Jeff Goodman: Nik Stauskas working out for Charlotte Wednesday and Boston on Friday. Twitter @GoodmanESPN

Well there you go, the first player projected to be a top 12 back.

Based on the names you keep seeing projected to go at #9, it's obvious that 9 is not a great place for the Hornets to be, so package that pick for a much better player than you will be getting at 9 and hopefully swap it for a 1st Rd pick in the teens.

That's been the way I've been leaning as well.

I dont see Cha trading this pick. 

 

Additionally, I think it is pretty clear who they should draft out of who is likely to be available.

I get the exact opposite impression.

Let's recap...

According to a source, a team called and asked if we would be willing to part with our picks (not pick, but picks), we said yes.

Now let's take a look at who are first few workouts were... they were players that you would take at 24 overall or 45 overall.

This leads me to believe that we would be very open to trading #9 if we get a good player back and would be willing to part with all of our picks if we get a very good player back.

I expect a trade come draft day for either the ninth overall pick or all of the picks.

Ovcourse we would be willing if the price (player) was right. 

 

However, I dont see anyone offering us that type of player. 

 

Gonna have to do better than a AA imo.

AA is a Clifford guy... so I'm not so sure.

At number nine, you aren't getting the sure player that Afflalo is. Not to mention that he is a great fit for our overall offense.

#8 WOW!!

Assuming the top 8 guys are gone, just give me:

Stauskas, Harris, or Young at no9.

Nothing / No one is a sure thing. 

 

What you have and can get are prospects, many of which are better than AA at 9. 

 

AA is like a less athletic Hendo with a jumper. Good but not great. 

 

Give me Staus all day over AA.

So what you're saying is that Hendo and Afflalo are nothing a like?

If Hendo had a jumper we wouldn't be even having this conversation because he'd probably be a top 10 shooting guard.

His overall game is good, his inability to score isn't.

Even if Hendo had a jumper, he lacks a handle to put him up in the top echelon of SG's imo
