I dont believe that no9 is too high at all for Payton. Saw a mock having him go no8 to Sac. He's the Damian Lillard of this draft. Only reason why he's not projected high is bc he's from a small school. Put him at UK and he would probably be a legit top8 pick.

Payton has size and athleticism. A very good floor generator and great feel for the game. Just kinda raw and needs to work on shooting the ball. But , could be a legit PG and the future for a team like Charlotte.

If Cho, MJ, and scouting team know what they're doing Payton should be very high on their list.

 

Chad Ford has Payton going #8 as well.  Not sure if that is the mock you saw or not, but some are indeed projecting him that high

Shooting is not always a thing that can be taught. If shooting is something easily taught it would be something that everyone was proficient at.

I would be excited about Payton at #24, or if we traded back with the Bulls or someone and got him in the mid teens.

But #9 makes me a little woozy lol.

Payton is not that bad. He's not MKG or Biz. Guys like Leonard, Rondo, and even Splitter (FT) have been able to learn how to shoot.

I agree that at 9, it is a risky pick but the potential is there. He've shown that he can play with bigger competition.

Ford had us drafting McDermott and PJ in the 1st.

 

We would have two amazing shooters at least, might not be able to guard anyone, but we could jack up some threes.

 

Seriously though, that wouldn't be the worst first round

Game winning shots, a saving rebound or steal and you don't here poo from the Kemba haters (Chuck, Brent Jensen). Kemba can be killing it for a month. But as soon as he has 1 bad shooting game. Here comes Chuck wanting to trade him for Michael Kaybongo.

Yeah, I am not to high on Hood, and his stock seems to be dropping.  Didn't have a great combine either.

I could live with going offense in the draft. Our problem is offense, not defense. I'm not like WOW!! where I wanna draft and sign very single defensive players bc Clifford is a "Defensive" minded coach.

When a kid continuously proves he can't finish workouts, I don't give a damn how good he is on offense or defense, I don't want him. I'm sure his teammates would love him taking shots away from the other guys that actually work hard in practice. Pass.

6'4 point guard with great passing and ball handling skills. Quick first step on offense, would be a great backup for Kemba I think.


Upgrade over Kemba in a year or two.

I'm not talking about Hood!!!!!!!!!!!

McD and Hairston. Omg


But, my bad. I think I quoted the wrong post.

Talking about this post by Teeray:
"Ford had us drafting McDermott and PJ in the 1st.

We would have two amazing shooters at least, might not be able to guard anyone, but we could jack up some threes.

No I want a player who does more then 1 thing.

We need a offensive wing player. But we need 1 who just doesn't shoot either he helps Kemba with creating for others. Or he can create his own shot so Kemba isn't the only player who can do that. Or they have potential to play good defense.
I just want more then a 1 trick player who will end up coming off the bench a lot in their career.

And again more and more I don't think we're using one pick on getting a veteran. Who can help right away.
