Vinnie's Mock 2008 NBA Draft: Draft Day Edition

>> Thursday

Now that the pre-draft posturing and speculation is all but through, here's how I think the lottery selections will shake down (along with Draft Express's picks).

1 Bulls
Draft Express: Derrick Rose, G, Memphis
My prediction: The Bulls will package this pick along with Kirk Hinrich, Tyrus Thomas, Ben Gordon, and Luol Deng in a rumored three-way trade with Miami and New York, in which they would receive Dwyane Wade, Udonis Haslem, the #2 pick, Eddie Curry, David Lee, New York's 2011 first-round pick, Jalen Rose, and Travis Best.

2 Heat
Draft Express: Michael Beasley, F, Kansas State
My prediction: The Bulls select Derrick Rose.

3 Timberwolves
Draft Express: O.J. Mayo, G, USC
My prediction: The T'Wolves select Michael Beasley and trade his rights to the Celtics for Sam Cassell, P.J. Brown, and Brian Scalabrine.

4 SuperSonics
Draft Express: Brook Lopez, C, Stanford
My prediction: The Sonics select O.J. Mayo but are immediately folded, with Mayo's rights falling to Boston.

5 Grizzlies

Draft Express: Kevin Love, C, UCLA
My prediction: The Grizzlies select Kevin Love and trade his rights to the Blazers for Channing Frye.

6 Knicks
Draft Express: Danilo Gallinari, F, Armani Jeans Milano
My prediction: The Clippers trade up for this pick, attempt to draft Gallinari, but write down his team's name instead, ending up with an actual pair of jeans.

7 Clippers
Draft Express: Jerryd Bayless, G, Arizona
My prediction: The Heat select Brook Lopez.

8 Bucks
Draft Express: Joe Alexander, F, West Virginia
My prediction: The Heat trade Ben Gordon and Ricky Davis to the Bucks to acquire this pick and select Robin Lopez after they notice Brook looking forlorn.

9 Bobcats
Draft Express: Russell Westbrook, G, UCLA
My prediction: The Bobcats take Kosta Koufos, prompting Stephen A. Smith to exclaim, "Kosta Koufus? Larry Brown’s a doufus!"

10 Nets

Draft Express: Eric Gordon, G, Indiana
My prediction: The Nets take Alexis Ajinca, who is pelted with grapes.

11 Pacers
Draft Express: Kosta Koufos, C, Ohio State
My prediction: The Bulls step in here to use the Knicks' 2011 pick and take Brittney Griner.

12 Kings
Draft Express: D.J. Augustin, G, Texas
My prediction: The Knicks finally realize that they never used the #1 pick from the Chicago/Miami deal and take Roy Hibbert, who is booed so mercilessly that he cries on David Stern's shoulder.

13 Trailblazers

Draft Express: Alexis Ajinca, C, Hyeres-Toulon
My prediction: The Blazers take Brandon Rush and trade his rights in a five-way trade with Boston, Minnesota, Memphis, and Lottomatica Roma (Italia, Serie A), in which Memphis receives Randy Foye, Brandon Roy, and Brandon Rush; Roma receives Tony Allen. Ray Allen, Allan Ray, and Rudy Gay go to the Blazers, and Foye and Frye are sent to the Celtics, along with Minnesota's conditional 2012 first-round pick. Frye, Foye, Roy, Ray, and Gay all fail their physicals, and the deal falls through.

14 Warriors

Draft Express: Donte Greene, F, Syracuse
My prediction: The Warriors take, ummm... Eric Gordon. Or Russell Westbrook. Whatever. No one's reading anymore.
