Drafting to Trade Instead of Need

Trades talks are still running wild on the internet, which is making me start to think that some teams may pick players tonight with the sole intention of trading them later. This could mess up a good number of mock drafts, but we’ll see. My guess is that Yi Jianlian gets picked too high and by a team that doesn’t need him so that they can trade him later to a team who couldn’t complete a deal in time. This should open up the way for Julian and Brandan Wright to keep slipping, as a lot of teams are harping on Yi, Florida State’s Al Thornton and possibly Washington’s Spencer Hawes.
