Possibilities of a Brook Lopez Slip

Chad Ford offers this in today's draft notes :

The word among NBA executives drafting in the lottery is that Stanford's Brook Lopez may be the top name who could slip out of the Top 10. I spoke with a number of executives and scouts who said they thought he was a more appropriate pick in the 10 to 20 range. Some of them had both Kevin Love and DeAndre Jordan ranked ahead of Lopez on their draft boards.

As mentioned by numerous folks 'round these parts, Lopez and Hawes might be a rough pairing in that both are primarily offensive forces who lack shotblocking talent. And let's not forget Brook's possibly as wacky as Ron-Ron. Worth keeping an eye on; if nothing else, it tosses another name in the hopper for Charlotte, New Jersey and Indiana.
