Ford: Oden v. Durant an 'easy call' for Kings

ESPN.com's draft guru Chad Ford breaks down which phenomenal college star each current lottery team would pick if lucky enough to get the #1 choice in the draft.

The Kings are, obviously, a no-brainer. Here is what Ford has to say:

This is an easy call. Brad Miller's on his last legs, and the team already has made a major commitment to Ron Artest.

Put Oden with Artest, Kevin Martin and Mike Bibby and the Kings are contenders again. Put Durant on the team and it's a potential soap opera.


This was obviously written before Artest's arrest, but I doubt it changes anything. There's a pipeline of talent at the wing positions. There's nothing in the middle. No-brainer.
