Who do you think will be the biggest sleepers? Biggest reach? Biggest drop? Last one in the green room?

Andy Katz is saying Jennings won't be in the Green Room because there is too much uncertainty about where he will be picked. And he and his agent don't want him to take a risk of being the last one in the Green Room.

Latest from Givony:
6:45

We're hearing that Sacramento and Portland are closing in on a deal that would send Sergio Rodriguez and the #38 pick to Sacramento for #31.

I don't get what Portland's doing that for. Rodriguez is a pretty good back up. Maybe they plan to get another PG like Hinrich which will move Blake back onto the bench?

What exactly is the green room?

You know the area where all the first round players (usually 15 of the top 20 picks or so are there) sit, those who are in attendance at the draft?...that's the green room. They're the ones who go up on stage, hat in hand, and shake the devil's...I mean Stern's hand. The guys who the camera pans to every 10 seconds.

Rodriquez wants out of portland mostly citing playtime and role.

The green room is the floor where selected players and their families sit to watch and wait for their pick. I'm pretty sure only 15 players are invited and theres a chance a player slips out of the lottery picks and ends up sitting by themselves.

Turned off the post review feature in here for the draft, since there will be a lot of posts in here over the next few hours.

I always thought the majority of players in the draft were in that room, not just a select few.

More from Givony on the Blazers - Kings trade:

6:56

Just spoke to Sergio Rodriguez's agent, Bob Myers. He says he was informed that the trade is done. Portland will likely target Victor Claver at 31, although there is some thought that they could be tempted to take him at 22.

The one with GS?

This year's draft is so much more interesting than last year with all these blockbuster trades.

So he might have sat at home for nothing (and dodged the green room for nothing)

Givony Update:

7:15

It looks like we need to move Harden into that 3 slot. That's the word here in the Green Room at least. It's really interesting to look around the tables and see who knows where they are going and who doesn't.

Regarding the Amare trade that is being reported, it seems like the Warriors are balking at including the #7 pick. I guess we'll see what happens when that pick comes up. The Suns would sure like to get Curry if he's available.

I disagree as well. Been watching him for a good while now and I really can't put into words how good this kid can be. Of course theres always potential for bust, but the hype is there for a reason. The kids simply a natural.
