Why wait for the NBA Draft on Thursday to find out who the San Antonio Spurs select?
The NBA bloggers here are Bloguin got together and did a mock draft. Here is who the Spurs selected with the 20th pick by Ed from Bloguin’s own NBADraftBlog.com:
At this point, the Spurs just go with the best available player. Bradley could have gone has high as the lottery, so to get him at #20 is a steal. He will be groomed to eventually take over for Tony Parker and allows the Spurs to shop George Hill while his stock is at its highest. In the meantime, Bradley can backup both guard positions.
Interesting. He passed up on players such as Damion James, and Larry Sanders. Also, interesting to note a big-man wasn’t drafted. Perhaps it wasn’t needed with all signs pointing to Tiago Splitter coming to the Spurs.
As for Bradley, he is a 6’3″ guard and played with the Texas Longhorns averaging 11.6 points, 2.1 assists, and shot 43.2% from the field in 2009-2010.
