after the NCAA tournament it looks like Joakim Noah is going to ride his hype into the top 5 picks in this draft. i personally do not think he is that good of a prospect for the NBA, buti really do hope he is picked this high. This gives the magic a very legitimate shot at landing a guy like rudy gay or adam morrison. it almost gurantees that we could have rodney carney as well. i am really excited about him and tyrus thomas too, and here is to hoping that they go 1-2 in the draft this year. what a sham that would be.

According to Dickie V today on the Dan Patrick show, Noah is staying. Thank god cuz I think he's not worth a high pick. Nobody in the tournament game really shined much as far as what the Magic need - which is a shooter or do it everything guy at the 2/3 position.
As long as we dont draft a foreigner this year, anybody would be welcomed here. Almost.
Rainman - Hassell and Battier both have over 4 years left on their contracts with Hassell's being at $4.5M a year and Battier at $5M ending at $7.5M. That's a lot of money to be throwing at a SF coming off the bench.

We have veterans already in Hill, Augmon, Battie and Outlaw. Of course Hill doesn't play, however Augmon and Outlaw are our mentors/cheerleaders and will play when called upon to. I think we should just let our guys develop together and don't make any drastic changes. In the draft, we should draft a senior/junior; someone that can help us right away instead of a project.
