Here's a look at my 85-96 picks.
85. John Salmons
86. Blake Griffin
87. Wilson Chandler
88. James Harden
89. Andre Miller (me)
90. Tyrus Thomas
91. Mike Conley
92. O.J. Mayo
93. Ron Artest
94. Rodney Stuckey
95. Aaron Brooks
96. Mike Bibby
Five more point guards were taken this round as well as the first two rookies.
Looking back, maybe I should have selected Stuckey or Mayo based on upside, but Andre Miller has good value this round.
Even though he is coming off the bench, as of now, we know he is a steady producer. He has missed three games over the past three years and averaged 16.5 points, 6.5 assists, 4.5 rebounds and 1.3 steals for the 76ers last season.
While he does not shoot many threes, he posts solid percentages and should be a steal once he gets inserted into the starting lineup.
There were several picks I liked this round: Salmons, Chandler, Thomas, Mayo, Artest, and Stuckey.
I think Harden can have a solid rookie season, but there were better players on the board.
The Hawks acquired Jamal Crawford in the offseason, which crowds the backcourt. Bibby is coming off a solid fantasy season, but his numbers will take a hit.
