    Theo Pinson

    I don't think Charlotte will draft Theo. I'm actually not sure he will even be around at 55 to even give us the option.
  2. Oh really? I never read the actual article. Don't have insider, but everyone hornets related on twitter quoting it saying Kevin Knox was the pick so idk. Either way I'd rather have Miles Bridges than Knox

    Rumor: Kemba to Cavs for 8th pick in 2018 draft

    We already have MKG and I personally don't think Wiggins is substantially that much better. He's overrated.
  4. Don't have access to Twitter at work so I can't embed tweets, but if you have ESPN Insider you can read about Charlotte & Knox on Draft Express's new mock draft here: http://www.espn.com/nba/insider/story/_/id/23509884/2018-nba-mock-draft-teams-deandre-ayton-luka-doncic-trae-young-lottery Based on "NBA Intel" the guys at Draft Express and other NBA guys like Steve Kyler are mocking Kevin Knox to the Hornets. Kyler, in particular, said that he's heard that both the Knicks and Hornets are very high on Knox. So much so that he doesn't believe Knox will fall past 11. Take it for what it's worth. I know Knox has a mostly cold reputation among Hornets fans as far as potential fit. That includes me. I buy into the idea of Knox more than Knox himself. His killer instinct just isn't there imo. Guess I better started getting used to the idea of him being a possibility.

    Rumor: Kemba to Cavs for 8th pick in 2018 draft

    Even if it's Kemba for 8 straight up. We keep 11 and all our bad contracts, I'd still consider it. You can package 8 and 11 to move up to 5 or 6.

    NBA Mock draft

    If Charlotte picked Knox, I wouldn't be happy. If Charlotte picked Knox WITH Carter on the board, I might Riot! Lol

    Nothing would make me happier than to be wrong. If that's the case though, he likely won't be a Hornet

    Theo Pinson

    I'm a Carolina fan and as much as I love Theo, he's not going to be a first rounder. If Theo gets drafted, realistically he's going to go in the 45-60 range and maybe more in the 50-60 range. I stand by it though, if he's available when we pick at 58, I'm 100% fine with taking a shot on him.

    Theo Pinson

    If Theo is available at 58 then I'd have no problem taking a flyer on him. I personally think he could be converted to a PG in the NBA. His distribution and playmaking skills were fantastic at UNC. The only reason I might not take him is if we take another wing or big PG like SGA at 11. Too redundant. At that point, I'd like to see a big potentially.

    Charlotte Hornets 11th Pick 2018 Draft

    I'm talking myself into Miles Bridges and I'm not thrilled about it. Damnit.

    Charlotte Hornets 11th Pick 2018 Draft

    Think he has any hope of developing it? His form isn't "bad" certainly not a MKG jumper lol

    Charlotte Hornets 11th Pick 2018 Draft

    The argument for being positionless though is that the game is kind of trending in that direction. When I watch Boston, they literally have guys that can switch and guard multiple positions on defense, lead the break, create offense, etc. The reason I've warmed up on Bridges is because he's built and has a great frame plus I think his athleticism will allow him to guard 3's and 4's for sure and potentially some 5's and bigger guards. I just really don't know how good he can be defensively. He didn't post great steals numbers at MSU. That being said, I have this strange feeling that he's got this high defensive ceiling with the right coaching. The main reason I'd choose different players over Miles (Carter, Mikal, SGA, etc) is that for a player that hangs his hat on explosive offensive play, he won't be the best athlete on the floor anymore and his shooting (right now) isn't enough of a difference maker. There are other guys that fill more distinct roles on the team as it stands. Basically I get the appeal from Miles Bridges, but I'm not 100% there on him being the guy for me right now.

    Charlotte Hornets 11th Pick 2018 Draft

    so mainly a height issue? I get that. I'm ok with his size bc with his frame he can guard multiple positions theoretically. The thing I don't know is what his defensive potential really is. His athleticism is off the charts tho. Kevin Knox might be 6-9, but he's kind of a bean pole. I do like SGA.

    I was cool on Miles Bridges until semi recently. I've begun to warm up on him. Just curious, what about him don't you like?
