MARTY BLAKE'S POST-DRAFT ANALYSIS:

"Cleveland changed its thinking somewhat when they took Wagner. Now did they take Wagner because Andre Miller might get traded? Miller's going to be a free agent next year and he wants the maximum. Who's going to give him the maximum? They're a bad team with Miller. Miller's a great player, but John Stockton only gets $8 million. You're going to pay Miller $18 million? Wagner can step in and play for anybody. He's going to be a big up-tempo scorer. Can he play the point? We've got shooting points -- yeah, he can play the point. He'll score as many points as Miller will right away. Boozer did not surprise me. They wanted an inside presence and maybe they thought the guy was a potential first round pick. I didn't think he played well this year."
