Rumor has it that the Knicks will take Channing Frye with the 8th pick and the Warriors' will have to go with plan B.

i thought drafting frye was plan B.

plan A was drafting the worst player in the lottery and/or passing on the next superstar.

Based on his first year in management, I expect (hope) that Mullin can continue to work some of his magic.

That being said, I think there's a reason that he's being tight-lipped at the moment. I keep seeing the same 5-6 guys go in various orders of the draft - Bogut, Williams, Paul, Green, Deron Williams, and Felton - plus or minus a spot or two.

That means after the 7th or 8th guy there seems to be a huge pack of 6-8 picks and it will be dependent on talent evaluation and team need.

With the amount of secrecy around who the Warriors are bringing in for workouts...I think the Warriors are targetting someone unusual.

I've seen the Warriors in mocks pick Frye, Taft... but these guys while skilled have also been labeled as "soft" by some.

The warriors have also shown to have a penchant for going after some Euro players with some upside.

Not sure if that's how the W's will pick this year because they are 1-2 players away from a solid team on their roster. That is, they don't want to have to wait until someone can develop to contribute, but need someone to provide some muscle, rebounding, defense, and shot blocking sooner than later.

I'm thinking that it might be Vasquez since reports have it that he's the one to contribute sooner than later.
