Quick Hits 4/21/09

After a couple of days away with family and other busy times, I think we need to catch-up on the happenings.

Draft Declarers Round 5

This is maybe the most hot and cold group we have seen to date.  Only Mills should really consider the jump, but I think he could do himself more good to stay and wins some more games.  Mitchell had a great year, but needs refining, and Daye needs to stay and evolve into a player.  Sloan, Reynolds and Brown will be solid players in the league and might be heading into the draft because it is considered a weak draft.

Harangody should come back and make up for this poor year at Notre Dame.  Even though I don’t think he will be high than a late first round pick – and that might be generous.

PS – Ricky Rubio has declared.  But he is under contract with his current club.  There is a reported 7.8 Million buyout price tag for a NBA team to pay just to sign him.

Rubio is behind only Blake Griffin on Chad Ford’s Top 100 list.

NBA Awards

Congrats to Cavs Head Coach Mike Brown and Orlando Magic Center, Dwight Howard.  Brown officially winning the Coach of the Year Award after one of the more impressive seasons in the last couple years and Howard pulled in the Defensive Player of the Year – to be annouced today.  Brown had over 200 more points than the next coach and over forty more votes.

Pitno Going to Florida

Not that one.  His son.  26 year old Richard, is leaving the comfort of his Dad’s place to hanging out with Billy Donovan.  That’s it.  Nothing more.  But it does make me wonder, why.  Same job, different team.
