Not that this has anything directly to do with tonights draft but it looks like the Nets rebuilding process has begun:
Reports comming in are saying that Richard Jefferson is on the move to the Bucks for Yi Jianlian and Bobby Simmons. This isn't all that surprising considering we've heard for a few weeks that Milwaukke was itching to ship RJ out.
But they couldn't get more then this?
Jianlian played 66 games and averaged 8.6 points in 25 minutes. Simmons averages 7.6 points a game.
Jefferson is old and injury prone, but he's also an all star. The Nets could have gotten more. I find it hard to believe otherwise.
Also- From Matt Suldano via ESPN.com:
The Clippers and Sonics have agreed to swap picks as long as the Wolves take O.J. Mayo at No. 3. If Mayo isn't drafted at 3, the deal is off according to two sources close to the information. With the No. 4 pick, expect the Clippers to take Eric Gordon of Indiana. They've coveted him as the type of dominant scorer that they've been looking for. The Sonics will take Brook Lopez or Jerryd Bayless at No. 7. However it seems like Lopez will be the guy.
More throughout the night from the both of us
