more than likely.

Nbadraft.net projects this right now

1 dc.gifWashington Ben McLemore Fr. 2 cle_25_1.gifCleveland Cody Zeller So. 3 bobcats_25.gif*Charlotte Shabazz Muhammad Fr. 4 no_25_0.gifNew Orleans Nerlens Noel Fr. 5 pho_25_0.gifPhoenix Anthony Bennett Fr.

we obviously need post players, rebounders especially.

But if we think Shabazz is the bpa, do we take him?

It's been said you should always take bpa in the nba.

What say you?

btw, we are projected to get Portland's first rounder this year....this mock has us taking Gobert,

a seven footer out of France.

I believe that Cho has been quoted as saying something to the effect of "you draft talent, trade for need". So with that in mind I would fully expect to draft Shabazz in that scenario. Which I would definitely approve of.

WE ABSOLUTELY TAKE Shabazz or Mclemore if they are there. Zeller is way overrated and won't make much of a difference for us. We desperately need more scorers. I would love to see one of those two running with Kemba and MKG. They need a scorer like that on the court with them. We will find our post players some other time.

and OMG if we got Shabazz and Gobert that would be the greatest draft ever. Gobert is INSANELY good. Go learn about him if you guys don't know

Zeller should not go in the top 5 IMO.

We will find our post players some other time.

Just like the Panthers will find a WR to replace Smith some other time..?

just saying..

I know we need scoring in the worst way, but we need someone down-low even worse

I dont see Zeller going before Noel and I dont see Mclemore going before Shabazz. If this was the scenario though I would draft Shabazz but I wouldnt have a problem if the team traded back to 4/5 range for one of Bennett/ Noel/ Zeller

    • Anything I do Panthers related by default. My poop is Panthers related.
    • I like MKG, we just have to understand what he is.  And that's a defensive stopper and rebounder.  He can be a solid starter on a championship level team, but it has to be in a situation like Dennis Rodman was in with Chicago.  He has to be surrounded with dynamic scorers that can compensate for his lack of scoring so he can focus on his defense and getting key rebounds.  Otherwise, his best fit is probably coming off the bench. The problem on this team is that we don't have the scoring threats to offset his deficiencies.  Even though Kemba is a good scorer, he's not a guy that can easily put up points in bunches.  He's probably a natural 15-18 point guy, not the 25-30 point guy MKG needs.
