Post-Lottery Analysis: the Implications
by: Jonathan Givony - President
May 24, 2006
With the order of one of the most wide open drafts in recent memory now being set in stone, things will truly start warming up in terms of workouts, jockeying for position, and smokescreens. With the help of our contacts around the league, DraftExpress takes an early look at the top ten teams drafting in the lottery to analyze whom might be looking at who.

Our pick for each individual team is highlighted in bold.

#1- Toronto Raptors

Will Consider: LaMarcus Aldridge, Andrea Bargnani, Adam Morrison, Tyrus Thomas, Rudy Gay.

Bryan Colangelo brought a stroke of lightning with him from Phoenix to help with the rebuilding process by landing the #1 overall pick. The Raptors have needs at all positions except power forward and could go in any direction, including trading the pick. No guard appears to have enough value at #1 at the moment, and with how difficult it will be to lure a franchise caliber big man in free agency, the Raptors might “almost have to draft LaMarcus Aldridge” in the words of one league source we spoke with following the lottery.

Aldridge has the type of height, length outstanding frame and back to the basket low post moves needed to be a modern center in today’s NBA, which makes him the logical favorite to end up #1.

With neither Chris Bosh nor Charlie Villanueva considered great defenders or rebounders, it makes little sense for this to be the year that a European player—Andrea Bargnani--becomes the first player taken in the draft. Conspiracy theories from questionable sources regarding a “package deal” will be discussed ad nauseum over the next five weeks. But the fact of the matter is that Bryan Colangelo is more than capable of getting Bargnani over by himself if he so desires, and will be making that final decision himself, particularly since the framework has been in place for over a year now to get him out of his contract at Benetton. Aldridge is the more naturally gifted of the two from a physical standpoint, and possesses just as much, if not more, raw talent.

Plenty of speculation in NBA circles is already revolving around potential trade offers that will be placed on Colangelo’s desk in order to try to get a deal done, and there is a certain sentiment that this could indeed be what the Raptors opt for in order to speed up the rebuilding process. A solid point guard would have to be part of the package, as the current Raptors front office is apparently not as high on rookie Jose Calderon as former GM Rob Babcock was, and Mike James is likely to be let go due to his “instability” both on and off the court as well as the questionable quotes he is already making to the media. Options at the point include Chris Duhon, who is reportedly aggressively being shopped but just signed an RFA offer sheet last summer, Earl Boykins, on the block in a package from Denver with Kenyon Martin, or former Phoenix Sun Leandro Barbosa, who might be squeezed out due to the huge raise he’s said to be looking for that will put Phoenix well over the Luxury tax should they extend Boris Diaw this summer as expected. Any package would have to include a lottery pick and help the Raptors further unload the deadweight they have on their roster.

#2- Chicago Bulls

Will Consider: Andrea Bargnani, Tyrus Thomas, Adam Morrison, Rudy Gay, Brandon Roy

After coming full-circle and making the playoffs two years in a row, the future is now for the Baby Bulls and the next goal should be to advance another round in the NBA playoffs with the excellent young core John Paxson and Scott Skiles have developed.

Potential smokescreens that have been going around the NBA ever since their stint in the playoffs ended say that Adam Morrison is the player that Paxson and Skiles covet the most, but that’s somewhat hard to believe when looking at the makeup of their current roster.

LaMarcus Aldridge is the player that makes the most sense, and the Bulls would certainly snatch him up if the Raptors somehow decided to pass on him. With Aldridge off the board in this projection, Andrea Bargnani becomes the next best option. The thing the Bulls are lacking the most at the moment is point production from their big men, as Tyson Chandler’s incredibly disappointing 5.3 point per game average just isn’t going to cut it next to Mike Sweetney and Othella Harrington. This is precisely the reason why Tyrus Thomas seems unlikely here, as he’s more of a defender and rebounder like Chandler and appears furthest away from being able to contribute immediately on a potential laden team that has finally grown up. Bargnani is the best offensive player the Bulls will find here in terms of the bigs, and he should be able to create quite a few mismatches with his ability to space the floor with his perimeter shooting and drive to the basket with his excellent ball-handling skills and first step.

If the Bulls have their heart set on drafting Aldridge, most NBA people seem to think that a package involving either Chris Duhon or the #16 pick along with their own lottery selection will get the job done, although this might be too high of a price to pay in a draft where any one of five players could go #1.

#3- Charlotte Bobcats

Will Consider: Adam Morrison, Tyrus Thomas, Rudy Gay, Brandon Roy

Refusing to play the tanking game over the past two seasons, justice was finally served when the Bobcats landed in a spot that is appropriate to where they stand in terms of the improvements that need to be made. And although they would probably like to get a piece of LaMarcus Aldridge, they are in a great spot to add another important cog in a building plan that has so far been executed extremely well for an expansion team.

