Live Blog: Draft

Okay, we’ve wrapped up until the Sixers first rounder. They have a second rounder at 50, and we’ll put that up here as it comes along.

9:07 – Sixers take Nikola Vucevic. Center out of USC. Fills a need, not sure how good he’ll be.

9:01 – Leonard goes to Indiana. Not a fit at all, but clearly the best value and player available at 15. Now the Sixers have a choice to make. Who do they take?

8:55 – Houston picked Marcus Morris. Huh? Vucevic, Leonard guaranteed to be here. Interesting. Not sure who the Sixers take. Leonard ranked very highly by many media and team types.

8:52 – The Sixers may be in position to take Vucevic here, if he gets by Houston. I think he does, since Leonard is still there.

8:47 – Uh oh. Markieff Morris is taken. Thought he’d be a safety valve for the Sixers.

8:42 – Alec Burks taken by Utah. Jimmer consolation prize. Morris twins, Vucevic, Hamilton, Singleton, Motiejunas available still.

8:35 – Golden State takes Klay Thompson. Assume they’ll get aggressive with moving Monta now. Please not to us.

8:29 – Sacramento gets its Jimmer.

8:23 – Charlotte grabs Kemba Walker. Kawhi Leonard is still available. And Utah may be screwed in its Jimmer quest.

8:18 - Brandon Knight goes here. I expected them to go big, so that’s good for us.

8:12 – Biyombo goes to Charlotte. Sounds like a million dollar movie. Also, that again does not bode well for the Sixers.

8:10 – Vesely gets drafted by Washington. I’m 3-for-6!

8:04 – Jonas goes to the Raptors. Of course they take a Euro. I did not expect this. Also, 4 bigs in the first 5 picks is not good for the Sixers. Hope that a decent one is left when they draft. Otherwise, they might go with Hamilton/Marcus Morris.

8:01 – For perspective on Thompson, several mocks had the Sixers taking him at 16 early in the draft process.

7:57 – Tristan Thompson goes fourth to Cleveland. Much higher than expected. Shuffles up the order a bit. Cleveland wanted a guy for next year, it looks like.

7:50 – The first domino falls as Enes Kanter goes to Utah. They are after the Jimmer. Or Kemba Walker. But this makes everything else change. Cavs have #4, have no use for Brandon Knight with Irving on board, and may take Valanciunas.

7:45 – Officially, Derrick Williams is a T-Wolf. Now the exciting part starts – does Utah go Knight or Kanter here?

7:40 – Kyrie Irving indeed goes first. Minnesota’s on the clock. Derrick Williams is expected to go here, but it’s not a certainty.

7:35 – Cleveland’s on the clock. Probably Kyrie Irving.

7:28 –  We’ll be chatting in the comments, that way everyone can join. Up here, we’ll update the picks and keep track of how it affects the Sixers.

7:25 – Hey – Sean here – just back from being out for the last 4-5 hours, and ready for the draft.

7:18 – Hello Sixer Sense readers, this is Kyle. Sean will be joining us later.  I want to start out by saying Jimmer needs to lose the derby hat.
