If the rumor that Otto has a guarantee from the Wizards then McLemore or Len or Noel will be there at 4. Can't go wrong with any of those guys and Bennett and Oladipo are legit picks there as well. We will have plenty of good options at #4.

I can make a rational argument for everybody in the top 10 but Noel.

Can't find the tweet now but I saw a tweet from Chad Forde earlier saying that Cho loved Zeller but was getting resistance by others in the front office.

No Zeller at 4. If that happens I'd vomit. Now if they can trade with the Wolves for #9 and DW fine. Don't think Cody is there at 9 though. They must take Len, Bennett, Noel, or Porter. No to Mclemore and Home depot. However I'd take Olidepo over Mclemore any day.

It is in his blog on ESPN too.

• There is a growing belief that Indiana's Cody Zeller is seriously in the mix for the Bobcats at No. 4 along with Alex Len, McLemore and Otto Porter ... provided that Charlotte keeps its pick.

Bobcats GM Rich Cho is said to be a big Zeller fan, but word is he's having a tough time convincing ownership to take him at No. 4. If the Bobcats were to move a little farther down in the draft, Zeller becomes a strong possibility for Charlotte.

I'd trade down for Derrick Williams and draft Zeller at 9 if he's there. If not ill settle for Bazz.

I can't say I would be to happy.  You just got another Byron Mullens/ Mcbob type.

Apparently I blacked out when Lehigh beat Duke but CJ Mcollum is a really intriguing player. The guy can get and finish at the basket nicely and has good range.

He Reminds me of Jamal Crawford. All shot no defense.

He's my sleeper... If there is a guy that has the potential to be an all-star not named Len, McLemore, or Porter; I think it's McCollum because he is so versatile.

He has the shot to play the two and the ball handling skills/passing ability to play the one.

He is one of the few point guards/shooting guards in the draft (in my opinion) that can successfully play the one or two spot.
