Rose Likely Number One Pick

4

According to Chad Ford: The Clippers are another team that really needs a point guard. Sam Cassell is gone and there is no telling whether Shaun Livingston will ever recover. However, the Clippers might need a power forward sooner than you think as well. Elton Brand can terminate his contract this summer, and there are rumblings in L.A. that he might opt out for the chance at a title. If he does, Beasley could be the guy. But right now, all signs are pointing to Rose as the Clippers' choice if they land the No. 1 pick. By the way, this is currently a free preview of Ford's Draft Watch. You'll need Insider to read it at some point. I'm not sure where these 'rumblings' are coming from. I still say no way Elton is anything other than a Clipper next season. Of course, the bad news here is that, even if the Clippers get pretty lucky in the lottery and wind up with the second pick, the odds now appear to indicate that Rose will be gone and they'll miss out on their dream point guard. Beasley seems like a pretty good consolation prize of course.
