I think we need an upgrade at SG (McLemore)

To be honest, I don't see McLemore as an upgrade.

The only thing that McLemore is better at than Henderson is the three ball. I would take Henderson's defense, athleticism, mid-range game (he has a lethal fader), and post game over McLemore's any day of the week. We all saw how McLemore was exposed in the NCAA Tournament.

The only position that I think that can get upgraded in this draft is center and that is through drafting Nerlens Noel.

Unless we land #1 overall and take Noel (still a risk - and would shadow Biyombo's growth) I would hope they could find someone to trade down with in order to stack future 1sts, knowing we still owe one to Chicago soon.

I'm undecided on Hendo. On the one hand I want him to return because I don't see McLemore necessarily as an upgrade, but on the other hand it comes down to how much Hendo demands as to whether it is realistic we keep him or not. If he doesn't price himself out of a new deal, then I'd rather keep Hendo, but if we land McLemore then so be it.

Wouldnt give him more than 2 years $10 mil

I'd be happy to have him back at that price, but he should really be a role player on a good team

They need to keep Henderson. He is one of the few draft picks that they have had who actually turned out to be a solid player. Letting him go and drafting a replacement is a lateral move at best. They need to devote draft picks to improving the play inside.

^ This man know's what's up, the Cats really have to stop making lateral moves.
