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.

Yeah seems to be the case.

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

Stauskas, Harris, or Young at no9.

    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.  
    • Assholes should've never taken it away in the first place.  Me and a couple buddies had a hookup and were all hyped up and planned out going to it... then the NBA had to get all political and take it out on the city of Charlotte and the fans -- which made no fuging sense.  Seriously doubt we'll even get the chance to go again.
    • 6'6" 255.  He'll definitely have some good mentors with JP, CJ and the rest of the D-Line crew. 255 he'll need to put some weight on don't you think?
