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

What are your line-ups? Once again my line-ups are based on the understanding that we are going to suck for one more year but acquire depth and talent. They are in the hopes of getting top3 in 2014 but be competitive in 2013.

KKL is always right. His lineup would probably have Lafell at SG.

"Kansas’ Ben McLemore was pretty much a top three pick on everybody’s board a month ago, but he may be sliding down some boards right now.
In part that is because the smooth-shooting guard out of Kansas didn’t help his cause in some recent workouts, reports Chad Ford at ESPN.com (Insider).


Multiple sources told me that his workout in Phoenix was not impressive; he wasn’t in shape, and he struggled to keep up in the workout. I heard similar things in Orlando. McLemore is in a tug-of-war right now between adviser Rodney Blackstock and his agency Rivals. It’s kept McLemore out of the gym and for the most part, out of workouts. How much will all of this affect the draft stock?


Probably not that much, because teams are drafting on talent (and think it’s the people around McLemore pulling him in different directions that is hurting his cause).
There’s no doubt McLemore is talented. He’s a 6’4” shooting guard, with a silky-smooth shot. He’s a late bloomer and a guy you can say the most overused of draft buzzword about — upside — and be right. But he isn’t great at creating his own shot so he needs to be paired with a point guard (or other shot creator). Our man Rob Dauster at CollegeBasketballTalk has said he thinks the ceiling for McLemore is the 2010 version of Ray Allen — a knock down shooter who can do a few other things and makes a great third player on a very good team.
In this draft, that likely keeps him up high. DraftExpress still has him at No. 2 to Orlando. He’s likely still top three, but we will see."

- PFT Kurt Helin


I would love to grab McLemore at no.4. He's still my no.1 prospect. As much as I'd like to have an all around BIG man like Len, it's too intriguing to think of a 2014 backcourt of Kemba (PG), McLemore (SG), Wiggins/Parker (SF), and MKG coming off the bench as a 6th man or even getting some minutes at PF.
