If anything Jordan Crawford reminds me more of CDR.
Jones reminds me of Ben Gordon.

Even though Crawford hits at a higher percent, his form is a little wierd and inconsistent, looks like he pushes the ball too much. Jones has much better form and gets better elevation, quicker release.

Check out the newest Yahoo mock-

Armon Johnson at 27 and Avery Bradley at 31?
I thought Bradley had a chance to go in the later part of the lottery?

What about guys like James Anderson, Damion James, or Hayward?
IMO, we need to get a small forward with either the 27th or 31st pick because we don't have a legit one. Twill is more of a guard than a forward IMO. We also need to find a solid back-up for Brook, so maybe someone like Whiteside, Alabi, or Zoubek? Overall, in this draft we should go PF,C, SF and maybe buy a pick and go for a combo guard.

This team is too devoid of talent and has too much cap space and stashed assets to worry about drafting for positional needs. You take BPA no matter position at every pick unless it's a complete toss up based on talent, then you use positional need as the tie breaker...

I was hoping we could buy the Hawks' 24th pick and draft a guy like Seraphin or maybe Alabi? then with 27th & 31st go for guard that can shoot and a small forward with size. I understand that we really should go for BPA, but at the same time we should aim to try to fill our needs IMO.

I don't see any small forward worth spending a draft pick on after the early twenties assuming no one free falls.
Darington Hobson is the only possibility and I personally don't have the knowledge on him to give you any opinion, but I will say he didn't measure out especially great for a small forward, more for a very big guard.

I think James Anderson is a sleeper in this draft... the dude is a pretty good shooter from I saw and can ball. Thoughts on this guy?

I don't think he's a sleeper. He's a true SG. I'm not a huge fan, honestly. He's a good shooter and a scorer who had a very, very good season last year. I think he's a little weak and not a great athlete. He'll be drafted in the middle of the first round, I'd guess.

Ugh, James Anderson, I didn't even think of that. Maybe that's who we are trying to move up to get at 19...
