Luke Babbitt 8 or 9
The Clippers and Jazz are both in love with the tough-nosed, sweet-shooting forward. With Ed Davis likely going 7th to the Pistons, as Joe Dumars has him 7th on his board, Al Farouq Aminu being available at 8 appears likely. The Clippers, who need a SF, will likely decide between Aminu and Luke Babbitt. If they opt for Aminu, Utah would get the player they covet in Babbitt.
Daniel Orton to Indiana?
Daniel Orton has been rumored to be slipping of late. Not having an agent certainly doesn’t help his cause and canceling workouts with teams also isn’t a great way to insure a pick. We’ve heard that Orton may have a promise with either Oklahoma City at 21 or Miami at 18. He shut down workouts only to have one more workout with Indiana at 10.
Bucks to Look for Eventual Redd Replacement
With Michael Redd's second major knee injury, the Bucks will need to look for a 2-guard to eventually replace him.
We hear that the Bucks are extremely high on Lance Stephenson and could even consider taking him over Xavier Henry, James Anderson AND Avery Bradley. Stephenson is all over the place on draft boards as a high risk/reward type of pick.
The Bucks completed a deal for Corey Maggette today, which means selecting a physical wing like Stephenson makes less sense.
