The Format: The Pick, your thoughts on how and why- and a percentage chance they will trade the pick


1. Washington Wizards - John Wall G Kentucky


The Wizards are actually ok at PG with Gilbert, but after the Minny Trade- costing them a top draft pick, they made their one last run with the current group and crapped out and BIG TIME, dumping players and wanting the rebuild, Arenas is the only one left, and he just got replaced. As soon as they can move him, the better- this is the Wall era in Washington.

Chances of a trade: Nil.



2. Philadelphia 76ers - Evan Turner G Ohio State



The Sixers just missed out on a dream scenario, as Wall would be a perfect fit in Philly. But they shouldn't hang their heads because they have the opportunity to take a player who many believe will be the best in the draft. Turner is the most NBA-ready player in 2010's draft by many standards, and will fit nicely beside Andre Iguodala. If Elton Brand can get his career back on track, a starting five of Louis Williams,Turner, Iguodala, Brand, and Marreese Speights could bring Philly out of the Atlantic cellar.

Chances of a trade: 0%



3. New Jersey Nets - Derrick Favors F Georgia Tech


In what seems like another no-brainer, the Nets will assuage the pain of missing out on Wall by getting the huge upside in Favors. With great athleticism and size, Favors has the ability to completely dominate the paint. While still a little raw in his post game, passing, and mid-range shooting, Favors clearly has the ability to improve. He scored plenty on his opponents while adding intimidation on the defensive end through his knack for blocking shots. With some work around the basket, Favors could make one of the best frontcourt tandems with Brook Lopez in the coming years.

Chances of a trade: 5%
