MARTY BLAKE'S POST-DRAFT ANALYSIS:

"They got McDyess and Frank Williams, which will help alleviate some of their slowness. McDyess has only played 10 games in the last two years and I don't think he wanted to stay in Denver so they'll try to work out one of these deals where he'll sign for the maximum before the trade goes through."
