Straight up: Who are you sold on at #9?

149 posts in this topic

Let's say we don't move/trade and we pick, which guys outside the obvious are you definitely sold on for us?

I'm not just saying who will be good but who fits and who makes the most sense.

I've really come to like Harris and James Young (Hardaway-esque at times)

Overall, I find the class outside of the 2s kinda hard to figure out so thought this could be a good draft build up thread.

Whatsayyou??

I am sold on the shooting of Staskas and McDermott but not their defense

 

I am sold on the scoring ability of TJW but not his jump shot or court awareness.

 

I am not really 100% sold on any of them, but if I were they probably wouldn't be available at #9.

 

I do think this is a deep class where you will be able to get a quality player at #9 with several different options

PJ at #9??

 

He may be there at #24.  I don't see anyway we pick him at #9.  Maybe if we move back to middle of 1st round

Stauskas

 

I'm hoping for a Stauskas and Hairston combo come Thursday.. Don't think Hairston will be there at 24 though

I do not want Lavine.  He is a low production work out warrior.  He may end up being the Bismack Biyombo of guards.

 

And would you rather have Ennis over Payton?   I have my questions about Payton, but I would take him over Ennis

Also, I think Vonleh goes ahead of 9 but would love him as well. I'd run to the podium for him. Not a dead on comparison but he reminds me of Ibaka. He could go top-5.

    • Elbows too pointy. Would not bang.
    • On the surface this team seems greatly improved but in reality we added a geriatric at DE and SS. Our LT is bad enough that the Vikings thought getting Remmers in return was an upgrade, and our greatly improved offense includes a rookie RB who dominated the 5th best college conference and a hybrid RB/WR who isn't good enough to stick at either position. That being said, I'm hopeful it works out.
    • First, let me say that I pretty much only watch the NBA during the playoffs (or when I'm absolutely bored and channel surfing, which is very very seldom). I am really a fan of players and coaches and not necessarily teams except for the Spurs. That being said, I do support the Hornets as they are a North Carolina team---the "home" team, if you will.  The problem is I don't see any way that they will credibly compete for a championship (because they really haven't come close in franchise history). Gone are the days of Grand Ma Ma and Dell Curry, but even then one would be hard pressed to really believe. Unless they happen to draft a legitimate, and I mean legitimate, superstar that wants to be here, I can't see it. I go from year to year in June saying "Perhaps this is the year," but reality sets in during December.  Well, perhaps this is the year that they at least become credible. Monk was arguably the best pure shooter in the draft. Can he create his own shot---break 'em down and break some ankles to be a legitimate point guard or 2-guard? We will see. Bacon may be underrated. We will see. Does the other Superman in Charlotte have enough juice to make a credible run and get the Hornets over the hump. I don't know.  It's just hard to believe that the Hornets will actually become truly relevant when you look at their history, and that has to really suck as a hardcore fan.
