The Milwaukee Bucks and New Jersey Nets are who. If he falls to 13 I don't see any way the Blazers pass on him.
I completely agree with all of this as well as the fact that Randolph projects better as a PF. Jwhands, Alexander's stock has SIGNIFICANTLY risen over the last several weeks. The teams RB listed, it has been reported that these teams are really interested in him. I'm pretty sure Chris Ford (over at ESPN), Nba draftnet and Draft express now think the Bucks will grab him with the #8 pick.
Fact is, the Bucks are in a dire need of a SF. They've already got Yi and Charlie V at PF. Alexander fits into their plans more than Randolph. Moreover, I've read Skiles is taking a liking to the kid for his work ethic and character. The biggest problem with Randolph is kind of what you've already stated. He would be a project because he is FAR from a finished product. Although he shows vast potential, consider that it would take a ton of work. There have been a number of these potential kids end up no where...
