Around the Association: 2010 NBA Draft Previews - Remaining teams' possible draft needs

I did my best. Not good enough! Didn't complete my ambitious plan of 30 draft previews in 30 days.

But alas, I am sitting here live at media row at the 2010 NBA Draft inside Madison Square Garden. Follow me on Twitter at @poormanscommish or on Facebook at

The crux behind trying to analyze the draft needs of each team, particularly those after the Lottery picks, which may not be as clear-cut "best player available", were the salaries committed at each position. Thank you, HoopsHype.

My hope is that this will help you as you watch the Draft.

Here's a compilation of the remaining teams, from the 12th pick (Memphis Grizzlies) to the 1st pick (Washington Wizards). I left out our Golden State Warriors because I'm sure you guys are well-versed and immersed in our roster (troubles) already...

DISCLAIMER: There very well could be mistakes. I compiled these on the plane and am hastily copying/pasting into this blog entry. Only 4 hours to go!
