CBS Sports: What can the Hornets do at #9?

33 posts in this topic

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.

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.

Cody Zeller one year, then Vonleh the next? That would be awkward. Besides, this guy has bust written all over him. He moves like he has cement blocks around his feet. I'd much rather re-sign McRoberts and see if Zeller takes a step. None of these PF prospects in the top 10 are that impressive.

You want a super athlete, freak or specimen in the lottery, from a "potential" standpoint. This guy is none of that.

Is it just me or does Vonleh remind anyone of Okafor? Strong frame, above average athlete, similar mobility.

I would not be upset if he was a Hornet.

i cant see any way in which vonleh drops to us at nine - alot of teams are seeing huge potential with him and id be surprised if he drops past boston. statistically he was one of the best rebounders in college this year, and theres alot of chris bosh in him. 

 

i think in 4 years he will have easily surpassed the offensive stats of okafor. i personally think he's going to be an allstar.

 

as for the hornets next year at the four spot. i think we might have to overpay mcroberts he we want to keep him - plus i guess he will want 3-4 guaranteed years (maybe 4 years/$15m?). im a little torn on who i want there... i think if we could get pau gasol for 2 years, it would be great, or id like to take a risk on someone like ed davis, who i think needs a chance at decent minutes to take the next step... i assume we will fill the starting spot through free agency and hopefully integrate zeller a little more in the hope he can develop into that role in his third year

I honestly think if McRoberts was just slightly more aggressive offensively, he could average 15 ppg efficiently. He has a solid jumper and gets hot from the perimeter.

Occasionally he gets Diaw-ish with his unselfishness. He could stand to take more of his open jumpers and he is an underrated athlete.

On another note, I would be happy with most of the players we could get at #9, regardless of position, except for an extremely overhyped (imo) combo guard from UCLA.

    • I don't feel like we're a sleeper team. We are just mercurial as a franchise- up, down, and in the middle. I really do not know what to expect this year. As it's been said, the O-line is a big question mark. Our interior is good, but the tackle spot is a mystery. I wasn't and am still not high on the Lil Kalil signing, and not because of the contract. He has declined every year since his rookie year. Am I suppose to believe that he has really been chronically injured this whole time and now that he is here with Ryan he is suppose to magically be healthy and perform? I'm not saying it isn't possible- I'm not saying he's def going to suck either. I just have no clue. I think it's a big time gamble from Gman. I hope it works out. And I desperately want to be proved wrong about it too. I hope he fills the hole that's been there since Gross left as a long term solution. And the other thing that worries me is the coaching staff. Everyone talks about Shula but I'm not high on RR. He took zero accountability in his post season presser- as apposed to Gman who acknowledged his mistakes. I've never really liked him- I'm really wondering if Riverboat was just fools gold. He just feels like Fox 2.0- don't think he can get us a Lombardi- which is sad because I feel like our roster can. Again, I hope I'm wrong about this. These two things plus our division- The NFCS will be a dogfight this year. 
    • Yeah we fell asleep..the offensive like ducked and the secondary ducked til Bradbury and the other kid stepped up.. but season was done.. need a healthy o-Lind this year and execute or these new weapons are pointless