Should Aldridge and Bargnani be off the board at this point, Adam Morrison appears to be the next most viable option for a team that is absolutely desperate for perimeter shooting and scoring from the wing. Playing next to a long and athletic freak who compliments him extremely well in Gerald Wallace, Morrison will be able to focus on what he does best—creating shot opportunities, handling the ball, knocking down jump-shots, and continuing to fulfill the emphasis that Bernie Bickerstaff has placed on passion, work-ethic and a winning attitude to keep local fans excited about the team. In this scenario Morrison would be allowed to play the shooting guard role offensively and defend the least dangerous of the two swing players the Bobcats will be going up on a nightly basis.

If it’s the homerun pick the Bobcats are after, Rudy Gay makes sense from a long-term perspective. The problem is he duplicates many of the things that current small forward Gerald Wallace does, although he has the potential to possibly become the best player in this draft when it’s all said and done. Considering Bickerstaff’s track record, though, and where the team stands at the moment, Morrison seems like the favorite early on.

#4- Portland Trailblazers

Will Consider: Brandon Roy, Tyrus Thomas, Rudy Gay, Shelden Williams, Patrick O'Bryant

Portland came out the biggest losers on draft night when they fell from #1 all the way to #4, but considering where their team stands at the moment and how things might shake out, this isn’t nearly as bad a scenario as it might have been in years past.

With Joel Przybilla seemingly on his way out of town for “greener” pastures than Portland can offer, and Theo Ratliff nearing the end of his career, it’s safe to say that LaMarcus Aldridge is going to be the #1 player on their board. This could mean that Portland will (again) look to trade down a few spots and take a flyer on either Patrick O'Bryant or Shelden Williams, but it’s difficult to see them getting even the poor value they received last year. Reaching for them is an option, but the Blazers would be well served to take a long hard look at a player from their area in Brandon Roy who could come in and be an excellent contributor right off the bat. Opponents will say that they just drafted their shooting guard of the future in the mid-lottery last year by taking Martell Webster, but they are not mutually exclusive as the two can play together at the same time, with one being a 1/2 and the other being a 2/3. Juan Dixon is best suited coming off the bench like most combo guards do, and Darius Miles does not appear to be a part of their long term plans. Considering the tenuous situation Portland is in both in terms of their roster makeup, team chemistry and the turmoil the front office is going through with no General Manager and possibly no home down the road, taking a player who has no downside and can relate to the fans makes perfect sense. As one scout tonight told us, “that’s absolutely the right move for them…you know exactly what you are going to get with him. We are talking about a complete player with an excellent character who is going to be able to step in and play for them right away.”

#5- Atlanta Hawks

Will Consider: Marcus Williams, Tyrus Thomas, Shelden Williams, Patrick O'Bryant

The perma-rebuilding process Atlanta has been going through over the past decade continues with this year’s draft, but for once the Hawks will actually be in a situation to draft a number of players who could fill a need right off the bat

Last year there was a perception out there that Billy Knight absolutely had to take Marvin Williams as his upside was too great to pass on. Chris Paul was never given a serious look according to what his camp has told us; and most people we spoke to this year think it’s safer to project them making another foolish mistake rather than take a player who makes sense. Their GM Billy Knight is fairly blunt (some would say stubborn) and he’s apparently already making it known according to what we’ve heard and read that he has no interest whatsoever in Marcus Williams. We’re hoping for the sake of Atlanta Hawk fans that is just a smokescreen on his part and that he will indeed at least give Williams a legitimate chance to show what he can do in a two on two workout.

Williams has been playing with phenomenal athletes his entire career and has shown to be at his absolute best when pushing the ball up the floor. The Hawks have the athletes to help him average double-digit assists down the road, and no salvation in terms of free agent point guards can be found anywhere on the distant horizon, even in the unlikely scenario that they would consider playing in Atlanta. It would be a terrible mistake to force another square peg into a round hole, even if it doesn’t fit into Knight’s “vision” of what an NBA team should look like.

Other options at #5 include Shelden Williams, who Knight is reportedly very fond of, as well as a player who certainly does fit in with the versatile athleticism that the Hawks usually covet in Tyrus Thomas. This is probably the highest that 7-foot center Patrick O'Bryant goes, and if the Hawks feel that they have the patience to develop him properly, he obviously fills a huge need.

