I'm watching on Comcast 623, ESPN HD. (Also on #11.)

I'll be curious to see what effect the Lottery will have on the mock drafts:

Jonathan Givony ‏@DraftExpress 7m

Yes definitely. And our board will be adjusted immediately as well RT @SotaCoachJ You live tweeting tonight's results as they're announced?

Kelly at 10

Interesting. Oregonian today has Blazers with a 90+% chance of ending up with the 10th draft pick. Not sure Kelly would fit into the Blazer current lineup, but if he played and stayed in Portland it would be great to see him develop as a player.

Good Luck to Kelly no matter what happens.

Go Bulldogs!

Chad Ford forgot to include Kelly in his revised first round mock draft (http://insider.espn.go.com/nba/draft2013/story/_/id/9299240/2013-nba-draft-chad-ford-mock-draft-30), though he had him at #16 in his Top 100 (http://insider.espn.go.com/nba/draft/results/top100/_/year/2013). Way to go, Chad ...

At least I hope it was just an oversight.

COLLEGE: GonzagaAGE: 22HT: 7-0WT: 234POS: PG
Analysis: The Pacers are in danger of losing David West this summer. While Olynyk is no West, he's a very skilled four who can create his shot off the dribble and score in the post. He's a great value here after slipping a bit with a so-so performance at the draft combine.

He has him going to Indiana at 23! :(The dumbbell added him after initially overlooking him, as noted in several of the comments.

Come on, Chad, you want to say his draft combine stats cost him 7 spots?

DraftExpress (http://www.draftexpress.com/nba-mock-draft/2013/) has him going to Oklahoma with the 12th pick! So, who knows? :)

SSF did a screen shot of #23 before Ford hurriedly plugged Kelly in to remedy a ridiculous oversight, making his choice only slightly less ridiculous.

He'd be a good fit to play alongside Andrew Bynum, if he ever gets healthy. These big guys can't seem to stay on the court snymore.

Last week on Fox sports I saw one mock draft with Kelly @10 going to the Blazers and 1 other writer had Kelly @20.

I think Kelly would be a great fit offensively for OKC.

I think the last thing OKC needs is an offensive-minded big-man. He would be their 5th option on offense behind Durant, Westbrook, Martin, and Ibaka. They need a rebounder and defensive presence. If they wanted another offensive-minded player they would play Perry Jones III instead of Perkins

About a month ago, Chad Ford was on the Bill Simmons podcast. Simmons admitted that a few years ago he thought Omar Samham would be a good NBA player. Simmons then asked Ford who might be the flop of this years draft and Ford responded Olynyk.

So it appears Ford intended to list Kelly where he did.

Seriously? An offensive minded post is exactly what they need. They have plenty defensive minded posts, actually that's all they have. Kelly would be a good fit but they really need a low post scorer.

TZF has Kelly going to the Mavericks at 13. :lmao:

Eddie Sefko (Mavs beat writer @ Dallas Morning News) has KO as a potential pick for the Mavs.

Completely an aside, I love Nick Gilbert. My son has the same condition as the Cavs owner's son and having such a great kid be a spokesman for people suffering from NF is beyond words great.

I am not the BB guy that many on here are so I don't know who needs what. Having said that, from a PR stand point, Kelly would be a great pick for the blazers. Lots of GU fans there, Pacific NW kid, great guy that won't burden them with some of the problems they have had in the past.

KO is not being seriously discussed in any of the Portland Blazer talking head local sports chatter that I have heard. Local pundits (who, like me, know nothing) are talking about Portland adding a major inside rebounding presence and/or Portland trading up from #10 to maybe a #2 - #4 draft pick in order to get Victor Oladipo. I love watching KO but I don't rank him as a serious NBA rebound threat.

But I could be wrong, just like always.

Go K.O.!

Go Bulldogs!

When Stocks was drafted in the 1st round by the Jazz, the whole basketball world wondered if Frank Laydon had lost his mind. The rest is history. JS was a 1st team UPI (now known as the coaches poll) All America selection, too.

So IF there were an announcer or two out there able to pick up on another good to great sports story, this could be it.

KO, you will all recall, was on NO ONE's preseason pick for anything before last season because he was coming off a red shirt. So what's new here ?

I do hope and believe there are enough teams interested in the talents KO does have plus the size and upside potential as well. I don't think he is off those radar screens and I believe he is going to get the opportunity we all hope he will get. It would not surprise me to see him go to the Jazz if he's available.

I am positive JS, who became world famous feeding his teammate Karl Malone, has weighed in on this and told them exactly what he sees in KO: coordination, soft hands and a damned good shooter who could get much better underneath.

I have no doubt KO will be in the NBA for a long time...how much success will depend on him, the situation/team, and luck (no injuries). His ceiling is much higher than his vertical leap!
