NBA Draft Eve Open Thread #2

First one's getting a little crowded

Here's what we've learned so far:

Chase Budinger is here.

The Rockets also traded Samuel Dalembert and the #14 pick to the Bucks for the #12 pick, Shaun Livingston, Jon Leuer, and Jon Brockman. Not entirely sure why. Leuer is a good player, but moving up just 2 spots doesn't help them get Dwight Howard or Andre Drummond.

The Bobcats acquired Ben Gordon and a protected first rounder by sending Corey Maggette to the Pistons.

The Bobcats are also actively exploring trading down from the #2 spot.

The Lakers are actively shopping Pau Gasol and Ron Artest. They want a top 10 pick and established player for Gasol.

The Thunder are supposedly looking to move up (WAY up) to try and select Bradley Beal in the draft. Hmmm...

And, if Kahn's statements at the presser are any indication, the team would like to get back into the first round. So even though the #18 pick is gone, our draft night is still very much alive with intrigue.
