We pick up the draft at Pick 20.
20. Charlotte Bobcats (from Denver)-- Alexis Ajinca 7'1" C, France
21. New Jersey Nets (from Dallas)-- Ryan Anderson 6'10" F, Cal
22. Orlando Magic-- Courtney Lee 6'5" G, Western Kentucky
23. Utah Jazz-- Kosta Koufas 7'0" C, Ohio State
24. Seattle Supersonics-- Serge Ibaka 6'10" F, Congo
25. Houston Rockets-- Nicolas Batum 6'7" G, France
26. San Antonio Spurs-- George Hill 6'2" G, IUPUI
27. New Orleans Hornets for the PORTLAND TRAIL BLAZERS-- Baby Point Guard 27" PG, Not Yet In School (maybe next year) Darrell Arthur 6'9" PF, Kansas
28. Memphis Grizzlies-- Donte Greene 6'10" F, Syracuse
29. Detroit Pistons (to Seattle)-- D.J. White 6'9" PF, Indiana
30. Boston Celtics-- What is going on? Is that assistant commish drunk in the back or something? They're slapping him around and forcing coffee down his throat so he's ready for the second round? Ahhhhh...there we go. J.R. Giddens 6'5" SG, New Mexico
Note: I'll say this again later, I'm sure, but for you draft diehards...there's another trade coming. Tonight, tomorrow, July 1, it's going to happen. There is no way on earth we're keeping Lamarcus Aldridge, Channing Frye, Ike Diogu, and Darrell Arthur. That just can't happen. It's a critical mass of power forwards leading to massive implosion.
Update: Josh McRoberts is apparently part of the Indiana deal also.
NEW THREAD ALERT: We will start a new thread for the fast-moving second round and all of the hardy souls who follow it. Some of these trades ought to be announced officially then.
