Brockman to play for the Devil?

That’s what ESPN’s Andy Katz predicts, writing in a mock draft released this morning that Jon Brockman will go to evil Oklahoma City with the No. 25 overall pick, late in the first round.
Katz writes that “remember, the Thunder brass used to be in Seattle.” First, thanks for reminding me. Second, I thought they hated every single thing about Seattle, which is why they lied, cheated and stole their way out of town with all the swiftness of Ichiro beating out an infield hit. Did any of the “Thunder brass” even take the time to figure out where UW was, much less attend a Husky game, in the few minutes they spent here? Seemed like they were too busy working on their lying, cheating and stealing — The NBA: Where Thievery Happens — to pay any attention to anything else.
But I digress — my bitterness apparently hasn’t dissipated much, has it?
It would obviously be great for Brockman to go in the first round. And all the mystery surrounding Brockman the last month or so would make even more sense if he did end up in the first round — his media banishment will end tonight as he has already scheduled, through, the school, a teleconference shortly after the draft.
NBADraft.net, meanwhile, has Brockman going to Utah with the No. 50 overall pick in the second round.
And ProBasketballNews.com has Brockman going to the Lakers with the No. 42 overall pick.
But showing the inexactness of all of this, RealGM.com doesn’t list Brockman anywhere in its mock draft, updated today — though it has Jrue Holiday at No. 4, which just seems hard to believe.
Brockman isn’t listed in the first-round mock drafts of HoopsHype.com, which only does a first round.
Good news is that soon, we’ll have the real thing to debate, instead.
