Bobcats Draft Needs

31 posts in this topic

Since the Cats lost tonite they maintain their first round pick from someone out west (i think denver). anyway, what do ya'll think are the bobcats biggest needs? do you think they could fulfill their needs through the draft? if so who, and if not by what other means? Just curious, all the mock drafts don't seem to take "needs" into consideration, at least the mock drafts I've stumbled upon around the internet. IMO, im looking at a scoring guard or a true center. Okafor is considered a smaller center, who's natural position is PF, and we don't have a scorer at the SG position. Raja being a lockdown defender. Any ideas/thoughts?

p.s. I saw some draft boards, on ESPN and others, having us taking Steph Curry, Tyreke Evans, Demar Rozan (sp), Brett Mullins, and even Gerald Henderson.

We need another shut down defender, the defense just wasn't there on a consistent basis this year.

Considering the fact the Bobcats were in the Top 10 in scoring defense, defense might not be the biggest factor. What the Bobcats need is another big man because right now its Okafor, Diaw as the main producers with Diop and Howard coming off the bench. If the Bobcats got another big man that could score down low coming off the bench, it would be huge to take the load off of Diaw and Okafor.

shooting guard, hands down

we only have Raja, after that we have people playing out of position

not to mention he is getting old

Shooting guard for sure, I would love if Steph Curry dropped to us but I doubt it

SG for sure. I think Alexis will be a beast next season off the bench for major minutes. He's average 11 points, 6 boards and 1.5 blocks in 19 minutes per game in the NBDL so far.

I agree that SG is the spot we need the most help at. You can never have enough bigs in the NBA, so another big man that can defend would be nice too.

Gonna say it agian, wouldn't Blake Griffen be an instant help, and a franshise player we could build around?

I like college Steph Curry, but I do not think that NBA Steph Curry will turn many heads.

Also, I hope that Alexis has gained some weight and gotten bulked up with the Sean May diet.

Does Felton stay??? That could be a position we need to lock up and consider if he does not stay.

If the same admin was still in place, just think.... next year we could have Tyler Hansbrough! haha

I do not want Curry, I don't think he will amount to much in the NBA. I would love to have Tyrke Evans or Mullens.

a) we don't need a franchise player.

B) I don't think Griffin will amount to a great NBA player, I see him getting pushed around by bigger guys at the NBA level

c) Griffin is gonna get picked first anyway so it's a moot point

d) We need to be drafting needs at this point and not first available. SG is a more pressing need than another big

i personally would love alexis to fill out and be a big producer and mature into a solid player down low. But i would think sg would be the biggest need. The only problem is that ESPN basketball analysts, like tim legler are calling this draft "the weakest draft in thirty years." Maybe we could find a diamond in the rough....or maybe not.

Gerald Henderson is the guy. While he currently lacks an outside NBA game, he has the size and athleticism to replace Raja Bell when he finally breaks down. The outside touch will come with time.
