Andrea Bargnani was selected number 1 overall by the Toronto Raptors. This is a great pick for the Raptors in the future. It will take a few years for him to adjust though. The number 2 pick was LaMarcus Aldridge for the Bulls but traded to the Portland Trail Blazers. This is a bad move for Portland but they get the guard if you keep reading. The number 3 pick was Adam Morrison by the Bobcats. I like this pick because it will produce ticket sales and lots of scoring. The number 4 pick was Tyrus Thomas by the Blazers but traded to the Bulls. The Bulls are scary and young look out! The number 5 pick was Marvin Willams by the Atlants Hawks. This was a rumored promise to be picked by Atlanta. It's a safe move but not the best one. The number 6 pick was Brandon Roy to the Minnesota Timberwolves. This is an okay move. I think Roy is a great skilled NBA ready player. The number 7 pick was Randy Foye to the Blazers then Minnesota in two trades. This means the Blazers finally get a guard! Nice deal! Foye will be a great player. The number 8 pick was Rudy Gay to the Grizzlies (drafted by Houston) may be in a deal with Houston for Shane Battier. This is a horrible move. What is Houston thinking? You got a Dwade like player and you get a defense guy for him?? The number 9 pick was Patrick O'Bryant from Bradley to the Golden State Warriors. This is the hole they have been missing. This is a good choice. The number 10 pick was Mouhamed Saer Sene from Senegal to the Sonics. Too many young big men in Seattle. Maybe a trade to move one of them.
