Depends on what the reports on his recovery are at the time of your draft. Right now, it's at least 6-9 months so missing most of next season is a possibility. At least, he'll be taking his time recuperating from all his injuries. I'd probably avoid him, and think he'll be a late round pick up by someone like Derrick Rose was for this season's draft.
Harris is a good question. Probably a fringe 5th or 6th keeper in 12-team leagues, which places him in mid-round value. Where he gets drafted will depend a lot on what Orlando does in the off season. Right now, they are not a good team, and the values of some of their players like Harris, Harkless, and Vucevic are all skewed up over the last of couple months because of that.
Deron Williams I've never felt good about drafting 1st round. I don't think this is the first time he's finished a finish a season strong and he hasn't shown yet to be consistent 1st rounder, but someone will look at him in the first round, and I'd probably feel better taking him as an early second.
My question is whether Carmelo Anthony has proven that he should be a first rounder. He's come close before, but I may still slot him as an early second.
Varejao and a whole bunch of bigs will be interesting to see how they rank. From injuries to down years to potential breakouts, there are a lot of big men to evaluate and decide on where you want to draft.
