PBT says Brandon Jennings available for trade. Would trade #4 for him in a heartbeat. 

 

PBT also says LaMarcus Aldridge wants out of Portland. Acquire him somehow, then I would feel much better about drafting a player like Cody Zeller. 

 

fwiw, Zeller would be a good pick for New Orleans. I know they need a PG, but if you pair Zeller with another big man, his production would probably increase. I just don't trust Zeller as the main inside player on a team. Especially a team like the Bobcats.

I was big on Bennett going into the pre-draft interviews/workouts, but I kind of fell off the bandwagon b/c of his injury... Anyway, I was just watching the NBATV mock and I believe they had us taking Bennett at 4.

I'm still hoping for Porter (haven't mentioned him previously b/c I expect him to be gone), Oladipo, or Zeller if we stay.

No way in hell I take BJ to replace Kemba.

He's progressed every year he's played. If he gets drafted here there's a good chance he could average that with no other prominent scoring pieces besides kemba. Sorry I have faith in someone.

 

He never avg. it in College now he is going to the pro (against better competition) and do it???? Really??

 

I'm going to enjoy spending your money.

Yeah Ok.

 

I'm going to set up some layaway just for your 50 to be the last thing I use to get it out.

I wouldn't argue that, but can you argue he is worse than Zeller?

 

I very well could. Zeller is a whole lot more polished out than Adams. Zeller is a more complete PF which he is offensively skilled, can rebound, and pass. Zeller is on the same level as Len where Adams is more on the line with a Rudy Gobert.

So bet me $50 dollars that he avg. 14 pts a game. Since he is half as good he should avg. half of MJ totals. I say he barely avg. 10.0 points a game. Do you take the bet?

How you feeling about that bet? Avg 14 points so far.

So do I get my 50 dollars now or later?

Haha nice bump.

Oladipo has had a solid rookie campaign.

He just wouldn't have fit in well here. He's essentially Gerald Henderson (and that's not necessarily a bad thing as Henderson has reached his potential, Oladipo has not).

Btw I think KKL is gone unless he's reincarnated as SuperJ.
