What I loved about this draft were the sleepers from the second round. I like some of the international guys who might stay overseas a little longer. Also, the Blazers did well for themselves all around.

Now let's look at the trades. No KG deal here sorry. The Knicks traded Channing Frye and Steve Francis to the Blazers for Dan Dickau, Fred Jones and Zach Randolph. What a great deal for New York if Zach holds up off the court. I think the Blazers had to unload on a bad story in Randolph but they still got something good in the deal. I would like to see a buyout of Steve Francis so they can have a locker room atmosphere. The Bobcats traded young Brandan Wright to the Golden State Warriors for veteran Jason Richardson and the draft right to Jermareo Davidson. I hate this deal for the Bobcats. They need young on the rise talent instead of already proven gone in a few years talent. Ray Allen and the draft rights to Glen Davis were dealt to Boston for Delonte West, Wally Szczerbiak and the number 5 pick Jeff Green. I like this deal for the Sonics green. You get younger and you add a few proven guys to go along with. The only negative is that contract of Wally Szczerbiak.

Overall, I like the moves by the Knicks, Blazers and Sonics. More on the draft later today.
