No Surprises: Bucks picking 10th

The bad news: the Bucks didn't get lucky in the NBA draft lottery.  The good news: neither did any of the teams behind them in the lottery standings. As a result, the Bucks are now officially the proud owners of the 10th pick in the 2009 draft. 

Also not getting lucky were the two teams with the best chance of winning the right to draft Blake Griffin, as the Kings and Wizards were leapfrogged by the Clippers, Grizzlies, and Thunder.  That's fine by me, as I'm always happy to see the first four picks being held by teams in the Western Conference.

So with the lottery out of the way, let the speculation begin.  With the Grizzlies already having Mike Conley/O.J. Mayo and the Thunder having Russell Westbrook, does that mean Ricky Rubio could slip outside the top three?  Is Blake Griffin doomed now that he's destined to be a Clip? 

Most importantly, who do you think the the Bucks should take 10th overall?  Below is a list of guys who might be there.  I've excluded Griffin, Rubio, and Hasheem Thabeet since that trio seems to be in everyone's top four or so.  Feel free to exclude guys you don't expect to be there, like Jordan Hill, James Harden, and Demar DeRozan.  I'll include them all for the time being, but we'll try to be a little more realistic with our option as the top nine become a little more clear.

Of the guys who might be available,
