Ford: Lottery Targets For Blazers

Chad Ford of ESPN.com runs down potential 2012 NBA Draft targets for the Portland Trail Blazers. ------------------------------------- New Jersey Nets (22-44): 7.5% chance of winning the lottery The Nets are praying that they convert that 7.5 percent chance into some luck on lottery night. If they don't get one of the top three picks, they have to ship their pick over to the Blazers as part of the Gerald Wallace trade. If the Nets have the pick, they'd obviously take Davis at No. 1. Kidd-Gilchrist and Beal round out the top three for them. The Blazers also would look hard at Beal, Harrison Barnes and perhaps Kendall Marshall if they get the pick. Portland Trail Blazers (28-38): 0.8% chance of winning the lottery The Blazers need guards and a center. But at this point in the draft, you probably just grab the best player available. Perry Jones, Austin Rivers, Terrence Ross and Jeremy Lamb should all be in the mix here. ------------------------------------- -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
