Dirk to me is a real solid second round pick, safe bet for anyone there who does not want a guard in that round. I have noticed though he has been going abit later recently, round four some leagues which is real steal material. If you want to target more guards he might be there a round or two later than you think, keep an eye on if there is run of guards or centers going he might slide.
Jose will be ok, with all these options around him he doesn't have to push too much for his own shot and I agree he could very well lead the league or close to top in assists. Because he won't have to shoot so much his FG% should hold up probably not 49%, his career is 48% so hopeful, that combined with his threes plus dimes, pretty good addition for anyone in round five. I had hoped to get him as my fourth guard but just missed out.
I got Hawes in round eight and was pretty happy about it. He won't be going in that round too much anymore with all these injuries in front court, Moultrie and Allen both dinged up. I think he drops low obviously because of team he plays for and fact he does not or has not shown nice numbers for sexy points cat's. He only started 40 games last season with 12.2/8.4/2.9. His FT numbers are great for a center. Good second center oprtion, well worth owning and fast becoming a target to be first center option with his move up the boards.
Thornton I believe will be pretty good source of production this season and so cheap as well. I got him in round thirteen and seen him taken as high as seventh round. Thats too high but indication of whats to come maybe. With the coaching change and McLemore as motivation it should be good for him and there is every chance if he plays well enough to find a new home so his value could spike again at the trade deadline.
I want to write up on a few more players I have not mentioned yet soon.

B.LOPEZ(5)- Seems to be good value as first choice center in the fifth. He does not grab the boards you want for your starting center but with Humphries/Wallace gone and Garnett not playing back to backs he can only improve in this regard. He is great source for blocks and percentages will never hurt you.
D.WEST(7)- Because he is older now and with the addition of Scola he is sliding down the boards. If you are not keen on Amir as your glue man and want better points production look no further. He is a great second forward for any squad. The only cat he hurts you is threes and you can fill that out later in the draft.
D.GREEN(9)- Speaking of threes. Would you like the world record holder for most threes in an NBA final series on your roster? In this slot it's a very shrewd investment. Ginobili will never hurt his minutes and the backup Neal is now in Milwaukee.

Kyle Korver- He will still be starting this year either at the 2 or 3 and I think you get more of the same from him, and maybe even better with Smith out of the picture.
Enes Kanter- There's such a small sampling size of statistics on him that he's is going way to late in drafts imo. I think he's going to shatter his draft spot. However, that's if you draft him now. I think as the preseason gets going good, his name will come up more and he'll rise up the ranks.
Markieff Morris- Fast tempo offense and no Scola make him a great PF to pick up. I've been able to get him in the second to last or last round in drafts.
Jimmy Butler- Seems like a poor man's Kahwi to me. A fully healthy roster with Rose only helps him imo.
Paul Pierce/Kevin Garnett- Sure they won't be relied on as much, Garnett may sit during back-to-backs, and Joe Johnson is suppose to be the closer, but I think both vets will be more valuable than where I've seen them drafted.
J. J. Redick- Simply stated, Paul makes everyone better. Redick will have one of his best years ever even with the presence of Jamal Crawford.
O. J. Mayo- will be the man in Milwaukee and probably put up the numbers he was putting up pre-Dirk all year.
JaVale McGee- This is the year! I feel it strongly. FT% will not be great, but he will be overall. I seriously think he's gonna lead the league in blocks. I mean he averaged 2.0 last year in only 18 min.
I'll probably add some more later...

I have Morris in round eight in my mocks, he went round ten. Probably too high but I have kept adjusting it to the point where he just can't be the last round lol
I had a choice in round twelve to either get Redick or Jack. I went with Jack because I needed the dimes. I got Curry and a few others for good source of threes so it suited at the time but definitely if my draft was different would have picked Redick.
Once again I had choice in round nine. Do I gamble my season away on injury prone names Varejao or Bynum? Or do I be a micro manager and get KG? The choice was simple. Even with him not on back to back he still out produce them two probably. I think being a KG owner will keep me sharp as well during the season, to plug him into the lineup when it suits, forward/center eligibility nice.
Butler is one of them ones that could go a round higher. In the sixth and seventh round it gets alittle bit murky and there is alot of bad selections around this time. I think the trick with it is to push all the younger starters such as Butler and Kanter up in your mock and let the older, injury prone ones fall lower to someone else.
I was thinking yesterday actually I have a feeling that Kanter will out perform all of his Jazz team mates. I think the general consensus is Favors, Hayward, Burke and then Kanter but it could so easily flipped on it's head because everyone is looking at small subsets.
I just can't draft McGee, can't get my head around the FT%. No doubt he is the main man in the middle now, hope Shaw gets the best out of him and he has matured alittle bit. He has all world talent and well and truly sort out your blocks. I just have not figured out a way to carry these bad FT% players without punting and in eight cat it's just difficult to give up on a cat.
I like Ilyasova alot more than Mayo, simply because they are being drafted in virtually the same slot, just don't think thats right. I would have no problem drafting Mayo abit later or if I missed out getting Ersan though. He needs those big minutes which he should get on that roster.
Korver is moving down the boards. I think to begin with he will be a great source but as the season goes on and he gets his fitness back Lou Williams could be a problem for him. But for where Korver is being drafted you can't really go wrong too much.
