NBA Draft - Sub Categories
Welcome to the Pacific Northwest, Mr. Oden and Mr. Durant. We’re sure you will love the nationally televised games and close proximity to Nike headquarters. Please let us know if you have any issues at all…
Yes, the basketball gods have spoken and they’ve told us Greg Oden will be a Blazer and Kevin Durant is Seattle-bound. But you already knew that. What you may not know is what the entire NBA Draft Lottery really means. So let’s start at the top…
1. Portland Trail Blazers
According to Andy Katz of ESPN.com, Ohio State freshman Daequan Cook is likely to stay in the NBA Draft, barring an injury in the next two weeks. "Right now, I'm all the way in," Cook said. "There's no question [he's staying in the draft] unless an injury comes up. Right now it's just in case anything could happen until June 18 so you have to be ready for anything." He says that he is going to sign with Mike Conley Sr., who also represents Buckeye teammates Mike Conley Jr. and Greg Oden. Cook, who averaged 9.8 points and 4.3 rebounds last season, is projected as a first-round pick.
The NBA Pre-Draft Camp is held in Orlando, at Disney's Wide World of Sports Complex. The Camp runs from Tuesday through Friday.
According to CHN's 6-Star Player Ranking, the best players in camp are Daequan Cook (3 stars), Jared Dudley (2 stars), Aaron Gray (2 stars), Dominic James (2 stars), Marcelus Kemp (2 stars), and Sean Singletary (2 stars)

Today I finish up the position analysis series with the big men. Obviously the highlight here is Oden, but there's not much quality beyond the top few (especially since Hibbert decided to return to school.) This is nothing new for a position that hasn't been producing for about a decade..
