Long article: http://www.cbssports...h-the-no-9-pick

 

Talks about all the guys we've mentioned in here numerous times (McDermott, Stauskas, Young, Harris, LaVine), adds in Marcus Smart. Also brings up a potential trade of Henderson, the No.9, and the No. 24 for Aron Afflalo, Andrew Nicholson, and a future second-rounder.

 

Just some reading material to pass the time.

Elfrid Payton should be in the conversation too at no9.


I like Afflalo, but not that much. That deal is just stupid retarded. We're getting raped!!!!

Hendo, no9, and no24? No way. Just sign Hayward or Lance.

thats a rediculous deal 

 

i would not give up the lower pick for affalo but the 24th would be more of the range for a trade of course have to add hendo for salary purposes but no way we give up the 9 for affalo let alone 9 and 24

Other than the Aaron Afflalo part, I agree with him on most everything else. Been saying much of myself, although if I drafted Marcus Smart, it would be with the intention of him mostly playing PG. If he's a better long-term prospect than Kemba, then so be it. I wouldn't even be opposed to trading Kemba now depending on what you could get back. Would much rather have someone like Exum or Smart, anyway, lol. Same with MKG. I don't think the Hornets hae to be committed to anyone but Al Jefferson right now.

 

McSlowfoot is more likely to bust than not, and Nik Stauskas ain't the guy. I've never wanted LaVine, and definitely don't want Randle, either.

 

People love the Draft because it's like a game show, or gambling, but I'd rather see the Hornets go out and pick up some guys via free agency or trades, if they can't trade up.

I like Nicholson when he came out, but we could get a guy at 24, maybe even 45 that could be just as good if not better than Nicholson.

Marcus Smart would be my #1 guy @ #9 but I can't see the Lakers passing on this guy. 

 

Gary Harris is the safest (though not the most exciting) pick @ #9 imo. He is a smart player that is quite good offensively and defensively.

I'd be content with Smart, Harris, LaVine, Gordan, Stauskas, Randle and or even Hairston @ #9, but If I had to bet I say the Hornets end up taking Gary Harris or Aaron Gordan @ #9. 

 

 

...and I dunno about Orlando fans but Henderson, #9 & #45 for Affalo & #12 sounds fair to me.

Not sure about that. Nicholson has quite an advanced post game.

I think we are really high on PJ Harriston. We have worked him out a lot. I would love to get him with the 24th pick but not the 9th. I would love to get the PF from Indiana I think his name is Vonleth? Him or another top PF. I believe PF is what we need the most followed by SF and SG but I'm sure we will get a SF in free agency. I would love for us to trade up to get Jabari Parker but I'm sure it's a pipe dream.

When the Hornets draft McDermott at 9, I will be sprinting to the huddle to read the meltdowns.

The Bobcats always used to mislead people the weeks before the draft with who they'd take.

And I definitely will not be sprinting to the Hornets.com to buy any tickets.
