  1. I commented in your mock #2… oops.
    I’m gonna say that Hibbert & Koufos will probably be switched… and I really hope the Jazz don’t take McGee. The way that this mock ends up, I’d go with CDR and make trades as necessary to get him playing time.

  2. CDR is a great player, but where does that leave Ronnie Brewer? I think the trades hurt Utah. A guy like Hibbert would be great, but he might not fall. I heard him as early as Sacramento. They should trade down, maybe get a DeVon Hardin, or even a DJ White.

  3. I think that bringing in CDR and putting him behind Brewer would solidify the 2-spot (CJ can be the 3rd option). Trading down would be nice too, but I’m not very high on Hardin, and DJ White seems like he might be like adding another Paul Millsap (undersized PF). Though that might be an option…
