(rumors) Charlotte Bobcats - Clevland Cavs

If we end up with a couple late round first picks, I'd like to see us use one of the picks (or an early 2nd rounder if he's still there) on Andrew Nicholson. The guy has only been playing basketball since he was 17, but he's already well polished. He's 6'10, can block shots, score inside, and can also step outside and hit long jumpers. He plays hard and is very smart. He killed it at the combine.

Keep in mind that we still have our amnesty, as do other teams. So salary dumps could play a big role on draft day this year when it comes to trades. Cho will be working the lines til the last second and my guess is we will be told whom to pick, as well telling the Cavs whom to pick, and move from there. Could be a multiple team blockbuster (crossing fingers).

Keep in mind that big men may be plentiful in next year's draft, and most of them will be better prospects than Robinson is:

This is saying that we would swap our 31st pick with their 24th pick instead of picking up 2 for 1. Less enticing...not sure if want.

I'd do this trade easily.

Obviously you would think that the only reason this the Cavs would do this is to take Beal because they believe that Washington wants him.

I have heard from a few sites that Barnes is the alternative pick for the Wizards.

So after the first three picks we have...

1. Anthony Davis

2. Bradley Beal

3. Harrison Barnes

4. Charlotte gets to take their choice of T-Rob or MKG

T-Rob has been compared to Al Horford

MKG has been compared to Andre Iguodala

24. Charlotte takes their choice between Tyshawn Taylor or Quincy Miller

Tyshawn Taylor has been compared to Jrue Holiday

Quincy Miller has been compared to a poor man's Kevin Durant

31. Charlotte takes their choice between Doron Lamb and Tony Wroten

Doron Lamb has been compared to Jason Terry

Tony Wroten has been compared to Tyreke Evans

So you could possibly have a combination of

PF- Thomas Robinson

SF- Quincy Miller

PG/SG- Tony Wroten

or

SF- MKG

SG- Doron Lamb

PG- Tyshawn Taylor

Either of these would drastically improve our team and would really only leave us with a great lack of talent at center.

The rest of the roster spots can be addressed in free agency with good players.

I personally think that the only place that we won't be at least in the top 20 in is center.

You're not going to get Shabazz unless you're #1 - #3. Odds are the Bobcats WON'T BE. Therefore, they will have a much better chance of landing a better big man next year.

They don't need to draft two PFs in back to back years, and they don't need to draft 3 big men in the 1st Round in 3 years.

Besides, Shabazz is 6'6, Barnes is 6'8. If he was drafted, Henderson would be gone.
