Brewer Projected 11th Pick to Magic in Mock Draft

9. Golden State Warriors: Patrick O'Bryant, C, Bradley: O'BryantRationale: After getting Andris Biedrins, Ike Diogu, and Chris Taft in the last two drafts, do the Warriors still need bigs? Sadly, yes.Also Considered: Rodney Carney, Ronnie Brewer
10. Seattle Sonics: Shelden Williams, PF, Duke Rationale: Other than Tyrus Thomas, Williams is considered the best shot-blocker in the draft and is viewed just as pro-ready after spending four years being groomed by Coach K. With Chris Wilcox hitting the free agent market and a pair of unproven players at center, the Sonics can't avoid addressing their frontcourt. Also Considered: Ronnie Brewer
11. Orlando Magic: Ronnie Brewer, SG, Arkansas: J.J. Redick might be the pick here, but can the Magic really afford to use this pick on a sixth-man chucker? Orlando needs more than just a shooter, and Brewer can defend, handle the rock, and get to the rack—all of which makes him a good fit with Jameer Nelson in the backcourt.
