MARTY BLAKE'S POST-DRAFT ANALYSIS:

"Vladimir Radmanovic was moving up so he was not a surprise. He did one workout where he shot 25 three-pointers, made 20 of them, did a workout, came back and did the same thing. And I think that really helped him. He was sort of a 'tweener - small forward/power forward. He started off as a center and then worked his way out. His ballclub didn't really understand his shooting ability and that may help him with the rules changes next year. The Sonics have a scout who went overseas and saw him play a couple times so they have a good handle on him.

Jerry West loves Earl Watson and thinks he's going to be a really good NBA point guard."
