I can definetely live with Anthony Bennett. As of right now, he's my guy for the no.4 spot assuming Noel and McLemore are gone.

 

2014-2015 Charlotte Hornets

 

PG: Kemba Walker

SG: Andrew Wiggins/Jabari Parker

SF: Kidd-Gilchrist

PF: Anthony Bennett

C  : Biz/FA

Well we are going to have to spend some money to get to the limit, we might as well find decent players.

a wet dream scenario would be McLemore falling to us, then us getting Wiggins next year.....I know I know we've got MKG, and I'm a proponent of him- but honestly who cares- you take the best player available in the draft unless you have a superstar at that position already, plus we will likely have two more picks next year

 

Kemba

McLemore

Wiggins/MKG/Taylor

PF

Biyombo

 

not a bad young group of guys at all

I like Bennet but I don't think 6'7 PF work in today's Nba. Then you have a really smal front court with him and BIZ.

During the combine, the guys compared him to Larry Johnson.

 

I'd love that pick.

I dont know if I would go out and sign Jefferson. I'd just play Biz along with Bennett. With the no.4 spot, Cho gotta be thinking about next year draft already. It's beyond dumb to not tank the season again and hope for a better player in 2014 (Wiggins, Parker, Randle).

 

I disagree.  This isn't the NFL where you are guarenteed a pick.  We just got the 4th pick, as clear evidence.  The worst team hasn't got the first pick in what, 9-10 years?  Not to mention we need to ride the momentum of name change with some more exciting basketball.   We need to sell tickets.   If we can sign someone like Jefferson, Millsap, or both, we'd be a much better team.  We've never really had a presense down low that can actually score some points.   You CAN get free agents and build a good team in the NBA, it's different than NFL/MLB.    We need to sign quality people right now and THEN hope to get players in the draft.

I have to disagree with you and side with Chuck on this one. In the NBA small market teams can get decent free agents but not star free agents. 

 

2 ways for a small market team to grow in NBA

 

1. Find a superstar in the draft and groom them. Lets be honest, we have been terrible in the draft but are we so different from other teams who have yet to get a bonafied superstar? Cavs, Bucks, Portland, Toronto, Wiz are all teams that have sucked for yrs and guess what they have all had the #1 pick. 

 

2. Be as patient as hell and build your team through the draft. People say the OKC model. We can't say them because they found a superstar in the draft. I say the Indiana Pacer / Memphis Grizzly model. They never found their superstar but after many many yrs of suckage they were able to get a balanced TEAM. 

 

2014 draft is going to be very deep. We can suck as the Bobcats one more year before we are a whole lot better as the Hornets in 2014.

Ok they have found their guy, but it doesn't change the fact that they have been very lucky in the draft and still have sucked. The difference between Cleveland and Charlotte? Both teams have sucked but Cleveland has a glimmer of hope in the future. Now even moreso.
