2009 NBA Mock Draft v2.0 (Round 1)

DraftExpress, Hoopshype and some other sporting news outlets are reporting that the Thunder are leaning towards James Harden with the third pick in the upcoming 2009 NBA draft. Consequently, I’ve updated my mock to take this into account. Also, notice that the Thunder’s indifference toward Ricky Rubio drops the young Spaniard to Sacramento at #4, which negates the need for the Kings to move up to #2 and restores the original draft order.

1. LAC- Blake Griffin- PF (Oklahoma)
2. MEM- Hasheem Thabeet- C (Connecticut)
3. OKC- James Harden- SG (Arizona State)
4. SAC- Ricky Rubio- PG (Spain)
5. WAS- Jordan Hill- PF (Arizona)
6. MIN- Brandon Jennings- PG (Italy)
7. GSW- DeMar DeRozan- SG (USC)
8. NYK- Stephen Curry- PG (Davidson)
9. TOR- Gerald Henderson- SG (Duke)
10. MIL- DeJuan Blair- PF (Pittsburgh)
11. NJN- James Johnson- PF (Wake Forest)
12. CHA- Tyreke Evans- SG (Memphis)
13. IND- Johnny Flynn- PG (Syracuse)
14. PHO- Earl Clark- PF (Louisville)
15. DET- Jrue Holiday- PG (UCLA)
16. CHI- Terrence Williams- SF (Louisville)
17. PHI- Eric Maynor- PG (VCU)
18. MIN- Wayne Ellington- SG (UNC)
19. ATL- Ty Lawson- PG (UNC)
20. UTA- Chase Buddinger- SG (Arizona)
21. NOH- Austin Daye- SF (Gonzaga)
22. DAL- Jeff Teague- PG (Wake Forest)

26. CHI- Marcus Thornton- SG (LSU)
27. MEM- Tyler Hansbrough- PF (UNC)
28. MIN- Sam Young- SF (Pittsburgh)
29. LAL- Darren Collison- PG (UCLA)
30. CLE- Gani Lawal- SF (Georgia Tech)
