In response to a specific question from WFAN's Mike Francesa, Rod Thorn said Connecticut's Josh Boone, "interests us", noting he can play defense and run the court. Thorn added Boone is "challenged offensively." He praised Boone's teammate Hilton Armstrong--"could go in the top 15"--and called Villanova's Randy Foye the surest thing in the draft. He expressed reservations about Andrea Bargnani [inexperience], Tyrus Thomas [skill level], Rudy Gay [work ethic] and Adam Morrison [strength].
