Be Daryl Morey, Help me with an article!

I'm writing an article on my blog about a hypothetical NBA expansion team, and what it might look like.  I've had a bit of trouble getting into contact with Rockets bloggers, so I've decided to ask you guys here.

If you were Daryl Morey, and an expansion draft was to happen at the conclusion of the upcoming season, which 8 players would you protect?  You can only pick 8, and not of any of the Unrestricted Free Agents.

So the Players Eligible to be protected (and picked if they aren't protected) are as follows:

Kevin Martin, Luis Scola, Kyle Lowry, Brad Miller, Jordan Hill, Aaron Brooks, Patrick Patterson, Courtney Lee, Chase Budinger, and Jermaine Taylor.

Looking at that list as a fan who thinks he knows a bit about the NBA, my guess would be that the 8 protected would be Martin, Scola, Lowry, Hill, Brooks, Patterson, Lee and Budinger.  That would leave Brad Miller and Jermaine Taylor available to be picked by the expansion team.

Does this sound right to you guys? Does anyone have a differing opinion?

Thanks again everyone, I can't wait for the real NBA season to start.
