I'm honestly torn between Bennett and Oladipo. 2 weeks ago Bennett was my guy. The injury and weight gain is concerning. Oladipo can do a little bit of everything, and while he may never average 20 a game, he is going to be able to contribute immediately and contribute on both ends of the court. I still think Burke is the only potential superstar out of all the guys being discussed. That's not to say that someone may still strike gold in the late 1st or 2nd round. 

 

Do not want Len. I know he would fill a need, but he's still raw and is already having foot problems. 

 

For me:

 

1. Bennett

1A Oladipo

 

really hope Burke isn't there. Gotta pick him if he is.

I can almost guarantee it'll be Zeller at 4. Typical Charlotte Bobcats.

 

he's getting a lot of buzz lately around here that's for sure. I would be okay with Zeller if we traded down and were able to acquire another pick in this draft. 

 

I've said this 100x now, I'm not sold on a lot of these big guys being discussed in the 1st round. I wouldn't touch Plumlee or Olynyck. Too many red flags with Noel. What position will Zeller play in the NBA? How durable and raw is Len? 

 

I dunno man

I will kill someone if we take Zeller at 4. Trading down, I'd be fine or will try to convince myself it's okay.

Anthony Bennett.  No question.  Dude will be an LJ clone, and has 3 point range.

Zeller will play the 4, and I think he can be good there.  He compares himself to someone like Aldridge, etc.  He won't be a 5 so we'll still have a need there.  Zeller at #9 after trades is good, #4, IDK.  Then again this draft is weak, every pick is almost a risk, if there's a draft to go risky, it's this one.

From what I heard, Cho is the one pushing for Zeller.

I'm not a big Zeller fan, but fug it we need some big men who can score and he does that.  Hell he could end up being the best big guy in the draft with the injury problems the other guys have

This is true.  Zeller seems to be only one that is truly healthy right now and from I remember, pretty durable.  There IS something to be said about that.  He was one of the few guys that could actually work out for us.  I also heard he was draining 3's like no other during workouts and really impressed.

Zeller is never going to be a star, but he could be a solid 12 and 8 guy I would think.  In this draft, that may be the best you can ask for.
