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

33 posts in this topic

Orlando has outlandish expectations for trading Afflalo.  They should have traded him last summer or at the deadline, but reportedly kept asking for 2 first round picks.

 

I seriously doubt we can get him for less than the 9th pick, which would be way too much for a 1 year rental (hes gonna opt out this summer).

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.

 

haha! not a fan of zach lavine then?! no doubt the guy is super athletic, but think he could get bullied on defence and might be too light weight for the nba. 

 

lavine's the perfect example of a kid that needed to stay in college for another 2 years - develop a jumpshot and try and put on some weight.

 

no doubt someone will reach for him - the 76ers spring to mind

players do not need to stay in college. 

 

they either are skilled or should have potential. 

 

you will develop more when basketball is your full time job with the best coaches going against the best competition compared to college.

Unless we trade down and take Tony Buckets I'm starting to warm up to Dougie Mcbuckets

Not a big fan! I wish him the best, but I think he is fools gold.

Like cotton candy. Tastes good, but you can't live off of it.

He is the guard version of Ajinca.

Who knows? Maybe Embiid falls to #9? That is a gamble worth taking.

I'm getting more scared at that draft pick as I hear reports of his work outs.

Today on the radio they said he was getting handled by TJ Warren here.

Of course he was. And TJ Warren will probably be no more than an NBA role player.

TJ Warren reportedly has been handling everyone during 3 on 3 no matter who he has been up against.

To be fair TJ is an insane 1 on 1 player
