DraftExpress: 1st day at D-League Showcase. Watching Dexter Pittman vs Cole Aldrich, Sioux Falls vs Tulsa. Great weather here in South Padre. 75 degrees!

Saw Cole Aldrich at the hotel walking around on crutches last night with bandages on knees. My guess would be he had knees scoped (minor).

Great pick for Daryl Morey. Patrick Patterson is a stud. Him and Cole Aldrich are my two biggest overlooked guys in the lottery.

New Orleans acquired the #21 and #26 picks from Oklahoma City for Cole Aldrich, a source confirms to DraftExpress. Sam Presti strikes again.

Cole Aldrich to OKC someone just said. Don't say we didn't tell ya ;) Sam Presti is the man. Glad we're on the same page here. STEAL.

* For the NBA and International leagues, top 25s reflect the actual top 25 list. Due to the number of college players, we've limited top 25s in NCAA to only draft prospects which better reflects the level of competition and what we feel provides highlights of a more interesting subset. Top 25s of college stats prior to 2005 will be extremely inaccurate due to the minimal number of college profiles from 2004 and before in our database
