April, 18 2009 

1) Sacramento Kings: Blake Griffin(PF, 6-10, 250, Soph, Oklahoma Sooners)

This one's a no-brainer.

Will he enter?


3) Washington Wizards: Jordan Hill (PF, 6-10, 235, Junior, Arizona Wildcats)

You cannot teach 7-3.


5) Minnesota T'wolves: James Harden(SG, 6-5, 218, Soph, Arizona State Sun Devils)
