Question 9: After Greg Oden and Kevin Durant are picked, who will be the next three, in order?

Steve Lappas
Al Horford, Mike Conley Jr., Corey Brewer. Horford has proven that he's a big-time player in big spots. Conley is a special guy, and Brewer may be the most talented guy in the draft because he can do everything.
Pete Gillen
I probably have a better chance of winning the lottery than getting these three right. You can never figure what Atlanta will pick. They should go with a point guard but I don't think they're convinced on Mike Conley Jr. I think they're gonna go big and take Al Horford. Next one, Memphis, I'm gonna say they're gonna go big also and go with Brandan Wright from North Carolina. And I think Boston wants to run and press and play fast, so I think they're gonna take Julian Wright from Kansas.
Sean Farnham
Atlanta, I'll go with Mike Conley Jr. There's a lot of hype around him. Up next is Memphis, I think they'll go with Julian Wright. I think that's a natural fit for them. They need some size, they need some guys that are more athletic. Considering the fact that Pau Gasol might eventually be moved, whether it's during this offseason or during some part of next year. When you look at Boston, they have a lot of need. If this was a better point guard draft, they'd go point guard. Because it's not, I anticipate that Boston will either look to package this pick to get a superstar they could bring in right now or I could see them going with Corey Brewer. He's a good defensive player, he's long and he could compliment Paul Pierce on the wing. I know they have Gerald Green already, but you need scorers at the next level. Corey Brewer has the potential down the road to be a Bruce Bowen-type defensive player.
