-Larry Brown is reportedly extremely high on Stephen Curry, and may be willing to trade up in order to get him. Apparently he views him as being able to play either guard position, even alongside Charlotte?s current group of point guards, Raymond Felton and D.J. Augustin.

Thoughts on this? personally I wouldn't trade up at all for Curry why not Tyreke Evans, Harden or Derozon. Some Curry fans will like this possible scenario though.

We already have an undersized combo guard who can shoot well (DJ). Why do we need another?

Better than drafting another UNC player

I think he's Eddie House V2 or best case Mike Bibby no way would I trade up for him when you could trade up for a the guys I mention in my post or just stay put an take Gerald Henderson, Terrence Williams defensive minded two guards.

If they get him at 12 fine, but no way you trade up for a small, unathletic SG. I'd rather the Cats draft Henderson or Ellington.

Henderson would be a nice get - upside is there. Ellington is a much better all around player, too.

Maybe Brown is thinking a few moves ahead. I'd be surprised if he doesnt make a few trades. DE has Curry going 8 to the Knicks. If the Cats stay at 12 I'd like to see DeRozan, Henderson, or Evans picked.

In my fantasy land, will never happen mind, I'd love to see Brown trade 12 and Wallace or Felton for Beasley or the Clips for Griffin. This team needs a star. No big time FA will come to Charlotte, so Charlotte will have to go all in on a young guy and pray he turns into something special. Its the only way fans will come to the games. Heck, its even hard for me to get interested in the Cats and I was a hardcore Hornets fan when they were in Charlotte.

If he is there at twelve grab him, but on the espn rumor mill it says OKC is looking at him at the number three pick. Also if Brown really wants a shooting guard or point guard then he has options such as Ricky Rubio, James Harden, Tyreke Evans, Jrue Holiday, Jonny Flynn, DeMar DeRozan, Stephen Curry, Brandon Jennings, Jeff Teague, Ty Lawson, Eric Maynor, and Gerald Henderson. Thats a pretty good group.

If were going to trade up we might as well trade up and take Rubio or Harden and go for gold.

I would love to know who Draft Express' source is. Stephen Curry just doesn't seem to make sense for the type of ball that Coach Brown is trying to play.
