This year's draft

7 posts in this topic

What's the deal with picks? I understand if we get into the playoffs, Denver gets our first? If we don't; we keep it. BUT I'm also seeing that we have a 2nd round pick from New Orleans for the Melvin Eli trade and another

2nd rounder from Oklahoma City for the Kyle Weaver trade. So, this draft alone we have 3 2nd round picks? Plus, next year, I believe we got an extra

2nd from Pheonix for the Richardson trade....

With 3 2nd round picks, do you think Charlotte could trade up for a first? I'm not too excited about this year's draft class, but the 2nd round seems even more pathetic.

I don't know how valuable a 2nd round pick is in the NBA. Maybe we could offer to 2nd's to someone who doesn't really need much starting help for a first but honestly. I don't think that WE need a starter. I think we should keep our 2nd's and get solid back up players that fit roles that we need.

or we cud trade those 2nds and Nazr for a POS player to get him off the books so we can sign Felton..

if we have to give up some 2nds to ensure Felton stays, im all for it..

Moving Nazr's contract will take a lot more bait than just attaching 3 2nd round picks as part of the package.

We could make the playoffs as a #8 or #7 seed which would give us the 15th or 16th picks in the draft. This draft is weeeeeaaaaak (not my words, but many scouts). I wonder if we could go ahead and give our pick to Denver in that case even though it is protected.

IMO we need to do whatever we need to do to keep Felton.

Secondly, we need to get rid of Nazr's contract big time.

I seriously think that if we keep our group of players, and keep Felton, we'll make the playoffs for sure next year, especially after an off-season with them all together. Alexis should be able to contribute in the future too.

I understand that the first is more than lottery protected this year, meaning that we will definitely have a first round pick this year. (This is rumor, I can't confirm it).

We could move a first rounder and Nazr to some team for basically nothing. That might be the best thing to do.

Looking at this team, they need a backup SG but have good depth everywhere else. I am not so sure that a first round pick is going to see action next year.

    • I had always assumed she was dardaroarroar
    • elton simpson was monitored over a 9 year period (fbi claims there were breaks but at the least there were still years of monitoring) and at least $132,000 in cash was spent on one informant alone. here's the fbi's version in the immediate aftermath of the shooting:   Three hours before gunmen attacked an anti-Prophet Muhammad event in Garland, Texas on Sunday, the FBI sent a bulletin to local police with a photo of one of the shooters, Elton Simpson, noting that he was "interested in the event," FBI director James Comey said. At the time, the FBI had no reason to believe that Simpson intended to attack the event, Comey told reporters Thursday. Nor did the agency know that Simpson was already on his way there. Comey also said that he does not believe that the police officer who shot Simpson and the second gunman, Soofi Nadir, was aware of the bulletin. He went on to say that while the investigation of the Phoenix gunmen is far from complete, Comey believes the FBI acted appropriately. ..... Two weeks before the Garland event, which invited artists to draw illustrations of Muhammad, the FBI and Homeland Security warned law enforcement agencies across the country that it was at risk of being targeted by Islamic extremists. The advisory noted that supporters of ISIS and other terror groups had posted links to the contest on Twitter. Simpson was reading those posts, and communicated with an American in Somalia who'd called for attacking the event, investigators have said. The FBI then developed information that Simpson might be interested in traveling to Garland, Comey said. The Sunday bulletin followed. ..... The FBI now has hundreds of investigations of potential home grown extremists under way, with cases open in every state. "I know there are other Elton Simpsons out there," Comey said. Finding them, however, is a "very hard task," he said. Investigators can follow messages that are posted on public twitter accounts. But ISIS recruiters are steering people off Twitter into encrypted forums, which the government cannot see, Comey said. "Its the old going-dark problem, in living color," said Comey. He added: "We have hundreds working on it around the clock. But in almost every case of violence, someone saw something. A friend, a family member. Its more important than ever for people to speak up."     ^^^just a reminder for the bolded parts that a federal agent was in the car directly behind them as they opened their doors and began their short lived attack
    • Looks like it has potential. BvS was terrible. I will say the extended version was a better film but still not good. Suicide Squad was one of the worst films I've seen in a while.  That said of course I will waste my money and go see this. I hope they bring back Batman's more cunning qualities in future films. I got the sense that in BvS he was a what you see is what you get type of guy. You don't get the feeling that he has something up his sleeve at all times. Which was something Nolan/Bale had, almost Bond-esque.
