NetsDaily Mock Roundup #5

The draft is finally upon us. With only a few hours left til David Stern walks to the podium beneath Madison Square Garden, draftniks are in denial. Trades are coming hot and heavy, rumors even heavier. Execs and scouts are spending 12 to 15 hours in their respective warrooms...catering bills are climbing, carbs mounting. But they're sticking to the order, no matter how outdated it is and certainly will be.

Still, The Nets have had their discussions, with the list reportedly topped by Eric Gordon of Indiana and Danilo Gallinari of Italy. Brook Lopez is also ranked high, as is Jerryd Bayless and then there is the unrequited Love.

A survey of 15 mock drafts--out of the more than 100 on the web--shows that Gallinari of AJ Milano is firmly in the top spot for the Nets' first pick at #10, with eight of the 15 putting him at that spot. Two of the top four mocks--Draft Express, NBADraft.net, ESPN and Sports Illustrated--have the Nets taking Gallinari.

At #21, it's JaVale McGee of Nevada with three mentions. There's a consensus at #40...Joey Dorsey of Memphis getting three votes out of the nine that project second rounders.

Here are the latest picks...as of Thursday morning.
