Bobcats/Hornets Interview Ben McLemore, Kelly Olynyk, Michael Carter-Williams, and Otto Porter At The Combine

Ben McLemore says he expects to interview with the Bobcats tonight.

 

Bobcats have interviewed Gonzaga 7-footer Kelly Olynyk, who figures to go no higher than 11th. Trade-back scenario?

 

 

Bobcats have interviewed Michael Carter-Williams, the 6-6 point guard from Syracuse. He models himself after Jason Kidd.

 

 

Carter-Williams would give Bobcats a bigger alternative at the point. But he's a poor jump-shooter. They already have plenty of those.

 

 

Otto Porter has interviewed with Charlotte, Phoenix and OKC. Says he looks at Cleveland, Phoenix and Orlando as being the best fit.

Olynyk is a scrub who has bust written all over him. Would rather have McRoberts starting up front than him. 

 

MCW seems like a guy who will need proper tutelage and some time to develop. Bobcats don't have that time. They need to draft a few guys that can come in immediately and make some sort of an impact. Trey Burke, Anthony Bennett, Nerlens Noel, etc. 

 

I think Richard Howell would be an excellent pick in the second round. He'd immediately be the best rebounder on the team.

Sorry Michael Carter-Williams, we already have one too many hyphenated mess names on our team.

No to Olynyk. Just no. At best he is a career role player.

I see how their Diabolical Plan is coming together.  We trade back this year and draft either a 7 footer who will get abused down low or a pg who can't score at all.  We tank next season and end up with the first 2 picks in 2014.  We pick Andrew Wiggins #1 and Jabari Parker #2.  We automatically become the greatest team ever assembled as both are supposed to be the next Lebron.  We also change our name to the Charlotte Hornets beginning in the 2014-15 season. 

 

Or the Lakers don't make the playoffs next season since Kobe will be hurt and David Stern rigs the lottery and Andrew Wiggins ends up in LA.

is it sad that scenario 2 seems more legit?
