agency, so the Nets cannot afford a luxury like Warrick. Gotta fill needs.
For the Knicks, it looks like Frye or Bynum. I could see Isiah taking Gerald Green if Frye was off the board and Green was available, but he won't be.
I know a lot of people are lukewarm on Frye, and others think he will be a huge bust. But I actually like what I have seen from him. He reminds me of Marcus Camby with an offensive game.
For the Nets, I see May, Villuanueva, or Warrick. It seems as if Warrick is their failsafe. I know he drove Calhoon crazy at UConn, but I think Villuanueva will be better in the pros than he was in college. He'd be a very good fit for the Nets.
