New Jersey Nets Draft Willie Warren With 27th Pick In SB Nation's 2010 NBA Mock Draft

The 2010 SB Nation NBA Mock Draft is still(!) underway, with each SB Nation blogger making selections for their respective teams.  Community member Kid Chocolate from NetsDaily, SB Nation's New Jersey Nets blog, checks in to make the twenty-seventh overall selection in this year's mock.

With the twenty-sixth overall pick in the 2010 SB Nation NBA Mock Draft, the Oklahoma City Thunder will select Willie Warren, guard, Oklahoma Sooners.

Kid Chocolate explains: He had a down year, but Warren was considered a lottery pick a year ago.

At this range in the draft, odds are you're just getting a rotation player, so why not go for a guy who has the most potential? Last year Oklahoma had a lot of problems and chemistry issues, and I wouldn't be surprised if those were the cause of the dip in Warren's production. He could return to that lottery pick form he had as a freshman.

Ridiculous Upside reacts: With plenty of holes to fill, I'm okay with Warren here.  He doesn't represent the best talent remaining, but he might have the most upside - as KC said, he would have been a lottery pick last year.

Ridiculous Upside's Top 5 remaining prospects: 1 - Daniel Orton, C, Kentucky. 2 - Stanley Robinson, F, Connecticut. 3 - Dominique Jones, G, South Florida. 4 - Elliot Williams, G, Memphis. 5 - Darington Hobson, F, New Mexico.

Sound off, SB Nation! What say you of the Warren-to-New Jersey pick?
