The logic makes sense if Love said that, I just hadn't heard that before. He will be a max guy in free agency for sure.

Flip Saunders have said recently that Love is not going to be move. But, the thing is Love has shown his interested that he wants out of Minny. He has expressed his feelings about wanting more help and hardly played at all this past season. He now, said he's opting out at the end of his contract. If he keeps creating more frustration, Saunders will have to move him now. It's just all speculation but something interesting enough to pay attention to.

Trading all the way down to no.9, I would assume that a guy like Len will be gone long already. In that case, some guys that I'd consider would be: Zeller, Bazz, Caldwell-Pope, and Carter Williams. It would be a great trade down if we're able to grab Zeller at no.9. Like you said, flip a Minny pick for T-Rob.

PG: Kemba

SG: Hendo

SF: Kidd-Gilchrist / Taylor

PF: Derrick Williams / T-Rob

C : Cody Zeller / Biz

or

PG: Kemba

SG: Bazz? Carter-Williams?

SF: Kidd-Gilchrist / Taylor

PF: J.J. Hickson / Derrick Williams

C : Biz

** Draft a guy with the Minny later pick

** Signs FA J.J. Hickson

** 2014 Draft : Wiggins / Parker

Bazz or Carter would be a great 6th man off the bench

Love would fit perfectly for us but it would never happen so I will let the Cavs fans dream on that one. 

 

 

As for your list at #9. Im thinking Bazz or Zeller would be my picks. I like Carter Williams size but hate his shooting and he seems soft for a bigger pg. Caldwell-Pope doesn't seem like a huge upgrade to Hendo. 

 

FA signing JJ Hickson wouldn't be bad at all. He will def not push us out of the lottery next year, but will provide good depth and rebounding

Agree with everything. But, if I'm taking Carter I'm playing him at SG.

ehh a SG who can't shoot on a team with no shooters is a no go for me. I like his potential but feel we need to get some shooters or an inside post game. Carter fills none of that.

A front court of T-rob and Biz makes me sad.

 

A backcourt  of  Kemba and Carter Will is scary bad. We might as well go sign Shaun Livingston and start him.

 

 

 

Bazz as a SG is a bad idea. 

 

 

Just a bunch of Bad line-ups coming from my Hornets nation.

Len is talking to the media right now, I pray to God that Cleveland doesn't take him.

I guess I'd be okay with McLemore, but I was finally looking forward to having an all-around center.

I hate fuging Dan Gilbert. I'm with you I hope they just go with the overhyped Noel and be fuged.

"- Nerlens Noel (scouting report), another option for the top pick, concerned some by weighing in at just 206 pounds at the NBA Draft Combine. That's terrifyingly low for a 6'11 player, but he's apparently bulked up:"

 

 

um...what??????  I don't like the sound of that at all
