2007 NBA Draft: Mock Draft

Dave Finocchio@@DaveFinocchioSenior Writer IJune 6, 2007

IconAs the trade whispers seem rather legitimate these days, here's a look at how the 2007 NBA Draft might turn out if some lowly NBA GMs exhibit a bit of courage.

 

Between Kobe, the Celtics, and the other 15 disasters in the league, we have to see something drastic...right?

 
Hypothetical trade assumptions:
 
* The Celtics trade Paul Pierce, Gerald Green, and the #5 pick to Seattle for the #2 pick and an additional salary-player. Seattle does not resign Rashard Lewis.
 
*The Lakers trade Lamar Odom, Andrew Bynum, Kwame Brown, and the #19 pick to the Timberwolves for Kevin Garnett and Craig Smith.
 
* The Bulls trade the #9 pick and P.J. Brown to the Trailblazers for Zach Randolph.
 
 
Taking the combine and theoretical trades into account, here's the latest version of my 2007 NBA mock draft:
  
1.    Portland Trailblazers — Greg Oden
2.    Boston Celtics (from Seattle) — Kevin Durant
3.    Atlanta Hawks — Brandan Wright
4.    Memphis Grizzlies — Al Horford
5.    Seattle Sonics (from Boston) — Yi Jianlian
6.    Milwaukee Bucks — Mike Conley Jr.
7.    Minnesota Timberwolves — Jeff Green
8.    Charlotte Bobcats — Joakim Noah
9.    Portland Trailblazers (from Chicago) — Julian Wright
10.    Sacramento Kings — Corey Brewer
11.    Atlanta Hawks — Javaris Critteron
12.    Philadelphia 76ers — Al Thornton
13.    New Orleans Hornets — Nick Young
14.    L.A. Clippers — Acie Law IV
15.    Detroit Pistons — Rodney Stuckey
16.    Washington Wizards — Morris Almond
17.    New Jersey Nets — Thaddeus Young
18.    Golden State Warriors — Josh McRoberts
19.    Minnesota Timberwolves (from LA Lakers) — Sean Williams
20.    Miami Heat — Jason Smith
21.    Philadelphia 76ers — Gabe Pruitt
22.    Charlotte Bobcats — Marco Belinelli
23.    New York Knicks — Daequan Cook
24.    Phoenix Suns — Marcus Williams
25.    Utah Jazz — Aaron Gray
26.    Houston Rockets — Taurean Green
27.    Detroit Pistons — Glen Davis
28.    San Antonio Spurs — Marc Gasol
29.    Phoenix Suns — Rudy Fernandez
30.    Philadelphia 76ers — Jared Dudley
