Chad Ford's 2010 NBA Mock Draft, Version 3.0 has the Raptors selecting one-and-done centre Daniel Orton of Kentucky. Ford also predicts that Ekpe Udoh, Hassan Whiteside and Solomon Alabi will get long looks here.

DraftExpress and HoopsHype also have the Raptors selecting Orton while NBADraft.net has Cole Aldrich going 13th overall.

Knicks VP of basketball operations, Glen Grunwald, a remnant of the Isiah Thomas era, has a year left on his contract, and LeBron James could have a say as to whether he’s kept on board.

When I read this, I'm reminded of the Dave Chappelle skit 'When Keeping It Real Goes Wrong': According to a probable cause affidavit, a trusted police informant identified Memphis Grizzlies player Zach Randolph as a major marijuana supplier in Indianapolis.
