Already? Yes, now that the 2012 NBA Draft has come and go, we, well I can start looking toward the future. Yes, 2013 here we come.


NBA Draft 2012:
RD 1 No.2: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist SF (Kentucky)
RD 2 No.31: Jeffery Taylor SF (Vanderbilt)

Current Roster:
PG: DJ Augustin / Kemba Walker
SG: Ben Gordon / Gerald Henderson / Reggie Williams/ Cory Higgins / Matt Carroll
SF: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist / Jeffery Taylor / Eduardo Najera
PF: Bismack Biyombo / Tyrus Thomas / DJ White
C : Byron Mullens / Desagana Diop

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Needs for 2013: Center, Point Guard, Shooting Guard
-In need of a true big man. Many thinks Bismack can play center, but really? On any competitive team, Bismack would not be seeing any time at the Center position a bit.
-Definitely need to find a legit PG for this team. I love Kemba and hopes he do live up to the hype. If Kemba does then great, we are set but we will still need another PG to back him up, bc DJ will more than likely be gone after next season.
-The addition of Ben Gordon at SG is wonderful, but his statstic has decreased since leaving Chicago and may be a bit small guarding bigger Guards. Henderson is good, not great (nothing special). We could use a Shabazz Muhammad in next year draft; that would definetly be an upgrade.


*Going into 2013, we should be set at two positions in Small Forward (MKG) and Power Foward (Bismack). We should/could look to upgrade the other three positions if we can.

(Players we need to get rid of are: Diop, Carroll, Thomas, and Najera)

2013 Draft Prospects:
1. Nerlens Noel Kentucky, 6'11" 216lbs *
2. Shabazz Muhammad (SG) UCLA, 6'6" 223lbs *
3. Cody Zeller Indiana, 6'11" 209lbs *
4. Rudy Gobert (PF/C) International, 6'11" 200lbs
5. James McAdoo (PF) UNC, 6'9" 226lbs
6. Isaiah Austin Baylor, 6'11" 201lbs
(A lot of nice big men prospects in 2013)

2013 Top Free Agents:

PG:
1. Chris Paul, UFA
2. Stephen Curry, RFA
3. Jrue Holiday, RFA
4. Devin Harris, UFA
5. Jose Calderon, UFA

SG:
1. Monta Ellis, Early Termination Option
2. Tyreke Evans, RFA
3. Kevin Martin, UFA
4. James Harden, RFA
5. DeMar DeRozan, RFA
6. Evan Turner, Team Option
7. Anthony Morrow, UFA

C:
(excluding DHoward and Bynum)
1. Demarcus Cousins, Team Option
2. Greg Monroe, Team Option
3. Nikola Pekovic, UFA

(There's no way we wont be having a top 3 lottery pick. We should once again have the worst record and finally have possesion of the No.1 pick in 2013.)
My reasonable wish list for 2013:
Draft: Nerlens Noel

Yes, the kid with the flattop. By the end of next season college basketball, a lot of yall haters will be jumping with me on the "Fear the Fro" bandwagon. Just saying, trust me.

FA: Jose Calderon PG, and either Kevin Martin SG or Anthony Morrow SG

My 2013 Line Up :
PG: Calderon / Kemba
SG: Martin / Gordon / Hendo
SF: Kidd-Gilchrist / Taylor
PF: Biyombo / White
C: Noel / Mullens

I think Zeller will be the 2nd best big man going into the draft behind Noel. Either one, Im kool, but if have to choose Id take Noel.

Dude Noel is really not that good. I keep telling you this he is a smaller skinnery Marcus Camby.

I rather have Zellers or Austin if we go center.

Don't get me wrong, I like Zeller a lot too. It's just that I think that at the end of next season, the sure consensus no.1 player would definetly be Noel. He's almost the same player as Anthony Davis, just without the athletic ability. He's Anthony Davis 2.0. Its going to come down to either Noel or Muhammad being that player that the team with the first pick just can't pass up on.

Zeller is a better scorer than Noel and will be a great compliment to pair up with Bismack. Noel on the other hand, offense is weak and known for his shot blocking. Sounds like anyone? We were all over AD to be pair up with Bismack this year eventhough his offense was weak. So if Cho and MJ has another chance to take a second coming of AD I think that's who theyll take.

Noel and Bismack both lacked the offensive side of the ball but would that be a great defensive front court to watch though. You gotta have defense in the NBA, just look at the Heat.

My comparison to NBA players is that Zeller is more of a Pau Gasol, while Noel is a Alonzo Mourning. Either one should be an upgrade and a strong piece for this team going into the future but I'm just making my case for Noel. I think we will see Zeller's stock drop a bit next year.

I'd take Shabazz, then again it is entirely too early to begin predicting next years draft

Cody Z will be a stud, you can bank on that. He is your prototypical big man, it's a shame he didn't come to Carolina.

If I could have any player for next year, it'd be Shabazz. I believe the kid is just going to be a star in the pro, especially this year at UCLA also.

But then again, we need a center so bad that if Noel or Zeller is there, we just can't pass it up. Unless if we do get that that 2nd first rd pick and it ends up bring anything close to a lottery pick then we could go Shabazz first and take one of the other big man like Austin or Gobert.
