    Brackins NBA draft hypothetical...

    I was watching the Thunder and Lakers last night and kept thinking...how cool would it be if Brackins was drafted by the Thunder? They are a young, up-and-coming team that might need a guy like Craig. I'm assuming the Thunder will have a mid to late first round draft pick, about the time Brackins is expected to go...

    It would be cool, they are fun to watch, but they have two players at basically the same position who are better than Brackins (Harden and Green).

    Green yes, but Harden is a shooting guard...nothing like Brackins.

    Both better players but Brackins could be a nice player off the bench for them.

    oh, you are right. They were subbing Harden for Green last night which confused me.

    I think Craig will fit in nicely on whatever European team he finds his way to.

    And it only took 5 replies for a negative comment, actually longer than expected.

    They have enough Brackins type players, they need more strength under the basket.

    negative? it might be the truth. I personally think he will be a 2nd round pick, but end up in the NBADL.

    Re: Brackins NBA draft hypothetical...

    Right now Criag is going to have to do some impressing in workouts and camps because most places have him going in the 2nd round right now.

    This one has him going #44 which is the middle of the 2nd round: http://www.nbadraft.net/2010mock_draft

    Thats really where Brackins might benefit in his fall. He will drop from the lottery where he might have gone last year but if he stays in the first round, he'll go to a contender. Thunder would be cool, but how about San Antonio to back up an aging Duncan. Phoenix to play with Nash and that new PG they have. Utah with Williams as your PG. Cleveland and play w/ LeBron if he stays. The young guys in Portland. PF for Orlando next to Howard who could hide Brackins' defensive flaws.

    Re: Brackins NBA draft hypothetical...

    I'd like to see him come to Portland, although honestly I'm not sure he is good enough to make the squad from the start. Not with Aldridge, Batum, Webster, Howard and others all ahead of him. But at least I would get to see him play.
