Steve Kyler: OKC, Bobcats, Cavs and Lakers among teams that met with Rodney Hood Twitter @stevekylerNBA


I know a lot of people are interested in the Hornets taking Hood or Hairston with their first round pick and it seems as though the team is doing their due dilignece.

Last year Hood averaged 16.1 points per game (on 46% shooting), 3.9 rebounds per game, 2.1 assists per game, and shot a very impressive 42% from behind the arc. Hood had a career high 30 points against ECU last year on 8-10 shooting (80%) a long with shooting a perfect 12-12 from the free throw line.

DraftExpress currently has Rodney Hood going 22nd overall to the Memphis Grizzlies (two picks before the Charlotte Hornets).

I wouldn't want him with the Detroit pick but if him or Hairston is there at 24 we should ****** either up.

He's really good but inconsistent would happily take him with the 24th pick but would prefer Hairston

Update from Bonnell

Rick Bonnell: I'm told Bobcats met with Duke's Rodney Hood last night, so they're obviously planning for possibility they get Detroit's pick.


Rick Bonnell: I get the sense from Duke's Rodney Hood there's a lot of mutual interest between him and the Bobcats. Bobcats met with Hood last night. He said they stuck out as being particularly knowledgeable about his game. Bobcats front office talked to Hood about how much more effective he was when he earned trips to the foul line. That's a big Clifford thing.

What?

Hood's shooting percentage is one of the best in the draft. His offensive efficiency ratings are quite impressive.

I dare you to try and find me a guy that shot above 40% from both two point land and the three point arc.

I don't know if this is a troll post or not. They are nothing alike and Hood has 7 inches on Kemba. 

 

the duke "system" obviously cost Hood some money this year but once he gets with a coach that can properly utilize him I could see him being a very solid player. Running from baseline to baseline chucking threes doesn't really highlight a player like Hood's abilities to pro scouts. I'd love the pick if he's there when we are on the clock. He'd fit a big need.

So what would have to happen for us to get Detroit's pick?

Very unlikely. We need them to fall to the 9th pick in the lottery. Not a good chance of that happening. We have like a 7.6 chance of it happening

I am a little puzzled by Bonnell's tweets, there is no way that Hood is worthy of a top ten pick (Detroit'd pick) in this year's draft with the talent there is, maybe next year... but not this year

One of the teams behind Detroit (teams 9-14) need to jump into the top three.

Everyone has a shot at a top three pick but after that teams are seeded based on record.
