The World Famous Layup Drill RumorMill

Former Syracuse point guard Jonny Flynn wasn’t sure a few months if he was going to enter the NBA Draft. Now with just two weeks to go, it is certain he will not only land in the lottery, but may start a bidding war between the Knicks and Nets.

The NY Post
reports that New York is concerned their top choice, Stephen Curry may be taken by the time they select at No. 8, and if that is the case, Flynn would be their next choice. If Flynn somehow gets past the Knicks, New Jersey would hope he falls right to them at 11.

One player that may be on his way out of the top 10 is Jordan Hill. Hill, who was projected as high as going fourth at one point, may now be heading down toward the end of the top 10. The San Francisco Chronicle reports Golden State may take a long look at Hill if he is there at No. 7.

You may have heard about the David Lee to Pistons rumors that have begun to float on the net. A source close to the Pistons notified LayupDrill.com yesterday that those are not high on the radar at all, and that going after Lee would take place only if Detroit fails to land Carlos Boozer, Paul Millsap, or trade up in the draft to land Jordan Hill.

The Knicks may have another move in place, according to the Bergen Record. There may a deal in place with the Portland Trailblazers that would bring Sergio Rodriguez to the Knicks. It’s not certain what the Blazers would be getting in return according to the rumor.
