Our pick for each individual team is highlighted in bold.
#1- Chicago Bulls
Will Consider: , Derrick Rose
Chicago rejuvenates their entire organization by lucking into the top pick in this years draft, and thus the best possible solution for their scoring woes in the post. While they will work out and certainly give Derrick Rose a long hard look, it makes way too much sense to draft Beasley and let him fit right in at the biggest hole in their lineupthe 4. This pick fixes a lot of things for Chicagos players, front office, local media and fan-basethings dont look all that bad any more all of a sudden.
Chicagos pick (then #9) was once on the trading blockin exchange for the right veteran to compliment their rapidly maturing high draft picks. The Bulls are in win-now mode and supposedly didnt have the patience to wait for a player to developdo they still feel the same now that they striking gold in the lottery? They will likely field some very intriguing trade offers .Sam Smith would have had a field day if he was still in the mix.
#2- Miami Heat
A huge sigh of relief from Miamis front office, which desperately needed either of the top picks to help get the franchise back on track. Although its always nice to have your pick of the litter, in certain respects its advantageous to have the decision made for youeither Beasley or Rose would be just fine, and no one will question you taking the one that falls to there. Considering that Chicago will likely take Beasley, Derrick Rose (who almost certainly would have been Miamis choice had they received the#1 overall pick) will look great next to Dwyane Wade in the Heats backcourt, allowing him to move off the ball and shoulder less offensive responsibilities, while also upgrading their perimeter defense significantly.
If Chicago trades the #1 pick or unexpectedly takes Rose, Miami will be more than happy to make due with Michael Beasley.
#3- Minnesota Timberwolves