#6- Minnesota Timberwolves

Will Consider: Rudy Gay, Tyrus Thomas, Shelden Williams, Patrick O'Bryant, Rodney Carney

The Timberwolves are a perennial playoff team that has missed out on the postseason for two years in a row now. This has caused tension on the part of ownership, fans, and especially their superstar Kevin Garnett, which means that the right move has to be made.

Minnesota probably doesn’t have time for 2-3 year projects as Garnett is likely to lose interest by that point, and has a significant void that needs to be filled at the small forward position. And although he isn’t the most polished player around, Rudy Gay fills most of their needs to a T and would almost certainly blossom playing next to a big man of Garnett’s caliber. His defense and athleticism will get Minnesota fans right back behind their team, and it’s hard to imagine anyone being able to fault them for drafting a player who many still think has a legit shot at going #1. Rumors of Minnesota’s interest in Gay are already out there, so this pick makes a lot of sense for them. It was almost unfathomable a month ago to imagine Tyrus Thomas slipping this far, but the Timberwolves basically need everything except a power forward, and if pleasing Garnett is any kind of factor, drafting an extremely raw 19 year old who plays the same position as him and might force him to defend centers probably isn’t the best way to do that.

#7- Boston Celtics

Will Consider: Tyrus Thomas, Shelden Williams, Patrick O'Bryant, Sergio Rodríguez, J.J. Redick, Rajon Rondo

Danny Ainge and the Celtics appear to be committed to the rebuilding process and won’t shy away from taking a player who some feel has the most upside of any player in this draft. The Celtics saw the most athletic player in the draft fall right into their lap last season, and according to the scenarios we’ve crunched, could see that happening once again this year as well with Tyrus Thomas. Thomas compliments Al Jefferson and Kendrick Perkins well and should develop nicely if he can continue to stay hungry. He could go as high as #2 overall, which means that someone else from the group above would fall to Boston and probably interest them just as much. Other options include giving Tiago Splitter the guarantee he is looking for to stay in the draft and make his way over to the NBA in a year or two either at this spot or a bit lower after trading down, or filling the biggest need on the roster by drafting a true point guard.

#8- Houston Rockets

Will Consider: Shelden Williams, Randy Foye, J.J. Redick, Rodney Carney, Rajon Rondo

The Rockets have made no secret of the fact that they want out of the lottery as soon as humanly possible and will be looking to draft the player that will help them out immediately the most. Shelden Williams seems to be as good a candidate as any, as Stromile Swift has struggled to grasp the concepts of Jeff Van Gundy’s defensive system and Juwan Howard is not getting any younger any time soon. Williams compliments Yao Ming well and should be able to step in and contribute heavily from day one, particularly if he can find a way to knock down the mid-range jumper on a consistent basis. Other strong candidates here at mostly at the guard positions where Houston is especially weak. All have their flaws, but fill substantial needs of the team in their own unique way, be it perimeter defense, athleticism, perimeter shooting, or ball-handling. The one who has the most of all of them is Randy Foye, but he might be a little too similar to the player they drafted last year, Luther Head, in being more of an undersized 2-guard than a playmaker. The Rockets will be hoping that someone projected here in the top 7 drops to them.

#9- Golden State Warriors

Will Consider: Patrick O'Bryant, Randy Foye, Sergio Rodríguez, J.J. Redick, Rodney Carney, Ronnie Brewer

The Golden State Warriors need a lot of things, but at the same time they really don’t have one position with a glaring need, which means they could very well decide to draft the best available player left on the board, which in our estimation would be Patrick O'Bryant. Adonal Foyle has never been a starting caliber center despite being paid like one, and Andris Biedrins has been a bit slow to develop even though time is still on his side. Bringing in a 7-foot monster who is mobile and possesses great length has to be considered an attractive proposition, and it’s one that makes sense when considering the team’s overall makeup at the moment.

#10- Seattle Supersonics

Will Consider: Ronnie Brewer, Randy Foye, J.J. Redick, Rodney Carney, Cedric Simmons

The worst defensive team in the NBA will surely be looking to at least partially address this problem with whichever player they take in this draft, but unfortunately it’s becoming more and more difficult to project teams drafting a player that will be guaranteed to step in for them and start right away. Our pick here, Ronnie Brewer, is versatile enough to give the Sonics minutes at the 1-3 positions in the NBA, and will certainly raise the intensity level on the floor that the team at times suffered from. The Sonics are surprisingly set at nearly every position with either established veterans or young promising talent, so bringing in a talented and high-character type player who can contribute in a variety of ways makes sense. If a more proven big man (such as Tiago Splitter) was available that wouldn’t stunt the development of Robert Swift and Johan Petro, they would likely give him a long hard look.
