In the Herald, Steve Bulpett tells us that Danny has added some names to his list of possible draftees. After saying that the Celtics had no interest in Noah, Bulpett now grudgingly adds him to the list. I wonder if it is just Bulpett who doesn't like Noah. He does add that some of the players Danny is considering is only if the Celtics trade down to a lower pick than 5th.
The Globe once again doesn't discuss the Celtics but has an interesting article on how the Finals lacked competition and consequently, lacked viewers.
Talks have stalled between the Lakers and Pacers on the O'Neal trade. Haaretz is reporting that Blatt has signed with a Turkish team.
Both Yi and Greg Oden have Blogs now. Draft Express has a new podcast up that discusses Yi's workouts, a possible promise for Hawes and more. Draft Express also has a good article on common profiles of draft busts. They also project which players in this draft may fit those profiles. Some possible Celtics picks in Yi, Green and Thornton are mentioned. Please note that Noah is not.
Florida power forward Joakim Noah has elected not to work out for the Bucks, who hold the No. 6 pick in the draft. "He and his agent made a decision it wasn't a workout they wanted to do," director of player personnel Dave Babcock said. "We would have liked him to work out, but everybody has their views on each situation." Noah already has gone through workouts for Chicago, Charlotte, Minnesota and Boston, and he has workouts scheduled with Memphis, Sacramento and Atlanta. It's apparent that he doesn't want to be drafted by Milwaukee, which is curious since the sixth pick seems like the highest spot he'd be taken.
13 days until the draft and I am getting very nervous wondering about what Danny is going to do. Will he make a good trade and get a lower draft choice and a young All Star in return? Will he keep the pick and pick someone very good? Or will he trade for a used up player and a third string player? Given Danny's past performance, I really don't know what to expect.
