The Minnesota Timberwolves select:

6.24 Cuttino Mobley - SG

The team is not getting any younger here, but Cuttino still has a few seasons left in him. The team won't miss a beat with Cuttino coming off the bench as he's solid both offensively and defensively. The trio of Cuttino, S-Jax and AP will be solid and ensure giving each other breaks and keep them healthy throughout the season.

With 24 Hr's since Thrills pick, the New Orleans Hornets with the 6.26 pick select:

Jamaal Tinsley

Image

We were in need of a team-orientated point guard and feel Tinsley fills the position well. He sees the court very well, makes excellent decisions and is a solid defender. He was having an outstanding season with Indiana this season showing he can operate well in a more uptempo type of offense. His downside is that he is a bit injury prone so it was justified he fell in this draft. However, he is still 29 years old and with Williams in the wings, we feel we can't lose here.

And for those wondering about his off-the-court issues, our PR guy has this statement:

"Naturally, we think he'll also be helpful in bringing a certain toughness necessary for living in New Orleans. This city is still coming back from Hurricane Katrina and crime is still an unfortunate reality. We think a man who has been involved in a few violent altercations will be able to adapt to living here better than most. In fact, we hope he will be embraced by all parts of the community and can be a factor in bringing people together."

The Sacramento Kings select:

06.25 Juan Carlos Navarro, SG

Image

With a glaring need for a SG, we picked up a "seasoned" rookie who has great experience and a polished game. He can spread the floor for our team to allow the Mind dynasty to flourish in the post. Navarro brings a toughness to our team through his gritty play on whoever he's being assigned. We look forward to his great contributions as he is playing brilliantly this year among other notable rookies.

6.20 - Glen Davis

This is more of a rush pick. I wanted a 3rd big man to rotate in, and Davis is on par with the level of player we're looking at here. If it doesn't pan out, Big Baby is just a big body to throw out there. However, I think he's got some potential.

With the 28th pick of the sixth round, the Nets proudly select...
Image

6.28 Acie Law (PG)
Position: PG
Born: 6/25/85
Height: 6-3 / 1,91
Weight: 195 lbs. / 88,4 kg.
College: Texas A&M '07

Acie Law will immediately move into the starting point guard role for the "you can't even scalp a ticket to see the" LeBron-led Nets, moving Jamal Crawford into his more natural and potent sixth man ("of the year") role. Acie is a bright, young point guard with good smarts... Makes good decisions... Can score with both hands... Good ballhandler... He helped Billy Gillispie completely turn around the Aggies program. Nicknamed "Captain Clutch" for his ability to take over the game late, Acie is a scoring point guard with an excellent basketball IQ, who has improved in just about every facet of his game.

He has great size and strength for the position, a good floor general that puts his teammates in a position to score and keeps turnovers to a minimum. His biggest asset is that he's fearless and not afraid to take clutch shots at the end of the game. A good slasher to the basket, with an excellent mid range jump shot and has improved from three point range this year. Defensively shows good lateral quickness and reflexes to play in the passing lanes. While Acie needs to improve his decision making, dictating tempo and learning the nuances of the PG position, he will have Jamal and LeBron to prod him along and encourage him and bring out the best of this high upside PG.

Due to his contributions to Texas A&M, the Texas A&M athletic department recently decided to hang Law's No. 1 jersey on the rafters in Reed Arena. He became the first Aggie in any sport to have the honor and Nets' hopefuls predict he may do the same for the Nets franchise dishing to a power squad of LeBron, Vince, Jamal, Zach and Bogut....

Acie "Captain Clutch" Law IV....welcome, welcome, welcome.... :-) :-D :-b :-] B-) ;-D

With the 29th pick, the Suns select:

6.29 Troy Murphy PF/C
6'11", 245 pounds, 27 years old

With big bodies at a premium, the Suns chose Murphy to solidify the interior presence and as a backup to Tyrus and Dalembert. He is a good complement as he is more polished offensively than the other 2 while the other 2 are more of a defensive presence. He will be good off the bench to play when necessary to spread the floor, create inside scoring, etc.
