DraftExpress: Top 4 guys being mentioned by NBA teams as looking good in the Combine today: Eric Bledsoe, Paul George, Gordon Hayward, Solomon Alabi. about 1 hour ago via UberTwitter
DraftExpress: DeMarcus Cousins says he got "a really good vibe" from Minnesota today and that he thinks they would pick him if he were there at 4. about 1 hour ago via UberTwitter
A number of teams have already looked into the availability of the Philadelphia 76ers' No. 2 pick in the June 24 draft.
The asking price? Several sources said they were told that the Sixers want their trade partner to take Elton Brand off their hands. Good luck with that. With Brand set to earn $51 million over the course of the next three years, he's virtually impossible to trade.
As much as teams like the Minnesota Timberwolves, for instance, love Evan Turner, I don't think they love him that much.

Dave D'Alessandro of the New Jersey Star-Ledger wrote:The Nets are leaning toward Derrick Favors, but from what we can tell, they are also convinced that there is no way the Georgia Tech kid is ready to start – not this year, perhaps not until the middle of his second year.
And no, they’re not settled on Favors, as much as they like him. Some on the staff still believe DeMarcus Cousins is the second biggest talent in the draft. And they all agree that Wesley Johnson is the safe pick, a guy who will have a good 10-year career.
GERY WOELFEL of the Milwaukee Journal Times wrote:One of the draft’s fastest climbers is Baylor power forward Ekpe Udoh, who is drawing more than a passing interest from New Jersey at No. 3.

Ronald Tillery of the Memphis Commercial Appeal wrote:It appears that Kentucky point guard Eric Bledsoe is drawing attention from more than the NCAA. As the NCAA looks in to alleged grade fraud and illegal gifts connected to Bledsoe, the Grizzlies are said to be eyeing his services.
There is a groundswell within the organization to select Bledsoe if the Griz hold on to the 12th overall pick.
