KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) -The top two picks of next month's NBA draft, according to Joey Dorsey, have already been determined.
Kansas State star forward Michael Beasley, Dorsey says, is going No.1 to the Chicago Bulls.
And point guard Derrick Rose, Dorsey's teammate at Memphis, is going No. 2 to the Miami Heat.
``Chicago's got a lot of pressure on them because Derrick's from Chicago,'' Dorsey said. ``But they're going to take Beasley. I've got the inside. They're going to get Beasley. ... I'm not telling you how I know. You'll see June 26. I can't say any more.''
So Dorsey may have some clarity on the top of the draft class.
But everyone else's fate - including his own - remains quite the enigma.
Dorsey's mission at the NBA predraft camp on the Disney complex near Orlando this week is simple. Everyone who watched the NCAA-runner-up Tigers this past season knows the muscular forward can rebound and defend. What Dorsey wants to show is an offensive game, something that he didn't get to display as much as he would have liked in college.
If he puts it all together, he might join Beasley, Rose and fellow Memphis teammate Chris Douglas-Roberts somewhere in the first round.
``To me, it's a lot different, because I'm not playing with Derrick and CDR,'' Dorsey said. ``But I'm not at Memphis anymore. I can't just be on the low block and wait for a lob. So I'm trying to show everybody I can shoot the ball, pass the ball and put it on the floor and everything like that.''
