I spoke with long-time guy Ryan from HoopsAddict on his podcast. There's other interviews, but for those impatient ones out there, fret not: I'm first.

General Day-After Draft Thoughts

Since the friendly dictator decided to create a thread for each of the Bulls' two picks, I thought it appropriate to deflect all general post-draft discussion to yet another thread. Feel free to...

Draft post-mortem: 2nd round happens, Bulls still have Derrick Rose

98

They drafted Sonny Weems at #39, but word from the comments section is that ComcastSportsNet reports that Paxson is swapping that pick somewhere for some foreign player to be named later. [UPDATE: I...

(yet more) KC Johnson on Sports Buffett podcast

1

Taped Tuesday (I believe) One interesting thing: KC says that the unexpected increase in salary from the #9 to the #1 pick means the Bulls are likely not taking anyone of consequence in the 2nd round, and there's no chance they deal for another 1st rounder.

Clippers trading up to #4?

According to Chad Ford at ESPN, the Clippers have offered their #7 pick and the rights to their pick next season for the Sonics' pick at #4.

Rumor: (Wiz)#18 for (Rockets)Head, #25

23
Today, on www.hoopsworld.com, a rumor was floated out that the Wizards and Houston Rockets have considered or are considering a deal that would send Washington's 18th pick to Houston for the 25th pick and Luther Head. Head, who averaged 7.6 points on 43.2 percent shooting but was a total nonfactor in the playoffs, is on the hook for $1.9 million this season. If the teams were to pull off such a deal, I'd be very curious to see whether J.J. Hickson, the power forward from North Carolina State would still be around for the Wizards at 25. He's the type of wide-bodied PF the Wizards could use. Real journos are grifting from Hoopsworld now?

Hollinger on the Euros

Portland buys #27 from Hornets

Must be nice to have Paul Allen's money to speculate on Euros. This may increase their willingness to deal #13... (via the RealGM board)

Pax speaks on pick

173
[From the FanShots. There's accompanying video here. -ed.] No reveal (obviously), but seems to be leaning towards Rose. From the quotes, it's apparent that Pax is extremely high on both guys. This is certainly in line with Sam Smith's rumor that they are trying to acquire the #2 pick as well. Sounds to me, though, like he's thinking Rose. See for yourself...
