June 28, 2012, 2:39 pm
Alex Kennedy from Hoops World joins Brian Berger talks hours before the NBA Draft about trade rumors, and who teams might choose.
Alex joins Brian to first talk about the many trade rumors that might happen. He first talks about Charlotte and how the Bobcats are looking to shop their pick. He explains how more than five teams have called about the pick either for Bradley Beal or Thomas Robinson. Alex says how the number one pick is a lock for Anthony Davis but after that trades and moves will happen from Sacramento, Charlotte and Houston who have three picks and looking to obtain more.
Brian asks about the Blazers at number six and who they should pick. Alex explains how Damian Lillard worked out well for the Blazers and it would fill a need the Blazers need. Alex then chats about another potential Blazers pick, Bradley Beal and how he has a lot of upside even with one year of college experience.
Alex and Brian talk about how there are talks of trades for Kyle Lowery and Pau Gasol. Alex explains how Houston is shopping everyone to obtain more picks potentially for Dwight Howard or to open cap room for the Free Agent Period.
Finally, Brian asks about who is a sleeper in the draft, who is going to take a chance on Jared Sullinger, and if the Blazers are going to keep their picks or shop them.
