Bobcats draft needs

58 posts in this topic

Utah is loaded with what we need....wonder if Cho could get us a big man for one of our conditional future 1'st rounders,

and they take Thomas.

We'd probably have to give up some backcourt player to make that deal, and we don't have the depth to do that.

Is Poythress not a SF though?

Think he is but could play PF also

If we land a top4 my choices are Noel, Zeller, Shabazz and McAdoo.

Anything after that Id go with Tony Mitchell SF/PF North Texas. Then after him I'd go with Steven Adams C, Rudy Gobert C, or Isaiah Austin PF/C.

I'm okay with a "project" player in a big man. We still have Haywood and can take a big guy and develop him behind Haywood. Maybe Adams, Gobert and Austin IMO could be someone like Myer Leonard for Portland.

I want a dominant C, guy who intimidates on D in the post and someone who can score.

I don't know who would fit that description, but I think we'd be pretty well rounded at that point.

Not really a true center but "Nerlens Noel". I'm serious about this kid. Great defender and has high potential to improve his offensive skills like Ant Davis.

Zeller is a great scorer but not as great a defender. He's a Pau Gasol.

I see that Nerlens Noel, McAdoo and Alex Poythress all played well last night

McAdoo is a tweener....great college player, but not big enough for pf in the league, not

skilled enough for sf in the league. Do not want.

I'm not too high on Noel. I really don't think that he's that good. Perhaps he has potential, but he doesn't impress me at all in the games that I've watched.

I like Zeller, but don't love him. I really like McAdoo, but I think that he's more of a hustle player that is really athletic, ala Thomas Robinson. I'm on the fence about Alex Poythress. He hasn't been overly impressive to me, but he does already have an NBA ready body and looks to have lots of potential. Now, Shabazz... that's the guy that I really want at this juncture. I can't wait to watch him.

hey, the whole college basketball season still to come can change our minds, but it's not looking

like a great draft. The good news is, it looks like we may win enough games to not be drafting in

the top 5 anyway.

I have to kinda agree.

We need a pure shooter. Someone that Everytimes he shoot the ball the we're not going to cross fingers that he'll make it. Shabazz can or may be that legit shooter we need.

I just hope to he can be cleared to play sometimes thiis season. Anyone knows if he have or when he'll be able to play.
