Unless there is a plan in place to get one through a trade, so would i.

Delfino/AP won't cut it.

Difficult thing is though, we may already have 3 SG's, w/Kapono/Delfino/AP?? (1or2 of them can't be here for us to draft a SG)

Draft the best player available.
Don't draft for position.

This draft though is very light on bigs. IMO we're picking a SG/Combo or SF. It just depends on who's available at our position, especially if we drop out of the top 10.

Derozan is gonna move up in the draft into top 5. So unless we get 3rd or trade for him that aint gonna happen.

Harden is gonna drop down out of top 5 into the 6 to 8 range(might get him)

Williams stoch is gonna rise and bring him into the top 10 as well.

Harden is not going to drop much

Watching Harden

On the court, three things really stand out about Harden in the workout I saw.

First, he seems to have lost 10 to 15 pounds since we saw him last in the NCAA tournament. His face is thinner, his abs more chiseled. The improved physique and conditioning have given him an added quickness and explosiveness that you didn't always see at Arizona State.

"He reminds me a little of Brandon Roy," another NBA executive said. "When you watched him in college, he didn't look like an elite athlete because he was using his knowledge of the game, not his athleticism, to get by people. Then he gets to the combine and does really well in all of the athletic testing and everyone was wowed.

"Harden's like that. He's got sneaky athleticism."

He also has two other physical advantages that should help in the pros. While he's at the average height for 2-guards in the league (6-foot-5 in shoes, according to his trainer) he has a 6-foot-11 wingspan that allows him to wreak havoc in the lane and a thick base that gives him the ability to post up smaller, weaker guards in the paint.

Second, Harden is showing a marked improvement in his 3-point shooting. While Harden would have been categorized as a good shooter already, he wasn't a dead-eye, either -- especially late in the season. You can see that he's been working on increasing his range and accuracy, and in the workout I saw, he was hitting just about everything he threw up there.

His form looks great and his release is quick. Over time he's going to need to continue to develop that skill. Since he doesn't have a super quick first step, he's going to need defenders to play him close on the perimeter to use his creativity to get to the rim.



Finally, Harden seems to be playing with a chip on his shoulder. After absolutely dominating the first half of his sophomore season, his play began to fall off in Pac-10 play. Teams were double- and triple-teaming him and at times he grew passive and would mentally fall out of games.



Harden took those criticisms to heart. "I know that when I go to the NBA, guys will be coming for you. That's why I'm working so hard right now. It gives you motivation to get better."

While there are a few teams that still are asking questions about Harden as a top-five pick, most of the executives I spoke with are convinced he's the real deal.

we need to draft an SG/SF type player, not an SG/PG type, basically we need to draft us an anthony parker that's in his 20s and with a more slashing approach
