NBA Basketball Column: 2005 Draft Recap - Part 1
Saturday's Pickups of the Day
Bradley Beal- Must-add player.
Jeff Green- Must-add player.
Carlos Delfino- Must-add player.
Moe Harkless- Very close to a must-add player.
Vince Carter- He keeps going off. Five more triple to help Dallas get the win.
Danny Green- Manu will be limited and the Spurs will need DG for seeding purposes.
Martell Webster- All he does is put up scoring in the teens with multiple 3s.
Nate Robinson- He put up 12 points with four assists. Kirk Hinrich might be out for a bit.
Andrew Nicholson- He has no competition.
Tony Allen- He’s doing work even though he doesn’t shoot 3s.
Andre Miller- He’s been consistent, which is a little surprising since Ty Lawson is smashing the NBA right now.
Jason Thompson- T-Rob’s departure should help. I don’t think Patrick Patterson fits the SAC scheme. Who knows with Smart, though?
Alexey Shved- He scored 17 points and he’s probably earned consistent playing time. Too bad Luke Ridnour didn’t get dealt.
Antawn Jamison- He can’t play D, but he’s scoring. He added 16 more on Friday.
Trevor Ariza- He’s going to see minutes in the high-20s and might average one steal and one 3-pointer.
Wilson Chandler- His 22-point game had a lot to go with Danilo Gallnari dealing with a thigh bruise.
E’Twaun Moore- Beno Udrih and Moore will split the duties with Jameer Nelson (knee) out.
Jordan Crawford- Garbage time makes his 10-point game a false positive.
Terrence Williams- He looked good and I wouldn’t have a problem if someone else thought he’s a better add than Crawford.
C.J. Watson- Deron Williams is OK for now and Joe Johnson shouldn’t miss any more games.
Bismack Biyombo- He still hasn’t done enough to suggest the Bobcats made a smart move drafting him last year. Michael Jordan is not too good at evaluating talent.
Jason Kidd- We’ll need to see it like five times in a row to think about making him a pickup.
Bernard James- Salute!
Viacheslav Kravtsov- Whoop!
Jason Smith- Anthony Davis sounds like he’s going to be OK. Smith dropped 22 points, so if AD isn’t, then he’s a decent add.
DeShawn Stevenson- He went off with 17, but he needs his rest.
Phoenix Suns- ??
