2012 NBA Draft June 28, 2012 Who we want for the Cavaliers (excluding Anthony Davis) Cavs Prediction #2-3-4-5 Prediction Brian I know the rules, but I'd still try to trade everything under the sun for Anthony Davis. I love that Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is full of leadership, hustle, and drive, but when a positive comment by an NBA player include "I wouldn't say he's a great ball handler or shooter or rebounder," it makes me nervous.

Barnes has the prototypical...

Harrison Barnes goes to Golden State Grade B+

The Golden State Warriors had to be thrilled that Barnes was still on the board. He will fit right in with their type of play. He likes to get up and down and he can shoot the three.

Suns draft North Carolina point guard Marshall

NBA scout's assessment: "He's the best passer to come through college basketball the last few years."

Regardless of what happens during the Steve Nash Free Agency Dance, Marshall would represent a long-term playmaker...
