ESPN 2011 NBA ReDraft

23

No. 10 pick: The Kings select Kenneth Faried No. 10 pick in actual 2011 NBA draft: Jimmer Fredette This is one of the easiest picks to make simply because of Faried's talent and the Kings' need for someone like him. Toughness, energy, explosive athleticism and a good feel for the game -- all things every team needs but none more than Sacramento. A Faried-Cousins front line would be terrific from day one. I'm not sure anyone could have saved Paul Westphal's job, but Faried would have at least helped the Kings to a much better start. No. 17 pick: The Knicks select Isaiah Thomas No. 17 pick in actual 2011 NBA draft: Iman Shumpert Thomas has beaten out Jimmer Fredette in Sacramento, so he beats him out here too. Both guys seem to have a lot of Jeremy Lin in their game, but Thomas is the more electric guy with the better decision-making skills thus far. Even as a backup, he'd help the Knicks a great deal. No Jimmer in the 1st round
