Rank 'Em: 2005 Draft Mulligan

Created: June 23, 2010, 7:19 AM

Where would Chris Paul go today?

How would the 2005 draft play out if teams got a mulligan five years after the fact?

Like this year's draft, the 2005 selection process featured a high-profile point guard -- two of them, in fact. Unlike what most expect to unfold this year, the teams at the top of the 2005 draft passed on the perimeter players. The Bucks took Andrew Bogut No. 1 and the Hawks took Marvin Williams No. 2, while Deron Williams and Chris Paul slipped to the third and fourth picks, respectively.

How would things look if the same players were available today? Which point guard would go first, and where would sleepers like Monta Ellis and David Lee fit in the mix?
